Nuclear Waste “Slow Motion Nuclear War” by Professor Robert Jacobs

Part 1 of the thought provoking Talk by Prof Robert Jacobs of the Hiroshima Peace Institute. “Slow Motion Nuclear War” makes it clear that nuclear power was born in violence. Nuclear power’s violence to the planet is a globally distributed ‘gift’ of anthropomorphic radioactive fallout that will keep on giving despite the ‘competence’ of the nuclear industry.

Part 2 of the talk by Prof Robert Jacobs focuses on Geological ‘Disposal’ : “any archeologist will tell you that what they find when they dig up a site is not what the people who buried it intended it to be – things change” “Slow motion violence is violence that happens so slowly we don’t even realise it is violence.” ” Deep geological storage is violence against future generations”.


A citizen science project carried out by Radiation Free Lakeland volunteers in Cumbria UK, in collaboration with nuclear science undergraduates at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in the US. The accuracy of the independent report has been confirmed by the Environment Agency but they fail to acknowledge that samples were taken without the use of expensive detecting (or any) equipment, Also plutonium was not tested for, so this report while accurate does not reveal the full picture. This means that the volume and viciousness of radioactive particles being washed onto our beaches is far greater than is being admitted to. It also means the likelihood of inhalation and ingestion of particles by beach users is far greater than “low.” Read the full report here:…

Many thanks to Southwest Against Nuclear for the video… a much more honest and direct report than that produced by the mainstream.

South West Against Nuclear


An Excellent and powerful analysis from Australia – wonder why our media have not come up with anything like this?

    The UK Government is insane if it approves further nuclear plant in the UK without addressing the issue of how to handle the nuclear waste in the long term over thousands of years, eventually 100000 years. To do otherwise is grossly irresponsible to future generations of people in the United Kingdom. Moreover, it is grossly disrespectful of the present generation to enjoy the benefits of (expensive) nuclear power and leave the mess for future generations to sort out. Renewable energy systems are now much cheaper, and steadily reducing in cost going into the future.
