How Nuclear Power
Steals £Trillions from Sensible Energy Technologies
The French “safe
reactor” experiment at Olkiluoto, Finland, echoes the nuclear
industry’s record of abject failure.
“The Finnish Folly” has been a total disaster for all
concerned. Initially backed by the
hapless French taxpayer through French
government loan guarantees, Areva, the French government-owned
nuclear giant, began construction in 2005 on what was supposed to be
the world’s safest nuclear power station.
Countless design flaws have made the
“safe reactor” a sick joke. Google
In May 2007 Areva guaranteed a "final cost of
€2.5" for the "safe reactor". Areva
later admitted the project is four years behind schedule and presently
€5 Billion over the
guaranteed final cost of
government ministers - now being accused of accepting bribes from
the nuclear industry - could have spent the original
€2.5 Billion on developing wind and solar energy. Those projects
would now be up and running - and earning money.
Unlike wind power or
solar power the costs of nuclear power go up over time rather than
down. Despite the fact that French reactors are all of similar design, the cost of
building their last reactor, in 1998, was 350% higher than forecast
says Steve Thomas, professor of energy policy at the University of
Greenwich in the U.K. The so-called “safe reactor” project will make
the 1998 350% hike look small in comparison.

The French government habitually adjust facts and figures to
favour nuclear power. The industry gets direct and undeclared
indirect subsidies, government loans and loan guarantees, on
anything they want.
The myth that France gets 70-80 percent of its power from 58
reactors is often cited as the model for other countries. But the
entire French nuclear industry is 85 percent owned by the
government, who buy in green electricity from Germany, says Mycle
Schneider, a Paris-based energy and nuclear policy analyst.
French nuclear power
has a long history of covering-up
radioactive leaks. Only last year it became known that a nuclear
waste dump in the Champaign Region has been leaking its poison, into
the water table, for at least three years. Cover-ups and
cost-overruns continue unabated with unashamed government collusion.
Another taxpayer funded “safe reactor” under construction In
Flamanville, France, is falling years behind schedule and billions
Areva deny the “safe reactor” project could eventually
be cancelled. They do however admit French and Finnish taxpayers
will pay the final cost - whatever that maybe.
Professor of Economics Paul Joskow, at the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology stated., “A number of U.S. companies have looked with
trepidation on the French project and the magnitude of the
money wasted so far.”
Building nuclear reactors is as
much a waste of time and money now - as
it was in the 1970's. When the accident, in a brand new reactor, at
Three Mile Island, led to the cancellation of 42 proposed new reactors across the USA.
The atrocious Bush administration made it possible for Florida and Georgia
to raise electricity rates
so that consumers will foot the bill for new nuclear
reactors, before construction even begins!
However; the rollout of
“one-hundred new nuclear reactors” announced by President George W. Bush was
nothing more than a lunatic’s pipe dream.
Nuclear power can not reduce greenhouse gases. Mining and processing
the uranium and then looking after the nuclear waste, for the next
two thousand years, will produce more carbon emissions than any
other type of power station.
Nuclear power stations are the most expensive on earth.

Asked how many new Chernobyl's Her Majesty intends to build in Britain?
Her Majesty's Minister for Energy, Mike O'Brien, replied.
"It will be for the [foreign] energy companies to determine how many.
There should be no cap on the amount of new nuclear build. We are taking
active steps to facilitate rapid early deployment of new nuclear build
in the UK. This is demonstrated by events such as EDF's recent purchase
of British Energy, and by the development of Joint ventures by RWE and
E.ON, and Iberdrola, GDF Suez and SSE to participate in the development
of new nuclear power stations."

The Russian forestry agency, which named areas where forest fires would
cause massive radiation clouds, has had its website wiped by
the Kremlin. The agency complained. 'The destruction of vital information concerning public safety" is
standard practice in the nuclear industry'.

Each pool contains enough poison to kill everyone in Britain. Anyone wanting to build any more of these Targets of Mass Destruction can only be considered educationally sub normal
(ESN). A small nuclear device triggered at a British Nuclear power station would see the £ wiped off international money markets. Not that that would worry the inbred
British Establishment who have always kept their ill-gotten gains in gold offshore.
