Godspeed, little book!

April 28th, 2011

Dear Readers,

There has certainly been a change in the weather. It's irradiated, and nobody likes it.

Opinion polls around the world are running strongly against nuclear power even in France and here in America. And that's despite the official lies, cover-ups, and secrecy that's been going on regarding Fukushima.

Or maybe it's because of those things, too. I always thought it was the lies about Chernobyl that did in the Soviet Union.

Either way, as the truth gets out, people everywhere are getting disgusted with nuclear energy. Thank God (and DARPA) for the Internet!

This evening at a Nuclear Regulatory Commission hearing in San Juan Capistrano, California, I handed out about 75 copies of a new book I've just completed, a pictorial called SHUT SAN ONOFRE.

You can download the (free) 20-page book here:

(File size is about 7 megabytes.)

It's VERY new -- in fact, I only started writing it yesterday morning! Hooray for modern technology*!

The book includes more than 50 photos related to Fukushima which I've collected off the web over the past six weeks, and some information about alternative energy, wasted energy, the damage from Chernobyl, etc..

Fortunately a lawyer who also attended the (otherwise rather useless, as usual) NRC hearing is going to Sacramento (the state capital) tomorrow, and will try to put copies in the hands of staff members of our two senators! And a reverend who happens to be attending a national religious convention in Washington, D.C. will be doing the same thing next week! (I'll be overnighting a few copies to him tomorrow.)

Not bad for a book that still isn't even 48 hours old from original concept (for a one-page information sheet, but it grew...) to right now! Godspeed, little book!

I hope you enjoy it and I'll look forward to hearing any comments anyone might have. I'm sure there's room for improvement, but it was pretty well-received at the hearing.

(Note: In the back of the book are a few pages for collecting signatures, which are for when the book is printed. It's hoped that people will gather signatures and then send (or bring) the book to their elected officials. Anyone who would like to be sent printed copies at cost (including shipping) should contact the author.)

He has been investigating nuclear power for about 40 years. His in-depth book on nuclear power, The Code Killers, is also available as a free download from his web site:

* Adobe CS5 In-Design running on a Pentium i-7-powered Gigabyte EX58-UD3R motherboard with 16 gigabytes of Corsair XMS3 DDR3 RAM and five 320 gigabyte Western Digital VelociRaptor Hard Drives (four as a single RAID system (striped and mirrored) plus another drive for the operating system). BFG G-Force graphics card, LG 1920 by 1080 monitor, Kensington Expert Mouse Pro trackball, Wacom tablet (not used for this project), Logitech keyboard. Thermaltake 750 Watt power supply (energy supplied in part by SONGS). USB3 tri-terabyte back-ups with Norton Ghost, of course. My browser of choice these days is Google Chrome, but I keep Firefox at-the-ready. And the Operating System? Gee, I wonder. I also wonder if the owner of that OS is still hot for the traveling wave nuclear reactor after Fukushima, that he spoke of so glowingly (yes, it's a pun) at TED just a few weeks before the nuclear disaster? His "TerraPower" reactors would ALSO create tons and tons of nuclear waste -- each microgram just as dangerous as a microgram (a lethal dose) of Fukushima's "spent" fuel.
