4 Nuclear Reactors In US Shutdown In Last Few Days As Power Grids Worldwide Expected To Fail

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

August 15, 2012

With the recent power grid failure in India and other problems such as the Fukushima Diachi disaster, one can never be too sure when the kickoff to martial law might be.

However, what I do know is that a source of mine in the nuclear power industry was told late last year (by officials) to prepare for just that, as power grids worldwide are expected to fail in 2012 or 2013 according to some reports.Continued below.

An excerpt from the Baltimore Sun reads;

The sun goes through an 11-year cycle during which sunspots and flares peak and decline. The next peak is expected in 2013, and the radiation that may shower Earth could wreak havoc on satellite communications, radio waves and the electricity grid. (It also could create spectacular aurora borealis — the Northern Lights).

A variety of applications of GPS technology — such as managing cellular telephone signals and tracking planes in the air — could be affected, said Anthony Russo, director of the National Coordination Office for Space-Based Positioning, Navigation, and Timing.

In the worst case, solar flares could disrupt all the electronic systems we’ve come to rely on in daily life. A large burst of radiation from the sun, for example, could knock out power transmission systems for months, grid experts warn.

Two out of three nuclear power plants in Minnesota have been shut down for unscheduled maintenance.

An excerpt from the Star Tribune reads;

Xcel Energy said Tuesday it has shut down two of Minnesota’s three nuclear reactors for what it called minor repairs.

Neither plant released any radiation or posed any danger to citizens, the company said. The Monticello nuclear plant’s single generating unit, which had been operating at 10 percent capacity since last weekend, was shut down because of a leaking pipe inside the plant’s concrete containment structure, the company said.

One of the two nuclear generators at the Prairie Island plant was shut down because its emergency diesel generators suffered exhaust leaks.

      This is a non-story! Reactors always go off-line for something!

        Another one of those “souces” that always seem to have bad news. the little devils!

      I would guess they are shutting them down because of the Louisiana Sinkhole problem and the realization the Salt Caverns holding all the nuclear waste and petro-chemical reserves are more frail than they thought. We are paying a hell of a price economically and environmentally for allowing our rich corporate friends to globalize us. Bill Clinton was no democrat, NAFTA let the wealthiest most dangerous corporate interests take jobs offshore and H1B’s in here. They would not and have not protected our borders. The oil and mining companies don’t have geographic boundaries or regulation and haven’t for 30 years. Globally it’s just a bunch of rich guys greasing corrupt permit issuers. Nobody stopped them. George Bush then sent our military into Afghanistan and Iraq essentially to put guns on the ground to steal mineral wealth and created a holocaust in it’s own right. The people that have faith and believe in God should not be surprised at all when the dogs day comes. How long did we think it was going to be before this caught up with us? Did we think we could act like Germany forever and never have the world or God himself pay us back for looting, stealing, raping the earth and killing people? Our leaders and their friends have taken and bullied and taken and raped, pillaged and burned. They live in white castles while our children are wanting. They bought the media and have been lying to us for 30 years and we did nothing to stop them. It is “they” that deserve to pay for these sins but it will be “us” that pays if we dont get off our butts and do something very quickly. The world is not going to forgive us for our complicity allowing our government to murder or starve their children. The world believes we deserve whatever happens to us and the world may get their wish. Our leaders and corporate gods are like spoiled children that need an ass whooping. The question is if we are going to get off the couch and do it.

        To start with you could stand up and be counted by giving yourself a name rather than hiding behind the crowd of nobodies. The name anonymous holds no power. No matter how hard you try to get your point across it is lost because at least half of the people posting under anon are complete wankers !
        In my opinion anyone who will not stand by what they say with a recognisable name is a coward ! No Balls ! Faceless people in the crowd hurling comments, whether good or bad, does not do it for me.

        • anonymoustache

          being a dog named norry gives you instant credibility?
          Now,that’s whacked….

    • Norry

      This story is absolute fear mongering and BS. to the nth degree. That these doom and gloom stories get posted all the time makes you wonder about the sincerity or lack of discernment in recognising stupidity, of the person or persons posting such rubbish !
      It is getting rediculous !

        5 down, just 50 more to go EAST OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER!

        What is the target of Russian nuke rockets if they REALLY want to eradicate all of you rather naive amerikan vermin???


        WHAT HAPPENS IF A VERY LARGE CME (from the sun – an “act of god”, so to speak) strikes your electrical grid ALL HOOKED TO YOUR NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS!

        BA BOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        No fear, JUST FACT!

    • Ruk9p

      Here it comes padies & gentlemen. They are.turning off the power.

    • killuminati420

      First of all they have no plans to shut down the power grid because of the sun,They admit they know the danger and are doing nothing to prepare.Although America is going to have problems with its power grids the entire country is falling maybe thats the whole plan the government want’s to declare war on the people so they can rebuild roads and schools :P after they murder a bunch of children of course

    • Pix

      LOL no power stations are failing in my country. The world does not end at USA boarders.

      • Betsy

        Chances are your country is reliant whether directly or indirectly on the well-being of the US so when the ship sink here the debilitating effects will be worldwide. This was foretold to be the downfall of having a global economy, a major player crash and burn all the players suffer the same fate.
