Journalist Calls for Nuclear Waste X-Type Prize

Llewellyn King, Host, White House Chronicle

Trump Tweet Ignores Over $15 Billion Investment in Yucca Mountain

The possibilities for a solution other than any that are now on the table might come forth as a result of a large incentivizing prize.”

— Llewellyn King Executive Producer and Host, White House Chronicle

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, February 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Syndicated columnist and broadcaster Llewellyn King has responded to President Donald Trump’s withdrawal of support for the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository in Nevada, with a call for a $20 million prize-led attempt to find a wholly new nuclear waste solution.

In a column, distributed by InsideSources, King said all previous solutions have been politicized and a fresh start is needed.

On Feb. 6, Trump tweeted, “Nevada, I hear you on Yucca Mountain and my Administration will RESPECT you! Congress and previous Administrations have long failed to find lasting solutions — my Administration is committed to exploring innovative approaches — I’m confident we can get it done!”

The site in Nevada had been selected as the nation’s repository for civilian nuclear waste and more than $15 billion to $18 billion had been spent on site characterization, and the construction of the repository which included train lines to move the waste-handling equipment, a passive cooling system and other safety aspects.

King said starting with President Jimmy Carter’s rejection of reprocessing spent fuel in 1977, nuclear has been politicized, and those calling themselves environmentalists had fastened on nuclear waste as a club with which to beat up the nuclear option.

King said he believes that the possibilities for a solution other than any that are now on the table might come forth as a result of a large incentivizing prize. He also said he thought reprocessing might be an intelligent start at this time to reduce the volume of waste presented by the whole spent uranium-fuel core having to be stored.

King pointed out in his article that most of the severest nuclear waste materials are the beta, gamma and X-ray emitters, and that most of these decay away in about 300 years.

The alpha emitters, like plutonium, are quite benign, although they last essentially forever. King said the only danger from plutonium is in weapons proliferation and if you inhale the specks of the metal, you will get lung cancer, but other exposure, including drinking it, cause no harm.

King said aviation has benefitted enormously over the years from prizes, including one for the first flight across the English Channel to Charles Lindbergh’s crossing the Atlantic.

King has been writing about nuclear energy since 1969. He founded The Energy Daily in 1974.

Previously, he was an assistant editor at The Washington Post, an executive at a mass-circulation London newspaper, and a correspondent in Africa for British and American publications.

He is the host and executive producer of the weekly news and current affairs program “White House Chronicle” which airs on PBS and SiriusXM Radio, and a regular commentator on SiriusXM Radio’s P.O.T.U.S., Channel 124.

Professor Balakiryan: An open letter to Jeff Bezos.

According to experts, only the hydrogen revolution can save our common home and make living conditions on Earth more pleasant and comfortable

PHOENIX, ARIZONA, USA, February 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dear Mr. Bezos!

The creation of the Bezos Earth Fund and the allotment of 10 billions to fight climate change is admirable and confirms your concern for the fate of our beautiful planet.

You accompanied your decision with the wonderful words: "The earth is what unites us all – let's protect it together" Jeff Bezos

According to experts, only the hydrogen revolution can save our common home and make living conditions on Earth more pleasant and comfortable. After all, hydrogen is a better fuel than all petroleum refined products and all natural gases.
Hydrogen energy will completely change the ecology of our Planet: smog will disappear in megacities, millions of tons of carbon dioxide and heavy metals will not be released into the Earth's atmosphere, all modes of transport (car, water, aviation and space will be equipped with hydrogen reactors)

These are absolutely safe devices that are directly on board a ship or space rocket will produce the necessary hydrogen volumes. We have already created working prototypes of such engines.
I have been researching the phenomenon of resonance in electrolyte solutions since 1967.
And today we can get from 1 liter (1 kilogram) of ordinary sea water
not 112 grams, but 970 !!! gram of pure hydrogen at minimal energy consumption less than 0.5 kW/hour) and room temperature. You can imagine that under laboratory conditions it was possible to split the oxygen atom into nucleons and to obtain 18 !!! hydrogen atoms from 1 water molecule!

In order to restore the planet's ecology and enter the World energy market with an annual turnover of 9 trillion dollars, we need to create a "Hydrogen Research Center" under the Bezos Earth Fund.

I invite you to come to Phoenix Arizona at any time convenient for you, where I will give you and your colleagues a presentation and present patents and testing protocols for the devices I created.

These tests have been conducted at different times by independent companies with the highest trust rating in the United States and the world. (Air Kinetics, Inc. TRC Advanced Technologies Inc, Horizon Air Measurement Services)
A legendary hydrogen technology American scientist at Stanford University, rated my results as:
"This could be the biggest discovery in the history of mankind". Michael McKubre

New Drone Pilot Training Program Builds Skills for the Renewable Energy Industry

HeatSpring, Little Arms, and Unmanned Experts have built this unmanned aircraft commercial operations course especially for renewable energy firms.

