Virginia Uranium Mining Pits Economic Gains Against Environmental Risks
One of the largest uranium-ore deposits in the world, valued at about $7 billion, is located in an economically depressed, rural area of the southern U.S. state of Virginia. Regional activists have so far been able to block the company's efforts, though, to lift a ban on uranium mining in Virginia. VOA's Brian Padden has more.

"A Slow Genocide of the People": Uranium Mining Leaves Toxic Nuclear Legacy on Indigenous Land
http://www.democracynow.org - The iconic Grand Canyon is the site of a battle over toxic uranium mining. Last year, a company called Energy Fuels Resources was given federal approval to reopen a mine six miles from the Grand Canyon's popular South Rim entrance. A coalition of Native and environmental groups have protested the decision, saying uranium mining could strain scarce water sources and pose serious health effects. Diné (Navajo) tribal lands are littered with abandoned uranium mines. From 1944 to 1986, 3.9 million tons of uranium ore were chiseled and blasted from the mountains and plains of the region. More than 1,000 mines have closed, but the mining companies never properly disposed of their radioactive waste piles, leading to a spike in cancer rates and other health ailments. Broadcasting from Flagstaff, Arizona, we speak with Taylor McKinnon, director of energy with Grand Canyon Trust, and Klee Benally, a Diné (Navajo) activist and musician. "It's really a slow genocide of the people, not just indigenous people of this region, but it's estimated that there are over 10 million people who are residing within 50 miles of abandoned uranium mines," Benally says. Benally also describes the struggle to preserve the San Francisco Peaks, an area considered sacred by 13 Native tribes, where the Snowbowl ski resort is using treated sewage water to make snow.

Greenland's green light for uranium extraction sparks environmental concerns
Greenland's parliament has voted to end a decades-long ban on mining for radioactive materials such... euronews, the most watched news channel in Europe Subscribe for your daily dose of international news, curated and explained:http://eurone.ws/10ZCK4a Euronews is available in 13 other languages: http://eurone.ws/17moBCU http://www.euronews.com/2013/10/25/greenland-s-green-light-for-uranium-extraction-sparks-environmental-concerns Greenland's parliament has voted to end a decades-long ban on mining for radioactive materials such as uranium. Greenland, an autonomous Danish territory, is looking to boost its economy, which is currently dependent on fishing and Danish subsidies. The Danish Minister for Industry and Minerals Jens-Erik Kirkegaard explains:"It is very important. The company expects a turnover of nine billion krone. Greenland's GDP is 12 billion. It will be close to doubling the GDP it will have a huge impact on Greenlandic society." The project has been criticised by environmental groups with NGO's warning the mining will threaten the Arctic's eco-system.

Mining & the Environment: Sustainable or Responsible? by Dr. Gavin Mudd
You can access Dr. Mudd's Power Point presentation here--http://ace.aua.am/files/2016/08/AUA-Mining-v-Environment-v-Susty-or-Resp.pdf About the Talk: Modern mining is a truly global industry, supplying ever more minerals and metals to meet growing global demand - but at what environmental and social costs? This presentation will cover the main issues facing modern mining - declining ore grades, bigger mines, giant open cut and underground mines, more tailings and waste rock, more energy-water-pollution issues, greater regulatory, corporate and financial scrutiny, and all the same time as communities are more aware of mining issues. Showing unique data sets and case studies, this talk will demonstrate that modern mining is far from running out of mineral resources but is clearly facing greater environmental risks. Solutions include better regulation, corporate reporting and accountability, as well as informed communities - thereby ensuring a responsible mining sector is contributing to sustainable development. About the Speaker: Dr. Gavin Mudd is a renowned global expert on the environmental sustainability of modern mining, and brings together a unique set of multi-disciplinary skills and knowledge to explore the challenges that the modern mining industry, governments and communities are collectively facing. His 20 years of research work have examined the environmental impacts to surface water and groundwater, waste rock and tailings management, acid mine drainage, rehabilitation, mineral resources, and the sustainability metrics of mining - and this has included detailed studies of almost all sectors of the global mining industry, such as gold, uranium, coal, gas, copper, nickel, platinum group elements, rare earths, mineral sands. To date he has presented or published more than 200 journal, conference and technical papers or reports (nearly two thirds of which are peer-reviewed) - with his research differentiated by the integration of rich data sets, leading the way in quantifying the environmental and sustainability issues affecting modern mining. Dr. Mudd is recognised worldwide for his unique and independent expertise on mining, and is currently Head of Environmental Engineering at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, where he has collaborated closely with Dr. Simon Jowitt in recent years on the geological side underpinning the environmental issues facing modern mining.

