You know how the Big Gas Mafia tells us the pipelines–even the ones built with that defective pipe–won’t blow up? Well, the Big Nuclear Mafia tells the same kinds of lies?
Guess what, Dear Readers! According to Greg Palast, who was the “lead investigator in several government nuclear plant fraud and racketeering investigations,” they are planning to build two new nuclear reactors on the Gulf Coast of Texas.
TOKYO ELECTRIC TO BUILD US NUCLEAR PLANTS
The no-BS info on Japan’s disastrous nuclear operators

New York – March 14, 2011
The Administration, just months ago, asked Congress to provide a $4 billion loan guarantee for two new nuclear reactors to be built and operated on the Gulf Coast of Texas — by Tokyo Electric Power and local partners. As if the Gulf hasn’t suffered enough.
The nuclear facilities must be certified that they will withstand seismic activity. But, all the Big Nuclear Mafia has to do to get certified is lie. Cutting corners saves expenditures and increases your bottom line, don’t you know? Does that sound familiar?
The industry does it all the time.
Palast and his team of investigators caught one in a lie at a facility in NY. And, the liars are the same ones who plan to work with Tokyo Electric Power to build the facilities in Texas.
It gets worse. You know how the Big Gas Mafia tells us the gas emissions are harmless? I can’t even summarize this part but I bet you can guess what’s coming. Just go read it HERE. Then think about what you can do to stop consuming so much.
