93 One Liner Lies of the Nuclear Cartel

Classic One Liner Lies of Nuke

combomelt, from ENE used my list to create an awesome video, please watch it and drop a comment,

Some fresh lies of nuke:
  1.  High frequency high power radar arrays are more globally harmful than man-made radioactive nuclear ionizing toxic chemical waste? (Lie maker, Dark Energy)
  2.  Because PV panels get weaker and weaker each year, you don't have to worry about someone prying them out of your cold clammy hands, they self pry to nothing.....debunk--
    Yeah, about .25% per year.So if you have a 20 panel system, say 300W each = 6000 W and that's 15W lost per year. Over 20 years, that's 300W, so you effectively loss the output equal to one panel.  Efficiency on equipment and lighting is increasing faster than .25% per year, so unless you increase your load, you will never have a problem.
    And the system is warranted for 25 years, and will probably last 40, there are no moving parts.
  3. Fukushima was preventable, therefore don't worry the new nuclear will be totally safe, even fail safe.
  4. "Fear does 10 to 100 times more damage than radiation" (Lie maker Michael Mann
  5. Hey Brian, do you or your friends drink beer or BBQ your food? Both of those activities cause more cancer than nuclear power.  Does this mean you have no regard for life? (Lie Making attributed to greenthinker2012)
  6. Nuclear is the only viable, long-term option. More people have died from Solar and Wind energy than Nuclear energy. And that includes Chernobyl and Fukushima. (Lie Making attributed to TimS on The Hill,
  7.  I am not a troll.......
  8. Cancer is skyrocketing exactly because renewables' use of rare-metals that contain natural traces of radioactive ores.  (Lie Making attributed to TimS on The Hill,
  9. The world should stop making Solar and Wind because China made a mess to mine the materials needed, and that this mess is equivalent to the nuclear waste created in the normal operations of the nuclear industry, and we can also ignore the uranium mining operation used for nuclear material. 
  10. One other thing to keep in mind is that our current power grid is designed to deal with constant, steady loads that vary little over the course of a day (or at least in a predictable cycle). Wind and solar are just too intermittent for the grid to easily handle.
    Yippie, another "lie of nuke"
    Load vary constantly during the day and night, and nuke is god awful at load following.

    In contrast, solar provides energy to the grid when the grid needs it the most, and solar owners buy energy from the grid when the grid needs the "sales" the most at night.     Its a perfect complement to the grid.  

