Re: Remembering Chernobyl.

There is no need for nuclear in this day and age. Alternatives coming on a storm. The cost of decommissioning these places is always underestimated. No-one is interested at the end of their life.

Re: Remembering Chernobyl.

A story of Chornobyl plant liquidator... [VIDEO]

HBO’s Chornobyl became the most successful series according to the IMDb portal ratings. The authors spent several years creating it. They spoke with eyewitnesses and perhaps for the first time showed exactly how the plant workers acted immediately after the reactor exploded. Even for Ukrainians who seemed to have heard and seen enough stories about Chornobyl, the series became a surprise. In particular, it turned out that two of the three liquidators-divers – Bespalov and Ananenko (Baranov died) – survived. They live on Kyiv’s left bank where they received apartments after evacuation. Liudmyla Ignatenko, the wife of a fireman, is also alive.

Perhaps this story will shed some light on the reason.
How sick are some people?

Re: Remembering Chernobyl.

In Ukraine, those who witnessed the 1986 nuclear disaster say the HBO miniseries got everything right—except the people. Still, it’s closer to the truth than the Kremlin version.

IEV—The Chernobyl Museum here in Ukraine’s capital was unusually crowded for a working day.

Groups of Ukrainian and foreign visitors were passing from room to room, studying photographs and documents at the exhibition devoted to the nuclear catastrophe of 1986. Two local visitors asked their guide what had caused the explosion of the reactor at the nuclear power station: Who was to blame for the deaths of more than 4,000 people? The museum’s guide, a middle-age lady, responded to the Russian-speakers in Ukrainian: “Soviet authorities. The system is to blame.”

It’s been crucial for most Ukrainian historians of the Chernobyl disaster not to blame anybody but the communist state machine, whose mismanagement led to the biggest catastrophe in the history of the “peaceful atom.”

The Kremlin reportedly is pushing its own film about the event, blaming the CIA, which is only to be expected…

It's the uranium byproducts that are desirable for weaponry. I remember the Queen opening UK's first nuclear power station at Calder Hall in the 50's, ostensibly for home energy but in truth to make UK independent of US nukes.
Thorium is a much safer alternative but holds no charm for warmongers.

Now you are showing your age, And after each leakage they changed the name. How many have we had now? Çoktane

Re: Remembering Chernobyl.

I suppose it doesn't just happen in some old Soviet state...... back in 1999 Japan had two at Tokaimura nuclear the "Dōnen accident" then in 2011 "The Fukushima disaster the most significant nuclear incident since the Chernobyl disaster and the only other disaster to be given Level 7 event classification on the International Nuclear event scale". ...... Japanese authorities later admitted to lax standards and poor oversight of the plant and inefficient emergency plan The investigation found apart from corruption ,and nepotism in the build and lax management The Japanese Nuclear Org ignored earthquake and tsunami studies ,


Some countries seem never to learn in April this year the Russians launched (below) To be followed by China constructing a similar floating power station. It plans to place nearly two dozen in the South China Sea where Beijing is expanding its military presence. ..

World's only floating nuclear power station dubbed 'Chernobyl on ice' launched by Russia

Akademik Lomonosov poses ‘shockingly obvious threat’ to environment, campaigners claim


A floating nuclear power plant that environmental campaigners have dubbed “Chernobyl on ice” is ready to begin supplying electricity, Russia has announced.

Re: Remembering Chernobyl.

Or the good old USA......

How odd that this disaster is rarely remarked upon

The Three Mile Island accident was the partial meltdown of reactor number 2 of Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station (TMI-2) in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, near Harrisburg and subsequent radiation leak that occurred on March 28, 1979. It was the most significant accident in U.S. commercial nuclear power plant history. The incident was rated a five on the seven-point International Nuclear Event Scale: Accident with wider consequences.

Re: Remembering Chernobyl.

I'm going to show my age again and remind everyone of the British nuclear disaster at Windscale (now renamed Sellafield) in 1957.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigationJump to search
Windscale fire
Storm Clouds over Sellafield - geograph.org.uk - 330062.jpg
The Windscale Piles (centre and right) in 1985
Date 10 October 1957
Location Windscale, Seascale, Cumbria (now Sellafield)
Coordinates 54.4243°N 3.4982°WCoordinates: 54.4243°N 3.4982°W
Outcome INES Level 5 (accident with wider consequences)
Non-fatal injuries Estimated 240 additional cases of thyroid cancer
The Windscale fire of 10 October 1957 was the worst nuclear accident in Great Britain's history, ranked in severity at level 5 out of a possible 7 on the International Nuclear Event Scale.[1] The fire took place in Unit 1 of the two-pile Windscale facility on the northwest coast of England in Cumberland (now Sellafield, Cumbria). The two graphite-moderated reactors, referred to at the time as "piles", had been built as part of the British post-war atomic bomb project. Windscale Pile No. 1 was operational in October 1950 followed by Pile No. 2 in June 1951.[2]

The fire burned for three days and there was a release of radioactive contamination that spread across the UK and Europe.[3] Of particular concern at the time was the radioactive isotope iodine-131, which may lead to cancer of the thyroid, and it has been estimated that the incident caused 240 additional cancer cases.[3] No one was evacuated from the surrounding area, but there was a worry that milk might be dangerously contaminated. Milk from about 500 square kilometres (190 sq mi) of nearby countryside was diluted and destroyed for about a month. A 2010 study of workers involved in the cleanup of the accident found no significant long term health effects from their involvement.[4][5]
