A Closer Look At The Sixth Seal (Revelation 6:12)

A Look at the Tri-State’s Active Fault Line

Monday, March 14, 2011


Bob Hennelly

The Ramapo Fault is the longest fault in the Northeast that occasionally makes local headlines when minor tremors cause rock the Tri-State region.

It begins in Pennsylvania, crosses the Delaware River and continues through Hunterdon, Somerset, Morris, Passaic and Bergen counties before crossing the Hudson River near Indian Point nuclear facility.

In the past, it has generated occasional activity that generated a 2.6 magnitude quake in New Jersey’s Peakpack/Gladstone area and 3.0 magnitude quake in Mendham.

But the New Jersey-New York region is relatively seismically stable according to Dr. Dave Robinson, Professor of Geography at Rutgers. Although it does have activity.

“There is occasional seismic activity in New Jersey,” said Robinson. “There have been a few quakes locally that have been felt and done a little bit of damage over the time since colonial settlement — some chimneys knocked down in Manhattan with a quake back in the 18th century, but nothing of a significant magnitude.”

Robinson said the Ramapo has on occasion registered a measurable quake but has not caused damage: “The Ramapo fault is associated with geological activities back 200 million years ago, but it’s still a little creaky now and again,” he said.

“More recently, in the 1970s and early 1980s, earthquake risk along the Ramapo Fault received attention because of its proximity to Indian Point,” according to the New Jersey Geological Survey website.

Historically, critics of the Indian Point Nuclear facility in Westchester County, New York, did cite its proximity to the Ramapo fault line as a significant risk.

In 1884, according to the New Jersey Geological Survey website, the  Rampao Fault was blamed for a 5.5 quake that toppled chimneys in New York City and New Jersey that was felt from Maine to Virginia.

“Subsequent investigations have shown the 1884 Earthquake epicenter was actually located in Brooklyn, New York, at least 25 miles from the Ramapo Fault,” according to the New Jersey Geological Survey website.

Pakistan Warns of Looming Nuclear War: Revelation 8

Pakistani envoy calls for int’l mediation to resolve Kashmir dispute, as nuclear risk looms

Fri, 28 Oct 2022, 8:50 PM

NEW YORK, Oct 28 (APP): Pointing out that the situation in Indian-occupied Kashmir is “very, very turbulent”, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States, Masood Khan, has warned of a serious threat of escalation of tensions with India, saying that this includes the looming possibility that the two countries could turn to their strategic arsenals should a fight erupt.

“That risk is always there,” Ambassador Masood Khan told Newsweek in an interview, as Kashmiris, Pakistanis and their supporters observed “Kashmir Black Day” on Thursday.

“Pakistan and India are nuclear weapons states and the situation in the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir is very, very turbulent,” he added.

The “Black Day” marks the anniversary of India’s massive invasion and occupation of Jammu and Kashmir on 27 October 1947.

That Indian aggression led to the first Indo-Pakistani war, but since then the two nations have fought three more major conflicts with even more frequent clashes occurring across the Line of Control in the disputed Kashmir region.

While ties between Islamabad and New Delhi have fluctuated over the years, Newsweek said they’ve been particularly strained since Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi dissolved India-administered Jammu and Kashmir’s semi-autonomous status in August of 2019 and ordered a crackdown to stem three-decade of uprising.

Now, Masood Khan said the situation “is deteriorating” as he accused India of orchestrating population transfers to settle Hindus into the majority-Muslim region and of committing an array of human rights violations.

But even as the situation approached a critical point, he called for both bilateral and international mediation to improve ties with New Delhi and avoid further escalation.

“It is the responsibility of the two countries to come to a peace table to resolve outstanding issues,” the ambassador said. “But the risk is that right now there is no diplomatic contact between India and Pakistan at all, no diplomatic conduit. This is perilous.”

“The two sides should be communicating and talking,” he added, “especially because of the precarious situation in the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.”

The latest strife came from Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh’s explosive remarks that India’s aim is to implement the resolution passed in the Indian Parliament on February 22, 1994 and to reclaim remaining parts, such as Gilgit and Baltistan.

Masood Khan also rejected Indian allegations of Pakistan supporting militant group in occupied Kashmir, and portrayed the conflict as one of an unarmed people facing one of the world’s strongest militaries.

