Climate Change

         Top

 


Nuclear power plants cause a climate change too.


Too much CO
2 leads to climate collapse, a radioactive contaminated climate doesn't allow life.


Western Europe has the worldwide highest risk of radioactive contamination caused by major reactor accidents, Max-Planck-Institut, 22.5.2012 and Südwestdeutschland am meisten gefährdet, Franz Alt, 27.5.2012

UN-Resolution «Climate Change by Radioactivity»
 

The facts are obvious, the interpretations compelling.  «Climate Change by CO2» can not be denied any more.  It produces the effects of climate warming caused by the release of greenhouse gases. Consistent action will hopefully reduce these greenhouse gases in time.1)  

In contrast «Climate Change by Radioactivity» designates a climate change, which is caused through artificially produced radioactivity.  Both can reach terrible extents and one may not be used to discount the other.

But while the whole world discusses
«Climate Change by CO
2», the nuclear industry and supporting organisations promote the alleged “climate friendly, CO2-free” nuclear energy as a solution to climate change.  However it is not important whether nuclear energy is CO2-free or not.  Nuclear power plants produce large quantities of radioactivity and cause by themselves a dangerous «Climate Change by Radioactivity», because in a climate contaminated by radioactivity no life is possible.2)

Order of magnitude

      Top

 

Prof. Dr. Richard L. Garwin (nuclear physicist) 3), 4)

 

The «Climate Change by Radioactivity» within the nuclear reactors operated world-wide corresponds to radioactivity in an order of magnitude equivalent to one Million Hiroshima nuclear bombs (the production of two years).

Taking into account that the nuclear power plants are operated since decades, this produced «Climate Change by Radioactivity» adds up to the equivalent of a multiple of one Million Hiroshima nuclear bombs.

 

The nuclear energy produced in a nuclear power plant is strictly speaking a by-product, since in the reactor only 0.1% of the fuel is converted into energy, thus 99.9% remains as radioactive waste.3)

The produced radioactivity can be set free by technical or human failure, terrorist attacks, natural catastrophes or gradually in so-called “save storage locations” due to geological changes and/or by the run of the time.

In addition there is the risk of abuse:  «The spent fuel from nuclear plants contains enough plutonium to fabricate about 30 nuclear weapons from a single year of operation of each power reactor.»  Therefore each nuclear power plant can be abused in order to enable the production of nuclear weapons.4)

Already in April 2001 the US nuclear physicist Richard L. Garwin explained the quantity of radioactivity in a nuclear power plant at the Nuclear Control Institute in Washington:  «Since a reactor in one day produces as much radioactivity as a 50-kt nuclear explosion, and fuel in a reactor has typically been there for an average of two years, a typical nuclear reactor has in its core the long-lived radioisotopes from 30 megatons of fission.» 5)


The Hiroshima nuclear bomb corresponded to a 12.5 kt nuclear explosion.6)  Thus, an average nuclear power plant produces a daily quantity of radioactivity equivalent to four Hiroshima nuclear bombs, which each year adds up to radioactivity in the order of magnitude of 1460 Hiroshima nuclear bombs.  In a nuclear reactor even radioactivity exists in the order of magnitude of 2920 Hiroshima nuclear bombs (the production of two years).  The five Swiss nuclear power plants alone contain radioactivity in an order of magnitude of approximately 10’000 Hiroshima nuclear bombs!

The roughly 440 nuclear power plants world-wide in operation for decades, contain radioactivity in an order of magnitude of about one million Hiroshima nuclear bombs (the production of two years).
 But they generate only 3.3% of the global energy supply. Still some countries are building additional nuclear power plants.7)

Effects

      Top

 

«What do you prefer: To save energy and use solar power, resulting in fewer cancer patients as well as genetic disorders, or to use nuclear power?»

(Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Karl Bechert, nuclear physicist)
7)

 


«The quantity of radioactivity, which is present in a reactor, is larger than the quantity of radioactivity spread by a nuclear bomb - significantly larger.»

(Prof. Dr. C. F. von Weizsäcker, nuclear physicist)
7)

This artificially produced radioactivity - this «Climate Change by Radioactivity» – radiates from the human perspective for eternal times and cannot be destroyed.  Already for a long time this «Climate Change by Radioactivity» has developed for a long time;  and must urgently be brought to the forefront of the international agenda and gain global awareness with the same priority as «Climate Change by CO2».

