China, Japan and Germany Generated More Electricity From Disrupting Renewable Energy Sources; Nuclear Only 2.6% of Global Energy Supply, Both Fossil Fuel And Nuclear Industries Are Dead On Arrival (DOA) Due To Toxic Poisons They Emit

TRUMP IS ATTACKING AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL BY PROMOTING DIRTY, TOXIC AND DEADLY COAL, OIL, FRACKING AND NUCLEAR, WHILE OPPOSING ALL RENEWABLE ENERGY FORMS, ENERGY EFFICIENCY, CLEAN AIR, CLEAN WATER, ETC


Instead of going forward, Trump is trying to drag America back into the Dark Ages of the 1800's when robber barons, kings and despots ruled with an iron fist, war and dirty, toxic energy sources. 

COUNTERPUNCH: "Trump’s Attack on America the Beautiful
Now that Trump has hoodwinked America’s Middle/Poor Class voters, he has turned his attention to a much larger issue, the destruction of America the Beautiful. With the exception of perfectly groomed golf courses, Trump hates environmental protection. He’s out to get it.

According to the Ocean Conservancy, as of March 5th: “Over the weekend, we learned that the Trump administration plans to gut NOAA’s budget by nearly $1 billion. These budget cuts aren’t just ‘trimming the fat’ they’re cutting straight to the bone.” Thus cutting back crucial communication between the health of the planet and the public, as satellite data, climate research, and coastal management are thrown into jeopardy.

Twenty-four hours earlier, massive cuts to the EPA were announced. Before the era of the EPA, magazines like Time ran stories about Cleveland’s Cuyahoga River on fire. It was 1969 and the Cuyahoga River was declared a fire hazard because of its oil-slickened feculent, grimy surface. It caught fire 13 times and thus served as a real life-real time sub-natural lobby for creation of the EPA in 1970 and then passage of the Clean Water Act in 1972. Today, the Cuyahoga is clean.

Metaphorically, the EPA is “Mr. Clean” America.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS TRYING TO UNDO A DISRUPTION, AND STOP THE RENEWABLES TIDE, WITH A TINY TOY SHOVEL, BUCKET AND CLAIMS OF GOING BACK TO 1800's CLEAN COAL TECHNOLOGY WILL FIX EVERYTHING


President Trump has added his weight to the obsolete coal, oil and fracking industries, plus nuclear industry, trying to revive them with artificial life support systems. What he is trying to do is to cover a gaping chest wound with a band aid, paid for by taxpayers. No investor will touch nuclear energy anymore.

But the 1 percent billionaires like Donald Trump and his buddies all support nuclear, as long as taxpayers foot the bill, guarantee the 1 percent their mandatory HUGE profits and 400 percent cost over runs, plus no answer for nuclear waste.

The 1 percent are greedy, psychopathic monsters, who will profit off of genocide if allowed to do so.

President Trump is a fake leader, because he pretends to represent the 99 percent, but is actually a greedy, sociopathic wolf in sheep's clothing. His interest is in making the rich 1 percent richer, and the poor can suffer, while voting for him, because he says all the right things.

Where is the evidence and proof of this?


IS TILLERSON AN AGENT FOR PUTIN'S PETROPOWER?

MADDOW; "Rachel Maddow reports on Exxon's history under Rex Tillerson of pursuing business interests that were counter to the interests of the United States in countries like Chad and Iraq.
VIDEO: https://youtu.be/e99Va86h5Vw 16 min.

Ok, it’s not the weekend yet, but we have a lot to cover. Get coffee. I’ll wait.

While Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, was CEO, “Exxon has frequently and reliably actively worked against the interests of America.”

Do we expect that Rex Tillerson will change now that he is Secretary of State?
What are the implications?



MADDOW: "Exxon needs US policy change to cash in on big bet on Russia
VIDEO: https://youtu.be/HWRz9saLBcI 20 min

If you are not watching Rachel Maddow’s series of analyses of the Russia/Putin/Trump/Tillerson nexus, you really, really, really should be.

I hope she has a bodyguard. Seriously.

Below, consider the wider implications of the GOP war on expertise. It’s not just about science.

It’s about people who know stuff. People who respect facts and truth and experience more than they respect the words of an autocrat. These are the true enemies of the Republican Party, and they are being systematically rooted out of the US government – with potentially catastrophic consequences.

NUCLEAR UTILITIES NOW BEGGING FOR CORPORATE WELFARE AND BAILOUTS, BUT ALSO FIGHTING TO DENY ANY MONEY GOING TO RENEWABLE ENERGY



Jebus November 7, 2014 "Exelon must make case for bailout
Not so long ago, Exelon, which runs six nuclear energy plants in Illinois, was extolling the merits of an open market for power as its profits rolled in. Now, with power prices plunging, Exelon has lost enthusiasm for the open markets it championed in the 1990s and wants the Legislature to devise a new formula that will protect its profits, quite likely driving up utility bills for homeowners and businesses. The company says it needs to pull in as much as an extra $580 million to avoid having to close several of its power plants. Suddenly, a little government intervention is looking good.

Conservatives are usually opposed to 'big government', but when it comes to protecting monopoly corporate profits, these politicians and even some Democrats have no problem with dictating top down rules, laws and corporate pork barrel projects to keep huge corporations alive that should die a natural death, such as nuclear power plants for example.

