24. "Experts Say..."
Here's our proof that the current crop of 'scientists' infesting the American Association for the Advancement of Science are intent upon preventing accurate news about the Fukushima disaster:

The crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear electricity generating facility, touched off when a tsunami hit northern Japan, has achieved the "key milestone" of cold shutdown where the temperature within the damaged reactors is below the boiling point of water, said Gregory Jaczko, chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

"There is still some potential for some amount of steam to develop, which can in principle have some very low levels of radioactivity in it," Jaczko said in a recent appearance at AAAS. "But those pose no real threat to public health and safety."


This article, written by a third-tier 'reporter' named Bob Roehr (HOW do you sleep at night, Mr. Roehr?!), goes on to suggest that the disaster at Fukushima will not deter the construction of new nuclear power plants.

More of this drivel propaganda can be found here.

The scope of our species' disrespect for this planet is increasing exponentially. Just as we need to get the Fraudsters out of Wall Street, We the People need to get the Corporate Megalomaniacs OUT of ANY venue wherein they can continue to destroy our ecosystem.
