'The graveyard of the Earth': inside City 40, Russia's deadly nuclear secret - The Guardian
” ( From the dystopian novel We, by Yevgeny Zamyatin, 1924). Deep in the vast forests of Russia’s Ural mountains lies the forbidden city of Ozersk. Codenamed City 40, Ozersk was the birthplace of the Soviet nuclear weapons programme after the second world war. For decades, this city of 100,000 people did not appear on any maps, and its inhabitants’ identities were erased from the Soviet census. Today, with its beautiful lakes, perfumed flowers and picturesque tree-lined streets, Ozersk resembles a suburban 1950s American town – like one of those too-perfect places depicted in The Twilight Zone. On a typical day, young mothers push newborns in prams and children play in the street. In the nearby forest, families swim in the lake as older folk rest on park benches, enjoying a lazy afternoon watching passersby. Only the Geiger counters used to check the produce before it is purchased point to the dark secret that haunts this tranquil urban scene. The city’s residents know the truth, however: that their water is contaminated, their mushrooms and berries are poisoned, and their children may be sick. Ozersk and the surrounding region is one of the most contaminated places on the planet, referred to by some as the “graveyard of the Earth”. Yet the majority of residents do not want to leave. They believe they are Russia’s “chosen ones”, and even take pride in being citizens of a closed city. This is where they were born, got married, and raised their families. It is where they buried their parents, and some of their sons and daughters too. ‘Saviours of the world’ In 1946, the Soviets began construction of City 40 in total secrecy, around the huge Mayak nuclear plant on the shores of Lake Irtyash. It would house the workers and scientists transported from across the country to lead the Soviet Union’s nuclear weapons programme, and build an atomic bomb. For the first eight years, residents were forbidden from leaving the city, writing letters or making any contact with the outside world – including members of their own family. City 40’s inhabitants were told they were “the nuclear shield and saviours of the world”, and that everyone on the outside was an enemy. While the majority of the Soviet population were suffering from famine and living in abject poverty, the authorities created a paradise for these residents, providing them with lives of privilege and some luxury. They were offered private apartments, plenty of food – including exotic delicacies such as bananas, condensed milk and caviar – good schools and healthcare, a plethora of entertainment and cultural activities, all in a lakeside forest setting... In exchange, the residents were ordered to maintain secrets about their lives and work. It is a deal they still adhere to today, in a city where almost all of Russia’s reserve fissile material is stored. Many residents describe it as a town of “intellectuals”, where they are used to getting “the best of everything for free”.www.theguardian.com
Mass., NH troopers charged in beating video case - The Boston Globe
Two state troopers from Massachusetts and New Hampshire were arrested Tuesday after being seen on TV news video allegedly beating a suspect who had surrendered following a high-speed chase in Nashua in May, amid heightened scrutiny nationwide of... New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph A. Foster’s office said Massachusetts Trooper Joseph Flynn, 32, and Andrew Monaco, 31, his counterpart from the Granite State, were booked on assault charges stemming from the violent capture of Richard Simone... Simone, of Worcester, had been wanted on assault and larceny charges when he led authorities on a chase that began in Central Massachusetts and ended in Nashua. Troopers struck him repeatedly after he exited his vehicle and knelt on the ground, in an incident that was captured on camera by news helicopters and watched by viewers across the nation. Flynn and Monaco, who are both on leave from their jobs, posted cash bail and are slated to be arraigned in the Ninth Circuit Court District Division in Nashua on Sept. Monaco’s lawyer declined to comment, and Flynn’s attorney did not respond to inquiries. Hinkle said the incident must be treated with “utmost seriousness’’ but “we must also continue to do so without disparaging all of the hard-working members of law enforcement who put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe. David Procopio, a spokesman for the Massachusetts State Police, said in an e-mail that Flynn is a four-year veteran of the agency who remains suspended with pay. Procopio said there had been no similar excessive force cases against Massachusetts state troopers in the last several years. Jane Young, a senior