Let me repeat a quote from Djwahl Khul.
Concerning atomic energy he said the following around 1945: a. As the forerunner of that release of energy which will change the mode of human living and inaugurate the new age wherein we shall not have civilizations and their emerging cultures but a world culture and an emerging civilization, thus demonstrating the true synthesis which underlies humanity. The atomic bomb emerged from a first ray Ashram, working in conjunction with a fifth ray group; from the long range point of view, its intent was and is purely beneficent.
Thus was the new era ushered in; thus was the stage set for a better future. This was the intent and the purpose of Those Who compose the Council Chamber of the Lord. It rests with humanity itself to take advantage of the proffered opportunity which this destructive manifestation made possible.
On the physical plane, the great scientific discovery, called colloquially the "splitting of the atom," will be turned eventually to the production of those conditions which will enable mankind to follow the good, the beautiful and the true. This, men will then be able to do, freed from the dread presence of purely materialistic thinking. This is no idle vision or vague dream. Many scientists today (and particularly those who love their fellowmen) are not only visioning the non-destructive aspect of atomic energy but are already engaged in harnessing-for the good of humanity-some of its products and its radioactive properties.
From these writings it is obvious that the Hierarchy was hopeful that humankind would perfect atomic technology, yet despite this it is interesting that many who see themselves as enlightened are totally against this, the safest and most environmentally friendly source of energy in the free world.
Have we turned a friendly source of energy, which is capable of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by over 50% into an illusionary boogieman?
Why is it that in France, a nation of 60 million people, who derive a whopping 75% of their electricity from nuclear power have no fear of nuclear power? In fact, the average Frenchman is happy to see a power plant built in his area. Nuclear power has given France a strong independence from the Middle East on energy and they even export billions of dollars worth of power to surrounding nations.
Is the difference between public opinion on this matter in France and the United States merely the propaganda that is circulated here?
Are we being scared to death by illusion? Are there a lot of half truths and outright lies in circulation that the French have seen beyond?
For instance, we are told by activists that the nuclear waste must be carefully secured for hundreds of thousands of years.
The fact is that most of the radiation from nuclear waste is gone after 60 years and after 1000 years it reaches the level of radiation similar to uranium ore which exists all over the world naturally.
Are alarmists trying to scare us by falsifying the chances of any problem created by an earthquake? For instance, they say that Yucca Mountain is near 34 fault lines, yet the truth is there is a very small chance of any major earthquake there and even if there was one the chances of nuclear pollution problem would be insignificant.
Consider this: 1.8 billion years ago (that's 1,800 times one million) a natural nuclear reactor was created in what is now the republic of Gabon in Africa. Water pockets in a uranium deposit acted as neutron traps and at least four reactor zones went critical at that time producing 20 kW of thermal power over a period of 500,000 years. There were 12,000 pounds of fission products and 4,000 pounds of plutonium that was exposed to the environment.
Even though this massive radioactive material was not buried thousands of feet in rock as we seek to do today, all these thousand of pounds of waste just sat there, undisturbed by the hundreds of passing earthquakes over the entire 1,800,000,000 years.
If natural radioactive waste can lie undisturbed in a random location near the surface for almost 2 billion years then why do we worry so much about storing some waste in Yucca Mountain for 1000 years?
Have we been tricked into believing in a phantom boogieman here?
Yes, it is true there have been some problems in the early stages of atomic energy, but there is no reason to let fear force us into thinking that these problem cannot be solved. In fact, a good deal of the nuclear problems have been solved if we allow the nations of the earth the freedom to use the technology and create the new.
The United States which is generally a leader in technology is falling behind on nuclear energy because of inertia. We have to follow the highest we know before more will come. If we continue development, it will not be long before we will have the technology to completely recycle nuclear waste so this problem of disposal will become non-existent.
Eventually other solutions will be available such as cold fusion, but until that time comes nuclear energy is the best solution available (that the nations can embrace) to our pollution problems.
Currently the death toll for man and animal related to nuclear energy over a 50 year period in the western world is zero. That even beats wind power which has killed thousand of birds, some of them endangered species. In addition wind power creates a massive eyesore much more than the cabin in the woods that is accused of altering the natural scene.
Why are we so afraid of the safest form of energy available to the human race?
Is it possible that this fear has been instilled in us by the Dark Brothers in an attempt to prevent us from entering the desired new age of abundance?
