Dr. Arjun Makhijani Debunks The Nuclear “Renaissance” Scam - Nuclear Is Dead In Japan, UK, US, France And Globally - Zero Carbon, Zero Nuclear, Zero Carbon Renewable Energy Renaissance Is Being Birthed And Growing Fast - Only Countries With Despots/Dictators Support Nuclear Anything

DR. ARJUN MAKHIJANI DEBUNKS NUCLEAR RENAISSANCE SCAM


Dr. Arjun Makhijani, Founder/Director of the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (IEER), and author of the new book Carbon-Free and Nuclear-Free: A Roadmap for U.S. Energy Policy, deconstructs the 'nuclear renaissance' scam and tells how the U.S. can make the transition to a solar economy.

EXELON IS BIGGEST NUCLEAR POWER PRODUCER IN US; CHAIR OF EXELON SAYS NUCLEAR RENAISSANCE IS DEAD

John Rowe, chair of Exelon (the largest nuclear power producer in the US), has said that the nuclear renaissance is "dead". He says that solar, wind and cheap natural gas have significantly reduced the prospects of coal and nuclear power plants around the world. Amory Lovins says that the sharp and steady cost reductions in solar power has been a "stunning market success".[48]

RENEWABLES WITH BATTERY STORAGE ARE HALF THE COST OF NUCLEAR, BUT UK GOVT SIGNS LONG TERM DEAL TO GUARANTEE NUCLEAR AT 400 PERCENT OVER THE COST OF WIND POWER

The UK government just signed an agreement guaranteeing a price of 16 cents per kilowatt hour for power generated by a reactor proposed for Hinkley Point, on the coast at Somerset, England. That fresh contract represents an example, Gundersen argued, of the market price of new nuclear power. Solar power costs six to seven cents, he said, and wind costs four or five cents. Add 2¢ for the cost of a utility-scale Tesla battery, and renewables with reliable storage are still at half the price of new nuclear power.
More at http://www.forbes.com/sites/jeffmcmahon/2015/05/01/did-tesla-just-kill-nuclear-power/

"In February 2014, Amory Lovins commented that:
Britain's plan for a fleet of new nuclear power stations is … unbelievable ... It is economically daft. The guaranteed price [being offered to French state company EDF] is over seven times the unsubsidised price of new wind in the US, four or five times the unsubsidised price of new solar power in the US. Nuclear prices only go up. Renewable energy prices come down. There is absolutely no business case for nuclear. The British policy has nothing to do with economic or any other rational base for decision making.[105]

Costs of nuclear are going up. No one is willing to invest in nuclear. "The nuclear renaissance is out the window. "

New nuclear plants are now TWICE as expensive as other options and the costs are only going up How many people are willing to be exposed to the nuclear radiation meltdown risks, as proven by the multiple failures of TMI, Chernobyl, and now Fukushima mega nuclear disaster?

Who in their right mind would invest in something that is twice as expensive, much more risky, and has no solution for the radioactive garbage that comes out and needs to be guarded for billions of years?

NUCLEAR ENERGY NO LONGER COMPETITIVE IN AN OPEN FREE MARKETPLACE, THREE MILE ISLAND SOLD NO POWER AT ALL IN ENERGY MARKET AUCTION FOR 2019 - 2020

Despite subsidies that are 1000 percent bigger than renewable energy, nuclear energy companies cannot compete in an energy auction place, where the lowest price energy source wins.

Jebus June 4, 2016 'The future is dim': Three Mile Island fails to sell future energy production, again
All the signs are there — like closure of power plants, failure to sell future energy productions and cheaper alternatives — but does it mean that nuclear power is dying a slow death in the United States?

The PJM Capacity Auction provides power generation companies the opportunity to sell the electricity they will generate in the future. For the second year in a row, the Three Mile Island nuclear plant did not sell any electricity at the auction. The sale was for energy production in 2019/2020.

How can an obsolete too expensive, too toxic industry with no answer for nuclear waste survive in a market where no one wants their toxic high priced product?

