Feds Want Nuclear Waste Train, But Don't Know Where It Would Go

harvey the nerd Re:train wreck (258 comments)

The corporations are chartered creatures of government often being given passes by government rather than being held fully liable for their sins.

We know anything the government does is a... train wreck. It will only get worse in the future.

New NRC Rule Supports Indefinite Storage of Nuclear Waste

harvey the nerd Th mixed oxide (191 comments)

Thorium mixed oxide fuel from lightly processed waste with say 10% Th would overcome the central storage problem. Already a bench/pilot scale technology in Europe.

850 Billion NSA Surveillance Records Searchable By Domestic Law Enforcement

harvey the nerd writs of assistance (207 comments)

NSA surveillience used by domestic LEOs function as writs of assistance, the traitorous general search warrants expressly forbidden by the Founders and a major cause of the American Revolution. No matter what title they have, some officials need to be tried then shot and/or hanged.

The US is totally off its constitutional rails.

An Accidental Wikipedia Hoax

harvey the nerd very Re: 'unreliability' (189 comments)

Complementary medicine and therapeutic nutrition are a dangerous POV mess of misinformation, opinion and attack at wikipedia. Hellbent on preserving the expensive pharmatopia that we live in, and die of.

35% of American Adults Have Debt 'In Collections'

harvey the nerd billing scams (570 comments)

A lot of bills these days are fraudulent in nature. Some are subscription mentalities, eager to charge like municipal taxes, instead seem to miss the concept of delivering satisfactory service or goods. Others may be generational changes in perception as to what constitutes adequate completion and quality for final payment.

Medicine is a wasteland of overcharges and ineffectiveness. We are able to reduce major medical costs 90-99%(!), with better results, through cheaper overseas providers AND our own applications of medical freedom from FDA and US med mafia.

Overall, incompetence and grossly overpaid nobodies eat a lot of time on bad bills. They may aggressively report bad payment for false bills, while it takes time to settle anything fairly or correctly, if ever. May not even be worth it. F'em, we can do cash or not buy at all.

Australia Repeals Carbon Tax

harvey the nerd Re:dumbo (291 comments)

Most advanced STEM people I know (PhDs, 1500+, patents, etc) have refrained from expressing their concerns and doubt for a long time, some figuring they missed some details or not worth the hassle. Now they can be reasonably certain how busted the CAGW data, models and technical processes are. Politically this becomes an existential fight to remain somewhat free, while some totalitarians are making the big grab. It has become worth the hassle.

Australia Repeals Carbon Tax

harvey the nerd Dear kool aid drinkers (291 comments)

It would be better to clean PM2.5, SOx, NOx, metals etc emissions. CO2 "mitigation" is a waste of time and money, an excuse for monster governments.

Australia Repeals Carbon Tax

harvey the nerd dumbo (291 comments)

CAGW is a scam that has become a religion seeking justification to mulct, enslave and decimate the world while ignoring the real threat, lesser global cooling periods and the main ice ages.

Only now has a public debate about the science actually begun and already it should be clear that CAGW promoters are more than a few cards short of a full deck. Altered data, history, obvious discrepancies of prior warmer periods like higher water or abandoned high altitude terraces, missing physics in models, gross errors in feedback like positive instead of negative, and the general use of character assassination rather than refutation.

The debate over climate change is..

harvey the nerd scientific debate finally starting (278 comments)

The scientific debate is just starting. For 20 years, Algore, Hansen and their bully boys have had suppressive reign in the media without a complete physics set, with lots of fudged results. Personally, I am planning on cold jag hitting in 2020.

Obama Administration Says the World's Servers Are Ours

harvey the nerd one way tickets... (749 comments)

Perhaps the US gov will save money buying one way tickets for their minions trying to access these foreign servers. Snooping on various kinds of information are criminal privacy invasions in some countries and need serious consequences. Something about their previous bad experience with murderous dictators. Hopefully criminals from the US won't get a free pass just because they are US gov employees.
