Return to Sender Environment
In the nuclear return to sender game, Germany had better watch its step! It is trying to send almost a ton of its nuclear waste from a failed experimental reactor (which had an accident long ago) to the USA on the grounds that the fuel originated in the USA, but if this is the game being played Germany should get hundreds of thousands of tons in return.

Obama, who has always been more wildly popular in Germany than he ever was in the US, is willing to take it and dump more nuclear waste on the majority poor people of Savannah River Site in South Carolina (probable kin to his mother, wife, and children). Those affiliated with one contractor at the Savannah River Site, Honeywell, were major campaign donors to Obama.[1] Also, Obama is believed close to Honeywell CEO, David Cote. Another contractor is URS, lead for the consortium running…

Scotland’s Nuclear Highway: Local Councils are Unaware and Unprepared

this is the reason we believe for the governments nuclear agenda….to continue with nuclear weapons. The nuclear industry and the MOD are intertwined.

Political Insight

Every month, at an undisclosed time of an undisclosed day, a convoy of 44-ton Ministry of Defence vehicles travels through Stirling’s city centre. Each of these trucks is able to carry up to 8kg of enriched, weapons-grade plutonium or uranium – which is surrounded by specially developed conventional high explosives. This is Trident, the UK’s nuclear deterrent, in motion – and Stirling Council appears more or less keen to ignore its existence.

What is Trident?

Overlooking Gare Loch, HM Naval Base Clyde – more commonly referred to as Faslane – plays host to the four nuclear submarines that compose Britain’s nuclear bargaining chip: Vanguard, Victorious, Vigilant and Vengeance. Each submarine wields a cargo of up to 16 Trident ballistic missiles, and each missile is capable of travelling at least 4,000 miles. In addition, each submarine carries three nuclear warheads – all of which wield the power to destroy Hiroshima three…

CoRWM committee member has misled The Geological Society on West Cumbria GDF MORI poll.

The poll used as a measure of support was not even representative of the people polled, never mind the whole of Cumbria. After the meeting at which the Mori Poll results were discussed in the (now closed) Whitehaven Civic Hall, we spoke to a young couple who had been rung by Mori. The young couple said that the pollsters told them that the GDF would be of benefit and would be safe. The young couple said that if they had realised there was opposition to the plan because of safety concerns they would not have said yes to the dump.

Cumbria Trust

Is CoRWM Genuinely Independent of Government?

Cumbria Trust is very concerned to hear that a key member of the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management, Professor Rebecca Lunn, has misled The Geological Society about the situation in Cumbria. This was during a lecture in March which was recently published on the CoRWM website.

CoRWM is supposed to be an independent voice, to advise and scrutinise the government on long term management of higher activity nuclear waste. It is clear that the committee includes some knowledgeable people, although its independence of government has long been a cause for concern.  Professor Smythe’s view is HERE

Here is a letter from Colin Wales, a Director of Cumbria Trust to Professor Lunn of CoRWM

Dear Professor Lunn

Cumbria Trust is concerned that you, as a member of CoRWM with responsibility for scrutinising the management of higher activity radioactive wastes, have misled The Geological Society during…
