Costs of an atomic reactor accident like the one in Chernobyl (1986): up to 5,000,000,000,000 EUROs – that’s 3 nulls more. The German CDU Government party supports this with their aim to build new ones. However their partner SPD Government party does not want more atomic power. Why?
Both signed a contract – content: Total pull-out from atomic power.
And now, with the help of G8 and higher oil prices they try to start an pro-atomic-power-war. The atomic lobby / industry consists of two interesting species:
Polticians sitting in the Government who came from the atomic industry. Lobbyists sitting in concerns and board of directors who came from Government parties.
Former Federal Minister Margareta Wolf of the German Greens – now making PR for longer atomic power plant milages – see HERE
Former Federal Minister Wolfgang Clement of the German SPD party – now in the board of directors of RWE – an atomic power plant operator – see HERE
Department chief for reactor safety, radiation protection, and nuclear dumping, Walter Hohlefelder became general agent of E.ON – see HERE – he was no longer Supervisior of it – no! Instead he became the Leader of it!
Atomic convern VIAGs top civil servant Gerhard Hennenhöfer also became a “E.ON member”. – see HERE
Energy referent Wolfgang Dirschauer (long time nodal point of energy in German Government) – went into the climate safety department of Vattenfall – remember them as the big loser of 2007 HERE
Former Energy servant of the SPD party Gerd von der Gröben now is attorny in fact of E.ON – see HERE
Former state secretary and politician of the German Greens Rezzo Schlauch now is an advisor of the concern and atomic power plant operator EnBW – see HERE
SWR Broadcaster director Willi Steul became also an EnBW advisor.
These German politicans were actually PAID by the Atomic Industry:
CDU Economy politician Laurenz Mayer regularly “granted benefits” from atomic concern RWE. He still is in Government (!) – web
FDP Technology politician Ulrike Flach was paid by atomic power plants constructor and concern SIEMENS. – also still in Government (!) – web
more to come (…)
One suitcase of money, one suitcase of studies. Both by the atomic industry. And then it’s written: “Studies have shown…” etc… Lobbyism in Germany nearly adjoins curroption.
