Map of the nuclear world

In development since 2011

***


Since the 1940s, insanely large amounts of man-made radioactive radiation have been released. No one can say exactly how many radioactive particles were produced and spread by the wind during the more than 2.000 atomic bomb tests. There are very different assessments from different sides about the serious accidents that have become known in nuclear reactors. Today we can only document and list the facts and figures about the remaining nuclear waste; Only our descendants, in a few hundred to a thousand years, will be able to realistically recognize and classify the true consequences of the radioactivity released.

This world map was created based on the following data: INES and the list of nuclear events. Hardly any of our planet's landmass can be seen behind the sheer mass of potential radiation sources, but just a single "click" on one of the small, colorful images and the details become very clear. Ideally, the map should be viewed "in a new window/tab" as large as possible:

National Nuclear Activities and Ambitions - Warning Sign - 'Attention, Radioactivity - Run away as fast and as far as you can. Radioactivity brings death! National nuclear activities and ambitions

(Attention, irony!)

Of course, “great statesmen” always only want the best for their people; and so these "great statesmen" have always gifted their peoples fantastic palaces and temples. The grateful subjects, for their part, always had the right and the invaluable honor of being able to build and pay for these magnificent buildings themselves.

Since the middle of the last century, "great statesmen" have been happy to give their nations a few almost super-safe nuclear facilities, which are not really safe, but are particularly expensive. The primary goal has always been to promote the super-expensive development of nuclear weapons, to prevent protests against them or at least to restore "law and order" by any means necessary afterwards.

(And that is by no means the end of: more insane than funny)

In short, the aim of nuclear research is to gain military power over as many people as possible and to put as much money as possible into one's own pockets without being noticed.

Even today, not everyone knows these facts, and to keep it that way, they are no longer even talked about. Large sections of our supposedly independent media play along with this evil game and are therefore unfortunately part of the problem.

Corruption? Here with us? 
Can't be anywhere out there in the world, but not here.

Radioactivity? From our nuclear power plants? 
Can't be, somewhere out there in Chernobyl, Harrisburg, Fukushima or somewhere else, but not here.

However, the fact is:

Corruption is omnipresent, but mostly remains invisible, just like radioactivity, which can also settle and accumulate in every living organism.

The ionizing radiation penetrates completely unnoticed; as invisible radiation from outside via the skin, as fine dust via the respiratory tract, or the radioactive particles - completely colorless, odorless and tasteless - enter the metabolism with food.

It is possible that we, our children and grandchildren will "only" be affected by ever-increasing cancer rates, but it is also possible that birth defects are occurring more frequently in newborns and impairments in apparently completely healthy people.

Radioactivity can kill generations later.

I know that doesn't sound good and you don't like me anymore because of these nasty, clear words, but I am just the bearer of the message and unfortunately the content of the message is reality...
 

"The tail wags the dog"

A minority of 9 nuclear weapons states impose their nuclear policy on all other 184 UN member states.

The reason for the creation of a nuclear industry has always been and is the desire of the "great statesmen" (horror clowns), to have the biggest club:

Nine countries are threatening the world with nuclear bombs

Russia - 6375 nuclear warheads USA - 5800 nuclear warheads China - 320 nuclear warheads France - 290 nuclear warheads Great Britain - 215 nuclear warheads
Pakistan - 160 nuclear warheads India - 150 nuclear warheads Israel - 90 nuclear warheads North Korea - 40 nuclear warheads  

The nine nuclear weapons states (Russia, USA, China, France, Great Britain, Pakistan, India, Israel and North Korea) have around 13.400 nuclear weapons. Although this is much less than at the height of the Cold War, it still represents overkill for the world. 92% of nuclear weapons belong to the USA and Russia. About 3.720 warheads are operational...

Stockholm International Peace Research Institute SIPRI

SIPRI Yearbook archives
 

The sovereign states and the IAEA

There are 193 sovereign states Members of the United Nations (UN)

There are 178 states Members of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)
 

The 12 most radioactive states are:

April 2021 - The US operates 93 commercial nuclear reactors, 2 are under construction and 40 are decommissioned ... April 2021 - Japan has 60 commercial nuclear reactors, 33 are operational, 2 are under construction and 27 are decommissioned ... April 2021 - France operates 56 commercial nuclear reactors, 1 reactor is under construction and 14 are decommissioned ...

