Gene Editing and Recovery from Radiation

"Welcome to the talking biotech podcast. Weekly podcast about agriculture medicine with an emphasis on biotechnology and the good things we can do for people and the planet names kevin volta. I'm a professor and a podcast host. Who cares about science communication mostly around the area of biotechnology. So today we wanted to talk about something interesting. Radiation and radiation has many places in biology. Of course our resistance to it. The problems that can be caused from it as well as its use as a therapeutic agent used to induce genetic variability when we do plant breeding but has some deleterious downsides and they've represented barriers both for remediation of radioactive. Waste as well as if there's issues with the side effects of radiation therapies for cancer. So i was excited to learn about some work. That's happening. The innovative genomics institute out at the university of california berkeley. There's work that's gone. Underway under darpa funding to attempt to use gene editing to solve some of the problems associated with radiation exposure. Mostly in acute radiation sickness. and so. today we're going to talk to dr feodor urnov. He's a professor in molecular and cell biology department at the university of california berkeley as well as the director for translation technology at the innovative genomics institute associated with berkeley. So welcome to the podcast. Dr urnov thank you for having. This is really a pleasure. I was really excited to read about this. Because it seems like such a cool project that's long overdue and i can certainly understand arpaio's interest in this. I tried to frame a little bit of the problem ahead of time. But could you give me a better explanation of. What is the problem with acute radiation sickness. And where do we see it across. The bay from the berkeley campus is one of the best if not the best teaching hospital in america. Ucsf in the chair of radiation oncology. Dr mary fung has told me how frustrating it is to have. Her patients succumb to cancer of the abdomen and of the pelvis. Oh things like pancreatic liver you. Try a variant. Despite the fact that she has a powerful weapon to pure those cure is a big word and the weapon is radiation as you pointed out as all technologies radiation has had a positive side in the negative side the negative side. Of course we think about weapons. We think about radiation disasters such as mobile in in the ussr. Where i went grow was born and raised three mile island Shema but then on the positive side radiation is used to determine how our teeth are doing or our lungs are doing which is particularly timely given. What's happening right now. In our nation and has also a really really powerful medicine to cure cancer. The reason it's not more widely available is what's technically known as dose limiting city and in english. That means you cannot give enough of the cure before it side effects overpower its benefits. So in dr funk's practice the physician. So i'm regurgitating. What i learned from her and other had the honor to collaborate with. She has a patient with a with a major cancer of the abdomen. Or or the pelvic area she can irradiate the tumor and eradicated. The patients do not recover because tissues that are inevitably also effective so the gut and the bone. Marrow where are aquatic stem cells live are irreversibly damaged by the radiation itself. So the patients Die off either lethal diarrhea which cannot be stopped using anything

Three Mile Island, where a meltdown forever changed nuclear energy in America, shut down Friday

"The three mile island nuclear power plants are the largest nuclear accident in the U. S. is shutting down today the Pennsylvania plant leaked large amounts of radiation after a partial meltdown in nineteen seventy nine an incident that brought stricter standards for nuclear power and put it on the back burner for decades three mile island is licensed to operate through twenty thirty four but it's going out of service after the state refused to provide financial assistance to the owner excellent generation plant shuts down at nine o'clock this morning

Remembering journalist Cokie Roberts

"And we're back back and not a surprise to anyone but the NPR family isn't the only family that is really sad today about the loss of cokie Roberts Michelle Shell and Barack Obama the former president put out a statement this comes from President Obama former President Obama Michelle and I are sad to hear about the passing cokie Roberts. She was a trail-blazing figure a role model to young women at a time when the profession was still dominated by men a constant over forty years of shifting media landscape landscape and changing world informing voters about the issues of our time and mentoring young journalists every step of the way she will be missed and we send our condolences to her family only I want to pick up on the mentoring part because we heard we heard Mahras story there. I have a note here from Susan stamper. Another of the founding mothers you just mentioned and it says she volunteered to go cover three mile island. Now people will remember of course that was the nuclear near disaster the near nuclear clear meltdown in Harrisburg Pennsylvania and I believe Nineteen seventy-nine people didn't know how dangerous it was or how dangerous is going to be Susan Rice. She volunteered to go cover. Three Mile Island said send me not one of the young ones. I've had all the children I'm GonNa have and she burned the suit. She'd worn there but you got back breath. I think of that now because she was thinking about people other than yourself. That doesn't surprise me one bit I would say that's exactly the cokie Roberts that I knew but like all stories involving legends and larger than life figures as cokie Roberts is fast becoming stories stories like that often have a different version and here's Kochi's the real reason was that I could drive. NPR At the time was driving impaired shop. several of our correspondents have been raised in Manhattan and never learned to drive a car others like Linda Wertheimer didn't drive because she had had a bad accident student when she was young and none of us wanted Nina Totenberg to drive because her eyesight is so bad so I could drive the two plus hours to Harrisburg so I was the the designated driver reporter on the scene that is beautiful. Just she was a great human being she was a great human being yes. I can say that from personal experience so what's your personal experienced him no she was just just incredibly encouraging giving nudges when nudges were needed and I mean going back to when I was a teenager and sent letters to all these NPR NPR personalities asking them how to do what they did. When I grow up she responded she called left me a message said whatever you do don't mean you're communications all right and did you follow that advice. Absolutely I majored in philosophy. There's no way I'd major in communications. cokie. Roberts told me not to all right nothing nothing against those who may be listening to majored in communications absolutely but if young people ask me for advice. What do I tell them. I just repeat cokie said be more like cokie. Be More like cokie. That's great so cokie. Roberts was this fixture on air for many many years and because she was a fixture on morning edition she frequently did her segment live from home so you know we have magical little boxes and devices that make it possible for us to be on the radio without actually doing our hair sometimes and when when you think of coke there is one moment that a lot of people remember it involves both cokie and someone named abner toast across the country. Liberal Democrats don't mm care for it either because we haven't heard much from them that was a Basset Hound and I think that was given Phillips and Edwards Condition and Abner the Basset Hound and then later because she definitely had a sense of humor she did an interview on NPR about abner the dog's appearance on morning edition he is about four years old brown and white very long ears and very sad eyes and he has been very very eager to make his radio debut. This has been a difficult task to keep him away from the microphone. This dog wants to be a radio dog and Wednesday morning. My husband happened to be up. Let him into the room next to the room. Where we were broadcasting bob. He was outside of a door behind closed doors ars while he was barking. He wasn't right at the microphone. If he had been I would have introduced him. Good lungs in that house all the way around so uh he really wanted to be on the air wasn't a case of his needing to go outside had been outside. I had been up for an hour. Just fed the beast. The dog eats. It's anything he can get. This dog can open the icebox door helps himself and the thing that really irritates me is then he doesn't close it will abner has a lot of fans conceivably good as on program here. He doesn't seem to talk on cute and I'm not sure how good he is talking to time but but he is a a a dog well worth getting to know one more appearance on morning edition and he has to join the Union. I think that's absolutely right but then of course he'll have a a good retirement plan. Thank you very much. NPR's cokie Roberts that was glorious and a great way to end on something a little bit happy happy. Thank you Steve and Mara for taking time today glad to do it and that is a wrap for today. We will be back as soon as there's the news you need to know about. I'm Tamra Keith and thank you for listening to NPR politics podcast

