The drinking water supply in TOKYO, hundreds of kilometers from the Fukushima nuclear disaster, has now been found to be contaminated with radioactive iodine. Food and milk produced in the disaster area is also contaminated. Shipments of all vegetables and farm produce from the agricultural area have been halted. The reactors are still spewing radioactive materials.
In spite of the blatant, horrific evidence facing the rich "nuclear industry" in Japan, the North American industry continues to insist upon building more nuclear reactors as if nothing has happened.
We believe that any further development of nuclear generating stations is not only morally reprehensible but may well be a crime against humanity. Clean, safe alternatives and technology ARE available. If the same billions of dollars were directed at alternative energy sources, much cleaner energy would be harvested without danger or economic loss.Must we contaminate the whole world with radiation ? The "industry representatives" so innocently holding the current "hearings" to build yet more nuclear reactors at Darlington, Ontario seem to think so. Trouble is, they apparently have not been paying attention to the growing disaster in Japan.
Greenpeace protesters holding a demonstration at the pseudo "hearings" were arrested and will be charged.
Is Ontario a police state? What is wrong with protesting against proliferation of technology that has the potential to destroy humanity?
Think about it!
There are 11,000,000 human beings in southern Ontario within range of the Bruce/Darlington and Pickering reactors and their potential leaks, failures and inevitably, their catastrophes. What will the "owners and operators " do when that happens? "Apologize profusely?" NOT good enough !
At Incoming Bytes we object strenuously to any expansion or building of new nuclear reactors. The current hearings, apparently sanctioned by our "leaders" will clearly be continued with deaf ears, so let the pointed questions BE:" Why are hearings for expansion plans in Darlington being held NOW, at this period of utmost distraction globally, with major disasters world-wide?" --So nobody NOTICES them?
" Who has GENUINE moral authority to even CONSIDER building nuclear reactors? "
" Given the recent accidents, why would ANYONE be foolish enough to build more nuclear reactors?"
" Which authority has authorized GREEDY CORPORATE INTERESTS to threaten the lives of every human being alive?"
I really like this question the best : " Is willful nuclear expansion a sign of collective human insanity, insatiable corporate greed, total lunacy, irresponsible governance, -or proof positive of all of the above ?"
" WHICH REFERENDUM has EVER been held to allow such a foolish energy policy to be followed --and proceed nonchalantly with it, as if "nothing will happen" ?
Murphy's law says otherwise. If it CAN happen, it will.
Clearly "something" can happen; let us now ask the people of Tokyo, a " highly responsible, highly technologically-advanced society that has "SAFE" nuclear reactors, --and who can NOW, today, no longer allow their infants to drink the water in TOKYO, hundreds of kilometers from the Fukushima nuclear disaster, because it has been found to be contaminated with radioactive iodine. It is unfit for infants. In fact, it is more likely unfit for human consumption. Food and milk produced in the disaster area is contaminated with radiation and shipments from the area have been halted. To make matters worse, the damaged reactors CONTINUE TO LEAK MORE RADIATION.
Shall greedy corporate interests and individuals be allowed destroy our civilization? MUST we contaminate the world with radiation? Where ARE our political "leaders" today? Are they leading us, or are they sitting smugly in the pockets of the nuclear industry?
At Incoming Bytes we shall continue to express our opinion and protest blatant foolishness where discovered at every possible opportunity.
Given that the recent nuclear disasters in Japan have proven that nuclear reactors cannot be made fail safe, we hereby politely and insistently request that:
*NO MORE NUCLEAR REACTORS be built IN DARLINGTON.
*NO MORE NUCLEAR REACTORS be built IN ONTARIO.
*NO MORE NUCLEAR REACTORS be built IN NORTH AMERICA.
The reader is encouraged to post this and similar protests to the nuclear industry's persistent and reckless assault on civilization in every forum possible.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
