German Government plans total pull-out from atomic power.

Remember: Total pull-out from atomic power is in the making by the following countries: Austria, Sweden, Italy, Belgium and Germany (2000). Poland stopped it’s construction of an atomic reactor (although they plan a new one in 2020), Ireland stopped the atomic program in their country.

17 of the E.U. countries do have plans for total pull-out.

Uranium is needed for atomic power plants. Uranium has a range of 60 years. If you renew Uranium for re-use in atomic power plants you get radioactive waste materials. The quarrying of 1 ton of Uranium causes 2000 tons of radiative material.

Atomic power is not environmental friendly and it cannot stop climate change.

It’s just another money printer for the industry.

Prepare yourself with easy-reads and contra-atomic information (Made in Germany):

Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory – 11,9 tons of steel cylinders full of spent U.S. atomic reactor fuel – kills in minutes. No permanent repository. map

Yucca Mountain, NV – the choice for U.S. high-level atomic waste – has been studied for over 20 years by the Department of Energy [web] – map – at a cost of US $ 4,000,000,000. Going to business in 2010, maybe. Could hold 77,000 tons of waste. Will be safe for 10,000 years according to DOE.gov. But the high-level waste is dangerous for a million years. Problem 1

Rocky Flats, CO – map – former U.S. weapons plant / closed 1989. Plutonium was slated elsewhere. Being transported with trucks over Interstate 25 to the waste isolation pilot plant near Carlsbad map – can be filled with 850,000 drums – full of transuranic waste by 2035. Pilot project – Problem 2

Officials from eight U.S. atomic power plants have signed a lease with Goshute Indians to store spent fuel in Skull Valley, Utah – map – it is planned to store there 44,000 tons of spent fuel. Is this a good deal regarding Problem 1 & 2? Problem 3

Paducah, KY – map – a gaesous diffusion plant for atomic-fuel processing. Groundwater is tainted because of 38,000 cylinders being stored there. Problem 4

Los Alamos National Laboratory, NM – map – haphazard disposal. Problem 5

Nevada Test site – map craters by atomic bomb explosions – waste disposals for radioactive waste. More than 800 craters. Are these good disposals? Problem 6

Do you know the first underground disposal for radioactive waste? It’s the Asse II in Germany – lately in the news with some serious scandal – click HERE for more – Asse II is called a ticking timebomb – with Plutonium measured 8 times above the limit. Oh, ehm, Problem 7 by the way. What does that mean for the U.S.?

Part 2 coming soon.
