“Implementing Geological Disposal”- the push for geological disposal is all about the plan to build more nuclear reactors, more plutonium and tritium for the military and has nothing whatsoever to do with protecting future generations from radioactive wastes . Radioactive wastes have the potential to make this planet uninhabitable for eons to come and are the biggest threat to all life as we know it on planet earth. “Green” Sweden, the home of Greta is taking the lead in this diabolic project to dump nuclear wastes dangerously out of sight and out of mind in order to build more reactors.
At a recent meeting in Cockermouth, Allerdale Councillors were informed that government agencies have been buying up farm land – Ennerdale is a case in point! The Irish Sea was also mentioned as a possible “host.” Cumbria County Councillors have already voted unanimously to allow deep mining infrastructure to be embedded under the Irish Sea – I wonder if they realise they have also willingly ushered in “experts in geological disposal” with West Cumbria Mining? The below is from their website….

NPS sets out the need for geological disposal infrastructure
The National Policy Statement (NPS) for geological disposal infrastructure was this month laid before Parliament. This is an important step on the journey to deliver a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) in the UK, which is designed to provide a safe, secure, and permanent disposal solution for our radioactive waste.
The NPS explains the national need for geological disposal infrastructure, provides planning guidance for developers and outlines the process for the assessment of development consent applications in England. Wales and Scotland have their own devolved policies and there is currently no siting policy for Northern Ireland.
Radioactive Waste Management is engaging with stakeholders, interested parties and communities to find a suitable site for a GDF – only where the local community is willing to host the facility.”
