Vogtle: at $65 billion and counting, it’s a case study of nuclear power’s staggeringly awful economics

Vogtle Units 3 (left) and 4, July 30, 2015. After 41 months of construction, the project is 39 months behind schedule. Photo by High Flyer, special to Savannah River Site Watch.

Georgia is one state that you would think would be wary of nuclear power economics. The first two reactors at Georgia Power’s Vogtle site, which came online in the late 1980s, were a record 800% over budget.

That is a number that is almost impossible to grasp. Nothing goes 800% over budget–in the real world, projects get cancelled well before reaching that point.

I’m thinking of making about $100,000 worth of improvements to my aging house desperately in need of them. 800% over budget would take that to $800,000. But I could buy a very nice house for that instead, even in the Washington DC area. Of course, I can’t afford an $800,000 house and can’t afford a project that is 800% over budget, either. Most people can’t. Neither can businesses. So if those improvements start to creep up from the budget–in my case if they go more than about 10% over budget–the whole project gets the kibosh.

Sane people do not let projects get 800% over budget. Unless, perhaps, if someone else is putting up the money. And that’s exactly what happened with the first two Vogtle reactors–the overruns were pushed on to ratepayers; Georgia Power had to eat some small portion of them, but basically ratepayers were forced to pick up the tab.

And in a case of history repeating itself as predicted–as farce–that’s exactly what is happening with the two Vogtle reactors under construction now.

When the project was announced, and when the utilities building the project first applied for taxpayer loans to help finance the project, Southern Company (Georgia Power’s parent) said the two reactors would cost about $14 billion and would be online in 2016 and 2017.

That was back around 2008. Vogtle got its taxpayer loan promise in February 2010 and its construction permit in February 2012. Three and a half years later, Vogtle is more than three years behind schedule–39 months behind, in fact.

And the cost of building Vogtle has, not surprisingly, gone up. Way up. Right now, it’s somewhere around $16 billion and rising fast–the over-budget portion caused by the delays alone is $2 million per day. And as you can see from the photo at the top of the page, taken last Thursday, construction still has quite a long way to go.

Georgia Power already has run through half of its federal loan money, paid for by all U.S. taxpayers, not just Georgia ratepayers. Some of the rest of the taxpayer loan (the loans totaled more than $8 billion) was received later by the other partners, so perhaps they haven’t run through their share yet.

In any case, the supposed point of getting the loan, and of charging ratepayers for construction costs as they are incurred (a concept called Construction Work in Progress, barred in most states), and of building the reactors in the first place, …read more

They have a great petition too that needs your signature:

We sign to support the crewmembers of the USS Ronald Reagan and other “first responders” now sick from radiation poisoning after rushing to help Japan’s earthquake/tsunami victims in March, 2011.

Then-Prime Minister Naoto Kan says “the first meltdown occurred 5 hours after the earthquake.” But Tokyo Electric kept secret Fukushima’s dangerous levels of radiation, which irradiated these heroes during their courageous humanitarian service.

We support them and their federal lawsuit and demand that Tepco:

1. Admit responsibility for its negligence at Fukushima;
2. Establish funds sufficient to compensate these sailors and to monitor their health;
3. Acknowledge the right of the US Courts to mediate and oversee these claims.

WEEKLY THREAT ROUNDUP


Jihadi –
USGOV Issues New Worldwide Caution
Aug 1, 2015

Between July 25-29, AlertsUSA issued the following
related Flash SMS messages to subscriber mobile devices:

7/29 – State Dept issues new worldwide caution warning of threat of terrorism / violence against US citizens and interests globally. Urges a high level of vigilance.

7/28 – Key West, FL man (Harlem Suarez, AKA Almlak Benitez) arrested and charged w/ attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction in an alleged backpack bomb plot.

7/25 – Overnight: FBI investigating envelopes containing suspicious powder mailed to 20+ gov agencies across Oregon. 3 law enf officials hospitalized. Monitoring…

What You Need To Know
Twice this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via text messages to their mobile devices regarding matters concerning terrorism. On Tues, subscribers were notified of a the arrest of 23 year old Key West resident, Harlem Suarez, (AKA Almlak Benitez), who is charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction against a person or property within the United States.

http://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/florida-resident-charged-attempting-use-weapon-mass-destruction
According to Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Carlin, Suarez came to the attention of the FBI in April due to Facebook posts that contained extremist rhetoric and promoted the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization. Suarez told a confidential source that he wanted to make a “timer bomb” and went on to purchased components for this device, which was to contain galvanized nails and be concealed in a backpack. Suarez intended to bury the device at a public beach in Key West and then remotely detonate it using a cell phone.

