Why is it that NRC on 12-22-11 granted a waiver of 30-day comment waiting period for it's approval of two new reactors each in GA & SC?
We should discuss an NRC 12-22-11 waiver of 30-day waiting period for it's approval of two new reactors each in GA & SC. Main stream media (MSM) is not helping us have these discussions.
MSM spins nuclear industrial stories because it's interlocked into the military-industrial complex of which we were warned by U.S. President Eisenhower (on Jan. 17, 1961) to beware. That "complex" has grown into a nuclear, military, economic and political global machine. It is so committed to making nuclear energy and its military applications a massive, undifferentiated whole that it now has overwhelming inertia.
Support of my opinion above and my comment Oct 3, 2011 (in Kevin Shepheard's TED CONVERSATION that's now closed http://www.ted.com/conversations/5712/why_are_the_governments_of_the.html ) is this new footnoted article: "Science with a Skew: The Nuclear Power Industry After Chernobyl and Fukushima" by Gayle Greene @ http://japanfocus.org/-Gayle-Greene/3672 that's based in part on the 2010-2011 World Nuclear Industry Status Report, Worldwatch Institute, http://www.worldwatch.org/system/files/WorldNuclearIndustryStatusReport2011_%20FINAL.pdf --see paragraph 2 on page 4.
Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission (ABCC) sanitized by name-changing into Radiation Effects Research Foundation (RERF) and Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) sanitized by name-changing into Department of Energy (DOE) are but two parts of the military/industrial/carceral/pharmaceutical/educational/agrigenomic complex answering to the financial complex (a.k.a banks-got-bailed-out-we-got-sold-out-complex) of which we are all victims. None of MSM-RERF-DOE is going to help us have “a dialog…free from pointless ignorance” that some members of TED community vigorously pursue.
"Debate: Does the world need nuclear energy?" is a resource from TED that impells us to discuss NRC's 30-day waiting period waiver for it's approval of 2 new reactors each in GA & SC which MSM refuses to promote & force politicians to address.
