Nuclear Phobia-shuts down Reactors and Uranium mines

In a word with you, Analyst talk, Japan Apocalypse, Live Stream Videos-Latest Reports, Nature and Environment, Space and Science on May 14, 2011 at 2:20 pm

Japan's building of Reactors in siesmic zones has bolstered anti-nuclear actvism

Aronite Thinking is that-

Few care to remember that Japan was a Nuclear Techno-Extremist. It defied even common sense overconfidently by building Nuclear Reactors in a Siesmically Hyperactive Japan and along hiostorical Tsunami Pathways.

But Nuclear Phobia had got a boost by its meddle and hoping to eradicate an entire Industry and a non fossil fuel sustainable Energy generation technology.

For countries like Israel and India, this means unlilateral Disarmament of its Nuclear capacity, with disasterous consequences. This down grading of their nuclear capacity would be going to build up the same of its foes who care a hoot for anti-Nuclear activism.

Before asking India to step down its Nuclearisation and strip its capacity, they must convince that comparison with Japan’s ground realities hold true for her. And whether they would be equally be able to persuade her nuclear foes to like wise down grade.

Hamaoka Nuclear Reactors Begin Shutdown in Southern Japan

Japan’s Chubu Electric Power company has started shutting down its nuclear reactors in Hamaoka. It’s at the request of the Japanese government. The plant, which lies on two tectonic plates, is in an area highly likely to be hit by an earthquake in the next 30 years.

Hamaoka nuclear power plant, located 120 miles south of Tokyo, started its temporary shutdown on Friday, after an unprecedented request by Japan’s prime minister.

Prime Minister Naoto Kan said this was due to the plant’s lack of defenses against major earthquakes and tsunamis.

Kan said there is an 87 percent chance of a major earthquake within the next 30 years striking the area where the Hamaoka nuclear reactor is situated.

Videoflash-Swiss Superman- Jetman flies over the Grand canyon

by RussiaToday on May 11, 2011


Swiss adventurer Yves Rossy on Saturday completed a flight over the Grand Canyon, in the US state of Arizona, in his custom-built jet suit – his first such flight in the U.S. Rossy performed the stunt on Saturday with little fanfare, before a small group of team members, and his sponsor, Swiss watchmaker Breitling, announced the successful flight on Tuesday and released footage.

He was airborne for about eight minutes, soaring 60 metres above the canyon rim on the Hualapai Reservation.
A planned Friday flight before reporters was cancelled after Rossy determined it would be too challenging without any practice runs. The US Federal Aviation Administration had given him the green light less than an hour before the scheduled stunt. Rossy’s sponsor. Rossy flew up to 305 kilometres p/h before deploying his parachute and landing on the canyon floor

Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has released footage from inside the crippled nuclear power plant in Fukushima. The pictures, filmed on April 29 but only released on May 4, show some damage inside the Unit 1 building but no water leaks. The operator was preparing to install air purifiers inside the Unit 1 reactor to reduce radioactivity by 95 perc ent over the next few days, allowing workers into the area. Meanwhile, high radiation levels up to 100-1000 times more than normal level were detected on the Pacific seabed near the Fukushima plant. According to a latest statement from TEPCO on Tuesday, it’s the first find of contamination on the seabed since the tsunami.
