Nuclear Nightmare To Expand in Lancaster Area? Heysham 3 ??? NO!

  ~The Nuclear Nightmare Continues....unless.....we stop it.  Some say that it won't be public pressure or environmentalists that stop nuclear but it will be the finance, the profligate, unending use of public money.  This sounds wonderful but it does not of course account for the underlying reason why the government wants new nuclear.  New nuclear …

My Heart Faileth When I Behold Radioactive Rainbows In The Sky

What would Wordsworth Say?

Mining Awareness +


A UK so-called planning firm “One Creative Environments” has proposed the most bizarrely stupid idea for “beautifying” the proposed Westinghouse-Toshiba AP 1000 Nuclear Power Station (Moorside) in Cumbria, UK – fake rainbows over the nuclear site. But, there will be real radioactive rainbows due to the planned radioactive discharges from the nuclear power station, making the fake rainbows as sickening as silly. The uranium might even come from the area of the Grand Canyon, as explained further below.

As Radiation Free Lakeland points out “This isn’t a spoof, wish it was it would be the best ever….” In an embarrassment to the concept of planning in general and British Town and Country planning in particular the “plan” calls for “two large glass towers that would use light and mist to create a continual arching rainbow over the site….” See image and more here: https://mariannewildart.wordpress.com/2017/07/27/nuclear-power-farts-rainbows-official/
