400,000 Tons Of High Level Nuclear Waste To Be Generated By Nuclear Plants Between 2013 And 2030, With NO Solution For Disposal

INTRODUCTION


Every nuclear reactor produces highly radioactive and very 'hot' nuclear waste each year. There are 400 nuclear power plants globally producing this very volatile, toxic, potentially global life extinction event producing nuclear waste full time, for their entire operating life. There is no answer about how or where to safely store this high level, very radioactive, and very dangerous nuclear waste, so it is being stored on site, in spent fuel pools, which have almost zero protection, and are open to the air. This nuclear waste is building up, in bigger and bigger piles. Picture a house filling up to the ceiling with radioactive trash and you start getting the idea of how bad this problem is becoming. 

Why is the nuclear industry producing nuclear garbage with no answer about how to safely dispose of it and/or guard it, free from proliferation and terrorist threats? This highly dangerous nuclear garbage must be guarded for millions of years. Why does the industry keeping making this toxic garbage, when there is no solution for it?

DEPLETED URANIUM IS NUCLEAR WASTE FROM NUCLEAR POWER PLANT FUEL PRODUCTION; IT IS BEING SPREAD ALL AROUND THE WORLD BY MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX, INCLUDING INSIDE CITIES

DU BULLETS, BOMBS, AND MISSILES ARE PART OF SOLUTION FOR 'DUMPING' OF NUCLEAR WASTE


Depleted uranium is one of those radioactive garbage leftovers. There are thousands of tons of this stuff at just one location, and there are many of these 'storage sites' for DU all over the world. One of the ways they found to get rid of it and make a profit, is to sell it to the military, and then the military throws it all around the world in the form of DU dust, which equals a low level constant nuclear war. 

Another way that the nuclear industry makes money off of their radioactive garbage is to sell it to the medical industry, which has found some interesting and very profitable uses for radioactive waste products. After nuclear fuel is burned, what is left is spent fuel, very highly radioactive and toxic garbage with no solution as to how to dispose of it. But this is what is used by the military and medical industry, all with huge amounts of money behind them. 

Consider this; why is a lethal dose of radiation good for you? Why is a lethal dose of chemicals good for you? Why is a combination of the two together any better than either one alone? The theory is that radiation and chemicals are good for you, as in the hormesis theory, but this theory has been disproven. Wouldn't you agree that if a theory is very profitable, it would be VERY hard, almost impossible even, to convince anyone in that particular industry to look at the 'real' low cost or free solutions, which have none of the negative side effects and/or consequences, especially if they threaten those huge profits?


SPENT FUEL POOLS ARE A GLOBAL LIFE EXTINCTION HAZARD; EACH ONE EQUALS A GLOBAL NUCLEAR WAR IN TERMS OF RADIATION INSIDE OF THEM THAT COULD BE UNLEASHED ON WORLD


Unless the spent fuel pools are cooled with pumps and electricity, they are so hot that the water boils off and the spent fuel then burns and melts down, causing a nuclear mega disaster because it is not inside of any containment.


MOX fuel in spent fuel pools is that much more dangerous when compared to plain uranium fuel, as Fukushima proved. Both MOX fuel containing spent fuel pools burned, at least one melted out, and the #3 reactor and/or spent fuel pool blew up at Fukushima, while the others that did not have this new MOX fuel did not do this. 



These spent fuel pools are also a terrorist threat, because all the terrorists have to do to destroy a whole country and possibly the world, is to empty a spent fuel pool of water which is full of hot fuel rods fresh out of a nuclear reactor, and that is not hard to do. 

400,000 TONS TOTAL OF HIGH LEVEL RADIATION SPENT FUEL TO BE PRODUCED GLOBALLY BY 2030, MUCH MORE IF MANY NEW REACTORS ARE GOING TO BE BUILT

What the nuclear industry has found as a short term solution is to send their spent fuel to reprocessing plants. The reprocessing plants create 'new' reprocessed fuel for the nuclear plants, send it back to them, to be 'burned' again and again. How much is being produced? 

According to World Nuclear.org; between 2013 and 2030, approximately 400,000 TONS of spent fuel is going to be generated globally. 60,000 TONS of that is going to be produced within the US, and 69,000 TONS is going to be produced inside Europe. 