Artificially produced radioactivity is probably the most hostile climate of all.  The adverse health effects and the difference between artificially produced and naturally occurring radioactivity are comprehensibly summarised in the «Medical memorandum for the industrial use of nuclear energy» by Dr. med. Max Otto Bruker.8)

The research work of Dr. Rosalie Bertell (alternative Nobel Prize 1986) and the study «ECRR 2003 - Recommendations of the European Committee on Radiation Risk» (Brussels 2003) analyse the effects of radioactive low dose radiation during normal operation of nuclear power plants. 9)

And in the recently published article «Murderous Uranium» the journalist and author Claus Biegert describes the fate of many thousand humans in the contaminated uranium extraction areas.10)

With a disaster in the context of «Climate Change by CO2», the situation can often be helped directly thereafterHumans can go there and save what can be saved and begin reconstruction, e.g. as with the hurricane «Katrina» in New Orleans.  With a disaster in the context of «Climate Change by Radioactivity» this is not possible, as the area is no longer habitable for indefinite times.  If in New Orleans an accident would have set free the radioactivity from a nuclear power plant due to technical-human failure or due to the consequences of the hurricane «Katrina», then not even a thought for reconstruction would exist.

US nuclear physicist Richard L. Garwin summarises: «Reactor accidents... too horrible to think about.»11)

As of today there exist no safe storage locations for nuclear waste, nor will that ever be the case, since the legislators in different countries require a security guarantee of one million years for final nuclear waste disposal (cf. USA and Germany).  One does not have to be an engineer, in order to recognise that such a security guarantee is never possible and would require not calculable, practically infinite costs.12)

Whoever promotes nuclear energy as sustainable, clean & green, or as a solution to climate change, falsely abuses the attributes of renewable energies and suppresses the fact that radioactivity is produced in nuclear power plants.

On a legal level also questions of international law and human rights arise apart from the observance of constitutional principles for the preservation of the quality of life as well as the means of livelihood.13)

Solution

      Top

 

UN-Resolution
«Climate Change by Radioactivity»

The «Climate Change by Radioactivity» should be addressed immediately by the General Assembly of the United Nations.14)

The basis of an effective global solution could be a UN-Resolution, which obligates the governments:

(a) to inform their population about the «Climate Change by Radioactivity»;

(b) to guarantee that the purchase of Natural Power (electricity generated from renewable energies) will not cause extra costs;

(c) to assure that suitable economic conditions for investments in renewable energies are guaranteed on a long-term basis;

(d) to renounce bringing new nuclear power plants into operation;

(e) to support a world-wide prohibition of marketing and building new nuclear power plants;

(f) to shut down existing nuclear power plants as soon as possible; as well as

(g) to store and permanently supervise the radioactive wastes already existing as securely as possible.

Change your electricity!!
 
Order at your electricity supplier a natural power / green energy, which also includes a portion of solar power...

Nuclear more expensive than Natural Power - Change the supplier, 17.1.2013

The population can support this global solution actively, if each household orders 100% Natural Power from renewable energies (sun, wind, water, biomass, geothermal) from its electricity supplier.  A rising demand for Natural Power will lead to the necessary investments for building-up the required supply of Natural Power.  Each order of Natural Power supports the build-up of a power supply with 100% renewable energy and is future-oriented climate protection.15)

Just as it is common knowledge today that for example cars, oil heatings and coal-fired power stations cause «Climate Change by CO
2», we must become conscious that all electrical devices (i.e. world-wide millions of light and energy-saving lamps, electric irons and efficient refrigerators, computers and telephones), which are not yet operated with 100% Natural Power, cause «Climate Change by Radioactivity» by using nuclear power.

Both, «Climate Change by Radioactivity» and «Climate Change by CO2»
, must be solved all-out and be terminated as far as possible.  The main difference is that nuclear energy and the thereby artificially produced radioactivity can and must be terminated completely or by 100%.  On the other hand the consumption of fossil energies only has to be (and can be) replaced partially, i.e. up to 80% 16), by renewable energies, in order to re-establish the natural balance of greenhouse gases.  Then again CO2 can be sufficiently absorbed and converted into biomass through natural processes of plants (i.e. photosynthesis).

Nuclear power plants produce radioactive ...

... much radioactivity!

Once we are aware of these facts, it should be possible to stop the nuclear debate.

Core question and core problem

The end of the nuclear debate 20)

 
27.1.2011

 
The publications and discussions on the voting regarding the nuclear power plant Mühleberg show that hardening of attitudes and, above all, a lack of information lead to no result (e.g. SF Rundschau on 26.1.2011 "Struggle for nuclear power - debate..."). The nuclear debate should be ended. This requires to ask the core question and to identify the core problem:

What does a nuclear power plant produce?