According to Special Agent in Charge George L. Piro of the FBI’s Miami Field Office, “There is no room for failure when it comes to investigating the potential use of a weapon of mass destruction. The FBI and our local, state and federal partners work around the clock to prevent such catastrophic weapons from being used against our citizens. Even so, we ask the public to be vigilant and report suspicious activity to law enforcement.”

GLOBAL THREAT

On Wed of this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified of a new Worldwide Caution issued by the U.S. State Department warning of the continuing threat of terrorist actions and violence against U.S. citizens and interests globally. According to the warning message, recent terrorist attacks, whether by those affiliated with terrorist entities, copycats, or individual perpetrators, serve as a reminder that U.S. citizens need to maintain a high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to increase their security awareness.
http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/alertswarnings/worldwide-caution.html

Since the launch of military action against the Islamic State in 2014, ISIS has called on supporters to attack foreigners wherever they are. Authorities believe there is an increased likelihood of reprisal attacks against U.S., Western and coalition partner interests throughout the world, especially in the Middle East, North Africa, Europe, and Asia.

Extremists may elect to use conventional or non-conventional weapons, and target both official and private interests. Examples of such targets include high-profile sporting events, residential areas, business offices, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, schools, public areas, shopping malls, and other tourist destinations both in the United States and abroad where U.S. citizens gather in large numbers, including during holidays.

U.S. citizens are reminded of the potential for terrorists to attack public transportation systems and other tourist infrastructure. Extremists have targeted and attempted attacks on subway and rail systems, aviation, and maritime services. In the past, these types of attacks have occurred in cities such as New York, Moscow, London, Madrid and Glasgow

Specifically regarding Europe, the State Department reports current information suggesting ISIS, al-Qa’ida, its affiliated organizations, and other terrorist groups continue to plan terrorist attacks against U.S. and Western interests in Europe. Authorities believe the likelihood of terror attacks in Europe will continue as European members of ISIL return from Syria and Iraq. Additionally, there is a continuing threat in Europe from unaffiliated persons planning attacks inspired by major terrorist organizations but conducted on an individual basis.

The warning message goes on to warn, in significant detail, of the threat posed to U.S. citizens, facilities, businesses, and perceived U.S. and Western interests throughout the Middle East, North Africa, Central, South and East Asia, as well as the the Indian Subcontinent, .

U.S. government facilities worldwide remain at a heightened state of alert. These facilities may temporarily close or periodically suspend public services to assess their security posture. In those instances, U.S. embassies and consulates will make every effort to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens. U.S. citizens abroad are urged to monitor the local news and maintain contact with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.

AlertsUSA continues to monitor the overall domestic and international terrorism threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers via SMS messages of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture for American citizens as events warrant.

The Company Man

FBI Warns of Economic Espionage
Aug 1, 2015

What You Need To Know
The FBI has launched a nationwide campaign geared toward educating business and industry leaders about the growing threat – and mounting losses – of economic espionage. As part of the campaign, the FBI has released a short video entitled, The Company Man: Protecting America’s Secrets. The video, created by the FBI in collaboration with the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, is based on an actual case involving the attempted theft of trade secrets from a United States company by a foreign competitor.

Although the exact dollar figure on the costs and losses to U.S. businesses as a result of economic espionage is difficult to accurately report, the losses are substantial. In a 2013 report, total losses are estimated to be in the “hundreds of billions” each year. Those numbers do not take into consideration those companies who either do not detect, do not report, or under-report losses tied to economic espionage.
http://www.ipcommission.org/report/IP_Commission_Report_052213.pdf

The goal of the FBI’s campaign is to not only raise awareness of the threat of economic espionage but to educate those with proprietary information about the warning signs of an insider threat or attempted breach. Each of the FBI’s 56 field offices has an assigned strategic partnership coordinator, whose goal is to liaise with local companies, trade groups, and industry leaders about the threat. In the past year, FBI investigators have provided more than 1,300 briefings to companies and industry leaders discussing the current threat of economic espionage.

