- How Germany became Europe’s green leader: A look at four decades of sustainable policymaking
Over the last 40 years, all levels of government in Germany have retooled policies to promote growth that is more environmentally sustainable. Germany’s experiences can provide useful lessons for the United States (and other nations) as policymakers consider options for “green” economic transformation. Our analysis focuses on four case studies from Germany in the areas of energy, urban infrastructure, and transportation. We show how political challenges to the implementation of green policies were overcome and how sustainability programs were made politically acceptable at the local, state, and federal levels of government. Within the three highlighted sectors, we identify potential opportunities and barriers to policy transfer from Germany to the United States, concluding with specific lessons for policy development and implementation.
- Waldner: “New momentum for the relations between Austria and Slovenia”
In his meetings, the State Secretary once again emphasised Austria’s concern about the plans to extend the operation of the Krško nuclear power plant and to even expand the plant. Waldner: “The strict criteria of the stress tests agreed at EU level apply to all currently existing nuclear power plants in Europe and to the ones planned to be constructed in future. We are also expecting clear consequences from the investigations carried out by independent experts.”
Various new and highly promising initiatives for more in-depth cooperation have recently developed, especially with Slovenia. One example is the quadrilateral dialogue (with Switzerland and Liechtenstein) on consular and visa issues and human rights.
The State Secretary is reaching out to Slovenia. Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Austria are all either non nuclear or phasing out. The call will be overheard in Slovenia, where corrupt political environment and officials are trying to suck the last cent out of anything still running. Our nuclear power plant is no exception.
- BBC: Former top WHO official says there’s evidence that a kind of genetic mutation is being passed on after Chernobyl meltdown (VIDEO)
[...] A documentary to be broadcast by BBC Scotland tells how the collapse of the Soviet Union meant no definitive research was ever carried out into the impact of the Chernobyl disaster on human health. [...]
Professor Keith Baverstock, who led the World Health Organisation’s radiation protection programme for more than 10 years, believes new research is vital.
- Belarus agrees to Russian building of nuclear station
Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko agreed on Tuesday that Russia should build the country's first, $9 billion nuclear power station.
"It is only today that I've signed the resolution and agreed to sign a contract with the Russian Federation to build our first nuclear power station," he told a meeting with a Russian governor.
- Independent Nuclear Experts to Speak at Fukushima Forum Tuesday
Presenters include Daniel Hirsch, lecturer in nuclear policy at UC Santa Cruz and former director of the Stevenson Program on Nuclear Policy at the university. Hirsch is also president of the Committee to Bridge the Gap, a 40-year-old nonprofit organization working to reduce risks of nuclear accident and problems of radioactive waste disposal. He recently testified before the Select Committee of the California Senate on earthquake and disaster preparedness, response and recovery on implications of the Fukushima disaster for California’s San Onofre and Diablo Canyon nuclear reactors. A question and answer session will follow Hirsch’s presentation.
In addition, the program will include a live video presentation and teleconference for public interaction with Arnold Gundersen, a former nuclear industry senior vice president and energy advisor with nearly 40 years of nuclear power engineering experience. He has managed and coordinated projects at 70 nuclear power plants around the country. An independent nuclear engineering and safety expert, Gundersen provides testimony on nuclear operations, reliability, safety and radiation issues to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, congressional and state legislatures and government agencies throughout the world.
- How to Enjoy Radioactive Autumn in Japan in Kindergartens and Elementary Schools
In Tokyo, Chiba, Kanagawa, they all do these fun-filled activities to enjoy and celebrate autumn, just like they did last year and year before, radioactive fallout or not. A minor nuclear accident must not disturb the preset schedule, ever.
At this point, though an increasing number of parents are simply horrified, the majority are quite happily following whatever the school teachers say and accuse the concerned parents as "monster parent" (a Japlish word that they use in katakana) - a troublemaker. The majority are more worried about their children's prospect of getting into prestigious schools.
- UPDATE: Strontium-90 at 195 Bq/kg found 30 km south of Tokyo
[...] The number is 195 becquerels/kg, more than 150 times more than the background (1.2 becquerels/kg).
This is probably the lower of the two samples; the other sample is currently being analyzed.
As far as the Ministry of Education is concerned, the southern most detection of strontium-90 was in Shirakawa City, 79 kilometers from the plant. [...]
- Breaking News: Tokyo on the edge
In the simplest put, it’s over.
The amount was 195 Bq/kg.
Detected by a university staff teaching engineering, so the measurement is trustworthy.
It has nothing to do with the historical world-wide nuclear test, because it was measured on the roof of and apartment, which was built only 5 years ago.

