Obama Sells Out Human Health and the Environment By Making Nuclear Energy a Centerpiece of Climate Policy

Obama has made nuclear energy a centerpiece of his climate push.

In reality, nuclear is .

Mark Jacobson – the head of Stanford University’s Atmosphere and Energy Program, who has written numerous books and hundreds of scientific papers on climate and energy, and testified before Congress numerous times on those issues – notes that nuclear puts out much more pollution (including much more CO2) than windpower, and 1.5% of all the nuclear plants built have melted down.

Fascistic belligerence is something the idiots on the street can agree on. The guy, Mark Dice, however seems to be trying to make a partisan political point about “Obama zombies” which doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. The random people on the street are not “Obama” partisans, but the prankster seems to clearly have a political agenda behind his mischaracterizations.

Obama and the military industrial complex are actively planning nuclear strikes against Russia.

US MIGHT DEPLOY MISSILES IN EUROPE TO COUNTER RUSSIA

The options go so far as one implied – but not stated explicitly – that would improve the ability of U.S. nuclear weapons to destroy military targets on Russian territory.

AP spins the Ukraine situation in typical propaganda fashion, ignoring the US and EU role in overthrowing the democratically elected government in February 2014 by hiring neo-nazi militants to execute the coup. Obama continues to escalate flashpoints toward world war.

New EIA analysis shows nukes don’t help reduce carbon emissions under EPA’s Clean Power Plan

In other words, increased investment in nuclear power means decreased investment in cleaner solar power. We can have a nuclear future or we can have a solar future: we can’t have both. And a solar future is cleaner, cheaper and safer.

And, as analyzed by Utility Dive, perhaps the most significant finding is that nuclear power does not help achieve greater carbon emission reductions.

Netanyahu Worked Inside Nuclear Smuggling Ring

On June 27, 2012, the FBI partially declassified and released seven additional pages[.pdf] from a 1985–2002 investigation into how a network of front companies connected to the Israeli Ministry of Defense illegally smuggled nuclear triggers out of the U.S.* The newly released FBI files detail how Richard Kelly Smyth — who was convicted of running a U.S. front company — met with Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel during the smuggling operation.

“[T]the U.S., and to a lesser degree Russia, object to costly safety upgrades. The U.S. claims its nuclear safety controls are adequate despite the continued operation here of 22 identical Fukushima-design reactors.”
