Australian Atomic Confessions [Full Documentary]
 
49:22
Sacrificial Lambs on the High Alter of Science Australian servicemen and nomadic Aboriginals reveal the devastating effects of atomic weapons testing carried out in Australia by the British during the 1950s. For the first time, members of the Royal Australian Army, Air Force and Navy describe former top secret aspects of those tests. With the use of rare archival film and photographs, as well as eye witness accounts, Australian Atomic Confessions chronicles the hidden history and exposes previously hidden Governemnet cover-ups. The consequences of nuclear testing imposed on the Australian people and land are not just skeletons of the past. Sydneys' new nuclear reactor continues to pose a threat to the environment and civilians, and the problem of removing and disposing of the old nuclear reactor remains an unanswered question. Prominent Aboriginal Elders also warn that an imminent catastrophe may occur in Central Australia as a result of two uranium mines. Australian Atomic Confessions is a chilling expose of nuclear testing and its damaging legacy, one that continues to this day. Uploaded with permission from Katherine Aigner ------------- Australian legislation is due this week that would declare a site in the Muckaty Land Trust for radioactive waste management. Many oppose this plan and call on Australians to help stop it: ?v=PKybLeLyyos 1- Sign this petition against the waste dump legislation: http://bit.ly/xtsr0b 2- Call a Senator and tell them to vote against the legislation: http://bit.ly/27QQq5p 3- Take a photo with a protest sign and email it to natwasley(at)alec.org.au to join a virtual march on Canberra.

Fracking explained: opportunity or danger
 
05:04
Fracking explained in five minutes. Fracking is a controversial topic. On the one side the gas drilling companies, on the other citizen opposed to this drilling method. Politicians are also divided on the matter. We try to take a neutral look on fracking. It is relevant for all of us, because of high prices for energy and the danger for our drinking water. This video focuses mostly on the debate currently ongoing in europe. In a lot of european countries there is a public outcry against fracking, espacially in germany. But the facts in this video are relevant to all of us. Short videos, explaining things. For example Evolution, the Universe, Stock Market or controversial topics like Fracking. Because we love science. We would love to interact more with you, our viewers to figure out what topics you want to see. If you have a suggestion for future videos or feedback, drop us a line! :) We're a bunch of Information designers from munich, visit us on facebook or behance to say hi! https://www.facebook.com/Kurzgesagt https://www.behance.net/kurzgesagt Fracking explained: opportunity or danger Help us caption & translate this video! http://www.youtube.com/timedtext_cs_panel?c=UCsXVk37bltHxD1rDPwtNM8Q&tab=2
The Time Soviet Engineers Used a Nuclear Bomb to Put out a Fire
 
05:24
We often think of nuclear bombs as extreme weapons of destruction. While they are certainly that, in the 1960s the world's superpowers began investigating more practical uses for these powerful devices. The US and the Soviet Union were embattled in the heat of the Cold War in the early 1960s. Both countries had stockpiled nuclear weapons, but thousands of them simply sat idly across their respective country. The US subsequently created operation plowshare and the Soviet Union a program named "Nuclear Explosions for the National Economy". Operation Plowshare in the US was formed to explore the possibility of using nuclear explosions for excavation or natural gas fracturing. The evidence of this project's test can still be seen through craters in the Nevada desert. Surprisingly this research project persisted for nearly 20 years, from 1958 to 1975. The Soviets were also researching practical uses of nuclear explosions, and like the US, their research was focused on natural gas and mining. Unlike the US, however, little concern was given to the environmental impact of these Soviet nuclear tests. Soviet engineers behind the project once contaminated a densely populated region along the river Volga. They also decided to blow up a river to create a reservoir – which they succeeded in doing – except it's still radioactive to this day. During this nuclear research, scientists realized that they might be able to solve a problem that had been raging on for years.

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Effects_of_nuclear_explosions Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ The energy released from a nuclear weapon detonated in the troposphere can be divided into four basic categories: - Blast—40–50% of total energy - Thermal radiation—30–50% of total energy - Ionizing radiation—5% of total energy (more in a neutron bomb) - Residual radiation—5–10% of total energy with the mass of the explosion ...Locations such as submarine, surface, air burst, or exo-atmospheric determine how much energy is produced as blast and how much as radiation. In general, denser media around the bomb, like water, absorb more energy, and create more powerful shockwaves while at the same time limiting the area of its effect. When an air burst occurs, lethal blast and thermal effects proportionally scale much more rapidly than lethal radiation effects, as higher and higher yield nuclear weapons are used... Energy from a nuclear explosive is initially released in several forms of penetrating radiation... Ionizing radiation... The intensity of initial nuclear radiation decreases rapidly with distance from the point of burst... The character of the radiation received at a given location also varies with distance from the explosion. Near the point of the explosion, the neutron intensity is greater than the gamma intensity, but with increasing distance the neutron-gamma ratio decreases. Ultimately, the neutron component of initial radiation becomes negligible in comparison with the gamma component. The range for significant levels of initial radiation does not increase markedly with weapon yield and, as a result, the initial radiation becomes less of a hazard with increasing yield. With larger weapons, above 50 kt (200 TJ), blast and thermal effects are so much greater in importance that prompt radiation effects can be ignored. The neutron radiation serves to transmute the surrounding matter, often rendering it radioactive. When added to the dust of radioactive material released by the bomb itself, a large amount of radioactive material is released into the environment. This form of radioactive contamination is known as nuclear fallout and poses the primary risk of exposure to ionizing radiation for a large nuclear weapon... Survivability ...Death is highly likely and radiation poisoning is almost certain if one is caught in the open with no terrain or building masking effects within a radius of 0–3 km from a 1 megaton airburst, and the 50% chance of death from the blast extends out to ~8 km from the same 1 megaton atmospheric explosion. To highlight the variability in the real world, and the effect that being indoors can make, despite the lethal radiation and blast zone extending well past her position at Hiroshima, Akiko Takakura survived the effects of a 16 kt atomic bomb at a distance of 300 meters from the hypocenter, with only minor injuries, due mainly to her position in the lobby of the Bank of Japan, a reinforced concrete building, at the time... With medical attention, radiation exposure is survivable to a 200 rems acute dose exposure. If a group of people is exposed to a 50 to 59 rems acute (within 24 hours) radiation dose, none will get radiation sickness. If the group is exposed to 60 to 180 rems, 50% will become sick with radiation poisoning. If medically treated, all of the 60-180 rems group will survive. If the group is exposed to 200 to 450 rems, most if not all of the group will become sick. 50% of the 200-450 rems group will die within two to four weeks, even with medical attention. If the group is exposed to 460 to 600 rems, 100% of the group will get radiation poisoning. 50% of the 460-600 rems group will die within one to three weeks. If the group is exposed to 600 to 1000 rems, 50% will die in one to three weeks. If the group is exposed to 1,000 to 5,000 rems, 100% of the group will die within 2 weeks. At 5,000 rems, 100% of the group will die within 2 days...

