New tensions on the way:

Irans president Ahmadinedschad denied reproaches in an interview with a british sender (Channel 4) that his country wants to build an atomic bomb. Source
“We don’t need it” he said.
But he wants to continue Uranium enrichment.

Senator and presidental race contender Obama said during a stay in Iowa, that President Bush und the Vice-President do not have the support and the authorization from the American people and the Congress, to launch another war. Source

It would be a terrible mistake to attack Iran – have a look here:
Preventing nuclear war in Iran

But, atomic power plants and atomic weapons are siamese twins.
What now?

Is this some kind of a 21st century challenge to say goodbye to technology?
Let’s say, like… atomic power?

According to Vattenfalls CEO Hans-Jürgen Cramer the company lost 100,000 customers in the last 4 months to competitors. Source

These may be some reasons:

# Fire in Vattenfalls atomic reactor “Krümmel” – June 28th 2007

# Vattenfall and the fire in a German atomic power plant – July 6th 2007

# New problems in the atomic power plant “Krümmel” – July 10th 2007

# Police search in atomic power plant “Krümmel” – July 13th 2007

# Vattenfall – 3rd shutdown of “Brunsbüttel” reactor in 4 weeks – July 18th 2007

As you maybe know, President Putin (Russia) declared during the APEC summit, that Russia wants to build 30 new atomic power plants. Maybe you know also the range of Uranium: 60 years. Then it is over. No turning back. So, if Russia builds new atomic power plants, let’s see how long Uranium will last. Also in Australia, ’cause Russia wants to run it’s new atomic power plants with imported Australian Uranium. A clever deal? Australia has got 40% of worldwide Uranium sources. But:

Oil & Uranium – same fate, same mistakes.

Future: New energy wars. Higher prices

Present: High subsidies for atomic energy worldwide

Again: Uranium range – 60 years

Do you know: No one contracted an insurance for any atomic power plant anywhere, ’cause an accident is simply too expensive.

More atomic power plants – higher atomic electricity prices – higher accident risk, and less Uranium.

No insurance.

Nowhere.

The dismantling of a reactor is more expensive than it’s building costs.

Clever deal?

On August 30th 2007 a so-called “B-52″ long range bomber was flying from North Dakota to Lousiana.

The problem: 3 atomic warheads on board.

 At “Minot” (Air force base – ND) they should have been dismantled.

As a consequence, the commander was fired.

Both, President Bush and defense secretary Gates have been informed by the military.

Air force speaker Edward Thomas said, that it is very important to endeavour that the ammunition was safe all the time and under control by the military. Source

I think this is a very serious problem.

According to Sigmar Gabriel, the environment minister of Germany, it is possible to achieve safety-related benefit when shutting down old atomic power plants. Source

This is a result generated by the latest incidents (June / July 2007) in atomic power plants, in Germany which are controlled by Vattenfall.

Source:

Fire in atomic power plant – operator: Vattenfall 1

Fire in atomic power plant – operator: Vattenfall 2

New problems in atomic power plant – operator: Vattenfall 3

(…)

Gabriel wants to close the following atomic power plants:

Biblis A – view Wikimapia map [1]

Biblis B – view Wikimapia map [2]

Brunsbüttel – view Wikimapia map [3]

Neckarwestheim 1 – view Wikimapia map [4]

Philippsburg 1 – view Wikimapia map [5]

Isar 1 – view Wikimapia map [6] in June 2009

This is a very important step in a safer future.