ENVIRONMENTAL COMMUNITY IS NOT HOLDING BACK NUCLEAR, QUITE THE OPPOSITE IS THE TRUTH, CLOSE TO 200 ABANDONED NUCLEAR PROJECTS LITTER THE GLOBE


Response to an Open Letter on the Future of Nuclear Power
Finally, the open letter suggests that that it is the environmental community that is somehow holding back a nuclear power surge. Nothing could be further from the truth. A US “nuclear renaissance” has failed to materialize, despite targeted federal subsidies, because of nuclear power’s high capital cost, long construction times, the lower demand for electricity due largely to improvements in energy efficiency, and competition from renewables. Unless Hansen, et al. want the US to join the society of planned economies, the better approach to which we can all agree is to internalize the cost of carbon emissions and let energy efficiency, renewables and nuclear compete on a level playing field. We and the Hansen group obviously disagree on who the winners are likely to be, but let’s not delay further in finding out.

ALEC BEING USED BY CARBON/NUCLEAR INDUSTRIES TO TRY AND KILL RENEWABLES, WHILE INCREASING THEIR OWN ENTITLEMENTS AND CORPORATE WELFARE AT THE SAME TIME


"But while ALEC is an important front group used by utilities to weaken or eliminate pro-clean energy policies, and a valuable tool for utilities and others to lobby state legislators across the country, numerous new and 'history-free' lobby groups have been formed to give the impression of a plurality of voices:

"The real genius of this attack by special interests is the widespread use of additional front groups to lobby, spread disinformation, and pressure decision makers to eliminate clean energy policies. 

And of course, while renewable energy is attacked in the name of 'free markets', much greater subsidies to fossil fuels go unchallenged:

"Despite positioning themselves as ideologically-focused on smaller government, dozens of these organizations aggressively denounce policy investments in clean energy as market-distorting and unnecessary, while remaining silent on the far-larger, decades-old stream of taxpayer dollars and policies supporting oil, gas, and coal interests."

State legislation goes 'under the radar'

One of the most important things to note about the report's findings is that most of these stealth attacks on renewable energy are coming at the state level rather than the federal level.

There's a good reason for that: State legislation rarely makes national news, making it far more likely for state citizens to have little to no idea what's happening at home.

The stealth attacks have been very successful so far, but EPI's new report could easily change that. Now that the lights have been turned on, we'll start seeing the dirty energy cockroaches running for cover.

The nuclear industry is trying claim it is green and capture all of the energy credits and money coming out of the carbon tax market.

FUKUSHIMA FIVE YEARS AFTER: Health Researchers Turn Blind Eye to Casualties by Joe Mangano - Janette Sherman for CounterPunch.org

Last month made five years since the nuclear plant at #Fukushima, Japan suffered meltdowns. The release of highly toxic radiation from the reactors was enormous, on the level of the #Chernobyl disaster a generation earlier. But Fukushima is arguably worse than Chernobyl. There were four reactors that melted down, vs. just one at Chernobyl. And the Chernobyl reactor was buried in a matter of weeks, while Fukushima is still not controlled, and radioactive contaminants continue to leak into the Pacific. In time, this may prove to be the worst environmental catastrophe ever.

"Japan, which had 54 reactors in operation, closed them all to improve safety features. But the nation’s people, who had suffered from the two atomic bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, are adamantly against nuclear power. As a result, despite strong efforts of government and industry, only three (3) reactors have been brought back on line.

"While the people struggle against leaders to determine the nuclear future of Japan, many questions remain. The most crucial question is, without doubt, how many casualties occurred from the 2011 disaster?

"Public health leaders have addressed the topic with ignorance and deception. A search of the medical literature shows only two studies in Japan that review actual changes in disease and death rates. One showed that 127 Fukushima-area children have developed thyroid cancer since the meltdown; a typical number of cases for a similar sized population of children would be about 5-10. The other study showed a number of ectopic intrathyroidal problems in local children – a disorder that is extremely rare. No other studies looking at changes in infant deaths, premature births, child cancers, or other radiation-sensitive diseases are available.

" ... The same pattern occurred after prior meltdowns. The 1979 meltdown at the Three Mile Island nuclear plant in Pennsylvania was followed by a total denial that anyone had been harmed. The first journal article on changes in cancer cases didn’t appear until nearly 12 years after the meltdown; it showed a 64% rise in cancer cases within 10 miles of the plant during the first five years after the accident. The authors, from Columbia University, blamed this increase on stress and psychological reactions to the disaster.

