Jaczko, Harry Reed's boy, has stirred up a shyt storm. He blew it big time with his Fukushima descriptions but that is old news. Whatever he has done this time is pretty ugly. Looks like shyt is running up hill from the bottom to the top with the NRC. Twitter accounts may or may not be reliable but this one is going to get much uglier.

What's Obama going to not do this time?

But I want the low down. What's the blunder this time? Why are his people (not one of them) backing him?

Can't they just get this guy out? Can't Obama wake up and smell the coffee?

ar from being “fair and objective” in dealing with Yucca Mountain, in 2010 he issued a directive stopping an NRC staff evaluation of the project, precisely because the study would have shown that the project was sound. He then used the resulting lack of safety data as an excuse to order work on the Yucca Mountain project to be stopped altogether. Breaking his promise to consult other members of the commission on Yucca Mountain matters, according to a report made public by NRC inspector general Hubert Bell last week, Jaczko “strategically withheld” information from the other commissioners and “was not forthcoming” about his intention to use his arbitrary directive to stop the project.

On March 17, 2011, as Japan was reeling from the double impact of a massive earthquake followed by a tsunami, Jaczko gave testimony to Congress in which he wildly exaggerated the danger of radiation releases from the stricken Fukushima nuclear-power complex. Going farther, he issued an advisory to all Americans to stay 50 miles away from the disaster zone. Acting on this advisory, the U.S. military ordered forces to stay away from the area, leaving thousands of Japanese trapped in the rubble or shipwrecked at sea to die.

Four Nuclear Regulatory commissioners from both parties say they have "grave concerns" about the panel's chairman, charging that the actions of Gregory Jaczko are "causing serious damage" to the commission and creating a "chilled work environment at the NRC."

The two-page letter, signed by four of Jaczko's colleagues on the five-member panel, stops short of calling for the chairman to resign. But it says he "intimidated and bullied" senior career staff, ordered staff to withhold information and ignored the will of the panel's majority. The letter was signed by Democrats William Magwood and George Apostolakis, as well as Republicans Kristine Svinicki and William Ostendorff.

Well we all know this administration was going to put science ahead of politics..

so three years in to Obama's term would be a good point to start actually doing that wouldn't it? .. :?

Steve he can say whatever he wants to say about his support for power. The fact of the matter is having Jaczko in charge of the NRC is like putting Kevorkian in charge of an Emergency Room.

the Obama administration doesn't want cheap energy.. in fact by their actions it looks like they don't want any form of reliable energy.. (unless it is in the form of a payoff to a large campaign donor)..


every action they have taken has been a large step backward for a modern civilized society..

so it doesn't surprise me that they continue to support an anti nuclear power agenda over sound proven science.