"And she actually got politically active, and I think she got in effect shut some of these. Things down, which is awesome. You know, the people want to turn the light switch on and expect power to be delivered. We don't know when we flip the switch coal. Right. Is it solar of win is a nuclear. I don't know. There's there's no label on, there's no special lights, which all it knows when it's cleaned up in generated from the facility in comes into my house at one hundred twenty volt I know what I'm getting it's just it's a c current alternating current. I don't know the source most of us, don't think of it in those terms. But I'll tell you what years ago, I thought of this is in talked to someone about it as, if we would have not been, so I guess, particular nuclear energy, we'd have a lot more new plants in this country. We'd be certainly a lot more efficient when it comes to energy. We'd put less of a strain on the environment as a result of this. But it's the same people who are crying, I don't want this, I want. They're also fighting against nuclear back in the day, chaining themselves to fences and everything else, I get it. It's not a little thing about Three Mile Island back in nineteen seventy nine affording a catastrophe. They're tr- noble is no little thing Fukushima. No little thing these things happen. Doesn't mean we have to tolerate. No, we learned from them and try to do better next time. But everything has some sort of inherent danger to it. Is what I'm saying in in. So it's almost like the people of what the pipeline the Duke pipeline. Okay. They want to put a bigger pipeline, and it's newer it's, it's more advanced less. Things can go wrong. But people don't want it because the old pipeline we hear horror stories from time to time things. But again, if you put the field on trucks, or on railcars doesn't that expose? More people to danger. It's safer to put it onto the ground and on the surface of them. So everything has a ripple effect. I am very, very pro nuclear I think we need more plants quite honestly, slowly. Seven hundred wwl twenty seven hundred w l w looking into the background of another mass killer.

It was the government. That was the complete disastrous. You'd expect though kidding.

They vilify nuclear power at the same time. They warn us about climate change nuclear power. The easiest solution to climate change known to man. It's an unlimited amount of mission free electricity and you can't do that the easiest way to spot, the actual environmentalists and person. Who's a it was using it for political gain if they will tell you what. Yes, nuclear power, please bring it on. They are a real environmentalist. They actually care about LA warming. There's a whole group of people who are on the far left, who really care about global warming that are advocating for nuclear power, and at least you could take them seriously. Like here is okay. We have this amazing technology that has killed in its entire existence. Fifty nine people all of them at Chernobyl base. I mean, people have fallen at plants and stuff, but I'm talking about actual meltdowns, and we China's syndrome when that movie. Yeah. That was specifically saw that documentary.

There's another nuclear disaster movie that was filmed here in Dallas. Street streep. That is terrible at all. But the thing is excellent. If you. Interesting. It's worth watching if you just like good television is worth watching. But let me give you a third reason if you happen to be considering voting for, let's say Bernie Sanders. If you know someone who happens to be the type of person who might pull a lever for Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren or anyone else who thinks AFC democratic socialism's, the way to go. It's a must watch for those because you see exactly the way these governments operates. Sure. Do it was, it's, it's a amazing to see as like, oh my God. Because again, when you prioritize the collective over individuals you get this mindset and let me give you a great example of this is from episode one of turnover, and it is the to set the scene here. The meltdown has happened. They realized something serious going on. But there's a disagreement as to what they should do. And how bad it is a lot of the people there. Like, look, it's not it's nothing serious. We've already. Contained it everything's gonna be fine. And there's just this, the, the inkling of other people who are, like, hey, like it seems to be a lot worse than you're saying, we should evacuate our families. Get people out of here, and they're gonna cause a panic and there in the middle of this back and forth, who's going to win the people saying it's not a big deal or the people who are worried about their families. And so as is all happening. There's, there's a an old old time, socialist guy's been around a while. He's sitting in the back room, he's just watching all this happen. And as the arguing sort of builds up, he taps, his cane on the floor and everyone just dropped silent to listen to what this old school guy is about to say and listen to this speech and play it to anyone who wants to vote for Bernie Sanders because this is how with always ends up wasn't sometimes..