assistant attorney general in New Hampshire, did not cite any previous excessive force charges against troopers in her state, but noted there have been such incidents involving municipal police officers. Asked if Simone or any law enforcement officers who took part in the chase will testify if the case goes to trial, Young said she could not discuss specifics, adding that “any witness [with] firsthand knowledge” of a case is normally called to the... Simone remains in custody in Massachusetts after pleading not guilty to assault charges stemming from an incident in Millbury days before the chase, in which he allegedly swerved his vehicle at an officer. His lawyer, Joseph F. Comenzo, declined to comment on the arrests of Flynn and Monaco. Several police officers appeared to be involved in the chase, which began in Holden, Mass. Police in Holden tried to pull Simone over, but he failed to stop, authorities said, sparking the pursuit that ended about 50 miles away in Nashua. In the TV news video on May 11, Simone is seen bumping his pickup truck into a police cruiser during the pursuit before finally stopping on a residential street. He is later seen slowly getting out of the truck, as officers close in with guns drawn. Asked if his client plans to file a lawsuit, Comenzo said, “at this point he’s focusing on the criminal matter” that he faces in Massachusetts. Flynn’s union declined to comment through a spokesman, and the New Hampshire union that represents Monaco could not be reached on Tuesday.www.bostonglobe.com
VT slows down on renewable energy incentives - BurlingtonFreePress.com
MONTPELIER - Sunny skies for the nation’s solar power industry may be turning partly cloudy, as state regulators begin cutting back on subsidies and incentives. Even in Vermont, which has set a goal of getting 90 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2050, and where the governor had touted a renewables boom since he took office in 2011, state regulators are tapping the brake. The Public Service Board, which regulates utilities in the state, earlier this month issued an order scaling back support for solar that has industry officials and environmentalists complaining loudly. The changes include a sharp reduction in the amount of power utilities will be required to buy from customers who generate it with rooftop solar panels. “It would take close to a century for Vermont to repower our grid with local renewable energy if the arbitrary yearly cap in this rule were implemented,” said Olivia Campbell Andersen, spokeswoman for the industry group Renewable Energy Vermont. The Vermont rules follow similar changes in Arizona, Nevada and elsewhere in which politicians and regulators are looking for shade from some of the solar boom’s effects. “Utilities are concerned about increasing penetration of rooftop solar in their territories,” said Sean Gallagher, vice president for state affairs at the Solar Energy Industries Association. is an exception, and is pushing distributed generation to the extent of marketing a new Tesla battery allowing customers who make solar electricity during the day to use it at night. There’s also concern about consumers who haven’t gone solar absorbing costs formerly borne by those who have: If a homeowner with solar rolls the electric meter back to zero, that leaves the non-solar neighbors to pay the costs of utility line... Vermont and other states are moving to impose or increase “nonbypassable charges” — a minimum amount customers must pay to be hooked to the grid. Solar defenders say users of the energy provide other savings to the system that should allow them to claim they’re paying their way. The Vermont rules reduce rates utilities must pay for customer-provided solar and cap the amount of power utilities must take to 4 percent of their load. Johanna Miller, energy program director with the Vermont Natural Resources Council, said that size limit likely would kill plans by some Vermont cities and towns to install solar arrays large enough to power schools and municipal buildings. Montpelier City Councilor Anne Watson, the council’s liaison to the city’s Energy Committee, said the rules could prevent the city from reaching its goal of becoming “net-zero” — using no more energy than it produces. Ashley Brown, executive director of the Harvard Electricity Policy Group at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, said the solar industry will be more competitive in the long run if the training wheels come off. “Do we want to keep throwing cash at solar installers, or do we want to let consumers get the benefit of the marketplace and declining costs. Andersen said the industry has seen declining costs, and is not opposed to reductions in the rates utilities pay solar customers for net-metered power.www.burlingtonfreepress.com
