Breaking News: New age of Activism state of the union address: Dear citizens of the world ALL nuclear power plants are officially deactivated




 NEWAGEOFACTIVISM: Beloved citizens of the world! We finally woke up! I know that you were anxiously waiting to hear the wonderful news that all weapons of mass destruction and nuclear power plants have been officially deactivated. Everyone is living in peace and harmony in this world. We will like to thank you for never giving up the dream of world peace.  Please do not be alarmed by any changes in weather or the occasional hurricane, flood or earthquake. As you know by now we have been incarnating on this planet for thousands of years. Death is an exit to another place. It is not the end!  Since, the nuclear plants have been deactivated our beloved planet will not be blown up into super strings. We can continue to incarnate in this beautiful blue planet enjoy the wonderful scenery while enjoying delicious fruits and vegetables, healthy grains, fresh water and not be destined to wonder in space living in large space stations hoping that another life form feels sorry for us and let's us crash in their pad #CouchSurfing#HomeLess.  As  loving citizens of the world we will like to thank mother nature, animals. plants. and other species that have be patient with our lack of understanding that life, peace and harmony is indeed a state of grace that we and our future generations will live to experience after all. We apologize we were too busy watching T.V, listening to repetitive music, playing with our iphones, buying wigs, heels and having lots of sex and playing with lots of toys.  No matter how dark and hopeless life here on earth became, and how we literally came close to extinction once again in a blink of an eye all that was promised came to pass right before us. The world as we knew it was never the same and we lived happily ever and we continue to party forever more..

On December 20, 1951, at the Experimental Breeder Reactor EBR-I in Arco, Idaho, USA, for the first time electricity - illuminating four light bulbs - was produced by nuclear energy. EBR-I was not designed to produce electricity but to validate the breeder reactor concept.

On June 26, 1954, at Obninsk, Russia, the nuclear power plant APS-1 with a net electrical output of 5 MW was connected to the power grid, the world's first nuclear power plant that generated electricity for commercial use. On August 27, 1956 the first commercial nuclear power plant, Calder Hall 1, Eng-land, with a net electrical output of 50 MW was connected to the national grid.
As of July 2 2012 in 31 countries 435 nuclear power plant units with an installed electric net capacity of about 370 GW are in operation and 62 plants with an installed capacity of 59 GW are in 14 countries under construction.
As of end 2011 the total electricity production since 1951 amounts to 69,760 billion kWh. The cumulative operating experience amounted to 14,897 years by June 2012.
