    Discussing this for days? You mean you claiming that millions die every year from nuclear and saying that there's no proof so it must be true? That's what we've been discussing for days. Yet you still refuse to post a single link to corroborate that 'fact'.

    You have now asked me one question and claimed you've been asking that for days. To hide that you simply made a number up, I understand that your beloved Arnie made a claim that two million would die from Fukushima but again, that goes against everything that science tells us.

    There are definitely fatalities associated with nuclear energy, just as there are fatalities associated with any form of power. The deaths caused by nuclear, are, substantially lower than others (based on the power generated). There are many links on the internet that show how deadly your power is compared with how much power is generated. The vast majority of deaths from nuclear come from uranium mining. Even when considering the most extreme numbers for Chernobyl, the number of fatalities annually from nuclear is in the low thousands but that's the extreme figures. When you consider that there were 7000 cases of thyroid cancer in children but only 12 fatalities it's reasonable to dismiss the extreme claims.

    Realistically the number of deaths on an annual basis from nuclear power is in the low hundreds.

    So, before going any further. Where, is your evidence that it's actually millions.

    I've stated that experts (and I can produce links) have said that 1.8 million lives have been saved. I can also produce links to prove that nuclear power isn't anywhere near as bad as you try to portray.

    You have claimed that millions die every year from nuclear. Millions. You've claimed that it costs more lives than it's saved yet you don't have a single link to support it. I have produced facts and figures that are easily founf on google. You haven't.

    Enenews is ridiculed by the science community. As is Busby.

    I haven't avoided a question... you haven't posed one yet.

    So once again I ask you to produce a single shred of evidence that states that millions die every year from nuclear. I will happily produce to numerous to counter that, but all I'm asking from you is one. One link that says millions die every year from nuclear.

    And again having spent three years at university studying the subject, I'd like to think that I have studied both sides. In quite a lot of depth.

    So please produce a link that states millions die every year from nuclear. Simple request and given your knowledge on the subject I would be expecting you to have loads at your finger tips.

    But all I want is one.

    Do it! Do it! Then, you will be illegally poaching whales in an international whale sanctuary and your ships will be seized and turned into coffee cans!

    Only if they do it in the Southern Ocean, if they do it in their own coastal waters there is nothing illegal whatsoever. This would have the added bonus (from the Japanese point of view) of reducing costs as they wouldn't need to go to the Southern Ocean. Iceland and Norway have already done the same I believe.

    Jerseyboy... you read the AFP version... not the ICJ's ruling. Two very different accounts.

    This is what the NZ foreign minister said at the time: "The Japanese will take the decision and see if they want to devise another programme that meets the terms the court spelt out.

    The court ruled that Jarpa II did not meet the criteria required. It did not ban the Japanese from whaling. It did not prevent them from creating new programmes, precisely what the NZ foreign minister spoke about.

    There is absolutely nothing in the ICJs ruling to prevent the Japanese starting a new whaling programme. Something that was commented upon at the time.

    It's amazing how many people have misunderstood the ICJ's ruling.

    It stated that the current whaling programme was unscientific. It did not state that whaling itself was unscientific. Nor did it forbid Japan from carrying out whaling in the future. New Zealand immediately cautioned against that as soon as the verdict was given.

    There is nothing in the ICJ's ruling to prevent a tighter, more scientific whaling program to commence.

    You may not like that, and it will almost certainly lead to a lot of negative ratings but your misunderstanding of the ruling doesn't change the fact that the ruling left the door open for Japan to create a new whaling programme.

    The Greens are a political party.

    /// nuclear has saved in the region of 1.8 million lives//// how many lives did it cost , what are your numbers on that ? Why dont you mention that ?

    Do you think that leading scientists when they come to a conclusion that 1.8 million lives have been saved, forget to include the amount of fatalities that come from nuclear? And yet it still gets peer reviewed and accepted?

    Promoting nuclear has never been about environment or health issues but only about profits

    So why on earth was it brought in in the first place? It's pretty expensive to build a nuclear power plant... a lot cheaper to continue to burn coal, gas and oil. Those plants were already built.

    The truth is , while you claim 1,8 million lives have been saved by nuclear its just the opposite , it has cost much more lives than that and keeps doing that for a long time to come

    This is not the truth. It's a completely and utterly ridiculous statement to make. Can you produce one link to prove that millions die a year? Can you produce any evidence?

    And then we come to realise that your 'independent' experts are Busby and Enenews and that just proves everything.

    There is absolutely no evidence to support your claims.

    It's interesting how you can be so dismissive of other people's opinions because the nuclear lobby is so strong. It must be brainwashing, the only way that someone could have a differing opinion to you. It certainly couldn't be down to science. Or facts. Or mumbo jumbo could it. Nope, we'll stick with the belief that millions of people die each year from nuclear because that is the only possible truth. And anything else is down to nuclear propaganda.

    You could give me some independent sources to provide the facts - wow - thanks. If only I had access to such information as I was doing my Bachelors in Environmental science it certainly would have helped. I'm sure that the conclusions that I came up with, stupidly backed up with facts and figures should be ripped up and replaced with it's impossible to tell so it must be true, would have changed the examiners opinions and given me an even higher grade.

    Environmental risks are extremely downplayed... you haven't demonstrated any knowledge on environmental risk except to say that nuclear is bad.

