I know this is about our planet but


This just isn't nice

I may have issues with cats but COME ON...poor kitties....

Echo
Ps. I found "furry friends" in trouble.

%^$@^@&%&@^$@%^&%$&#$^@ CAT MOLESTERS!!!! ALL OF THEM!!!! DEATH TO CAT MOLESTERS!!!!
Flare

Robert Varulfur said...

WHAT THE F**K ARE THEY GOING TO DO TO THOSE KITTIES!!!!!!!!!!!!

Flare said...

i dont want to know

Storm said...

KITTIES!!! nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
DEATH TO ALL KITTY MOLESTERS!!! i say we put THEM in the cages and see how THEY like it!!! (then maybe we can roll the cages down a hill! a steep one!)

Flare said...

or put them in a bag, light it on fire and throw them in a DEEP river. DIE KITTY MOLESTERS

Cruz said...

WTF! this is sooooo DISTURBING and WRONG, I don't even know what to say...

Storm said...

yeah! wait, the kitty molesters or me and radar?
well...

.........THEY WILL DIE!!!!!! THE KITTIES WILL BE AVENGED!!!!!!! DIE EVIL KITTY MOLESTERS! DIEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY WILL BURN IN IN THE FLAMES OF ETERNAL DARKNESS!!!!! THEY FEEL MORE PAIN THAN ANYBODY EVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE!!!!!!!!

Flare said...

there are flames of eternal darkness and then there are flames of eternal suffering. and then there are the flames of he** with added gasoline. those cat molesters and robert pattinson both need to go there

texi said...

Please tell me where you are at the moment or your real name. I can fly and so can you. I can find you.

Salom said...

i think texi should go to he** and stop asking questions like that.

that is all i have to say

-Salom

Cruz said...

hey hey now lets leave robbie pattinson out of this... but I agree with everything else, and Flare I had no idea there was so many different kind of flames

and yeah Salom, have you figured it out texi=itex those guys are genius when the chose that "texi" name as a cover

Gandalf said...

I hate the man just as much as any body but Curz is right.Lok re gar!Death to all who oppose the Horde!!
And that counts

flare, im not even going to mention all the things you said, but lets move on.
August 2002 -- The American public has been led to believe that nuclear power is extremely dangerous and that nuclear waste disposal is an unsolved problem. Those beliefs are based on preposterous distortions perpetrated by irrational environmentalists and an irresponsible mass media. In reality, a reactor meltdown would have to occur every two weeks to make nuclear power as deadly as the routine emissions from coal-fired power, from which we get about half of our electric power in the United States. (Note: some newer nuclear power plant designs cannot possibly meltdown.) And if the United States went completely nuclear for all its electric power for 10,000 years, the amount of land needed for waste disposal would be about what is needed for the coal ash that is currently generated every two weeks.

Anti-nuclear activists like to scare us with horror stories about the "thousands of tons of nuclear waste" that have been produced since nuclear power began some four decades ago. That sounds like a lot -- until you put it into perspective, which anti-nuclear activists and the mass media never do. Consider that one pound of plutonium can produce as much energy as the Yankee Stadium full of coal. And coal-fired power generates something like 100 million tons of waste annually in the United States, or about three tons of ash per second. Every few hours, more coal ash is generated than high-level nuclear waste has been generated in four decades!

Oh, but nuclear waste is far more dangerous than coal waste, isn't it? Actually, it isn't. For a given amount of energy produced, coal ash is actually more radioactive than nuclear waste. How can that be? Simple. The quantity of coal ash is literally millions of times greater than the corresponding quantity of nuclear waste, so even though the radioactive intensity of the coal ash is much less, the overall amount of radiation and radioactive matter is greater.

But nobody worries much about the radioactivity of coal ash because the chemicals in it are far more dangerous. They include several thousand tons per year of mercury and other heavy metals, along with huge amounts of lead, arsenic, and asbestos, for example. Yet even the huge quantities of chemical waste in coal ash are of little concern compared to the gaseous emissions from burning coal, which kill an estimated 10,000 to 50,000 Americans every year, depending on which study you believe. As a point of reference, even the lower estimate approaches the rate at which Americans died in the Viet Nam war, and the higher estimate greatly exceeds it, yet the media rarely report on those deaths.

So let's get this straight. For a given amount of energy produced, coal waste has more radioactive matter than nuclear waste, yet the radioactivity of coal waste is nowhere near as dangerous as the solid chemical waste, which in turn is nowhere near as dangerous as the gaseous emissions. Are you starting to get the picture yet?

But even those staggering figures fail to capture the major environmental advantages of nuclear power over coal-fired power. Why? Because the solid and gaseous emissions from coal burning are generated in such a huge quantity that they cannot possibly be contained. They can only be spewed into the atmosphere and dumped into shallow landfills. There is no conceivable way to isolate waste that is generated at the rate of three tons per second. Nuclear waste, on the other hand, is so miniscule in comparison that it can be almost completely isolated from the environment at a very modest cost. And even though that cost has been greatly inflated by the anti-nuclear hysteria, it is still very managable.

