The houses would be saturated with high power microwaves


We appealed it because it is was going to be installed trackside. The track is only a gardens length to the one side of Wyvern Close and it was my opinion that these houses would be saturated with high power microwaves. One of our neighbours from that side of the road has just had a baby and her nursery would have been only about 20m from this mast. The poor kid would have been sleeping in high powered microwaves.

Our MP John Penrose is already concerned about Masts so you can imagine his surprise when we let him know that four were being erected in Weston and they don't need planning. He was quick on the case and worked well with our councillor (they are both tory!) and together with a persistent local newspaper reporter managed to get Network Rail's ear. Mr Penrose campaigned Network Rail and they agreed to consult with our planners who told them it was irresponsible to mount it so close to dwellings. The mast has now been moved about 500m further down the track in a coach park. We will of course still have an increase in Microwaves but as the most is 500m away I feel more comfortable about the power level.

Häufung missgebildeter Kinder: Schwere Vorwürfe gegen bayerisches Atomkraftwerk Gundremmingen

Der Bund Naturschutz (BN) erhebt schwere Vorwürfe gegen den Betrieb des bayerischen Atomkraftwerks Gundremmingen bei Ulm. "Tricksen und Vertuschen" sei "die bevorzugte Kommunikationsform" auch in Bayern. Zentrale Probleme des Reaktorbetriebs seien bis heute nicht aufgeklärt, kritisiert der Vorsitzende des Bund Naturschutz, Hubert Weiger. "Nie aufgeklärt wurde eine massive Häufung missgebildeter Kinder in den Landkreisen östlich von Gundremmingen." Deren Auftreten sei zeitlich mit dem Betrieb des Reaktors Gundremmingen A zusammen gefallen. Die Bayerische Staatsregierung hätte eine Studie veröffentlicht, "wonach es sich um tausende registrierter Fälle handelte, über den langjährigen Durchschnitt hinaus".

Senate Defies Bush; Approves Tobacco Tax Hike to Fund Child Health

"In an overwhelming majority of 17 to 4, and in defiance of a threatened veto by President Bush, the US Senate Finance Committee approved a bill to expand child health care using a large increase in tobacco tax. Most of the Republicans on the Committee joined the Democrats to vote in favour of the bill," reports Medical News Today.

All the President's Enablers

"In a coordinated public relations offensive, the White House is using reliably friendly pundits - amazingly, they still exist - to put out the word that President Bush is as upbeat and confident as ever," writes Paul Krugman in the The New York Times. "It might even be true. What I don't understand is why we're supposed to consider Mr. Bush's continuing confidence a good thing."

Overhaul Plan for Vote System Will Be Delayed

"Overhauling voting systems before next year's presidential election had once been a top Democratic priority, primarily to allow greater accountability and be certain that all votes registered on computerized touch-screen systems were counted. But state and local elections officials told Congress they could not make the changes in time for the balloting in November 2008, particularly in light of the extra workload involved in preparing for next year's much-earlier presidential primary season," reports Christopher Drew of The New York Times.

Democrats Move Toward Contempt Against Bolten

Robert Schmidt reports for Bloomberg: "House Democrats, escalating a battle with the White House, took the first step in seeking to hold Bush's chief of staff in contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena requesting documents on the firing of eight US prosecutors. Voting 7-3 along party lines, a House Judiciary subcommittee approved a resolution rejecting executive privilege claims made by Joshua Bolten in refusing to turn over emails and memos on the firings."

Die Störfälle in den deutschen AKWs

Umweltinstitut München e.V. - Newsletter vom 20. Juli 2007

Thema: - Die Störfälle in den deutschen AKWs

Die Pannenserie in den deutschen Atomkraftwerken Krümmel und Brunsbüttel hat der Atomlobby stark zugesetzt. Dumm für sie, dass genau in dieser Zeit auch noch ein Erdbeben in Japan das weltgrößte AKW beschädigt.

Das Umweltinstitut München hat die Störfälle samt den Vertuschungen, den Falschangaben und den Dreistigkeiten der Atombefürworter mit Presseerklärungen kritisch begleitet:

Am 5. Juli forderte das Umweltinstitut, dass das AKW Krümmel nicht mehr ans Netz darf, weil der Betreiber Vattenfall in unverantwortlicher Weise das tatsächliche Ausmaß zu verschleiern versuchte. Da Vattenfall nicht nur für die Pannen-AKWs Krümmel und Brunsbüttel verantwortlich ist, sondern auch für den bauähnlichen Skandalreaktor Forsmark in Schweden, ist es höchste Zeit, dem Betreiber die Betriebsgenehmigungen für seine Atomkraftwerke zu entziehen. Die Störfälle sollten als Chance genutzt werden, um endlich eine echte Energiewende einzuläuten.