I've studied nuclear war for 35 years -- you should be worried. | Brian Toon | TEDxMileHigh
 
14:59
For the first time in decades, it's hard to ignore the threat of nuclear war. But as long as you're far from the blast, you're safe, right? Wrong. In this sobering talk, atmospheric scientist Brian Toon explains how even a small nuclear war could destroy all life on earth -- and what we can do to prevent it. A professor in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of Colorado-Boulder, Brian Toon investigates the causes of the ozone hole, how volcanic eruptions alter the climate, how ancient Mars had flowing rivers, and the environmental impacts of nuclear war. He contributed to the U.N.’s Nobel Peace Prize for climate change and holds numerous scientific awards, including two NASA medals for Exceptional Scientific Achievement. He is an avid woodworker. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

It was the US portion of what are called Peaceful Nuclear Explosions (PNE). Successful demonstrations of non-combat uses for nuclear explosives include rock blasting, stimulation of tight gas, chemical element manufacture (test shot Anacostia resulted in Curium-250m being discovered), unlocking some of the mysteries of the so-called "r-Process" of stellar nucleosynthesis and probing the composition of the Earth's deep crust, creating reflection seismology Vibroseis data which has helped geologists and follow on mining company prospecting. Negative impacts from Project Plowshare’s 27 nuclear projects led to the program's termination in 1977, due in large part to public opposition. These consequences included Tritiated water (projected to increase by CER Geonuclear Corporation to a level of 2% of the then-maximum level for drinking water) and the deposition of fallout from radioactive material being injected into the atmosphere before underground testing was mandated by treaty... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiation_protection Radiation protection, sometimes known as radiological protection, is the science and practice of protecting people and the environment from the harmful effects of ionizing radiation. Ionizing radiation is widely used in industry and medicine, and can present a significant health hazard. It causes microscopic damage to living tissue, which can result in skin burns and radiation sickness at high exposures (known as "tissue effects"), and statistically elevated risks of cancer at low exposures ("stochastic effects"). Fundamental to radiation protection is the reduction of expected dose and the measurement of human dose uptake. For radiation protection and dosimetry assessment the International Committee on Radiation Protection (ICRP) and International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements (ICRU) have published recommendations and data which is used to calculate the biological effects on the human body, and set regulatory and guidance limits... Factors in dose uptake There are three factors that control the amount, or dose, of radiation received from a source. Radiation exposure can be managed by a combination of these factors: Time: Reducing the time of an exposure reduces the effective dose proportionally. An example of reducing radiation doses by reducing the time of exposures might be improving operator training to reduce the time they take to handle a source. Distance: Increasing distance reduces dose due to the inverse square law. Distance can be as simple as handling a source with forceps rather than fingers. Shielding: The term 'biological shield' refers to a mass of absorbing material placed around a reactor, or other radioactive source, to reduce the radiation to a level safe for humans. The effectiveness of a material as a biological shield is related to its cross-section for scattering and absorption, and to a first approximation is proportional to the total mass of material per unit area interposed along the line of sight between the radiation source and the region to be protected. Hence, shielding strength or "thickness" is conventionally measured in units of g/cm2...

Sensible Environmentalism (w/ Dr. Patrick Moore, environmentalist)
 
23:00
Dr. Patrick Moore who is one of the most controversial figures in the environmental movement. It’s a position he’s held for more than four decades – first, in defence of the environment as a member of Greenpeace at Amchitka Island and in the South Pacific protesting nuclear testing; then, in the mid-1970s, taking on the Soviet whaling industry off of the coast of California. His environmental credentials go back a long way. Along the way, however, Moore and Greenpeace stopped agreeing on GMOs, global warming and climate change, because he says the the environmental group became more about fundraising campaigns and less about science. In this Conversation, Dr. Moore lets loose on a wide range of topics, from golden rice to climate. --- Simon Fraser University’s Centre for Dialogue presents Conversations That Matter.

10 MOST TOXIC Places On Earth
 
11:47
From the DIRTIEST Cities, to nuclear wastelands ; these are the 10 MOST TOXIC Places On Earth. HEY YOU ! There are more awesome videos being made every week, like and subscribe to World Unearthed so you don't miss a beat ! 10.La Oroya | Peru 9.Dhaka | Bangladesh 8. Norilsk | Russia The city has been branded as the most polluted city in Russia, where the snow is black, air tastes like sulfur and rivers run red. Life expectancy of employees in the smelter is 10 years below the Russian average. By some estimates, 1% of the world`s sulfur dioxide emission comes from the Norilsk nickel mines. Nearly 500 tons of copper and nickel as well as two million tons of sulfur dioxide are released into the air, annually. In 2016 the nearby Daldykan River turned red and the evidence pointed to privately owned wastewater pipes. The company accepted the responsibility while claiming that the coloring was of no danger to humans or wildlife. The smelting plant was in the process of being modernized and steps are being taken in order to reduce pollution. 7.Nevada Proving Grounds | Nevada Nevada Proving Grounds, now known as the Nevada Test Site or Nevada National Security Site is a U. S. Department of Energy reservation in Nye County, Nevada, 65 miles northwest from Las Vegas. The tests stopped in 1994 but the area is still extremely radioactive. Even though the radioactivity in the water is gradually declining, isotopes like plutonium and uranium could pose risks to workers or future settlers on the NNSS for tens of thousands of years. 6.Shanghai | China In December of 2013, Shanghai suffered a great spike in air pollution when the so called “2013 Eastern China Smog” occurred. The pollution levels were between 23 and 31 times the international standard. Nearly one-third of all government vehicles were pulled off the streets, construction work was halted, student`s outdoor activities were suspended, flights were cancelled or diverted. And even though air pollution in Shanghai is substantial by the world standard, it is still lower than other cities in China. Among the top 500 most polluted cities in the world, Chinese cities hold 179 spots. Thankfully, China is taking extremely serious measures to reduce pollution, closing coal factories, smelters and mills while switching over to more eco-friendly energy sources. 5.Northwest Arctic | Alaska Out of all the states in the union, Alaska produces the most toxins, outranking every other state by nearly 3 times. A closer look reveals that 91% of all of Alaska`s emissions come from one county, Northwest Arctic, most of it originating from one city – Kotzebue, population 7,500. So how is it possible that a tiny city, in the middle of nowhere Alaska is responsible for so much pollution? Well, just 90 miles from Kotzebue is Red Dog Mine, the largest source of zinc in the world. It was established in 1987 and each year, it releases 756 million pounds of toxins into the environment. 4.Asse II mine | Germany The Asse II mine opened between 1906, initially extracting potash (until 1925) and producing rock salt (1916-1964). But during the period between 1964 and 1995 the mine was used as a storage of radioactive waste. Now, this mine has been abandoned, with barrels of low-level and medium-level waste in a jumbled heap, some of it not even contained properly. There`s fears that the mine could fill with water and authorities are rushing to remove the waste with remotely operated vehicles since it is unsafe for workers to go in there. 3. | New Mexico The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant’s history is relatively short, it became operational in 1999. The facility is used to store transuranic waste left over from nuclear weapons research. Transuranic waste consists of clothing, tools, rags, residues, debris, soil and other items contaminated with radioactive elements, mostly plutonium. 2.Pacific Proving Grounds | Pacific Ocean Pacific Proving Grounds is the name given to a number of sites on the Marshall Islands and in the Pacific Ocean which were used for nuclear testing between 1946 and 1962. The US conducted 105 atmospheric and underwater nuclear tests in the Pacific. 1.Pripyat | Ukraine 50000 People used to live here... Now it's a ghost town. Radiation levels were so high that Nuclear Power stations in Sweden, Finland and Norway detected the anomaly. Twenty years later, the area is still uninhabitable. Except for the 197 people living in 11 villages scattered in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. The average age is 63.