    But thanks....I added it to the list of one liner lies of nuke.
  11.  All the worlds nuke fuel waste to date, all preserved well out of the environment, would fit on a football field, a mininscule fraction of the deadly toxic forever solar waste now leaching into water supplies from land fills everywhere.
  12. If you want solar PV you have to install lots of very expensive batteries.
  13. Only 1 major accident every 1,000,000 years ( hmmm or make that 10)
  14. Putting the nuclear waste buried on a peninsula jutting into Lake Huron is the "best solution"
  15. "It's just old gloves and rags" at WIPP 
  16. You can't prove that nuclear caused the increase in cancer because there were other industrial things going on also.    Debunk: These charts make it real clear 
  17. Don't be worried over nuclear. Its really small potatoes in the grand scheme of things.
  18. The lie about energy storage technology MUST be invented before shutting down nuke "Yes, we MUST DECLARE, our first Terra-Joule storage media, to implement it. And we must IMPLEMENT it, prior to shutting down the gawdawful NPP."
  19. The accident was on the "non nuclear" side of the plant.   Sheesh, heard this one 3 times in 3 months. 
  20. "Solar Energy has no future because it takes more energy to create the solar panels, than the solar panel produces in it's lifetime"
  21. "Nobody could have predicted such rare occurrence." 
  22. "We were previously unaware of problems." 
  23. "Our best and brightest people are on the job." 
  24. "It was only a minor incident." 
  25. "Our customers are important to us." 
  26. FactCheckers's one liner: expose children to radiation so they will be immune to radiation later in life. 
  27. Troll at ENE: no thanks. You have your own anti nuke jihad ..I don't care for radicalized soldiers.
  28. There have been no releases from the plant above normal levels.
  29. The only thing the anti nukes have are FUD fear uncertainty doubt
  30. You are also wrong about the 30 Bq/lb being harmful, I weigh under 200 lbs and I emit 6000 Bq of radiation from the naturally occurring isotopes in my body.
  31. stock here:  just the amount of "low level" waste they want to still put into WIPP, is enough to, if spread evenly among all humans, animals, fish, plankton, plants of all sorts, to bring the entire world up to 70 Bq/lb.  And animals at 30 Bq/lb start having severe health problems.   I gave you the whole quote so you can understand the lie in context for items 17 and 18
  32. There is enough water in an Olympic swimming pool if spread evenly among all humans to drown all of humanity.
  33.  There is enough salt in a single salt mine that if spread evenly among all humans would cause electrolyte imbalance severe enough to kill all of humanity.
  34. There is no such thing as a moderated prompt criticality 
  35. Fukushima was preventable, therefore we have learned so much that we have made existing nuclear safe.
  36. If you walk on some of the worlds "therapeutic" beaches, and you track that naturally radioactive sand in your house, the dose rate in your domicile and total dose integrated over time to its occupants will be greater than most of Fukushima. (Lie Maker atomsforpeace1)
  37. Also from the atomtroll: In reality the annual deaths due to war has decreased. The dramatic end to WWII saved millions of lives from the impending invasion of Japan, Nuclear bombs saves lives--an inconvenient truth about it all,
  38. No one died at Fukushima, the 5 lethal doses was just a mistake that the NRC put into writing, it was a misunderstanding in the fog of war. 
  39. Myth I – The Fukushima accident is a “Triumph” of nuclear technology, it proves it works safely Reality: It raises some important questions about aspects of nuclear safety 
  40. Myth II – Only 56 people were killed by the Chernobyl accident Reality: The death toll from Chernobyl was many times higher, in the thousands or possibly tens of thousands  
  41. Myth III – Radiation isn’t that dangerous at all, it’s over exaggerated by the media, why the impact of Chernobyl was no worse than a few dozen chest x-rays each, and TMI was no worse than you’d get eating a banana Reality:  The effects of radiation from artifical sources is potentially quite serious  
  42. Myth IV – Nuclear power is cheaper than any of the alternatives Reality: Its actually more expensive than most of the alternatives! 
  43. Myth VII – We can’t build Renewables fast enough only nuclear power plants can be built quickly enough to prevent climate change Reality: The current build rate of nuclear power stations is a small fraction of the annual build rate of renewables, even the maximum ever build rate of NPP’s in the 70′s is still exceeded by the currrent build rate of renewable systems
  44.  Myth VIII – Yes, you’ve highlighted several problems but you see once we get these new fast reactors working all these problems will be solved Reality: Fast-reactors are a failed series of white elephants that are unlikely to ever work
  45. Myth IX – All these problems will be solved when we develop Fusion, which will happen in the near future Reality: While we’re making progress, its far to early to say when Nuclear Fusion will become commercially viable….if ever!

  46.  Nuclear is a "special power" so people should "act for" nuclear and simply pay us more money even though the plant is not economic/competitive
  47. Stop press, Bonus feature! Myth XI  – We need to use MOX and reprocessing to stop Terrorists getting their hands on Plutonium in the future Reality: This statement merely shows how out of touch the nuclear industry is….with reality!
  48. stock here: "If you are continually intaking CS137, then the idea of a short biological half life loses it's minimization effect.  You come to a steady state level in your body, and it can be very dangerous."
    Ecowatch Troll greenthinker: In order to accumulate enough CS137 to make a statistically significant change in cancer rate you would have to eat a kilogram of tea leaves every week, since between the lowered concentration of CS137 that seeps into the tea water and the absorption rate (~5%) you have absolutely miniscule amounts entering your body.
  49. Troll silliness from the atomsforpeace monster: Fukushima wasn't a nuclear explosion because the neutrons would have been seen as a large spike on plant instruments.   Yeah right, plant instruments eh?   They didn't even have car batteries to operate DC valves and the troll pretends they had functioning plant instruments.
  50. Tea is the only thing with Cesium that matters
  51.  Second hand smoke is more dangerous, so you can ignore radioactivity.