Kurz darauf wurde bekannt, dass auch in Brunsbüttel das Ausmaß des Störfalls heruntergespielt wurde. Nach dem Brand hatte sich zunehmend Wasserstoff gesammelt, was an den Beinahe GAU im Jahr 2001 erinnerte. Damals hatte eine Wasserstoffexplosion in Brunsbüttel eine Rohrleitung auf einer Länge von mehreren Metern zerfetzt. Wir wiesen darauf hin, dass das bayerische AKW Isar 1 bauähnlich dem Brunsbütteler ist und es nur eine Frage der Zeit sei, dass auch hier Probleme auftauchen. Die Forderung nach Laufzeitverlängerungen von alten, maroden Atommeilern muss vom Tisch.

Schließlich kritisierten wir die Dreistigkeiten verschiedener Politiker und der Atomlobby, die inmitten dieser Pannen und Vertuschungen die Atomkraft weiter vorantreiben wollen und sogar bei der Sicherheit Abstriche inkauf nehmen. Dass in der obersten Etage von Vattenfall Köpfe rollten ist zwar zu begrüßen - hier hat es keinesfalls die falschen erwischt -, aber damit ist das Grundproblem der Atomenergieerzeugung nicht gelöst: Sie ist hoch riskant, ist nicht beherrschbar und muss deshalb beendet werden.

The Free Liberal
by US Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX)


The recent defeat of the amnesty bill in the Senate came after outraged Americans made it clear to the political elite that they would not tolerate this legislation, which would further erode our national sovereignty. Similarly, polls increasingly show the unpopularity of the Iraq war, as well as of the Congress that seems incapable of ending it. Because some people who vocally oppose amnesty are supportive of the war, the ideological connection between support of the war and amnesty is often masked. If there is a single word explaining the reasons why we continue to fight unpopular wars and see legislation like the amnesty bill nearly become law, that word is ‘globalism’...

Framing the Russians

by Justin Raimondo


The media has been rife with declarations that the cold war is back, and the spy-jinks we’re being told about — the Brits apparently planted a recording device inside a rock, and positioned it on a Russian street to unknown purposes — are like something out of a John Le Carre novel. Le Carre, you’ll remember, writes of multi-layered conspiracies, like those Russian wooden dolls that contain several smaller dolls within, and this model is pretty much what we’re looking at when it comes to the Litvinenko affair. The Russians, for their part, have their own convoluted tale to tell, with Lugovoi accusing the Brits of running an extensive spy network within Russia, and at least one other person coming forward to confirm that, yes, they were recruited by the Brits to spy on the Motherland. What’s important to realize, however, is that, whatever the credibility or motives behind these charges and counter-charges, the very real geo-political consequences of this row are becoming increasingly serious — and dangerous...

How empires end

by Pat Buchanan


Responding to the call of Pope Urban II at Claremont in 1095, the Christian knights of the First Crusade set out for the Holy Land. In 1099, Jerusalem was captured. As their port in Palestine, the Crusaders settled on Acre on the Mediterranean. There they built the great castle that was overrun by Saladin in 1187, but retaken by Richard the Lion-Hearted in 1191. Acre became the capital of the Kingdom of Jerusalem and the stronghold of the Crusader state, which fell to the Mameluks in a bloody siege in 1291. The Christians left behind were massacred. The ruins of Acre are now a tourist attraction. Any who have visited this last outpost of Christendom in the Holy Land before Gen. Allenby marched into Jerusalem in 1917 cannot — on reading of the massive U.S. embassy rising in Baghdad — but think of Acre...

Losing talent for no good reason

No Force, No Fraud

If there has ever been a decisive lesson to be learned about making a nation strong, it is that lesson of America … welcome the immigrants and give them the opportunity to succeed. No matter where they come from … no matter how poor, no matter how uneducated, no matter how alien to our way of life … they have come here and improved our society. It’s a lesson we’ve almost lost. For a nation built by immigrants to turn around and become restrictive against future immigrants is an insult to our own ancestors. It is simply un-American. It is a lost opportunity for all of us...

Blacks imprisoned at 5x rate of whites

Arizona Republic


Blacks in the United States are imprisoned at more than five times the rate of Anglos, and Hispanics are locked up at nearly double the Anglo rate, according to a study released Wednesday by a criminal justice policy group. The report by the Sentencing Project, a Washington-based think tank, found that states in the Midwest and Northeast have the greatest Black-to-Anglo disparity in incarceration. Iowa had the widest disparity in the nation, imprisoning Blacks at more than 13 times the rate of Anglos. Such figures ‘reflect a failure of social and economic interventions to address crime effectively,’ as well as racial bias in the justice system, said Marc Mauer, the Sentencing Project’s executive director...