    Germany made the decision to phase out nuclear to appease the Greens. The energy companies, having been told to get rid of the profitable nuclear, have now turned to coal, not only have they turned to the coal, they've gone for Lignite. Because it's cheap. Despite the fact that it spews more greenhouse gasses than any other fossil fuel . Six new power plants are to be built. Co2 is increasing. And will increase further. Apparently I don't seem to understand why this is a good thing. Apparently it's good because it's not nuclear. You dismiss anyone who can't see nuclear as being evil as being misinformed. Yet as I mentioned earlier the leading climate scientists disagree with you. They've produced facts and figures. They've even gone as far as saying that nuclear has saved in the region of 1.8 million lives and will save countless more. Written. Reviewed. Approved. Accepted by the science community. Rejected by you. Because you know some bloke who says something different.

    Yep, it's all down to nuclear lobbyists.

    You keep saying that people are misinformed, yet if you actually bothered to read facts you may, potentially learn something. You claim that MILLIONS die each year - not true. You make comments about nuclear waste as though it is some huge mountain, yet it's actually a pretty small amount. I think the quote for the US was about 8 metres high, the size of a football field.

    ust the risk of radioactive isotopes in the environment should be enough to shut them all down ,

    Before you go any further, perhaps it's an idea to read up on environmental risk assessment. Because as far as your concerned everyone who ingests nuclear contamination will get cancer (hence the millions quote) whereas actually what the likes of Chernobyl and Fukushima tell us is that is not the case. Far from it.

    Many people have absolutely no idea.

    Very true. Nuclear is bad. It kills millions every year.

    Absolutely no idea.

    It's your opinion that supporters of nuclear as a green energy are reducing. It's a fact that the leading experts in the field are saying that from an environmental point of view it should be a combination of nuclear and renewables.

    It always makes me laugh when people use Germany as an example, even ignoring the fact they import energy from France (nuclear) as their Co2 emissions have increased for the second year running because of an increase in coal and oil. Germany is nowhere near the poster child of clean energy that the anti-nuclear brigade seem to think. It is actually increasing the number of coal fired power plants that will be built.

    What a brilliant example of a green environmental policy.

    Still in this day and age many believe nuclear energy is a green source or cheap source or even that it is the future . With this kind of mentality we are not going to achive anything and we are doomed to faill as a species .

    Is this a good time to quote what the leading climate scientists have said on the subject? What was it? Oh yeah we need an energy policy that combines nuclear with renewables.

    Still, what do they know on the subject? I know that they use facts and figures to justify their conclusions and don't come up with 'it's impossible to tell so it must be true' that others argue, but still they probably have a general understanding of the subject.

    Just to put your 'truth' in context.

    There are approximately 8 million deaths annually from cancer. If we assume that your 'millions' comment is at the low end we would be left with two million.

    You claim that 25% of the global cancer fatalities are caused by nuclear. One quarter.

    And not only do you claim this to be the truth you prove this by saying it's unprovable.

    May I suggest that you get informed instead of preaching others to.

    So because you can't find the real cancer numbers you maintain that it's 'millions'

    Bizarre

    So you maintain that MILLIONS a year die from nuclear?

    Do you have anything to corroborate that 'fact'?

    This is what you said:

    that's where nuclear should be ,, comparable to smoking , a filthy habit killing millions each year ,, just like nuclear energy does .

    You said that. Not sushisake. You.

    Your quote states that cigarettes and nuclear kill millions a year... that is not just oncorrect. It's the most ridiculous over exaggeration I've ever seen written. Ever.

    So yes, my comment still stands that there is plenty of disinformation coming from you.

    You are the one who needs to get informed.

    It's very difficult to describe the emotion of seeing a train in Tohoku.

    I'd been to Minami Soma a number of times, we used to park in the car park for an hour or so's sleep before we started the deliveries and there'd been no trains for months. I skipped a few deliveries and returned for the Christmas delivery, I was just about to nod off having arrived later than planned due to the snow on the mountailnswhen I was awoken by the sound of a train pulling into the station.

    I screamed TRAIN, in a momentary joyful outburst. I was so thoroughly delighted to see that level of progress. That level of improvement.

    And that was me, someone who would be a world away by the time the last train pulled into the station that day.

    Can you imagine how important it would have been for the residents?

    Funny, you must be watching different news in Auckland to me. And listening to different radio stations as well.

    It's also been reported that there have been twice as many hits on UK travel websites looking at NZ as a holiday destination, despite the pictures showing a typical Wellington day.

    I suppose it will be interesting to see how many people turn up to watch them, I'm guessing you won't be one of them going to the viaduct on Friday? Though I'm not entirely sure why they're getting on the chokers boat.

    The 49% comment is also wrong. According to Stats NZ (you know, the official statistics site) that 1/3 of Auckland's population will claim to be Asian by 2021. Somewhat lower than 49%

    Seriously, is that all you've got? I live 5000 miles away from any reactor so therefore I've no opinion. I guess as you've never been to Fukushima that voids your opinion does it? Never been to the temporary houses. Never met the people first hand. Never spent all night driving to deliver some food and water. Nope, all that bluster from the safety of your own warm living room.

    80% are in favour of scrapping all OR some of Japan's nuclear power plants.

    30% are in favour of scrapping ALL of them. 44% want SOME of them scrapped

    That should not lead ANYONE to conclude that 80% are against nuclear.

    59% said they were opposed to restarting the plants now.

    The poll didn't question whether they would be happy if the plants passed tests before going on line or ask if the respondents were completely against the starting of the reactors in the future.

    It's a very simple poll that was written in a way that was designed to get the result if did.

    The NHK poll was much more precise. 30% said they wanted a complete removal of nuclear whereas 69% were undecided/wanted a reduction/status quo.
