German chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) announced today that 7 reactors are going offline for three months. They will be tested for safety. For example, if they can resist against a plane crash. Every engineer tells you: They can’t. The only consequence can be the once and for all shutdown of all atomic reactors worldwide.

2009 a new book of rules was written, for higher standards in Germany’s atomic power plants. The rules we use today are 30 years old – also a reason why the seven plants are shut down at the moment

Atomic energy chief lobbyist Gerald Hennenhöfer (web) recommended Chancellor Angela Merkel NOT to use the new Rules for opterating atomic power plants in Germany, because then all german atomic power plants would have been shut down. SOURCE (speech SPD party Germany) And Gerald Hennenhöfer is now the man who supervises the testing on safety of the seven atomic power plants. Unbelievable.

So, the german government gives the people safety – for three months. After that, the danger continues – powered by the german government.

In the meantime the german government announced that they will stop and reduce support money for environmental energy projects and research.

German government bribed by atomic industry

Here is the list:

From 3/15/11 SOURCE

Biblis A (build 1974) [map] not enough emergency systems, quake area
Biblis B (build 1976) [map] not enough emergency systems, quake area

Unterweser (build 1978) [map] running with Plutonium MOX fuel, in 2007 the emergency cooling system went offline

Philippsburg (build 1984)  [map] not enough Bor solution in 2001, shutdown

Isar 1 (build 1977) [map] no protection against a plane – Operator E.ON shuts it nown down

Brunsbüttel (build 1976, offline since 2007) [map] Scandal plant operated by VATTENFALL (web) caused dangerous accidents at their atomic power plant “Krümmel” (offline since 2009) [map]:

Incident is the normal case at VATTENFALL


# 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

From 3/14/11:

The leading CDU party under chacellor Angela Merkel is going to shut down three german atomic reactors:

Biblis A [map]

Neckarwestheim  [map]

Isar 1 [map]


Reason: The situation in Japan casts doubts in the government about the safety of atomic reactors.

Not a single german atomic reactor would get a running admission today. They’re all to old. Biblis is located in a quake area, but is not built for quakes, for example.

The German Government is bribed by the atomic industry

Here are Germany’s atomic scandals

Fire in german atomic power plant 2007 – operator: Vattenfall

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

This is my reaction on the Dec. 11th 2007 released German KiKK study: HERE [1] and HERE [2]

And three days later, the IPPNW.org also wrote an article about the study: HERE [1] and HERE [2]

IPPNW also shows the efforts that were necessary. It’s sad, that the German Federal Agency for Radiation Protection (makers of the KiKK study) has not released an English version yet – 8 months later! HERE is their website.

It would be so necessary, because of the atomic reactor operators who throw around with their high and low radiation.

We should never forget, what former IAEA director Hans Blix said 22 years ago:

The world could handle a yearly atomic reactor explosion like the one in Chernobyl.

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):

German Federal Construction Minister wants 30 new Wind Energy Parks of 25,000 Megawatt

German politician: Atomic energy is NOT green

On June 29th 2008 Toshiba announced their plan to build 65 new atomic reactors. The CEO of Toshiba web told the press to build at least 33 new atomic reactors till 2015 and 65 till 2020. In 2006 Toshiba bought the U.S. company Westinghouse web –  U.S. atomic reactor builder. Now, Toshiba is No. #1 atomic reactor builder, before Areva web

Here are the other global plans:

McCain wants to build 45 new atomic power plants

IEA wants 1,300 new atomic power plants (32 each year)

Basically they want to build atomic power plants to do something against climate change (which already happened and happens). But atomic energy is NOT green energy

see HERE why (atomic energy is not green)

or HERE – 1 ton of Uranium causes 2000 tons of radiative waste

Then, have a look at the problems in the timebombs, pardon, I meant radioactive waste disposals:

Problems in Germany

Problems in the U.S. – 1st part

Where is Toshiba from? Right, Japan.

Have a look at Japanese atomic reactors:

Strong quake damages Japanese atomic power plant

Fire in Japanese atomic power plant
Every new atomic power plant is a money printer for the industry – paid by us

Every new atomic power plant is a Plutonium factory

Every new atomic power plant is a step back and makes the world an unsafer place

Every new atomic power plant reduces the range and makes Uranium more expensive

Achieved with 439 atomic power plants – that’s 439 times 2,000,000,000 EUROs.

Atomic power covers only a 10th of energy consumption in Germany.

In the 1960ies atomic power providers told the people: Power meters will be unneeded in the atomic power future.

Atomic power will be unneeded in the future.

Why are there soldiers in:

Afghanistan, the Caucasus Mountains, on the Balkan, in Sudan, Congo, in Iraq, and soon in Iran?

It’s all about ressources. Source

Uranium will be much more expensive and rare in an atomic power future and the consumption of atomic power will generate energy wars like the world has never seen before.

Every new peaceful atomic power plant

Every new peaceful reactor

is a step into an unsafe world of conflict.

And McCain See HERE and others (like the IEA and IAEA) want new atomic power plants – see HERE

And what about the Obama / Clinton unity? Have a look HERE
