OIL LEAK,GULF MEXICO

WORLD WIDE CAR OWNERS MUST ACCEPT THE PRIMARY BLAME OF CREATING THE ECOLOGICAL NIGHTMARE OF CRUDE OIL GUSHING FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE GULF OF MEXICO . . . THEIR ACCOMPLICES IN THIS DISASTER ARE MANY AND SHOULD BE NOTED:CAR/TRUCK MANUFACTURERS IN JAPAN,KOREA,GERMANY,CANADA,USA,MEXICO,CHINA,ITALY,FRANCE,INDIA . . . promoters and marketers of the car industry who constantly remind the gullible public to buy these dysfunctional transport machines(autos),banks and governments for giving easy loans (to anybody who has a pulse) and bailouts for car purchases,unions who consider their jobs are more important than all life on earth and never even acknowledge the harm done by their "product=cars". . . .final note the oil spill is now confirmed to be many times the first estimates and potentially could contaminate the whole gulf of Mexico with dirty oily sludge much the same way as Alberta's tar sands are infecting the air land,and water quality of Alberta and beyond....CAR CULTURE …

OIL RIG POLLUTION

. . . .
. . . .
THEY DO IT ALL FOR YOU . .IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE MANY NON THINKING CAR DRIVERS OF THE WORLD . . .IN ORDER TO SATISFY THE INSATIABLE DEMAND FOR GASOLINE OIL RIG WORKERS MUST RISK THEIR LIVES AND ECOLOGY OF FELLOW HUMANS EVERYWHERE TO DRILL FOR OIL . . .WHEN DO WE AS A COMMUNITY SAY "ENOUGH" AND CEASE THIS SELF DESTRUCTIVE,DYSFUNCTIONAL HABIT OF SUPPORTING A CAR INDUSTRY THAT WILL DESTROY ALL LIFE ON EARTH.

I FOR ONE HAVE NO SYMPATHY FOR THE JET SETTERS STRANDED ON FAR AWAY PLACES BECAUSE OF THE VOLCANO ERUPTION IN ICELAND. . . .MOST OF THE FLYERS ARE THE AUTHORS OF THEIR OWN MISFORTUNE.I KNEW MANY PEOPLE PERSONALLY WHO WOULD FLY HALFWAY ROUND THE WORLD "JUST TO SEE A NEW BORN CHILD" OR "VISIT GRANDMA" ON SOME DISTANT CONTINENT COMLETELY DISREGARDING THE DAMAGE THEY DO TO THE EARTHS ATMOSPHERE BY FREQUENT FLYING . . . SADLY THESE SAME PEOPLE WILL SOON BE APPEARING IN FRONT OF SOME GOV'T BODY PLEADING FOR TAXPAYER HELP TO GET THEM OUT OF THEIR PREDICTAMENT . .AND I SUSPECT GENEROUS BAILOUTS OF BOTH THE FLYERS AND THE AIRLINES WILL SOON FOLLOW..THE RESPONSIBLE NON FLYING PUBLIC(TAXPAYERS)WILL ONCE AGAIN BE ASKED TO PAY FOR THE HIGH FYLING IRRESPONSIBLE JET SETTERS AS THEY SPREAD THEIR DESTRUCTIVE TRAVEL LIFESTYLE AROUND THE GLOBE.

NEW YORK WATER

Image
In its letter, the DEC criticized Entergy for letting tritium, strontium and other nuclear waste leak into the Hudson River, but its decision focused largely on Indian Point's once-through cooling system, which pulls up to 2.5 billion gallons of water from the river each day to cool the plant. After it circulates, that water is deposited back into the river at an elevated temperature.

Studies found the intake system traps and kills eggs, larvae and young fish in the river, including the endangered shortnose sturgeon and the federally protected Atlantic sturgeon. Such intake systems have also been blamed for the plight of American shad, the Hudson River's signature fish whose population has fallen so steeply that New York outlawed fishing for it this year.

WATER/NUCLEAR CONNECTION

2.5 billion gallons of water DAILY were siphoned off the hudson river in new york state by a nuclear power plant. . . .and then dumped back in the same day (after use in reactor cooling and steam generation) at a much higher temperature resulting in negative effects on the new york water supply . . . . CAN THE SAME THING BE HAPPENING AT PICKERING ??. . . .TAKE A GUESS . . INDIAN POINT CERTIFICATE DENIED www.recordonline.com APRIL 3-2010 . . .INDIAN POINT NUCLEAR STATION ON THE HUDSON RIVER IN NEW YORK STATE WAS DENIED A PERMIT TO CONTINUE USING WATER FROM THE HUDSON RIVER BY THE ENVIRONMENT DEPT. REGULATOR DUE TO THE NEGATIVE IMPACT OF THE PLANT ON THE WATER QUALITY OF THE STATE'S WATER SUPPLY AND MARINE/AQUATIC LIFE.

. . . . .The NY Times explains, "The ruling concerned the cooling system at Indian Point Units 2 and 3, which were commissioned in the early 1970s. (Indian Point 1 was shut down in 1974.) Both take in enormous volumes of river water — a combined 2.5 billion gallons a day, or more than twice the average daily water consumption of all of New York City — and use it to create steam for turbines and to cool the reactors. The water is then pumped back into the Hudson, 20 or 30 degrees hotter." The intake system "traps and kills eggs, larvae and young fish in the river, including the endangered shortnose sturgeon and the federally protected Atlantic sturgeon," according to the Times Herald-Record. . . . . .THIS NEWS EXERPT FROM GOTHAMIST NEWSPAPER NEW YORK APRIL 3RD ,2010 RE DENIAL OF HUDSON WATER USE FOR FUTURE EXPANSION OF 2 NUCLEAR REACTOR UNITS DUE TO POLLUTION OF WATER QUALITY AND ALSO OVER HEATING 2.5 BILLION GALLONS OF DISCHARGED WATER DAILY BACK INTO THE RIVER SYS…