He accused India of having “hubris” due to “its great power status” through which India assumes “it would get away with whatever it is doing in Kashmir.”

“But this may not be true at all in the long run, as this might affect the general dynamics of Indian polity as well,” he added. “I mean, if you’re imposing injustice in the occupied territory that pattern can travel to other parts of India. That pattern had manifested in the form of persecution of Muslims and other minorities in India itself.”

With the relationship between Islamabad and New Delhi virtually frozen, Masood Khan argued that the two governments should work to find a venue to outline and resolve their issues once and for all.

“We in Pakistan, the people of Jammu and Kashmir, believe in diplomacy,” the ambassador said. “We think that the right vehicles are the United Nations or we should have peace tables in Srinagar or Muzaffarabad … or Delhi or Islamabad or a third country.”

“But the most suitable places would be New York or Geneva,” he added. “We should have talks to put this issue on the table again, and resolve it for all times to come. It can’t be swept under the carpet. This would be good for both countries and the people of Jammu and Kashmir.”

Such an effort at the U.N., he said, may finally lead to a breakthrough on Kashmir’s status.

“If it is their territory, as they claim, then go to the United Nations hold a referendum and the people of Jammu and Kashmir will decide whose territory it is. And if the people decide in their favour, then they can impose their writ,” Masood Khan said. “But if the people of Jammu and Kashmir make an alternative choice, that they would rather join Pakistan, then India should respect that verdict.”

But the ambassador also acknowledged what he saw as a lack of international focus on the issue, given the multitude of crises plaguing the geopolitical climate.

“The international community’s bandwidth about Jammu and Kashmir has shrunk because of many other factors,” Khan said, “such as the Ukraine war, and also many other international developments.”

“So, nobody’s talking, for instance, in the United Nations or around the United Nations about the resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute or the right to self-determination of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, which was promised to them by the United Nations Security Council,” he added. “We must revive multilateral diplomacy to ascertain the wishes of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.”.

As India and Pakistan marked their opposing narratives over the history of October 27, the Pentagon released its Nuclear Posture Review highlighting the Biden administration’s efforts to deter adversaries with the full extent of the U.S. military’s own arsenal, the Newsweek report pointed out.

“Nuclear weapons are developed for deterrence, you deter your adversaries and enemies from attacking you, you secure yourself,” Masood Khan said. “But when you’re talking about the use of nuclear weapons, you have to demonstrate the utmost responsibility and restraint. Rhetoric about the use of nuclear weapons comes cheap, but its consequences are disastrous, catastrophic.”

In fact, Khan warned, “even if a small weapon, hypothetically speaking, was used in any theater, that would lead to a nuclear winter.”

“Just one part of the world will not be affected; it will be the entire globe,” he said. “And it would have a detrimental impact on climate change, food security or there would be a nuclear winter, but it would impact people’s health adversely.”

Masood Khan stressed the need for stronger ties between Pakistan and the US, who have a long history of partnership, both through the Cold War and the “War on Terror.” And he said it was important to define these relations beyond simply the scope of regional issues such as the rivalry with India.

Nuclear war threat from Babylon the Great and NATO: Daniel 7

Nuclear war threat from U.S./NATO, not Russia

October 27, 2022


This October marked the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis — when the U.S. and the Soviet Union were on the brink of a global nuclear war. The current conflict between the U.S. and Russia, brought on by U.S./NATO use of the war in Ukraine to promote a broader war against Russia, contains many similarities.

NATO kicked off its annual “Steadfast Noon” operation on Oct. 17 to test its ability to wage nuclear conflict; the target of this operation was Russia. U.S. nuclear-capable B-52 bombers now flying to Europe from U.S. bases are practicing dropping nuclear weapons on Russian targets. Other planes from European air bases are practicing deploying NATO nuclear weapons against Russia. These “war games” leave Russia little choice except to respond with its own nuclear exercises.

Just as Cuba was not the danger to global peace 60 years ago, Russia is not today. The threat comes from the Biden administration and its NATO allies.