Kesennuma, Miyagi Pref., Oct. 11 (Jiji Press)--The northeastern Japan prefecture of Miyagi is facing a fishery industry crisis because many seafood processing plants have been unable to resume operations even seven months after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
- Post-Fukushima, France breaks silence on nuclear safety
For a country as given to debate and argument as France, there has been a deafening silence surrounding the choice of nuclear as the prime source of energy. With a population of 62 million, France boasts 59 nuclear reactors — the highest per capita in the world, with over 75 per cent of its electricity coming from the power of the atom.
according to poll by PressTv over 70% of the french population supports gradual shutdown by 2030.
- Algeria to invest 15 bn euros into alternative energy
ALGIERS - Algeria will invest nearly 15 billion euros ($20.5 billion) over the next 20 years to boost electricity production from renewable energy sources, the public Sonelgaz group said on Monday.
"The total sum of electricity production development between 2011 and 2021 is nearly 2,600 billion dinars (25.9 billion euros, $35.4 billion), 1,500 billion of which (15 billion euros) will be dedicated to renewable energy," Nordine Bouterfa, the head of Sonelgaz, told a press conference.
"By 2030 some 40 percent of electricity production for national consumption will come from renewable" energy, he said.
- 90 MW Addition to Iceland's Hellisheidi Geothermal Power Plant
On October 1st 2011, Reykjavik's utility company, Orkuveita Reykjavikur, celebrated the start-up of the 5th phase of the Hellisheidi geothermal combined heat and power plant (CHP), located just outside Reykjavik, Iceland. This fifth phase added an additional 90 MW of power. The plant, which was designed by a group of consulting firms led by Mannvit, is now one of the world's largest geothermal energy plants, producing 303 MW of power and 133 MW of thermal energy for space heating and hot water.
- Revenues from Offshore Wind Power Production to Reach $104 Billion by 2017, According to Pike Research
The largest markets for offshore wind through the remainder of this decade, though, will be in Western Europe, which as a region will account for fully 75% of global installed capacity in 2017.
- Students return to Fukushima schools for first time since start of nuclear crisis
IWAKI, Fukushima -- On Oct. 11, seven months after the earthquake and the beginning of the Fukushima nuclear crisis, students of three schools here returned to their classrooms for the first time since the disasters.
The schools, south of the stricken Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, had been part of the government-designated indoor advisory zone, and their reopening is the first for any schools within the indoor standby and evacuation zones.
- Fukushima Japan still spewing radiation worldwide update 10/9/11
- Residents near Fukushima mountains face nuclear recontamination every rainfall
...The unease is especially strong in areas in and around mountains that must be repeatedly decontaminated, as every rainfall brings a new batch of radioactive substance-contaminated leaves and soil washing down from the hills. Since some 70 percent of Fukushima Prefecture is mountainous, such instances of regular recontamination could occur over a broad area, while the same effect has also been observed in some undeveloped areas of cities.
- Beyond its battered shores, Japan still pushing for nuclear power
It may seem a stretch for Japan to acclaim its nuclear technology overseas while struggling at home to contain the nuclear meltdowns that displaced more than 100,000 people. But Japan argues that its latest technology includes safeguards not present at the decades-old reactors at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi plant, which continues to leak radiation.
Preaching latest technology and safeguards, exporting nuclear technology etc only means that gov. of japan intends to continue its nuclear program despite the majority of the population against it.
It would look strange selling "high tech" nuclear power plants, while not building any at home...
- Fukushima Nuclear Crisis Update for October 7th - 10th, 2011
Blogpost by Justin McKeating - October 11, 2011
(This post is by Christine McCann)
Today marks seven months since the nuclear disaster occurred at the Fukushima Daiichi plant. Here’s the latest of our news bulletins from the ongoing crisis.
- Activist Sues Belarusian President Over Nuclear Power Plant
ASTRAVETS, Belarus -- An antinuclear activist in western Belarus is suing President Alyaksandr Lukashenka over plans to build a contentious nuclear power station there, RFE/RL's Belarus Service reports.
Mikalay Ulasevich, who helps coordinate the "A Nuclear Power Station in Astravets Is A Crime" campaign, told journalists on October 7 that he has submitted his lawsuit to the Supreme Court.
He said Presidential Decree No. 418 "On the location of a nuclear power station in Belarus" contradicts Article 18 of the country's constitution, which proclaims Belarus "a neutral country with a nuclear-free territory."
- Switch to sun, live with comfort
Odessa, Ukraine - Three rural districts in Ukraine were chosen to receive training on self-constructing solar collectors for warm water and heating.
- Thorium reactors for the future
The old technology represented at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant is the product of the Cold War. It was chosen because of, not in spite of, its ability to create plutonium. In the 1950s, when the nuclear power was developed, manufacture of "a bomb a day kept the other side away." This was true for the Soviets and for the United States. It has cursed Japan with 60 to 70 tons of plutonium stored at various waste locations.
- News: Actual fallout was 10 times more than reported
Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology admitted that they have made a “mistake” on the report about fall out in Fukushima.
The data is about the amount of fallout and the rain, from 6/6/2011 ~ 8/4/2011.
Having said that it was a simple error, it turned out that it was 10 times more than originally reported.
- Report: More plant mutations observed — Cases on the rise (PHOTOS & VIDEO)
Plants’ mutation are observed everywhere, and the cases are increasing.
wow, great video. You can observe the destructive force of radiation, tearing apart the most intangible fabrics of life.
Radiation is like shooting bullets into DNA several thousand times per second, splitting and ripping apart the normal DNA sequence of each living creature.
Nature, even universe as a whole functions in such a synchronous way beacuse of its common underlying principle, described in so called Fibonacci numbers. (please ignore the religious tone of the video posting beacuse it contains lots of examples)
This of course is not the sole example. Many are not aware that the underlying sequence of todays information technology follows the same pattern. The binary system, attributed to philosopher and mathematician Liebnitz was derived from chineese I Ching, describing the world as we see it as an interaction of ying and yang, of ZERO and ONE. And the virtual world is no exception.

