Not Before Time EDF’s Hunterston B is Switched Off For Good.

Hunterston B Photo by David Autumns "Good news Reactor 4 next and then this cracked and broken risk will be removed from our lives. Just the radioactive cocktail it has cooked up in it's internals to deal with for thousands after thousands of years. And they want to build more and claim them as green…" …

Nuclear power for MINDLESS, ENDLESS, ENERGY use – Data ”Farms” and Bitcoin – theme for November 21

This expresses well the real nuclear age of stupid – the Bitcoin world of AI and the dirty nuclear industry gearing up to provide vicious “clean” energy for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The 4IR would require more energy than all the other industrial revolutions put together.

Antinuclear

When you think about the stupidity of eternal wastage of energy , it’s hard to beat the system of the supposed ”CLOUD”. Every pointless little email, little emoji, and all the other bits of digital junk produced goes not up into the disappearing ether, but down into a dirty great computer server, just one of the accumulating number of dirty great computer servers. Far from being ”farms”, these collections of steel enclosed machines actually produce nothing, but they do CONSUME massive amounts of electricity.

No wonder that the nuclear industry loves them!

The nuclear industry also loves crypto-currency, Bitcoin being the current top favourite of energy-guzzling systems.

A pernicious trio – data farms, cryptocurrency, and nuclear power – leading the world into eternal energy consumption and environmental degradation.

Guest Post from Gordon Frederick Coggon – a Nuclear Test Veteran’s Experience

Gordon Frederick Coggon · During 1957 and 1958 I was one of 20,000 British serviceman sent to the central Pacific testing ground of British Hydrogen bomb tests which in my own case involved being at Christmas Island.(now named Kiritimati). During my year there I was subjected to radiation contamination. I witnessed two hydrogen bombs, the first …

Despite the frantic nuclear lobbying at COP26, Rolls Royce’s small nuclear reactors will be of zero use against greenhouse emissions – Jonathon Porritt — from nuclear-news

Rolls-Royce talks of the first plant ‘coming online by 2031’ – do please do the maths yourself. So let’s say 2035, to be generous, at the earliest. And therefore of zero benefit in terms of meeting the Government’s own target of a 78% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2035. It’s all such a pathetic […]Despite …

While the world’s attention is on the climate impacts of the coal mine, the inevitable highly mechanised mining induced earthquakes near Sellafield are ignored. WHY?

Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole

Why are the seismic and subsidence issues being ignored by NGOs and media? That is for them to answer. Whatever the reason the ongoing silence it is putting us all at immediate danger of an unlivable radioactively contaminated environment.

This is the latest in the extensive evidence on earthquakes caused by deep coal mining …

On the strong earthquakes induced by deep coal mining under thick strata-a case study

Abstract

Different from the shallow coal seam, in deep mining, the dynamic response of overlying rock has changed significantly due to the high in-situ stresses and complex geological conditions. The frequent occurrence…
