Any nuclear power station needs to carry insurance of $100 billion! The cost has bankrupted Japan-the second biggest economy in the world.
The Japanese are the most technically adept nation on earth. Fukushima demonstrated conclusively that no nation on earth can do nuclear fission safely. There is no upper limit on earth events.
A gas degree eight earthquake in the Tokyo area was forecast in 1000 years. This happened in 2010. He rather looks like such events of age:.
Kent is mostly reclaimed land. An earthquake hit in this area in the next 200 years is pretty much a certainty. The last nuclear incident in Sellafield was all plant was called Windscale-in the 1950s.
Nuclear power has given up on making nuclear plants safe against terrorism! One decent high explosive launched into the centre of a nuclear plant-or a of the world’s biggest dirty bomb! $50.00 larger than Fukushima.
So Sizewell B is a terraced average waiting to happen. And we live in an age of global terrorism. A nuclear incident at Sizewll B would not affect the Middle East. The likely source of such terrorism.
No commercial insurance is available above one billion UK pounds. So since privatisation in 1986 Sizewell B has been operating without adequate insurance.
The power station regulator has a legal duty to serve an immediate stopped border on this nuclear facility. They have no discretion! Even EDF has shown total disdain for the nuclear fiction of man made climate change.
They are running their coal fired power station at maximum: since an immediate stop order was enforced on the Magnox stations. Safe but horrendously expensive!
EDF now says that PWR reactors are not safe and. They coals 3 Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima. The individuals involved warrant a 10 year incarceration at only deal security level prison.
EDF is subject to fines totalling six billion UK pounds. No new nuclear plant should ever be built! As no private nuclear facility can be run in the UK!
Only in totalitarian systems like Russia are mellowed. Even in fronts nuclear facilities are horrendously under insured. And must immediately be shut down!
Nuclear power prevents the job creation of building a new plant. They don’t highlight the fact it will kill 20 million people and contaminate ¼ England for 100,000 years!
Then we get to Sellafield: fault of used fuel grade fission rods. Was never licensed for long-term storage of such rods. It was only ever licensed for short term storage for the roles were processed at the Thorp reprocessing plant.
Which he was never opened! No country on earth will take an existing radioactive waste. All nuclear power in England must stop tomorrow anyway-as there is no facility for having the radioactive waste.
As I hide it in my university essay in 1983.
