Become a Fan. You'll get emails whenever I post articles on OpEdNews
Anti-Nuclear and environmental activist, publisher of two blogs on the subject of nuclear energy. Living less than three miles from Entergy's Indian Point, which is leaking tritium and strontium 90 into the Hudson, I write in the hopes of awakening the public to the horrors that are nuclear energy. NEI's( Nuclear Energy Institute) lies about nuclear energy being carbon free have to be exposed, their incestous relationship with the NRC and DOE has to be brought into the light of day, the wrongful rubber stamping of license renewals ended before and American Chernobyl occurs.
Monday, March 2, 2009 Wall Street Journal Uses Racist Term in Call for Legalization of Pot? (8 comments)
Is Gringo a racist term used to describe white's from England and America? More importantly, is the Wall Street Journal calling for Legalization of Pot...Ms. O'Grady's article would seem to suggest so since there was no disclaimer that her article represented ONLY HER VIEWS.
Friday, February 20, 2009 Is Air Force One Becoming Obama's Mission Accomplished Albatross
Obama wants Americans to tighten their belts while he flies Air Force One to Chicago for Valentine's Night Dinner at a cost of $53,000 per hour. Today he flies to Denver in Air Force One at a cost of $53,000 when he could sign the bill in the Oval Office...is this what he calls BELT TIGHTENING?
It is time for the White House to LEAD BY EXAMPLE, and today's trip to Denver in Air Force One is a bad example.
Friday, October 31, 2008 Pro Life Sarah Palin Embraces Nuclear Abortion Machines in Toledo, Ohio
Pro Life Christian and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin today embraced building 45 new Nuclear Abortion Machines here in America. Nuclear energy increases various cancers here in America and around the world including childhood leukemia and breast cancers. Additionally, living near a reactor increases a woman's chances of giving birth to a stillborn child. Sarah Palin is fine with Nuclear Abortion for energy?
Saturday, October 18, 2008 What Will Happen if Obama Has Presidency Stolen From Him? (11 comments)
What happens if the Republicans again steal the Presidency as they did in 2000 and 2004? Could we see a civil are erupt in America? Could we see Bush or McCain ordering military troops into America's streets, and declaring Marshall Law? What do you see as consequences if the vote is stolen again by the Republicans?
Sunday, October 12, 2008 Open Message To Senator's Obama and McCain's Supporters (2 comments)
Can we as a nation afford all this political bickering and hostility when our nation is in crisis? Has the time come to put our differences aside, and stand shoulder to shoulder, ready to do the hard work necessary to save the United States of America?
Tuesday, September 30, 2008 The Wall Street Bailout From Perspective of One Middle Class American (1 comments)
The Wall Street Bailout did nothing for the Average American suffering under an oppressive regime. Read the views of one Middle Class American who has a better idea...lets bailout Main Street, lets put the horse before the cart, and in doing so put Corporate America and the National Chamber of Commerce in their rightful place. It's time for the average American to share in the wealth of America.
Friday, March 7, 2008 The Republican Family Values Candidate-John McCain? (3 comments)
McCain being the Family Values Party's nominee for president is so laughable it is pathetic. McCain had a torrid affair with his current wife while still married. His current wife had a drug addiction, was stealing drugs from her own charity. Her father is a convicted felon. Is this what the Republican Party feels is representing Family Values? Is getting a divorce from your crippled wife to marry a younger woman right?
Wednesday, March 5, 2008 Should Obama Withdraw From Race and Take Vice President Spot on Democratic Ticket?
Obama tonight got beaten, and beaten very badly. Simply stated, Hillary Clinton who was down and out has knocked Obama down, delivered a punch that has staggered by him and his staff. For the good of the party, for the good of America is it time that he end his race and become her Vice Presidential running mate?
Monday, February 11, 2008 Corporate Social Responsibility and Carbon Offsets (1 comments)
Carbon Offsets are the nucleus of a good idea if used in a socially responsible way to Green those communities that cannot afford to green themselves. Question is, are we as a society, are corporations willing to see the money raised from the sale of Corporate Offsets for such a noble cause as Greening the world's poorest communities, and nations?
Tuesday, November 20, 2007 Why The Nuclear Industry Is Pushing Carbon Trading
Without Carbon Trading, or at least Carbon Penalties, the nuclear industry and their Nuclear Renaissance cannot occur. Question is, should it occur.
What if there was a FAR GREENER option to choose?
Thursday, November 15, 2007 Norris McDonald: Nuclear Power's Black Voice
Norris McDonald is the self appointed Black Voice for the nuclear industry's hoped-for Nuclear Renaissance. He has spent time with George Bush in the White House, and according to one of his blogs, he is rumored to be involved with Condi Rice.

Sunday, November 4, 2007 Has Anti-nuke Rocker Congressman John Hall Sold His Soul To Nuclear Industry? (3 comments)
Anti Nuclear activist, 70's pop singer and member of Congress, John Hall shockingly votes in favor of an all Nuclear Navy.
