How Ohio's Energy Economy Became a Radioactive 19th Century Relic Today Ohio's fossil-fueled, landlocked capital city is the western world's largest with neither internal commuter light rail nor access by passenger train service from anywhere else. After being at the cusp of major solar & wind power advances, the state has all but killed the prospects for any large new green energy projects. The state may now miss one of history's biggest and most profitable technological transformations

36 Years of Three Mile Island's Lethal Lies ...and Still Counting The lies that killed people at Three Mile Island 36 years ago on March 28, 1979 are still being told at Chernobyl, Fukushima, Diablo Canyon, Davis-Besse " and at TMI itself. As the first major reactor accident that was made known to the public is sadly commemorated, and as the global nuclear industry collapses, let's count just 36 tip-of-the iceberg ways the nuclear industry's radioactive legacy continues to fester:

Fighting Our Fossil-Nuke Extinction Our choice is not between nuclear power and fossil fuels. Either is sufficient to kill us outright or strand us alone on a dead planet. We can no more survive on a planet burned and poisoned by fossil fuels than we can on one mutated and heated by atomic energy. Time is short and the two movements must make their peace. We have the means. Now we need the will.

The Nuclear Omnicide Burning coal spews still more radiation into our air, along with mercury and other lethal pollutants. Fracking for gas draws toxins up from the earth's crust. Industry apologists say reactors can moderate the climate chaos caused by burning those fossil fuels. But fighting global weirding with atomic power is like trying to cure a fever with a lethal dose of X-ray. The larger biospheric clock is ticking. We need to act.

Obama’s Nuke-Powered Drone Strike on America’s Fiscal Sanity So the "all the above" energy strategy now deems we dump another $6.5 billion in bogus loan guarantees down the atomic drain. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz has announced finalization of hotly contested taxpayer handouts for the two Vogtle reactors being built in Georgia. Another $1.8 billion waits to be pulled out of your pocket and poured down the radioactive sink hole. A nuke-powered drone strike on fiscal sanity.

Thousands of Nuclear Regulators Sent Home During Shutdown All of this has hurt the nuclear industry. A long, drawn-out shutdown would have gone further, killing the re-licensing process and the endless flow of rubber-stamped regulatory exceptions on which the industry thrives. An unmanageable accident in the midst of this shorthanded mess would have been another chime in a chorus of death knells.

Will 9 GOP governors put Romney in the White House? Republican governors of the nine key swing states above have the power to flip the election without significant public recourse. Except for exit polls there is no established way to check how the official electronic vote count might square with the actual intent of the electorate. And there is no legal method by which an electronic vote count can be effectively challenged.

Will the GOP steal America's 2012 election? For those working on the 2012 election, and for democracy in general, it will take an extraordinary commitment to protecting the registered status of millions of Americans, getting them to the polls, guaranteeing their right to vote once there, and making sure there is an accurate vote count -- electronic and otherwise -- once those votes are cast.

Four Ways Ohio Republicans are Already Stealing the 2012 Election By purging registration lists, limiting voting times, messing with voter ID requirements and controlling electronic voting machines, the GOP has a huge leg up on winning what has often been America's key swing state. Clearly the Ohio GOP is once again geared up to deny the vote -- and vote count -- to as many Democrats as it can. If it succeeds, as it did in 2004, Barack Obama stands little chance of being re-elected.

The Nuclear Industry Has Melted in Japan and France Japan's stunning reality is that its gargantuan capital investment in more than 50 commercial reactors is now dead in the water. Likewise the demise of Nikolas Sarkozy: allies at France's nuclear-commited utility have been Europe's primary pushers of the "Peaceful Atom." Now his Socialist rival is running the country, backed by a constituency largely supportive of a green conversion to parallel the one in neighboring Germany.

Obama's Atomic Solyndra The future of nuclear power now hangs on a single decision by President Obama---and us. His Office of Management & Budget could cave to the unsustainable demands of reactor builders who cannot handle the standard terms of a loan agreement. Or he could defend basic financial procedures and stand up for the future of the American economy. There are virtually no private investors willing to back new reactor construction.

Is Fukushima now ten Chernobyls into the sea? Fukushima is much closer to the ocean than Chernobyl,so more intense contamination might be expected.The high radiation levels being measured indicate Fukushima's most important impacts may be on marine life.The US has ceased measuring contamination in Pacific seafood.But for centuries to come,at least some radioactive materials dumped into the sea will find their way into the creatures of the sea & humans who depend on them.

Will the Nuclear Power Industry Melt Down? A critical moment is coming soon, when Obama goes to Congress to request an additional $36 billion in loan guarantees for new nukes in his 2012 budget.
