We have to ask: Why aren’t they using infrared mapping at Lake FUBAR to show what is going on with the cap rock and collapsing caverns?  News item: Researchers discover second lost city of Monkey God in Jungle of Honduras

Scientists from the US, the UK, and Honduras using infrared mapping believe they might have discovered a second fabled lost city in the Jungles of Honduras where Monkeys were worshiped as gods.

Global ResearchShock: Fracking Used to Inject Nuclear Waste Underground for Decades

“Unearthed articles from the 1960s detail how nuclear waste was buried beneath the Earth’s surface by Halliburton & Co. for decades as a means of disposing the by-products of post-World War II atomic energy production.”

“. . . . Alleged fracking links to the contamination of the public water supply and critical aquifers, as well as ties to earthquake upticks near drilling locations that are otherwise not prone to seismic activity have created uproar in the years since the 2005 Cheney loophole,” which allowed the industry to circumvent the Safe Drinking Water Act by exempting fracking fluids, thus fast tracking shale fracking as a source of cheap natural gas.”

  1. Who do they think they’re fooling–the uneducated? We see areas with water where there once was none. Why do you think no flyover videos or still pictures are available for public viewing. Texas Brine has spoken, go back to sleep.

    BNSF oil train derails in rural Illinois; two cars aflame.
    Excerpt:
    The incident occurred on what appears to be a major rail line alongside the Mississippi River that handles as many as 50 oil-trains a week, one official said.

      I saw that oil train crash … they are trying to move that product through small towns in Rockland County, NY and everyone is up in arms over it. It seems this product is super flammable … worse than gasoline….

      I think any comment including a link gets spamified (I was off line today).

  2. Holtec wants exemptions to store broken nuclear fuel rods. It is just like General Honore said about the exemptions and exceptions. This means they will be stuck because they can’t safely be moved.
    It is doubtful if they can be safely left either.
    BWR low enriched fuel is 1/3rd of all US nuclear fuel. Basically they don’t even want to check if it is broken. The fuel rods get metal oxides stored in water and radiation makes this become hydrogen and maybe methane gas. Don’t know if it’s enough for them to explode or not. Also they want to use a cheap welding method which makes uneven kissing welds so that the spent fuel holder can collapse. Shape is important to prevent criticality accident. Uranium, Plutonium, etc. in broken fuel rods corrode. Cesium is actually one of the most reactive metals. They don’t want to inspect the materials and are decreasing safety margin on materials by 20%. Really bizarre crazy stuff. This is a one or two man op – the man from India (Singh) who the TVA said offered bribes. He got the Chernobyl contracts and contracts all over the US and even the UK. The casks are thin though it’s almost impossible to find – most tells the over cask which is vented. I have read 5/8ths inch but can’t find it except at San Onofre safety. I thought this deadline was 18 March but is in 28 hours. Feeling like an idiot over here. Memory failure and no one gave me a calendar this year. Normally my internal alarm is better than writing it so I wonder if it was changed. But, sometimes there is a failure. I used to pay my rent that way and once every 2 years I would forget. It is so much non-sense I haven’t known where to start.

    Agency:
    Nuclear Regulatory Commission
    Dates:
    The direct final rule is effective April 21, 2015, unless significant adverse comments are received by March 9, 2015. If the direct final rule is withdrawn as a result of such comments, timely notice of the withdrawal will be published in the Federal Register. Comments received after this date will be considered if it is practical to do so, but the NRC staff is able to ensure consideration only for comments received on or before this date. Comments received on this direct final rule will also be considered to be comments on a companion proposed rule published in the Proposed Rules section of this issue of the Federal Register.

  3. Whoops, actually I think that it is ALL US nuclear reactors. I think it is pressurized and non-pressurized ones. Non pressurized is about a third. They try to trick by calling it Low Enriched but almost all is Low Enriched except some exptal reactors and MOX. GRRR. Sleep deprivation. Thanks for the reblog.