April 2021 - Britain operates 15 commercial nuclear reactors, 2 are under construction and 30 are decommissioned ...  April 2021 - Ukraine operates 15 commercial nuclear reactors, 2 are under construction and 4 are decommissioned ...
April 2021 - Sweden operates 6 commercial nuclear reactors and 7 are decommissioned ... April 2021 - Spain operates 7 commercial nuclear reactors and 3 are decommissioned ...  ...    

 

140 of the 178 IAEA members do not operate commercially nuclear reactors and 108 IAEA members do not operate nuclear power plants Research reactors

Flag of the sovereign state of GermanyDEU - Germany

6 research reactors and 0 commercial reactors in operation

Since 15 April 2023 all commercial nuclear power plants in Germany have been shut down.

The nuclear lobby likes to work with large numbers and package them in well-sounding words. Reality is irrelevant, often only disturbs the beautiful picture and is reinterpreted or adjusted if necessary. We know this strategy from the “great statesmen”...

But while we're on the subject of big numbers

October 25, 2013 - Nuclear power subsidized with 304 billion euros

The subsidies for the race for the biggest club can be illustrated quite well using the relatively correctly documented example of “Germany”.

Until 2010 the German nuclear industry was with
204.000.000.000 Euros (€ 204 billion) subsidized from taxpayers' money.

'Cleaning up after you' will cost the taxpayer at least another
100.000.000.000 Euros (€ 100 billion)!
 

This cost accounting was updated in 2020

To date (2020), nuclear power has already cost Germany more than one trillion euros

Since the 1950s, the use of atomic energy to generate electricity in Germany has resulted in costs for society as a whole of more than one trillion euros. This is the result of a new study that the Ecological-Social Market Economy Forum (FÖS) carried out on behalf of the eco-energy cooperative Greenpeace Energy. This sum includes both state subsidies and sales prices for the electricity as well as external costs. "No other energy source has caused such high costs as the risky nuclear power, which is extremely uneconomical even after 65 years," says Sönke Tangermann, Member of the Board at Greenpeace Energy ...

*

By the way, "MIC" and the shareholders of the nuclear industry really enjoyed the party, the champagne, the dividends and the tears of joy flowed in streams, it went brilliantly well. The risk was socialized!

Conclusion: The taxpayer is paying for yet another local round!

We, who are not shareholders in the nuclear industry, have no other choice. Either we pay the billions for the dismantling of the nuclear facilities and for the safe storage of the radioactive nuclear waste until the “Day of Saints” or we risk the gradual poisoning of future generations.

Uranium mining, processing and storage of toxic and radiating materials. Uranium mining and processing

- The first uranium ore was mined in Johanngeorgenstadt in 1839.

- Up to 1939, 104 t of uranium ore had been mined in Germany.

- Between 1946 and 1995 the Wismut company mined 235 t of uranium ore (for the benefit of the Soviet nuclear industry).

Since then, the production of uranium ore has increased worldwide:

- In 2014 it was 56041 t

- In 2015 it was 60496 t

- In 2016, 62027 t

- In 2017, 69026 t of uranium were mined.

Even when mining uranium ore, deadly dangers lurk, radioactive radon gas is released and the spoil still contains up to 85 percent of the original radioactivity.

These spoil heaps are exposed to wind and weather

- the rainwater seeps through the heaps and contaminates more and more soil and the groundwater...

Due to extreme rainfall between July 9th and 12th, 1954, which led to a flood of the century, the dam of the sedimentation system broke. As a result, 50.000 m³ of tailings were washed out and largely flushed into the steering pond through which the Plohnbach flows. This pond is a small dam built in 1890. The pond was almost completely filled with the mud. The uranium quantity calculated in the tailings of the steering pond is given as 10 to 14 t.

Reactors in the construction or planning phase: where new nuclear power plants are to be built.Reactors in planning

Just a few years ago, the USA, Germany, France and Great Britain were trying to sell as many nuclear power plants as possible to anyone who couldn't run away fast enough. Then these providers slowly said goodbye to the surefire business - because there were still the annoying liability issues! China and Russia have taken on the role of selling, building and financing nuclear facilities to the world's infamous “great statesmen.” “Made in China” and “Made in Russia” guaranteed “without guarantee”. However, the signs have now changed again and nuclear plant manufacturers from the USA, France, South Korea, etc. are going “ALL IN” again.

