Fukushima nuclear cleanup could create its own environmental disaster

January 10, 2012 by legitgov

Fukushima nuclear cleanup could create its own environmental disaster 09 Jan 2012 Beginning this month, at least 1,000 sq km of land [in the Fukushima region] — much of it forest and farms - will be cleaned as workers power-spray buildings, scrape soil off fields, and remove fallen leaves and undergrowth from woods near houses. ...The radioactive particles the Japanese are trying to get rid of can be quite "sticky". Removing them without removing large amounts of soil, leaves, and living plants is nearly impossible. The Ministry of Environment estimates that Fukushima will have to dispose of 15 to 31m cubic metres of contaminated soil and debris by the time the decontamination projects end.

Researchers, Shigeyuki Nakanishi and colleagues reporting in the February 1, 2012 issue of the journal Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety, have performed experiments to find out.

Penalties suggested for future Connecticut outages

Penalties suggested for future Connecticut outages 09 Jan 2012 Utilities should be penalized for inadequate responses to natural disasters as with the power outage that paralyzed Connecticut after a freak October snowstorm, a state panel recommended on Monday. Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy created the Two Storm panel to help avoid a repeat of the failures that left 880,000 homes without power - some for nearly two weeks - after the snowstorm just before Halloween. Two months earlier, 800,000 customers lost power when Tropical Storm Irene swept through the state.

U.S. moves toward legal action against Swiss bank: sources 09 Jan 2012 U.S. authorities are moving toward taking legal action against Wegelin & Co, which could lead to an indictment of one of Switzerland's last pure private banks, on charges that it enabled wealthy Americans to evade taxes, according to two persons with knowledge of the case. Negotiations in the case have reached a critical stage, with an indictment possible though the bank is seeking a deferred prosecution agreement, which would be less damaging. The outcome depends on how prosecutors, the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Treasury Department agree to treat the matter, the sources said. [No worries for the bank: Obama caves to his corpora-terrorist overlords every time.]

January 9, 2012 by legitgov

Feds: $45-million Homeland Security Cook County initiative 'failure' 09 Jan 2012 (IL) Project Shield was supposed to make citizens safer. But in the end, the $45-million Homeland Security program more resembled a disaster, wasting taxpayers' dollars and failing to make a single citizen more secure. The failed Cook County initiative was replete with equipment that failed to work, missing records and untrained first responders according to a report by the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The report, to be released Monday but obtained by The Sun-Times and NBC5 News, found "millions of tax dollars may have been wasted."

Romney attacked over record as 'job creator' at Bain Capital 09 Jan 2012 For months, Mitt Romney has seldom been challenged on his claim that his leadership at Bain Capital LLC offers evidence that he knows how to create jobs. That has ended as his Republican rivals are accusing him of exploiting companies and firing workers in a quest to make millions. "Those of us who believe in free markets and those of us who believe that, in fact, the whole goal of investment is entrepreneurship and job creation, would find it pretty hard to justify rich people figuring out clever, legal ways to loot out a company," former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich told reporters in Manchester, New Hampshire, yesterday, ahead of the state's Jan. 10 presidential primary. [Well said, except he didn't need the word 'out' after 'loot.' And, that is exactly why the lamestream media is pushing Romney/Obusha - two Wall Street trolls/Reichwingers cut from the same cloth.]

Thin ice jeopardizes polar bears in Manitoba

Thin ice jeopardizes polar bears in Manitoba 08 Jan 2012 Hundreds of polar bears in northeastern Manitoba may face an increased risk of starvation due to delayed ice formation along the western coast of Hudson Bay, conservationists say. Higher-than-normal temperatures have prevented ice from forming in the region, putting it three to four weeks behind schedule, according to the Canadian Ice Service, a division of Environment Canada. As a result, minimum ice cover there is the lowest since 1971, Canadian Ice Service forecaster Luc Desjardins said. Formation of sea ice is critical for polar bears, which use it as a platform for catching seals and other marine mammals.