Yet corporate media pundits, with increasing frequency, repeat President Joe Biden’s statements that imply a nuclear threat comes from Russian President Vladimir Putin. At a fundraiser Oct. 6, Biden claimed Putin “talks about potential use of tactical nuclear weapons or biological or chemical weapons, because his military is . . . significantly underperforming.” Biden ended his remarks stating: “I don’t think there’s any such thing as the ability to easily use a tactical nuclear weapon and not end up with ‘Armageddon.’” (Guardian, Oct. 7)

This statement from a sitting president of the only country in the world that has actually used nuclear, biological and chemical weapons against other countries cannot be taken lightly.

Russia, on the other hand, is not carrying out nuclear war games against the U.S. or any other NATO country. Putin had mentioned nuclear war in his televised address Sept. 21, when he accused the U.S. and NATO of engaging in “nuclear blackmail”; he was referring to statements made by representatives of leading NATO countries about possibly using nuclear weapons against Russia. These statements included those made by the former British Prime Minister Liz Truss. Putin was simply asserting Russia’s right to defend itself, if the country’s territory was threatened.

Both Russia (then part of the Soviet Union) and the U.S. signed the 1968 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, along with France, Britain and China, which also have nuclear arsenals. Israel, a close U.S. ally, has never signed the accord, however, even though it has a nuclear arsenal.

In 2019, then-President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. And Biden has not resurrected this treaty.

Nuclear weapons: ‘just another military tool’

Russia published a doctrine that spells out the “exceptional circumstances” under which they can use nuclear weapons. (from remarks by Scott Ritter, Scheerpost, Oct. 20) Biden, like Trump, follows policies set by his predecessors.

The published U.S. nuclear doctrine includes a policy of nuclear preemption, established by former President George W. Bush. This policy considers nuclear weapons as just another military tool, to be used when needed. In 1969 then-President Richard Nixon openly threatened to use nuclear weapons against Vietnam to end that war.

Nixon used chemical weapons in Vietnam, including the highly carcinogenic Agent Orange. Bush used Depleted Uranium-coated ammunition during his devastating war in Iraq, leaving Fallujah and other areas permanently radioactive with uranium dust. He accidently admitted it was a “wholly unjustified and brutal invasion,” when he said Iraq instead of Ukraine during a speech in May.

And while the U.S. has participated in global conventions to ban chemical warfare, Washington never signed on to the articles prohibiting the use of chemical weapons, which it has used repeatedly in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria.

As a candidate, Biden had promised to reduce U.S. arms sales. But a report by the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft (Qi), released Oct. 21, found that U.S. arms sales have increased under Biden, with weapons even going to countries the U.S. considers “repressive regimes.”

Qi found that roughly two-thirds of current military conflicts involve one or more parties armed by the U.S. Qi researchers reported: “Current U.S. arms policy and practice too often fuel war rather than deterring it. Roughly two-thirds of current conflicts — 34 out of 46 — involve one or more parties armed by the U.S. In some cases, U.S. arms sales to combatants in these wars are modest, while in others they play a major role in fueling and sustaining the conflict.” (TeleSUR English, Oct. 21)

War has become the lifeblood of 21st century capitalism. Weapons manufacturing provides the highest profits, as long as there are conflicts between countries to be exploited. The working class continues to pay the price, as politicians drain funds from domestic spending programs to finance expanding wars.

Pushed to accept cuts in benefits, wages and slashed pension funds, workers are increasingly fighting back with general strikes in Britain, France and elsewhere. Just imagine how powerful these worker actions could be if they included “No more wars!” as one of their demands.

Blinken Say the Obama Deal is Not Quite Dead

U.S. Secretary of State Blinken says Iran nuclear deal is stalled — but he won’t say it’s dead

It’s time for the Biden administration to admit these talks are over, lawyer says

Brennan MacDonald · CBC News · Posted: Oct 29, 2022 4:00 AM ET | Last Updated: 11 hours ago



U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken declined this week to state that nuclear talks with Iran are dead — despite a popular uprising challenging the authoritarian regime and evidence that Tehran is supplying Russia with so-called ‘kamikaze’ drones to strike civilian and infrastructure targets in Ukraine.

“There’s no forward movement,” Blinken said in an exclusive interview this week with CBC News Network’s Power & Politics. “The Iranians continue to try to inject extraneous, unrelated issues into the conversation.” 

