JAPAN ASKS FOR NUCLEAR HELP: AN INTERMISSION FROM APOCALYPSE THEATER, ...

Well, one of the latest stories out of Japan is this: TEPCO, the electrical company that built and maintained the nuclear plant to in the news lately, is pleading for nuclear workers from around the world to help it put out the reactor fires and stem the disaster:

Exclusive: WANTED: U.S. workers for crippled Japan nuke plant

OK...fine, but then there's this:

TEPCO and Texas Nuclear Power Project

And this:

TEPCO and Texas Nuclear Power, NASDAQ report

Now...wait a minute! Say what!?  Huh!? Rewind and play that again!? This is the same company that (1) built a nuclear power plant in an earthquake zone (2) built it on the shore in a tsunami-prone area of the country instead of on higher ground, (3) built it behind a 20-25 seawall (remember those tsunamis?) and (4) had a long and dubious safety and maintenance track record.

And this is the company that was going to be involved in a nuclear power plant project on the Texas coast!?!?!?  OK, now, c'mon you guys that are scripting this apocalypse theater, surely you can do better! Why not enter into a partnership with Thyssen-Krupp, British Petroleum, and TEPCO for a truly apocalyptic Gulf-of-Mexico scenario? Why, would could have a radioactive oil spill (lasting months) and a veritable cornucopia of news stories hyping up fear and helplessness.

Well, my point is humorous, but the situation - whether there is any scripting or not - is hardly laughable. We need look no further than to the fact that one petroleum company nearly ruined (and some say it did), the Gulf of Mexico and the livelihoods of thousands of people, and another nuclear energy company has such a disastrous safety record that it had to pull out of a deal in Texas - a deal, I hasten to remind everyone, might have gone through had not the tragedy in Japan occurred.

Face it, these corporations are a menace. It is time for a Manhattan Project to research alternative energy forms and new theories to produce them. It is time for a public debate - a prolonged and persistent presence in the public mind that we need such research and need to insist upon it.

Otherwise, we are left with this tragi-comedy, this farce, of corporate elites that do not know what the hell they're doing.

  1. Look who else they are asking help from:

    Japan has asked Russia for more energy supplies as the earthquake-ravaged country is bracing for electricity shortages following the disaster, the Russian government said.

    At a special meeting dedicated to the aftermath of Friday’s massive 9-magnitude quake in Japan, Russia’s powerful Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said Moscow should do everything to help its neighbour which his energy deputy said had requested more gas.

    ‘Our neighbours are faced with huge grief and tragedy,’ Putin told the meeting on Saturday evening, saying all necessary assistance should be rendered despite ‘the problems which we have inherited from the past’.

    ‘This is our reliable partner of many years. We need to do everything to help Japan in this situation,’ he said in comments released by the government.

    Bilateral ties have been strained by a row over a disputed island chain that has been unresolved since World War II.

    That dispute has flared up since November when President Dmitry Medvedev paid an unexpected visit to one of the four Kuril islands which are claimed by Tokyo and collectively known in Japan as the Northern Territories.

    Putin’s deputy in charge of energy, Igor Sechin, said Japan had asked state-controlled gas giant Gazprom for additional liquefied natural gas supplies, adding the company was now looking how to divert two tankers, currently under other contracts, towards Japan.

    ‘It will be two 100,000 tonne vessels,’ Sechin said.

    Russia can send up to 500,000 tonnes of LNG to Japan this year if Japanese companies file a request and talks are held, he said.

    In partnership with Japanese companies Mitsui and Mitsubishi, Gazprom operates Russia’s only LNG plant on Sakhalin Island, a project known as Sakhalin-2.

    Sechin also said Russia was ready to increase supplies of coal and representatives of the Siberian Coal Energy Company would go to Japan next week.

    ‘We can ramp up supplies by three million to four million tonnes fairly quickly,’ he said, adding that Russia could also supply Japan with power as it has extra capacities generated in the Far East.

    The Japanese government said on Sunday the shutdown of several nuclear reactors after the earthquake may lead to a shortfall in electricity supply and would make power outages necessary.

    In total, 11 of the roughly 50 nuclear reactors in Japan, located in the worst-affected areas, were shut down following the quake.

  2. Just when you think it can’t get any stupider, it does. Popular corollary – just when you think you’ve won the rat race, along come faster rats.

    At some point, the elites will lose their grip on society – no empire has ever lasted, and technology has sped things up dramatically. No “Thousand year Reich” will exist, because even if an elite succeeded in suppressing the general population for any length of time, the innovation and creativity which requires a certain threshold of freedom will cease, and their society will stagnate and die. It is like cancer – a self-limiting disease. It may kill the host, but destroys itself in the process – not a very sound methodology.

    As Weston Price once said when asked how we can respond to the huge corruption of our food supply and the powerful interests which cause that, “you teach, you teach, you teach.”

    Kind of like JPF……

  3. Has anyone ever bothered to check the records regarding people who, in the past, have attempted to bring forth alternative free energy technology? If you do you will find a list of accidental deaths and highly questionable suicides amongst those involved. TPTB are absolutely opposed to any release of info regarding this tecnology and will stop at nothing to protect their control of the “energy for profit” mode of business. Don’t imagine that BigGov will be on the side of alternative energy. Writing a letter to your congressman will not help…BigOil already owns him.

    1. The trick we need to play is this. DO NOT claim something you
      have is free energy. DO NOT even hint that it might, or you might
      want it to, free us from oil, big corporate control, etc.

      Just market something as a device that is of superior efficiency.

      A lot of these things patents I think were bought up by people
      wanting to suppress them, so if you find something so owned,
      apply some tweak to it and patent the new version again,
      under the heading of improved efficiency.

      Fly under the radar.

        1. I am sorry, my response was a bit odd. What I have heard happens with these types of breakthroughs is, that even before you go to patent an item( a free energy device) some one knocks on your door and tells you ” we will take everything you have, or you will die”
          So my thoughts are, that certain types of free energy devices have a signature that might be detectable, and that would explain the intervention that seems to follow. Now retooling a device like that, or mildly retarding one, might not work, opposition may be at your door step before you go to patent a device.

      1. That is not easy. There are people who are paying a great deal of attention to patents and tech developments, as documented by Tom Bearden John Bedini.. In fact, I just got a DVD of Bedini discussing one such person, whose job it was to assess and suppress these energy devices for the “powers that be.”

        This man was extremely intelligent, deeply involved in the free energy arena, and not easily fooled. The elites who employed him seemed quite knowledgeable about what to look for in energy technology, and have society heavily programmed to dismiss “perpetual motion” devices out of hand. They know what to look for in terms of electronic control devices, methods of overcoming limitations of standard electrical technologies, and changes in components like batteries in which unusual energies leave certain signatures.

    I keep hoping these idiots will shoot themselves in the foot but so far, they’ve shot us in our feet! Somehow we need to stand up, be heard and demand these fools turn over operation of these companies to people that know how to run them. I am not impressed with big corporation mentality!

  5. Agree 100% Joesph!! From your tone you are getting rather pi***d off with this INSANE bunch… just like the rest of us are 🙂

  6. Instead of a Manhattan Project of Free Energy
    (which implies secrecy), just have the govt. release
    all the data they have collected from stolen research,
    bought-off inventions and suppressed knowledge
    and put it in the Public Domain and let the people
    have at it. The ingenuity of the people will manifest.
    “Necessity is the Mother of Invention”.

  7. Quite agree! It is time for Fringe people like us to figure out how to get the media to relay to everyone that we need a new form of energy.
