Fukushima and the nuclear fission mistake

The Fukushima incident is getting more and more creepy since there’s not much coming out in mainstream media. On other media channels however there’s much to debate. What is real information and what is hearsay?

What we know for certain is that the situation in Japan is far from over. Daily, workers are pumping radioactive water into containers which according to some sources are fragile and constantly leaking. Same sources say that duct tape is used to repair them. And how much contaminated water that reaches the ocean no one really knows.

Still the debate regarding nuclear power plants isn’t useful in any way. There are currently around 12 countries that has decided to phase out nuclear power and some 15 countries that opposes it. But there are many voices promoting nuclear power as a safe and environmentally friendly alternative.

Planet Earth
The planet we live on has seventeen tectonic plates always in motion. This motion causes cracks which allows magma to reach the planets surface – volcanoes. These plates also collides and creates friction which leads to earthquakes.

THIS IS THE REALITY we live in. We will ALWAYS have volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and tsunamis of different magnitude. And this is partially why it NEVER will be safe with nuclear power plants.

– But hey, there are places on earth not affected by this where the tectonic plates are stable!

Yes, that is true but there is never going to be such a thing as a SAFE nuclear power plant. We have the HUMAN FACTOR which was regarded to be one of the key factors in the Three mile island incident in 1979. There is also chance of mechanical failure and other structural and building material issues.

Since humans have a hard time learning that wars never will solve anything there is also quite possible that warmongers target nuclear power plants and creates disasters that way.

A so called ”kill shot” from the sun is also a possible scenario. What happens if the electric grid goes down? All power plants has secondary power sources to keep pumps going for coolant water, but for how long?

The discovery of nuclear fission
We celebrate the discovery of nuclear fission and scientists responsible are held high and respected. And maybe they should be celebrated? But we should celebrate them for concluding that nuclear fission is to dangerous to handle. Where is that conclusion?

The discovery of splitting the atom is not a sign of a highly advanced civilization, it is a sign that humans are not that bright and that risk management is something we as a species might have to look at closer.

Einstein allegedly once said ”nuclear fission is a hell of a way to boil water”.

Suppression of new energy technology
Exxon Mobile is the biggest company in the world. And there’s no reason to they not trying to stay in that position. They will do anything within their reach to stop initiatives taken that in someway threatens their business. It is what companies do.

Nikola Tesla wanted to provide humanity with radiant energy. Energy that couldn’t be metered. This means free energy and there would be no reason to put up an electric grid. J.P. Morgan shut him down effectively and Tesla never got the credit he should have been given for his discoveries. In fact, when I went to school my teacher told med that Tesla was a genius who became insane. I’m sure my teacher isn’t the only teacher who has said that.

Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann shocked the world in 1989 when they claimed the discovery of cold fusion. The establishment along with mainstream media stated that experiments conducted by Pons/Fleischmann couldn’t be replicated in other laboratories which was later proven a false statement. Today there are several companies trying hard to get working cold fusion/LENR plants on the market.

There are many other examples of promising initiatives regarding new ways to produce energy that has been ridiculed and shut down by the establishment.

Economy and lifestyle
Many voices are heard saying that we can’t replace fossil fuel or nuclear power without seriously harming economy and affecting our way of living. We are used to always have unlimited electric power right out of a hole in the wall.

Other say that free energy would destroy the worlds economy. Everything would collapse and geopolitical power would shift drastically.

YES! That would probably happen in some way. And we would most certainly have to adapt and possibly use energy in a more moderate way while researching new energy technology. But the risk of facing another meltdown and the consequences for the world MUST be worth that. It is INSANE to keep ANY nuclear facility on this planet! Insane…

Research and Development must be focused on finding alternatives to what is produced today and this must not stop until we are there. There are thousands of independent researchers all over the world with promising results in the fields of:

– Zero point energy (energy from the vacuum)
– Magnetic motors
– Fuel from water (efficient electrolysis)
– Cold Fusion
– Vortex Technologies
And many other fields of interest…

Scientists tend to disregard efforts taken in many of these fields since it doesn’t fit within existing proven models. Why not have a different approach?

Why not say ”Hey, that initiative is different! It doesn’t sound probable to me but go for it!”

Most of these independent researchers fund their own experiments and just a small contribution or access to advanced equipment would boost many empiric efforts. We have to change our approach to alternative initiatives!

What we know will never lead to what we seek to know. What we found was the result of that we didn’t investigate. And that is what we needed to know!

One thought on “Fukushima and the nuclear fission mistake

  1. I certainly agree that fission is not the ideal solution but it needs to be seen in the context of the alternatives. Yes, we should put more efforts into researching the options you mention but right now they do not work and can therefore be disregarded. They are options in a different discussion about where to use research funds and I have a feeling we may have similar opinions in that respect.

    But in the question about current energy options they are not relevant. So what are the options to fission? Solar? Hydro? Wind? Oil? Coal? Gas? They all have their pros and cons and effect on the environment. The environmental effects using oil, coal and gas are obvious. Solar energy is by far the best option are it doesn’t have a noticable impact (as far as we know). Unfortunately it is a bit too inefficient (can that be improved?) and yes, a bit too expensive. Hydro is a brilliant form of energy but it changes landscapes and habitats. In addition, suitable rivers are scarce so it’s not a universal solition. Tidal or wave energy are other hydro options but they are not very mature. Wind is technically also good but depends on weather conditions and generally meet resistance because they look ugly and are noisy.

    Like it or not, but fission has proven one of the better options in terms of efficiency and the impact due to accidents is generally far less then fuels such as coal or oil in the scheme of things. Fission ”may” cause environmental problems. For oil and coal we know for sure they cause problems . But either way, fission It far from ideal due to it’s waste and risk so it’s not a long term solution. We both agree that something better needs to be invented and that the powerful energy companies that seems to block such attempts as much as they can needs to be fought.

    But until that is accomplished, fission is not the worst choice. Obviously a fission reactor should not be allowed enywhere close to the edge of a tectonic plate. The problem is that a country like Japan doesn’t have much choice. But if we’d like to prohibit them from bulding their powerplants in Japan we might want to offer them an alternative. Energy generation would need to be an international effort in that case, where Japan would be able to generate their power in a location more suitable for it.

    An international effort may very well be of good for other reasons as well. How about adding energy (and water for that matter) to the UN list of human rights? A joint global effort in finding alternatives would a way forward. Yes, I know it’s not going to happen, but anyway…