They lie to our face and think we are stupid.    There will be a backlash, a tipping point.     These bronto cows will be TIPPED, lol

Another lie --about energy storage from item 4 above

Yes, we MUST DECLARE, our first Terra-Joule storage media, to implement it. And we must IMPLEMENT it, prior to shutting down the gawdawful NPP.

I guess that is a 2 liner lie of nuke, let me address the lie.

Implication that we must have Terr-Joule storage, invented, and built, before we shut down nuclear power plants.     What utter rubbish, with simple conservation we could shut down all NPP in USA tomorrow.    And we don't need Terra-Joule size storage, storage to even out renewable sources can be much more discrete and distributed, just like the power generated from PV.    For instance, your car battery can be part of the storage solution.  

No we don't need to implement EVERY solution to the future in order to start shutting down nuclear now.  Phase it out, be smart about it, phase out the worst nuke and worst coal simultaneously.

Well I added another one liner lie.    Rod Adams helped me find this lie when one of his twitter buddies did a post on how  solar energy never has a chance for the  future because making the solar energy devices takes more energy than they produce in their lifetime.   Wow, the levels these pimps will stoop to to promote their 'precious' nuclear radiation cartel.

The reality is that for PV panels, it takes about 6 months of energy production of the device in order to offset the energy used in producing the device.    And the lifetime is at least 30 years.

The lie in one liner form
"Solar Energy has no future because it takes more energy to create the solar panels, than the solar panel produces in it's lifetime"

You can probably use the search function to find some backup to each of these lies of nuclear.    When someone, be it media, a research organization, a government speaker, whoever, starts pimping out one of these lies, then you can start reading their material in a new, more suspicious light.

As a future project, I intend on following each sentence with a link to a concise debunk of each of these lies.    Its like shooting fish in a barrel.   Anyone who wants to volunteer a link and debunk, send as a comment.

And last, but not least, we get some some quality rhetoric and wisdom from the latest troll infesting ENENEWS and here----laughable.    At least socref could pretend to be civilized.

And try saying that to say, a Grizzly Bear, or perhaps, Leukemia.      What doesn't kill you sometimes just makes you weaker...that  is the way that radiation works. 
    30 Ways The Nuclear Industry Deceives Everyone; via @AGreenRoad

Debunk to item

"…The most illuminating perspective, however, comes from top World War II American military leaders. The conventional wisdom that the atomic bomb saved a million lives is so widespread that … most Americans haven’t paused to ponder something rather striking to anyone seriously concerned with the issue: Not only did most top U.S. military leaders think the bombings were unnecessary and unjustified, many were morally offended by what they regarded as the unnecessary destruction of Japanese cities and what were essentially noncombat populations. Moreover, they spoke about it quite openly and publicly.
Shortly before his death General George C. Marshall quietly defended the decision, but for the most part he is on record as repeatedly saying that it was not a military decision, but rather a political one."

    1. Whoremesis, the process by which our best and brightest whore themselves out for research dollars, and get "findings" which support the objectives of the 1% pyschopathic powers that be

  3. Nuclear power is too cheap to meter.

  4. You are demented and delusional. The list is a sign of someone with little training in nuclear engineering and science.

    1. Hello Troll, I got your IP address.

    2. Yes, because "training in nuclear engineering and science" accomplished 90,000+ dead in Japan and prevented Chernobyl and Fukushima, is that it?

    3. Previous poster at 2-16 6:44 pm. You are the deficient one. NukePro's blog is a good service- informative- logical- clear- compassionate- newsworthy - useful - intelligent. What do you think you are proving with your public besides parading stupidity? You are the one who is a guest in this place. You are the one who does not need to be here. Many follow this blog and support it.

  5. "There will always be power and backup generators to prevent a meltdown."
    "Humanity can contain the atom and it won't kill the innocent."

    Japan 1945-present day proves those two aren't true.

    Breaking the atom was the ultimate Pandora's box for humanity.

  6. Anyone who is opposed to nuclear power is just a 'fearmonger'

    Anyone who talks about the dangers of nuclear power is 'fearmongering'.