     1.)  Radioactivity

     2.)  Electricity 

Already in April 2001, the U.S. nuclear physicists Richard L. Garwin explained the amount of radioactivity in a nuclear power plant at the Nuclear Control Institute in Washington: «Since a reactor in one day produces as much radioactivity as a 50-kt nuclear explosion, and fuel in a reactor has typically been there for an average of two years, a typical nuclear reactor has in its core the long-lived radioisotopes from 30 megatons of fission.»21)

The Hiroshima nuclear bomb represented a 12.5 kt nuclear explosion.21) Thus, an average nuclear power plant produces a daily quantity of radioactivity equivalent to four Hiroshima nuclear bombs, which each year adds up to radioactivity in the order of magnitude of 1460 Hiroshima nuclear bombs.  In a nuclear reactor even radioactivity exists in the order of magnitude of 2920 Hiroshima nuclear bombs (the production of two years).  The five Swiss nuclear power plants alone contain radioactivity in an order of magnitude of approximately 10’000 Hiroshima nuclear bombs! US nuclear physicist Richard L. Garwin summarises: «Reactor accidents... too horrible to think about.»21)

Given these facts, the produced electricity is irrelevant and nuclear power as a matter of principle is not an option. Once we are aware of these facts, it should be possible to stop the nuclear debate. Only then we will be able to objectively and constructively discuss the best solution for a future-oriented supply of energy and to implement it without further delay.22)

My deep personal sympathy goes in particular to the Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan, who must now constantly inform the public about the nuclear disaster on TV.

As well as 100 other political decision makers in over 30 countries the Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan in September 2009 received a registered letter with the SolarPeace Press Release, "Climate Change by Radioactivity" (Naoto Kan was then Deputy Prime Minister & Minister of State).31)

Corresponding letters were sent simultaneously to the then Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama and the then Minister of Foreign Affairs Katsuya Okada, Minister of the Environment Sakihito Ozawa and Minister of Education Tatsuo Kawabata. Not only in Japan, the

«We have clear ideas about how the energy system of the future works:

Europe must get out of nuclear. We need more renewables and energy efficiency.»

Austrian Minister of the Environment Niki Berlakovich 40)

 

 

Change your electricity!!

Order at your electricity supplier a natural power / green energy, which also includes a portion of solar power...

Nuclear more expensive than Natural Power - Change the supplier, 17.1.2013

 

Austria calls for

"Rethinking international" with action plan "Get out of nuclear"
 

20.4.2011

An important first step towards a binding «UN Resolution on Security and Energy», was initiated by the Austrian Federal Government.

The Austrian Federal Government decided on 22.3.2011 the Action Plan «International rethinking of nuclear power to renewable energy and energy efficiency».40)

The significance of this decision and the goal of a binding «UN Resolution on Security and Energy» is shown, for example in the U.S., where a new type of reactor is nearing approval.41)

The contents of the Action Plan was summarized by the Federal Chancellery of Austria towards SolarPeace.org:42)

«The disaster in Japan demonstrated in a dramatic and tragic way that this [nuclear energy] is neither a sustainable form of energy supply nor is it a viable option for climate protection.

Against this background, on 22.3.2011 the Austrian Federal Government adopted the Action Plan "International rethinking of nuclear power to renewable energy and energy efficiency". It explains that the federal government campaigns against the construction of new nuclear power plants and for the strengthening of nuclear safety and the elimination of subsidies and other benefits for the nuclear industry. It will pursue these goals in all relevant bodies also within the framework of the United Nations.

The Lord Chancellor has argued this position at the European Council in late March 2011 and led for that purpose intense discussions with the other Heads of State and Governments. To ensure in the meantime the highest safety standards of nuclear facilities, the European Commission will make proposals on the scope and nature of security checks (stress tests), wich are performed subsequently by independent national authorities. The results will be discussed later this year by the European Council and communicated to the public.» 42)

Survey shows:  Swiss nuclear power plants don't know what they are doing!

How much radioactivity do the Swiss nuclear power plants produce?


1.9.2011

Print version for reading and passing on ... (2 pages)


Following the nuclear disaster in Fukushima/Japan all Swiss nuclear power plants and the ENSI were asked for information about the daily amount of radioactivity produced and the total existent radioactivity levels in each of the respective nuclear power plants. At the same time the nuclear power plants and the ENSI were asked to disclose these levels of radioactivity in comparison with the radioactivity released by the Hiroshima nuclear bomb. The resulting correspondence (see sources) is impressive. Read...
  

