Dr Helen Caldicott - Fukushima Nuclear Disaster

robmij
This video is a short talk by Dr Helen Caldicott, who is a very well respected anti-nuclear advocate. According to her own website, she has devoted over 35 years to an international campaign to educate the public about nuclear hazards and the changes required in human behavior to stop environmental destruction.

The video can be seen at this link,

From Nuclear to Renewable

Javier Mosqueda
Awareness seems to be a difficult thing, as seen in the hard work of Dr. Helen Caldicott.

In separate talks with Nigel Farage and with Lord Christopher Monckton, both from the UKIP in Britain, they let me see their favourable view over Nuclear Power
. Strange how some people dismiss risks.  Ok, the Planet Earth is full of radiation some 20 km deep and -of course- further down.

Depths of 10km already provide with 175 degrees Celsius, making the use of nuclear power unnecessary, because at those temperatures geothermal power is already obtained.

Geothermal gradient is the rate of increasing temperature with respect to increasing depth in the Earth's interior. Away from tectonic plate boundaries, it is 25–30°C per km of depth in most of the world.[1]

Temperature within the Earth increases with depth. Highly viscous or partially molten rock at temperatures between 650 to 1,200 °C (1,202 to 2,192 °F) is postulated to exist everywhere beneath the Earth's surface at depths of 50 to 60 miles (80 to 100 kilometers)[citation needed], and the temperature at the Earth's center, nearly 4,000 miles (6,400 km) deep, is estimated to be 5650 ± 600 kelvins.[6][7] The heat content of the earth is 1031 joules.[1]

Those famous salt mines in north of Germany are not deep enough increasing the probabilities or risks of leaks.

History

After closure of the salt mining activities Bartensleben was designated as a repository for radioactive waste by the former government of East Germany. Today, the shaft is operated by the "Deutsche Gesellschaft zum Bau und Betrieb von Endlagern für Abfallstoffe mbH (DBE)" under supervision of the Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz.

Potash

The salt mining industry in this region is over a century-old, and started with the first potash mining shaft "Marie" in 1897. Shaft "Bartensleben" started between 1910–1912 and is of current depth 525 m. The mine levels in shaft "Bartensleben" are interconnected with shaft "Marie" at depths 326 ,426, 466 and 506 m. The main mine structure is between 320 and 630m depth.

Weapon production and forced labor

During the Third Reich, from February 1944 until April 1945, forced laborers and concentration camp prisoners from Ravensbrueck, and Buchenwald were employed. From August 1944, 2,500 German, Soviet, Polish, Hungarian and French female concentration camp prisoners, also from the Neuengamme camp, were moved to the Beendorf camp. Initially this was a sub camp of Buchenwald and latterly of the Neuengamme camp. They worked in the salt mine.
They were forced to work in the underground tunnels of more than 400 meters depth on the production of components for the jet aircraft Me 262 and rockets, including V1 and V2.The components included parts for guidance systems. For secrecy the underground shafts "Marie" at Beendorf and "Bartensleben" in Morsleben were named "bulldog" and "polecat".

from Wikipedia

These mines were recently receiving French waste while the whole issue was the reason for constant protests of people blocking the railway.

It is comfortable in terms of conflict creation, to deal with non renewables, though renewables are plentiful in terms of power with zero side effects.  Even at the present world power consuption of of 15 Terawatts (equivalent to 11 Horse Power day and night per family average!, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_energy_consumption), it just means AS GOOD JOBS AS WE WANT!!

Re: From Nuclear to Renewable

Interesting information and good points raised. Politicians and doctors would definitely view nuclear systems from different perspectives.

What's concerning from the video, are Caldicott's comments regarding mentalities behind a technology that could be used with pathological intentions. Same concerns raised by Lobaczewski.