  7. I miss one hilarious lie; the radiation on the us coast is not from fuku but probably radio active plastic eating utensils. :)

  8. "No one died from Fukushima"

    1. Yep, always a classic, even though FOIA document show NRC documenting 5 dead from lethal radiation blast.

  9. For multiple debunking links around the 74 lies...that could easily go up to 200

  10. The radiation is well within acceptable levels (If everyone in the US got the "acceptable level", you could expect tens of thousands of fatal cancers every year, even using the generally used LNT model)

    1. Yep, the peons who pay the taxes have "acceptable levels" of expiration as long as the campaign contributions keep coming in..... REALITY

  11. Whenever they want, they just raise the acceptable levels. They always use cesium as a reference. They always refer to dose, in other words, external irradiation, but never injestion. Even if transuranics were not radioactive, they are still highly toxic heavy metals.
    And you wouldnt get me to injest 1/10th of a gram of any of them. As for cost:
    Figure in mining, enrichment, transport, security, storage, not to mention waste management, cause there is none, and watt for watt nuclear is the most expensive by far.
    To be fair, "A nuclear reactor cannot explode like a nuclear bomb" is accurate.
    By several orders of magnitude. I do not accept Arnies "prompt criticality" theory. However, #3 certainly suffered a high velocity explosion. Something neither steam nor hydrogen can do.


    Quote: "boffins believe that the solar battery decreases costs by 25 per cent because it apparently eliminates "the loss of electricity that normally occurs when electrons have to travel between a solar cell and an external battery.""

    Bye bye, "nukular" power. So much for their "precious". We are so screwed considering all wastes.
    GAME OVER Insert bitcoin to continue boring us to tears, shillery.

    1. Thats funny a UK news agency, reporting on an Ohio State PV project. The pro nukes will spin lies all the way to their grave. After destroying our environment adn genome to boil water and leave a boat load of waste, they just have to be disugusted that normal people can generate electricity from sunlight,

    3. @Anonymous (October 6, 2014 at 6:04 PM)

      Curious; are you as an off-topic anonymous commentard claiming copyright on your IP Address of which you actively publicly disseminate?

      Good job in talking to an attorney from Arizona for a matter that can only be adjudicated in Santa Clara County, California by the way. That's got to be expensive.

      How is the weather in Arizona anyway?

    4. Have you even read "Goggle"'s Privacy Policy or even their Terms?
      It would appear that in-fact no, you haven't.

      That's is hilarious, by the way, complaining about a lack of privacy whilst using "Goggle"'s services. :lol

    5. That particular link does NOT resolve an address other than the following.


      Nice JavaScript BS. Yamashita smiles on you.

      One question is it privileged information?
      No, it would appear that you have knowingly publicly disseminated it, and continue to do so.

      Now, please stop cyberstalking us. Cease and desist, s'il vous plaît.
      Behave or begone.

    10. Folks, IP addresses are public and *must be* public for the Internet to work. "IP" itself means "Internet Protocol".
      An IP address *must* be sent along so that the receiver IP can reply to the sender IP.
      Most ISP's have a pool of addresses they can use to attach a subscriber to the Internet. It's first-come-first-served, and typically an ISP "recycles" IP addresses when a subscriber logs out. IP addresses are rare at the moment, and a dedicated IP is expensive.

      Of course "" doesn't resolve. Only "" can resolve. That's their *domain name*, as in DNS (Domain Name Services), which is how the Internet maps English names to 32-bit IP addresses. resolves just fine. It's from Wild West Domains. It's name servers are NS1.WIREDTREE.COM ad NS2.WIREDTREE.COM.

    "At the end of 2013, there were more than 12,000 megawatts of photovoltaics and 918 megawatts of CSP in the U.S., according to GTM Research. The U.S. installed 410 megawatts of CSP in 2013 and 517 megawatts in Q1 2014."

    Then there's the WOW process...

  25. Quote: "LED Lighting Becomes Widespread in Japan after N-Accident"

    NoUVIR had some good info on UV & IR output of "white" LEDs.

    (Thanks to NucNews for the links.)

    1. thanks for all the posts Dud

    2. You are welcome. I am a guest here, so here is something else that seemed apt to share. If my brightness diminishes in any way, i trust you should you correct me, btw.