PLANS FOR REPROCESSING OF NUCLEAR FUEL


Reprocessing Facility               Tons Of Spent Fuel Reprocessed Per Year

1. LWR fuel France, La Hague                    1700 
2. UK, Sellafield (THORP)                           900 
3. Russia, Ozersk (Mayak)                           400 
4. Japan (Rokkasho)                                    800* start up planned in 2014
In December 2013 JNFL announced the plant would be ready for operation in October 2014.[4]

Total LWR (approx)                                 3800
UK, Sellafield (Magnox)                           1500 
5. India (PHWR, 4 plants)                           330 
Total civil capacity                                    5630

REPROCESSING NUCLEAR FUEL IS GREENWASHING


This recycling of spent fuel from these nuclear reactor power plants sounds like the perfect solution. The only problem is that the FOUR OR FIVE reprocessing plants named above are the most toxic, the most radiation polluted places on the planet, throwing out more radiation into the environment than the TMI nuclear disaster did, EACH YEAR. Each one of the places is a nuclear accident happening constantly, times 4 or 5. No wonder the background radiation levels on the planet are increasing over time.

None of these facilities could be called a success story. All of them suffered from worker injuries, deaths, cost over runs, spills, leaks, and radioactive contamination of many miles of surrounding air, water and land, which has still not been cleaned up in the cases of those that were shut down and 'decommissioned' with taxpayer, not nuclear industry dollars.



THE AMOUNT OF NUCLEAR WASTE CREATED BY NUCLEAR INDUSTRY, ACCIDENTS, MINING, PROCESSING, WASTE DISPOSAL IS SO HUGE, IT IS INCALCULABLE



Via mon ami February 27, 2016 The Fukushima mega nuclear disaster dwarfs Chernobyl. Why? THREE reactors melted down and through at Fukushima, compared to only ONE at Chernobyl. Three or more spent fuel pools dried out, and then burned their contents at least partially, with one containing MOX fuel. None of this happened at Chernobyl. 

Basically, Fukushima is so bad, that the nuclear industry and regulators are succeeding in covering it all up, denying it happened, and denying the harm it is causing. Its so bad most people do not want to know about it. Radiation has always been that way. so we let the bastards bulldoze us..... when one considers all the radioisotope making facilities around the world, all the shit in hospitals and industry for radioactive image welding etc. that figure also does not consider bomb making. More like a few millions of tons of high level nuclear waste in 10 years.

Then there are the 10s of millions of tons of so called medium and low level nuclear waste made yearly. The only difference is that thousands of tons of high level nuclear waste like from fukushima can kill an entire ocean pretty quickly. 

The first level waste in manufacturing and refining uranium takes 10 million tons a year of uranium ore and by poducts. Chemicals and equipment and surrounding communities also become radioactive as the dust blows all over hell. The intermediate steps of purification create less direct waste but the chemicals used to process, the equipment used, protective gear, the shipping containers, peoples clothes become radioactive. 

The chemicals used for processing and purifying uranium and isotopes from nuclear plants are turned into radioactive waste. It a gift that grows itself exponentially as the processes go down the line. The reactors like Indian point also generate tritium more nuke waste. And ta think Ronald Reagan said all the radioactive waste from one reactor for one year would fit under the 4 foot by 6 foot desk he was sitting at when he made the proclamation!"

MOX PLUTONIUM FUEL IS MUCH MORE DANGEROUS AND VOLATILE THAN URANIUM FUEL

Many nuclear reactors are being switched to burn this 'new' fuel, but the public is not being told how toxic, volatile or dangerous it is. 

EXISTING PLACES WHERE NUCLEAR WASTE IS STORED TEMPORARILY HAVE TONS OF PROBLEMS, AND NUCLEAR WORKERS ARE PAYING THE PRICE WITH THEIR HEALTH AND LIVES



https://youtu.be/vLDFowvNJVU 12 min.

MANY Miles of UNLINED OPEN PITS leaking Radioactive Waste directly into the environment for YEARS with NO SOLUTION for the nuclear waste. Fruit flies and wasps actually CLOSED Hanford nuclear waste dump because they landed on radioactive waste and ended up in the lunch room! The area had to be Evacuated due to fruit flies and wasps with radioactive contaminates on their bodies. Think about it! Yes, right there in Washington- United States of America. 

Leaking constantly into the Columbia River for Now into Eternity. No place to put the waste so they just let it leach into the environment. Wow! How do you prioritize which area of the world is the worst nuclear "hot spot". Triple (Plus) nuclear meltdowns at Fukushima with HORRIBLE leaning tilting sinking buildings with TONS of spent fuel rods stored ON SITE ABOVE THE MELTED NUCLEAR CORES..., MOX fuel inside reactor 3 (exploded and melted down). 

