"The time has come the Walrus said to speak of many things. Of nuclear waste in shipping crates and jellyfish with wings.." Dear Friends Just had a phone call from Cumbria County Council saying the Drigg Nuclear Dump decision will be taken in Kendal on 15th July at 9am. I will speak on behalf of … Continue reading Lock the Gate on Drigg Nuclear Waste Site: 15th July in Kendal
NuGen Boreholes in the Irish Sea near Sellafield will churn up and resuspend what is effectively the worlds biggest nuclear dump sitting on the sea bed. Please write, oppose, take a stand. This is due to start in late February.
NuGeneration Limited (NuGen) wants to build three nuclear reactors (Moorside) near Sellafield nuclear site in Cumbria UK. NuGen is a consortium of Japan’s Toshiba and France’s ENGIE (GDF-Suez). Like all nuclear reactors, they will legally discharge lethal radioactive materials into waterways. Although ocean dumping of nuclear waste is supposed to be illegal, offshore pipelines apparently remain a loophole. Radioactive discharges from the offshore pipeline(s) of Moorside would add to the already heavy radioactive burden of the Irish Sea and ultimately the Arctic. Not only Britain, but Ireland, Norway and those concerned with the Arctic should be alarmed. Additionally, cooling water intake pipes trap and kill marine life. Of current concern, borehole surveys for the intake and outfall pipes will disturb over half a century of radioactive sediment from nearby Sellafield’s discharges.

Nuclear Tosh(iba) Reigns Supreme While Cumbria is Stitched Up By Those Who Should Be Protecting People and this Magical Corner of the Planet As the first consultation for Moorside drew to a close on the 25th July the company behind NuGen, Toshiba was caught cooking the books while Cumbria County Council waxed lyrical about "nuclear aspirations". … Continue reading Nuclear Tosh(iba) Reigns Supreme While Cumbria is Stitched Up
THANKS to the Cumberland News for reporting on this. Previously there has been a media black out for whatever reason - even when Lillyhall got a permit from the Environment Agency, over and above the heads of councillors to dump high volumes of radioactive waste the reporting on the matter was zilch. The reporting was also zilch when … Continue reading In this weeks Cumberland News: Demands over monitoring waste – RADIOACTIVE WASTE!
There is something seriously wrong when the UK nuclear industry's corruption of governance is exposed not by Greenpeace or Friends of the Earth but by a brave and principled Sellafield worker. The national media have gone along with the myth that the Sellafield Workers Campaign represent the workforce and West Cumbria. Cumbria is being sold … Continue reading Letter from Sellafield Worker Exposes Nuclear Corruption
http://youtu.be/oxQdxmrKz58 Her Majesty's Government plot exposed. If Cumbrians continue to oppose a geological nuclear dump under their beautiful land, Lord O'Neill, celebrated member of the Humanist Society advocates a more "aggressive" approach. Meanwhile the press keeps schtum and says nothing about this abuse of human rights. Don't scare the horses? https://mariannewildart.wordpress.com/2013/12/10/lords-select-committee-treated-to-porky-pies-by-michael-fallon/
The map above is to scale and shows the size of the area proposed by government for a geological dump 25km square under Cumbria's beautiful rivers, mountains, towns and villages. The discussions as to "where this would go" under Cumbria are a meaningless distraction - this would be so big and so leaky it would … Continue reading ‘The Gift’ That No One Wants