"It's great that come AT, and T and other companies are planning on dealing with climate change. I'm a volunteer citizens climate lobby and we've got a bipartisan Bill in congress called the energy innovation act to greatly reduce being house gas emissions worldwide. And I was winning AT and T is doing anything to help congress address the cause of climate change. So when I can say that again, I'm not a policy person. So I apologize. But I will kind of talk about largely what we're doing in that area. So, you know, sounds like which talking about is mitigation, right? So how to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that are that are going into the air. And we take that very seriously that AT and T and to that point last year in two thousand eighteen we were the second largest corporate buyers of renewable energy in the United States. We announced eight hundred twenty megawatts worth of deals, so we are committed definitely to reduce our own carbon footprint, and we often encourage others to do the same. Ron let me ask you something. I've asked for I'm going to say forty five years going back to the energy crisis. The seventies Three Mile Island, all kinds of all kinds of I guess infrastructure are insured and insurance companies have a lot to say about the future of an industry about whether they're going to ensure they can ensure your nuclear power plant or not right? They very interested in your climate modeling. Yes, they're interested in our product and similar product similar kind of research that is going on the the the challenge for a company like insurance company depends on the scale they're operating somebody who's just selling a car insurance is as a Glenn hop. He's outlook their outlook is about five years. So they really are not worried about climate change. But the ones that are actually ensure infrastructure and big houses and things like they're actually started thinking about it. And the the the great thing with eighty and T that happened the conversation we need to have insurance companies that they Dan did the fuss three or four weeks. We just kind of figured out what they think climate change is. And what we think they need, and it was actually took a lot of discussion to come to a common ground. Okay. What you guys are talking about is how the water depth change in my in some so so I think that kind of conversation has not happened at least for me with the insurance companies. I talked to a lot of them and. They are still a phys-. They're trying to find out how they managed is risk. And how the because restatements they use are based on historical climate change Cl climate data. So how do I act act today? And what is the competent advantage in in in that for me, if I increased my rates because climate is changing and nobody else is doing so. Say a new tool that that they can use their they didn't have four. All right. I think of this as a product innovation somewhat. So yeah, we've run out of time a great topic of discussion. Thank you, both the route kinda mardi is chief scientist at the environmental science division at Argonne, National Laboratory, and then Lemont, Illinois, Shannon. Carol director of environmental sustainability island get that word right at AT and T based in Dallas. Thank you both for this. Great discussion. Thank you. Thank you. Facebook may not be attracting new members like at once wanted, but it's still the largest social networking site. With over two billion users think about how much time you have spent carefully. Curated your digital self on the site. Social media is many ways the record keeper of our lives and together with all the fake news and hate speech in garbage on the internet.

I'm volunteer citizens climate lobby and we've got a bipartisan Bill in congress called the energy innovation act to greatly reduce being has gas emissions worldwide. And I was wondering if AT and T is doing anything to help congress address the cause of climate change. So when I can say that again, I'm not a policy person. So I do apologize. But I will kind of talk about largely what we're doing in that area. So, you know, sounds like what you're talking about is mitigation. Right. So how to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that are that are going into the air. And we take that very seriously that AT and T and to that point last year in two thousand eighteen we were the second largest corporate buyers of renewable energy in the United States. We now eight hundred twenty megawatts worth of deals, so we are committed definitely to reduce our own carbon footprint, and we often encourage others to do the same row. Let me ask you something. I've asked for I'm going to say forty five. Going back to the energy crisis or the seventies Three Mile Island, all kinds of all kinds of I guess infrastructure are in short and insurance companies have a lot to say about the future of an industry about whether they're going to ensure they ensure your nuclear power plant or not, right? They very interested in your climate modeling. Yes. Dare interested in our product and similar product similar kind of research that is going on that the challenge for a company like insurance company depends on the scale they're operating somebody who's just selling a car insurance as a. Glenn is outlook is their outlook is about five years. So they really are not worried about climate change. But the ones that are actually ensure infrastructure and big houses and things like they're actually started thinking about it. And the the the great thing with AT and T that happened the conversation we need to have insurance companies that they Dan did fuss three four weeks. We just kind of figured out what they think climate change is. And what we think they need, and it was actually took a lot of discussion to come to a common ground that. Okay. What you guys are talking about is how will the water depth change in my in some grits. So I think that kind of conversation has not happened at least for me with the insurance companies. I talked to a lot of them, and they are still at this. Phase. They're trying to find out how they managed is risk and how the because red stables they use are based on historical climate change, Cl climate data. So how do I act act today? And what is the competent advantage in in? In in that for me, if I increase my rates because climate is changing and nobody else is doing so. A new tool that that they can use it. They didn't have for. All right. I think of this as a product innovation somewhat. So we've run out of time. Oh, great topic of discussion. Thank you. Both. Route kind of Marta is chief scientist at the environmental science division at Argonne, National Laboratory, and then Lemont, Illinois, Shannon. Carol director of environmental say sustainability island get that word right at AT and T based in Dallas. Thank you both for this. Great discussion. Thank you. Thank you.

"three mile island" Discussed on On Being with Krista Tippett

"And you really work with people to hold onto that hold to take their grief seriously, right or not to hold onto it so much as to not be afraid of it. Because that grief if you are afraid of it and pave it over clampdown, you shut down and the kind of apathy and. Closedown? Denial are difficulty in looking at what we're doing to our world stems not from callous, indifference or ignorance so much is it stems from fear of pain. And I that was a big learning for me as I was organizing around nuclear power and around at the time of Three Mile Island catastrophe around chair noble, and so then, but I saw it it it it it relates to everything it relates to what's in our food. And it relates to the clearcut of our force it relates to the contamination of our rivers and oceans, so that became actually perhaps the most a pivotal point in the. I don't know the landscape of my life that dance with despair that to see how we are called to not run from the discomfort, a not run from the grief for the feelings of outrage or even fear, but and we certainly must, but but to recognize them as these strong inner responses as stemming not from some private pet Thala J or some. Neurosis we've inherited from my childhood wounds, or what have you? But that they stemmed from our intrigues assistance with all life, and that if we can be fearless to be with our pain. It turns it doesn't stay static in it only doesn't change if we refuse to look at it. But when we look at it when we take it in our hands when we can just be with it and keep breathing then it turns it turns to reveal its other face and the other face of our pain for the world is our love for the world are absolutely inseparable connectedness with all life. And this is where the whole thinking, you know, addenda fide with both the Buddhist teachings and deep ecology have been very telling for me. And I think again. In in even thinking that way that oppo Eric mindset is more useful than the kind of fact based right or argument based way, we tend to approach problems culturally, even precisely the same ecological, right? Right. That keeps people from even mentioning how distressed they are. Because they think that they need to have all the facts and figures since two this ticks to show that they intellectually control. Stir the problem. Yeah. But we get overwhelmed by the facts and the figures, and the pictures, we we they they're debilitating their paralyzing as you say, it's it's also that we don't really know how to do well with grief and turn it into something else. But I think that a lot as journalist is somebody who works in media. So there is. It's a double edged sword, isn't it because he wanted to portray. I mean, say you're taking care of your mother, and she's dying of cancer or whatever. And you can't eat won't. I can't go in her house in a room because I don't wanna look at her. But if you love her you want to be with her. If if we love our world way, we're able to see the scum of oil spreading across the Gulf where able to see what it's doing to the wetlands marshes what it's doing to the dolphin sin, the gulls and. When you love something. You don't your love doesn't say. Well, too bad. My kid has leukemia. So I won't go near her. It's just the opposite. Do you think? Do you think that what what what is in power in moments?.