(Associated Press/ABC News)

AP, Jul 27, 2015 (emphasis added): Scientist says unexplained mass whale deaths off Alaska island may remain a mystery — Researchers may never solve the recent deaths of 18 endangered whales… 10 fin whales [and] eight humpback whales… scientists speculate the animals might have eaten something toxic… One test came back negative for one toxin that would be present in harmful algal blooms [Kate Wynne, a marine mammal specialist for the University of Alaska Sea Grant Program] said. “That’s my leading hypothesis,” Wynne said of an environmental toxin as a cause… “we never will find out what killed those whales, in my mind.” Other test results also are pending, however. A muscle-tissue sample is being tested for the possibility of radionuclides from the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster… The deaths are an unusual occurrence, Wynne said. She said she’s never heard of anything similar occurring among large baleen whales in the U.S. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also is looking into the deaths of a slightly larger number of whales over a larger area. NOAA is requesting the deaths to be designated nationally as an unusual mortality event… NOAA spokeswoman Julie Speegle said. Along with the dead whales, dead birds including murres and shearwaters were reported… Tests showed the shearwaters had a high parasite count and were starving, Wynne said.


(Alaska Public Media)
KUCB, Jul 27, 2015: Dead Fish, Wildlife In Aleutians… Scientists have been receiving reports of dead and dying mammals, birds and small fish in the Aleutian Islands. They think the killer might be toxic algae… “They’re a suspected cause for some of the mass deaths we’ve been seeing–the 10 fin whales that were spotted dead off of Kodiak Island; I know Adak has seen a lot of dead birds, King Cove, I believe (birds in) False Pass have been washing up. We don’t know the cause of that yet either,” [Melissa Good with University of Alaska Fairbanks] said… “No one that I know of is sure what happened.” This week, Good has been taking water samples around Unalaska and shipping them off to labs for full analysis… She’s also sampled the stomach and flesh of a Steller’s sea lion that washed up dead… Good said people in the Aleutians should be wary of eating clams or mussels… “We just don’t know if they’re going to be toxic or not,” she said.

Univ. of Alaska Fairbanks, July 2015: Pursuing Cause of Death in Gulf of Alaska Whales… Over the next six weeks more large whale mortalities were reported by mariners and pilots. Kate Wynne and Bree Witteveen began gathering NOAA Stranding Network data… a total of 10 fin whale and 8 humpback mortalities have been documented… Both whale species feed in groups on small fish and invertebrates, filtering them with their baleen… Wynne, Witteveen, and other biologists have pursued many possible human-influenced and natural causes, but as of mid-July the cause of death remains unknown… Biotoxins caused by warm water–induced harmful algal blooms are a possibility, although tissue from the sampled fin whale tested for domoic acid came back negative… Scientists have followed up on other possible causes… even radionuclides from the Fukushima reactor…. To pursue the radionuclide possibility Wynne submitted a muscle tissue sample from a dead fin whale for Cesium 137 analysis, with results pending… Wynne and Witteveen complimented the professional network of bird, fish, and mammal biologists in the Gulf of Alaska and the Bristol Bay–Bering Sea area, who have reported unusual events since the mortalities.

So, I went to the sight, not knowing what to expect really. I have to agree with “There is no prayer that will save this Earth!” After sitting here and crying about the animals, I thought about what obewanspeaks had said: “There is no prayer that will save this Earth!” The horror that those whales had gone through, and all these people getting into the senseless slaughter. We are all doomed. How the hell anyone can think that these actions are Ok, I cannot imagine.

People from Sea Shepard were arrested, they could not stand by and do nothing, so they tried, and were arrested. I am sure that there will be a special place in hell for people like those killing these whales. I am ashamed to be human after seeing that. I am disgusted at the human race, and ashamed that these animals have been so senselessy slaughtered. Who do these people think they are? These are not from the same cloth as most of us.

Go see for yourself. I could not even watch the video, the pictures horrified me so:

“On July 23, 2015 at 0115 [CDT], Callaway Plant initiated a shutdown required by Technical Specifications (TS). At 2139 [CDT] on July 22, 2015, TS 3.4.13 Condition A was entered due to unidentified RCS leakage being in excess of the 1 gpm TS limit. The leak was indicated by an increase in containment radiation readings, increasing sump levels, and decreasing levels in the Volume Control tank (VCT).

“A containment entry identified a steam plume; due to personnel safety the exact location of the leak inside the containment building could not be determined.

“At this time radiation levels inside [the] containment are stable and slightly above normal. There have been no releases from the plant above normal levels.

“The [NRC] Senior Resident Inspector was notified.”
