Nuclear Regulatory Commission Suspends New Licenses, Renewals

- Common Dreams staff:

Acknowledging the problem of nuclear waste disposal, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) ordered a hold on issuing new nuclear plant licenses or license renewals on Tuesday, a decision cheered by environmental groups.

Tuesday’s announcement comes in response to a June 8 decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit that found “the NRC violated the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) in issuing its 2010 update to the Waste Confidence Decision and accompanying Temporary Storage Rule,” Reuters reports. More specifically, the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy explains that “the Court threw out the NRC rule that permitted licensing and re-licensing of nuclear reactors based on the supposition that (a) the NRC will find a way to dispose of spent reactor fuel to be generated by reactors at some time in the future when it becomes ‘necessary’ and (b) in the mean time, spent fuel can be stored safely at reactor sites.”

The NRC writes in its order (pdf): “Waste confidence undergirds certain agency licensing decisions, in particular new reactor licensing and reactor license renewal. Because of the recent court ruling striking down our current waste confidence provisions, we are now considering all available options for resolving the waste confidence issue, which could include generic or site-specific NRC actions, or some combination of both. We have not yet determined a course of action. But, in recognition of our duties under the law, we will not issue licenses dependent upon the Waste Confidence Decision or the Temporary Storage Rule until the court’s remand is appropriately addressed.”

On June 18, two dozen groups including Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, Friends of the Earth, Nuclear Information and Resource Service and Public Citizen urged the NRC to suspend new and renewed licenses.

Diane Curran, an attorney representing some of the groups in the Court of Appeals case, welcomed the decision but admonished the NRC for dragging its feet on doing an environmental impact study of waste storage. “This Commission decision halts all final licensing decisions — but not the licensing proceedings themselves — until NRC completes a thorough study of the environmental impacts of storing and disposing of spent nuclear fuel. That study should have been done years ago, but NRC just kept kicking the can down the road,” said Curran.

Stephen Smith, executive director of Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, petitioner to the Court, said: “We’re pleased with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s ruling; it is long overdue. Nuclear power is not a clean generating source when it creates long-lived radioactive and toxic waste that has no long-term safe disposal technology in place. We believe it is appropriate to halt nuclear licensing decisions and stop creating an inter-generational debt of nuclear waste that will burden our children and grandchildren for centuries to come.”

Despite the ongoing Fukushima nuclear disaster and widespread global resistance to nuclear energy, the NRC will still move forward with licensing reviews and proceedings.Nuclear Regulatory Commission Suspends New Licenses, Renewals | Common Dreams.

Join Our Censorship Protest! Citizen’s Against SOPA and PIPA

Love ? I love love love you.

LOVE and Light

Well, here is another attempt of the Shadow Government trying to stop the awakening of Humanity.  Unfortunately, we have already tipped the scales into the higher vibration.  It is evident that this has forced the 1%, the Secret Societies, the people with money, and the Government to speed up their time tables.  They cannot break us, they cannot take our Spirit any longer, for WE are too numerous to fail.  We are LOVE, Truth, and connected to One another in a way NO politician can break apart.  WE are ONE in the Light and in LOVE.

Spread the word, oppose SOPA and PIPA and ALL the New World Order has to offer us.  They are the deceivers of Truth, Justice, and the Human condition; and they FEAR us MORE than we fear them.  So spread the word, share the truth, and stand strong in knowing that we WILL continue on through our chosen destinies and the Universe will provide for those of us, whom understand the meaning of empathy and Love.  We Live for our Freedom and our Independence.  Follow your heart and remember we are ALL in this together.  What does NOT affect you today, may Tomorrow and we should be prepared for ALL that is to come.

I for One revel in the fact that the NWO will have NO place in the dimensional shift taking place, and ALL that cannot attune themselves with the vibratory frequencies of LOVE and Light for ALL of Humanity (they know who they are), will be sent back to the darkness from which they came . . . NEVER to be heard of again.

LOVE and Light in this Amazing Time, and continue to transmute the negative energies instilled by the dark ones; they have NO where to go but down.

Join Our Censorship Protest!. OPPOSE SOPA and PIPA Today!

For your personal Astrological forecast durning this amazing time, visit me at Birth Charts HQ for your FULL interpretation!  Our Transit Chart will tell of the energies to expect in the upcoming shift!  See you there!

Gardasil Against OUR Children?

I don’t usually do this; however, I feel this is a subject that deserves some Light.  In California, they just passed a law in California, where it is OK for children–boys and girls over age of twelve–to agree to the Gardasil Vaccination without the consent of their parents.  They won’t even take them to the zoo without a permission slip, but to shoot them up with unnecessary medication, perfectly FINE!  Well, I AM here to say that it ISN’T!  There are 22,000 reported case of problems with this vaccine, from Autism to seizures, cancers, and convulsions.  1 in 4 reported cases, and the Government officials say differently.

Doctors are NOT known to stand out against the medical field, it is known to get them ostracized and labeled a quack.  For SO many Doctors to speak out, I know after dealing with them a majority of my life, and the mistakes allowed to cover their asses, their MUST be a validity to what is being stated.  DO the research, DON’T believe EVERYthing you hear or read; BUT don’t take One doctor’s word for it either.  Children are NOT informed enough to make decisions, and it is stepping on the role of the family to imply as such!

Following are two videos, watch and OPEN your eyes, before its too late!  Become informed and DON’T believe EVERYthing until you do your own research, it is worth the time to save the LIVES of our children!  LOVE and Light in ALL you do . . . and EVEN more LOVE to the people who have already suffered at the hands of the New World Order . . . .