Dangers of Nuclear Power: Short Documentary: Fukushima Exposed
Nuclear power is the use of sustained nuclear fission to generate heat and electricity. Nuclear power plants provide about 6% of the world's energy and 13--14% of the world's electricity, with the U.S., France, and Japan together accounting for about 50% of nuclear generated electricity. In 2007, the IAEA reported there were 439 nuclear power reactors in operation in the world, operating in 31 countries. Also, more than 150 naval vessels using nuclear propulsion have been built. There is an ongoing debate about the use of nuclear energy. Proponents, such as the World Nuclear Association and IAEA, contend that nuclear power is a sustainable energy source that reduces carbon emissions. Opponents, such as Greenpeace International and NIRS, believe that nuclear power poses many threats to people and the environment. Nuclear power plant accidents include the Chernobyl disaster (1986), Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster (2011), and the Three Mile Island accident (1979). There have also been some nuclear-powered submarine mishaps. However, the safety record of nuclear power is good when compared with many other energy technologies. Research into safety improvements is continuing and nuclear fusion may be used in the future. China has 25 nuclear power reactors under construction, with plans to build many more, while in the US the licenses of almost half its reactors have been extended to 60 years, and plans to build another dozen are under serious consideration. However, Japan's 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster prompted a rethink of nuclear energy policy in many countries. Germany decided to close all its reactors by 2022, and Italy has banned nuclear power. Following Fukushima, the International Energy Agency halved its estimate of additional nuclear generating capacity to be built by 2035. The nuclear power debate is about the controversy which has surrounded the deployment and use of nuclear fission reactors to generate electricity from nuclear fuel for civilian purposes. The debate about nuclear power peaked during the 1970s and 1980s, when it "reached an intensity unprecedented in the history of technology controversies", in some countries. Proponents of nuclear energy contend that nuclear power is a sustainable energy source that reduces carbon emissions and increases energy security by decreasing dependence on imported energy sources. Proponents claim that nuclear power produces virtually no conventional air pollution, such as greenhouse gases and smog, in contrast to the chief viable alternative of fossil fuel. Nuclear power can produce base-load power unlike many renewables which are intermittent energy sources lacking large-scale and cheap ways of storing energy. M. King Hubbert saw oil as a resource that would run out, and believed uranium had much more promise as an energy source. Proponents claim that the risks of storing waste are small and can be further reduced by using the latest technology in newer reactors, and the operational safety record in the Western world is excellent when compared to the other major kinds of power plants. Opponents believe that nuclear power poses many threats to people and the environment. These threats include the problems of processing, transport and storage of radioactive nuclear waste, the risk of nuclear weapons proliferation and terrorism, as well as health risks and environmental damage from uranium mining. They also contend that reactors themselves are enormously complex machines where many things can and do go wrong; and there have been serious nuclear accidents. Critics do not believe that the risks of using nuclear fission as a power source can be fully offset through the development of new technology. They also argue that when all the energy-intensive stages of the nuclear fuel chain are considered, from uranium mining to nuclear decommissioning, nuclear power is neither a low-carbon nor an economical electricity source. Arguments of economics and safety are used by both sides of the debate. .

Global Climate Change Policy - Extractive Industry Impacts and Response
Jeff Hopkins, Principal Adviser for International Energy and Climate Policy at Rio Tinto, presented on October 29, 2013 as part of the AEDE Applied Economics Seminar Series. His presentation focused on climate change policy as experienced by an international mining company. This seminar was sponsored by Ohio State's Environmental Policy Initiative. Dr. Hopkins leads policy engagement in the U.S. and Canada for Rio Tinto and works with a globally-distributed corporate team as well as external affairs and environmental specialists who work on-site at Rio Tinto mines and businesses. Rio Tinto is the largest diversified mining company in the U.S. and the second-largest mining company in the world, with major operations producing iron ore, copper, aluminum, uranium, thermal and metallurgical coal, gold, and industrial minerals. As part of their mining, refining, and smelting of these metals and minerals, Rio Tinto emits 41 million tons of GHG emissions per year. Over 70 percent of these GHG emissions occur in places where carbon is regulated through a price-based scheme such as cap and trade or a carbon tax. Dr. Hopkins' policy education and advocacy work on behalf of Rio Tinto at the national and regional levels, often in collaboration with the larger business community and environmental NGOs, is based on extensive experience in scheme development and implementation. Prior to working for Rio Tinto, Dr. Hopkins was a policy analyst and chief economist for the United States House of Representatives Committee on the Budget, and before that for USDA's Economic Research Service. Dr. Hopkins received a PhD from AEDE in 1998, and was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guatemala from 1987-1989.

George Glasier: Uranium Legend Talks Upcoming Uranium Boom and Best Way to Play
As president and CEO of Energy Fuels from 2006 to 2010, George Glasier put together a world-class management team, acquired several uranium projects and permitted the Piñon Ridge uranium mill in Colorado. In 2006, Energy Fuels appreciated 4500% in the market, making it the best performing stock in Canada that year! Will the good years repeat? Increasing worldwide demand for uranium cannot be met by existing supply. Taking a new project into production is a tedious process meaning supply crunches are inevitable. The current price is so low that mines have been shutting down. This comes at a time when nuclear power plants are being built at incredible speed. Modern, cheaper and safer, carbon neutral nuclear energy is replacing fossil fuels all over the world. George Glasier's new company, Western Uranium, (OTCQX:WSTRF, CSE:WUC), was launched just 18 months ago. Already, George has assembled a suite of 7 past producing mines, all located in the United States, boasting uranium resources exceeding 100 Mlbs. Additionally, the company has access to an existing mill and possesses the only fully permitted new mill location, which can be built at anytime. Add to that a revolutionary mining technology called ablation and a recipe is in place for major success. Click below to hear about ablation technology, which reduces costs by over 50% and nearly eliminates mine waste. Western Uranium is currently undervalued relative to its peers and owns a technology that can undercut it's peers. Production can be achieved in just 6 months time. Palisade Global Investments is a major shareholder in Western Uranium and a supporter of management and the company. Talking points from this week's interview: • World-wide uranium supply will not meet demand • The US only produces 10% of its own uranium currently • Ablation technology set to greatly reduce production costs and lower environmental impact • Western uranium is currently deeply undervalued

