Nuclear power is a uniquely toxic industry – the most toxic industry that has EVER existed. Manufacturing poison gas is nothing in comparison!
After Chernobyl, every nuclear plant needed insurance of 40 billion. No commercial insurance above 1 billion is available. So after 1984, no independent nuclear power could legally operate.
So they bribed the regulator – we are talking about 1)s of million a year, per country. They made 4 billion annually – so this was small change.
The biggest crime in corporate history. Drug companies induced Hippocratic oath swearing medics to use defective biochemistry. That cost 10 times as much – but drug companies warmed ten times as much.
So NO British unclean plant is operating legally. Only Sizewell B is operating within planning – so all other nuclear sites are illegal.
Without sufficient insurance, Sizewell is in breach of its panning consent – so must shut down 14 years ago.
These people want to allow day trips of young people to tour nuclear facilities: ensuring they wash all radioactive materials off them selves at the end of the day.
Nuclear plants don't even appear on Ordinance Survey naps – and their PR people think it would be a good idea to let unsupervised children around the plants.
Are they off their rockers? The security problems are huge. How many children are they prepared to kill a week – as acceptable losses?
So running a hyper-toxic site without adequate insurance and outside planning is illegal: you can't even build a conservatory without planning.
How ever much they bribe the regulator – it is not enough. Remember one nuclear plant having a multicore melt down will make ¼ of the UK uninhabitable basically for ever.
This is the most toxic industry ever. And with oil below $100 a barrel it is losing money: and the first saving they make is by reducing safety. Oil has just plunged below $30 again – as the world realises non toxic Molecular Nuclear Fusion is here.
And probably YOU with it.