Heavy Metals In The Environment And Their Health Effects
 
21:21
http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/medicardium.html Heavy metals have a density of 6.0 g/cm3 or more (much higher than the average particle density of soils which is 2.65 g/cm3) and occur naturally in rocks but concentrations are frequently elevated as a result of contamination. The most important heavy metals with regard to potential hazards and occurrence in contaminated soils are: arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd), chromium (Cr), mercury (Hg), lead (Pb) and zinc (Zn). The sources of heavy metal pollutants are metal mining, metal smelting, metallurgical industries, and other metal-using industries, waste disposal, corrosions of metals in use, agriculture and forestry, forestry, fossil fuel combustion, and sports and leisure activities. Heavy metal contamination affects large areas worldwide. Hot spots of heavy metal pollution are located close to industrial sites, around large cities and in the vicinity of mining and smelting plants. Agriculture in these areas faces major problems due to heavy metal transfer into crops and subsequently into the food chain. http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/store http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/store/medicardium.html

First Soviet hydrogen bomb test (1953)
 
01:57
Purchase of footages and offers, contact us - [email protected] Date: 12/08/1953 | Type: Tower 30m | Yield: 400kt Joe-4 was the fifth Soviet nuclear test and demonstrated the use of fusion in a weaponizable design known as the Sloika or "Layer Cake" design. The device obtained nearly all of its yield from fission and was limited for practical purposes to yields of less than 1Mt. The RDS-6s warhead used a U-235 fissile core surrounded by alternating layers of lithium-6 deuteride spiked with tritium, and a uranium fusion tamper inside a high explosive implosion system. Though not a true thermonuclear weapon the USSR claimed it was, and in conjunction with the fact that it was air-deliverable caused considerable embarasment to the US. The US did not successfuly test a deliverable thermonuclear bomb untill 1954.

🇰🇿 Kazakhstan's Polygon Legacy: Silent Bombs | Rewind
 
48:25
For 40 years from, 1949 to 1989, the Soviet Union exploded 460 nuclear bombs in Eastern Kazakhstan. About 200,000 villagers living within 45 kilometres of the test site, the 'Polygon', were exposed to high levels of radiation. Not only were they not protected but they were treated as human guinea pigs, instruments of study in the event the cold war turned into nuclear war. But what is probably most devastating of all is what is happening today. Children born decades later and never directly exposed to nuclear fallout are sick and getting sicker. They are the product of "radiation-induced mutation in the chromosomes of sperm and ova". In other words, the damage their parents and grandparents suffered in the Soviet Union's heedlessness has not only been passed down but also intensified in the third, fourth and fifth generations. However, others have not learned from the mistakes of those who have come before them. Late last year, North Korea triggered a 6.3 magnitude tremor as a result of its own nuclear testing, causing major structural damage and a significant number of casualties. Shortly after, a 'human-induced' earthquake only kilometres away was recorded; one of an increasing number of earthquakes caused by human activity. Gillian Foulger, professor of geophysics at Durham University, has compiled a comprehensive list of hundreds of similar instances, as a means to study cause, effect and due consequences. "It's well-known that this occurs, it has been observed many times - for example, at the Nevada test site, with American nuclear testing. Following these tests, there is such a disruption of the local stress field that swarms of earthquakes often occur," says Foulger. With the potential for these disruptions to build to full-scale earthquakes, the strongest recorded being a magnitude 7.9 earthquake, which activities should elicit more care and control before they are executed to avoid these repercussions and what can be done to do so? "Everybody is surprised at the huge range of activities that can induce earthquakes. These include mining, filling reservoirs, building tall buildings, extracting gas and oil ... I could go on and on," says Foulger. "There's great economic benefit [to these projects] but of course there's always a down side. Industrial accidents, road accidents, environmental damage ... we now realise that there can also be induced earthquakes. This needs to be added to a portfolio of health and safety hazards that should be managed whenever a big project is undertaken."

Freezing 200,000 Tons of Lethal Arsenic Dust
 
04:34
Giant Mine sits near Yellowknife, in the Northwest Territories of Canada. Once it was a productive gold mine, but after the gold ran out, the mining company went bankrupt and left the government to clean up the mess: enough arsenic trioxide dust to kill everyone on Earth. The solution: freezing it, at least for now. Thanks to all the team at the Giant Mine Remediation Project!

