Read the events of today HERE – Scandal in German radioactive Waste disposal
Now, German Environment Minister Gabriel wants to develop a plan in 2008 on how to close the radioactive waste disposal Asse II till 2014. Source
Responsible for this scandal is the State Office for mining, energy and geology in the German federal state Niedersachsen (Landesamt für Bergbau, Energie und Geologie / LBEG) – HERE is their website. Today is June 24th and there is nothing about this scandal on their website – nothing! Also on the website of the operator of Asse II, the “Helmholtz Zentrum München” / Munich – HERE is their website – also: nothing about the scandal! Dirty!
There are similar and much more worse problems in radioactive waste disposals around the globe, for example in the U.S. and in Russia – combined with long half-lives of radioactive material and structural problems: A threatening problem to Environment, Health and Money.
Safety in atomic waste disposals is impossible, everywhere. There is no guarantee neither for the disposals nor for the atomic reactors, neither for the present, nor for the future.
40 years ago Asse II was called safe – and today? Similar problem: Remember the radiation limits for Tritium – given out by the ICRP a long forgotten scandal:
ICRP said, the tritium emission (from atomic power plants) in water should be 40.000 Bq. And now the crazy progress of the ICRP: In 1990 they said: Lets make 7000 Bq/ litre. This was proved by ACES (Comitee for environmental standards). They said: Wrong housenumber, change the 7000 (Because of cancer danger). They also said: Lower it to 100 Bq in five years until you get 20 Bq / Litre. I think its a big difference between 40.000 and 20, don’t you?
And that’s the problem: We allow non-onbjective organisations who count on atomic power and earn lots of money with it, to make the safety for us – even worse to care about our health. Future generations will have to pay a large price for it.
Every week, every day: New horror news from the atomic sector.