I have been working on this world map for years and yet I keep stumbling over - for myself - 'new' information that I absolutely have to incorporate.

INES and the disturbances in nuclear facilities

If I forget or overlook something important or have made some other mistake, please share your knowledge with me and point it out to me. I will follow up every lead.

Nuclear bombs and aboveground nuclear weapons tests: Where nuclear weapons, atomic or hydrogen bombs have been detonated. Nuclear bombs and nuclear weapons tests above ground

Where nuclear weapons were detonated.

According to the official reading, 'only' two nuclear weapons were detonated, the uranium bomb 'Little boy'on August 06, 1945 over Hiroshima and the plutonium bomb'Fat man'on August 09, 1945 over Nagasaki ...
 

'Little boy'had an explosive force of 12,5 kT = 12.500 tons of TNT.

'Fat man'had an explosive force of 20 kT = 22.000 tons of TNT.

The atomic bomb explosions killed a total of around 100.000 people immediately - almost exclusively civilians and slave laborers who had been abducted by the Japanese army. By the end of 1945, another 130.000 people had died of consequential damage. Quite a few were added over the next few years ...

http://www.atomwaffena-z.info/glossar/n/n-texte/artikel/6ec52d7020/nagasaki.html

... in total were over worldwide 2050 nuclear weapons tests performed, the more than 500 attempts above ground are to be equated with Ignition of atomic bombs.

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_von_Kernwaffentests

In some of these tests, both in the USA and in the Soviet Union, soldiers were used to better assess and assess the effects of the bombs on people and material. The data on the development of the damage to health of these soldiers over the years are almost even more secret than the data on the technology of the bombs ...

Example from 1953:

Operation Upshot Knothole

The Operation Upshot Knothole was the ninth American series of nuclear weapons tests. It took place in 1953 at the Nevada Test Site instead of. A total of eleven bombs were tested, seven of which were detonated on towers, three were dropped from aircraft and one test involved a nuclear artillery shell.

1000 soldiers observed the Harry (Dirty Harry) explosion on May 19, 1953 as part of the Desert Rock V military exercise.

3.388 soldiers took part in maneuvers during and after the detonation as part of the Desert Rock V military exercise.

https://www.atomwaffena-z.info/glossar/s/s-texte/artikel/cc64b06820/strahlenwirkung-auf-menschen.html
 

Example from 1954:

Tozkoye military training area

On September 14, 1954, the Soviet Army led the 215 km from Orenburg distant Tozkoye military training area carried out a maneuver with the use of an atomic bomb. At 09:53 a.m., a Tu-4 bomber dropped an atomic bomb with an explosive force of 40 kilotons on the area of ​​the military training area. The aim of the "experiment" was to examine the stability of material and people in a battle under the conditions of a nuclear war.

After the atomic bomb was dropped and exploded, the soldiers were sent out of their protective trenches to face the explosion ...

The death toll from this maneuver is still unknown. Even today, the number of diseases of some types of cancer in Orenburg is twice as high as among the victims of the Chernobyl reactor disaster.
 

The development of nuclear weapons continues. After generation 1 (uranium and plutonium bombs) in the 1940s, generation 2 (hydrogen bombs) was developed in the 1950s, generation 3 (neutron bombs) from 1960 and later generation 4 (nanotechnology bombs) ...

Test areas where nuclear weapons have been detonated: Where nuclear weapons, atomic or hydrogen bombs have been and are being tested.Nuclear Weapons Tests - Proving Grounds

On July 16, 1945, the United States of America detonated the first nuclear bomb in New Mexico "Trinity"...

More than 2050 nuclear weapons tests have been carried out worldwide since 1945

The more than 500 aboveground nuclear weapons tests were nothing more than atomic bomb explosions and at least 15 of the more than 1500 underground tests were so violent that the overburden was simply blasted away and they became aboveground tests.

The explosive power of the nuclear weapons tests in the 1950s was mostly much higher than the explosive power of the two atomic bombs from 1945. The USA and the Soviet Union rocked each other higher and higher over the years, up to the hydrogen bombs' Castle Bravo '1954 and' AN 602 'The so-called' Tsar bomb '1961. This was no longer about kilotons (1000 tons of TNT) explosive force, meanwhile the suspects, strange professors, researchers and politicians calculated in megatons (1000.000 tons of TNT) explosive force.

