#NukeIsFake #TheBiggestLieEver This video is originally a supplemental audio file of a RAPT’s blog article titled, “Nuclear Power Plants and Nuclear Bombs do not Exist I.” For the original article, go to ⇨http://rapt-neo.com/?p=34519 and translate it to your language. The video shows the English translation of the first half of the audio file. [Background story] When the Fukushima Power Plants exploded due to the 311 earthquake, the entire country of Japan went into the panic mode. As if the massive destructions from the earthquake was not shocking enough, Japanese people had to live with the fear of getting diagnosed with cancer from radiation exposure. The entire nation was convinced to use minimum electricity and was willing to endure planned power outages. While some people were forced to move out of their beloved hometown due to the destruction by the tsunami, others voluntarily relocated from Tokyo area only to get away. Most Japanese have refused to buy produce from Fukushima for a long time because they are afraid of getting internal exposure to radiation. It was the Nuclear Scare. Four years after the double tragedy, a lot of people were left very confused about the impact of radioactivity on their health while being under the same fear. Why confused? Various Japanese TV programs broadcasted conflicting information about radiation safety from different specialists and university professors. Some said any exposure below 1mSv had no health impact. Some claimed there was no danger, and others insisted that anything below 10 mSv was safe. All of them are acclaimed specialists and seemed credible. Who are to believe? “What happened to people who had been exposed to radioactivity after the Chernobyl Disaster?” RAPT thought that he could find the real answer to the impact of radioactivity on health by answering this question. After all, the Chernobyl disaster and the Fukushima accidents are similar. The current state of the Chernobyl victims should give some reference for the future of the victims of the Fukushima accident. Interestingly, however, RAPT’s search for an answer to this innocuous question led to a series of surprising discoveries and new questions. In this recorded conversation, RAPT and his guest have come to the shocking conclusion that nuclear power plants and nuclear bombs do not exist. RAPT wrote a series of articles about his conclusion. This article, “Nuclear Power Plants and Nuclear Bombs do not Exist I” is the very first installment. Enjoy the mind-blowing revelations. Be free from the fear of radiation exposure for once and for all. This video is translated by しろくろ(@shirokuro2023) and edited by 千年王国(@Millenarianism). #NukeIsFake, #TheBiggestLieEver

This represented the first time in history that a nuclear plant had blown up so spectacularly and left the area around it devastated for decades and generations to come. While we know the causes of the April 1986 accident, we are still assessing and witnessing the results of this environmental catastrophe. Many people have passed away, other deal with various disabilities resulting from the radiation. The environment has been forever scarred. Even the nearby town of Pripyat has been forever changed. The disaster at Chernobyl has led to a range of strange and horrible side-effects that we are still dealing with today. Some you likely know about, but others have popped up that have researchers scratching their heads.

