Fukushima Should Be Remembered
June 1st, 2016
Some may have never heard of Fukushima (Wikipedia) while others have heard very little. The event received a 7 (the highest level) on the International Nuclear Event Scale. The only other event to be classified a 7 was the Chernobyl (Wikipedia) meltdown in Russia in 1986. I didn’t hear about Fukushima Daiichi on the news I heard about from a buddy who lives in California; a distant neighbor of Japan where the incident took place on March 11th, 2011. You tend to feel too close to a nuclear plant when the evidence of it’s mishap can be found an ocean away.
Fukushima doesn’t surprise me all that much. It’s just another example of man’s complacency with the public well-being as long as the money is rolling in. We’re still not sure about what the health hazards will amount to but we know for sure the evacuation of all the residents comes with negative consequences for innocent people. “We know from Chernobyl that the psychological consequences are enormous. Life expectancy of the evacuees dropped from 65 to 58 years — not [predominantly] because of cancer, but because of depression, alcoholism and suicide. Relocation is not easy, the stress is very big. We must not only track those problems, but also treat them. Otherwise people will feel they are just guinea pigs in our research”. (Japanese health and radiation specialist Shunichi Yamashita)
What does surprise me is how obscure the importance of the event has become. A lot of nuclear programs went to the chopping block because of it but it’s a decision that should still be on the table today. Nuclear power is a viable option as long as “We the People” are involved every step of the way. I believe we can build perfectly safe nuclear plants with the public on oversight. That’s not to say I want to. I don’t trust anything except the sun that burns that hot. ( By reading the Wikipedia page or watching the video the complex is made simple and that’s the way all things should be in an informed nation. There’s always the person beside you who will know a little more than you and the person who will know a little less. Together we can police our leaders and have our say. A core meltdown is a fairly scary event to come to terms with but lets not think that we don’t have the ability to build a nuclear facility that works. We should never sweep a failed undertaking under the carpet. It should be front and center in our planning process. Maybe you don’t like the idea of contaminated fuel rods in our environment, that’s fine but leave it on the table while thinking of better.
I’ve got it stuck in my head that if you can create perpetual motion you can create perpetual energy.
It seems to me that this video shows us a turbine of sorts. While I don’t believe in free energy there wouldn’t be a reason to charge an arm and leg for producing this type of electricity. You better believe that we could create electricity this way there’s just not enough money in it for the powers that be.
A solar hydrogen house is an expensive setup that will pay for itself. This guy claims to have an engine that runs on 80% water. I don’t know if these videos are credible but I do believe it’s possible. The way I understand it is oil companies buy up patents by the fistful to keep fossil fuels in big business. Is it reasonable to believe no-one’s come up with anything better in 157 years? There’s battery power but those things are no blessing to the environment.
Informity isn’t a word but it should be. It’s what every American needs to fulfill our birthright; the pursuit of happiness. Informity puts “We the People” in charge of our destiny and keeps the pursuit of happiness right on course.
What’s best for these kids and their kids after them? Wouldn’t it be nice to have an economy that’s driven by that question? Occupational Parenting. Until next week; keep your homes well.