“With respect, is it dead forever?” host Vassy Kapelos asked Blinken. “The regime that you would be essentially personally legitimizing by negotiating with is killing people who are protesting against it. Is that a tenable position for your government?”

Blinken said that when the parties negotiated the original Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) — the deal meant to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon — Tehran was “engaged in a variety of profoundly objectionable actions.”

“Support for terrorism, destabilizing activities in the Middle East, of course its own abuse of human rights,” said Blinken. 

“What we said at the time in negotiating the agreement was Iran is taking all of these actions — an Iran with a nuclear weapon is likely to be even worse because it will believe it can act with even greater impunity when it comes to all of the activities it’s engaged in in the region and beyond that we object to.”

Exclusive: U.S. Secretary of State on the threats posed by Russia and Iran

2 days ago

Duration12:51″What I’m hearing – my consultations with Congress, Republicans and Democrats alike – is the support is strong,” said U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, expressing doubt that a Republican-controlled Congress would jeopardize U.S. support of Ukraine moving forward.

Signed in 2015 by Iran, the U.S. and several other world players, the JCPOA was intended to curb Iran’s nuclear programs in exchange for sanctions relief.http://andrewtheprophet.com

In one of his signature foreign policy moves, President Donald Trump pulled the U.S. from the agreement in 2018 and restored some of the sanctions that had been lifted when the deal was struck.

During the 2020 presidential campaign, Joe Biden described Trump’s foreign policy on Iran as a “dangerous failure” and vowed to rejoin the nuclear agreement if Iran returned to strict compliance with the terms of the deal.

Negotiations appeared to hit a wall in August when the U.S. State Department said Iran was making “unacceptable demands.”

Time for Washington to say ‘these talks are dead’: activist

Lawyer and human rights activist Kaveh Shahrooz said the Biden administration’s current position is untenable, given the widespread protests in Iran and the fact that Tehran is supplying weapons to Russia.

“The Iranian people have made very clear that this regime does not represent them. It does not represent their interests. And I think it’s very clear to any observer that Iran’s regime is not a party that can be trusted,” said Shahrooz. “It’s time for the Biden administration and Secretary Blinken to say these talks are dead.”

Shahrooz said the current context demands that Iran be “more isolated diplomatically” and that engaging in further talks would send a signal that the regime in Tehran is a “legitimate and credible partner to the West.”

Blinken insisted this week that engaging in nuclear negotiations with Iran is not about legitimizing the regime, but rather about preventing a bad actor from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

Shahrooz said that argument may have convinced some people a month ago, but now “we’re in a revolutionary moment.”

Instead, Shahrooz said, the Biden administration and the international community should make it costly for anyone to cooperate with Tehran in order to “empower Iran’s revolutionaries themselves to overthrow this regime.”

A nuclear-armed Iran would be a disaster: ex-diplomat

Retired career diplomat Dennis Horak served as Canada’s head of mission to Iran from 2009 until a few weeks before the Harper government suspended diplomatic relations in 2012. He said it’s important to let the current political situation play out in Iran — but eventually, the nuclear talks should resume.

“As imperfect as the agreement was, it did put some controls on Iran’s nuclear program and I think it’s important that those controls be reinstated at some point,” said Horak. “Iran is a difficult player in the region and a nuclear-armed Iran would be a disaster.”

But Horak cautioned against relaunching negotiations as a popular uprising is still sweeping across Iran.

“I think the Iranian regime might view that as an opportunity to change the channel,” said Horak. “I don’t think the West should allow itself to be used in that sort of a public relations exercise.”

The Antichrist Refuses to Join the New Government

Iraq’s Sadr movement refuses to join next government

  • 15 OCT 2022

The announcement creates more headache for prime minister-designate Sudani as he tries to resolve a year-long political deadlock.

Iraqi Shia politician Muqtada al Sadr’s movement has announced its refusal to join a new government being formed by prime minister-designate Mohammad Shia al Sudani.

The announcement came on Saturday two days after lawmakers elected Abdul Latif Rashid as Iraq’s new president, and he swiftly named Sudani as prime minister in a bid to end a year of political gridlock since October 2021 elections.

“We stress our firm and clear refusal for any of our affiliates to participate… in this government formation,” Mohammed Saleh al Iraqi, a close associate of Sadr, said in a statement posted on Twitter.