True Pyramids Purpose Has Been Finally Discovered
 
12:22
Many researchers thought that the Egyptian tombs were constructed to highlight the majesty pharaohs. And that's what we studied at school. Yeah, past tense! Brace yourselves, folks, because it looks as if scientists have finally discovered the true purpose of the pyramids! It seems these unique structures might have had a function that was a far cry from burying the dead... TIMESTAMPS: How the Great Pyramid of Giza is different from any other traditional tombs 1:22 Could the ancient Egyptians have had technologies as advanced as the modern ones? 2:57 The Great Pyramid's mysteries 4:20 What about the “sarcophagi”? 6:34 “The Queen's Chamber” beneath the Great Pyramid 7:27 What was the gold capstone at the top of the Great Pyramid used for 9:46 Could ancient Egyptians us wireless energy for communication purposes? 10:45 #greatpyramid #pyramidofgiza Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - The Great Pyramid of Giza was made with over 2 million stone blocks, each weighing from 3 to 30 tons. Actually, the most gigantic ones can be as heavy as 50 tons! The base of the Great Pyramid covers an area of 592,000 square feet, and each of its sides is about 218,000 square feet in size. - If you let go of the stereotype that ancient civilizations were less developed than we are today, a question arises: could the ancient Egyptians have had technologies as advanced as the modern ones? What if their knowledge was lost only to be rediscovered centuries later? - Interestingly enough, the Egyptians also used a special material, dolomite, on the inner sides of the pyramid. This mineral is known to multiply electrical conductivity. - Modern technology still can't recreate the gypsum-based mortar that was used during the construction of the pyramids. This kind of gypsum withstands huge amounts of pressure. So this may sound bizarre, but the mortar holding them together is, in fact, stronger than the blocks of the pyramid themselves. - In 1993, an inaccessible secret room was uncovered beneath the Great Pyramid. This room, which seemed to be deliberately concealed, was dubbed “The Queen's Chamber”. In 2011, thanks to more developed technologies, it became possible to explore the room with the help of a remote camera. - At the top of the Great Pyramid of Giza, there used to be a capstone made entirely of gold. It forwarded a path to transfer negative ions (those are atoms with an electrical charge) to the ionosphere (the layer of the earth’s atmosphere that contains a ton of said atoms). And that’s how an electric current of immense power was produced! - Another weird thing you can see in such carvings is what clearly looks like a wireless antenna. Perhaps the ancient Egyptians used wireless energy for communication purposes? They very well could’ve used electricity at weaving plants to manufacture yarn.

How Nuclear Power Saves Lives

The Fukushima disaster reignited the nuclear power debate, but it turns out, even with its faults, nuclear power is saving lives! That's according to new NASA study about the effects of pollution on health. So just how many lives are being saved, and why? Trace has the answers. Read More: "Prevented mortality and greenhouse gas emissions from historical and projected nuclear power" http://pubs.acs.org/doi/pdf/10.1021/es3051197 "Using historical production data, we calculate that global nuclear power has prevented about 1.84 million air pollution-related deaths and 64 gigatonnes (Gt) CO2-equivalent greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that would have resulted from fossil fuel burning."

Heads Up! Hackers Breached A Dozen US Nuclear Plants
 
02:39
Hackers breached at least a dozen US power plants in attacks in May and June, US media report, citing intelligence officials. The targets included the Wolf Creek nuclear facility in Kansas, according to several reports. An urgent Department of Homeland Security (DHS) report indicated a foreign power, possibly Russia, was responsible, the New York Times said. The DHS document carried the second-highest threat rating, the Times said. Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Corp declined to say if the plant was hacked but said there had been "no operational impact" at the plant.

America's Deteriorating Nuclear Infrastructure, Three Mile Island Plant to Close In 2019
 
06:33
Exelon Corp.’s Three Mile Island atomic power plant, site of the worst U.S. commercial nuclear accident in 1979, will close in 2019 after losing money for five years. The Pennsylvania plant, with one reactor still in operation, has lost revenue as power prices fell, Chicago-based Exelon said Tuesday in a filing. For the third consecutive year, the plant failed to win generating capacity payments last week in an auction held by PJM Interconnection LLC, the largest U.S. power market. Meanwhile, the generator has failed to win government subsidies or market reforms to enhance its viability, Exelon said. The announcement underscores challenges facing U.S. nuclear power generators from plants burning cheap natural gas and rising output of wind and solar power. At least five nuclear power plants have retired in the past five years including Fort Calhoun in Nebraska, which closed in October. Entergy Corp. in December announced plans to close its Palisades plant in Michigan.

ShineHub Virtual Power Plant Demo
 
03:08
Virtual Power Plants are an essential part of the transition to 100% renewable energy because it allows home batteries to support the community when needed. But the upfront cost of adding a $1,000 piece of hardware to your battery system has prevented most people from getting on board. So we decided to fix that and make a free downloadable app that connects your battery to virtual power plants online - without the need for extra and expensive hardware. This demo is showing how it works with our solar and battery system that we have in the ShineHub office. When we click the button on the web dashboard, the battery sends power back to the grid within seconds. Now that's what I call #fairdinkumenergy!

