Radiation Free Lakeland have launched a new website and campaign “Lakes Against Nuclear Dump (LAND)” which features a virtual exhibition exploring the new plan for a Geological Disposal Facility for Radioactive Wastes. The exhibition through multi media explores the history of the push to find the mythical Holy Grail of the Final Solution for Low Level, Intermediate and Heat Generating Nuclear Wastes in the Safest Place on Earth.
Unlike the Virtual Exhibition by Radioactive Waste Management on behalf of the “Working Groups” who have been persuaded to once again show an “interest” in a GDF, this Exhibition includes factual information about Cumbria County Council’s refusal to host a Rock Characterisation Facility and the ensuing 1997 Nirex Inquiry (Nirex is the forerunner of RWM).
The Inquiry inspector agreed with Cumbria County Council and found the geology of West Cumbria to be too complex and faulted to consider the concept of Geological Disposal.
It is concerning that Radioactive Waste Management and its partners are once again seeking to airbrush out and overturn the legal findings of the Nirex Inquiry The Exhibition will be updated regularly.
THE EXHIBITION CAN BE SEEN HERE….
