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.

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.

DOE Aims at $4.6 Billion to Convert Ill-Constructed MOX Plant into Plutonium Bomb Plant (PBP) at Savannah River Site

DOE Plans for Plutonium Bomb Plant (PBP) in Terminated Plutonium Fuel (MOX) Buiding at Savannah River Site. $8 billion was wasted on MOX and congressional investigations needed. Photo used with permission, courtesy of High Flyer

Presentation to Sierra Club (John Bachman Group) on Proposed Plutonium Bomb Plant (PBP) at Savannah River Site, by Tom Clements, director SRS Watch, January 27, 2020, Columbia, SC; photo by Paul Palmer

Production of 4000 new plutonium “pits” (cores) in a Plutonium Bomb Plant (PBP) at SRS and in new facilities at Los Alamos National Lab – for pits for unneeded new and “refurbished” nuclear weapons – poses risk of costly and dangerous nuclear arms race

As U.S. DOE Prepares for New Nuclear Arms Race, $442 Million Request in Fiscal Year 2021 for Plutonium Bomb Plant at SRS – Revealed in Feb 26 NNSA Budget Volume

Preparation for a Plutonium Bomb Plant at DOE's Savannah River Site would have an unwarranted financial cost, while stimulating a new nuclear arms race. Congress must reject this dangerous project.”

— Tom Clements, Director, Savannah River Site Watch, Columbia, South Carolina

COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA, US, February 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A budget document released by the U.S. Department of Energy late on Wednesday, February 26 reveals that the agency has assumed a stunning projected cost of $4.6 billion to convert the poorly constructed plutonium fuel (MOX) building at the Savannah River Site – near Aiken, SC – into a Plutonium Bomb Plant (PBP). This amount of spending reveals that DOE and contractors aim to repurpose the failed MOX project into a perpetual money machine, according to the public interest group Savannah River Site Watch (https://srswatch.org/).

The budget document, the National Nuclear Security Administration’s funding request to Congress for Fiscal Year 2021, confirms that the agency is seeking $441 million for “repurposing” the MOX building into the unjustified Plutonium Bomb Plant. The massive amounts of requested or anticipated funds reveal that the MOX plant is in poor shape and internal components, such as piping and HVAC systems, will have to be ripped out and much construction reworked. (Link to most recent MOX photos posted here.)

“Plans to throw vast sums of our money at an unjustified, rushed Plutonium Bomb Plant, central to a new nuclear arms race, is a DOE formula for failure and, like the mismanaged MOX project, is guaranteed to run far over budget and fall far behind schedule,” according to Tom Clements, director of SRS Watch. “Sadly, it is no surprise that the failed MOX project, on which $8 billion was wasted, is turning into a money machine for private contractors who aim to feed off creation of a Plutonium Bomb Plant at SRS,” added Clements. The Plutonium Bomb Plant would make plutonium “pits” (or triggers, which cause the nuclear explosion) for thousands of nuclear new and refurbished nuclear weapons, all part of a new plan to engage in a dangerous and costly new nuclear arms race.

The overall DOE budget request reveals a massive increase in nuclear weapons activities. The NNSA request is up 18.4% from Fiscal Year 2020, to $19.8 billion. The Weapons Activities’ budget request is $15.6 billion, up 25.2 percent above the FY 2020 enacted amount, according to a NNSA news release of February 10, the day top-line items of the budget were released. Meanwhile, the DOE site clean-up budget absorbs the brunt of the increase in pit production, from about $7.5 billion appropriated in FY20 to a FY 21 request of $6.1 billion. “The huge decrease in clean-up funding and exploding increase in nuclear weapons reflects reversed, unjustifiable budget priorities,” according to Clements.

The NNSA budget request (on page 199) reveals the stunning sums of money it seeks to make 50 or more plutonium pits per year at SRS by 2030, a site that has had zero experience in handling pits, zero experience in casting liquid plutonium and little experience in processing plutonium since all five production reactors ceased operation in the late 1980s:

"This project was initiated in FY 2019 utilizing Other Project Costs (OPC) funding in the Plutonium Sustainment Program. Critical Decision (CD) 0, Approve Mission Need, for the “Plutonium Modular Approach” was approved on November 25, 2015 with a preliminary Total Project Cost (TPC) range of $1.3B to $3.0B with a project completion schedule range of December 2025 to December 2027. The most recent cost and schedule estimates were developed during the Plutonium Pit Production Engineering Assessment (EA) in 2018 with an estimated construction high end of the cost range at $4.59B and a CD-4 schedule range of July 2026 to January 2030. … The Mission Need Statement was revised in March 2019 for the now titled “Savannah River Plutonium Processing Facility (SRPPF)”."

"The FY 2021 Request for Savannah River Plutonium Modernization and Pit Production is $441,896,000 which includes $241,896,000 for construction design, $110,000,000 for Other Project Costs (OPC) funding in the Savannah River Plutonium Operations Program for the planned project, Savannah River Plutonium Processing Facility, and $90,000,000 for Plutonium Modernization work to support the capability to produce 50 pits per year at Savannah River."

As it rushes headlong with plans for pit production at SRS, NNSA is also planning on a massive spending increases at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico to make 30 or more pits per year by 2026. The pit-related request for Los Alamos in Fiscal Year 2021 is a stunning $884,599,000.

NNSA is refusing to review reuse of over 15,000 pits stored at DOE’s Pantex site in Texas and has so far refused to take another serious look at pit lifetime. A 2007 study entitled “Pit Lifetime” – https://fas.org/irp/agency/dod/jason/pit.pdf – by the JASON group for NNSA, said that most pit types “have credible minimum lifetimes in excess of 100 years as regards aging of plutonium.”

