Another Government Committee set up with the stated purpose to “Implement Geological Disposal’ of heat generating nuclear wastes under Cumbria. NO …..How many times do we have to say NO!
Radioactive Waste Management Limited (RWM) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority. RWM supports Government’s programme to implement geological disposal. They are responsible for delivering a geological disposal facility.
“We have set out our initial thoughts on how the national geological screening exercise will help communities better understand the geology of their area, and how the results would help in identifying a potential site for a geological disposal facility (GDF).”

Decommissioning means Dispersal to the Environment. Decommissioning should mean CONTAINMENT of the waste on the existing site. The industry is already sending radioactive scrap metal to Studsvik, the radioactive scrap metal dealers in Lillyhall, Cumbria and now they want to send even higher activity radioactivity scrap metal, the really nasty stuff, intermediate level. This is an area of Cumbria that was previously clear of nuclear Crapola. It is way past time to Lock the Gate on Nuclear.
What appear to be large and small nuclear components at the Energy Solutions Low Level Waste Facility in Clive, Utah. Some large San Onofre (California) NPP components (Nuclear Reactor Vessel Head-Steam Generators) have been sent there.
Some French don’t want the reactor parts from their 9 old decommissioned reactors in France. The French government is majority owner of EDF. So, there are very high stakes with this SEPA consultation, deadline on Oct. 3rd. EDF (France) appears basically asking for a carte blanche for importing and exporting EDF nuclear waste at Hunterston and Torness Nuclear Generating Facilities in Scotland. http://www.sepa.org.uk/about_us/consultations.aspx One critical point as explained by SEPA (buried on p. 10 of the 20 page document):
“EDF has applied to allow the receipt of radioactive waste on to both stations for interim storage and onward disposal. These wastes will have arisen at other EDF Energy nuclear power stations, and the…

If the nuclear reactors proposed for Cumbria are so safe, why has this CEO sold a million shares in his own company BEFORE AP1000 reactors in the USA have even been built?
The question of the day is what does Southern Company CEO Thomas Fanning know that the rest of the world doesn’t?
The question arises because on September 5th, Fanning sold nearly all his stock in Southern Company, more than a million shares, putting nearly $47 million into his bank account. He kept only 35,000 shares.
That’s a tidy sum, and would seem to be incentive enough to sell–unless one thought the stock would rise higher. It’s not like Fanning was selling off a few shares because he needed some cash to renew a country club membership or something. No, Fanning sold more than 90% of his stake in the company he runs. Not many people have pressing bills of $47 million.
And, after all, Southern Company has been telling Georgia regulators for…