India's Environment Destroyed By Dangerous 'Rat-Hole' Mining
Broken Landscape: In rural India, the demand for coal has drastically altered the environment and the lives of those who depend on it. Unregulated 'rat-hole' mining serves the economy, but endangers both landscape and livelihood. “This place was pure and clean before. We used the river for drinking and cooking.” One fisherman recalls with painful nostalgia his memories of the river the village used to enjoy. “Now the people do not touch it. They are repulsed by it.” This is the result of the thousands of small-hold mines in the northeast Indian state of Meghalaya. They have run with no restriction – until now. The National Green Tribunal recently shut down mining in the region at the expense of the local economy, leading to coal mine owners and workers staging protests. With coal in such high demand, India has been forced to chose between economy and environment.

Nuclear Energy Explained: Risk or Opportunity
Please Read Below For More Information Anything with the word nuclear next to it usually comes with a fair bit of misunderstanding. Hopefully this video demystifies the process of how nuclear fuels are turned into electricity and how we can use them in combination with renewables in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the effects on the climate that come with high levels of them. Of course, there are many things that have been left out this video as nuclear energy, just as with any other source, has many different factors that need to be taken into account when making decisions. In order to fully understand the situation and make decisions, I highly recommend that you do some research of your own on the topic, rather than simply base your opinion on a four-minute YouTube video. It should also be noted that this video has been made from the perspective of the United States in general. Every area on Earth has different natural resources and environments that determine what works best there.

WUS 2015 Nuclear power and nuclear weapons dual technology issues
FRANK BOULTON (UK) Honorary lecturer, Southampton University School of Medicine, member of Medact’s Nuclear Interest Group ALFRED MEYER (USA) Board member and chair of the Radiation and Health Committee Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) THE SYMPOSIUM The World Uranium Symposium will address issues arising from the nuclear fuel chain, from mining uranium to its end-uses and byproducts for civilian or military purposes. Both scientific and community-based, the Symposium is organized around the following themes: health, environment, economy, ethics, governance, human rights and the rights of indigenous peoples. Open to the public, the symposium had hosted more than 300 people per day from 14 to 16 April 2015, and had included local, national and international representatives from the sectors of health, research, industry, education, civil society, policy makers and indigenous communities. local, national and/or international media were present. All presentations of the symposium will be posted in electronic formats (text and / or videos) after the Symposium, in French and / or English. • April 14 (Day 1): Uranium mines and the nuclear life cycle : health and environmental issues • April 15 (Day 2): Civil and military nuclear : ethics, economics and political issues • April 16 (Day 3): Human rights, indigenous peoples' rights and governance issues ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED The Symposium is jointly organized by Physicians for Global Survival (1985 Nobel Peace Prize), the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, Nature Québec, the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility and the Coalition pour que le Québec ait meilleure mine. It also receives support from the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (Swiss chapter), the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Sustainable Development Institute, the Cree Nation of Mistissini, MiningWatch Canada, and a number of other local, national and international partners. CONTEXT The Symposium is occurring at a time when many organizations and governments question the future ofnuclear power, currently providing about 11% of the world’s electricity. The year 2015 also marks the seventieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the corresponding United Nations negotiations of the Non Proliferation Treaty for the prevention and the abolition of nuclear arms. It will also see the tabling on a new UN treaty on climate change. Canada is one of the largest producers and exporters of uranium worldwide, yet its nuclear energy output is in relative decline. Only two provinces still operate nuclear reactors: Ontario and New Brunswick. While uranium has been primarily mined from Saskatchewan, the provinces of British Columbia and Nova Scotia have officially banned uranium mining. Quebec recently shut down its sole nuclear reactor and has tasked the Bureau d’audiences publiques sur l’environnement (BAPE) with conducting an investigation on issues related to uranium mining. It is expected to release its report by May 20 2015. The Symposium aims to tackle these different issues and to provide recommendations to decision makers to better ensure protection for the human health, global security and a safe environment

PLUTONIUM - WikiVidi Documentary
Plutonium is a radioactive chemical element with symbol Pu and atomic number 94. It is an actinide metal of silvery-gray appearance that tarnishes when exposed to air, and forms a dull coating when oxidized. The element normally exhibits six allotropes and four oxidation states. It reacts with carbon, halogens, nitrogen, silicon and hydrogen. When exposed to moist air, it forms oxides and hydrides that can expand the sample up to 70% in volume, which in turn flake off as a powder that is pyrophoric. It is radioactive and can accumulate in bones, which makes the handling of plutonium dangerous. Plutonium was first produced and isolated on December 14, 1940 by a deuteron bombardment of uranium-238 in the 60-inch cyclotron at the University of California, Berkeley. First neptunium-238 was synthesized which subsequently beta-decayed to form this new element with atomic number 94 and atomic weight 238 . Since uranium had been named after the planet Uranus and neptunium after the planet Ne... http://www.wikividi.com ____________________________________ Shortcuts to chapters: 00:03:47: Physical properties 00:06:06: Allotropes 00:08:06: Nuclear fission 00:10:14: Isotopes and nucleosynthesis 00:12:47: Decay heat and fission properties 00:13:15: Compounds and chemistry 00:16:25: Electronic structure 00:17:23: Alloys ____________________________________ Copyright WikiVidi.

