Today in Keswick 90% of the people we spoke to were opposed to new nuclear build in Cumbria. This does not tally with what NuGen are saying which is that "Cumbria wants new nuclear build." A recent poll in the Evening Mail indicated that 85% of those voting do not want new nuclear build in … Continue reading Keswick says No to New Nuclear Build 20 miles away as the crow flies

We may never know his motive. But, he apparently wasn’t technically inclined enough to figure out how to remove the photos from his phone before disposal. And, yet, he was supposed to be operating and maintaining nuclear subs from September of 2007 to March of 2012.
“On January 19, 2009, at approximately 4:00 a.m., SAUCIER took two photos, one of the auxiliary steam plant panel and the other of the reactor compartment viewed through a portal. On March 22, 2009, at approximately 1:30 a.m., SAUCIER took two photos that, when placed side by side, provided a panoramic array of the Maneuvering Compartment, the room from which the propulsion system of the boat is operated. On July 15, 2009, at 12:47 p.m., SAUCIER took two photos documenting the reactor head configuration of the nuclear reactor and a view of the reactor compartment from within that compartment.” (USDOJ, 27…

Workers at All of France’s 19 Nuclear Power Stations Vote to Strike
First, workers at Nogent-sur-Seine nuclear power station voted on Tuesday night, 24 May, to power down the still operating nuclear reactor starting on Wednesday night for a 24 hour period as a protest against major modifications in the work legal code. It will take several days for the reactor to power back up. The other reactor at the site is already down due to a technical problem.
On Wednesday night, 25 May, workers at the other 18 nuclear power stations also voted to strike. This means that all 19 nuclear power stations in France will be on strike from early Thursday morning. While Nogent-sur-Seine said that they intend to power the reactor down to 0% output, to join the 0% output of the other reactor, the exact program followed by the other striking power stations was to be…

The unethical nature of nuclear power, nuclear weapons, and the entire nuclear fuel cycle is becoming more obvious, as its history unfolds. On grounds of nuclear weapons spread, unsolved wastes problem, health and environment, effects on indigenous and poor peoples, injustice to today’s and future generations – and even the sheer financial costs for now and the future – it is clear that “atoms for peace” is a false and unethical enterprise.
Given the mounting negative evidence about the nuclear industry, it is concerning that so many world political, scientific and economic leaders continue to promote the industry. Sir Mark Oliphant, (below) one of the founders of the atomic bomb, was one who had the courage to change his mind, and to speak out against nuclear power and nuclear weapons.
Why is it so rare for ‘important’ people to face up to the evil nature of the whole nuclear fuel…

Surge in renewable energy stalls world greenhouse gas emissions Falling coal use in China and the US and a shift towards renewable energy globally saw energy emissions level for the second year running, says IEA, Guardian, John Vidal, 17 March 16, Falling coal use in China and the US and a worldwide shift towards renewable energy have kept greenhouse gas emissions level for a second year running, one of the world’s leading energy analysts has said.
Preliminary data for 2015 from the International Energy Agency (IEA) showed that carbon dioxide emissions from the energy sector have levelled off at 32.1bn tonnes even as the global economy grew over 3% .
Electricity generated by renewable sources played a critical role, having accounted for around 90% of new electricity generation in 2015. Wind power produced more than half of all new electricity generation, said the IEA.
The figures are significant…
