    Oh yeah, and that's just one of many. Then there are the mystery chems that the fluid users won't reveal (different fracking fluids are trade secrets).

    The French also conducted similar studies and found the same effects

    In Fukushima post meltdown about 57,000 children were tested and about 42% had abnormal Thyroid glands (the normal Thyroid abnormality rate in children is less than 1%(

    Fukushima still melting down and releasing radionuclide

    Nuclear power and its waste is the most insane human activity in history

    And lets not mention nuclear weapons which is the main reason nuclear power plants are built (ie to get Plutonium which is a by product of nuclear fissioning of Uranium)
    long time ago I took a college class that discussed all sources of electricity for the USA, and compared them.
    first, commercial nuclear power has NOTHING to do with plutonium production...
    second, some dipstick professor in the Chicago did a study that says the same thing you do about cancers downwind, but he thought westerly winds means winds that go west.....instead of out of the west....so he proved that living downwind of a nuke plant is safer.
    Nuclear is not insane, war for oil is insane...
    greenies are finally getting smart and supporting nuclear, as the ONLY alternative to nuclear is coal which is very dirty....we all breathe a little pollution every day from coal, and radioactive contamination when the radioisotopes in coal get burned, and mercury, and, and, and.....

    The "green" oppisition to nuclear power illustrates that what they REALLY seek is the wide-spread implementation of inefficient generation systems that will raise energy costs, all as a means to force people to consume less energy, and therefore produce less wealth.

    Environmentalists are like watermellons - green on the outside, red in the middle.

    that reminds me, I need a new tinfoil hat, got any leads on good deals? I will buy a large quantity if it gets me a good discount...

    I'm hardly a "greenie", but I am a conservationist. I know there are costs and risks associated with every form of energy generation. Some risks I'm willing to take, others, not so much. It's a balancing act.

    Exactly. The issue also comes with storing the waste, which is why I'm starkly against nuclear power.

    we store coal wastes out in the open, the rains come, the crap leaches into the soil, runoff puts it in our rivers, during dry seasons the wind blows it into the air...
    Nuclear wastes don't hurt anybody, they are contained...and we could always go back to burial at sea....in subduction zones....

    I know. We also release it as fly ash.

    Nuclear wastes don't hurt anybody, they are contained...
    They're contained on site at nuclear power plants, which makes them ideal targets for terrorists. See, if these things get out in the open...

    Further, these wastes can be used weaponry.

    and we could always go back to burial at sea....in subduction zones....

    And that's why I would like to see Thorium nuclear plants (one of many reasons). It's not easy to misuse for weapons.