Exploring the Remains of Six Flags Power Plant Theme Park - Baltimore, MD - 8/2017
 
08:05
Prompted by an incredible series of articles by Josh Young on ThemeParkUniversity.com, Monika and I decided to explore the remains of Six Flags Power Plant, a theme park that opened in Baltimore, Maryland in late-July 1985. Due to a series of massive blunders on the part of Six Flags, the park was never successful. In January 1987 the park shut down and was turned into a Six Flags-run nightclub complex (P.T. Flagg's), which was also unsuccessful. In 1990 the city kicked Six Flags out of the building for good, at which point it sat vacant for years. In 1997 it was finally bought by the Cordish Company and remodeled to include the Hard Rock Cafe, Barnes and Noble, and ESPN Zone (now Phillip's Seafood). I visited Six Flags Power Plant at least twice as a kid and have very fond memories of it. Unfortunately, not much remains from this ill-fated park (which, even though it was branded as a Six Flags park, had zero actual rides!). The exterior of the building remains mostly the same, but if you didn't know any better, there would be no way to tell that this complex once housed a 4D theater, an animatronic show, two Pepper's Ghost-filled walk-thrus (similar to Rolly Crump's never-built Museum of the Weird), and a bunch of shops and restaurants, all designed by ex-Disney Imagineers!

Advantages and Disadvantages of Nuclear Energy You Never Knew About
 
05:40
A large amount of energy generated, no pollution, green energy; seems like a perfect choice? But wait till you know its disadvantages. While, we cannot ignore the fact that we have a large stock of Uranium for generating nuclear energy, we should not forget that it is exhaustible. While fuel independence and no pollution are the pros of nuclear energy, radiation, nuclear waste and a high building cost are its cons. So, let's be a part of the debate and find out what exactly nuclear energy turns out to be, a boon or a bane.

As it is typical of thermal power stations, heat is used to generate steam that drives a steam turbine connected to a generator that produces electricity. As of 23 April 2014, the IAEA report there are 450 nuclear power reactors in operation operating in 31 countries.Nuclear plants are usually considered to be base load stations since fuel is a small part of the cost of production and because they cannot be easily or quickly dispatched. Their operations and maintenance (O&M) and fuel costs are, along with hydropower stations, at the low end of the spectrum and make them suitable as base-load power suppliers. The cost of spent fuel management, however, is somewhat uncertain.

Top 10 Ridiculous Theories About the Ancient Pyramids of Giza
 
12:45
The ancient pyramids at Giza have long been one of the wonders of the ancient world, and have captured imaginations for thousands of years. Even today, they would have been quite difficult to construct, and the incredible treasures found within, as well as the strange traditions of those who built them, has only added fuel to all of the speculation about them. While most Egyptologists believe that the Pyramids were originally meant as burial chambers and built using clever but primitive methods, many theorists disagree and have come up with their own ideas on what they were actually used for, and how they were actually built. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 Help us translate our videos: https://www.youtube.com/timedtext_cs_queue?msg=10&tab=0 - Learn more why you might want to help: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6052538 Find more lists at: http://www.toptenz.net Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

The inherited issues after the war in Kosovo and the transition period have had an immense effect on the progress of this sector. Regulation of activities in energy sector in Kosovo is a responsibility of the Energy Regulatory Office (ERO). An additional factor in the energy sector in Kosovo is Ministry of Economic Development(MZHE), which has the responsibility of dealing with issues that have to do with energy. MZHE prepares legislation and drafts strategies and projects.