"After Chernobyl, the same corruption of scientific investigation occurred. The 31 emergency workers who helped bury the red-hot reactor and died from high exposures became almost a mantra (“Chernobyl caused only 31 deaths”) despite the massive amount of fallout it dispersed across the globe. A 2009 compendium of 5,000 articles, published by the New York Academy of Sciences, estimated about 1 million deaths from the meltdown occurred in the following 20 years. Unfortunately, nuclear supporters have made the assumption that nobody died from Fukushima, while churning out study after study on how a meltdown affects mental status – and no other part of the body.

"But the truth is that Fukushima radiation, a mix of over 100 chemicals found only in atomic reactors and bombs, has caused considerable harm. University of South Carolina biology professor Tim Mousseau has made multiple trips to Japan, collecting specimens of plants and animals. He and colleagues have published numerous journal articles showing DNA damage and actual disease near the plant. So if plants and animals are affected, it is logical that humans are as well. ..."

Putin wants twenty-five new reactors for Russia
Maybe, the reason is that even though the purported goal of such marathon tête-à-têtes with the nation is for the president to tap directly into the Russians’ sentiments, hopes, and concerns, decisions that affect environmental well-being of the Russian population are routinely made with no regard paid to the opinion of independent experts, or that of the general public. Countries where questions about nuclear power were allowed to be part of vigorous public debate, including via national referendums – Austria, Italy, Germany, Lithuania – opted out of new nuclear construction. In Russia, one has little prospect of even participating in a public hearing on a new reactor project, much less of a meaningful dialogue on its merits.

FRANCE IS LOSING IT'S SHORTS DUE TO NUCLEAR - 2014 FINANCIAL LOSSES IN AREVA EXCEED STOCK VALUE OF COMPANY BY HUGE AMOUNT

France is the world leader in nuclear. How is that working for them? It turns out that France is losing it's shirt, it's shorts and everything else, due to the reliance on nuclear energy. There is a bottomless black hole of money losing nuclear plants sucking up all of the nation's wealth, treasure, blood and sweat at this point.

France Warns of Nuclear Industry Shake-Up After Areva Loss
...."expected a 2014 net loss of about 4.9 billion euros, or $5.6 billion, compared with a loss of €500 million a year earlier."

Areva has a stock market value of 3.9 Billion

Just in ONE YEAR, the financial losses exceed the value of the company by a LARGE margin.

How long will taxpayers keep on funding a bottomless pit of money losing, toxic, deadly nuclear plants?

FRANCES NUCLEAR INDUSTRY WOULD BE BANKRUPT TODAY EXCEPT THAT THE GOVERNMENT OWNS 83 PERCENT OF THE COMPANY, AND TAXPAYERS ARE BEING FORCED TO PICK UP THE TAB FOR THIS MONEY LOSING DARK AND RADIOACTIVE PIT


2015; "To understand just how far the French nuclear industry has fallen in recent years, look no further than the value of EDF and Areva. Since 2007, EDF’s stock price has fallen more than 70%; Areva’s by more than 85%. EDF is 34.2 Billion Euros in debt. Areva’s debt is much smaller, at 5.8 Billion Euros, but Areva is valued at only 3 Billion Euros (less than a third of the cost of the Flamanville or Finland’s Okiliuoto-3 EPRs now under construction). Last year, it lost 4.8 Billion Euros. If Areva weren’t 83% government-owned, it almost certainly would have declared bankruptcy by now."

France has been a world leader in nuclear power, deriving almost 80% of its produced electricity from nuclear reactors. Following the 1974 oil shock, France embraced nuclear power by building 58 nuclear reactors in an effort to be energy self-sufficient. Where do the French see themselves as energy consumers and producers today and what is the future trend for the French after a 40 year investment in production of nuclear power?

From one expert to another, Arnie Gundersen of Fairewinds Energy Education interviews independent international energy and nuclear policy consultant Mycle Schneider to get the scoop on the French nuclear scene. A resident of Paris, Mycle has provided nuclear energy consulting services to countless international institutions, governments and NGOs.

