Food Irradiation Facilities Pose Nuclear Security Threat
Most supermarket chains that previously carried irradiated ground
beef purchased their meat from SureBeam, the newly bankrupt electron-beam
irradiation company. Now, supermarkets are searching for a new
supplier. But unlike the SureBeam technology, significant amounts
of radioactive materials, including cobalt 60 and cesium 137,
are used in the other food irradiation plants. As such, they
raise serious security concerns---they are not adequately protected
against theft, and can be used to make "dirty bombs." Now
is the time to insist that stores keep irradiated foods off their
shelves for good, thereby ending the persistent need for this
dangerous nuclear technology.

THE INTERNATIONAL SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FUND
ISEF is intended to provide an implementation mechanism for financing
new sustainable energy alternatives worldwide, particularly for
the world's 2 billion poor who are living on less than $1 a day
and have inadequate access to energy.
here to view the statute
follow-up the Rio Earth Summit,at the Commission for Sustainable
Development(CSD), the governments of the world will develop a
policy on energy and sustainable development. Already the nuclear
industry is trying to include nuke power as "sustainable" energy.
