There are Much More Powerful Greenhouse Gases than CO2 and EDF’s Nuclear Reactors are Spewing Them Out (Apart from Toxic Radioactive Emissions!!)

EdF finally admit that operational nuclear power station discharges of Sulfur hexafluoride gas make massive contributions to Global warming/Climate change Flamanville nuclear power plant has exceeded the threshold for discharging SF6. In nine months, the quantity of SF6, the most powerful greenhouse gas, released by the Flamanville nuclear power plant in La Manche, has already …

Diné groups seek justice

“Clean Energy”?? It starts here with human rights abuses of indigenous people.

Beyond Nuclear International

Appeal ruled “admissible” by Inter-American Commission on Human Rights

By Valerie Rangel

History of the Diné Territory

Both the Crown Point and Church Rock communities lie within the area of northwestern New Mexico traditionally used and occupied by the Diné. According to Navajo cosmology, the Diné emerged from a series of worlds into the current world. When First Man and First Woman emerged, they formed the four sacred mountains with soil from the previous world. This area is considered the cradle of Diné civilization and the birthplace of several important Diné deities.

Water is Life

Water is the lifeblood of the planet. Access to a clean environment is vital to the continuation of language and culture for Indigenous communities. The Diné have distinct cultural and spiritual ties to the land, and the environment provides subsistence within their traditional homeland. The Diné worldview is that all things are interrelated and interdependent…

Nuclear for climate? – DON’T MENTION RADIATION! – theme for October 21.

Radiation and the Big Silence

Antinuclear

Recommending nuclear power as a a cure for climate change is like recommending cigarette-smoking as a cure for obesity – Helen Caldicott

Well, it’s just not nice to talk about ionising radiation right now – when we’re all gearing up for the COP26 Glascow climate change talkfest . I mean, by now the nuclear lobby has probably bribed its way into the conference, along with other corporations.

You’re allowed to mention – costs , safety, even time delay – in assessing the relationship of the nuclear industry to global heating.

Strangely – you can talk about the rapid health effects of tiny invisible viruses. BUT NOT the slow drawn out effects of tiny particles of low-level ionising radiation. Health impacts of unseen dangers

Especially ignored are thg effects of Internal exposure – radioactive particles taken in by breathing or swallowing:

The dangers are probably still small for most foods, but…

POWERTECH URANIUM DENIED! WATER MANAGEMENT BOARD’S VOTE WAS UNANIMOUS.

Good News ! “Yesterday was a good day in South Dakota, where Powertech/Azarga Uranium wants to do in situ leach uranium mining in the southwestern Black Hills. Due to federal lawsuits filed by the Oglala Sioux Tribe, federal permitting for the project is in limbo. “

Black Hills Clean Water Alliance

Yesterday was a good day in South Dakota, where Powertech/Azarga Uranium wants to do in situ leach uranium mining in the southwestern Black Hills. Due to federal lawsuits filed by the Oglala Sioux Tribe, federal permitting for the project is in limbo. There has not been a cultural resources survey on the 12,000+ acres of the proposed project, and the area is sacred to Lakota and other indigenous peoples — as are the entire Black Hills.

BHCWA’s Counsel, Mr. Bruce Ellison, gives a brief update about what transpired at the Water Management Board meeting – Powertech must wait until for Federal Permits.

Nonetheless, the company has been trying to restart the process for its state water permits, which was put on hold in 2013. Yesterday, this effort ran into determined resistanceat a meeting of the SD Water Management Board. State Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources water staff opposed the…

NEW -British Scientist discovers the cause of cancer in the Hiroshima Black Rain survivors -2021

“The true risks from internal exposures to Uranium, as in Depleted Uranium weapons, are more than a hundred times or more than current legal limits are based on. The implications of this discovery are clearly massive and far-reaching for all things involving nuclear.”

British Scientist discovers the cause of cancer in the Hiroshima Black Rain survivors

Massive errors in the basis of legal controls on radiation exposures

In a peer-reviewed paper published by the respectable journal Cancer Investigations ,British Scientist Dr Christopher Busby reveals the results of his investigative research into the Hiroshima A-Bomb Black Rain, torrential rain that fell on Hiroshima after the detonation of the US atomic bomb.

The issue of cancer risks in people who lived in the area of the back rain was headlined recently when the Japanese government lost a court case taken by Hibakusha groups who believed that their cancers were a result of the A-Bomb, but who lived in the black rain areas too far from the detonation to have received any external radiation dose. One problem for these people is that there has been no scientific explanation. The black rain was believed to be insufficiently…

Allowed Earth Shocks from Coal Mine Five Miles From Sellafield Would Be As Great as That from Continous Blasting….Unless….

In amongst the vast acres of NGO and press focus on climate/steel/jobs we managed to get the Inspector's attention on seismicity near Sellafield. No mean feat considering the Secretary of State has not asked to be informed on seismic impacts or subsidence just five miles from the world's riskiest nuclear waste site, Sellafield and the …
