Contingent on the Heat which occures during Summer, atomic power plants worldwide will have problems. The temperature in rivers is going to rise. So, less cooling water can be used from these rivers. And the other way: To avoid breaking the limit for minimum quantitiy, less warm water from the atomic power plants can be preluded into the rivers, because this would harm fish and the ecosystem.

Several atomic power plants will have their performance lowered. Take an example from 2006 / Germany: Operator and concern E.ON Energie web reduced the output from their atomic power plants by 50 % (!). The cause was the high temperature of the river “Weser”, whose water is directly used for cooling.

Atomic power plants do not guarantee security of supply.

The electricity price will rise.

This is an old blog entry made by me, but the Centre for European Economic Research now (on July 31st 2009) says, that cooling water is getting short because of climate change: HERE

They say, reactors will be without cooling water.

Interesting new German anti-atomic energy project:

http://younuke.de/

Movies about the lies, the work of atomic lobby and industry, in german lingo so far. You can type in your name – which will be then in the clip itself. A clever idea previously used durin Obama election.

Made by http://www.campact.de/

Campact is known by this:

In Germany 50% of the Government (the CDU fraction) wants a comeback of atomic power, although 100 % of the Government (CDU & SPD fraction) signed a total pullout from atomic power – contract. Now, people are demonstrating against this come back. SOURCE here and here (CAMPACT CIVL e.V. action), more than 2000 people were surrounding the building in which the CDU meeting was held (Berlin). More here

Democracy in Action!

Want so watch more anti-atomic movies?

Go on Tennerfilms!

Germany, July 25th 2009

An invigilator on a general transformer switched the reactor “Emsland” map off -after an incident – acccording to the operator RWE web. No reaction on RWE’s website so far, no press information. Federal and state officials have been informed, as RWE said. Emsland (1,400 MW, operating since 1988)  now is in one line with other german atomic scandals:

Jülich reactor radiation

Krümmel – Vattenfall scandal

Asse II scandal

or french atomic scandals:

Tricastion EdF and Areva scandals

Germany, July 18th 2009:

The environment ministry now examines high radiation caused in the research reactor “Jülich” map near the town “Karlsruhe”.  In the 1970ies few scandals happened there and they need to be inspected again. Jülich came into service in 1963. It is a pebble bed reactor. It went offline in 1978 after the worst case scenario nearly happend. Source

The moderator inside of Jülich is Graphit – just like in Chernobyl. The electric output was 15 MW. Due to it’s high radiation it is not possible to transfer the reactor into a waste disposal. Jülich is under a sarcophagus – for the next hundred years. It’s Germany’s Micro-Chernobyl.

In the meantime even pro-atomic power Government party “CDU” wants that scandal operators get their licence revoked (Source).

HERE are the other German atomic scandals

Printed by the IAHC in Minsk, Belarus, made public in December 2008 at the YouthConference held in Minsk. The photos are from the visit at the Brest State Technical University, April 2008. There, Prof. Severyianin showed us some of his 200 patents he has made. None of his projects have become real, but they are fully working. The Wind Energy Installment near Brest delievers 2 kw/h – because of it’s architecture, which is western style. Belarus needs another design, because of Belarus’ low wind speed.

Germany, July 9th 2009:

Vattenfall - swedish atomic reactor operator – also active in Germany, is in the headlines again. Again because of bad information policy and again because of an atomic scandal. The 2nd atomic scandal in one week, in one Vattenfall atomic power plant.

On July 6th 2009 there was the fire in a general transformator – which caused the reactor to shut down. After he was online again, after 2 years, because of this:

# 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

Then, on July 9th 2009 Vattenfall recognized damaged fuel rods in the reactor itself. All 80.000 fuel rods will be inspected – as Vattenfall said. The scandal reactor is “Krümmel” view MAP

Here is Vattenfall’s press information

According to the German newsmag BILD 72 % of all Germans want old atomic power plants to be shut down. Even 68% of all members of both Government parties CDU and CSU want old atomic power plant to be shut down.

Germany’s environment minister Sigmar Gabriel said during his stay at Chernobyl on July 10th 2009, that he also wants to take old reactors offline.

Again, a fire broke out in a generator transformer SOURCE - just like in 2007. Watch Vattenfall’s press conference online HERE

Emergency shut-down was and is the consequence. The reactor is now provided by external power grid. Federal environment minister Sigmar Gabriel now wants to put all atomic power plants under federal supervision. German chancelor Angela Merkel believes in Vattenfall. This is part of Angela Merkel’s history:

Angela Merkel was environment minister in the mid 90ies. Back in the days she allowed atomic waste to be dumped into Morsleben (Source) – which was a bad idea. The public was not good enough informed about that – according to sources of german television ZDF and the Federal Agency for Radiation Protection (web).

According to Vattenfalls CEO Hans-Jürgen Cramer the company lost 100,000 customers in 4 months to competitors in 2007. 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
