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

Where is a safe place for more than 350,000 tons of high level nuclear waste?

Radiation Free Lakeland 23rd May 2021, Members of the Copeland and Allerdale “Working Groups” are a few self
selected people who have put their faith in the nuclear industry’s
promises, they do not speak for Cumbria – or even for Copeland and
Allerdale although the Borough Councils’ have been persuaded to
‘join.’

We urge the “Working Groups’ to watch this film and
reconsider their reckless volunteering (once again!) of Cumbria’s
scientifically recognised complex and faulted geology as a deep dump for
high level nuclear wastes. Check out our Lakes Against Nuclear Dump website
for more information.

Over the last 60 years, more than 350,000 tons of
high-level nuclear waste have been amassed all over the world. This
material must be deposited for thousands of years in a safe place, i.e. one
that will not harm humans or the environment.

However, such a repository
has yet to been created and the production of nuclear waste continues
unabated. Swiss-based nuclear physicist and internationally renowned
repository specialist Charles McCombie and some of his most important
allies provide director Edgar Hagen with insight into their persistent
struggle to find the safest place on earth in order to resolve this grave
dilemma. “The question is not whether the nuclear waste will leak out of
Yucca Mountain, the only question is when it will happen.” Steve
Frishman, Nevada State Technical Policy Advisor and Yucca Mountain Project
Fighter since 1987.