The statement charged that the upcoming government has a “clear subordination to militias” and would “not meet the (Iraqi) people’s aspirations”.

He said the Sadrist movement refused to take part in any government led by Sudani “or any other candidate from among the old faces or those affiliated with the corrupt”.

“Anyone who joins their ministries does not represent us… rather, we disavow them,” Iraqi said.

A 30-day deadline

The 52-year-old former minister Sudani has the backing of Iran-aligned Coordination Framework, which controls 138 out of 329 seats in the Iraqi legislature.

In June, Sadr had ordered the 73 lawmakers in his bloc to resign, leaving parliament in the hands of the Framework, which includes representatives of the former paramilitary Hashd al Shaabi.

Iraqi lawmakers on Thursday elected former minister Abdul Latif Rashid as the country’s next president, defying threats of further violence following a barrage of rocket attacks earlier in the day. 

The new president swiftly named Sudani as prime minister-designate, tasking him with reconciling feuding Shia factions and forming a government a whole year after Iraq last went to the polls.

When Sudani was first proposed in July, the move sparked mass protests by Sadr’s followers, who breached the Green Zone and stormed parliament.

He now has 30 days to form a new government capable of commanding a majority in parliament.

Hamas, Islamic Jihad vow Palestinian resistance will continue until Israel defeated

Friday, 28 October 2022 11:06 AM  [ Last Update: Friday, 28 October 2022 11:06 AM ]

The Gaza-based Hamas and Islamic Jihad resistance movements have slammed the fatal Israeli shooting of two Palestinian men at a military checkpoint south of Nablus, vowing that the resistance of the Palestinian nation will continue until the Israeli regime is defeated and an independent Palestinian state is created.

Hamas on Friday called on all Palestinian security services and resistance fighters to follow the path of the fallen victims, identified as 47-year-old Imad Abu Rasheed and Ramzi Sami Zabara, 35, in defense of Palestinian people and to aim their rifles at Israeli troops, who keep killing Palestinians in cold blood and do not shy away from desecrating sacred places and shrines.

The movement added that the northern West Bank city of Nablus, the Askar refugee camp on the eastern outskirts of Nablus, and elsewhere across the West Bank serve as fields of confrontation with Israeli soldiers.

The Palestinian people are undertaking a campaign of resistance that will never subside unless the occupying regime is defeated and an independent Palestinian state with East al-Quds as its capital is established, Hamas said.

Israeli forces have killed two Palestinians in the West Bank in a further escalation of their aggression in the occupied territories.

The Islamic Jihad movement also said that Palestinian people will unleash their fury against the occupying Tel Aviv regime and will keep up resistance against Israeli soldiers and settlers.

It pointed out that Israel is going to great lengths in order to maintain its so-called security apparatus, which is going down in the face of valiant resistance fighters carrying out operations across the West Bank.

The Palestinian Health Ministry announced just before 2 a.m. local time on Friday (2300 GMT Thursday) that Abu Rasheed was killed due to bullets that hit his stomach, chest and head.

Palestinian officials later reported that Zabara succumbed to his wounds from a bullet to the heart on Friday morning.

Another man, whose identity was not immediately known, was also wounded. He was reported to be in a stable condition after undergoing surgery at Rafidia Surgical Hospital in Nablus.

Both Zabara and Abu Rasheed worked for the Palestinian Authority’s Civil Defense and lived in the Askar refugee camp.

Israeli forces have also recently been conducting overnight raids and killings in the northern occupied West Bank, mainly in the cities of Jenin and Nablus, where new groups of Palestinian resistance fighters have been formed.

Israel has killed at least 183 Palestinians since the start of 2022 in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, including 26 since the start of October, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said in a new report yesterday.

Local and international rights groups have condemned Israel’s excessive use of force and “shoot-to-kill policy” against Palestinians.

Debunking myths on the peaceful uses of nuclear energy: Revelation 8

October 27, 2022

It is often thought that having nuclear reactors for energy production is unreliable, unsafe, and requires excessive manpower. Where did these ideas come from? have we ever considered the operational aspects of nuclear power? And how is it produced?