Canary used for testing for carbon monoxide 1926 US Bureau of Mines
In the early part of the 20th century, miners in the United States took caged canaries into coal mines in order to provide warning of the presence of toxic gasses including carbon monoxide and methane. Canaries would visibly show distress and sway on their perches in the presence low concentrations of carbon monoxide before toppling over. The concept of the "canary in the coal mine" giving warning of a human health hazard is based on several principles. First, canaries were found to be more sensitive than both humans and other animals such as mice to the toxic effects of carbon monoxide. Second, the birds were allowed to share the same air exposures as the humans. Third, the occurrence of carbon monoxide poisoning in a bird was quite recognizable to the miners, since sick birds would tend to fall off of their perches and appear visibly ill. An article appearing in a 1914 issue of the Journal of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry provides a simple description of the concept (Burrell G, Seibert F. Experiments with small animals and carbon monoxide. Jl Indust Eng Chem. 1914;6:241--244.): Birds and mice may be used to detect carbon monoxide, because they are much more sensitive to the poisonous action of the gas than are men. Experiments by the Bureau of Mines show that canaries should be used in preference to mice, sparrows, or pigeons, because canaries are more sensitive to the gas. Rabbits, chickens, guinea pigs, or dogs, although useful for exploration work in mines, should be used only when birds or mice are unobtainable, and then, cautiously, because of their greater resistance to carbon monoxide poisoning. . . . Breathing apparatus must be used where birds show signs of distress, and, for this reason, birds are of great value in enabling rescue parties to use breathing apparatus to best advantage. For more on the use of animals as sensitive indicators of environmental hazards, providing an early warning system for public health, read the 2011Public Health Report - Animal Sentinels for Environmental and Public Health (http://www.publichealthreports.org/is... ) by John S. Reif, DVM, MSc, at Colorado State University, Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences. This is clipped from the 1926 film by the US Bureau of Mines titles, Oxygen Breathing Apparatus. The film shows the kinds of breathing apparatus used in mine rescues and explains their various parts. A mine rescue team explores a mine, testing for low oxygen content and carbon monoxide. The entire film is posted to my channel. This US Bureau of Mines film and many others are available at the US National Archive in College Park, Maryland.

Olympic Dam mine expansion- Environmental impacts of tailings & water by Dr Gavin Mudd - Pt 3
http://cuttlefishcountry.com BHP Billiton's Olympic Dam mine is massive and destined to become the biggest open cut mine in the world. Naturally, with massive mines come massive impacts... environmentally, socially and economically. Widely published environmental engineer Dr Gavin Mudd (Monash University) gives this presentation on the impact the mining operation will have from the desert to the sea, and beyond through the export of dangerous radioactive materials. Tailings dams will leak radioactive waste into the earth in the South Australian desert, the water drawn from the Great Artesian Basin will continue to dry natural mound springs, threaten pastoral and agricultural bores and endanger arid zone ecology and indigenous sacred sites. Dr Gavin Mudd delivered this presentation in Adelaide, South Australia on October 9th, 2011... the day before the mega-mine project received environmental approval from both State and Federal Governments.

Environment Excellence - Ashton Coal Operations, Yancoal (Recreating Nature)
Ashton Coal is located approximately 14 kilometres Northwest of Singleton in the Upper Hunter Valley of NSW. The operations include an underground coal mine, which is overlaid by the watercourse Bowmans Creek. In December 2010, Ashton Coal was granted approval to redirect sections of Bowmans Creek, to allow for the optimised mining of coal at the Ashton Underground Mine. The proposal involved the construction of two diversions to mitigate potential impacts on the flow of Bowmans Creek, in the event mine subsidence affected direct hydraulic connection to the creek.