17 Most Radioactive Places in the World
 
08:44
Don't go near these dangerous and radioactive places from the Fukushima power plant the contaminated radiation filled Chernobyl Subscribe for new videos weekly! 9. The Hanford Nuclear Reservation Site | Hanford, Washington This nuclear reservation site played an essential role in the creation of the atomic bomb that would eventually be dropped on Nagasaki, Japan. Hanford aided in the production of the bomb project by manufacturing the plutonium that was needed. Even though the supply of plutonium was no longer needed in service, it was reported that around two-thirds of it was left behind in Hanford and caused the groundwater to become contaminated. 8. The Mayak Production Association | Mayak, Russia There is a huge nuclear power plant that has called Mayak, Russia home for the last several decades. It all took place back in 1957, when a tragic accident occurred that caused an explosion to release an estimated 100 tons of radioactive material into the environment and contaminated a large mass of the surrounding area, including Lake Karachay. For the next 23 years, the whole thing was made a cover up and it wasn’t until 1980 that this information was finally made public. Around 400,000 people are believed to have been exposed to the toxic waste. 7. The Sellafield Power Plant | Sellafield, UK Before its initial conversion into a commercial territory, Sellafield, in the United Kingdom was once a plutonium facility that produced nuclear bombs. To this day, it’s believed that around two-thirds of all the buildings that are located within Sellafield are labeled as being polluted by radioactive waste. The plant is said to set free around 8 million liters of radioactive waste each day that is the cause of so many deaths from nearby residents. 6. The Church Rock Uranium Mill | Church Rock, New Mexico The notorious Church Rock Uranium Mill Spill was responsible for over a thousand tons of solid radioactive waste that was spilled out and ended up flowing into the Puerco River, along with another 93 million gallons of acidic tailings solution that was also radioactive. Because of this, the radiation levels in the area skyrocketed up to 7,000 times higher than what they already were. During a study that was conducted back in 2003, researchers found that the river still shows signs of contamination. 5. The Siberian Chemical Combine | Siberia, Russia Siberia, Russia happens to be the home of one of the most massive chemical facilities in the entirety of the world. The Siberian Chemical Combine is responsible for the contamination of the ground waters in surrounding area, nearly 125,000 tons of solid waste to be exact. Research data also shows that the rain and wind have helped in transferring the waste near local animals and caused a massive spike in their death toll. 4. The Polygon | Semipalatinsk, Kazakhstan The Polygon, which is located in Kazakhstan, is famously known for its atomic bomb project. This was the site where the Soviet Union launched and tested their first nuclear bomb which was recorded at holding the biggest concentrated amount of nuclear explosions in the whole world. The uninhabited area is responsible for an estimated 200,000 cases of people suffering from radiation complications. 3. The Zapadnyi Mining and Chemical Combine | Mailuu-Suu, Kyrgyzstan The mining town of Mailuu-Suu is known for being one of the top ten most polluted places in the entire world. It was during 1946 to 1968 that the chemical combine extracted around 9,100 tons of uranium for the Soviet Union’s nuclear program. A landslide managed to spill 1,600,000 gallons of uranium from unstable uranium tailing pits that were left on an even more unstable hillside just above the town. 2. The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant | Chernobyl, Ukraine It was April 26, 1986, when a scheduled experiment to test the plant’s potential emergency core cooling safety feature backfired and caused the fourth reactor’s core to explode due to an increase of power. There was no containment vessel to trap any of the escaping radiation and so it spread through the air with the help of smoke. That radiation would go on to affect 6 million people and cause an estimated 4,000 to 93,000 deaths. The plant still remains heavily contaminated and had released around 100 times more radiation than the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. 1. The Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Plant | Fukushima, Japan On March 11, 2011, the Tohoku Earthquake struck at a 9.0 magnitude that also created massive tsunamis. The first plant was hit by a tsunami that was measured at being 29 feet high and was followed by a second tsunami that hit the second plant with a wall of water almost 43 feet tall. The four reactors at the Fukushima ॥ automatically shut down. This event has been categorized as the worst nuclear accident since the incident at Chernobyl. The effects have been long lasting and radiation leakage has been detected over 200 miles away.

Who are nuclear weapons scientists? | Hugh Gusterson | TEDxFoggyBottom
 
12:20
Most people study nuclear warfare by studying the new developments in the weapons themselves. Hugh Gusterson takes a different approach. Instead of studying the weapons, he studies the nuclear scientists who created them. He took to the TEDxFoggyBottom stage to share what he learned. Dr. Gusterson’s research focuses on the interdisciplinary study of the conditions under which particular bodies of knowledge are formed and deployed, with special attention to the science of war, the military, and nuclear weapons. His research addresses the problem of how to understand knowledge as a cultural formation, and how to analyze the historical and structural transformations of science and technology. He asks questions such as: How do cultures of science initiate and shape participants? How can we critically assess universalist claims about scientific and military “truths?” How do scientists justify their complicity with the projects of nation-states? This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Nuclear Power and Bomb Testing Documentary Film
 
52:35
The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, or WIPP, is the world's third deep geological repository (after closure of Germany's Repository for radioactive waste Morsleben and the Schacht Asse II Salt Mine) licensed to permanently dispose of transuranic radioactive waste for 10,000 years that is left from the research and production of nuclear weapons. It is located approximately 26 miles (42 km) east of Carlsbad, New Mexico, in eastern Eddy County. In order to address growing public unrest concerning construction of the WIPP, the New Mexico Environmental Evaluation Group (EEG) was created in 1978. This group, charged with overseeing the WIPP, verified statements, facts, and studies conducted and released by the DOE regarding the facility. The stewardship this group provided effectively lowered public fear and let the facility progress with little public opposition in comparison to similar facilities around the nation such as Yucca Mountain in Nevada. The EEG, in addition to acting as a check for the government agencies overseeing the project, acted as a valuable advisor. In a 1981 drilling, pressurized brine was again discovered. The site was set to be abandoned when the EEG stepped in and suggested a series of tests on the brine and the surrounding area. These tests were conducted and the results showed that the brine deposit was relatively small and was isolated from other deposits. Drilling in the area was deemed safe due to these results. This saved the project valuable money and time by preventing a drastic relocation. In 1979 Congress authorized construction of the facility. In addition to formal authorization, Congress redefined the level of waste to be stored in the WIPP from high temperature to transuranic, or low level, waste. Transuranic waste often consists of materials which have come in contact with radioactive substances such as plutonium and uranium. This often includes gloves, tools, rags, and assorted machinery often used in the production of nuclear fuel and weapons. Although much less potent than nuclear reactor byproducts, this waste still remains radioactive for approximately 24,000 years. This change in classification led to a decrease in safety parameters for the proposed facility, allowing construction to continue at a faster pace. The first extensive testing of the facility was due to begin in 1988. The proposed testing procedures involved interring samples of low level waste in the newly constructed caverns. Various structural and environmental tests would then be performed on the facility to verify its integrity and to prove its ability to safely contain nuclear waste. Opposition from various external organizations delayed actual testing into the early 1990s. Attempts at testing were resumed in October 1991 with US Secretary of Energy James Watkins announcing that he would begin transportation of waste to the WIPP. Despite apparent progress on the facility, construction still remained costly and complicated. Originally conceptualized in the 1970s as a warehouse for waste, the repository now had regulations similar to those of nuclear reactors. As of December 1991, the plant had been under construction for 20 years and was estimated to have cost over one billion dollars. At the time, WIPP officials reported over 28 different organizations claiming authority over operations of the facility. In November 1991, a federal judge ruled that Congress must approve WIPP before any waste, even for testing purposes, was sent to the facility. This indefinitely delayed testing until Congress gave its approval. The 102nd United States Congress passed legislation allowing use of the WIPP. The House of Representatives approved the facility on October 6, 1992 and the Senate passed a bill allowing the opening of the facility on October 8 of the same year. The bill was met with much opposition in the Senate. Senator Richard H. Bryan fought the bill based on safety issues that concerned a similar facility located in Nevada, the state for which he was serving as senator. His efforts almost prevented the bill from passing. New Mexico senators Pete V. Domenici and Jeff Bingaman effectively reassured Senator Bryan that these issues would be addressed in the 103rd Congress. The final legislation provided safety standards requested by the House and an expedited timeline requested by the Senate. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waste_Isolation_Pilot_Plant