The answers to these questions are not commonly known to the general population, and therefore it is necessary to try to debunk such myths about nuclear reactors so that we may achieve their true potential for the greater good. Before diving into the nitty gritty of nuclear energy’s true potential, it is essential to understand the basic mechanism of nuclear reactions. It is quite understandable that it may not be easy for common people to make great sense of the process, but it is pertinent to identify and know the process.

First, uranium called “yellowcake,” a substance most important for nuclear energy, is mined from the region of Dera Ghazi Khan in Pakistan. It is also essential to know that the amount of uranium-235 in yellowcake consists of only 0.7 percent. The natural uranium found is mainly not enriched. The uranium-235 used in operating nuclear power plants is enriched due to the type of nuclear power plants we have in Pakistan. The plants are light water reactors for which enriched uranium is required. The process of enriching uranium is done through a centrifugal process. The centrifugal process is carried out in a gaseous form that separates uranium-235 from the ore. The amount of enriched uranium-235 required in nuclear power plants for energy production is 4-5 percent. Furthermore, the enriched uranium is further fused with neutrons when it is put in the core of the nuclear reactor. When coming into contact with uranium-235, neutrons start a chain reaction of multiplication called the fission process. This fission process is further a source of energy production, ultimately leading to the production of clean electricity.

Second, having gone through these processes, the nuclear energy produced in Pakistan is around 3530 megawatts, with a total installed capacity of six nuclear power plants. Two power plants are in Karachi called KANUPP II and III, and the other four plants are in Chashma called C1, C2, C3, and C4. Given the current situation of nuclear power plants in Pakistan, it is also vital to understand the inception of nuclear power production. The first ever nuclear reactor installed in Pakistan was the PARR-I reactor, which was installed in Islamabad in 1965 by America for research purposes. This initiative led to the establishment of Pakistan’s first nuclear power plant, KANUPP I, in Karachi. The KANUPP I was dismantled a few years back after completing its life cycle.

Third, the pros of nuclear energy are comparatively more than their cons. Although the construction of a nuclear power plant can be costly, the safety and security of nuclear power plants can necessitate stringent safeguards. But the availability of nuclear fuel and the dumping process appear to be minor in comparison to the benefits. Nuclear power plants, once fully operational with advanced technology and materials, will not likely require any technical or operational maintenance for almost 2-3 years. It will keep on producing clean and cheap energy, making it a reliable energy source with zero carbon emissions. The energy produced is high in density, meaning that the energy released in the process of a nuclear fission reaction is ten million times more energy released than the amount of energy released in the process of burning fossil fuels.

Considering the numerous benefits of nuclear energy irrespective of the small number of cons. It is pertinent to invest in nuclear energy for better and cleaner energy. Nuclear energy is not only an answer to cheap energy and environmental issues, mainly global warming, but also a key prospect for solving extensive social issues. Pakistan needs to stay focused on its goal for the year 2050 to provide 40,000 MW of energy. Nuclear energy is the way forward for the already dire situation of the energy crisis in Pakistan. This 2050 plan will not only address the energy deficit, but it will also serve as a means of economic sustainability.

Nuclear energy, with its pros and cons, also has multiple peaceful applications. Nuclear energy is used in multiple areas related to health, agriculture, industry, food preservation, water mining, and security. Not diving into detail about every application of nuclear energy, health is one key area where nuclear energy is put to the fullest use.

Under the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC), 19 cancer-related hospitals are operating in Pakistan. According to the PAEC annual report of 2018–2019, some 38, 457, and 40,797 cancer patients were registered in different cancer hospitals all around Pakistan, respectively. The cancer patients were mainly suffering from breast cancer, amounting to 22.9 percent, and oral cavity cancer, amounting to 9.7 percent. The one thought-provoking thing about these cancer hospitals, apart from treating the cases, is that they do not reject any case of cancer, be it in the final stage.

Considering the numerous benefits of nuclear energy irrespective of the small number of cons. It is pertinent to invest in nuclear energy for better and cleaner energy. Nuclear energy is not only an answer to cheap energy and environmental issues, mainly global warming, but also a key prospect for solving extensive social issues. Pakistan needs to stay focused on its goal for the year 2050 to provide 40,000 MW of energy. Nuclear energy is the way forward for the already dire situation of the energy crisis in Pakistan. This 2050 plan will not only address the energy deficit, but it will also serve as a means of economic sustainability.
