#Fukushima farce reveals nuclear industry's fatal flaw by: Damian Carrington #KeepingTheLidOnAtomic eXplosion!

#Fukushima farce reveals nuclear industry's fatal flaw by: Damian Carrington #KeepingTheLidOnAtomic eXplosion! | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
Keeping the lid on costs when the task is to keep the lid on a slow motion atomic explosion is an impossible challenge
Once upon a time, when the nuclear industry was shiny and new, it simply burned uranium.

Via Prof Brendan Godley
Marian Locksley's insight:

As the false nuclear dawn fades, a new brighter horizon may be revealed, where the intrinsically safe and therefore ultimately cheaper technologies of energy efficiency and renewable energy can used to build a power system fit for the 21st century, not one harking back to the 20th.

'They covered the entire river & looked like snowflakes': 220,000 pounds of #fish #poisoned in #ChineseRiver in latest #pollution #scandal  25miles! | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
Locals said dead fish covered the surface of the Fuhe River in Hubei Province, central China, and stretched for about 25 miles.
Marian Locksley's insight:

Inadequate controls on industry and lax enforcement of existing standards have worsened China's pollution problem, stemming from three decades of breakneck economic growth. 

High-profile incidents this year involving dead animals in rivers - not only deaths attributed to pollution but also carcasses dumped by farmers after die-offs at farms - have added to public disgust and suspicions about the safety of drinking water.

Marian Locksley's insight:

What about the ‘Arctic treasure trove’ in the sense of the unique ecosystems, flora, fauna, habitats and biological diversity in the region, and not in relation to the deep pockets of multinational companies coming to invest in the region? Even without the added burden of increased economic activities on the region’s fragile ecosystems, how can we preserve this unique region in the face of the changing climatic and thus environmental conditions?