40th anniversary of Three Mile Island accident

"One of the stories that that victory in the news at the top of the show involved a Three Mile Island for those people who don't remember. There was a nuclear meltdown at a power plant in Pennsylvania. And. It was a it was a, you know, it was it was really really scary. And what happened was it was the nuclear power plants, south central Pennsylvania country Mile Island in March of nineteen Seventy-nine on this date March twentieth. Nineteen seventy nine series of mechanical and human errors of the plant caused the worst commercial nuclear accident in US history, resulting in a partial meltdown that released dangerous radioactive gases into the atmosphere. Three Mile Island stoked public fears about nuclear power and nuclear power plants have been built in the United States since that accident, and then unbelievably two weeks later, the film, the China syndrome was released which of course, logically. Also turns forty years old this year. The thriller called the China syndrome starring Jane Fonda, Jack Lemmon and Michael Douglas dealt with the aftermath of a fictional nuclear meltdown at reactor outside of Los Angeles. The nuclear industry at the time dismissed the China's central plows farfetched, but then you know, obviously, they couldn't do it anymore. So I did not know that that happened today. And I remember it vividly. Remember when Three Mile Island app was thirteen years old and everybody was freaking out about nuclear power. And everybody was freaking out about the accident. And then this movie China syndrome comes out. And of course, then the box office goes through the roof for that movie because real life events were being portrayed are these these fictional events in the movie were being actually really happening in real life. And so the box office just went through the through the roof with that. And it's also a great movie if you've never seen China syndrome another movie that celebrating its fortieth anniversary this year. You should see it. It is. It's it's a great thriller. It's really says a lot about not just nuclear power. But about the media. And. Great performances all the way around. Jane Fonda is great any Michael Douglas's. Great input. Especially Jack Lemmon Jack Lemmon is unbelievably great in the China's central. So that the Three Mile Island accident happened today forty years ago and China's syndrome came out at this time to