DW Documentary Hardly any country seems to love atomic energy more than France. It's the world champion of nuclear power, and generates around 75 per cent of its electricity in nuclear power plants. Warnings about potential risks tend to fall on deaf ears. 

In some cases, just getting involved in protests against nuclear involves its own risks. Jean-Paul Simon is a farmer from Cirfontaine, who ended up in court because he lent farming equipment to people protesting against nuclear power. The farmer’s equipment was seized by authorities. 

Jean-Paul Simon is still waiting for its return. The country’s oldest power plant is in Fessenheim on the border to Germany. The Fessenheim plant has been involved in more ‘incidents’ than any other in France. But residents seem largely untroubled. And apart from plans to distribute iodine pills and information leaflets that look pretty out-of-date, the city appears to be ill-prepared to cope in the event of a serious accident. How come France has such faith in nuclear power? 

This documentary takes viewers across the country and features both supporters and opponents. It takes a look at how in France children appear to be raised to take atomic for granted - nuclear power plants near the Loire river, for example, organize children’s activities such as candle making in the shadow of the cooling towers."

FREE MARKET CAPITALISM CANNOT AFFORD AND DOES NOT WANT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS; ONLY A FEW COUNTRIES WITH DICTATORS, DESPOTS AND CORPORATE OWNED FASCIST COUNTRIES FORCE EXPENSIVE TOXIC NUCLEAR ENERGY PLANTS ON THEIR CITIZENS

There are only a few countries with nuclear weapons and not many more with a lot of nuclear power plants. Any country that adopts nuclear power and/or nuclear weapons becomes fascist, because the military industrial complex becomes too powerful and too controlling.

What is fascism?




Pure Capitalism relies only on free market forces to move and manage which company or industry survives. The nuclear industry is not Capitalistic, because it is totally dependent on taxpayer support, loan guarantees, corporate entitlements and laws which give it absolute immunity from all of the harm and deaths that it causes.

Because no insurance will cover anything nuclear or radiation related such as nuclear plants, no business will touch them without extensive government support. There is no answer for the radioactive garbage, which is again paid for by taxpayers, not the industry. 

Russia is not Capitalist, as it includes a Communist party, A Socialist party and it has nuclear power and weapons. 

North Korea is a 'pure' form of top down Communism, plus it has nuclear power and weapons. 

China also is a form of top down Communism, married to Predatory Capitalism, and it has nuclear power and weapons.

The UK still has firm roots in a despotic King/Queen, absolute top down hierarchy/laws, and is has a large assortment of nuclear power stations and weapons.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Kingdom#Government


The US is a fascist empire, controlled and run by Predatory Capitalistic billionaires at the top of huge globalist monopolies, which control all aspects of life, media, politics, education, etc. 

By definition, nuclear power plants are either top down 1 percent controlled dictator, despot, Communist, Socialist, and/or Corporate Fascist inspired projects, nothing more.  A free market would not support nuclear power plants, because they are at least twice as expensive as the next nearest competing clean energy source, as provided with evidence by expose articles above.

Why would any person with any common sense freely choose to pay DOUBLE the normal rate for energy, and then be left with nuclear waste, negative health consequences and huge nuclear disasters?

WELL FUNCTIONAL DEMOCRACIES ARE ABANDONING NUCLEAR AND MOVING INTO RENEWABLE ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES, MOSTLY BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT ONLY CHEAPER, BUT MUCH CLEANER AND HEALTHIER FOR 7 FUTURE GENERATIONS


Wikipedia; On March 17, 2011, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that Israel was now unlikely to pursue civil nuclear energy.[25][26][108]

Switzerland has abandoned plans to replace its old nuclear reactors and will take the last one offline in 2034. 

Anti-nuclear opposition intensified in Germany. In the following months the government decided to shut down eight reactors immediately (6 August 2011) and to have the other nine off the grid by the end of 2022. 