Dr. Patrick Moore: Ex-President of Greenpeace Talks Benefits of Nuclear, Mining, GMO Crops, and More
 
28:07
Many of the environmental and health issues we told are bad for us are actually of great benefit says the former President of Greenpeace, Dr. Patrick Moore. Dr. Moore worked for Greenpeace for over 20 years and quit largely due to the organization’s shift away from humanitarianism towards the vilification of. He went from being at the top of their organization to being on top of their most wanted list During his tenure, Dr. Moore led many campaigns against nuclear war, trophy hunting, killing whales, disposal of toxic waste and many other issues. Throughout most of his time at Greenpeace, Dr. Moore recognized a noble goal to save civilization. However, by the time he left, humans were being characterized as enemies of nature- as if we were separate from it. Dr. Moore say that nuclear is one of the cleanest, safest, most reliable, and cost effective forms of energy. France gets 70% of it's electricity from nuclear power, and their electricity cost is about half of Germany's which is phasing out nuclear and is using wind and solar. Their electricity cost has tripled. Monsanto, another enemy of Greenpeace, has improved seed production and aided the world in food production. 90% of Monsanto's seed are genetically modified. Farmers want GMO seeds because they are better for plant productivity and protection. Every credible science organization says GMOs are as safe or safer than conventional foods. No GMO crop gets on the market without rigorous testing. In a similar light, Dr. Moore believes that the chance of vaccines saving a life is a million times more than a vaccine causing harm This month, Dr. Moore wrote a report on THE POSITIVE IMPACT OF HUMAN CO2 EMISSIONS ON THE SURVIVAL OF LIFE ON EARTH. What he said is yet to be disputed: https://fcpp.org/sites/default/files/documents/Moore%20-%20Positive%20Impact%20of%20Human%20CO2%20Emissions.pdf In the report, Dr. Moore concludes that the burning of fossil fuels has reversed a million year long depletion of CO2 in the atmosphere caused by sea creatures and plant life. Human burning of fossil fuels could actually be saving the world! For more info follow Dr. Moore on twitter @ecosensenow

Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) To illustrate the linkages among national security, secrecy, and environmental quality, Professor Wargo describes the Atomic Energy Commission's nuclear tests in the 1950s. The Atomic Energy Commission collected data on the spread of radionuclides from the nuclear tests, and discovered that the radionuclides were circulating around the world. This process of discovery raised issues regarding ways to manage risks to the population while both continuing the nuclear tests and keeping them secret for national security reasons. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Nuking the World One Spot at a Time!

What the HELL is Wrong with this World? How could we Allow this to HAPPEN?! MANY Miles of UNLINED OPEN PITS leaking Radioactive Waste directly into the environment for YEARS with NO SOLUTION for the nuclear waste. Fruit flies and wasps actually CLOSED Hanford nuclear waste dump because they landed on radioactive waste and ended up in the lunch room! The area had to be Evacuated due to fruit flies and wasps with radioactive contaminates on their bodies. Think about it! Yes, right there in Washington- United States of America. Leaking constantly into the Columbia River for Now into Eternity. No place to put the waste so they just let it leach into the environment. Wow! How do you prioritize which area of the world is the worst nuclear "hot spot". Triple (Plus) nuclear meltdowns at Fukushima with HORRIBLE leaning tilting sinking buildings with TONS of spent fuel rods stored ON SITE ABOVE THE MELTED NUCLEAR CORES..., MOX fuel inside reactor 3 (exploded and melted down). Chernobyl was a "partial meltdown". Look at the Battle off Chernobyl. And Hanford OPEN UNLINED PITS OF RADIOACTIVE WASTE JUST SITTING THERE leaching into the Columbia River contaminating everything around it (virtually "forEver'). 'No Consequences' At Hanford For Safety Failures; America's Nuclear Insanity http://youtu.be/txOpPumoqz4 The continuing series of workplace safety incidents at Hanford -- just last weeksix more workers received medical attention after breathing toxic vapors -- shines a light on a little-known exception for the government-owned nuclear waste site in southeastern Washington. Unlike every other workplace in the state -- from the BP oil refinery at Cherry Point to corporate offices in downtown Seattle -- the 586 square mile Hanford Site is exempt from federal and state workplace safety oversight and enforcement. http://www.king5.com/news/investigators/Hanford-workers-left-without-honest-broker-on-safety-261773531.html The dangers posed by radioactive waste from the Los Alamos National Laboratory, as well as other US cities that exemplify America's nuclear waste problems. http://rt.com/shows/breaking-set-summary/163508-us-nuclear-insanity-black-friday/ NBC stations reveal nuclear workers suffering severe brain damage, dementia — Toxic waste raining down from sky, wore baseball caps for protection — Brains being eaten away, teeth falling out — Workers raising safety issues framed using false evidence, fired — Gov't not allowed in to investigate (VIDEO) http://enenews.com/nbc-stations-reveal-nuclear-workers-suffering-severe-brain-damage-dementia-toxic-waste-raining-down-from-sky-wore-baseball-caps-for-protection-brains-being-eaten-away-workers-raising-safety http://www.nrc.gov/info-finder/reactor/ginn.html Waste Isolation Pilot Plant Biennial Environmental Compliance Report "14.2.10 Special Requirements for Plutonium Shipments, 10 CFR §71.63 Shipments containing plutonium must be made with the contents in solid form if the contents contain greater than 0.74 TBq [terabecquerel] (20 Ci [curies]) of plutonium.