If all the high-level nuclear waste that has ever been generated were simply dumped into the middle of the ocean, it would be many thousands of times less harmful than the coal waste generated over the same period. But the nuclear waste is so miniscule in quantity that it can be isolated almost completely from the environment. In fact, that is exactly what is being done all over the world. Basic technology exists to convert nuclear waste into a solid, water-impermeable glass form, encase it into stainless-steel-lined concrete containers, and put it thousands of feet underground where water hasn't flowed for hundreds of thousands of years. And nuclear power produces no gaseous emissions, of course.

Yet, amazingly, a large percentage of the American public has been hoodwinked into believing that nuclear waste disposal is an "unsolved" problem. In order to perpetuate the absurd mythology of nuclear waste, anti-nuclear extremists have concocted the absurd idea of a "nuclear priesthood" to warn people of the dangers of buried nuclear waste thousands of years in the future. Never mind that coal waste contains more overall radioactivity and is not contained at all. The idea of a "nuclear priesthood" is based on another absurd anti-nuclear distortion: the idea that nuclear waste is "dangerous for hundreds of thousands of years."

Oh yes, nuclear waste would indeed be "dangerous for hundreds of thousands of years" if we were stupid enough to leave it lying around untreated, but did someone forget to mention that coal ash is dangerous forever? That's right: solid chemical waste never decays. It will be as dangerous in ten million years as it was the day it was generated. And there is so much of it that we have no choice but to leave it lying around untreated. So do we need a "coal-ash priesthood"? Only if we've lost our sanity and common sense. Note, incidentally, that uranium comes from the ground in the first place, where it is neither encased in stainless-steel-lined concrete containers nor isolated from groundwater.

The whole notion that nuclear waste is "dangerous for hundreds of thousands of years" is fundamentally misleading. Nuclear waste contains a combination of many radioactive materials with a wide range of halflives, ranging from a fraction of a second to millions of years. The short-lived materials radiate very intensely but for a short period of time (they are safely dissipated at the power plant long before they are ever put into long-term storage). The long-lived materials such as uranium and plutonium, on the other hand, radiate for a very long time but at an extremely low level -- so low that their danger is essentially chemical. The materials with intermediate halflives on the order of a few decades are the most problematic, but even they are easily managable.

Coal-fired power is many thousands of times more dangerous and harmful to the environment than nuclear power. Does that mean coal-fired power should be stopped? Absolutely not. Even coal-fired power is far better than no power at all. Without economical electric power, we will rapidly degenerate into a third-world nation, and average lifespans will drop precipitously. Even though emissions from coal-fired power costs many lives, the net effect of coal-fired power is to extend average lifespans. The point is not that coal-fired power is bad, but rather that nuclear power is thousands of times cleaner and safer. And the fact that so many so-called "environmentalists" vociferously oppose nuclear power -- even while they agitate for draconian measures to stop "global warming" -- should tell you something about them: they are either ignorant or they have ulterior ideological motives -- or both.

Salom:

Nobody here says Coal produced power is a good thing and I think it's rude of whoever wrote that article to call activists ignorant. I mean that's the whole point of this blog is become educated and exchange ideas to make ourselves more aware of the problems facing our environment, but yeah as far as the nuclear power info, I never really thought about nuclear as bad, just another alternative, lots of people are misinformed about the long term effects of waste, be it from coal-power producing plants or nuclear energy power plants, these companies never tell anyone the TRUTH, they just tell us what makes THEM look good, like no one's doing anything wrong to our environment. Good article on the truths of Nuclear Power even though a bit views-forced there at the end. If you really are interested in alternate power sources, you should read Sonar's old post called "Waves", it's somewhere on here, idk remember the date though. TTYL

i never said i agreed with it...
because i dont for most of it just some of it...
-Salom

Cruz said...

SALOM: I agreed with some and not with some, too. I do agree big companies never really tell the public exactly how much pollution their causing and most government officials look the other way when it comes to pollution (never the whole truth or just THEIR version), sort of like if they don't see it, they don't have to deal with it.

anyway... HAPPY BIRTHDAY, I think that's the 2nd blog I've posted that.lol. idk if I had time to goto your blog today, just wanted to say that.

Poor animals! I love cats! We own four!
But what if those cats are sick, and they need to be taken away? If it isn't for fun, and it's important, maybe they should do it...

Voyagefan said...

Um, guys? May you please do me a great big HUUUUGE favor? It's to cut down on the swearing. Please? It's bad...even if you're an adult. I'm not trying to boss you around...

Hey long time no see

Julian Starkey said...

ONE OF THEM LOOKS LIKE MY CAT, PARIS. IF I WASNT A PACIFIST I WOULD TOTALLY KICK THEIR ASSES. BUT SINCE I AM I SHALL HAVE TO HIRE SOMEONE TO DO IT FOR ME. thats not against pacifism, is it?

shadowolf said...

THIS IS WRONG. I agree with Storm, we should put these guys in cages. Then we can prod them with sticks and throw rotten food at them. That would be kinda fun. We just need huge cages. Or really tiny ones so they cant move around. Yeah.
