Cancers in Japan and the West Coast of the United States has skyrocketed since the Fukushima disaster, particularly thyroid based cancers and among children. Mushrooms (which soak up radiation like a sponge), milk (that deadly strontium 90 clings to like glue), and cheese have found to have been contaminated. To what degree is hard to tell because Obama shut off the testing of food after the disaster at the behest of the bottom line. Obama also allowed the amount of radiation in food to reach levels that mimic the Mad Max movie and are so high that no other nation allows anything even close. That is why it is ok to sell tuna and sushi with tumors on it for food consumption. Absolutely every single tuna caught in the Pacific Ocean was found to have been irradiated, and since even one spec too small to see of such radionuclides can kill, is any amount safe?
Now that we have a sane president in the White House who wants to cut subsidies for business’ that do not produce, life may be good for those that know the need to see nuclear power erased from practice and shuttered forever. Subsidies exist because nuke plants cost way too much to even insure, being the sitting bombs that they are. The headlines have said that Trump is trying to save nuclear power by making it safe, but since that is not possible and the only reason that they exist is because government funds them, they may be on their last legs. Trump has happily taken down the ridiculous “climate change” jetsom from the White House (dot gov) website and as the nation moves to clean coal and safer oil drilling methods, the needs for risky nuclear power should dwindle, with any luck. Imagine if Trump had to do what Obama should have and, while not forcing an evacuation, did the right thing and warned those on Americas West Coast that it is deadly to remain. If a reactor unitl falls in Japan, which is likely, that is what he will be facing. Alex Jones and Busby have called it a possible life extinction event.
Even if the global warming crowd was correct, there are doctors such as Helen Caldicott who is nothing short of a raging leftist opposed to nuclear. She thinks that missiles are shaped like men’s members and that it is why men like warfare, she thinks that man is warming the planet, and she is all but unlistenable when it comes to whining about Donald Trump. What would such a Green Party card carrying member have to say about how nuclear power plants “save” the environment? Well this doctor who is no friend of patriotism or nationalism (therefore we are not quoting someone who is biased to the right….she openly hates the right) says in a book called “Nuclear is Not The Answer” that
- The real costs of nuclear power are prohibitive (and taxpayers pick up most of them)
- There’s not enough uranium in the world to sustain long-term nuclear power
- Potential for a catastrophic accident or terrorist attack far outweighs any benefits
…AND THAT IT LEADS TO GLOBAL WARMING! That is right lefties, if your planet is warming, nuke plants make it worse.