PETER WATTS (AUSTRALIA) Aboriginal representative of the Arabunna People, Co-Chair for Australian Nuclear Free Alliance KATSUMI FURISTU (JAPAN) Expert in radiation and genetics, Hyogo Collefe of Medecine, cofounder of the Chernobyl Relief Group of Kansai, former member of the Investigation committee of A-bomb survivors THE SYMPOSIUM The World Uranium Symposium will address issues arising from the nuclear fuel chain, from mining uranium to its end-uses and byproducts for civilian or military purposes. Both scientific and community-based, the Symposium is organized around the following themes: health, environment, economy, ethics, governance, human rights and the rights of indigenous peoples. Open to the public, the symposium had hosted more than 300 people per day from 14 to 16 April 2015, and had included local, national and international representatives from the sectors of health, research, industry, education, civil society, policy makers and indigenous communities. local, national and/or international media were present. All presentations of the symposium will be posted in electronic formats (text and / or videos) after the Symposium, in French and / or English. • April 14 (Day 1): Uranium mines and the nuclear life cycle : health and environmental issues • April 15 (Day 2): Civil and military nuclear : ethics, economics and political issues • April 16 (Day 3): Human rights, indigenous peoples' rights and governance issues ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED The Symposium is jointly organized by Physicians for Global Survival (1985 Nobel Peace Prize), the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, Nature Québec, the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility and the Coalition pour que le Québec ait meilleure mine. It also receives support from the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (Swiss chapter), the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Sustainable Development Institute, the Cree Nation of Mistissini, MiningWatch Canada, and a number of other local, national and international partners. CONTEXT The Symposium is occurring at a time when many organizations and governments question the future ofnuclear power, currently providing about 11% of the world’s electricity. The year 2015 also marks the seventieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the corresponding United Nations negotiations of the Non Proliferation Treaty for the prevention and the abolition of nuclear arms. It will also see the tabling on a new UN treaty on climate change. Canada is one of the largest producers and exporters of uranium worldwide, yet its nuclear energy output is in relative decline. Only two provinces still operate nuclear reactors: Ontario and New Brunswick. While uranium has been primarily mined from Saskatchewan, the provinces of British Columbia and Nova Scotia have officially banned uranium mining. Quebec recently shut down its sole nuclear reactor and has tasked the Bureau d’audiences publiques sur l’environnement (BAPE) with conducting an investigation on issues related to uranium mining. It is expected to release its report by May 20 2015. The Symposium aims to tackle these different issues and to provide recommendations to decision makers to better ensure protection for the human health, global security and a safe environment

Toxic Waste Spill in North Carolina: Coal Ash (Part 1)
 
16:16
Coal ash, which contains many of the world's worst carcinogens, is what's left over when coal is burnt for electricity. An estimated 113 million tons of coal ash are produced annually in the US, and stored in almost every state — some of it literally in people's backyards. With very little government oversight and few safeguards in place, toxic chemicals have been known to leak from these storage sites and into nearby communities, contaminating drinking water and making residents sick. On February 2, 2014, up to 39,000 tons of coal ash and 27 million gallons of contaminated water spilled out into the Dan River in North Carolina after a pipe broke underneath a coal ash pond at a Duke Energy power plant. The environmental disaster thrust Duke Energy, the country’s largest electricity company, into the spotlight, revealing a history of violations and inadequate oversight of ponds at all of its plants across the state. In part one, VICE News travels to North Carolina to visit a river that’s been poisoned with arsenic from a nearby Duke Energy site, speak with a resident who has found toxic heavy metals in her drinking water, and question a Duke Energy spokesperson about the power company’s policies.

Helen Caldicott: Hiroshima, Fukushima & Beyond
 
22:09
Helen Caldicott, MD was among 45 leading scholars, authors and activists who convened at The Great Hall of Cooper Union, New York City, on October 25-26, 2014, for the public presentation: "Techno-Utopianism and the Fate of the Earth." Speakers discussed the profound impacts—environmental, economic and social—of runaway technological expansionism and cyber immersion; the tendency to see technology as the savior for all problems. For more info, see http://ifg.org/techno-utopia/program/ . ABOUT HELEN CALDICOTT: The single most articulate and passionate advocate of citizen action to remedy the nuclear and environmental crises, Dr Caldicott, has devoted the last forty two years to an international campaign to educate the public about the medical hazards of the nuclear age and the necessary changes in human behavior to stop environmental destruction. Born in Melbourne, Australia in 1938, Dr Caldicott received her medical degree from the University of Adelaide Medical School in 1961. She founded the Cystic Fibrosis Clinic at the Adelaide Children’s Hospital in 1975 and subsequently was an instructor in pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and on the staff of the Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Boston, Mass., until 1980 when she resigned to work full time on the prevention of nuclear war. In 1971, Dr Caldicott played a major role in Australia’s opposition to French atmospheric nuclear testing in the Pacific; in 1975 she worked with the Australian trade unions to educate their members about the medical dangers of the nuclear fuel cycle, with particular reference to uranium mining. While living in the United States from 1977 to 1986, she played a major role in re-invigorating as President, Physicians for Social Responsibility, an organization of 23,000 doctors committed to educating their colleagues about the dangers of nuclear power, nuclear weapons and nuclear war. On trips abroad she helped start similar medical organizations in many other countries. The international umbrella group (International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War) won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1985. She also founded the Women’s Action for Nuclear Disarmament (WAND) in the US in 1980. Returning to Australia in 1987, Dr Caldicott ran for Federal Parliament as an independent. Defeating Charles Blunt, leader of the National Party, through preferential voting she ultimately lost the election by 600 votes out of 70,000 cast. She moved back to the United States in 1995, where she lectured at the New School for Social Research on the Media, Global Politics and the Environment; hosted a weekly radio talk show on WBAI (Pacifica) in New York; and was the Founding President of the STAR (Standing for Truth About Radiation) Foundation on Long Island. Dr Caldicott has received many prizes and awards for her work, including the Lannan Foundation’s 2003 Prize for Cultural Freedom and twenty one honorary doctoral degrees. She was personally nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Linus Pauling – himself a Nobel Laureate. The Smithsonian has named Dr Caldicott as one of the most influential women of the 20th Century. She has written for numerous publications and has authored seven books. Dr Caldicott currently divides her time between Australia and the US where she lectures widely. In year 2001, she founded the US-based Nuclear Policy Research Institute (NPRI), which became Beyond Nuclear. Currently, Dr Caldicott is President of The Helen CaldicottFoundation/NuclearFreePlanet.org, which initiates symposiums and other educational projects to inform the public and the media of the dangers of nuclear power and weapons. The mission of the Foundation is education to action, and the promotion of a nuclear-energy and weapons-free, renewable energy powered, world. The Foundation’s most recent symposium, co-sponsored by Physicians for Social Responsibility was held at the New York Academy of Medicine in March 2013, 2013. It was entitled The Medical and Environmental Consequences of Fukushima helencaldicottfoundation.org, download at http://www.totalwebcasting.com/view/?id=hcf. A book – "Crisis Without End" — emanating from the conference proceedings and edited by Dr. Caldicott was published by The New Press in 2014.

