Neverending Nuclear Nightmares

China is having a nuclear plant problem resulting in significant radiation leaks. And we know how transparent China is: 

Cohen, Z. (2021, June 14). Exclusive: US assessing reported leak at Chinese nuclear power facility. CNN. https://edition.cnn.com/2021/06/14/politics/china-nuclear-reactor-leak-us-monitoring/index.html

(CNN)The US government has spent the past week assessing a report of a leak at a Chinese nuclear power plant, after a French company that part owns and helps operate it warned of an "imminent radiological threat," according to US officials and documents reviewed by CNN.

The warning included an accusation that the Chinese safety authority was raising the acceptable limits for radiation detection outside the Taishan Nuclear Power Plant in Guangdong province in order to avoid having to shut it down, according to a letter from the French company to the US Department of Energy obtained by CNN.

  1. China has had a major nuclear accident. People in the world need to cut back gluttonous energy consumption. Superbugs are in the world we havent even heard of are here. These things are only going to grow worse in the world, with the effects of nuclear and other pollution on our immune systems . Climate change is wreaking havok with natural systems. Dementia, heart disease, cancer are exacerbated by nuclear and industrial pollution.


    China is a mess as are all nuclear countries. Bad nuclear accident there. The Taiwanese pro-bejing party, is pronuclear. The more conservative Taiwanese party in power is antinuclear. How ironic is that?

    This is a left leaning writer but what he says is true. The Authoritarian, imperialist government of the USA sucks, so Do the nuclearist authoritarian governments of china, Russia, and Britain. A lot of this left-right, tug of war hype, is just crap. Big authoritarian states, with so much power, tend to screw over the world and their citizens, no matter what.

    I know Radionuclide pyrophoric residue, global warming, hydrocarbon residues and their inherent pollutants that have built up, in the environment, are contributing big time to the developed countries wildfire problems. So are CO2 emissions. No amount of right-wing political, propaganda or pronuclear propaganda ,will sway me from those  well documented and well studied, occurancess. It takes millions of tons of hydrocarbons each year, to process and haul uranium for nuclear fuel. It is not a hyrocarbon free technology. It has to be mined and processed with hydrocarbons. So does plutonium. Nuclear fuel, has to be hauled on large diesel fuel ships, to be shipped around the world. Who told him has to be hauled and processed at large chemical factories around the world. The amount of nuclear waste it contributes to the world is amazing.

    Dangerous nuclear power plants blow up. They are the worst energy source of the world. As bad as or worse than coal-fire. Solar and wind are the best. Germany the USA and China use wind solar and other technology to great benefit.

    People in the world need to cut back gluttonous energy consumption. Superbugs like covid , mrsa, valley fever, parsites, super fungus, tuburculosis, super bacteria and viruses we don't even know about, or heard of.

    These things are only going to grow worse in the world, with the effects of nuclear and other pollution on our immune systems . Climate change is wreaking havok with natural systems. Dementia, heart disease, cancer birth defects, will grow worse from gluttonous use and, proliferation of radionuclides, pesticides and all the other poisons into our water, food ocleans and air . We are also damaging and destroying, the natural systems and life on earth we are dependent on. Things like the bees and and insects, the flora and fauna of the oceans.. How sad
