The massive cost overruns of the civilian nuclear power and defense corporate complex - "“Dark inflation” is just one possible name for the mysterious part of the cost increases that occur when high-vaulting technical ambitions – nuclear, in this case – collide with inchoate industrial, economic, and social decline."
"In a rare public condemnation, Clinton Administration Energy Sec. Hazel O’Leary confessed being aghast at the conduct of the scientists. She told Newsweek in 1994: “I said, ‘Who were these people and why did this happen?’ The only thing I could think of was Nazi Germany.”
Some of these same scientists and their protégés are participating in radiation contamination studies surrounding select U.S. nuclear facilities. The question must be asked, can these people ever be trusted? Can the nuclear power industry ever be trusted?
Allowing Iran the possession of nuclear fuel for a nuclear reactor, then saying: "we will not allow them to have fissionable material for a nuclear weapon" is deceitful to say the least and a prelude to war. http://online.wsj.com/news/
Every commercial nuclear reactor produces the materials to produce a nuclear weapon as it produces highly enriched uranium and plutonium as its waste. The Obama administration is supporting nuclear proliferation by their actions.
1968 - “Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons” (NPT) clearly indicates that, even though the word “enrichment” is not used in the text, all signers have the right to the “peaceful applications of nuclear technology.” That is another deceitful statement in the form of a treaty. The possession of a nuclear reactor enables a warring nation with a reactor to produce a nuclear weapon. http://www.counterpunch.org/
STUDIES LINK CANCER TO NUCLEAR FACILITIES

Tyranny brought to you by nuclear power. In Japan it seems the nuclear power disaster at Fukushima Daiichi has become a "state secret." The multi-national nuclear power industry will do most anything to keep secret the negative side of nuclear power - it sickens and kills.
In the U.S. the number of nuclear energy workers sick and dead approaches 100,000 costing American tax-payers over $10 billion dollars. http://www.dol.gov/owcp/energy/regs/compliance/weeklystats.htm
Can't happen in the U.S. you say, think again; Whistle-Blowers lives have been threatened and retired NRC chief investigator tells of a corrupted regulator. http://bestmatrrdangers.blogspot.com/
Ruskin: We ...found that that was the most common form of espionage, where a company would hire an intelligence person, who would then either pose as a volunteer or as a journalist and then vacuum up a lot of information.
Holland: And you mention in the report that a lot of these companies had employed former NSA, CIA and other types of former intelligence officers.
After 9/11, we saw a huge expansion of our intelligence budgets and I think most people may not realize that a large share of that expansion wasn’t done through government agencies directly, but through outside security contractors.
