Why should I care about Nuclear Reactors?
“Electricity is but the fleeting byproduct from nuclear reactors. The actual product is forever deadly radioactive waste.” 
Officials in Japan have now admitted that the Fukushima-Daiichi radiation release was much higher than initially reported, and now we are hearing that the amount of oceanic pollution is also in dispute.  This means that every computer model based on the bogus claims of TEPCO and the Japanese government are inaccurate and misleading.  A very desperate TEPCO is now attempting to build an underground ice wall to contain leaks. With over 400 nuclear power plants worldwide, which will be next to blow? When it does, how would you feel if you were evicted from your home and left in the dark as to how poisoned you are?  More Information: [21-30]
Fukushima media coverage “may be harmful”One report, in UK newspaper The Independent, quoted a scientist who predicted more than a million would die, and that the prolonged release of radioactivity from Fukushima would make health effects worse than those from the sudden release experienced at the Chernobyl nuclear reactor in Ukraine.  “We’ve got to stop these sorts of reports coming out, because they are really upsetting the Japanese population,” says Gerry Thomas at Imperial College London, who is attending the meeting. “The media has a hell of a lot of responsibility here, because the worst post-Chernobyl effects were the psychological consequences and this shouldn’t happen again.” 
“The nuclear arms race is like two sworn enemies standing waist deep in gasoline, one with three matches, the other with five.” – Carl SaganMutual assured destruction, or mutually assured destruction (MAD), is a doctrine of military strategy and national security policy in which a full-scale use of high-yield weapons of mass destruction by two opposing sides would effectively result in the complete, utter and irrevocable annihilation of both the attacker and the defender, becoming thus a war that has no victory nor any armistice but only effective reciprocal destruction. It is based on the theory of deterrence according to which the deployment, and implicit menace of use, of strong weapons is essential to threaten the enemy in order to prevent the use of the same weapons by the enemy against oneself. The strategy is effectively a form of Nash equilibrium in which neither side, once armed, has any rational incentive either to initiate a conflict or to disarm (presuming neither side considers self-destruction an acceptable outcome). 
On September 1–2, 1859, the largest recorded geomagnetic storm occurred. Aurorae were seen around the world, most notably over the Caribbean; also noteworthy were those over the Rocky Mountains that were so bright that their glow awoke gold miners, who began preparing breakfast because they thought it was morning. People who happened to be awake in the northeastern US could read a newspaper by the aurora’s light.Telegraph systems all over Europe and North America failed, in some cases even shocking telegraph operators. Telegraph pylons threw sparks and telegraph paper spontaneously caught fire. Some telegraph systems appeared to continue to send and receive messages despite having been disconnected from their power supplies.  Scientists say it is not a matter of “if” but a matter of “when” the next Carrington Event will occur. What effect will this solar kill-shot have on our nuclear stations worldwide? That remains to be seen. Trillions of dollars have been spent on space fences and other sci-fi gadgets to detect, track, and hopefully destroy inter-continental ballistic missiles carrying nuclear/EMP warheads, that does not guarantee they will work when they time comes.  As evidenced by 9/11, the Boston bombing, and numerous other events, when we really need these gadgets to work, the people using them fail. Whether man-made or solar calamity, Electromagnetic Pulse is the greatest threat to modern society. The Heritage Foundation warn that 2/3 of Americans would die within a year of an EMP attack due to starvation and domestic violence.  This estimate does not include deaths due to a Level 8 mutli-reactor meltdown as a result of electromagnetic pulse, nor do they even recognize the possibility.  Tell your representatives protect the grid and shield our nukes, your life depends on it! More Information: [44-54]
