Sack Cumbrian Coal Mine Boss from Government Advisor Role for Nuclear Dump

Cumbria Coal Mine – Don’t Mention the Nuclear Dump and Our “Invaluable” Advisor

Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole

Mark Kirkbride Joins the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management – 2019

Irish Sea to be site of seismic blasting at cost of sea life

By Linda Pentz Gunter

Imagine being subjected to ear-shattering blasts every ten seconds, twenty four hours a day for four straight weeks? By any metric, that would qualify as the most appalling form of torture.

But that is exactly what is about to be inflicted on whales, dolphins, seals and other marine creatures in the Irish Sea if a new wave of opposition cannot stop it.

The Irish Sea is already the most radioactive sea in the world, in large part a result of decades of radioactive discharges from the Sellafield reprocessing facility on the Cumbrian shoreline.

Now, Nuclear Waste Services (NWS) has contracted a company called Shearwater Geosciences to blast its undersea seismic airguns off the Cumbria coast this summer, calling it “scientific research”.

NWS, a division of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, is tasked with finding…

Rally: Tomorrow in Whitehaven at the Harbour 1pm – See You There!

T shirt freshly painted for tomorrow's rally. It is bizarre that people fully believed the fake whale in Whitehaven was real and the press happily went along with the hoax under banner headlines. But the same national and local press are saying nothing at all about the siesmic testing for a deep hot nuclear dump …