Renewable energy in Germany is believed to be able to compensate for much of the loss. In September 2011 Siemens, which had been responsible for constructing all 17 of Germany's existing nuclear power plants, announced that it would exit the nuclear sector following the Fukushima disaster and the subsequent changes to German energy policy. Chief executive Peter Loescher has supported the German government's planned energy transition to renewable energy technologies, calling it a "project of the century" and saying Berlin's target of reaching 35% renewable energy sources by 2020 was feasible.[21]

In March 2011, Alexander Glaser said: "It will take time to grasp the full impact of the unimaginable human tragedy unfolding after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, but it is already clear that the proposition of a global nuclear renaissance ended on that day".[117]

There are numerous options available to meet the need for electricity in a carbon-constrained environment that are superior to building nuclear reactors".[110]

PUBLIC OPINION IS AGAINST NUCLEAR AND PRO RENEWABLES

Global public support for energy sources, based on a survey by Ipsos(2011) taken 2 months after the Fukushima Disaster.[79]

FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR DISASTER CAUSED THE DEATH OF THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY GLOBALLY, FOR GOOD REASON



Following the 2011 Japanese Fukushima nuclear disaster, authorities shut down the nation's 54 nuclear power plants. As of 2013, the Fukushima site remains highly radioactive, with some 160,000 evacuees still living in temporary housing, and some land will be unfarmable for centuries. The difficult cleanup job will take 40 or more years, and cost hundreds of billions of dollars.[53][54]

The Fukushima nuclear disaster hasn’t helped either, because radiation from the accident has turned up in water and milk in the United States.[93]

US NUCLEAR INDUSTRY CONSISTS OF CORPORATE FASCISM AND EXTORTING MONEY FROM TAXPAYERS TO SUPPORT A DEAD INDUSTRY THAT SHOULD HAVE DIED A NATURAL DEATH LONG AGO



The US nuclear industry is Fascist, controlled and promoted for the most part by Conservative Republicans who in turn are elected, lobbied, controlled and paid for by the nuclear industry. (In 1966 Republican Senator Thomas Kuchel said of the Conservative movement, "A fanatical neo-fascist political cult in the GOP, driven by a strange mixture of corrosive hatred and sickening fear, who are recklessly determined to either control our party, or destroy it."[4])

PT April 30, 2015 "Capitalism would never sustain nuclear power which depends on the government to steal huge amounts of money from the taxpayers and then gives that money to the nuclear industry.

Nuclear energy is exorbitantly expensive. The fuel cycle and capital construction is not sustained by any investors. The nuclear waste storage is paid for by the citizens who up paying through nose for power they never use, and for cleanups plus storage of toxic wastes that will last for a million years. The decommissioning of a nuclear accident is paid for by the citizens raped by forced government taxation. No insurance company will cover a nuclear accident, only the government and civilians, but NEVER the nuclear industry. The health care costs in the US are huge because the population is so compromised by nuclear radiation."


STAYING ADDICTED TO NUCLEAR POWER MEANS THE END OF ALL LIFE ON THE PLANET WHEN THE NEXT SUPER SOLAR STORM HITS

Dr. Arjun calls a lot of the nuclear industry renaissance something like whistling while walking past a graveyard. 50 years after launching the first nuclear reactor, the industry is saying that without a huge infusion of government money, there will be no renaissance. Why should precious resources be given to something that still cannot stand on it's own, after 50 years of development, and continuous failures?

THE ANSWERS ARE ALL THERE - THERE IS NO NEED FOR NUCLEAR ANYTHING

Via Earl Bramley-Howard "People can put an end to this madness themselves by cutting waste (30%) with insulation etc, installing a solar water heater & solar PV on the roof, plugged into the local grid could produce up to 100% of domestic needs and a micro-wind turbine where possible.

The grants and taxbreaks paid to the nuke industry, if used for 'renewable energy' would provide MORE energy than the nukes could ever produce. Building Nuke stations takes more than 10 years and 'renewables' are deliverable (and needed) NOW"!"

"In the end, you're gonna get what you deserve. 

In the end.

No solution, no way out out of this, all as one? Daunting as it sounds, the battlefield calls us from all around.

People get up!

Hold your ground, everybody stand up!

Don't let resistance down! *Guitar solo* I have forsaken it all, just to hear Your sweet call. I know I know I am found, but you have taken my crown. I know that we are all dead, but I know that we are in debt, with The one who loves to hate. Let's get up, let's not be ghosts!"