April 22, 2009_Dianne Stokes_World Nuclear Fuel Cycle Conference public meeting_sydney.mp4
The World Nuclear Fuel Cycle Conference is meeting in Sydney April 21-23, 2009. This forum will be used to promote and further entrench Australias involvement in the global nuclear industry. As people around the world demand action on climate change, governments continue to use the climate crisis to push forward regressive and corporate driven policies. There is an aggressive global push to rebrand nuclear power as a green, clean solution to climate change, with claims a nuclear renaissance is ahead. Nuclear Power is No Solution to Climate Change: too dirty, too dangerous. Carbon emissions calculation must take into account the entire life cycle of uranium; mining, processing, transportation, construction and de-commissioning of reactors and radioactive waste disposal and management. Electricity production accounts for only about 25% of carbon emissions globally; doubling nuclear power would reduce greenhouse emissions by less than 5%. In Australia, building a nuclear reactor to supply the capital cities in all six states would reduce national emissions by just 4%. Further, there is still no method for storage or disposal of high level radioactive waste that can guarantee to isolate it from the environment, workers and communities for the hundreds of thousand of years it remains dangerous. And despite safeguards on uranium exports, as Minister Anthony Albanese has said, you can guarantee that uranium mining will lead to nuclear waste, but you can't guarantee it won't lead to nuclear weapons. Australias Role: Beginning and Ending the Global Nuclear Fuel Chain Since the ALP dropped its no new uranium mines policy in April 2007, there has been a plethora of uranium exploration applications across the NT, SA and WA. Olympic Dam Uranium Mine in SA, is proposed to expand four fold to become the biggest uranium mine in the world. At APEC in 2007, the Australian government became a signatory to the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP), further entrenching its role in the global nuclear fuel chain. Australia has 38% of the worlds known uranium deposits and Resources Minister Martin Ferguson has expressed a wish for Australia to become the largest miner and exporter of uranium in the world. Remaining a signatory of GNEP will increase pressure for Australia to take back high-level radioactive waste produced in overseas reactors in a leasing style arrangement. Nuclear Waste Community Resistance The ALP government is plowing ahead with the plan to force a radioactive waste dump on communities in the NT, despite promising to repeal Howard era legislation- the Commonwealth Radioactive Waste Management Act- that makes the dump possible. Increasing economic disadvantage in remote areas means many Aboriginal communities are feeling pressure to accept nuclear projects on their country as a source of jobs and income- sometimes in exchange for essential infrastructure like roads and housing. Despite this pressure, communities continue to resist the expansion of the nuclear industry in Australia. Successful community campaigns fought the uranium mine proposed for Jabiluka in Kakadu National Park. Central Australian residents are mobilising against uranium exploration at Angela Pamela, 25 km south of Alice Springs in the towns water catchment area. There is continued and strong opposition to the planned federal radioactive waste dump in the NT, already over a year behind schedule. It is important for national awareness and mobilisation to support communities directly targeted by the industry and workers whose health has been impacted. The Rudd Government must be held accountable for its radioactive rollout.

Dr. Patrick Moore: Ex-President of Greenpeace Talks Benefits of Nuclear, Mining, GMO Crops, and More
Many of the environmental and health issues we told are bad for us are actually of great benefit says the former President of Greenpeace, Dr. Patrick Moore. Dr. Moore worked for Greenpeace for over 20 years and quit largely due to the organization’s shift away from humanitarianism towards the vilification of. He went from being at the top of their organization to being on top of their most wanted list During his tenure, Dr. Moore led many campaigns against nuclear war, trophy hunting, killing whales, disposal of toxic waste and many other issues. Throughout most of his time at Greenpeace, Dr. Moore recognized a noble goal to save civilization. However, by the time he left, humans were being characterized as enemies of nature- as if we were separate from it. Dr. Moore say that nuclear is one of the cleanest, safest, most reliable, and cost effective forms of energy. France gets 70% of it's electricity from nuclear power, and their electricity cost is about half of Germany's which is phasing out nuclear and is using wind and solar. Their electricity cost has tripled. Monsanto, another enemy of Greenpeace, has improved seed production and aided the world in food production. 90% of Monsanto's seed are genetically modified. Farmers want GMO seeds because they are better for plant productivity and protection. Every credible science organization says GMOs are as safe or safer than conventional foods. No GMO crop gets on the market without rigorous testing. In a similar light, Dr. Moore believes that the chance of vaccines saving a life is a million times more than a vaccine causing harm This month, Dr. Moore wrote a report on THE POSITIVE IMPACT OF HUMAN CO2 EMISSIONS ON THE SURVIVAL OF LIFE ON EARTH. What he said is yet to be disputed: https://fcpp.org/sites/default/files/documents/Moore%20-%20Positive%20Impact%20of%20Human%20CO2%20Emissions.pdf In the report, Dr. Moore concludes that the burning of fossil fuels has reversed a million year long depletion of CO2 in the atmosphere caused by sea creatures and plant life.

Cambridge Forum: Carbon Tax to Combat Climate Change
The notion of a carbon tax as the most efficient way to combat greenhouse gas emissions was first proposed by MIT professor David G. Wilson in 1973 and was greeted with silence. James Hansen proposed the idea again 30 years later and was greeted with skepticism. Now Massachusetts has taken up the idea. A panel including Massachusetts State Senator Mike Barrett , co-sponsor of a bill proposing the nation’s first carbon tax, physicist and activist Dr. Gary Rucinski, and Anne Kelly, director of public policy at CERES, discusses using a carbon tax to combat global warming and create a sustainable economic future. How would a carbon tax work? What impact would it have on jobs and the economy? What hurdles would it have to clear to be adopted? Michael Barrett is a member of the Massachusetts Senate representing Bedford, Carlisle, Chelmsford, Concord, Lincoln, Waltham, Weston, and large parts of Lexington and Sudbury in Middlesex County. An attorney and consultant with expertise in the areas of healthcare and information technology, Barrett has published articles on public policy and politics in the Atlantic Monthly, Boston Globe, Boston Herald, Christian Science Monitor and New York Newsday. He is the co-sponsor, with Rep. Tom Conroy of Wayland, of a bill to introduce the nation’s first carbon tax in Massachusetts. Gary Rucinski is a physicist currently developing high performance teams at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. He is the co-founder and chair of Citizens for a Green Economy and Northeast Regional Coordinator for Citizens Climate Lobby, which he founded in 2010 to “create the political will for a stable climate.” One of the group’s current focal points is putting a pruce on carbon. Anne Kelly is Director of Public Policy at CERES, a non-profit coalition of investors and businesses which seeks to promote leadership and best practices in sustainability. An environmental lawyer with more than twenty years of experience practicing in the public and private sectors, she also directs BICEP, a coalition of 23 companies, including Nike, Starbucks, and eBay, seeking to advocate for meaningful climate and energy policies at the federal level.