Google Hangout with one of the most articulate and passionate advocates of citizen action to remedy the nuclear and environmental crises: Dr Helen Caldicott. Got any questions about our planet's nuclear future, chances of Fukushima issue being tackled and pros and cons of the nuclear energy? Come and ask Helen Caldicott, who the Smithsonian calls one of the most influential women of the 20th century, at a Google+ Hangout. In one of her recent articles on RT.com, Helen Caldicott wrote: "As I contemplate the future at Fukushima, it seems that the escape of radiation is virtually unstoppable. The levels of radiation in buildings 1, 2 and 3 are now so high that no human can enter or get close to the molten cores. It will therefore be impossible to remove these cores for hundreds of years if ever." She believes that one of the steps Japanese government should take to prevent worst case consequences is to cancel the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= Nuclear power is the fifth-largest source of electricity in India after coal, gas, hydroelectricity and wind power. As of March 2018, India has 22 nuclear reactors in operation in 7 nuclear power plants, having a total installed capacity of 6,780 MW. Nuclear power produced a total of 35 TWh and supplied 3.22 per cent of Indian electricity in 2017. 6 more reactors are under construction with a combined generation capacity of 4,300 MW. In October 2010, India drew up a plan to reach a nuclear power capacity of 63 GW in 2032, but after the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan people around proposed Indian nuclear power plant sites have launched protests, raising questions about atomic energy as a clean and safe alternative to fossil fuels. There have been mass protests against the French-backed 9,900 MW Jaitapur Nuclear Power Project in Maharashtra and the Russian-backed 2,000 MW Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant in Tamil Nadu. The state government of West Bengal, has also refused permission to a proposed 6,000 MW facility near the town of Haripur that intended to host six Russian reactors. A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has also been filed against the government’s civil nuclear programme at the Supreme Court.The capacity factor of Indian reactors was at 79% in the year 2011-12 compared to 71% in 2010-11. Nine out of twenty Indian reactors recorded 97% capacity factor during 2011-12. With the imported uranium from France, the 220 MW Kakrapar 2 PHWR reactors recorded 99% capacity factor during 2011-12. The Availability factor for the year 2011-12 was at 89%. India has been making advances in the field of thorium-based fuels, working to design and develop a prototype for an atomic reactor using thorium and low-enriched uranium, a key part of India's three stage nuclear power programme. The country has also recently re-initiated its involvement in the LENR research activities, in addition to supporting work done in the fusion power area through the ITER initiative.

Greenpeace and Western media are going haywire right now in various of their articles, they are mad that Russia doesnt buy their cheap plastic solar panels imo (who are cheaper in China now too) but instead invests into the future, into Atom technology. This floating Nuclear powered icebreaker Akademik Lomonosov will be able to provide energy to arctic towns and outposts at the same time as being an icebreaker, a hybrid and the first of its kind. And why is Greenpeace never complaining about Nuclear powered US Aircraft Carriers when those are always finished?

This Decaying Building Off The Coast Of Florida Could Have Caused Untold Death
 
06:30
Subscribe to our channel: https://goo.gl/Z4nZcg Please do not forget to visit the site http://scribol.com ************************************************************** Back in the mid-1970s, when the Cold War was in full swing, the Soviet Union and Cuba – two communist leading lights – designed something that could have caused untold devastation. Located around 90 miles from Florida, this thing wasn’t only terrifying, but also, for many in the United States, it was deliberately provocative. However, it was never finished, and perhaps that’s just as well. The structure in question was the huge Juragua Nuclear Power Plant, which was an 880-megawatt dual-reactor facility that was given the go-ahead in 1976. It was to be built on southern Cuba’s Caribbean shores – a location just half an hour’s flying time from the United States – and funded by the Soviet Union’s financial clout. ----------------------------------------------------------- ►Article link:https://goo.gl/Vs7Zy5 ----------------------------------------------------------- So when the U.S. government caught wind of the plans, it was understandably alarmed. After all, the nuclear facility would be big enough to provide power for 15 percent of Cuba’s population. And if something were to go wrong, then its proximity to Florida represented a potential national security risk to the United States. It wasn’t until 1983, however, that construction of the Juragua Nuclear Power Plant began – with the laying of foundations and the building of a grand turbine hall. And while progress proved to be painfully slow, this had nothing to do with a lack of money. ************************************************************** ►You can support the channel: PATREON https://goo.gl/KtaKrp ►Image credits: Darmon Richter/The Bohemian Blog https://goo.gl/HO3Vxd ►web: http://watchjojo.com ► SUBSCRIBE US: https://goo.gl/Z4nZcg *Thank you :Robin Lewis ► Follow Us On Google Plus: https://goo.gl/JYf9Rr ► Like us Our Facebook Page: https://goo.gl/C5Rv92 ► Follow On Twitter: https://goo.gl/PZ2U1R ►For more articles visit: http://scribol.com #watchjojo

