Six people who were children at the time of the accident are suing TEPCO, claiming that they developed thyroid cancer due to exposure to radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident.

In the UK the nuclear industry and govnt have seized upon the “population mixing virus” theory to explain “excess” cancers in young people in the vicinity of nuclear installations. The nuclear industry gets away with so much harm…

Licence to Drill? Yes No Problem. Why Not Make it for 24 Hours a Day…

Ruthless Coal Mine Operators Have Already Pushed to Override Protections While Carrying Out Exploratory Borehole Drilling

Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole

Coal Mine “exploratory” Drilling Rig off St Bees Head

A letter sent today to the Coal Mine Planning Inspector

Dear Mr Normington,

Radiation Free Lakeland would like to bring this correspondence to your attention. The correspondence is from the Marine Management Organisation to West Cumbria Mining and It is in regard to exploratory borehole drilling by West Cumbria Mining. As you know the St Bees marine area is a sensitive receptor. It is for this reason that the small quarry at St Bees head, Birkhams Quarry “has key operational conditions imposed by Cumbria County Council planning permission 4/02/9022 which affords protection to sea birds by prohibiting blasting from within the bird-breeding season; Condition 21 which establishes a noise limit of 45dB(A) (normal speaking volume) at the nearest properties and Condition 14 which restricts operations to 08.00-18.00 hours on Mondays to Fridays.” The exploratory drilling operations by West Cumbria Mining also…

This is how I feel about the Ukraine crisis

I agree…

Antinuclear

We should study the whole context of this. Russia does not want to be encircled by threatening military systems, and probably nuclear missiles. Just as America felt threatened when Soviet Russia had placed missiles in Cuba. That caused a crisis, resolved when Russia removed those missiles. USA is obsessed with surrounding its perceived enemies with military installations.

The Ukraine government is corrupt, ( yes, I know Russia is corrupt, too) . Sections of Ukraine are ethicnally and linguistically Russian. Quite frankly, a return of Ukraine to Russia is no threat to America.

But NATO in Ukraine is a threat to Russia. USA is at grave risk of starting an uncontrollable war. What use would it be to bomb your enemy to obliteration, if you yourselves are also bombed to obliteration?

“Dump and Forget” Long Lived Wastes in the Land that Time Forgot….

Last weeks letter in the Whitehaven News by Tim Knowles hits the nail on the head repeatedly. All the more remarkable given that Mr Knowles was the Chair of the West Cumbria Managing Radioactive Waste Safely Partnership ( MRWS) as executive member for the environment at Cumbria County Council. Since that time MRWS has dropped …

You thought Rolls Royce’s Small Nuclear Reactors would be for electricity on Earth?

Don’t Look Up ?! Nuclear Powered Space Travel courtesy of nuclear “civil” infrastructure. No wonder NASA’s climate scientists are so keen on nuclear. NASA climate scientists love the recent film “Don’t Look Up” which is a clever “nudge” movie aimed at business as usual in the guise of ‘oh the poor NASA climate scientists we must listen to them or we are all gonna die’ The opposite is true – listen to them and we get life destroying plutonium crapola here on earth and in space.

Government Want YOU to Pay for New Nuclear

Thanks to CND for this information: The government is trying to force through controversial new legislation which will make consumers bankroll the nuclear power industry, whilst giving them no protection from spiralling costs. This will force thousands more families into fuel poverty.  The electricity generated from nuclear power is double the costs of renewables. Nuclear …
