Even on Fox. I caught a bit of O'Rielly last night and he gave the impression that a "meltdown" would result in a nuclear bomb explosion and resulting fallout


I heard a nuclear expert on the radio this morning say that he didn't understand why so many news sources are putting out this worst case scenerio by trying to scare people into thinking this might be a chenobyl type of situation with fall out thousands of miles away.
He said this just simply isn't that kind of situation. The reactors all shut down right after the earthquake, so it is impossible for it to get anywhere near that bad.

Wasn't GE one of Obama's largest campaign donors in 2008?


That's my point.

One would assume a poster self-named "Ape" would think twice prior to attaching the term "dumbass" to others.

Thought is Westinghouse has an upper hand with its newest NucPlant design. The US, Europe, etc were on the cusp of licensing several sites. Those nearly certainly would have been dominated by Westinghouse. Not saying GE had a direct hand in contents or direction of the story, but the story does just happen to buy GE some catch-up time. Comprende?

Jay Lehr from the Heartland Institute was on Fox a few minutes ago. Never heard of the guy, but he made quite an impression. He was hammering ALL the news media for sensationalizing. He was pissed and started spouting that the dead bodies washing ashore were of more concern than the nuclear reactors. It was pretty wild.

They are supposed to have him back on tomorrow, but I'd guess somebody will try to get him back on today.

Fox's commentator (Hemmer?) was speechless.

Subhead on HuffPo is:

Japan's Nuclear Nightmare Rated Six out of Seven for Severity

Mushroom cloud any moment now, I suppose.

GE stocks dropped for a reason. I have no doubt that the poliboard has better information than the markets. :)

I heard that. He was really ticked at the coverage. He also cited some interesting statistics about Chernobyl, showing that it was not nearly the disaster the media made it out to be.

Majority of US journalists are idiots to begin with, usually majoring in joke degrees (if they even went to college).

Did she say all that while having a burning inferno of a gas fired plant in the background? I saw that done a couple days ago.

The market is down. Perhaps you don't follow it?
The Fukushima reactors are GE reactors. Perhaps you don't follow that either?
GE vs Westinghouse -- old foes dating back to ac-dc competition. Edison, electric chairs, etc. Regarding this GE - Westinghouse bout there's an old joke . . .

Two hikers on a trail came around the bend to find an enormous brown bear about 75 yards up the trail. The bear spies them and begins running toward them at a full gallop. One hiker drops his backpack, sits down, throws off his boots, and starts lacing up a pair of running shoes. The other hiker says: "What are you doing? You will never outrun that bear!". The first hiker replies: "I don't have to outrun the bear...I just have to out run you."

Define 'better'. If part of that definition is predicated on result/ROI, your lack of 'doubt' would be well placed in in the case of several posters on this board.

I googled the guy, and he seems to be well respected. I hope somebody else has him on when I can catch it. He's take on the situation is interesting and I'd love to hear him shut up somemore of these newspeople.

Actually, GE still owns a large share of MSNBC.

The obsession with msnbc continues. For a network which supposedly no one watches, it gets more attention on this board than all others combined.

(considering that there's at least a thread a day on this, this post is now a macro and will be used over and over and over for each stupid redundant thread)

Undisclosed NBC Conflict of Interest Again Arises in Annual 'Green Week'
By Lachlan Markay
November 16, 2010


On Sunday, NBC Universal launched its annual "Green Week," as part of the company's "Green is Universal" environmental awareness campaign.

. . .

GE stands to make millions from Democrats' "clean energy" agenda. The company has invested massive amounts of money in technology that can only be profitable through government intervention or subsidization.

Chief among federal policies from which GE would enormously benefit is cap and trade.

A cap and trade regime would establish a previously-nonexistent market for carbon credits. GE, which was a lead lobbying force for cap and trade and is a member of the pro-C&T "Climate Action Partnership," established what it called "Greenhouse Gas Services," a venture that invested in carbon credits. Those credits are completely useless unless the government, through a cap and trade scheme, establishes a market for them by requiring that all carbon-emitting businesses buy those credits to be allowed to pollute.

In other words, GE spent millions of dollars on a venture whose profitability depends on policies that its media arm, NBC Universal, shills for under the guise of "environmental awareness."

And GE's financial stake in left-wing climate legislation goes far beyond the current political nonstarter of cap and trade. The Washington Examiner's Tim Carney has reported extensively on GE's investments in "green" technology:

GE spends millions lobbying to protect and expand the cornucopia of wind subsidies that includes a "production tax credit" for wind farms, government mandates on utilities to buy wind power and local subsidies. In one case in upstate New York, the GE turbines will be powering a wind farm completed using eminent domain.

GE’s coal gasification, solar power generation, electric cars and biodiesel businesses are the same: Consumers and investors acting with their own money would not patronize these technologies, but Congress, acting with your money, will. GE’s $20 million annual lobbying budget sees to it.

GE has also launched a venture dealing in "greenhouse gas credits," which are literally worthless until Congress starts limiting greenhouse gas emissions. Throw in the expensive but unattractive light bulbs they’ve convinced Congress to mandate, and the pattern is clear.

Carney also noted that GE "has hitched its profits to its lobbying successes." Success in lobbying is of course synonymous with success in getting legislation through Congress. And building public support for such legislation is a fundamental element of getting that legislation passed. . . . . .
