No Nukes News

Dec. 5, 2011 - Please pass this onto a friend!

 <> Nuclear Power Goes Rogue - This spring, Germany
permanently shut down eight of its reactors and pledged to shutter the rest
by 2022. Shortly thereafter, the Italians voted overwhelmingly to keep their
country nonnuclear. Switzerland and Spain followed suit, banning the
construction of any new reactors. Then Japan's prime minister killed his
country's plans to expand its reactor fleet, pledging to reduce Japan's
reliance on nuclear power dramatically. Taiwan's president did the same. Now
Mexico is sidelining construction of 10 reactors in favor of developing
natural-gas-fired plants, and Belgium is toying with phasing its nuclear
plants out, perhaps as early as 2015. Even the most pro-nuclear of states
have experienced post-Fukushima reactions that have jilted their plans.

 <> More Radioactive Water Leaks From Japanese
Nuclear Plant - New York Times, Dec. 5 - The newspaper says the water may
have contained up to one million times as much radioactive strontium as the
maximum safe level set by the government, and about 300 times as much
radioactive cesium. Both are readily absorbed by living tissue and can
greatly increase the risk of developing cancer.

 <> Fukushima fallout: time to quit nuclear power
altogether - Experience in northern Japan illustrates that even incremental
investment in nuclear power threatens human civilization. The Fukushima
disaster should once and for all drive global society away from nuclear
power, and toward renewable energy. - by Lester Brown and Yul Choi

 <> Japan at less than 20% nuclear capacity - If all
local authorities refuse restarts, there will be no nuclear reactors
operating in Japan by April 2012. Only 10 of Japan's 58 reactors are
currently running.

 <> Nuclear Genocide in Canada - 2009 e-book, free - Few
Canadians know how many communities and environments have been contaminated
forever by the nuclear industry. Even fewer know the number of
radiation-induced illnesses and premature deaths the Canadian Government has
knowingly caused through its actions and inactions.