Radionuclides: The Radioisotope Part XIII General Sciences 1951 US Army Training Film

US Army Training Film PMF-5147c Public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radionuclide A radionuclide or radioactive nuclide is a nuclide that is radioactive. Also referred to as a radioisotope or radioactive isotope, it is an isotope with an unstable nucleus, characterized by excess energy available to be imparted either to a newly created radiation particle within the nucleus or via internal conversion. During this process, the radionuclide is said to undergo radioactive decay, resulting in the emission of gamma ray(s) and/or subatomic particles such as alpha or beta particles. These emissions constitute ionizing radiation. Many radionuclides occur naturally, and others are produced artificially, for example in nuclear reactors and cyclotrons. There are about 650 radionuclides with half-lives longer than 60 minutes (see list of nuclides). Of these, 34 are primordial radionuclides that existed before the creation of the solar system, and there are another 50 radionuclides detectable in nature as daughters of these, or produced naturally on Earth by cosmic radiation. There is a much larger number of radionuclides, more than 2400, with decay half-lives shorter than 60 minutes. Most of these are only produced artificially, and have very short half-lives. For comparison, there are about 254 stable nuclides. All chemical elements have radionuclides. Even the lightest element, hydrogen, has a well-known radionuclide, tritium. Elements heavier than lead, and the elements technetium and promethium, exist only as radionuclides. Radionuclides with suitable half-lives play an important part in a number of technologies, for example ionization smoke detectors and nuclear medicine. A pharmaceutical drug made with radionuclides is called a radiopharmaceutical, and an imaging tracer made with radionuclides is called a radioactive tracer. Nuclear medicine makes use of these drugs and tracers for radiation therapy such as brachytherapy and medical imaging. Radionuclides can also present both real and perceived dangers to health... Origin Naturally occurring radionuclides fall into three categories: primordial radionuclides, secondary radionuclides, and cosmogenic radionuclides. Primordial radionuclides, such as uranium and thorium, originate mainly from the interiors of stars and are still present as their half-lives are so long they have not yet completely decayed. Secondary radionuclides are radiogenic isotopes derived from the decay of primordial radionuclides. They have shorter half-lives than primordial radionuclides. Cosmogenic isotopes, such as carbon-14, are present because they are continually being formed in the atmosphere due to cosmic rays. Artificially produced radionuclides can be produced by nuclear reactors, particle accelerators or by radionuclide generators... Uses Radionuclides are used in two major ways: for their chemical properties and as sources of radiation. Radionuclides of familiar elements such as carbon can serve as radioactive tracers because they are chemically very similar to the nonradioactive nuclides, so most chemical, biological, and ecological processes treat them in a nearly identical way. One can then examine the result with a radiation detector, such as a Geiger counter, to determine where the provided atoms ended up. For example, one might culture plants in an environment in which the carbon dioxide contained radioactive carbon; then the parts of the plant that had laid down atmospheric carbon would be radioactive. In nuclear medicine, radioisotopes are used for diagnosis, treatment, and research. Radioactive chemical tracers emitting gamma rays or positrons can provide diagnostic information about a person's internal anatomy and the functioning of specific organs. This is used in some forms of tomography: single-photon emission computed tomography and positron emission tomography scanning and Cherenkov luminescence imaging. Radioisotopes are also a method of treatment in hemopoietic forms of tumors; the success for treatment of solid tumors has been limited. More powerful gamma sources sterilise syringes and other medical equipment. In biochemistry and genetics, radionuclides label molecules and allow tracing chemical and physiological processes occurring in living organisms, such as DNA replication or amino acid transport.