"Every hour on NewsRadio one thousand KT. Okay. We are back with Scott ports line, Scott. We were talking about mutants just how severe could this be could absolutely changing human rights to the point where we're barely recognizable. So what was the energy emitted by radiation, it causes cellular damage within the body? And when the cells attempt to repair themselves that a lot of times, they're successful. Sometimes the cells die once in a while the cells start dividing and a very odd way. And that becomes a cancer in many cases. So what happens to the DNA? There can be some information. That's knocked off the DNA chain and the cell will survive in a healthy manner. But be missing certain information. So you could be born without the gene to protect you from a certain at allow like some people have trout troubles with peanut allergy. I don't know if there's a peanut allergy, gene or not or you know, protection. But whatever the defect is that is occurring in your DNA, and cause you to have a problematic life now as it gets really bad with DNA. It could literally mutate the human body to where our is no longer are working or maybe we don't have arms are more than a foot long. Who knows? I mean, all of these anything's possible, it is science fiction at that point. But it's real it is very real. Indeed. Now, let's go ahead a little bit more about mutations that I'm proud of with Three Mile Island alert, the group here in Harrisburg, keep an eye on the nuclear plant. We have one member who collected chance that's appear to be mutated following the accident. Now, she on the morning of the accident had that metallic tastes her mouth and started noticing in the next year or two that some of the plants and trees. And leaves work foreign properly, so she collected over three hundred specimens in documented where and when and what the defects are. We just passed a year made a database and are sending it to the Smithsonian who is accepting it. It's very rare to have something accepted by the Smithsonian, but under botany page where a lot of people don't realize it's actually a Premiere World, science laboratory and science museum wonder botany page. It says that one of their missions is to study how man is affecting plant life. So they were more than happy to hear that we were going to send them something that in the future. They will have new tools and techniques to determine whether radiation from Three Mile Island. Actually, did call the misshapen plants. Now, what about the waist now from these plants where do we dispose them? They were talking about yakim the mountains. But what do we do with this stuff? Yeah. That's amazing. Problem and now plants are starting to store them in the parking lot is I like to say and dry cask storage units. Those are actually safer than the spent fuel pools, which are very risky, but I'm not happy about the waste cash being at Three Mile Island. If they go to that if they extend the life for three mile, and they're about to run out of spent fuel pool space, and that means stable put these two and a half miles from an international airport on a river that sludge, in fact, when Tim I was under construction the flood the river ended up in the basement of reactor buildings what was going to become two buildings. So I really worry. And then, of course, these are terrorist targets once they start moving stuff on the highways and on the railways, and I've witnessed rule breaking. If you go to our website T M I A dot com, you'll be able to find some videos. There's a link you can. The video that we posted. I have one where I'm explaining how I saw train on the third day in a row of ninety six degree going hauling high level nuclear waste past Harrisburg, and they're just been a derailment the day before in Washington DC because of the high temperatures warping detracts now, why isn't there a rule that these trains cannot move like this after derailments already happened? Let alone, you know, three days in a row ninety six degree. They should not even be moving point. Let's take some calls for you, Scott. Let's start by going to Elaine and Seattle west of the Rockies. Elaine. Welcome to the program. Thank you. Good evening, gentlemen. My question was concerning the Shema, and if the radiation leakage there had been fully contained not at all. In fact, they're they're still leaking hundreds of gallons of water hundreds of tons of water from the. Groundwater that seeping in to the reactor building. And there are some reports that there is still spraying water on those records. But I don't think that's correct. Wants to secrecy starts hard to get exact information, and the confusion that goes on even gets passed around among some of the experts. So I can't give definition of exactly where all that radiation is coming from. But we know that involves the groundwater, and there's nothing they can do about it. They tried to build an ice wall underneath and everybody is at any common sense with a little bit of engineering skill realized that was not going to work, and it didn't work. So they're actually still now planning to dump all those tanks of radioactive water stored around the site into the ocean after they filter it somewhat, but you can't filter it all and it's a tremendous amount of radiation radiation, and you can't filter tritium because tritium is water. And there's just no way to get that out of the system cells. They're going to be polluting their own fishery and the whole world in in the end thirteen municipalities affected by Fukushima by. Reported that about five hundred seventy three deaths have been certified as deaths disaster related. That's huge. Isn't it? Well, not really because it's much huger than that. They're probably saying that those are desk caused by stress and suicides and things like that. It's probably not even they're not saying that about radiation, the government's claiming no one was harmed by the radiation. How could they say that? Because this thing could take years for people to die off. Right. Oh, absolutely. That's correct. But what we saw here at Three Mile Island indicates to us that these cancers and thyroid problems leukemia's do develop it within the first two years. And that was unexpected see this is all big experiment that the human race is taking on an speaking of experiments. That's what caused your noble. They were doing attached to see what would happen if they lost power to the reactor and would turbine keep spinning long enough to bring up a system that would supply electricity to itself. Well, we have rules here in the United States not to do those kinds of tests. But right now at Three Mile Island. We have a problem with the steam generators that I found when they replaced the steam generator. That's a very big piece of equipment that removes all the heat from the reactor, and you need them for safety system specially during an emergency. But ours could self. Struck because the new design it came from a French company called Ariba. In fact, they had a big scandal where they falsified a lot of safety documents a couple of years back and they had to go bankrupt. And there's a blurry line between the reactor programs in France because the government has backing all of them. And in fact, Areva probably declared bankruptcy before, but we can't determine that for certain TMI, these steam generators come came from Riva, and they have a manufacturing defect which caused the steam to tobacco bow close together and rub against each other and wear and that's where the reactor coolant passes through those tubes. And if they wear enough then you have a loss of coolant accident. He had a steam to rupture, and in this particular case would also be called a containment bypass accident where radiation is really released directly from the reactor to deter. Building. And then there's no filters, no containment building. And it goes into environment. And it's something that they nuclear energy commission is very afraid if that were to ever happen. How does Astor that would be? Let's go to Thomas in LA Hoya, California, Tom go ahead. Hi, george. Thank you for taking my call shot. Great research, truly appreciated Scott. I wanted to ask you about Los Angeles and here in Los Angeles. We're familiar with the Santa no fray reactor, but there's another reactor, and that's the Santa Susanna test facility and before Three Mile Island. They had a nuclear meltdown which released more radioactive atmospheric plume several times more than Three Mile Island over west, Los Angeles. And the only reason why we know about this. Yes. Because of various reporters filing freedom of information act request on Santa Susanna, which is now currently administered by NASA and Boeing, so I was wondering if you want to comment or if you have any more information on the fantasy Zana test facility. You're exactly right with one exception. And that is that the wasn't so much the reporter. I it started with Daniel Hirsch from the committee to bridge the gap, and George you've got to get him on the program. Okay. The Discovery Channel. Or discover magazine I believe it's magazine. Working on on an article now about that fantasy Zana accident because it really is bigger than Three Mile Island. I trust Dan Hirsch. He's the one that told me about it. And that it was worse than Three Mile Island. I believe he's correct. And it's it's just awful the cover up that one on there. And there were people in Los Angeles who definitely got kanter's following that. Horrible situation. My gosh. Stephen Juneau, Alaska. Go ahead, Steven. Oh, hi, George. How you doing tonight? Okay. Thank you. Hey, I just got a couple of quick questions. The US navy vessels and all the nuclear vessels that are around the world. The United States has almost a hundred nuclear vessels Soviets about sixty I guess about probably twenty to thirty for the Chinese. And then there's the French and the and the Great Britain has got about twenty h what happens if those things get, you know, attacked we had the thresher and the scorpion went down the sixties. And they said there was no nuclear released from that. Just what what would happen if we got into war, and he thinks started getting blown up what destroy all the sea life in the oceans. I don't think. So of course, it depends on how many you're talking about. There could actually the zones in the ocean where there's no life that lives on the floor of the ocean. Since fish can move around a lot that that would be almost impossible to detect the exact causes. But one thing that the military likes you say is we've never had any problems with our reactors and they're safe. Well, you know, what they're doing is taken away squatter with the contaminates radiation, and the dispersing it at sea, and they're not gonna tell you they're doing after but that goes on. And that's how I in fact, some of the waste from the military actors goes past my home seven hundred feet away. That's where I saw the train tracks on that day. You just you want submarine disaster. Could be a mess. You know what? Oh, yeah. It depends like in England they had a near miss a few years ago with a nuclear sub. And if that happens, you know within a few miles of your coast. Oh, my the same thing as a nuclear power plant. Maybe not on as big a scale like you certainly don't want to weapons involved with that either. And and look what's happening in the Arctic Ocean above Russia where their nuclear submarine fleet is rusting away and contaminating that the Arctic Ocean and the likes to see Weeden and so forth. I it's bad. Kevin is truck driving in Saskatchewan and Canada. Welcome to the program. Kev. Go ahead. George. Thank you very much first time longtime. Well, thank you. Hey, so you keep glazing over the Fukushima. Comment. More on maybe the school reactors. That are kind of missing I think, and then the Olympics is going to be coming up right away, and Japan and also the food that they're growing right beside all the reactors and all the rights and everything. And also, I don't know if you guys ever get Dana, the Ford on talk about all this also great guy. All right. Food the Olympics all these problems at Fukushima, Scott. Well, they're definitely it's going to be some problems with the food, and there are particles that have showed up even in Tokyo Arnie Gunderson has measured that there should be a way if the government wanted to to detect all this food and get rid of it or prevent it from being marketed, but you know, they're even black market for that where they may send that food to for instance, China and China we'll put another label on it and sell it. Now that's happened with other things that have been damaged by.