THE ATOM AND THE ENVIRONMENT NUCLEAR INDUSTRY MOVIE 71722
 
21:40
Produced in the late 1960s or early 1970s before the Three Mile Island accident changed the American public's opinion about nuclear energy, "The Magic of the Atom: The Atom and the Environment" describes nuclear power and atomic research, and its impact on the environment, in highly positive terms. As the narrator states: "The fight for the preservation of the earth's environment goes on, and one very valuable weapon in that fight is the magic of the atom." Various careers in nuclear energy and nuclear engineering, while showing how atomic power represents a form of "clean energy" that is much safer for the environment than coal and oil-burning power plants. Nuclear research is also shown, for example Dr. T. Roy Fukuto's work creating insecticides at U.C. Riverside, work performed to identify the source of oil slicks using neutron activation analysis, work with radioactive cesium at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and tests using radioactive sand at Pt. Mugu, California to determine rates of beach erosion. The film concludes with a discussion of the future of nuclear energy and atomic bombs -- which can be used in constructing underground chambers for storage purposes.

Permits for a uranium mine in Mohave County are currently suspended after recent test result show high soil contamination. The Pinenut Mine air pollution permits are currently suspended after soil samples results were four times higher than when previously measured in 2011. The recent results are from test done in July and Oct. of last year. The Pinenut Mine is owned by Energy Fuel Resources which also own Canyon and EZ Mines. The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality asked Energy Fuel Resources to boost measures that limit the spread of radioactive dust. Other preventive measures include mandating expanded soil testing before renewing the company's air pollution permits.

WUS 2015 Impacts of the Fukushima nuclear accident : 4 years later
 
40:57
KATSUMI FURISTU (JAPAN) Expert in radiation and genetics, Hyogo Collefe of Medecine, cofounder of the Chernobyl Relief Group of Kansai, former member of the Investigation committee of A-bomb survivors ARNIE GUNDERSEN (USA) International specialist on nuclear safety, former nuclear industry senior vice-president, author of a best-seller on the Fukushima accident, current engineer in chief with Fairewinds Energy Education THE SYMPOSIUM The World Uranium Symposium will address issues arising from the nuclear fuel chain, from mining uranium to its end-uses and byproducts for civilian or military purposes. Both scientific and community-based, the Symposium is organized around the following themes: health, environment, economy, ethics, governance, human rights and the rights of indigenous peoples. Open to the public, the symposium had hosted more than 300 people per day from 14 to 16 April 2015, and had included local, national and international representatives from the sectors of health, research, industry, education, civil society, policy makers and indigenous communities. local, national and/or international media were present. All presentations of the symposium will be posted in electronic formats (text and / or videos) after the Symposium, in French and / or English. • April 14 (Day 1): Uranium mines and the nuclear life cycle : health and environmental issues • April 15 (Day 2): Civil and military nuclear : ethics, economics and political issues • April 16 (Day 3): Human rights, indigenous peoples' rights and governance issues ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED The Symposium is jointly organized by Physicians for Global Survival (1985 Nobel Peace Prize), the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, Nature Québec, the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility and the Coalition pour que le Québec ait meilleure mine. It also receives support from the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (Swiss chapter), the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Sustainable Development Institute, the Cree Nation of Mistissini, MiningWatch Canada, and a number of other local, national and international partners. CONTEXT The Symposium is occurring at a time when many organizations and governments question the future ofnuclear power, currently providing about 11% of the world’s electricity. The year 2015 also marks the seventieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the corresponding United Nations negotiations of the Non Proliferation Treaty for the prevention and the abolition of nuclear arms. It will also see the tabling on a new UN treaty on climate change. Canada is one of the largest producers and exporters of uranium worldwide, yet its nuclear energy output is in relative decline. Only two provinces still operate nuclear reactors: Ontario and New Brunswick. While uranium has been primarily mined from Saskatchewan, the provinces of British Columbia and Nova Scotia have officially banned uranium mining. Quebec recently shut down its sole nuclear reactor and has tasked the Bureau d’audiences publiques sur l’environnement (BAPE) with conducting an investigation on issues related to uranium mining. It is expected to release its report by May 20 2015. The Symposium aims to tackle these different issues and to provide recommendations to decision makers to better ensure protection for the human health, global security and a safe environment

New Satellite Images Reveal Activity at North Korea Nuclear Test Site
 
02:50
Commercial satellite imagery of the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site from April 19 indicates probable trailers near the North Portal, the tunnel that North Korea appears to have been preparing for a nuclear test. While no recent dumping is observed, there are at least five mining carts along the tracks leading to the spoil pile and one probable small equipment trailer adjacent to the support building. A net canopy remains in place, presumably concealing equipment, and the pumping of water out of the tunnel to maintain an environment optimal for instrumentation and stemming seems to have ceased.

What Crashed During The Tunguska Event?
 
