The Politics of Nuclear Energy
I hope this fits HHD...

Dismantling nuclear plants is a gold mine for some, but at what risk to you?

The nuclear power industry is shrinking by the day.

Some 20 reactors at 15 power plants across the U.S. have plans to shut down or are in the midst of being decommissioned, a process that traditionally takes decades.

Now, a new crop of companies — fed by Wall Street speculators — are claiming they can cut that time to at least eight years, as they eye the $60 billion set aside in trust funds to handle the messy work of shutting down nuclear reactors.

Two firms, Holtec International of Camden, New Jersey, and its rival, New York-based NorthStar Group Services, together with their partners, have been on a buying spree in recent years, snatching up power plants across the nation with the promise of quicker teardowns.

What's that smell?? Oh it's just nuclear..

“The U.A.E. has to build up a domestic pool of experts in many areas to keep these plants running smoothly and efficiently,” Hibbs said. “That won’t be trivial because when this project got underway virtually all of the expertise was imported from outside.”

A government-sponsored training program has produced 380 Emirati nuclear experts, and 60% of ENEC’s staff are U.A.E. citizens, according to the company.

Oh look there's Mickey Mouse.....

“Barakah was meant to be the showcase for the international nuclear industry,” said Mycle Schneider, an independent analyst. “Grid connection is at least three years late, and there is no doubt that it is way over budget.”

Schneider questions the regional nuclear push. “Nuclear power is now clearly the most expensive form of electricity generation,” the analyst said. While the cost of solar photo-voltaic power on a utility scale has plunged 90% over the past decade, nuclear power costs have risen by 26%, Schneider said.

Prove it ! .........Last year, the Moscow Mayor’s Office was warned by the Russian branch of Greenpeace about the threat of radiation during the construction of the South-East Chord. Environmentalists said that during the works, contaminated soil could get on the surface, and radioactive dust could be spread over considerable distances. This will cause significant harm to the health of Muscovites — in particular, it will dramatically increase the risk of cancer.

Quote:• May 2017: Lawmakers in the Ohio House and Senate introduced several bills in 2017 to create a “Zero-Emissions Nuclear Resource Program,” including a rider on electric customers’ bills. In testimony on one of those bills, Jones told an Ohio Senate panel that FirstEnergy’s two Ohio nuclear plants, Davis-Besse near Toledo and Perry east of Cleveland, could be forced to close without a subsidy.  The three bills did not move out of their respective chambers during the 2017-18 session.

• April 2018: Republican House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger abruptly resigns amid an FBI investigation. Householder and then-Rep. Ryan Smith, R-Bidwell, jockey for support to take the Speaker’s seat.

• May 2018: More than 10 candidates supportive of Householder win their primaries over Republicans who were supportive of Smith.

• June 2018: Smith is elected Speaker following an unprecedented 11 rounds of voting before he received the needed support.
