I would like to respond this to: Bertrand Barre, Scientific Advisor, Areva Group http://www.business-standard.com/india/news/qa-bertrand-barre-scientific-advisor-areva-group/442294/

FRANCE several years ago adopted a law that everything in the nuclear field – very flexible – falls under military protection and military interests of the State: The secret-défense. And accordingly any activity which is as some sort of injury or Threat to this secretdéfense can relate to strict fines and jail sentences. German article, page 9: http://www.plage.cc/_files/plagenews/pn2009_02.pdf

Quote & translation:

“”One of the french activists of Réseau Sortir du Nucléaire and Opponents of nuclear power plants and of the nuclear state par excellence is Stéphane Lhomme. About four years ago he was arrested, his office PC and searched. Why? He had an internal paper of the French nuclear industry published, which stated that the highly touted new “EURO-reactor” EPR is not safe against heavier aircraft crash or attack.Such a publication, is, of course not so favorable, because it shows the lies of the french insurance companies and atomic industry to the public and is a threat to the “Nuclear renaissance”.

Because supposed to decisively improved European Pressurized-Water EPR is the killer application according to the french atomic industry.France several years ago adopted a law that everything in the nuclear field – very flexible – falls under military protection and military interests of the State: The secret-défense. And accordingly any activity which is as some sort of injury or Threat to this secretdéfense can relate to strict fines and jail sentences. Stéphane Lhomme has since summoned several times and long been questioned. One one step further, and you would be almost at the post-Soviet Conditions, such as those in today’s Russia again.

The decision “Process yes or no” is very delayed an unusually long time, the legal sword of Damocles: as long as possible about him. PLAGE Austria and Réseau Sortir calls that the case against Lhomme is finally set. This requirement supported PLAGE the end of May 2009 in a lengthy letter to the Chief Prosecutor of the Paris Court of Appeals, Laurent Le Mesle”

Here is another response: AREVA‘s EPR Reactor has 3000 Safety Flaws and undermines free speech and democracy in India: http://www.monde-diplomatique.de/pm/2011/04/08.mondeText.artikel,a0046.idx,12

Some translated quotes:

“AREVA is mired in crisis and requires a huge capital injection.” “Jaitapur lies in a seismically critical zone of the Category IV means that there are up to magnitude 7 earthquake on the Richter scale held for possible.”

After the accident has technically ended begins the social accident, begins the humanitarian accident, begins the health accident – like in Chernobyl

Japanese officals and WHO ignore irradiated Japanese Children

# The IAEA will call Fukushima “not as bad as Chernobyl”

# The IAEA will ignore all kinds of cancer created by the Fukushima catastrophe, except thyroid cancer among children, women and men – like in Chernobyl

# The WHO will ignore the suffering of the Fukushima children, women and men – like in Chernobyl

# The IAEA and WHO will ignore the rising infant mortality and the mutagenic impact on insects.

# The Reconstruction will begin, mostly old people will return into contaminated areas, with or without Recommendation of the Government and IAEA / WHO – like in Chernobyl

# The yearly accepted radiation dose will be increased by the ICRP and IAEA, and accepted by the WHO and all health ministeries – like in Chernobyl

CHECK March 19th 2011: Six Fukushima liquidators were irradiated with 250 MilliSievert, after the radiation limit was increased to 250 MilliSievert. They did it already!

# Experts, scientists, physicists and questionable and criminal assistance programs (partly founded by the atomic industry) will courageto the people to remain or to live in contaminated areas – like in Chernobyls

# Pectin will be recommended to evacuate one’s bowels of radiation, which will be uselss, because the people remain where they are: In contaminated areas – like in Chernobyl

# The contaminated areas will be experimental laboratory for the atomic industry – like in Chernobyl

# There will be no compensation, but discounts for Fukushima children, Fukushima students, Fukushima pensioners – like in Chernobyl

# Fukushima children will be sent into foreign countries or regions in Japan, to recover – like in Chernobyl

# Gradually, numbers of victims will be revised downwards – like in Chernobyl

# Complaints of the population will fail – like in Chernobyl

# The accident will grow, like an inverted pyramid, with the top at the bottom – like in Chernobyl

# No government, no international Organisation will hear the cry of the Fukushima Children like in Chernobyl

The only specific humanitarian aid will come from Non Government Organisations like in Chernobyl

Do the obvious

Speak the truth

My greatest wish: That I’m wrong

There is an iniative in Spain against it’s atomic waste disposal. Watch impressions below or have a look at their blog site here.

I’ve found their selfmade newspaper online. It’s really great, have a look at it HERE

Lithunia State puts it’s 2nd Ignalina atomic reactor offline – for ever. The first one was put offline in 2004, because the E.U. demanded it, for Lithunia’s entry into the European Union. Source

But what is so special about Ignalina’s reactors? map here Here is it’s scandal history:

Ignalina was, until today, one of the worlds most powerful atomic power plants: Gigantic Chernobyl RBMK architecture, with an out put of 1500 MW.

It was running since the 1980ies, but also one of the most dangerous atomic power plants in the world. Because of time shortage, the engineers and officials dispensed with important safety installements. For the operators the time schedule was more important.

The following safety installements were missing until today in Ignalina:

lift installements to exchange bad wires were not installed

inspection installements for tube inspection were missing

steam seperators were false installed: they were important to exchange (which needs to be done in every atomic reactor in a 5 year cycle). In the meantine those steam seperators became so porous, that they couldn’t seperate the water. So the water steam became so hard, that it could destoy the turbine blades. So it could have entered the machine sector and react with the oxygen there – which could have lead to an oxyhydrogen explosion.

– the necessary repairs would have to be done, while pulling the reactor cover off (!!!). Costs: Several hundreds of millions of dollars. Duration: 2 years. 80 % of Lithunia’s electricity comes from Ignalina, except they would continue to run the reactor while it’s being repaired, under the free sky…

– thanks to the soviet decay in 1989 Lithunia became a part of the nuclear club, with no experience.

– Ignalina has the same architecture as Chernobyl – a crash would destroy the small country totally, and not only them: Berlin, Stockholm, Minsk, Riga, St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Warsaw also.

– in 1994 terrorists tried to blackmail Lithunia with an terrorist attack on Ignalina, they wanted a mafia boss to be released from prison.

– since 1992 there were many leaks of radioactive emissions from Ignalina.

– since then there is the whisper, that the officals hire a dairvoyant for their reactors.

But at the same time the European Union supports the Restart of the Bulgarian Junk Reactor “Kosloduj” (in service since 1974) – one of Europes most dangerous reactors (Source).

Here is a list of dangerous atomic reactors:

Sosnowij Bor – Russia
Medzamor – Armenia
Smolensk – Russia
Kursk – Russia
Kosloduj – Bulgaria
Bohunice – Slovakia
Saporoschje – Ukraine
Mochovce – Slovakia
Jusnukrainsk – Ukraine
Dukovany – Czechia
Kola – Russia
Nowoworonesh – Russia
Kalinin – Russia
Balakowo – Russia
Bjelojarsk – Russia
Rowno / Khmelnitzki – Ukraine
Paks – Hubgary
Temelin – Czechia
Krsko – Russia
Cernavoda – Romania
Rostow – Russia

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.