03:47
The Tunguska River, Russia. at 7 14 in the morning on June the 30th 1908, an mysterious, unexplained and deadly event occurred. during which, there was an enormous explosion. It has been estimated that the explosion was equal to more than 2,000 Hiroshima atom bombs, and for over a hundred years, no one has been able to figure out what caused it. . At around breakfast time mr Semenov was sitting outside his house at Vanavara Trading Post, about 40 miles south of the edge of the explosion, he recalls the event, suddenly seeing directly to the north, over Onkoul's Tunguska Road, the sky split in two. fire appeared high and wide over the forest. the split in the sky grew larger, and the entire northern side was covered with fire. At that moment, I became so hot that I couldn't bear it, as if my shirt was on fire. from the northern side, where the fire was, came strong heat, I wanted to tear off my shirt and throw it down, but then the sky shut closed, and a strong boom sounded, I was thrown a few metres. I lost my senses for a moment, then my wife ran out and led me to the house. After that such noise came, as if rocks were falling or cannons were firing, the earth shook, and when I was on the ground, I pressed my head down, fearing rocks would land on me. When the sky opened up, hot wind raced between the houses, which left traces in the ground like pathways, and it damaged the crops. this witness testimony was recorded in 1930 by Leonid Kulik's expedition. Although for many years scientists thought it was probably a meteor, the lack of evidence has led to numerous speculations ranging from UFO’s to black holes. to this day, no one knows for sure what caused the explosion. During the explosion the fireball that ensued, witnessed by the handful of terrified, distant onlookers, a fireball witnessed as falling from the sky, was later estimated to have been many miles wide. What caused the Tunguska explosion? And most importantly what is buried at the epicentre of the event, or what was left on the earth. whatever it is, for the past 100 years the only vegetation capable of surviving the locations environment is grass. The sheer force of the event destroyed trees far and wide, near ground zero damages were similar to those registered during atmospheric nuclear tests in the 1950s and 1960s. The trees directly below the explosion were stripped of their bark and snapped flat, while trees farther away were knocked over and uprooted. Interestingly, the explosions pattern was in the shape of a butterfly. The Tunguska event is the largest impact event ever recorded on earth. Studies have yielded different estimates of the objects size, depending on whether the body was a comet, a denser asteroid, or something else entirely. a team of researchers published analysis results of micro-samples from a peat bog near the centre of the affected area showing fragments that may be of meteorologic origin. whether these fragments have been found to contain alien pollutants, has not been disclosed, but the physical evidence at the site would suggest a hostile chemical was released during the event, which even after a hundred years is still having a drastic effect on the landscape. It is estimated that the Tunguska explosion knocked down some 80 million trees over an area of 2,150 square kilometres, and that the shock wave from the blast would have measured 5.0 on the Richter magnitude scale. Whatever it was, this thing was BIG, also, there is clearly something that still remains at the location, and it isn’t friendly to life. https://www.psi.edu/epo/siberia/siberia.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tunguska_event

Fukushima Meltdown & The Hidden World Of Nuclear With Nuke Expert Dana Durnford
 
01:33:00
Japan's Kansai Electric To Gut 2 Nuclear Reactors As Energy Demand Stagnating . Why is it that being a part of nuclear means it turns seemingly normal caring people into heartless monsters and killers .The cover picture is of women in the Fukushima prefecture with high level radiated fruit for sale . Why is it when people become pro nuclear like a nuclear scientist or student or people who work in the industry immediately refuse to acknowledge nuclear effects and claim its like walking in sunshine or eating a banana . If they work for media that report on nuclear or work for uranium mining or the notorious vicious uranium stocks and bizarre inbreeds from the industry end up in nuke university or work for govt they claim then nuclear is like potato chips and flying on a airplane like everyone is too stupid to have a conversation like they are so much netter than all life in the universe like they are the chosen ones and only deception is worthy of in their reply's . their contempt for you and all life is blatantly obvious . Japans energy demand is stagnation they don,t ever need nuclear , they would have to idiots to even suggest nuclear when they can,t even solve Fukushima basic problems . So another 2 mass murdering nuke machines belching man made radiation pollution is over , this is a great day for all life on earth but they will never be able to repair the damage those murder machines have already done to earth . We will cover how OSAKA japan was also hit with very high radiation . Japan hideous odious media worked full time to cover it up and play it down . its like a sickness or illness except it makes people into killers , nuclear is a disease .

Survival Ebooks Damage and Destruction Atomic Weapons Survival
 
00:17
Damage and Destruction http://www.survivalebooks.com/ "Damage and Destruction" Video is a collage of scenes from the first several nuclear weapons testing operations which graphically show the destructive forces of nuclear weapons and the damages they can inflict. Specific military and civilian effects tests were conducted in these operations to gain experimental data on objects placed various distances from ground zero. For the military effects tests, jeeps, trucks, aircraft, tanks, artillery pieces, and fuel tanks were placed in the destructive paths of nuclear shots, which produced vast amounts of heat, blast, and radiation. Of a more controversial nature, thousands of military personnel were placed in foxholes and trenches about six miles from the center of the blast. The soldiers were there to help determine if military tactics and techniques at the time were adequate for the new environment created by a nuclear blast. Also, military leaders wanted to see if servicemen could function and withstand the psychological stress while participating in a nuclear weapons exercise. To gain experimental data for the civilian Civil Defense Agency, houses, rows of trees, wood and plastic products, warehouses, railroad tracks and cars, and bridges were placed in harm's way. The information gained from these tests was used to help develop the nation's strategies for protecting the civilian population, industries, businesses, schools, and hospitals in case of a nuclear attack. www.survivalebooks.com survival manuals, military manuals, USA Army manuals, USMC Marines manuals, USCG Coastguard manuals, USACE Army Corps of Engineers, survival manual, USN Navy manuals, USAF Air Force manuals, FM field manuals, TM technical manuals, special forces, Navy Advancement programs, military training courses on disk, special operations, army rangers, AK47 rifle, SKS rifles, survival schools, warfare combat skills, aviation, artillery, armor, mines, EOD, military police, sniper rifles, civil disturbance, first aid, Army Rangers School, NATO, military aircraft manuals, military helicopter manuals, military vehicles manuals, military weapons manuals, FEMA, M16 rifle, CIA World Factbook, military intelligence operations, sniper schools, Army trucks.

Downwind: A People’s History of the Nuclear West by Sarah Alisabeth Fox
 
01:00:05
Part of Utah Archives Month 2015 at the Utah State Archives. See all events at http://utaharchivesmonth.org and http://www.facebook.com/utaharchivesmonth. 2:35 Justin Sorenson introduction of Downwinders of Utah Project http://www.lib.utah.edu/services/geospatial/downwinders 5:25 Freelance writer, editor, and folk-historian, Sarah Alisabeth Fox, will present on her latest book, Downwind: A People’s History of the Nuclear West. In her work, Fox highlights the personal cost of nuclear testing and uranium extraction in the American West through extensive interviews with downwinders: the Native American and non-Native residents of the Great Basin region affected by nuclear environmental contamination and nuclear-testing fallout. These downwinders tell tales of communities ravaged by cancer epidemics, farmers and ranchers economically ruined by massive crop and animal deaths, and Native miners working in dangerous conditions without proper safety equipment so that the government could surreptitiously study the effects of radiation on humans. Fox will give special attention to the wealth of archival sources and collections she drew on in the course of writing Downwind. Please note: Due to an equipment malfunction, about half-way into the video a crackling shows up in the audio. We're sorry for any difficulties in listening to the presentation.