Despite registered letters, the nuclear power plant Leibstadt did not reply to the first request. The response from the nuclear power plants Beznau (AXPO), Mühleberg (BKW) and Gösgen (ALPIQ) were evasive and failed to address the questions. They only referred to internet sites and publications by the Federal Office for Energy (BFE), the Federal Office of Public Health (BAG), the National Emergency Operations Centre (NAZ) and the Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate (ENSI). All nuclear power plants were contacted again. Read...

Fukushima - Nuclear explosion by Super-GAU?

«Fukushima - The truth behind the Super-GAU» (ARTE, 6.3.2012)


11.3.2012, updated 16.7.2016

Summary for reading, printing, passing on ... (2 pages)


The documentation «Fukushima - The truth behind the Super-GAU» (original title: «Fukushima - Die Wahrheit hinter dem Super-GAU»), broadcasted on 6.3.2012 by ARTE, provides new information regarding the critical comparison of nuclear power plants and nuclear bombs.

 

SolarPeace.org summarised the essential statements of this documentation for the Fukushima anniversary.60)
 

  •  Introduction
  •  The explosion in the non-operating reactor block 4
  •  The explosion in reactor block 3
  •  The quantity of released radioactivity
  •  Conclusion for Switzerland and Europe

 

Read the summary now ... (2 pages)

 


The problem in Fukushima was finally caused by a loss of power supply. «A total loss of power supply was unimaginable. We have never assumed that, also for pressurised water reactors.» (Emmerich Seidelberger, Nuclear engineer, Austria)60)

 

Since SolarPeace.org published the quantity of radioactivity produced in nuclear power plants («An average nuclear power plant produces a daily quantity of radioactivity equivalent to four Hiroshima nuclear bombs»), it has been criticized repeatedly sweeping and regardless of the source data, that nuclear power plants could not be compared with nuclear bombs. However these critics were never scientifically, as on SolarPeace.org the quantity of produced radioactivity and not the explosive force is being compared.62) 

  

The documentation «Fukushima - The truth behind the Super-GAU» extents this comparison significantly (regarding the explosion in Fukushima block 3 it is explained: «It is similar to a nuclear bomb, but not quite as severe.»).60)

Nuclear Exit ...

                Energy Transition ...

                                Hopp Schwiiz!  1, 2, ...70)


20.3.2012

«I want to make it my job to think about the safety of the people.» says Rikku, a 10 year old boy from the city of Tomioka in middle of the prohibited area around Fukushima, at the end of the report SF DOK «Childs of the tsunami - Life after the nuclear catastrophy».73)

 

Rikku turns unconsciously to our politicians, investors and electricity consumers. Because of the nuclear meltdown was not caused by the tsunami, but finally by power failure - without electricity, no cooling! Power failures can occur also here at any time and with a variety of reasons (including earthquakes). Without excess solar and wind power from Germany it would have become scarce during the cold days of February 2012.71) and 60)

 

Please act on behalf of our children, but also for Rikku and all the others in Japan!

 

Please do not wait any longer for the energy transition. You can, you should, you wanted but for a long time yourself...

1.  Order natural power...

Of course, a future oriented natural energy product. Hydroelectric power is not enough to cover the Swiss electricity demand. Order from your electricity supplier a natural power product that also contains a proportion of solar power (such an electricity mix will most likely contain beside hydro power also other new renewable energies, such as wind power and biomass). Solar power has the largest build-up potential in Switzerland. As long as a single tile is sleeping useless in the sun, we have not exploited this potential. Do you already have natural power? Then talk to friends and neighbours. Any additional demand generates further supply!72)

2.  Become a solar power producer...

If you don't own a house, you can participate in a community facility. For example the ADEV Solarstrom AG operates since 1988 solar power installations with citizen participation. The current capital raise is used for new solar systems only (subscription period to 30 March 2012, info at ADEV.ch). A second example is the society Solarspar, which operates solar power installations with its member's loans. If you own a home, you can install your own solar system. In both cases, you can benefit from the Swiss KEV (cost-covering feed-in-rates).

 

 

If you are still not fully aware of the importance of these simple steps, please watch the report SF DOK «Childs of the tsunami - Life after the nuclear catastrophy» and read «Fukushima - Nuclear explosion by Super-GAU?».73)

Please tell others ...

P.S. About 3000 persons, politicians and decision makers world-wide receive the SolarPeace-Information. All emails and letters are created with so-called 'Natural Power', clean electricity generated with 100% renewable energies (sun, water, wind, biomass or geothermal). Increasing demand creates investments and the necessary supply. Each order for 'Natural Power' supports the build-up of a future-oriented energy supply and is an effective contribution to climate protection.

Please pass these information over to other interested persons.

Cordial thanks!
