In this presentation, Part Two: Economics of Nuclear Power, Mycle Schneider, an independent international energy and nuclear policy consultant and lead author of the annual World Nuclear Industry Status Report, provides an economic analysis of the cost of nuclear power including data using charts and graphs.
In the decades after World War II, the U.S. government and licensees dumped tens of thousands of containers of radioactive waste at dozens of dump sites in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, often sealed in stainless steel drums that were expected to eventually deteriorate. A Journal review of federal and other records shows there are questions about the exact locations, contents and condition of waste containers, along with concerns about potential threats to the environment and public health if seafood gets contaminated. Federal officials say that testing done over the years hasn’t produced evidence of harm.
Matters of Cosmopolitics: On the Provocations of Gaïa Isabelle Stengers in Conversation with Heather Davis and Etienne Turpin Isabelle Stengers’ varied research interests, compelling publications, and breadth of influence make her one of the most important writers of our time. Her early training as a chemist and her collaboration with physicist Ilya Prigogine allowed her to productively and critically intervene in the discourses and practices of scientific knowledge production. She has published extensively in collaboration with other writers on topics including psychoanalysis, politics, feminism, philosophy, and science, although her primary concern remains the relation of the latter two. Attending to the specificity of laboratory work, Stengers considers this model of knowledge production to develop what she calls an “ecology of practices,” thereby situating scientific knowledge as specific, local, and evolving, while extending the idea of practices and practitioners to other fields through her notion of “cosmopolitics.” “One aspect of the cosmopolitical proposal,” according to Stengers, “is thus to accentuate our own rather frightening particularity among the people of the world with whom we have to compromise.” The strength and breadth of Stengers’ force as a writer comes from her training as a philosopher, particularly her careful explications of the thought of Alfred North Whitehead and William James. From these early pragmatists, she has retained efficacy as a central, guiding political principle, against more popular notions of choice or free will.

El alcalde de Hanara, Yukiei Matsumoto, explicó que se han desarrollado programas para el retorno de la población a Fukushima y para despejar sus preocupaciones.
Following the atomic bombs exploded over Japan in 1945 a second crime against humanity took place, writes Chris Busby: the deliberate falsification of science to hide the dangers of ionising radiation, perpetrated to quell public opposition to a new age of nuclear bombs and energy. The fraud continues to this day, but finally the truth is winning out.
https://vimeo.com/97663518 It’s an honor to be here, in so many ways, and I want to begin under the title of this talk with three stories that are too big but also not big enough. The Anthropocene, the Capitalocene, and my favorite, the Cthulucene. The Cthonic ones, the not yet finished, ongoing, abyssal, and dreadful ones …
Godzillas galore, including last year's Hollywood version, stomp on buildings, thrashing about and breathing fire, in a video game going on sale globally mid-July. But don't expect any references to radiation, the mutant reptile's trademark affliction.
When the 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster happened, and especially when the Fukushima nuclear power plant explosion happened, before that I already had ideas for a film and this story, but because of that happening I was able to expand and deepen the story that I already had in my mind, and that ultimately came out to about a 90-minute, feature-length story.