SRS Watch, along with fellow members of the Alliance for Nuclear Account Ability (ANA) – Nuclear Watch New Mexico and Tri-Valley CAREs – are reviewing legal options given NNSA’s failure to prepare the mandated Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) to review system-wide impacts of pit production. Underscoring the need for the PEIS, the current DOE budget request reveals that a host of sites beyond SRS and Los Alamos are involved in pit activities. An analysis of NNSA’s budget request by Nuclear Watch New Mexico reveals that NNSA “has requested $1.58 billion for expanded plutonium pit production in FY 2021 alone.”

Thomas Brendler to Receive ABC's 2019 Champion Award

The American Botanical Council (ABC) announces that Thomas Brendler is the recipient of the 2019 ABC Champion Award.

AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA, February 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The American Botanical Council (ABC) announces that Thomas Brendler is the recipient of the 2019 ABC Champion Award. Brendler, the founder of the consulting firm PlantaPhile, has dedicated countless hours to ABC and its publications since joining the ABC Advisory Board nearly a decade ago.

The ABC Champion Award was created to recognize individuals who have been outstanding supporters of ABC and have helped the organization promote and achieve its nonprofit research and educational mission, whether through monetary support or contributions of time. The generosity of ABC’s friends and members is vital to the nonprofit’s continued success and growth.

“I feel very honored to receive this award, as much as I feel honored to join the ranks of previous recipients,” said Brendler. “As my friend and colleague Josef Brinckmann once pointed out, we don’t do what we do with awards in mind. We find satisfaction and gratification in the opportunity to contribute to the shaping of the herb, botanical, and phytomedicinal industry. Nonetheless, as this award acknowledges my personal and professional dedication to improving the world of herbs and natural products, I am deeply grateful for the recognition.”

Throughout his 10-plus years working with ABC, Brendler has contributed to ABC publications by serving as an expert reviewer, editor, and author. Since 2010, Brendler has worked as an HerbClip Consulting Editor, helping to ensure the accuracy of ABC’s biweekly research summaries. The following year, Brendler joined the ABC Advisory Board, and he has frequently volunteered his time as a peer reviewer of articles pertaining to his numerous areas of expertise, including African medicinal plants, commercialization and regulation of medicinal plant ingredients, phytochemical analysis, and traditional and historic plant use, among other areas. In addition, Brendler co-authored the Cranberry Botanical Adulterants Prevention Bulletin for the ABC-AHP-NCNPR Botanical Adulterants Prevention Program in 2017.

Most recently, in late 2018, Brendler became a regular contributor to ABC’s quarterly, peer-reviewed journal HerbalGram as co-author of its in-depth Herb Profiles. Joining forces with Traditional Medicinals’ Josef Brinckmann, who received ABC’s Champion Award in 2016, Brendler is primarily responsible for the “Modern Research” and “Current Authorized Uses” sections of the profiles. His first Herb Profile, on black cohosh (Actaea racemosa), appeared in HerbalGram’s special women’s health-themed issue published in early 2019. Since then, Brendler has co-authored profiles on tongkat ali (Eurycoma longiflora), copalchi (Hintonia latiflora), guayusa (Ilex guayusa), and birch (Betula spp.)

HerbalGram Managing Editor Tyler Smith acknowledged Brendler’s ongoing contributions to the publication. “For years, Thomas has been one of our most reliable peer reviewers and contributors, and he took this commitment to another level when he signed on as co-author of HerbalGram Herb Profiles. Each profile takes dozens of hours to produce, and he and Josef regularly submit drafts before assigned deadlines. Thomas not only has expertise in a wide range of medicinal plant-related fields, but he also is a skilled writer and editor, and genuinely a pleasure to work with.”

Brendler added: “For my entire professional career of soon to be 30 years, the trinity of quality, efficacy, and safety has been my guiding principle when assisting clients with product or supply-chain development. A significant part of this effort consists of researching, assembling, and disseminating reliable information on herbs and their function, not only to my industry and academic clients, but also to the general public, the consumer. Inasmuch as this very much aligns with ABC’s nonprofit mission, goals, and intentions, it has always been both an honor and a pleasure to contribute to ABC’s endeavors as an advisor, editor, and author.”

In addition to his consulting work with PlantaPhile, Brendler is the principal scientist in the research and development department at Traditional Medicinals. He is also a co-founder of the Association of African Medicinal Plants Standards (AAMPS) and has served as its director since 2005. Further, he is affiliated with the Department of Botany and Plant Biotechnology at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa. Brendler has co-authored numerous books, book chapters, and scientific articles, and is on the editorial boards of Phytotherapy Research and the Journal of Ethnopharmacology. In addition to being part of the ABC Advisory Board, he is a member of multiple organizations and committees, including the US Pharmacopeial Convention Expert Committee Botanical Dietary Supplements and Herbal Medicines, the Society for Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Research (GA), European Scientific Cooperative on Phytotherapy (ESCOP), International Society of Ethnopharmacology, and American Herbal Pharmacopoeia.

ABC created the Champion award in 2015. Previous recipients include Jim Emme, CEO of NOW Health Group (2018); Dick Griffin of Griffin Insurance Services (2017); medicinal plant expert Josef Brinckmann of Traditional Medicinals (2016); Ed Smith, co-founder of Herb Pharm (2015); and Terry Lemerond, founder of EuroPharma, Inc. and Enzymatic Therapy (2014).

Brendler will accept the award at the 15th Annual ABC Botanical Celebration and Awards Ceremony in Anaheim, California, on March 4, 2020. The event, for ABC Sponsor Members, occurs during Natural Products Expo West.

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.