SINCE PRESIDENT CLINTON ALMOST GOT IMPEACHED FOR CONSENSUAL SEX IN WHITE HOUSE, WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN TO PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP? 

Over at Jeremiah’s Vanishing New York, Jeremiah took some photos of this wondrous piece of street art.

The posters read:

“I did try and fuck her. She was married.


I moved on her like a bitch,

But I couldn’t get there.

And she was married.

You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful.

I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss.

I don’t even wait.

You can do anything…

Grab them by the pussy.

You can do anything.”

The President of the United States of America

That’s a fact.

Now that sounds like a leader that huge corrupted toxic poison promoting corporations can get behind... 

Do you hear the sound of something yellow trickling down? 

REN21 RENEWABLES GLOBAL STATUS REPORT SHOWS RENEWABLES ARE ON AN UPWARD DOUBLE DIGIT GROWTH S CURVE, WHILE NUCLEAR AND FOSSIL FUELS ARE SINKING INTO THEIR DEATH THROES


Global status report on renewables and their growth
VIDEO: http://youtu.be/SS65ZP8pWYs 57 min.

According to the World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2013, "China, Japan and Germany – three of the world’s four largest economies – are following this trend and generated more electricity from renewable energy sources than from nuclear in 2012.

In a sense, Germany’s energy transition has received much of its boost through the political decision to phase out nuclear power. Not only does this policy offer the best planning security for investors but it also eliminates significant barriers to innovation when it comes to other generating options and energy efficiency measures. It is a model worth considering for other countries."

2014- NUCLEAR ONLY MAKES UP 2.6% OF GLOBAL ENERGY SUPPLY; THAT TINY GAP COULD BE MADE UP WITH EFFICIENCY INCREASE AND PLUGGING IN MORE RENEWABLES

Look for the tiny red square dot in the graph below... That is what nuclear power is globally, as far as energy production goes.



Germany accomplished it's green goals by building on voters putting the Green Party into a position politically, where it could influence national politics enough to make it possible for a phase out of nuclear power. 

Germany has a form of democracy that counts the votes of everyone, compared to a winner takes all approach in the US. The US suffers from the problem of both major parties being controlled in large measure by huge monopolistic carbon/nuclear corporations, in both elections and politics. 

Despite the US being behind other countries in terms of switching to green, zero carbon renewable energy production, it can still accomplish a zero carbon goal. So how can this goal of zero carbon, zero nuclear be accomplished, despite road blocks from the top down 1% control, via the carbon and nuclear monopolies? 

Top 100 Global Warming Denialist Groups Are ALL Funded By HUGE Corporations

In the US, on a local level, communities can easily accomplish the goal of switching to 100% zero carbon, renewable energies, including using hydrogen power as a storage medium for fuel, when other forms of renewable energy are not available.

CITY OF BERKELEY VOTES TO CLOSE DOWN ALL NUCLEAR PLANTS IN USA VIA RESOLUTION


The city of Berkeley in California voted to close down all nuclear plants in the US. If enough cities do this, it can influence state and national politics. 

The Berkeley City Council voted on a resolution to decommission California nuclear plants and to transition to green non-nuclear renewable energy generation sources. This model city resolution supports closing and decommissioning all California nuclear plants. 

The resolution also supports transitioning to green, zero carbon non-nuclear generation sources. It asks Governor Brown to call upon the California Public Utilities Commission to take action. It urges President Barack Obama and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to reverse their support of nuclear power. It asks to stop loan guarantees to the nuclear energy industry. 

The resolution asks the governor to shut down nuclear facilities operating in seismically active areas of the U.S. It asks to establish a moratorium on building new nuclear reactors and investing in clean, renewable energy. It insists that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission withhold license renewal for Diablo Canyon, plus all other nuclear plants, military, research and public reactors included, until seismic issues and safe off-site permanent storage are resolved and implemented.

See resources available online for organizing in your community and getting your community city council, or county board of supervisors to do the same thing. All change happens from the bottom up. City by city, county by county, make it happen. If not you, who? If not now, when?

CARBON FUEL AND NUCLEAR ENERGY ARE DOOMED INDUSTRIES; DEAD ON ARRIVAL (DOA)


According to the New York Times, coal and nuclear are both doomed, for very obvious reasons. The article points at studies that show renewable energy source can provide 80% of US energy by 2050, using CURRENT technology, while also reducing carbon emissions by 80%.

NUCLEAR PLANT GOES BANKRUPT INSTEAD OF CLEANING UP THEIR MESS, LET TAXPAYERS GET HOSED TO 'DECOMMISSION' PLANT


stock April 5, 2015 Zion nuclear will be bankrupt before cleanup is done
The balance in the Zion Nuclear Power Plant decommissioning trust fund was about 30% lower at the end of 2014 than it was the previous year according to a report filed by ZionSolutions with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission on March 30.

The Report on Status of Decommissioning Funding for Shutdown Reactors—due annually—indicated that there was a total of $280.2 million in the trust fund on Dec. 31, 2014. Last year’s report showed a balance of just over $400 million. These plants cost around $2B in 2014 dollars to decommission.

SUMMARY


Help your community set a LOCAL goal of being 100% powered by zero carbon, renewable energy and zero nuclear power within 5 years. Go deeper here....