John Hall gave us "Still The One" and with his comrades in the music industry, such as Bonnie Raitt and Jackson Browne, gave us the No Nukes concerts that are legendary in the Anti Nuclear movement.
So, imagine the shock at finding he vote for a bill that calls for a Nuclear Navy.
Friday, October 19, 2007 Killing the Nuclear Beast by Saying No
Kill the nuclear beast...say no to $50 Billion in loan guarantees, demand and end to the Price Anderson Act, and help those communities being forced to play host to dangerous aging reactors like Entergy's Indian Point.
People are being killed day in and day out as radiological contaminants find their way into our environment, and into our bodies. With a Nuclear Renaissance, your children could be next to die.
Saturday, October 6, 2007 Dale Klein Announces Coming of Fuel Cycle Renaissance-Be VERY AFRAID
NRC's Dale Klein and George Bush want to make America the worlds nuclear waste dumping site. The Nuclear Renaissance, and it's twisted sister the Fuel Cycle Renaissance are hideous monsters hidden behind the FALSE PROMISE that nuclear energy will save us from Global Warming. We as a nation have serious choices to make, and the time to make them is now, while we still have a choice in the matter. www.fuseusa.org
Tuesday, August 14, 2007 EPRI, NEI, NRC Inaction Killing Nuclear Workers? (1 comments)
EPRI, NEI, DOE and NRC too busy protecting nuclear industry profits to protect workers at failing reactor sites such as Entergy's Indian Point. Where is the Pipe Fitters Union demanding passage of the 10 CRR rule change that would lower worker REM exposures to 2 REM a year? Union workers deserve to know the truth, union workers deserve a 2 REM a year exposure limit. Act down to save lives by contacting the NRC.
Wednesday, August 8, 2007 EPRI-Exposing the Nuclear/Electric Industry Dark Tower of Secrets
As the nuclear industry tries to get America to buy into a Nuclear Renaissance, they need a place to hide the truths about the dangers of the industry. Seems they hide their HOT DOCUMENTS within the corporate confines of the EPRI (Electric Power Research Institute).
This articles starts the process of piercing the black veil that is the nuclear industry. Should documents partially paid for with our taxes be kept secret?
Thursday, August 2, 2007 Minnesota Bridge Collapse Could Have Been Nuclear Reactor
First, our prayers are with the people of Minnesota tonight as they grieve and deal with this tragedy. Secondly, the very fatigue and flawed inspection schedule that has claimed this bridge could just as easily be the death of any one of America's 104 failing ancient reactors. NRC routinely ignores serious safety concerns, setting aside regulations with a Generic Finding. Inspections are pushed back 5 years and more.
Wednesday, July 25, 2007 New York City Steam Pipe Explosion Should Be Nuclear Reactor Wake Up Call
Last weeks explosion of a Steam Pipe in New York City demonstrates the folly of relicensing America's 104 aging and failing nuclear reactors. Here in the Metro New York area, the health and safety of 21 million people is at risk with each day the failing Indian Point reactors continue to operate. We as citizens must stop the NRC from relicensing the trouble plagued Indian Point reactors for 20 more years before it is to late.
Tuesday, July 24, 2007 Entergy's Indian Point is Another Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Waiting To Happen...Stop The Nuclear Renaissance Now (1 comments)
The World Dodged another Chernobyl at the poorly managed,scandal ridden Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Nuclear Plant owned by TEPCO. Entergy's Indian Point sitting on an earthquake fault, located 24 miles from Manhattan on the Hudson River is a identical problem plagued plant waiting for a significant accident to occur. The time has come to pull the plug on the Nuclear Renaissance, admit that nuclear is neither green, nor safe.
Monday, July 23, 2007 Japanese Nuke Plant Dodges A Chernobyl Close Call, Now Wants Cover-Up
TEPCO and Japan dodged a Chernobyl like holocaust in the aftermath of last weeks devastating earthquake that did extensive damage to the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa reactor site now believed to sit atop a quake fault line. Now, to save the NEI's Nuclear Renaissance here in America, Japan and TEPCO have called in the IAEA to do a rubber stamp inspection, and quickly proclaim the reactors safe to return to operation, safety be damned.
Saturday, July 21, 2007 Toyota Electric Power Takes Devastating Hit- Reactors Could Be Closed For A Year Or More (3 comments)
As the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Nuclear Plant scandal grows, news sources including Reuters are saying the seven endangered reactors could be shut for at least one year. If reports of a quake line running right through the reactor site are correct, these seven unsafe and dangerous reactors may never start back up again, delivering a devasting blow to NEI's dream of a nuclear renaissance.
Wednesday, July 18, 2007 Japanese Earthquake Reactor Accident Worse Than Three Mile Island (3 comments)
