Galen Winsor is a nuclear physicist of renown who worked at, and
helped design, nuclear power plants in Hanford, WA; Oak Ridge, TN;
Morris, IL, San Jose, CA; Wimington, NJ. Among his positions of
expertise he was in charge of measuring and controlling the nuclear
fuel inventory and storage.
Galen Winsor has traveled and lectured all over America, spoken on
national talk radio, and made several videos exposing the
misunderstood issues of nuclear radiation. He shows that fear of
radiation has been exaggerated to scare people … so a few powerful
people can maintain total control of the world’s most valuable power
resource. Filmed by Ben Williams in 1986.
In the video, you can watch Galen lick a pile of highly radioactive
uranium off the palm of his hand and ignite a chunk of plutonium into
a shower of flaming dust. The guy also drank reactor cooling pool
water for fun and liked to go swimming in the pool to relax. He also
spiked the basement flooring of his own home with enough radioactive
material to send any Geiger counter reading off the scale to disprove
the fear mongering surrounding radon at the time.
Galen surmises the regulations and fear mongering that surround
radioactive materials are in place to prevent the widespread adoption
of nuclear power in local small scale neighborhood/home based
reactors. Galen also points out that hot nuclear “waste” can be
effectively turned into a safe power source through thermionic
conversion, which is how the U.S. submarine navigation network was
powered. The heat it gives off can also be used to safely heat homes.
He points out that nuclear “waste” is worth roughly $10 million (in
1986 dollars) a ton if it were to be reprocessed to collect its useful
isotopes, so all of this talk about trying to bury it is a sham. He
says the power companies are holding all the waste with the intent of
playing the plutonium futures market. The “waste” could be stored
above ground in already constructed buildings meeting all the
regulatory requirements without the need to have these outrageous
basalt mines dug into mountains. The only reason he can think of for
these underground vaults is to hide bodies/evidence that the state
doesn’t want uncovered.
At its core, he says federal controls over nuclear material is about
maintaining power and control over the masses through the denial of
self-sufficient power sources. Obviously if one had a personal sized
power source that was cheap and efficient, they wouldn’t need to be
connected to the “grid” for anything. The power grid is the control
grid our rulers use to keep us under their thumbs.
He also says Three Mile Island was an intentionally created disaster,
and that a core meltdown could not melt its way deep into the Earth.
"Yeah I've met him.
I put him in the Bob Lazar school of stunt showmanship.
Idiots can do all those things.
They won't die immediately from them.
He rambles way too much and is about as welcome these days as a
copperhead at a pik-nik . The nuclear industry used him as a stunt
dummy to try to dispell the dangers in nuclear power.
To no avail. The folks they were trying to reach had few brains
anyway. Besides any moron could break free of rational thought in the
sixties. It's no big mystery but you can swim in a triga reactor pool
provided you don't dive. They run at low power usually..about 1 watt
to preserve the fuel rods. People have fallen in and survived with
little damage. If you look at any training reactor site you will find
rescue rings all over. Most triga reactor have pools that are in the
15 foot range at 1 watt the neutron range is low say 3 ft. .. four
Spent rods about the same risk!
Most intact spent fuel rods emit mostly beta particles with some gamma
rays. Betas can be effectively be stopped by two feet or less of
water. The water is distilled in rod storage pools and beta and gamma
irradiation does not screw up the water one little bit! The only thing
that would make that water unpotable is if the fuel rod had cracked
releasing raw fissile products into the water.
Most waste pools are 20 feet deep... so swimming on the surface would
be a fairly safe stunt. Even with the glowing stuff below.
Gotta keep the kids safe ya know!
Low quantities of urainium oxide is pretty harmless if unirradiated.
You can't dissolve uranium oxide in stomach acid...takes fuming red
nitric to do the trick. In a few days you have radiactive poo.
Just as dangerous as eating dirt in Arizona or Colorado.
It's the lungs not the gut where the highest risk occurs.
The lungs can not expell tiny particulates under a micron. ...."