The Japan Tourism Agency under the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism is competing with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in giving away free trips to Japan to foreigners in the hope of "favorable" coverage on the Internet social media.
Here's an idea. Use that money to help 10.000 children out of contaminated areas. That might ring a favourable buzz across the social media. Anything else is a FAIL.
- Largest Private Solar Array Unveiled in Northern Arizona
U.S. Representative Paul Gosar, a native of Flagstaff, led a dedication ceremony at the plant, where nearly 1,900 glistening solar panels span over 70,000 square feet on the rooftop. The solar array will take advantage of Arizona's average of 300 days of sunshine annually to produce emission-free solar electricity.
Each private company that decides to ditch the grid, cut costs, go green and profit at same time from lower electricity costs that can become a profit center by itself, is a nail in the coffin of nuclear power industry.
- Japan Times: Cesium levels spiking with unusually high amount of fallout in Okutama, Tokyo up to 300,000 Bq/m² — Home to World’s largest drinking water reservoir of its kind, built to supply Tokyo
Okutama cesium level seen spiking, Japan Times by Mizuho Aoki, Oct. 8, 2011:
An aerial radiation survey of the capital and Kanagawa Prefecture has revealed the northwest tip of Tokyo was tainted by an unusually high amount of fallout [... in] the mountainous Okutama region on Tokyo’s western fringe. Radiation readings in the area were the highest of the two prefectures at 100,000 to 300,000 becquerels of radioactive cesium per square meter.
Nice pic posted on enenews to easily suck-in the extent of the disaster.
- TEPCO starts to eject dense hydrogen from Fukushima reactor pipe
TOKYO (Kyodo) -- Tokyo Electric Power Co., the operator of the crisis-hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, said Saturday it has started to discharge hydrogen with high concentration levels from a pipe connected to a reactor containment vessel at the plant, as a measure to prevent an explosion.
Ejecting dense hydrogen is similar to "sprinkling"... Nothing else than venting and discharing of highly radioactive concetrations.
- Huhne will use Fukushima report to revive nuclear programme
Greenpeace is already pursuing a judicial review for alleged insufficient lack of consultation on nuclear power, and has been further antagonised by a perceived lack of transparency over submissions made to Weightman.
Anti-nuclear protesters are infuriated that EDF, the French state-owned energy company at the heart of the UK's new nuclear plans, has started preparatory work on a facility at Hinkley Point in Kent ahead of the report's publication.
- Tokyo under illusion that things are normal while Fukushima remains a war zone
We are well into autumn. And despite the growing sense in the Tokyo metropolitan area that things are now all right -- with train services back to pre-disaster schedules and the regret we once felt over our wasteful consumption of electricity dissipating -- Fukushima remains a war zone.
Tokyo got shelled too, some people just can't see it.
- Farmers frustrated on removing tainted straw
More than 600 bales of straw sat in one greenhouse at a cattle farm in southern Iwate Prefecture. Their combined weight was more than 60 tons, the farmer said.
Radioactive cesium of more than 8,000 becquerels per kilogram was detected in the straw, more than the limit allowed for incinerating the straw or taking it to a landfill.
Government of Japan crooks par excellence. It's ok for 8.000 bcq/kg x 60.000kg = 480.000.000 bcq = 480.000 Kbcq to be stored at some farmers home, while nothing can be done to help him remove the nuclear waste from his backyard. And it keeps comming.
- Strontium-90 Discovered in Yokohama City, 245 km from Fukushima I Nuke Plant

Sellafield unions and politicians in Cumbria have lobbied for a second Mox plant to save the 1,000 jobs that could be lost with the closure of the existing £1.3bn Sellafield Mox Plant. However, the possibility of keeping the plant open in order to make low-grade "disposable" Mox has been ruled out.
- France 24 Program on Fukushima Workers
It's a program from July 10, 2011 on France 24 International News in English. Unlike NHK documentaries or Germany's ZDF programs, France 24 managed to get the workers talk in front of the camera without hiding their faces and having their voices changed to avoid identification.
It is a well-made program.