ANN ARBOR, MI, USA, February 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The new “Drone Pilot Boot Camp + FAA Part 107 Exam Prep” is a collaboration between three companies: HeatSpring, Little Arms, and Unmanned Experts. They’ve built this unmanned aircraft commercial operations course especially for engineering, construction and renewable energy firms.

Keven Gambold is the instructor. Formerly a combat pilot for the British Royal Air Force, Keven has spent the past eight years developing training programs for drone pilots with Unmanned Experts.

Logging flight time is critical for a great course. Little Arms is the software firm behind the top-rated Zephyr drone simulation software. Zephyr works across any platform and has a built-in LMS that allows Keven to review student progress and coach each individual student on their flying. Flying the Zephyr simulations with Keven’s oversight is an incredible way to build skills quickly and efficiently.

Kyle Bishop, CEO at Little Arms says, "We're proud to announce our new partnership with HeatSpring and Unmanned Experts. The UAS industry is a constantly changing place, establishing effective and standardized training is a great way to help drive the industry forward as a whole."

HeatSpring brings twelve years of technical online education and a deep understanding of what the market expects from a great course. They’ve spent two years designing this course and finding the right partnerships to make it happen.

“We looked at more than a dozen drone flight simulators and Zephyr was the clear winner for us,” according to Brian Hayden, co-founder at HeatSpring. “It’s built for a training environment and able to work on any machine.”

The course is great for anybody who wants to become a drone pilot, but the primary aim of the course is to unlock new opportunities for engineering, construction, and renewable energy firms. Drones are a powerful and relatively inexpensive way to increase revenue and lower costs on projects big and small.

The next course begins in April 2020 – students who enroll get immediate access to their Zephyr software program. Students who enroll in this session also receive a free FlySky FS-i6S Transmitter.

— Georgia US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate

ATLANTA, GEORGIA , USA, February 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Georgia US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is appealing to a Navy Veteran who has lung cancer in Georgia to call them anytime at 800-714-0303 if they also had significant exposure to asbestos in the service. In the event the Veteran is too sick to call on their own the Advocate is appealing to their family to call on their behalf. The type of person the Advocate is trying to identify is over 60 years old and their asbestos exposure probably occurred before 1980. What people like this do not understand is the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. A Navy Veteran or even a worker in Georgia who had heavy exposure to asbestos and now has lung cancer could get in excess of a hundred thousand dollars in compensation.

The Advocate says, "To get the financial compensation job for a Navy Veteran or person in Georgia who had heavy exposure to asbestos and now has lung cancer we have endorsed the remarkable lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste. The lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste have been assisting Navy Veterans and people with asbestos exposure lung cancer and mesothelioma for decades and they are responsible for over a billion dollars in financial compensation for people like this.

Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. https://Georgia.USNavyLungCancer.Com

According to the American Cancer Society for nonsmokers who have been exposed to asbestos in their workplace the risk of lung cancer is five times that of unexposed workers. https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/lung/statistics/index.htm.

The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "If your husband, dad, coworker or neighbor has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and you know they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy, at a shipyard or while working at a factory, at power plant, public utility, or as a plumber, electrician welder, mechanic or any kind of skilled trades group in any state please have them call us anytime at 800-714-0303.

Safeguard Equipment Closes Sale of 10,000 Compass™ Personal Voltage & Current Detectors to FirstEnergy Corp.

Avoid Electrocution Safety Device

Compass Personal Voltage & Current Detector

Avoid Electrocution Safety Device

Compass Personal Voltage & Current Detector

FirstEnergy is committed to always putting safety first.

Safety is our core value, and working in partnership with our frontline workforce, we will utilize this tool to help our employees reduce their exposure when working in energized areas”

— Laura Redenshek, Director, FEU Safety

POST FALLS, IDAHO, USA, February 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Since commencing operations in 2018, Safeguard Equipment has sold thousands of its Compass Personal Voltage and Current Detectors (PVCDs). Compass is a revolutionary advancement in PVCD technology. The device’s advanced form factor and digital technology places it years ahead of any other safety device currently available. Compass securely attaches to the brim of any standard hard hat where it provides 360° of risk detection. It is the first device to provide both proximity and directional audio and visual alerts for electrical threats. This powerful risk-aversion technology has saved at least eleven lives to date and likely saved many more.

Safeguard recently contracted to supply 10,000 Compass units to FirstEnergy Corp., one of the nation's largest investor-owned electric utilities. FirstEnergy serves more than 6 million customers throughout the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions via 269,000 miles of distribution lines. "Safety is our core value, and working in partnership with our frontline workforce, we will utilize this tool to help our employees reduce their exposure when working in energized areas,” said Laura Redenshek, Director, FEU Safety.