I mean, all of these anything's possible, it is science fiction at that point. But it's real. Yeah. It is very real. Indeed. Now, let's go ahead a little bit more about mutation. I'm proud of with Three Mile Island alert, the group here in Harrisburg that keeps an eye on the nuclear plant. We have one member who collected plants that's appear to be mutated following the accident. Now, she on the morning of the accident had that metallic taste mouth and started noticing in the next year or two that some of the plants. And trees leaves work foreign properly, so she collected over three hundred specimens undocumented where and when and what the defects are. We just passed a year made a data face and are sending it to the Smithsonian who is accepting it. It's very rare to have something accepted by the Smithsonian, but owner botany page. Well, a lot of people don't realize it's actually a Premiere World, science laboratory and science museum wonder botany page. It says that one of their missions is to study how man is acting plant lights. So they were more than happy to hear that we were going to send them something that in the future. They will have new tools and techniques that determine whether radiation from Three Mile Island, actually, they'd caused the misshapen plants. Now, what about the waist now from these plants where do we dispose them? They were talking about yakim the mountains. But what do we do with this stuff? Yeah. That's. A major problem. And now plans are starting to store them in the parking lot as I like to say and dry cask storage units. Those are actually safer than the spent fuel pools, which are very risky, but I'm not happy about the waste cash being at Three Mile Island. If they go to that if they extend the life for three mile, and they're about to run out of spent fuel pull space, and that means stable put these two and a half miles from international airport on a river that sludge in fact, when TMI was under construction the flood the river ended up in the basement of reactor buildings what was going to become the buildings. So I really worry. And then of course, he's a terrorist targets once they start moving this stuff on the highways and on railways, and I've witnessed rule raking. If you go to our website T M I A dot com, you'll be able to find some videos. There's a. Linke can see the video that we posted. I have one where I'm explaining how high saw train on the third day in a row of ninety six degree heat going hauling high level nuclear waste past Harrisburg. And there had just been a derailment the day before in Washington DC because of the high temperatures warping detracts now, why isn't the role that these trains cannot move like this after derailments already happened? Let alone, you know, three days in a row of ninety six degree. They should not even be moving point. Let's take some calls for you, Scott. Let's start by going to Elaine and Seattle west of the Rockies. Elaine. Welcome to the program. Thank you. Good evening, gentlemen. My question was. Concerning Kashima, and is the radiation leakage. There has been fully contained not at all. In fact, they're they're still leaking hundreds of gallons of water hundreds of tons of water. From the ground water that's seeping in to the reactor building. And there are some reports that they're still spraying water on those records. But I don't think that's correct. You know, once the secrecy starts, it's hard to get information and the confusion that goes on even gets passed around among some of the experts. So I can't give you a definition of exactly where all that radiation coming from. But we know that involves the groundwater, and there's nothing they can do about it. They tried to build an ice wall underneath and everybody is who had any commonsense with a little bit of engineering skill realize that was not going to work, and it didn't work. So they're actually still now planning to dump all those tanks of radioactive water stored around the site into the ocean after they filter it somewhat, but you can't filter at all, and it's a tremendous amount of radiation radiation, and you can't filter tritium because him is water. And there's just no way to get that out of the system. So they're gonna be polluting their own fishery, then the whole world in in the end thirteen municipalities affected by Fukushima. Reported that about five hundred seventy three deaths have been certified as disaster related. That's huge. Isn't it? Well, not really because it's much huger. Then that they're probably saying that those are deaths caused by stress and suicides and things like that. It's probably not even they're not saying that about radiation, the government's claiming no one was harmed by radiation. You know, what how could they say that? Because this thing could take years for people to die off. Right. Oh, absolutely. That's correct. But what we saw here at Three Mile Island indicates to us that these cancers and thyroid problems leukemia's do develop it within the first two years, and that was unexpected. This is all a big experiment that the human race is taking on and speaking of experiments, that's what caused her noble. They were doing a test to see what would happen if they lost power to the reactor, and the turbine keep spinning long enough to bring up a system that would supply electricity to itself. Well, we have rules here in the United States not to do those kind of tests. But right now at Three Mile Island. We have a problem with the steam generators that I found when they replaced the steam generator. That's a very big piece of equipment that removes all the heat from the reactor, and you need them for safety systems specially during an emergency. But ours could self this. Struck because the new design it came from a French company called Areva. In fact, they had a big scandal where they falsified a lot of safety documents a couple of years back and they had to go bankrupt. And there's a blurry line between reactor programs in France because the government has backing all them and and factory at probably declared bankruptcy before. But we can't be terminated for certain TMI these steam generators come came from a Riva, and they have a manufacturing defect which caused the steam tubes. Dubose both close together and rub against each other and wear and that's where the reactor cooling passes through those tubes. And if they wear enough, then you have a loss of coolant accident, you have a steam to rupture, and in this particular case, what else would be called a containment bypass accident where radiation is really released directly from the reactor to determine. Building. And then there's no filters, no containment building. And it goes into the environment. And it's something that they nuclear energy Terry commission is very afraid if that were to ever happen. How does Astor's that would be? Let's go to Thomas in LA Hoya, California, Tom go ahead. Hi, george. Thank you for taking my call shot. Great research, truly appreciate it. Scott. I wanted to ask you about Los Angeles and here in Los Angeles. We're familiar with the San Onofre reactor, but there's another reactor, and that's the Santa Susanna test facility. And before Three Mile Island. They had a nuclear meltdown which released more radioactive atmosphere plume several times more than Three Mile Island over west, Los Angeles. And the only reason why we know about this is because of various reporters filing freedom of information act request on Santa Susanna, which is now correctly administered by NASA and Boeing, so I was wondering if you would comment or if you have any more information on the fantasy Zana test facility. You're exactly right with one exception. And that is that the wasn't so much the reporters it started with Daniel Hirsch from the committee that bridge the gap and George you've got to get him on the program. Discover channel or discover magazine I believe it's magazine working on on an article now about that fantasies Anna accent because it really is bigger than Three Mile Island. I trust Dan Hirsch. He's the one that told me about it. And that it was worse than Three Mile Island. I believe he's correct. And it's it's just awful the cover up that one on there. And there were people in Los Angeles who definitely got cancer following that horrible situation. My gosh. Stephen Juneau, Alaska. Go ahead. Stephen. Oh, hi, George. How you doing tonight? Okay. Thank you. He's got a couple of quick questions. The US navy vessels and all the nuclear vessels that are around the world. Like, the United States has almost a hundred nuclear vessels Soviets about sixty. I guess about probably twenty to thirty for the Chinese. And then there's the French and the and then Great Britain has got about twenty h what happens if those things get, you know, attacked we had the thresher and the scorpion went down the sixties. And they said there was no nuclear released from that. Just what what would happen if we got into war, and he thinks started getting blown up. Would it destroyed all the sea life in the oceans? I don't think. So of course, it depends on how many you're talking about. There could actually the zones in the ocean where there's no life that lives on the floor of the ocean. Fish can move around a lot that would be almost impossible to detect exact Gaza's. But one thing that the military likes to say is we've never had any problems with our reactors and they're safe. Well, you know, what they're doing is taken away slaughter with the contaminants and the radiation and dispersing it at sea. And they're not gonna tell you. They're doing that goes on. And that's how I in fact, some of the waste from the military actors goes past my home seven hundred feet away. That's where I saw the train tracks on that day. But. Just you you want submarine disaster. Could be a mess. You know what? Oh, yeah. It depends like in England they had a near miss a few years ago with a nuclear sub. And if that happens, you know within a few miles of your coast. Oh, my you're the same thing as I nuclear power plant. Maybe not on as big a scale like you certainly don't want the weapons involved with that either. And and look what's happened in the Arctic Ocean above Russia where their nuclear submarine fleet is a rusting away and contaminating that the Arctic Ocean and the life the seaweed and so forth. I it's bad. Kevin is truck driving in Saskatchewan and Canada. Welcome to the program. Kev. Go ahead. George. Thank you very much first time longtime. Thank you. Hey, so you could glaze over the Fukushima. ABC's comment more on maybe the school rockers there. Better kind of missing I think, and then the Olympics are going to be coming up right away in Japan. And also the foods that are growing right beside all the reactors and all the rights and everything..