Nuclear power can be obtained from nuclear fission, nuclear decay and nuclear fusion. Presently, the vast majority of electricity from nuclear power is produced by nuclear fission of uranium and plutonium. Nuclear decay processes are used in niche applications such as radioisotope thermoelectric generators. The possibility of generating electricity from nuclear fusion is still at a research phase with no commercial applications. This article mostly deals with nuclear fission power for electricity generation. Nuclear power is one of the leading low carbon power generation methods of producing electricity. In terms of total life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions per unit of energy generated, nuclear power has emission values comparable or lower than renewable energy. From the beginning of its commercialization in the 1970s, nuclear power prevented about 1.84 million air pollution-related deaths and the emission of about 64 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent that would have otherwise resulted from the burning of fossil fuels in thermal power stations.Civilian nuclear power supplied 2,488 terawatt hours (TWh) of electricity in 2017, equivalent to about 10% of global electricity generation. As of April 2018, there are 449 civilian fission reactors in the world, with a combined electrical capacity of 394 gigawatt (GW). Additionally, there are 58 reactors under construction and 154 reactors planned, with a combined capacity of 63 GW and 157 GW, respectively. Over 300 more reactors are proposed. Most of reactors under construction are of generation III reactor design, with the majority in Asia.There is a social debate about nuclear power. Proponents, such as the World Nuclear Association and Environmentalists for Nuclear Energy, contend that nuclear power is a safe, sustainable energy source that reduces carbon emissions. Opponents, such as Greenpeace and NIRS, contend that nuclear power poses many threats to people and the environment. Some accidents have occurred in nuclear power plants. These include the Chernobyl disaster in the Soviet Union in 1986, the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in Japan in 2011, and the more contained Three Mile Island accident in the United States in 1979. There have also been some nuclear submarine accidents. In terms of lives lost per unit of energy generated, nuclear reactors have caused the lowest number of fatalities per unit of energy generated when compared to the other major energy producing methods. Coal, petroleum, natural gas and hydroelectricity each have caused a greater number of fatalities per unit of energy, due to air pollution and accidents.

In 2015, hydropower generated 16.6% of the world's total electricity and 70% of all renewable electricity, and was expected to increase about 3.1% each year for the next 25 years. Hydropower is produced in 150 countries, with the Asia-Pacific region generating 33 percent of global hydropower in 2013. China is the largest hydroelectricity producer, with 920 TWh of production in 2013, representing 16.9 percent of domestic electricity use. The cost of hydroelectricity is relatively low, making it a competitive source of renewable electricity. The hydro station consumes no water, unlike coal or gas plants. The average cost of electricity from a hydro station larger than 10 megawatts is 3 to 5 U.S. cents per kilowatt-hour. With a dam and reservoir it is also a flexible source of electricity since the amount produced by the station can be changed up or down very quickly to adapt to changing energy demands. Once a hydroelectric complex is constructed, the project produces no direct waste, and in many cases, has a considerably lower output level of greenhouse gases than fossil fuel powered energy plants.

