False hope: radiation monitoring in the Fukushima area

Watch Dr. Gordon Edwards keynote speaker at the Nuclear Labyrinth 2012 Conference in Huron Ohio, Oct. 4, 2012. He talks on all things nuclear on the Great Lakes. Incredible overview of nuclear issues, from mining to waste to weapons…

Thinking about Thorium Reactors? Risks include: the risk of nuclear weapons proliferation, the risk that reactors could unleash catastrophic amounts of radioactivity (particularly from intentional terrorist attacks or acts of warfare), the unsolved (unsolvable?!) radioactive waste problem, the astronomical expense of RDD (research, development, and demonstration), and the environmental ruination downwind and downstream (as well as up the food chain and down the generations) from reprocessing facilities.

More Iraqi babies suffer birth defects caused by weapons More than half of all the Iraqi babies surveyed were born with a birth defect between 2007 and 2010. Munitions using depleted uranium - a byproduct of the nuclear industry - were used by the US military.

Renewables and Conservation

Ignore the sound and fury: renewables are on a roll Despite the very vocal naysayers who claim that renewable energy is everything from too expensive, too unreliable, too downright dangerous, the reality is that new wind and solar energy projects are getting built, reducing pollution, providing power, making money and creating jobs. And, this is happening the fastest in places where governments have put policies in place to support it.

The sickening truth about wind farm syndrome Hilltop turbines are being blamed for myriad maladies. What is the truth behind these outlandish claims?


Take Action!

Hydro Quebec cancels Gentilly-2 Nuclear Rebuild project! Ontario should follow their lead and cancel the Darlington rebuild. Send a letter to Energy Minister Bentley here. Thank you!
 
The NDP are asking what your priorities are, and what questions you might have for the Premier. So let’s tell them – say no to the Darlington re-build!  yoursay@ndp.on.ca. (please cc me)