Working with electricity every day requires skill, courage, and confidence. Experienced utility workers sometimes act as if they are immune to danger, but facts say otherwise: OSHA reports that more than 30,000 electric shock injuries occur every year. Some accidents are genuinely unpredictable, but many can be blamed on failing to follow proper safety procedures or neglecting to use all available safety equipment.

Nothing can eliminate all jobsite dangers, but commitment to personal safety is the best defense. The easiest way for utilities to avoid electrical accidents is to provide their workers with top-quality protective equipment including gloves, hard hats, boots, eye protection, and PVCDs.

Safeguard’s mission is “to innovate in all things safety and bring peace of mind in any work environment,” and FirstEnergy is committed to always putting safety first.

Air Quality Index Improves in Wuhan China.

Air Quality Index in Wuhan China during Coronavirus

Air Quality Index in Beijing China during Coronavirus is much better than in New Delhi India.

Better Air Quality Index in Wuhan during Coronavirus.

The positive impact of Coronavirus in Wuhan is the improved air quality index. As the people go back to work, air pollution goes up.

Climate change is not a Hoax we the people make an impact on the Air Quality Index as seen in Wuhan China where during the Coronavirus Air Quality Index is Good.”

— Air Quality index is impacted by the factories and Humans

SAN JOSE, CA, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The manufacturing has come to a halt in Wuhan China and the residents in the city are quarantined with a fear that Coronavirus will spread. There is no one to be seen on the streets and city is deserted. What does this mean – people are not going to work; factories are not producing any products and there are no cars on the roads.

The next question is do we as human beings have any impact on the Air Quality Index and pollution or on a larger scale do we have an impact on the Climate Change. The answer is YES!

I have been monitoring the Air Quality Index in Wuhan over the last few weeks and results support the hypothesis. The air quality has been Good to Moderate in the city, whereas other cities away from Wuhan still have the poor Air Quality Index.

The forecast is as people go back to work and we begin to manufacture the product we will begin to start contributing to the pollution and poor Air Quality Index. Indicating that we are directly responsible for the environment we live in and we have to make the choices.

It is very difficult to simulate such conditions in the present world where we are so interdependent on each other and have to keep our factories running to manufacture the products to stay competitive in the global environment. It is just a coincidence that the impact of Coronavirus which is a deadly infectious virus has forced us to stay isolated from each other to mitigate the spread of the virus from human to human.

During the same time here is Air Quality Index in Beijing South which is Unhealthy at 172. This corresponds to the fact that we the human beings have a direct impact on the quality of the Air Quality Index and the pollution in our environment.

Please refer to the chart on the side that clearly shows “Better Air Quality Index in Wuhan during Coronavirus”. What a difference it is to see the change. I do not wish that we have to be under the threat of Coronavirus to improve the air quality. I pray that we can learn from this and make changes in our manufacturing process and reduce the pollutants introduced by people living in the environment.

The housing contributes at least 18 to 20 percent to the global pollution. Homes heating, cooling and domestic hot water use over 65% of the Energy. One thing we can focus on is the way we are building our future homes. If we start building with all sustainable materials and Renewable Energy, we can make a big impact. This will not happen overnight but will take decades. Our goal is to have the environment turned around by 2050. When all the cities in world can breathe fresh air and live a healthy lifestyle.

India and China are the two most polluting countries in the world. Air Quality Index Chart showing the comparison between Beijing and New Delhi reflects that China is much cleaner as compared to Delhi. Beijing has had more cleaner days with good Air Quality Index vs Delhi.

India and China must take this very seriously or they are going to be responsible for most of the climate change impact. USA is the largest consumer of energy per capita but has a better Air Quality Index overall in the country.

Is there a room to improve the answer is YES! Sun is the best source of energy and today we have the know how to convert the solar energy to Electricity. Sun provides enough energy in one hour to provide the energy requirements for the world consumption. We just have to harness the energy and use it as needed.

The challenges we have is how to store the energy and use it at a later date when needed. As we speak the research is being done and we are developing technologies like the one developed by Tesla as Power Wall. We are currently also exploring the possibilities of storing energy in the Thermal Storage Energy using the solar power.

California is the leading state to encounter the climate change impact. The City Council in the city of Berkeley, Palo Alto, San Jose and may other have approved that the new construction homes will not be connected with gas lines and will have to be all electric. Initially the cost will be higher but the long-term benefit will be awesome for the generations to come. We one day may be able to leave the plant for them to live on without pollution. We must use Renewable Energy to solve the problem.

I have lived in New Delhi and I have seen the pollution and experienced it, It for that reason I am concerned about the citizens of the world and am constantly looking for solutions to make homes with the best Energy saving technologies the also improve the air quality inside the homes. We must build Passive Inspired Net Zero Home. I am so happy to see the improved air quality in Wuhan Chine – I hope we can keep it like that in the future.

Please see the video how is China improving the Air Quality Index.
