TSUNAMI MAP(CHILE)

. . . . .FEB 27-2010 EARTHQUAKE CHILE PACIFIC OCEAN REGION MAP(TSUNAMI TRAVEL TIME)
. . . .MY OPINION . ..CHAIN REACTION OF MULTIPLE EVENTS THAT CULMINATED IN THIS QUAKE . . ..YES I KNOW THAT 2 UNDERGROUND PLATES HAVE COLLIDED IS THE POPULAR THEORY BUT A MORE PROBABLE REASON FOR THE EARTH UPHEAVAL IS A GIGANTIC BREAK OFF ON THE ANTARCTIC PENINSULA OF A 1000,000,000,000 TONNE ICEBERG WITHIN THE PAST FEW DAYS WHICH IN TURN WAS TRIGGERED BY EARTHS CLIMATE WARMING TREND. . .THE STABILITY OF THE EARTH WOULD ALSO HAVE AFFECTED THE EARTHQUAKE IN OKINAWA JAPAN AT ABOUT THE SAME TIME INTERVAL.

NUCLEAR + WATER

Nuclear power plants—which must draw water from seas, rivers, lakes, or reservoirs to cool their reactors—are logically situated near water, putting them in the path of sea level rise and storm surges, Paskal said.

Flooding has already affected production in some plants in the U.S., France, and India. For instance, in 1992 Hurricane Andrew caused major damage to the Turkey Point nuclear power plant on Biscayne Bay, Florida.

But perhaps more troubling for nuclear facilities are heat waves, which will be commonplace in Europe by 2040—well within the life spans of reactors now coming online, according to the Met Office Hadley Centre, a climate-research facility in the U.K.

In a normal scenario, as cold water from nearby water bodies enters the plant, it's circulated to absorb excess heat and released from the plant at a higher temperature, Paskal said.

But during a heat wave, hotter air warms the water even before it goes into the plant. So when the waste water is pumped back into the en…

NUCLEAR AIN'T THE ANSWER

THE QUESTION OF CLEAN GREEN ENERGY COMES UP WHEN THINKING ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT BUT "nuclear ain't the answer" . . .more and more thinking people realize the many pitfalls of nuclear power such as high cost,major safety issues,proliferation risks,tritium leaks from nuclear reactors into drinking water,co2 emissions from uranium mines(vital part of nuclear) ,expensive time consuming decomissioning,unreliability, radioactive waste and constant taxpayer funded bailouts from weak minded and mis informed governments . . . .JUST SAY NO . . .TO NUCLEAR . . . .NOTE: MEDICAL ISOTOPES CAN BE MADE WITH NON NUCLEAR TECHNOLOGY AT A FRACTION OF THE COST.

Building Trades say nuclear plant construction means jobs
21 February 2010 WASHINGTON - For the nation’s construction unions, President Barack Obama’s announcement of $8.3 billion in federal loan guarantees to speed the construction of a new nuclear power plant in Georgia means one thing: Jobs.
And that’s why both AFL-CIO Building Trades Department President Mark Ayers and Plumbers and Pipefitters President William Hite were enthusiastic about Obama’s Feb. 17 announcement, made at the Electrical Workers Local 26 hall in Lanham, Md.
. . . .ITS UNFORTUNATE THAT THE UNIONS CAN BE SO MIS INFORMED ABOUT THEIR CONTRIBUTION TO GLOBAL WARMING..MOST OF MY LIFE I WAS A STRONG BELIEVER IN UNION PRINCIPLES...NOT ANY MORE IF THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF UNION THINKING...FOR INSTANCE "JOBS"IN THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY ARE VERY HIGH PAYING BUT THESE JOBS ARE DESTROYING OUR PLANETS ENVIRONMENT. . .IT IS OBVIOUS FROM THE ABOVE NEWS CLIP THAT UNIONS CARE MORE ABOUT FAT…

CLIMATE CRISIS

. . . .JUST ONE LOOK AT THE GRAPH IN THE PHOTO WILL SHOW HOW THE TREND OF INCREASING CO2 IN THE WORLD HAS CLIMBED IN RECENT YEARS CO2 ACCUMULATION IN THE ATMOSPHERE IS NOW 388.63 PARTS OF CARBON DIOXIDE(GREENHOUSE GAS) PER MILLION PARTS OF AIR MOLECULES...FOR A SAFE STABLE EARTH CLIMATE THIS NUMBER HAS TO BE REDUCED TO 350PPM....WHAT 2 DO ? DON'T BUY A CAR...DON'T EAT MEAT...REDUCE ELECTRIC USE AND WASTE. . . DON'T TRAVEL BY AIRLINE...REDUCE CONSUMER SPENDING. . .REFUSE PLASTIC BAGS FROM GROCERY STORES...PLANT A GARDEN...GROW UR OWN FOOD..BECOME VEGAN OR VEGETARIAN. . .THIS POST IS PROVIDED AS A PUBLIC SERVICE.

REPORT COPENHAGEN

AFTER VIEWING A REPORT ON http://www.usclimatenetwork.org WEBSITE I FIND THAT THE REALLY BAD POLLUTERS OF CO2 IS USA,CHINA,INDONESIA,EUROPEAN UNION,BRAZIL,CANADA,AUSTRALIA,INDIA,JAPAN .. . .MANY COUNTRIES HAVE PROMISED(?) TO CUT THEIR POLLUTION LEVELS BUT SOME COUNTRIES INCLUDING CANADA WILL ACTUALLY INCREASE CO2 EMMISIONS . . .USA WILL DECREASE SLIGHTLY BUT COUNTRIES LIKE CHINA AND INDIA HAVE MADE VERY VAGUE PROMISES TO DECREASE BUT WILL NOT ALLOW MONITORING..AND A REALLY BIG EMMITER ..INDONESIA..WILL NOT DO ANYTHING UNLESS THEY GET FUNDING FROM OTHER COUNTRIES ....THIS IN A NUTSHELL IS WHAT THE WORLD HAS TO OVERCOME TO ACHIEVE CLIMATE STABILITY OF 350 PARTS PER MILLION OF CARBON DIOXIDE IN THE ATMOSPHERE. . . . . .NEXT MOVE . . .= /??????/
