NEWS from BEYOND NUCLEAR - Three Important Upcoming Webcasts; Denmark Going Beyond Nuclear

NRC webcast of public meeting on Beyond Nuclear North Anna Emergency Enforcement Action

On Monday, December 12, 2011 from 2:30 to 4:30 PM EST, NRC is meeting with Beyond Nuclear and joint petitioners who have called for emergency enforcement action for full public hearings rights on license changes to Virginia’s North Anna nuclear power plant following the August 23, 2011 earthquake. The meeting will be webcast and a telephone bridge line is being provided for up to 100 toll free lines for the public to listen in. Details for linking to webcast and toll free telephone bridge line can be viewed by clicking on December 12 in NRC homepage calendar for public meetings.

Petition to suspension of operating license for North Anna Power Station due to concerns about damage to reactors from the 8/23/11 earthquake.

NRC to webcast Beyond Nuclear presentation to Commission on status of fire protection at reactors

On Tuesday, December 13, 2011, beginning at 9 AM EST, Beyond Nuclear Director of Reactor Oversight, Paul Gunter, will be testifying before the Chairman and Commissioners of the US NRC on what we believe to significant decades old fire protection risks at US reactors. These same risks potentially threaten control room operations for safe shutdown and cooling of reactors similar to the failure that led to the explosions and meltdowns at Fukushima. Go to this NRC link to view the webcast and Beyond Nuclear at the meeting.

Senate Committee webcast of hearing with NRC Commissioners on Fukushima and US reactors

We hear that the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee will be meeting with the Chairman and the Commissioners of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission on Thursday, December 15, 2011 to discuss the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe and implications for US reactors.

Denmark aims for 100% renewable energy by 2050!

Following on the heels of Germany, Denmark – already the global leader in wind power – has declared its intention to go from 20% to 50% wind power by 2020 and 100% renewable energy generation by 2050. Denmark will also take over the presidency of the European Union on January 1 and plans to push for ambitious climate and energy goals.

"Freeze Our Fukushimas" is a national campaign created by Beyond Nuclear to permanently suspend the operations of the most dangerous class of reactors operating in the United States today; the 23 General Electric Mark I Boiling Water Reactors, the same flawed design as those that melted down at Fukushima-Daiichi in Japan.

Become a co-petitioner to NRC and support the Beyond Nuclear call for the suspension of the 23 Fukushima-style reactors operating in the US.

Strong Children Japan

Portraits of Japanese children and young people living with the ongoing consequences of the Fukushima Daichi nuclear accident, the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami of March 11th 2011. The images and words are made by the children, combined with their portrait by Japan-based English artist Geoff Read done according to their instructions. The aim is to enable them to share their important experiences and thoughts with the world.

"There is a smile in the middle of sunflowers.
I think everyone smiles when they see them."

Yamato is 13 and lives in Fukushima

The writing on the picture is a haiku about the importance of living cheerfully, like sunflowers. Sunflowers have been planted in high radiation areas of Fukushima in an attempt to remove radiation from the soil, so they are becoming a symbol of regeneration.
