None of the aboriginals whose bodies were discovered by the armed service personnel were living. The Aussie and British Defence personnel all died in their fifties from cancers. Australia spent over 100 $million cleaning up the …

WIPP leaders also want approval for plan to increase waste storage

Source NM, BY:PATRICK LOHMANN– AUGUST 8, 2022

Shipments of nuclear waste to the nation’s only deep geological repository for the hazardous material show no signs of slowing in the coming years, despite the current permit calling for the plant to begin closing in 2024.

The future of shipments to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant east of Carlsbad was the subject of debate and scrutiny during a meeting among a state legislative committee Friday in Clovis. The site stores waste like clothing, rags, soils and tools contaminated with radioactive elements due to nuclear weapons research and assembly in places like Los Alamos National Laboratory and Idaho National Laboratory.

WIPP leaders are seeking renewal of the 10-year permit that allows the site to continue receiving shipments, plus the state’s approval of an expansion of the plant to store more…

Hiroshima Anniversary: Radioactive Particles from UK Nuclear Bomb makers continue to wash up on the beach

Cumbria Wildlife Trust Invited Families today to St Bees for eating foraged food from the beach, wild swimming and digging in the sand where radioactive particles continue to wash up on the beach from the UK's nuclear bomb programme. Today is the anniversary of Hiroshima. The United States detonated two atomic bombs over the Japanese …

Drigg: Paul Merton Goes Where Angels Fear to Tread

Sharing this again – Drigg, home to the UKs Low Level Nuclear Waste Dump is now being eyed up as the Gateway for the High Level Nuclear Waste Dump – Boreholes to explore the geology for Near Surface Disposal of Intermediate Level Wastes (to “co-locate” surface facilities with GDF) have already been drilled – with no vote from anyone – not the public – not the councillors. Cumbria is being stitched up into a corner.

Is this the best expose in the last two decades of the UK’s “Low Level” Nuclear Dump ? Paul Merton fearlessly goes where Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth have not dared to tread for many a long year and shows the world the madness of nuclear…and all in a quaint little Lakeland coastal village called Drigg.

Chair of Conservative Party in NW Supports Government Appointment of Coal Boss to Nuclear Dump Plan

Following Radiation Free Lakeland's call (once again) for the Coal Boss to be sacked from his role as "invaluable" Government advisor on the deep Nuclear dump plans, the Chair of the Conservative Party in the NW, Chris Whiteside has viciously compared Radiation Free Lakeland to "nasty little" online trolls. The concerns about cronyism are legitimate …

An Open Letter to Michael Gove MP on the Cumbrian Coal Mine

An Open Letter to Michael Gove MP on the Cumbria Coal Mine and Nuclear Cronyism

Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole

Dear Michael Gove MP,

It was baffling to see that in amongst all the resignations from Boris Johnson’s Cabinet there was only one sacking. The sacking of yourself, Communities Secretary of State, due to give a verdict on the Cumbria Coal Mine on 7th July, the very next day.

Mainstream NGOs assume that your decision on the Cumbria Coal Mine was to be an approval and see your sacking as an opportunity to now lobby Greg Clark MP who has taken over your role as Communities Secretary.

As the first group to oppose the coal mine back in 2017 we see it in an entirely different light given your achievements while Environment Secretary. Under your leadership was the creation of the Marine Conservation Zones. MCZ’s are a landmark in a vision aiming to protect the oceans. The Irish Sea Marine Conservation Zone includes the Irish Sea area of the proposed…

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

Listening to the talking heads on BBC going on about the coal mine and deliberately avoiding the elephant in the room has prompted this petition calling for the sacking of the Coal boss from his role as “invaluable” Government advisor for the Nuclear Dump plans.

PETITION CAN BE SIGNED HERE

Government is due to make a decision on whether or not the Cumbria Coal Mine should go ahead. This would be the first deep coal mine in over 30 years. This area of the Irish Sea includes Marine Conservation Zones and other protections

The CEO of the proposed “Woodhouse Colliery” is Mark Kirkbride.

In 2019 Mark Kirkbride was appointed to the Government Committee on Radioactive Waste Management.

Kirkbride’s “invaluable” role in that Committee involves:
“scrutiny and provision of advice to BEIS (Dept of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy) and…

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…

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 …
