Global free trade has turned the US into a garbage can. We suck down some of the stupidest import items, remember the flood of teddy bears from China? And in return, we dismantled our industries and now have to be like any pathetic third world nation and take in nuclear waste from rival traders who run huge trade surpluses with us. Here is the latest example: export power Germany is shipping their nuclear waste here.
This was voted on by the GOP guys in Tennessee. Remember Al Gore? He was replaced with right wingers. Not that Al would have done any different: he is for nuclear power to save us from a planet that would be as warm as say, 3 million years ago before the first Ice Ages. Not only is this nuclear garbage coming here, it is going to be BURNED here! EnergySolutions gets permission to incinerate German radioactive …and here is the news in Japan about this: German radioactive waste approved for Tennessee – The Mainichi Daily News.
People living on the route this garbage will travel are very upset because Radioactive waste is to pass through Hampton Roads. I hope they riot. They should, at least, block the roads with their cars or lie down on them. Germans do this all the time! Germans get rowdy to stop nuclear waste and it isn’ just smart Germans, it is also the surrender monkey French who fight back fiercely: Nuclear waste dodges French protests on way to Germany. Too bad many Southerners won’t read commie stuff but if they did, they could learn tactics from the left when it comes to stopping right wing corporatists: Rad Journal – germans protest nuclear waste shipment.
The media here likes to ignore this stuff so if one doesn’t look closely at foreign news, one would never know that citizens in Europe have terrorized their governments into being very careful about nuclear matters. So, the poor people in Tennessee have been spared these radioactive transports entirely because the leftists in Europe risked their lives to stop this! But few in Tennessee know of this sacrifice. Here is a pre-Fukushima article about these very same shipments that are now going to rain death on Tennessee: Anti-Nuclear Protest Reawakens: Nuclear Waste Reaches German Storage Site Amid Fierce Protests – SPIEGEL ONLINE .
Eleven trucks carrying radioactive waste from German nuclear power stations arrived a day late at their destination, a storage site near Gorleben in northern Germany, early on Tuesday morning after thousands of anti-nuclear activists tried to stop the convoy.
The protests were far stronger than during the last nuclear shipment to Gorleben in 2006 and are a response to growing calls from the ruling conservative Christian Democrats and from German industry to reverse the decision to phase out the country’s nuclear power stations in the next 15 years.
At the weekend more than 15,000 people took part in the protests which involved holding up the trucks with sit-down demonstrations, blocking the route with tractors and chaining themselves to concrete obstacles placed in the road.
See? Tennessee citizens can do this, too! They have tractors! Chains! They can copy the Germans. I would strongly suggest this. I have successfully stopped projects this very same way, years ago. Once, we wanted to stop a project and we voted to have only women and the elderly be chained across a road. The police saw that we outsmarted them, they couldn’t haul these citizens off (this was back in 1978, not today with the modern police state) so we won.
I would love to see the people of Tennessee do this. It would be a first step in the direction they must take if they want to survive for this is the cracked open door for crap to flow back into our country like some boomerang monster. All the pollution that was generated overseas to produce imports will come here again as garbage! Sheesh.
Here is the GOP reason for betraying the people of Tennessee: Tennessee’s Radioactive Budget; Getting Jobs Back on Track; Better …and here is a sarcastic editorial about this: Tennessee To Be the Proud Owner of 1000 Tons of Radioactive German waste.
And last of all, another nuclear waste story: Israel reveals it has returned dozens of kilograms of nuclear waste to U.S.
Horev did not specify the exact amount of waste that had been returned, but according to estimates, Israel has sent back at least dozens of kilograms, probably more, of 93% enriched uranium, which was used to power the Sorek reactor.
This toxic stuff is extremely dangerous and hard to dispose of and is a huge problem for us so of course, we are not charging Israel a penny for processing their nuclear waste. Thanks. This is one monster that grows and grows and never goes away. It is the last thing we need. On the other hand, this is supposed to be how the Jews there prove they are not turning this stuff into bombs. On the other hand, they do NOT tell us if this is ALL the nuclear bomb material. No, I am assuming they keep what they need and send us the excess to deal with here in the US for the next 100,000 years.
