Fukishima Now A Threat To The Whole Planet.... in International News Posted May 20, 2012 Yes this whole Fukishima debacle is rather worrying to say the least! The nuclear industry has a clear history of covering up their mucky little tracks in the media. It's a shame they don't clean up after themselves in the environment! Want a bit of proof... well they tried to cover up Chernobyl until the radiation alarms in a Sweedish nuclear plant went off! They panicked then realised it wasn't them. It was only when the whole world new it was coming from Russia that they finally admitted to it. Mayak Chemical Combine anyone? Most people haven’t even heard of it! It's the Russian Equivalent of Sellafield oh I mean Windscale or whatever they are calling it these days! The most radioactively contaminated place on this planet! Do a quick Google and check it out for yourself! It's far worse than Chernobyl! Oh there is also the Siberian Chemical Combine (Seversk), Andreeva Bay (but at least they are finally doing something about this one), the Lepse service ship etc. etc. etc..... This is just Russia! The Simi Valley Nuclear Disaster in America? These aside what is far more concerning for as all on this fair Island is Sellafield! An interesting read from Bellona in 2003 about this history of the place, historic discharge levels (including deliberate) some history of the Sellafield (Windscale) 1957 disaster in which the whole of the nuclear reactor was on fire for days and spewing radioactivity across the UK and Europe. This reactor was Air Cooled! http://www.bellona.org/reports/sellafield The real question is what proper alternatives are there to nuclear, oil, gas, wind (which is costly and unreliable) etc. Possibly Thorium, Fusion, Cold Fusion? We really need another Nicola Tesla to advance civilisation properly!
