“King Trump” Proclaims

“Total Authority”

 

“Everything I did was right.”

BERNIE SANDERS: We Must Come Together to Defeat the Most Dangerous President in Modern History.”

PROFESSOR NOAM CHOMSKY:  “If Trump is reelected, it’s an indescribable disaster. It means that the policies of the past four years, which have been extremely destructive to the American population, to the world, will be continued and probably accelerated. What this is going to mean for health is bad enough… It will get worse. What this means for the environment or the threat of nuclear war, which no one is talking about but is extremely serious, is indescribable.”

Trump – Ignorant, Lying, Extremely Dangerous!

Is Martial Law Coming to the USA?

1. Mourn all victims of violence. 2. Reject war as a solution. 3. Defend civil liberties.
4. Oppose all discrimination, anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, anti-Hawaiian, etc.
5. Seek peace through peaceful means and work for justice in Hawai`i and around the world.

Covid 19 and Nuclear Power plant safety

USA  Thanks to Bob Gregory for this alert.

10th April 2020 – Terrified Atomic Workers Warn That the COVID-19 Pandemic May Threaten Nuclear Reactor Disaster

Extracts:

Of critical importance: every 18-24 months each reactor must shut for refueling and repairs. Itinerant crews of 1000 to 1500 technicians travel to 58 sites in 29 states, usually staying 30-60 days. They often board with local families, or in RVs, hotels, or Air B&Bs.

Industry-wide the pandemic has brought working conditions to the brink of collapse.  At Pennsylvania’s Limerick Generating Station, workers say they are “terrified” that the plant has become a “breeding ground…a complete cesspool” for the coronavirus.  “I’m in a constant state of paranoia,” one technician told Carl Hessler, Jr., of MontcoCourtNews.

The industry is now using the coronavirus pandemic to rush through a wide range of deregulation demands. Among them is a move to allow radioactive waste to be dumped into municipal landfills.

Comment:

The Covid-19 pandemic is going to affect nuclear power plant safety worldwide. As nuclear workers become infected and taken out of the workforce all those countries with operating nuclear reactors will be facing the similar staffing and maintenance problems. Let’s pray and hope that governments around the world are capable of making very good decisions on how to deal with skilled nuclear worker shortages.