Fast Nuclear Reactors: An Inexhaustible Source of Energy?
Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2010/10/06/A_Low-Carbon_Future_The_Nuclear_Question Barry Brook, Director of Climate Science at The University of Adelaide Environment Institute, discusses the potential impact of fast nuclear reactors. He explains that by recycling and reusing nuclear waste, these plants are capable of turning a golf ball-sized piece of uranium into a lifetime's worth of energy. "The U.S. has mined enough uranium already, to power all of its energy needs for about a thousand years," explains Brook. ----- With the obvious urgent need to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and the global demand for energy rising exponentially, nuclear energy may be the only non-carbon-emitting technology capable of meeting the world's requirements. The nuclear industry's image has been compromised by the threat of weapons proliferation, reactor malfunctions and the storage of radioactive waste. However, today's proponents argue that improvements in reactor design have made them safer, as well as more fuel-efficient and cost-competitive to build, compared with coal plants. Participants in the panel discussion include energy technology entrepreneur Gus Nathan, environmental scientist Barry Brook, and international energy law expert Kim Talus. Talus is especially critical of the absence of balanced and objective discussion about nuclear energy in Australia, the polarised positions akin to a "religious issue." He also opines the lack of public education and industry expertise. Brook is convinced a very fast reactor is something Australia should be strongly considering. "Thinking Critically About Sustainable Energy: A Nuclear Future" is the fourth of a series of public forums hosted by RiAus aimed at providing a comprehensive examination of sustainable energy technologies and a critical evaluation of their potential for reducing carbon emissions. - Australian Broadcasting Corporation Barry Brook is an environmental scientist known for his lively blog at bravenewclimate.com. He is currently Sir Hubert Wilkins Chair of Climate Change at the University of Adelaide's Environment Institute. Brook completed his PhD at Macquarie University on the subject of population viability analysis in 1999. He has a background in biodiversity management and conservation ecology. Brook's work focuses on global environmental change, and the impact that climate change and global warming are having on traditional risks to natural systems. In recent years he has become a respected commentator on energy policy, and has conducted considerable research on systems modeling for sustainable energy. He recently co-authored with Ian Lowe the book Why vs. Why: Nuclear Power.

Nuclear energy production and nuclear power plants in india
Scientists discovered nuclear energy at the end of the nineteenth century. Within fifty years it became a decisive factor in our war with Japan and has affected international arms policies ever since. A nuclear power plant is a thermal power station in which the heat source is a nuclear reactor. As is typical in all conventional thermal power stations the heat is used to generate steam which drives a steam turbine connected to an electric generator which produces electricity. In a nuclear-fueled power plant – much like a fossil-fueled power plant – water is turned into steam, which in turn drives turbine generators to produce electricity. The difference is the source of heat. At nuclear power plants, the heat to make the steam is created when uranium atoms split – called fission. Advantages of nuclear power generation: Nuclear power generation does emit relatively low amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2). The emissions of green house gases and therefore the contribution of nuclear power plants to global warming is therefore relatively little. Disadvantages. Like fossil fuels, nuclear fuels are non-renewable energy resources. And if there is an accident, large amounts of radioactive material could be released into the environment. In addition, nuclear waste remains radioactive and is hazardous to health for thousands of years. Nuclear power stations do not produce smoke particles to pollute the atmosphere or emit gases that contribute to acid rain. Nuclear energy is by far the most concentrated form of energy - a lot of energy is produced from a small mass of fuel. This reduces transport costs - (although the fuel is radioactive and therefore each transport that does occur is expensive because of security implications). Nuclear power is reliable. It does not depend on the weather. We can control the output from a nuclear power station to fit our needs. Nuclear power produces a small volume of waste DISADVANTAGES: Disposal of nuclear waste is very expensive. As it is radioactive it has to be disposed of in such a way as it will not pollute the environment. Decommissioning of nuclear power stations is expensive and takes a long time. (In fact we have not yet decommissioned one!) Nuclear accidents can spread 'radiation producing particles' over a wide area, This radiation harms the cells of the body which can make humans sick or even cause death. Illness can appear or strike people years after they were exposed to nuclear radiation and genetic problems can occur too. A possible type of reactor disaster is known as a meltdown. In a meltdown, the fission reaction of an atom goes out of control, which leads to a nuclear explosion releasing great amounts of radioactive particles into the environment. See Chernobyl. For an Essay useful: The study of nuclear energy began in the nineteenth century when Marie and Pierre Curie discovered the radioactive elements radium and polonium. Before this only uranium and thorium were the only radioactive elements that were known. Radium and polonium were hundreds of times more radioactive than uranium. The Curies won the 1903 Nobel Prize in physics for these discoveries. Seven years later Marie Curie won the Nobel Prize in chemistry for refining radium. She was the first person to win the Nobel Prize twice. In 1905, Albert Einstein developed a theory about the relationship of mass and energy. The formula, E=mc2 is probably the most famous outcome from Einstein's theory of relativity. The formula states that Energy (E) equals mass (m) times the speed of light squared. In essence, it means mass is just one form of energy. Since the speed of light is an enormous number, 186,000 miles per second, and in the equation it is squared, a small amount of mass can be converted to a phenomenal amount of energy. Nuclear reactors are based around this theory because small amounts of mass can produce large amounts of energy. n December 1938, two German scientist demonstrated nuclear fission. These two scientists, Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassman, found they could split the nucleus of a uranium atom by bombarding it with neutrons, which are the uncharged part of atoms. As the uranium nucleus splits, some of its mass is converted to energy by Einstein's Law.

Hazards of Renewable Energy The facts are in and yes Renewable Energy and technologies are lowering the carbon footprint slowly over time. But let’s make it clear that All energy sources have some impact on our environment. Fossil fuels—coal, oil, and natural gas—do substantially more harm than renewable energy sources by most measures, including air and water pollution, damage to public health, wildlife and habitat loss, water use, land use, and global warming emissions. However, renewable sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, and hydropower also have environmental impacts, some of which are significant. For instance, the amount of land they take up, the sounds and vibrations are big complaint by nearby homeowners. There are also greenhouse gases caused by the manufacturing of these renewable manufactures of solar and wind farms. Not to mention the human dangers associated with going 100% renwable energy. Wind Turbines have the highest accident rate in the work place. The transportation of the giant Blades for these Wind Mills are challenging to transport. The manufacturing isn’t that safe either, and they seem to attract lightening which casuse severe damage to the turbine engines.

