The whole nuclear progam was the insurance plan the devil got to stamp his seal of approval for our human species. Now we are dependent on it and they are everywhere. We have literally raised Demons from hades to create steam to give us electricity. We cannot contain them and their waste last for Eons. Are you friggin kiddin me. Unfortunately our entire human dynamics masks the nuclear power pattern. Our entire society would have to let go of the current system entirely without any back up plan to release this corruption that rots our souls.
Whats with out is within. And our very own interpersonal dynamics reflects society.

Well said, magamud. I keep thinking that we are experienceing Ancient Technology and an Ancient Plan Gone Bad -- with incomprehensible and unfathomable corruption. I really wish for this madness to be made right -- without a hard landing. Unfortunately, if there is some sort of a regime-change and a paradigm-shift -- it's probably going to be done in a very stupid and disruptive manner. I have tried to envision going to heaven -- without first going to hell. Hope Springs Eternal.

I believe over the eons we having been looking too deeply into matter and not profoundly enough in our Hearts. This unbalanced the world into deceit and corruption and plunged us into complete ignorance of who we really are. There must be a way back to Source as from Source we are born.
Ukraine President Launches Chernobyl New Shelter Construction
CHERNOBYL NUCLEAR POWER PLANT, Ukraine, April 26, 2012 (ENS) - Ukraine's President Viktor Yanukovych today launched construction of the New Shelter Confinement that will be placed over the damaged Chernobyl nuclear power plant. The construction launch was timed to mark the 26th anniversary of the explosion and fire in Chernobyl Unit 4 that resulted in the world's worst nuclear power plant accident.

