GEOLOGICAL DUMP: “NO NEED, JUST A POLICY DESIRE”

Radiation Free Lakeland oppose the policy and push towards "Geological Disposal." There is and can be no SITE X ...not anywhere.  The technology does not exist to contain radioactive waste deep underground.   But the UK government needs to be seen to have a "final solution" plan in order to facilitate making much more dangerous …

Cracking Letter in the Westmorland Gazette …still no word from Mainstream Environmental Journos!

ThanX to Anita for this cracking letter. #IrishSea #KeepCumbrianCoalintheHole #LakeDistrictCoast #DivestFossilFuel #DivestParliament #StopFossilFuelExtractionNearNuclear

Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole

Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole

Another Cracking Letter from Anita in the Westmorland Gazette.  In a long running exchange this is a reply to Kent Brook’s letter about the “need” for coking coal to provide steel for WMD etc.  Whether or not you want nuclear WMD …there are other ways to make steel. To mine the coking coal you also need to mine the ‘middlings’ coal, off St Bees under the Irish Sea.

Here is Anita’s letter as it appeared in print

“MR KENT Brooks, (Letters, May 10, ‘Defence must be priority’) is, of course, entitled to his opinion about the proposed coal mine near Sellafield.

However, my opinion, having had a coal face worker in the family for many years, remains the same. Excavating a very deep coal mine beneath the Irish Sea, so close to Europe’s largest nuclear waste facility at Sellafield, is a risk too far.

Europe’s largest nuclear waste facility at…

Wastwater Chronicles

Signals for Survival! (web)

“Signals for Survival!” This theme has been mulled over for a long while. Now reaching a point where the 6th book in the Wastwater Chronicles is nearly ready to be magically transformed with ink, and derwent pencils into a comic book.  The theme is “Signals for Survival!”

Years ago I picked up a copy of the book by Niko Tinbergen, Hugh Falkus and illustrated by the wonderful Eric Ennion.  The book cost 39p and it was the best 39p ever spent.  Their award winning book was based on a film of the same name commissioned by the BBC in the 1960s.  Walney was the setting and the authors and illustrator describe the incredible sign language of the common seabirds the lesser black backed gull and the herring gull.

I have borrowed their 1960’s book and reimagined, reinterpreted….