Pollution And Its Types
Follow us at: https://plus.google.com/+tutorvista/ Check us out at http://chemistry.tutorvista.com/environmental-chemistry/pollution.html Different Types of Pollution There are nine basic types of environmental pollution, and each one has detrimental affects on wildlife, human habitation, and the quality of life in the affected area. Air Pollution :Air pollution is defined as any contamination of the atmosphere that disturbs the natural composition and chemistry of the air. This can be in the form of particulate matter such as dust or excessive gases like carbon dioxide or other vapors that cannot be effectively removed through natural cycles, such as the carbon cycle or the nitrogen cycle. Air pollution comes from a wide variety of sources. Some of the most excessive sources include: •Vehicle or manufacturing exhaust •Forest fires, volcanic eruptions, dry soil erosion, and other natural sources •Building construction or demolition Depending on the concentration of air pollutants, several effects can be noticed. Smog increases, higher rain acidity, crop depletion from inadequate oxygen, higher rates of asthma, and global warming are all related to increased air pollution. Water Pollution: Water pollution involves any contaminated water, whether from chemical, particulate, or bacterial matter that degrades the waters quality and purity. Water pollution can occur in oceans, rivers, lakes, and underground reservoirs, and as different water sources flow together the pollution can spread. Causes of water pollution include: •Increased sediment from soil erosion •Improper waste disposal and littering •Leaching of soil pollution into water supplies •Organic material decay in water supplies The effects of water pollution include decreasing the quantity of drinkable water available, lowering water supplies for crop irrigation, and impacting fish and wildlife populations that require water of a certain purity for survival. Soil Pollution: Soil, or land pollution, is contamination of the soil that prevents natural growth and balance in the land whether it is used for cultivation, habitation, or a wildlife preserve. Some soil pollution, such as the creation of landfills, is deliberate, while much more is accidental and can have widespread effects. Soil pollution sources include: •Hazardous waste and sewage spills •Non-sustainable farming practices, such as the heavy use of inorganic pesticides •Strip mining, deforestation, and other destructive practices •Household dumping and littering Soil contamination can lead to poor growth and reduced crop yields, loss of wildlife habitat, water and visual pollution, soil erosion, and desertification. Noise Pollution :Noise pollution refers to undesirable levels of noises caused by human activity that disrupt the standard of living in the affected area. Noise pollution can come from: •Traffic •Airports •Railroads •Manufacturing plants •Construction or demolition •Concerts Some noise pollution may be temporary while other sources are more permanent. Effects may include hearing loss, wildlife disturbances, and a general degradation of lifestyle. Radioactive Pollution : Radioactive pollution is one of the types of pollution that is rare but extremely detrimental, even deadly, when it occurs. Because of its intensity and the difficulty of reversing damage, there are strict government regulations to control radioactive pollution. Sources of radioactive contamination include: •Nuclear power plant accidents or leakage •Improper nuclear waste disposal •Uranium mining operations Radiation pollution can cause birth defects, cancer, sterilization, and other health problems for human and wildlife populations. It can also sterilize the soil and contribute to water and air pollution. Thermal Pollution : Thermal pollution is excess heat that creates undesirable effects over long periods of time. The earth has a natural thermal cycle, but excessive temperature increases can be considered a rare type of pollution with long term effects. Many types of thermal pollution are confined to areas near their source, but multiple sources can have wider impacts over a greater geographic area. Thermal pollution may be caused by: •Power plants •Urban sprawl •Air pollution particulates that trap heat •Deforestation •Loss of temperature moderating water supplies As temperatures increase, mild climatic changes may be observed, and wildlife populations may be unable to recover from swift changes.

The deposit occurs in an ancient meander (oxbow), which is now a valley margin swamp, on the flood plain of the Okanagan River where it has eroded into a glacial terrace. Uraniferous groundwaters are infiltrating from side drainages into the porous terrace and uranium deposits occur where the uranium is adsorbed and probably reduced, in this case, in some peaty layers. The deposit contains about 30 t of U308 Triuranium octoxide (U3O8) is a compound of uranium. It is present as an olive green to black, odorless solid. It is one of the more popular forms of yellowcake and is shipped between mills and refineries in this form. Triuranium octoxide occurs naturally as the olive-green-colored mineral pitchblende. U3O8 is readily produced from UF6 and has potential long-term stability in a geologic environment. In the presence of oxygen (O2), uranium dioxide (UO2) is oxidized to U3O8, whereas uranium trioxide (UO3) loses oxygen at temperatures above 500 °C and is reduced to U3O8. The compound can be produced by any one of three primary chemical conversion processes, involving either uranium tetrafluoride (UF4) or uranyl fluoride (UO2F2) as intermediates, under normal environmental conditions, U3O8 is one of the most kinetically and thermodynamically stable forms of uranium and also because it is the form of uranium found in nature.