Chernobyl was a "partial meltdown". Look at the Battle off Chernobyl. And Hanford OPEN UNLINED PITS OF RADIOACTIVE WASTE JUST SITTING THERE leaching into the Columbia River contaminating everything around it (virtually "forEver'). 

'No Consequences' At Hanford For Safety Failures; America's Nuclear Insanity http://youtu.be/txOpPumoqz4

The continuing series of workplace safety incidents at Hanford -- just last weeksix more workers received medical attention after breathing toxic vapors -- shines a light on a little-known exception for the government-owned nuclear waste site in southeastern Washington.

Unlike every other workplace in the state -- from the BP oil refinery at Cherry Point to corporate offices in downtown Seattle -- the 586 square mile Hanford Site is exempt from federal and state workplace safety oversight and enforcement.

The dangers posed by radioactive waste from the Los Alamos National Laboratory, as well as other US cities that exemplify America's nuclear waste problems.

Nuking the World One Spot at a Time!

NUCLEAR IS A DEAD END INDUSTRY, AS IT LEADS ONLY TO SUFFERING, DEATH AND GLOBAL LIFE EXTINCTION EVENTS


Jeremy Rifkin gives 5 very powerful reasons why nuclear power is dead in the video above. To have a chance of changing global warming, we would need to build an additional 1,600 nuclear plants, starting this year, and build 1,600 plants each year for the next 20 years. That is not going to happen. We don't know how to get rid of nuclear waste, there is no answer. Uranium deficits start happening with existing plants within a few years.

Recycling uranium doesn't work because it generates plutonium. We don't have the water to spare for the nuclear industry. France uses 40% of the water in France, threatening agriculture. Ocean fronted nuclear plants don't work, as Fukushima proved. Nuclear does not fit the new model of collaborative, scaled and renewable energy sources, via the third 'clean energy' industrial revolution. Bottom line, it is not a good business deal, no investor will put his money into it, as it is way too risky. So why do it?

WHAT ABOUT THE 70 NUCLEAR PLANT MELTDOWNS AND EXPLOSIONS? HOW MANY WILL BE ENOUGH TO CAUSE GLOBAL LIFE EXTINCTION? EVERY WONDER WHY THE KIDS ARE GETTING SICKER AND GETTING CANCER AT YOUNGER AND YOUNGER AGES?

Very few people know anything about nuclear power, much less the over 70 nuclear plant melt downs and explosions. The few that know anything about nuclear believe that there were only three accidents. Like everything, the nuclear industry hides 99 and reveals 1 of just about everything. 

NO ANSWER FOR NUCLEAR WASTE, SO WHY KEEP MAKING IT? 



https://youtu.be/poyayJIyKtM 1 min.

NRC MEETING; What about the nuclear waste? As there is no solution, WHY KEEP MAKING MORE OF IT? WHY NOT QUIT MAKING MORE OF IT?  

Each stage of the nuclear fuel cycle, from mining, to processing, to burning, to reprocessing and then storage is full of radiation releases, negative health effects, and dangers to not just local communities that they are located close to, but also the rest of the world. There is no answer for nuclear waste, bottom line, so why does the nuclear industry keep making more of, generating a problem that taxpayers will eventually be held hostage for, until they pay to do something with it, because the nuclear industry just washes their hands of and drops that radioactive garbage in the public's lap. Nuclear is a dead ender technology, with Armageddon at the end of that very dark alley. Why would anyone sane, choose to down that alley?

NUCLEAR GARBAGE MUST BE GUARDED FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS, THERE IS NO WAY HUMANITY CAN DO THAT; WE CANNOT EVEN FIGURE OUT THE PYRAMIDS, BUILT ONLY 5 THOUSAND YEARS AGO


Why are people paying for a few years of electricity, but they are not being told that they must then pay for millions of years to 'guard' the garbage that comes out of this nuclear fuel cycle? Who in their right mind is going to agree to pay a high price for radiation produced electricity, and then be forced to pay AGAIN, for a million years worth of storage for the garbage produced by it, via taxes? 

The pressure is growing for nuclear plants to find an answer for all of this waste, as they keep stuffing more and more spent fuel into spent fuel pools, which grow more and more dangerous over time.
