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.

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.

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.

High rez version of the slides here: http://bravenewclimate.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/bwb_anu_np.pdf Fossil fuels currently supply about 80% of modern society's primary energy. Given the imperatives of climate change, pollution, energy security and dwindling supplies, and enormous technical, logistical and economic challenges of scaling up coal or gas power plants with carbon capture and storage to sequester all that carbon, we are faced with the necessity of a nearly complete transformation of the world's energy systems. Nuclear power is capable of providing all the carbon-free energy that mankind requires, although the prospect of such a massive deployment raises questions of uranium shortages, increased energy, environmental and socio-political impacts from mining and fuel enrichment, and so on. These potential roadblocks can all be greatly alleviated or dispensed with, however, through the use of fast neutron reactors coupled to full fuel recycling. The Integral Fast Reactor (IFR), a sodium-cooled, metal-fueled pool design, developed at U.S. national laboratories in the latter years of the last century, can economically and cleanly supply all the energy the world needs without any further mining or enrichment of uranium. This talk will cover the history and technical basis of the IFR and similar "Generation IV" designs, consider current fast reactor developments in China, India, Russia and elsewhere, and consider realistic timetables for large-scale deployment and the critical synergies with current reactor technologies. PRESENTER: Professor Barry W. Brook (University of Adelaide, Centre for Energy Technology) is a founding member of the Science Council for Global Initiatives an international nonprofit organization dedicated to informing the public and policymakers about technologies and strategies that can lead to an energy rich world. SCGI provides a forum for many of the world's prominent scientists, authors and activists to collaborate and share their knowledge regarding solutions to the world's energy, resource and environmental problems. It includes some of the world's leading experts on advanced nuclear power systems, and climate change. Original: http://physics.anu.edu.au/events.php?EventID=36

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. .

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. Human burning of fossil fuels could actually be saving the world! For more info follow Dr. Moore on twitter @ecosensenow

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.

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.

Security of Supply of Mineral Resources (SoS MinErals) is a multi-million pound research programme, backed by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council, in partnership with industry and academia, and our global partner FAPESP. Global action to protect the environment and to mitigate and adapt to increased atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) is demanding significant changes in the way we generate and use energy. This initiative focuses on the science needed to sustain the security of supply of the strategic elements that underpin current and future green energy technologies — the so-called 'e-tech elements': cobalt (Co), tellurium (Te), slenium (Se), neodymium (Nd), indium (In), gallium (Ga) and heavy rare earth elements (HREE). The programme aims to enhance global security of supply of these e-tech elements in two ways; firstly through improved understanding of e-tech element cycling and concentration in natural systems, and secondly by using this information to develop improved recovery processes from primary sources in order to mitigate the environmental effects of extraction and recovery of e-tech elements.

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.

Roger Moody is interviewed in this film about uranium mining ahead of a talk he gave in Stroud organised by Stroud District Green Party. Roger is Features Editor at Mines and Communities. More info at: http://www.minesandcommunities.org/ See also recent talk in Stroud about nuclear waste: http://stroudcommunity.tv/the-future-of-radioactive-waste-and-nuclear-safety-in-gloucestershire/ Amongst his publications are: "Rocks and Hard Places : The Globalization of Mining". The world of international mining is changing rapidly. Mineral consumption is outstripping the capabilities of both communities and fragile ecosystems to cope with bigger and bigger mines. Moody shows that mining can impact severely on local communities, ways of life and the environment. This key book concludes with urgent proposals to control multinationals in a sector that is at the core of resource exploitation. "The Gulliver File: Uranium Mining Industry [Hardcover]". This is a study of the world of mining - a book born from the experience of numerous environmental, anti-nuclear and indigenous groups, concerned about the negative impact of huge mineral mining projects. The book has profiles of more than 650 companies worldwide, including full details of their ultimate ownership and their subsidiaries and detailed information on hundreds of mining prospects - along with full accounts of resistance to them.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

