"Federal government" BUSTED for
forcing American nuclear industry to become a ticking time bomb
By Jim Stone - Freelance Journalist
I can guage how accurate a report is by how much it gets shilled in the
blogs, while being defended by intelligent people. This report is
getting it a LOT worse than the Fukushima report, which got nailed bad.
This one REALLY hit a nerve. This is possibly the biggest scandal in
American history, and it may well destroy your future if steps are not
taken by the people to force the FED to overturn the mandated lunacy
which now stands as a menace to us all.
You have been told
the nuclear waste must go somewhere. You have been
told it needed to be stored inside a mountain in the desert, where it
will sit as a threat and menace to the world for millions of years. You
have been told there is nothing we can do about it. But what if you
have been told a lie? What if that "spent fuel" was not spent at all?
What if a technology existed which allowed the same fuel to be used
over and over, twenty times in fact, and expended so fully that fuel
rods would be safe enough to handle directly straight out of the
reactor? Think any "spent fuel pools" would be full? And even if this
What if foreign
nations, (France was one) offered us hundreds of
billions of dollars for our "spent fuel" only to have the U.S.
Government refuse the offer for no reason at all? Would that not solve
the problem of getting rid of it? And the final question, WHY would the
Fed want so much nuclear material sitting around the country, only to
become a menace? Could it be that we do not have a government, and
instead have a band of usurpers in power who have intentionally set us
up for a fall? After reading this report, I believe you will be
inclined to think so.
consists of hard scientific fact, and even harder answers.
my journey of discovery
in my investigation into the Fukushima disaster, I interviewed an 85
year old nuclear engineer who worked in the nuclear industry during
America's glory days, and earned GE over 100 patents. He was one of the
engineers who designed Fukushima, so naturally when conducting a real
investigation into such a disaster a responsible journalist would want
that type of reference. I was surprised when my prior study of the
reactor systems there was so thorough that he had no information about
Fukushima I did not already dig up, and he was very surprised when I
told him details about the inner workings of the reactor he never
expected anyone in the media to know.
When I started
to think I was going to walk away with nothing, he dropped a bombshell
on a totally different subject. He opened his new direction of the
discussion with the phrase "My team succeeded in closing the nuclear
loop, and Carter banned our miracle with an executive order
is what followed that introductory line, and the reason why we need to
oust the FED and start over.
The following is
what he said in the interview
I started in the
American nuclear program all the way back at the time
of the Manhattan project, and have been involved in reactor design and
nuclear engineering my whole life. There was one answer we all searched
for, and it was how to close the nuclear loop.
When a reactor
such as a boiling water reactor uses fuel, the waste
products, which are highly radioactive isotopes that have a different
fission characteristic than the fuel, build up in the fuel and poison
the nuclear reaction. A reactor such as a boiling water reactor can
only use the fuel until it gets contaminated by these isotopes enough
to change the nature of the nuclear reactions taking place. The
reaction environment inside a boiling water reactor is only one such
environment that will work to trigger a chain reaction, and if that
spent fuel is put into a reactor made from different materials, those
materials can favor the burning of the poisonous isotopes, and use the
isotopes as fuel until the fuel is purified of them, and therefore had
it's original radiological characteristics restored. Once that is
accomplished, the fuel can go back into the boiling water reactor, and
used as new.
We perfected the
second reactor design, which used liquid sodium as a
coolant, and the reactor ran much hotter - 1100 farenheit as opposed to
550 in a boiling water reactor. The liquid sodium circulated inside the
reactor in lieu of water, with the heat of the reaction being removed
from the system by a heat exchanger which boiled the water outside the
reactor for use in producing electricity. The temperature difference
and coolant characteristics facilitated the burning of the isotopes,
and you got to use both sides of the reaction - one side produced
electricity while poisoning the fuel, and the other side produced
electricity while burning the poisons out. This process can be repeated
20 times, and when it is finished the fuel is DEAD and no longer
hazardous because all of it's radiological potential has been used up.
It was a dream come true, and Carter banned it by executive order!
specifically stated that the burn down was so complete that the
spent fuel was safe to handle directly with bare hands, and needed no
special care or maintenance at all.
He then went on to
lament about what a waste of money it was, because
the fuel is expensive, and they were only using it to about five
percent of its total potential. He lamented the fact that his life's
greatest accomplishment got banned for no good reason, and it was a
tremendous waste of money to not use the technology his team developed.
