The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

How France multiplies hazardous nuclear waste.

Reporterre 11th Dec 2018  Claiming to ” recycle ” used nuclear fuel, the reprocessing industry complicates the management of waste by increasing the amount of plutonium and hazardous materials.
Most countries engaged in this dead-end way come out … but not France.
According to the official communication, the reprocessing does not generate
contamination, only ” authorized discharges ” . They are spit by the
chimneys, dumped at the end of a pipe buried in the Channel.
In reality, according to the independent expert Mycle Schneider, ” the plant is
authorized to reject 20,000 times more radioactive rare gases and more than
500 times the amount of liquid tritium that only one of the Flamanville
reactors located 15 km away. ” . It contributes ” almost half to the
radiological impact of all civilian nuclear installations in Europe ” .

  1. Think of all the protective clothing and gloves , as well as temporary containment devices that become contaminated in handling the lethal radionuclide soups, solids and gases. Mounds of tons of it! They have done a consistently thurough job of covering up the millions of tons of nuclear waste generated the true cost is astronomical and it is all suicidal.
    Exposure to only a few grams of cobalt 60, cesium 137, or strontium 90 can kill you relatively quickly. Internally, minute quantities are devastating. Total insanity

  2. Reblogged this on As' salaam Alaykem 🙂 Rahim and commented:
    Great worx, thanx; also, please: Carry the EARTH

    Submitted to site, etc.: Sometimes thinking about the not doing, or undoing of a thing, ing, action, inspires insight; a place for light to go; things to grow- no? Have you thought of not carrying the Earth too? Carlos Casteneda’s, ” Discipline is the art of feeling awe”, comes to mind. As in leaving no footprints, that followed none, which will echo on in all ways, always? Also, the Tao’s “useless tree”, Zen’s “empty cup”, Chan’s “empty boat”, and a Shaman’s:

    “If there was something in the air
    If there was something in the wind
    If there was something in the trees or bushes
    That could be pronounced and once was overheard by animals,
    Let this Sacred Knowledge be returned to us again.

    Artharvaveda (VII, 66) as quoted in Entering the Circle”

    Most appreciated of a fellow poet’s poem on Hello Poetry: “a hollow reed,
    longing at once to be the singer and the song”; reminds me of when I used to sing reality, and sometimes, even dance it 🙂 Here’s a twig of my Earth orientated twigs of poetree for All 🙂

    why

    As acid rain from your closed eye,
    An acre of rainforest falls each
    Second, Earth’s tears bleeding,
    For, all you see is grey.

    reality