How nuclear plants "routine emissions" poison neighboring communities (Dr. Caldicott & Kay Drey)
 
58:21
sowingthewinds 30.05.2012 Two great women: Anti-nuke activists! Will human listen and realize that we are all responsible and we all have a duty to stop nuclear industry and the governments who are endorsing this war against our freedom and right to live by Nature's laws? http://ifyoulovethisplanet.org/?p=6078 

Dr. Caldicott's website:
http://ifyoulovethisplanet.org 

Dr. Caldicott interviews Kay Drey, a board member of Beyond Nuclear http://www.beyondnuclear.org/ . Drey is also a board member of the Great Rivers Environmental Law Center http://www.greatriverslaw.org/ . For nearly 40 years, she has researched the dangers of nuclear energy and nuclear waste, and advocated for the closure of nuclear plants and other uranium facilities. She was quite active in civil rights work before focusing on nuclear power. Drey and Dr. Caldicott discuss the widespread public health implications of so-called routine radiactive releases from nuclear power stations, in which many hazardous gases and fission byproducts are emitted during daily operations. Drey refers to a Beyond Nuclear pamphlet, Dirty, Dangerous and Expensive: The Truth is In About Nuclear Power. For more information, read Dr. Caldicott's book "Nuclear Power is Not the Answer" http://thenewpress.com/index.php?option=com_title&task=view_title&met... which includes information from Drey's studies.

How are the activities of those who design and operate nuclear reactors as well as nuclear storage facilities in any way private? How are the operations of companies extracting oil from, say, the Gulf of Mexico or the Tar Sands of Alberta, in any way private? What is private about the assaults on ecology and public health that have been shown to occur regularly and on a massive scale in the industrial transformation of matter into energy? Who is supposed to pay for the clean up when supposedly-private corporations mess up? Who is to be held liable in societies where the for-profit corporations have been legally structured around the concept of limited liability?

Diablo Canyon: ASTONISHING NUCLEAR SAFETY "Concerns"
 
20:33
Dr. Sam Blakeslee, a Phd. geophysicist, former Republican California state senator, and former commissioner, California Seismic Safety Commission is advocating an immediate seismic safety investigation of PG&E's Diablo Canyon nuclear plant near San Luis Obispo, CA. In Dec. 3, 2014 testimony before Senator Barbara Boxer's Committee on Environment and Public Works, Blakeslee - who is emphatically NOT 'anti-nuclear' - denounced the fact that as new discoveries of potential earthquake dangers have increased, PG&E's standards for seismic safety have gone down. It is now known that Diablo sits atop 13 intersecting active earthquake faults in a tsunami zone similar to Fukushima. The plant was not designed to withstand the level of shaking this network of active faults is capable of delivering. A Senior NRC Inspector has called for the plant's shutdown for being out of compliance with seismic safety standards. Yet, PG&E is pushing to extend the plant's operating license without retro-fitting or safety assessment. Sen. Blakeslee is calling for an immediate NRC re-licensing hearing. original upload here called Republican Calls for Diablo Safety Probe : http://youtu.be/N3mar-2eWlo SD-406 Diablo Canyon Nulcear SAFETY Probe after "Lessons Learned from Fukushima" Around 2:30 minutes...

10 Facts About Nuclear Energy - Fun Fact Series EP38 | Educational Videos by Mocomi
 
01:58
http://mocomi.com/ presents: Nuclear Energy - Fun Fact Series EP38 Nuclear energy is the energy amassed in the nucleus of an atom. Nuclear energy is liberated when a nucleus splits apart (fission) or fuses with another (fusion). Nuclear power uses fission to generate heat and electricity. The United States, Japan and France are the largest producers of nuclear power. Nuclear power provides more than 14% of the world’s electricity. Till date only two nuclear weapons have been used as part of warfare, one in Hiroshima and the other in Nagasaki. The Sun produces a huge amount of energy from its nuclear reactions that convert hydrogen into helium. So far, there have been three big nuclear power plant disasters: the Three Mile Island accident (1979), the Chernobyl disaster (1986), and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster (2011). Research suggests that a person receives five times as much radiation in a lifetime by sitting in front of the television or computer, as he or she would from residing near a nuclear power station. Nuclear medicine uses radioactive isotopes to diagnose, and treat diseases. Doctors use radiotherapy to treat many medical conditions, especially cancer. During the Middle Ages, craftspeople used Uranium, today’s nuclear fuel, to colour glass yellow or green.