To date only a red commemorative arch has been completed in addition to a temporary shelter hastily built under hazardous conditions immediately after the accident.
"We are witnesses to a historic event in the transformation of the Object Shelter into an ecologically safe system: the construction of the arch of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant," said President Yanukovych.
The one billion euro New Shelter Confinement is intended to prevent the Chernobyl complex from leaking any more radioactive material into the environment. The nuclear power plant site is to be cleared by 2065 under a Ukrainian law passed in 2010.
Originally planned for completion by 2005, under the current schedule, assembly of the New Safe Confinement will be completed in summer 2015. Then the new structure will be slid over the present steel and concrete structure.
"This project's successful implementation will ensure that the surrounding area becomes environmentally safe and that there are no radiation leaks into the atmosphere," said the President.
Included in this presentation and PowerPoint is a discussion of how nuclear power plants work, how to cool a reactor during an accident, the effect of hot particles when inhaled, and concerns involving the long-term storage of nuclear waste. This presentation took place at the Nuclear Power Conference held at the University of Vermont July 23, 2011.
Arnie Gundersen, Fairewinds Associates: Where that bulge [in Unit 4] is located indicates it's something called a first mode Euler strut buckle defect. That means it's likely a seismic problem that came with the initial earthquake or perhaps one of the ones after that. When you see a building buckle like that, it's actually called a first mode Euler strut buckle. And it's caused by seismic induced stress. So of course the industry the has been saying all along, "Well these plants withstood the earthquake perfectly well." But buckling like we are seeing in unit 4 is an indication that perhaps they didn't ride out the earthquake anywhere near as well as we thought.
Interview with Arnie Gundersen EcoReview June 26, 2012
Arnie and Maggie discuss their recent travels to Italy to take part in and to view an opera on the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant accident, entitled "La cortina di fumo" ("the smoke curtain"). Arnie and Nobel Peace Laureate Dr. Shirin Ebadi first participated in a symposium about the "Smoke Curtain" regarding the governmental smoke curtain that covers the truth about nuclear power accidents. Ms. Harrington and the Gundersens discuss the impact of the Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima Daiichi disasters on the environment and people's health.
Taking a drive around Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. This ginger-red color was widely observed around Chernobyl in pines, as they are notorious for cesium uptake. Fallout tends to occur in a leopard-spot pattern. The color change in pines has been observed all over Michigan since May of last year. We stopped at 3 of the worst trees, and there was no pine beetle damage on this particular day, as well as all the other trees we have checked in the past year.
Nuclear power at record levels, despite Fukushima disaster CBC | Posted: 07/06/2012
Sixteen months after the nuclear disaster in Japan, electricity generation from nuclear power worldwide has reached record levels, with a reactor construction boom likely to push those levels steadily higher.
“Fukushima has delayed nuclear development by three or four years,” as countries re-evaluate safety around nuclear power, says Luis Echávarri, the director general of the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA). “But construction continues.”
In the immediate aftermath of the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami that led to meltdowns at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant, the total global operating capacity for nuclear-generated power dipped from about 372 gigawatts of electricity (GWe) — equivalent to about 14 per cent of the world’s electricity — to roughly 304 GWe, largely due to Japan and Germany switching off their nuclear plants.
However, a year after the meltdown, the amount of electricity generated from nuclear plants worldwide had risen again and is at an all time high, according to Echávarri.
The World Nuclear Association estimates that at least 73 GWe in net new capacity will be added by 2020.
The same can be said for nuclear plant construction. According to the NEA, a branch of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, there are more nuclear reactors under construction now than before the Fukushima meltdown and hundreds more are planned to go into operation in the years to come.
Japan itself shut down all 50 of its active reactors for inspection after the Fukushima meltdowns, but is embracing nuclear power again.
Due to the demonstration he makes here this tape of Galen Winsor seems to make him credible. I'll keep looking for further information from other sources as well that could back this information up though. I haven't found any yet . I am not an expert in that field at all so would welcome people of expertise to make a point here. If anyone has more on this please add it to the thread. For such a controversial subject there is need for more than one source imho.
Galen Winsor is a nuclear physicist of renown who worked at, and helped design, nuclear power plants in Hanford, WA; Oak Ridge, TN; Morris, IL, San Jose, CA; Wimington, NJ. Among his positions of expertise he was in charge of measuring and controlling the nuclear fuel inventory and storage.
Galen Winsor has traveled and lectured all over America, spoken on national talk radio, and made several videos exposing the misunderstood issues of nuclear radiation. He shows that fear of radiation has been exaggerated to scare people … so a few powerful people can maintain total control of the world’s most valuable power resource. Filmed by Ben Williams in 1986.
In the video, you can watch Galen lick a pile of highly radioactive uranium off the palm of his hand and ignite a chunk of plutonium into a shower of flaming dust. The guy also drank reactor cooling pool water for fun and liked to go swimming in the pool to relax. He also spiked the basement flooring of his own home with enough radioactive material to send any Geiger counter reading off the scale to disprove the fear mongering surrounding radon at the time.
Galen surmises the regulations and fear mongering that surround radioactive materials are in place to prevent the widespread adoption of nuclear power in local small scale neighborhood/home based reactors. Galen also points out that hot nuclear “waste” can be effectively turned into a safe power source through thermionic conversion, which is how the U.S. submarine navigation network was powered. The heat it gives off can also be used to safely heat homes.
He points out that nuclear “waste” is worth roughly $10 million (in 1986 dollars) a ton if it were to be reprocessed to collect its useful isotopes, so all of this talk about trying to bury it is a sham. He says the power companies are holding all the waste with the intent of playing the plutonium futures market. The “waste” could be stored above ground in already constructed buildings meeting all the regulatory requirements without the need to have these outrageous basalt mines dug into mountains. The only reason he can think of for these underground vaults is to hide bodies/evidence that the state doesn’t want uncovered.
At its core, he says federal controls over nuclear material is about maintaining power and control over the masses through the denial of self-sufficient power sources. Obviously if one had a personal sized power source that was cheap and efficient, they wouldn’t need to be connected to the “grid” for anything. The power grid is the control grid our rulers use to keep us under their thumbs.
He also says Three Mile Island was an intentionally created disaster, and that a core meltdown could not melt its way deep into the Earth.

Just to help you out Mudra since Arrowwind took a swipe...
Simi Valley California, about 45 minutes from Los Angeles by car, was the site of the worst nuclear disaster in U.S. history in 1959, and the amounts of radiation leaked to the environment and atomosphere were more than 240 times that of the accident at 3-Mile Island.
Odds are you never heard of it.
The information only started coming out 20 years later and only because of an accidental discovery.