"Quad Gen" combined heat and power plants supply Hellenic with more reliable and less expensive energy while substantially reducing the environmental impact of its existing operations including reducing carbon emissions by more than 80,000 metric tons per year and comparable reduction in system emissions of SOx and fine particles ("particulate matter"). Our solution involves building a co-generation facility at each Hellenic location to provide electric power, heat and steam, chilled water, and food-grade carbon dioxide. The "Quad-Gen" plants use one or more simple gas engines, and capture the exhaust heat to provide heating, hot water, and steam. A portion of the hot water is transformed to chilled water via an absorption chiller. Finally, carbon dioxide is removed from the exhaust stack, compressed purified to beverage/food-grade quality and used to carbonate Hellenic's carbonated drinks. With this technology we are able to reduce our CO2 emissions by 95%. The "Quad-Gen" design significantly reduces Hellenic's environmental footprint—carbon emissions for the first phase of projects will be reduced by nearly 80,000 metric tons per year 3d technical animation and presentation by ImageMaker Adv Inc www.imaker.ca

Berkeley Energia (BKY) Berkeley Energia Limited (BKY AIM/ASX) is a high impact, clean energy company focussed on bringing its wholly owned Salamanca project into production, commencing initial development in mid-2016. The world class uranium project is being developed in an historic mining area in western Spain, about three hours west of Madrid. Following recent ministerial approval, the Company has now received all the European Union and National level approvals required for the initial development. The project will generate measurable social and environmental benefits in the form jobs and skills training in a depressed rural community. It will also make a significant contribution to the security of supply of Europe’s zero carbon energy needs, where Euratom recently rated “lack of investment in new mines” as the number one risk facing European utilities.”

Dangerous Invention which can wipe out humanity खतरनाक अविष्कार जो ख़त्म करसकता हैं पूरी दुनिया को As of today, nuclear energy is considered as one of the most environmentally friendly source of energy as it produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions during the production of electricity as compared to traditional sources like coal power plants. Nuclear fission is the process that is used in nuclear reactors to produce high amount of energy using element called uranium. It is the energy that is stored in the nucleus of an atom. Low Pollution: Nuclear power also has a lot fewer greenhouse emissions. It has been determined that the amount of greenhouse gases have decreased by almost half because of the prevalence in the utilization of nuclear power. Nuclear energy has the least effect on nature since it doesn’t discharge any gasses like methane and carbon dioxide, which are the primary “greenhouse gasses.” There is no unfavorable impact on water, land or any territories because of the utilization of nuclear power, except in times where transportation is utilized. Environmental Impact: One of the biggest issues is environmental impact in relation to uranium. The process of mining and refining uranium hasn’t been a clean process. Actually transporting nuclear fuel to and from plants represents a pollution hazard. Also, once the fuel is used, you can’t simply take it to the landfill – it’s radioactive and dangerous. Radioactive Waste Disposal: As a rule, a nuclear power plant creates 20 metric tons of nuclear fuel per year, and with that comes a lot of nuclear waste. When you consider each nuclear plant on Earth, you will find that that number jumps to approximately 2,000 metric tons a year. The greater part of this waste transmits radiation and high temperature, implying that it will inevitably consume any compartment that holds it. It can also cause damage to living things in and around the plants. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Fidget Spinner Facts You Never Knew फीडगेट स्पिनर" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjJrZRgKsFI -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

In the face of increasing world population and demand for electricity, nuclear energy is one of the few non-CO2-emitting energy resources producing electricity on a large enough scale to have a significant impact on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. However, compared with other electrical energy resources, the nuclear industry faces unique hurdles to expansion and waste management. Geology plays a critical role in the nuclear fuel cycle beyond just the mining of uranium for nuclear fuel. Come hear Frannie Skomurski, a geologist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, discuss the role of rocks and minerals in controlling the fate of contaminants in the environment, inspiring ideas for ceramic waste forms, and storing used nuclear fuel, including what we can learn from nature's nuclear reactor.

The future of renewable energy—like wind turbines and solar panels—relies on rare earth elements and the best source for these might just be coal. With funds from DOE, DOD and NSF, University of Kentucky researchers Jim Hower and Jack Groppo are locating and evaluating rare earth elements and processing coal-based materials, alongside industry and university partners.
