This Blog is dedicated to “telling it like it is” with regard to energy in its many forms, as well as their related implications and problems, on a global scale. We are committed to a simple, uncompromising, informative, compact, and truthful journalistic style. 

 We began in San Antonio, Texas on Oct 2009 when our local electrical utility Co. called “City Public Service(CPS)” went all out to support the expansion of a twin Nuke located in Bay City Texas; known as the South Texas Project (STP).  STP had served San Antonio, Texas for nearly 20 years, and CPS Energy held a 40% ownership to the twin Nukes  The STP controlling interest was held by NRG/NINA of New Jersey.  Unfortunately, CPS, NRG/NINA, and even high placed City Hall persons, colluded in very devious ways to ensure CPS’ participation in the $14B? project to add two(2) more reactors at the same low-lying coastal plain.  Shades of Fukushima UH!.  To the Chagrin of San Antonio’s citizens, collusions, and outright scandalous lies were uncovered, and the STP Expansion project was stopped, and defeated.  We like to think our efforts were useful in preventing what would surely have been a monumental mistake.  That experience tought us  that Big money has a highly corruptive influence even among (formerly)“good” people.  By the way, that failed initiative cost the San Antono, TX ratepayers about $375 Mn;  That, was the cost of “Biting the Bullet”., in a WWW forum which now enjoys views in more than 65 countries, and is widely praised for its excellent writing style, informative content, and frank, unambiguous information, that traditional media (both news and most TV news ) intentionally avoids or fails to cover. One of our goals is to allow the worldwide communities regarding how some countries differ, and how we are all alike in our desire for a modicum of modernity that includes clean air water, and energy

The decision to create this information Blog was based in the interest of increasing our global visibility, and it has succeeded beyond expectations.  Currently many countries need to “hear it like it is” regarding “nuclear aspirations “.  The Fukushima Dai N0.1 multiple meltdowns tragedy has demonstrated the need to get past the lies, misinformation, and disinformation prevalent in the Nuclear Generating country’s media.  We believe that media is controlled to advocate (propagandize, if you will) for nuclear, energy, and ignore all news detrimental to their huge financial interests;

We believe that reports abound, but news analysis and comment does not. There is a job to do.  It is in that function, that our many years in Business, Government, and Industry, gives an edge when it comes to “corporate arrangements”, their lexicon and natural tendencies.  That is not just what they do, but why. That is what we hope to share with you.

Financial assistance to this site will not be solicited or accepted to ensure “Independent Activist” status; so there will no disturbing pop-ups, or advertisements of any kind.  We will continue to post for the foreseeable future on this Blog for as long as possible.  We trust you will find “Water” Format sufficiently intuitive and informative.  If you use it a few times you will soon get the hang of it.