      Quote: "They are so efficient that if the UK switched over to LED lighting, the nation could save 10% of its electricity bill and do without or eight new power stations, said Sir Colin Humphrey, director of research at Cambridge University."

      The inventor of the red LED would like a chat with the Nobel Committee, it would seem. :P

      Seems homes need low-voltage LED lighting power retrofitting for efficiency benefits to be properly realized. Having a power supply on every single bulb may be convenient, but isn't it a waste? How to retrofit existing, though? *(Call in Mike Holmes, of Holmes on Homes, :lol)

    3. Also, should not the inventor(s) of means to restrict UV & IR release in a so-called "white" LED be worthy of award, due to the humanitarian aspect of said work?
      Somebody call the inventor of the Green LED - i'd bet he/she/them would be seeing red too!

      [OT}Should airlines not be researching power-"sun-visors" to counter low-power laser strikes from dumbfockers on the ground? Emergency forward multi-spectral cameras to be deployed if possible during incidents involving restricted vision &/or visibility?[/OT]

    4. What if it were, that i were simply an anonymous worker at McDonalds (am no fan of fast-food, btw)?

      What would that say for Oak Ridge?

      May God have Mercy upon His Children!

  26. Try and trace this to Oak Ridge. You wont get anywhere.

    1. Don't you have something better to do with your time?


    makes the case for 'nuclear weapons' never having existed, and 'nuclear power' being a dumpload. A lot of your remarks seem to me to be shadow-boxing -- attacking your enemy without ever finding if the enemy is lying to you.

  28. To be fair, there is a small downside to solar.
    You need to clean the panels daily for maximum charge generation.

    Pretty deminimus to me, compared to "can't eat from the land, can't drink the water, prolly shouldn;t breath the air, etc.(but enough strontium around you never need sensodyne as yer teef juft wot away aneeway)".

  29. Ya der eh, I clean my panels every 2 or 3 years, or when a pterdactyl takes a big dump, lol

    1. I guess i haven't seen a datasheet for panels in decades, let alone a panel.
      Looks like i'm stuck with Dr. Wattenburgs previous rantings about how you have to clean them daily, and that they only have a usable lifespan of ten years. Bear with me please, i just got over the "nukular" hype within the past four years, for some Fukuppy reason ...

      I am sorry that your mother recently passed on.
      She must have been a decent person to have had you, a man whom stands up for what is right, as a son. May she long live on as positive memories for all whom her life touched, at least.

    2. Please, show me some kind of industry info that cannot hurt your business.
      I am hoping for some kind of confirmation of a 30 year life span. Better yet, a local source of panels!!! :)
      Can i ask the audience for help, or phone a friend for a lifeline? :\

      I'd like to be a millionaire, even a thousanaire. It'd pay for a helluvalotta Fukushima/WIPP/Honeywell iron-on T-shirts and pamphlets with the bright colored reassuring words "Stay out of the rain." for starters.

      Be a pal, and tell me where to go. Err...

    3. @dud, very basic stuff here, I have done 22,000 PV panels and had 3 failures over 9 years. that aint bad.

      My go to panel is the Solarworld (in whatever the latest wattage is, now 275W)

      these are not industry secrets. PV industry does not function on 95% lies like the nuke cartel

  30. Thanks for condolences, yes she was voted by everyone who knew her as "most likely to go to heaven"

    1. Say, could you point me to a data or product sheet, providing it doesn't divulge anything that would or could harm your business.

      Datasheets were (& are) so helpful dealing with Capacitor Plague.
      Datasheets can help one fuse off the Write Enable pin on flash memory controllers.

      I remember somebody once say to me that solar panels couldn't do diddly if applied on top of a 53' semi trailer, for instance.
      I can think of some school districts in California that might argue, at least.

  31. Thank You Good INFO.... TRUTH ........ I AM FIXITSTUPID I've been running solar for nine years it works

    1. Yak the solar deniers are just amazing in the depth of their denial and vacaciousness of their "debunks"

  32. nuclear power will work because human beings are good and intelligent

    1. nuclear power fails because human beings have other traits as well.

      There is not enough margin for err in the design for human err, including ownership & regulators, etc, etc, etc.