"We are back with Scott ports line, Scott. We were talking about mutants just how severe could this be what could absolutely change the human rights to the point where we're barely recognizable. So what happened was the energy emitted by radiation, it causes cellular damage within the body. And when the cells attempt to repair themselves that a lot of times, they're successful. Sometimes the cells die once in a while the cells start dividing in a very odd way. And that becomes a cancer in many cases. So what happens to the DNA? There can be some information that's knocked off the DNA chain, and it'll survive in a healthy manner, but be missing certain information. So you could be born without the gene protect you from a certain at allow like some people have trout troubles with. Peanut allergy. I don't know if there's a peanut allergy, gene or not or you know, protection. But whatever the defect is. Occurring in your DNA. Concoct you to have a a problematic life now as it gets really bad with DNA.

"Three Mile Island nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania seems almost like something out of a science fiction horror film, cover of time magazine captured the national mood of chaos confusion and fear the emergency red phrase nuclear nightmare, slashed across the dark, the dark black cooling towers of the plant. There was no livestream video as there would be after the Fukushima accident that the public could imagine the scene inside the reactor just twelve days before the accident, the China syndrome, a feature films starring John Jane Fonda and Michael Douglas as reporters who uncover a major incident nuclear plant had been released perhaps the hundreds of journalists gathered outside Harrisburg believed they to woodland such a story. It started on March twenty eighth at around four AM when a water pump stopped working the failed pump affected the steam generators large cylinders filled with many tiny metal tubes. It helped her in hot water from the nuclear engine into steam. So that the turbines can generate electricity. When the flow of water was cut off this massive heat exchange stopped working, creating the conditions for a serious accident. The reactor engine was immediately turned off the Salang as the reactor fuel remained hot which it would for quite some time. It's natural radioactive decay would continue producing enough heat called decay heat to melt through the metal containers. Enclosing the reactor fuel the same problem with later affect Fukushima. And then he goes through the whole process their confessions of a rogue nuclear regulator by Gregory beat Jacksonville. This is the Tom Hartman program. And greetings, my friends.

"The Three Mile Island nuclear meltdown and Long Island. How many ever decades ago? No one got sick. They did a study. I think they've they tracked everyone within a certain mile radius of the of the Three Mile Island nuclear plant, and they tracked him for twenty years to find any sort of health issue at all, but the people there, and they they stopped tracking them because there were none. There wasn't even anything worth continuing to study nothing. No problem. And if I remember serves me, the Chernobyl deaths were due to people. The rescue crews helicopter crashed. They're trying to evacuate. People are put out the fires. So there are no no even long term consequences from that one. And that's the worst ever and that was much of Soviets doing it. We've Vance since then. We shouldn't be scared of nuclear not at all. It's a stupid because here up the road. We tore down one of our nuclear power plants. She's so anyway, a little perspective here, and I did not realize this but the uranium that's needed to run a nuclear power plant. I have no had no perspective for this. But I've heard the argument that everything has a cost right? Everything's a trade off. Everything. Things a free lunch true with energy to write some nuclear has a consequence and uranium is one of them. You've got to get the uranium, and then you have to dispose of the used uranium. So there's a cost there needs to be considered. So, but I have no vision of how much uranium's needed. So I got the number here. So the amount of uranium that's needed for a you for your entire life's worth of energy in America, which is very different than the amount of energy needed for someone in India, for instance, as we're talking about, but for you, you're a you're a glutton for energy. Our shower handle broke this morning in our house, and we had to turn the water off. And I gotta turn the water off until I can go to Home Depot after the show today. So it's like how are we gonna make it the day without any water? Oh, we got a bunch of bottle water. Okay. Fine. I guess it's a little less difficult. I think we can glutton's like we can't imagine going five hours without water in our house, Santana electric gluttons for energy. So your lifetime of energy uranium the amount of uranium needed. To supply. Lifetime of your energy needs is the amount of uranium of soda can. So in America. If we took all the uranium that we've used in the last fifty years. You could fit all of it. In a football field. Three stories tall. So imagine a warehouse. Three stories three story tall warehouse. That's all the uranium. We've used in America in the last fifty years you're put in that warehouse. Put in the middle of the of never heard anyone. So what do you think? What do you think? Sports arena. Maybe he's at the same volume as a three story tall football field sports arenas as long as football field. But it's much taller. Maybe that could do the math on that. But that that's probably about right to all the uranium and it's been sports arena..

