Democracy and Nuclear ….increasingly clear that one must be ditched to have the other.
The British government has long considered democracy a threat to “the existing order”. Recently, the UK Parliament voted to override county and local democracy, in order to facilitate the dumping of its nuclear waste on communities. On the 25 Mar 2015, Ayes were 277 and Noes 33, for the dumping of democracy, along with the nuclear waste. Already in 1984, Hilda Murrell spoke of the “inbuilt tendency to dictatorship”, as an outgrowth of the nuclear industry. Since no one in their right minds wants a nuclear waste dump near them, they must either send all nuclear waste to landfills, as they’ve started doing already, or force nuclear dumps on communities. Sending nuclear waste to landfills involves extermination of the inhabitants of the British Isles over time; the second involves the dumping of democracy.

Another excellent article from Mining Awareness…THANK YOU M.A! “Each of three proposed Moorside nuclear reactors is 6 times bigger than Windscale, and larger than Chernobyl.”
“The Chernobyl accident is an obvious example of how human failures when dealing with a modern technical system can have global consequences and also be a potential threat to what we like to think of as the unspoiled wilderness of the Arctic ” (Ahman, 1998)
“The Windscale fire of 10 October 1957 was the worst nuclear accident in Great Britain’s history, ranked in severity at level 5 on the 7-point International Nuclear Event Scale.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windscale_fire Each of three proposed Moorside nuclear reactors is 6 times bigger than Windscale. They are bigger than the Chernobyl reactor.
In “Windscale fallout underestimated“, by Rebecca Morelle-BBC News, 6 October 2007, one finds a rare map of the Windscale fallout plume: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7030536.stm It seems have traveled about the same distance as the Chernobyl fallout.

“Although Sakurajima’s activity since 1955 has been characterized by frequent small eruptions, the volcano still poses a danger to the densely-populated surroundings. Roughly 7,000 years ago Sakurajima erupted with a volcanic explosivity index (VEI) of 6, equivalent to the 1991 eruption of Mount Pinatubo“. (Emphasis added) http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/NaturalHazards/view.php?id=45388&eocn=image&eoci=morenh
Sakurajima is classified as a “Decade Volcano”, one of 17 volcanoes, worldwide, “identified by the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth’s Interior (IAVCEI) as being worthy of particular study in light of their history of large, destructive eruptions and proximity to populated areas“. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decade_Volcano