      Counterfeit Nuclear parts, anyone?

  33. Quote: "@Stock, do you have this statement for your list of nuclear lies:

    "If EPA is increasing safe levels, it still must be safe"" - October 18, 2014 at 11:20 am"

    1. WHPPSS! That was a quote of Anne.

    2. Ruh Roh....they got to her, lol

    3. OK I got it now, that was her statement of one of the lies of the nuke duh

  34. In regards to space travel beyond Sol's asteroid belt beyond Mars, and upcoming increases in Cosmic Radiation due to Solar magnetic field weakening:

    Quote: "Only nuke power can save us from radiation"
    "The only astronauts who have ever been further from Earth than this were the Apollo moon explorers of the 1960s and 70s, and they went only on brief missions, carefully timed to reduce radiation risks."

    This relates to the "time to 3 per cent Risk of Exposure Induced Death (REID)"

    This type of commentary can be expected from the pro-"nukular" staff at the Reg, in my humble opine, though. Often, such commentary from that source is just plain wrong, imho.

    Quote: "ESA demonstrates - we can do it with solar

    At the distance at which Rosetta will encounter Comet 67P / Churyumov-Gerasimenko, or at which Juno will be doing experiments involving Jupiter or ESA's Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer will work, energy from the Sun is but a small fraction of what it is on Earth.

    Still, it can be effectively utilized for power generation, the ESA declares - because even in the remote outer solar system, there's still enough sunlight to power the smart solar cells it developed for the purpose:

    "The solar cells in Rosetta's solar panels are based on a completely new technology, so-called Low-intensity Low Temperature Cells. Thanks to them, Rosetta is the first space mission to journey beyond the main asteroid belt relying solely on solar cells for power generation.

    "Previous deep-space missions used nuclear RTGs, radioisotope thermal generators. The new solar cells allow Rosetta to operate over 800 million kilometres from the Sun, where levels of sunlight are only 4% those on Earth. The technology will be available for future deep-space, such as ESA's upcoming Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer."" (also available from Enformable)

    "only nukular can spare us from radiation"? what bollocks.

  35. Ya check out the Making of Fuku post, troll shows up, says the last infestation was just a high school project. I logged its IP as Oak Ridge....again. What asshats these things are, LOL

  36. NukePro, thank you for your tireless promotion of sanity!

  37. I would like to address the lie that "nobody died from Fukushima". One of the ways they hide the deaths is , radiation weakens the immune system then some common virus (flu) comes along and kills you , the virus is blamed for the death and the weakened immune system is ignored.
    I want to present evidence that 170k+ people die per year from Fukushima .
    From 2005 to 2010 Japans population increased by 74,816 per year on average , from 2010 to 2015 japans population declined by 106,903 per year , when you factor in migrants (+70k) that comes to -176,903 people per year from 2010 to 2015 . The only thing that changed in Japan that could account for such a huge swing is Fukushima.

    1. Thanks for the comment, indeed radiation does weaken the entire system.

    2. So , what do you think of using the actual population count as an indicator of deaths caused by radiation ? for a 5 year period before Fuku the population was on the rise then suddenly and abruptly the population took a nose dive for a 5 year period after Fuku.

    3. I think as a macro theory its fine, but because Japan has a vast amount of aging population, that would throw off the ability to come to any specific number conclusion. But estimates could be made based on age demographics, etc.

      Sheesh, just the financial impacts are contributing to disease and death, and knowing that the government cares not if they die, also stressful

    4. so i would need to prove increased mortality rate across all age groups after fuku exploded , I'm sure that Abe will hand that info over to just anyone who asks for it. If this was a small shift in population , say 20k-30k i could see why i would need a lot of followup research , but man this is 240,000 people the first year and 170,000 every year after.
      Not a level playing field is it? We have to prove everything we say beyond a shadow of a doubt while the shills say anything they want without a shred of evidence and people believe them.

    5. Indeed, I like your idea, if the statistics could be gotten, but it seems like they are covering up even basic illness rate records, but maybe the death records are easily to find, please try and report back I will make into an article.

  39. I like the soundtrack. Reversed, I guess, just like our prospects for healthy and happy lifestyles! Well done!