"Hey, thunder where they destruct this for the fear. That's an obvious reference to the sphere Cornelie in between the World Trade Center towers in the plaza that movie was released on September twenty first nineteen ninety nine after the Simpson episodes and two years before the actual event again almost to the day of nine eleven. I mean that just can't be. I mean that is just so secret mystic. So timed out. I mean, it's almost impossible to reconcile. I mean, I I try to talk about it in my book for ten I come on and give you a definitive answer. No. It's just like no one can just because it's so. Yes. I mean, the the the alternative is if it's not just happenstance. It's or it's it's part of this. You know, this young and collective unconscious. The third alternative is of course, the most disturbing and that is that it is deliberate predictive programming which means that the the the exact producers or whomever working on the show has some foreknowledge of these horrific events, and that is almost it's almost too cynical. And and sinister to even contemplate I agree with you. But the problem is you we have to talk about it. I mean, I agree. I totally agree. Is it some sort of collective unconsciousness at work where you know, the theory of forms where he's symbols are inherited ten they also predicted or is it some sort of foreknowledge of some kind. I mean, it's definitely disturbing to talk about. I mean, there are other examples of it with nine eleven. I mean, we talked about the Donald Trump stuff is interesting. We talked about one that no one knows about Vic left office. I can't remember the year. I believe it's seventy nine or seventy eight. There was a movie that was released called the trying to sit bro. Yes. Which is about a nuclear reactor melting down. Yes. Michael Douglas and Jack Lemmon nineteen seventy five released and then two weeks later was Three Mile Island two weeks later. So that's another fascinating one that seems to get less Goff. So there are instances of this. I mean, it's not a one time thing. But I mean, come on. I mean, they definitely have knowledge this. No, I I mean, I don't think anyone ten is a lawyer. I only present the evidence, but it is something that is very disturbing. But I think it's worth talking about it definitely wording worthy of discussion because it happened. It it it is a documentum bowl of of can I? Explain it. No, I can't you know, like, you said the alternative is. But someone has foreknowledge of this, and that seems almost impossible. But that may be something words just left to deal with. We've got about two minutes before we break here at the bottom of the hour. But let's just start this conversation will continue on. And what do you mean by occult casting? Oh, absolutely. This is this is something that I I talked about in the first movie book, and I talked about it in the in the second. This is where an actor or an actress is brought in to play a specific part in the movie, and they're relying on their cultural valances from previous film to to affect your subconscious mind to conjure in your subconscious mind and earlier performance, and instead that performance and its surrounding the policy into the Carnell any ample this there there are several of them. When I first started researching. This started noticing it. I thought it was somewhat of an isolated event. I do see it a little more and more now on these guys are very clever with this.

"Regulator by Gregory be Jackson. Former chairman of the us Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Let's start with the last paragraph of chapter one. And then I'll start reading chapter two in hindsight. The Fukushima incident revealed what has long been the sad truth about nuclear safety the nuclear power industry has developed too much control over the NRC and congress in the aftermath of the accident. I found myself moving from my role as a scientist impressed by nuclear power to a fierce nuclear safety advocate. I now believe that nuclear power is more hazardous. Than it's worth because the industry relies too much control and his own regulation that continued use of nuclear power will lead to catastrophe in this country or somewhere else in the world. This is a truth. We must all confront chapter to the Fukushima accident. Japan was not the first accident to belie the promise of nuclear power in its early years the nuclear commercial nuclear industry, had only a limited understanding of the operation science, and engineering of actual power plants. This ignorance led to the first major nuclear power plant accident, just outside Harrisburg, the state capital of Pennsylvania in nineteen seventy nine. Three Mile Island prompted a flurry of reforms and a pile of promises that the public would be protected from future nuclear calamities through the mid nineteen eighties. It appeared these promises were being kept construction on new plants slowly resumed without major accidents. Then suddenly strange radiation, measurements were detected in Sweden. Excuse me, governments in Europe. And throughout the world soon learned that a disaster had occurred at the chair noble nuclear power plant in the Soviet Union. Developing photograph in a bath of chemicals, the reality of nuclear power was starting to come clear one nuclear accident was an oversight a mistake in aberration to nuclear accidents hinted at a serious problem with the technology. A third with cement the conclusion than nuclear power plants are simply going to have accidents on a relatively consistent schedule after Three Mile Island after Chernobyl the third incident. Accident nearly occurred in two thousand and two at the troubled Davis Bessie nuclear power plant in Ohio. The problem is that with each new accident all the people in charge of nuclear safety seemed to revert to the belief that this one would be the last one as chairman of the NRC I battled nearly every day against this instinct to believe that the worst was over you can prepare for the next accident only if you get all the players to admit that the next one is coming. Even if and when are impossible to predict before Fukushima too, many people I encountered simply did not believe the next one would ever come. Their view is not surprising accidents are rare and Chernobyl and through mail island happened decades earlier, I continue to believe I could challenge this complacency. I seized one opportunity just after I became chairman. Four days before President Obama tap. It'll lead the Commission I spoke at a conference organized by the North American young generation in nuclear an industry group of professionals entering the field as nuclear operators designers of reactors or academic experts in nuclear technology, as I looked out at the crowd at dawn on me that many of these people had never lived through a nuclear power accident. Even if I had been only nine years old when Three Mile Island occurred when Chernobyl happened. I was a teenager more worried about surviving my freshman year of high school than about nuclear disaster. The people I was speaking to or even younger, I wonder how they hit experienced these seminal events. Meena scientists I decided to conduct an experiment. I asked everyone in the audience to stand if they were born after nineteen Seventy-nine the three year island the year the year of Three Mile Island. Nearly everyone stood after they sat down. I asked them to stand. If they were born after nineteen Eighty-six the date of the Chernobyl accident once again, nearly everyone stood these industry defining accidents. Become dry case studies taught in college classes, the next generation of American nuclear power professionals has never experienced the confusion of a nuclear accident as it is happening. And so essentially, we remember and teach the lessons at Three Mile Island insured novel for reviewing these accidents shows common themes of missed opportunity, Hugh and failures failings, and technological overconfidence. No amount of forgetting can change these simple facts. The March nineteen Seventy-nine accident at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania seems almost like something out of a science fiction horror film, cover of time magazine captured the national mood of chaos confusion and fear the emergency red phrase nuclear nightmare, slashed across the dark, the dark black cooling towers of the plant. There was no livestream video as there would be after the Fukushima accident, but the public could imagine the scene inside the reactor just twelve days before the accident, the China syndrome, a feature films starring John Jane Fonda and Michael Douglas as reporters who uncover a major incident in a nuclear plant had been released perhaps the hundreds of journalists gathered outside Harrisburg believed they to woodland such a story. It started on March twenty eighth at around four AM when a water pump stopped working the field pump affected the steam generators large cylinders filled with many tiny metal tubes. It helped turn hot water from the nuclear engine into steam. So that the turbines can generate electricity when the? The flow of water was cut off this massive heat exchange stopped working creating the conditions for a serious accident. The reactor engine was immediately turned off the Salang as the reactor fuel remained hot. Which would for quite some time. It's natural radioactive decay would continue producing enough heat called decay heat to melt through the metal containers. Enclosing the reactor fuel the same problem with later affect Fukushima. And then he goes through the.