Why would people wear contamination suits while spraying water on some bushes?
You certainly wouldn't do this in the back yard. But you might if the water included radioactive, cancer-causing agents like plutonium and strontium.

- Bringing the Plight of Fukushima Children to the UN, Washington and the World
Arriving in Washington on the six month anniversary of the March 11 Fukushima Daiichi meltdown, they have addressed the National Press Club, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and the United Nations Human Rights Commission, as well as participating in an action at the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant just 38 miles north of New York City. Their central messages to the American and to the Japanese people:
• Save the children of Fukushima and Northeast Japan
• End nuclear power everywhere drawing on the lessons of Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima
• Asylum for Fukushima refugees: help both in Japan and abroad.
• UN stop promoting nuclear power.

- Agency asks prefectures to specify where fish are caught
Under the current system, fishermen can simply write down the ports where they have taken their fish and other marine products as the locations for their catches. For example, if fish caught off Hokkaido end up at Kesennuma Port in Miyagi Prefecture, the fishermen can say the fish were caught off Miyagi Prefecture.
make no mistake about it... your favourite sushi is radioactive.
EU only checks for radiation in food comming from 3 designated prefectures.
- Rush' for new nuclear power plants condemned
Environmental campaigners today accused the Government of pushing forward with new nuclear power plants before lessons could be learned from the Fukushima disaster, ahead of the publication of a report on the crisis.
This week the Department of Energy and Climate Change is expected to publish the final report into the implications for the UK nuclear industry of the disaster at the tsunami-hit Fukushima reactor in Japan.

He also serves as the Surgeon for the U.S. Army Special Forces Command, U.S. Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command, and the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare
This paper is a history of the Israeli nuclear weapons program drawn from a review of unclassified sources. Israel began its search for nuclear weapons at the inception of the state in 1948. As payment for Israeli participation in the Suez Crisis of 1956, France provided nuclear expertise and constructed a reactor complex for Israel at Dimona capable of large- scale plutonium production and reprocessing. The United States discovered the facility by 1958 and it was a subject of continual discussions between American presidents and Israeli prime ministers. Israel used delay and deception to at first keep the United States at bay, and later used the nuclear option as a bargaining chip for a consistent American conventional arms supply. After French disengagement in the early 1960s, Israel progressed on its own, including through several covert operations, to project completion. Before the 1967 Six-Day War, they felt their nuclear facility threatened and reportedly assembled several nuclear devices. By the 1973 Yom Kippur War Israel had a number of sophisticated nuclear bombs, deployed them, and considered using them. The Arabs may have limited their war aims because of their knowledge of the Israeli nuclear weapons. Israel has most probably conducted several nuclear bomb tests. They have continued to modernize and vertically proliferate and are now one of the world's larger nuclear powers. Using “bomb in the basement” nuclear opacity, Israel has been able to use its arsenal as a deterrent to the Arab world while not technically violating American nonproliferation requirements.

- British nuclear forces, 2011
The United Kingdom has been the most successful of all the nuclear weapon states in terms of creating a minimum nuclear deterrent; in fact, there is reason to believe that the country is considering whether to move toward denuclearization. The authors assess the country’s nuclear forces, providing clear analysis on the British nuclear stockpile and its reductions, the modernization of its nuclear deterrent force, the British– French collaboration on defense and security matters, the country’s nuclear policy, and the country’s nuclear accidents.
Two months after the collision, the Ministry of Defence disclosed that there have been 14 collisions (mostly groundings) involving British SSBNs since 1988, as well as 236 fires. Of the fires on Royal Navy nuclear submarines, 213 were classified as small-scale, while 20 were more serious (the size of three of the fires was not characterized).7 Two of the collision incidents involved the grounding of nuclear-armed SSBNs: the Repulse in the North Channel off Northern Ireland in July 1996 (the sub was decommissioned the same year) and Victorious on Skelmorlie Bank on the Irish Sea in November 2000 (Ainsworth, 2009; BBC, 2009b). The February 2009 collision of the Vanguard was not on the list.
