Stephen Colbert Takes Aim At Donald Trump’s Nuclear Arsenal Ambitions

Stephen Colbert picked apart President Donald Trump’s desire to ramp up America’s nuclear arsenal on Friday.

The “Late Show” host first poked fun at the way in which the commander in chief said Thursday that he wanted to make the U.S. the “top of the pack” when it came to nukes.

“Not sure if he means top dog or leader of the pack,” quipped Colbert, “but either way, he is not the sharpest knife on the Christmas tree.”

Taking on a more serious tone, Colbert called a new proliferation of nuclear weapons a “terrifying prospect” — coming as it did following years of “careful” decommissioning.

“It’s like the Cold War all over again,” the host said. “But this time everyone’s on Russia’s side.”

Fukushima: The Death Knell for Nuclear Energy?: The Japanese Tsunami 2011

Fukushima: The Death Knell for Nuclear Energy?: The Japanese Tsunami 2011

Nuclear energy was harnessed for civil and military use less than 60 years ago. Ever since it has been a source great debate. While the nuclear industry has provided cheap energy to many countries in the world it has also been the source of environmental disasters and untold damage to the planet for generations to come. All of this came to a head with the disaster at the Fukushima Nuclear Plant in March 2011 in the wake of the Japanese Tsunami. This event and the response to it have led to a reassessment of the Nuclear programmes in most of the worlds nuclear powers. In this book Fr Sean McDonagh looks at the responses and reactions to the Fukushima disaster, the implications it has had for the worlds nuclear powers, the reaction of the Church to the nuclear industry, and the implications for the growing pro-nuclear lobby in Ireland. ‘In this clear, factual and concise book Sean McDonagh provides us with the information we need to make a moral judgment about nuclear power post-Fukushima. This is an a comprehensive but accessible account of exactly how the nuclear industry operates and of the disastrous long-term implications for future generations in dealing with nuclear our waste.’ Dr Paul Collins, This book is a timely examination of the case for nuclear power in the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster. It is particularly strong in placing the scientific arguments in the context of how regulation of the industry has been weak and dominated by political self-interest. The argument throughout is informed by a thorough knowledge of experiences throughout the world as well as by ethical considerations. Dr Peadar Kirby