Electricity would have been cheap. REAL CHEAP. So cheap that homes
would not have been heated with oil or natural gas, electricity would
have been the only sensible choice. Furthermore, with a reduction in
the price of electricity by at least 10X, electric cars would have been
a no brainer.
would have been America's free energy future, with the only real cost
being maintenance of infrastructure.
His take on it was
that we were now paying too much for electricity. I
guess that's how an engineer thinks. He had read my article on
Fukushima and liked it, so one would guess his eyes were open to the
global conspiracy. Even still I think he missed the obvious in what he
is my take, and it has NOTHING to do with price, preservation of
resources, or free energy.
are HUGE. They have an enormous amount of nuclear
material in them. One boiling water reactor core the size of the ones
at Fukushima can easily hold enough fissionable material to make
countless atomic bombs. And with the technology that makes re-using
that fuel illegal, it builds up at a rate of 25 tons per gigawatt YEAR.
This means that even small facilities like Fort Calhoun have
approximately a million pounds of highly radioactive "poisoned" fuel
sitting in their pools waiting for the right combination of problems to
cause a disaster.
GE and others designed the nuclear facilities both here and
abroad, they had calculated that they would indeed succeed in closing
the nuclear loop. So they designed the nuclear facilities with
approximately a 20X safety margin in the fuel pools, because they did
not have a clear date on when the technology would be perfected. It was
my impression from this engineer that they got it sooner than expected.
So fortunately the fuel pools were over built. But they were never
built to withstand the fuel burdens that would result from a political
decision to destroy the technology altogether.
So now, 40 years
down the road, we have fuel pools around the country
that are so full that they have exceeded even the extremely generous
safety margins they were originally designed to have, and even modest
pools often have over 400 tons of highly active isotope ridden "spent"
fuel in them.
fuel pool cooling systems was never intended to be
necessary. GE and others wanted one or two cores worth of fuel sitting
in a pool at any one time. This would make it so that even if all
cooling failed, there would be no boiling of the water in the pool, no
pending disaster possible from equipment failure no matter how severe.
But the way it is now, if there is any sort of attack or disaster which
prevents fuel pool maintenance at any of the facilities around the
country for a period exceeding three days, all hell will break loose
and a nuclear disaster of unimaginable magnitude just like Fukushima
will take place. And it never needed to be this way, in fact, the
situation is criminal.
the lunacy of America's Federally mandated nuclear
sabotage, countries like France and Germany stepped up to the plate
offering to buy our 5% spent fuel for billions of dollars. Heck, they
were not held political hostage by a hostile government, and could
certainly use a "freebie". But instead our government mandated NO
transport of the fuel to foreign nations, NO FURTHER USE WHATSOEVER.
Use it 5 percent, leaving 95 percent of the radiological hazard
remaining, and please let it build up in a pool that needs maintenance.
Shills have said it was the import/export restrictions which caused
this, but since those are written by the same government that banned
the closing of the "nuclear loop", the restrictions are only a further
indictment of the FED for causing this problem.
the intentional building of the threat from having so
much nuclear material sitting around came all the government scandals
and lies about needing to put the fuel somewhere. Inside a mountain in
the desert. Inside a dry cask. Maybe in the ocean, all the while the
general american public was kept oblivious to the obvious answer: If we
are not allowed to use it because of a nonsensical piece of
legislation, why not let someone else have it, when they are willing to
EVEN PAY FOR IT?
is what I believe is the answer. And this answer needs to be spread far
Whatever you think
of Kennedy, on the day of his death he was our last
hope. No one since has been anything other than an enemy infiltrator,
The enemy is not only inside the gates, it was getting a paycheck from
you 40 years ago.
Consider this. Our
government intentionally put in place policies that
de-industrialized America. That's an act of war. Our government put in
place policies that intentionally destroyed our schools. That's an act
of war. And I consider FORCING VIA MANDATE the buildup of hundreds of
thousands, if not millions of nuclear warheads worth of perfectly good
reactor fuel just waiting for a disaster around the country to be an
act of war as well - Only an enemy would intentionally mandate the
creation of such a threat, who on earth would, other than someone who
hated this country? Not only did we lose a marvelous clean virtually
free energy future, that future got converted into a threat that could
very easily destroy us. All it would take to kill America, with our
nuclear facilities drastically overloaded with spent fuel, is 150 smart
bombs. ONE BOMBING RUN AND IT IS OVER.