Detonated on February 28, 1954 "Castle Bravo" in Bikini Atoll with an explosive force of 15 mT (15.000.000 tons of TNT).

On October 30, 1961, AN 602 exploded, the "Tsar bomb" over Novaya Zemlya with 50 - 58 mT (58.000.000 tons of TNT).

The explosive force of 58 mT corresponds approximately to a ball made of the explosive TNT with a diameter of 400 meters...

But of course we cannot ignore the other nuclear powers. Great Britain, France, China, Israel, India, Pakistan and North Korea are pumping enormous amounts of tax money into nuclear armaments

Money that none of them actually have or could use it more sensibly - for the good of the population and for securing the future.

North Korea, for example, could not starve its population ...

In Pakistan and India the situation looks only slightly better and all the other countries would also be better advised to stop saving their infrastructure, education and health care ...

And even the “non-nuclear bomb country” Germany could easily spend less money on death and ruin

According to ICAN calculations, the total costs of a total of 135 new aircraft including 90 »Eurofighters« over an estimated 30-year usage period with expenses for maintenance, fuel, etc. could amount to more than 100 billion euros. The fact that both US and EU-produced jets are to be bought for the successor to the "tornadoes" goes back to a compromise made by former Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen. Ordering 35 F-18 fighter jets would be a welcome billion dollar injection for the crisis-ridden US manufacturer Boeing ...

April 21, 2020 - Armament - atomic bombs on the approach

Update:

March 14, 2022 - Federal government wants to buy F-35 stealth jets for the German armed forces
 

Between 1945 and 1962, the USA alone carried out 210 atmospheric nuclear weapons tests - initially only in the desert of New Mexico, later on the Bikini Atoll in the Pacific

Uranium ammunition: Not only contaminates the soil - Where 'armor piercing' uranium ammunition was and is used.Uranium ammunition

From uranium to uranium ammunition

Natural uranium in the commercial form "yellow cake" dissolved from the rock consists of only about 0,7% fissile uranium-235 and 99% of non-fissile uranium-238. Enriched uranium with a content of at least 5% uranium-235 is required for further use in the nuclear industry. During the enrichment in centrifuges, 7 ton of material enriched to 1% uranium-5 is obtained from 235 tons of "yellow cake" and about 6 tons of depleted uranium (DU Depleted Uranium) remain. As a result, depleted uranium is available in abundance as a waste product of the civil nuclear industry and actually has to be disposed of as nuclear waste at an expensive rate.

However, the uranium industry is very creative when it comes to marketing its nuclear waste. In the past, lead, for example, was used as a trim weight in aircraft and as ballast in ships, since the uranium industry has pushed nuclear waste into the market as a valuable material, depleted uranium has also been used as a weight.

The effect of uranium bullets

Depleted uranium (99,8% uranium-238, 0,2% uranium-235) has a very high density of 19,1 g / cm³ and is therefore an extremely heavy and hard metal. Projectiles made from this material have enormous penetrating power. When penetrating the armor, the frictional heat creates temperatures of 3 - 5000 degrees Celsius and a cloud of highly toxic, radioactive, highly flammable uranium dust that immediately sets everything on fire. People and material burn up, fuel and ammunition are ignited, what remains is a burned-out wreck and uranium dust.

Uranium dust in the body

The uranium in this cloud is in the form of nanoparticles as metal gas, this gas is either washed into the groundwater by the rain and / or the wind can blow it far away or through all the cracks. No living being is safe from inhaling this gas or ingesting uranium nanoparticles with food.

Residents of the surrounding villages are slowly but surely being poisoned.

If uranium gets into the body, the affected organs are irradiated from the inside; Depending on the dose, dying can take days or even years. Under certain circumstances there are changes in the genetic make-up and the consequences of the radiation will only be visible in the next generations. With the current state of science, the true cause of the deformities cannot be determined with certainty.

Dealing with the problem

So it is easy for those responsible for the use of uranium ammunition to parry every critical objection with the same slogan: "Fake news, nothing has been proven, there is no danger"; and because what cannot be, all calls for consequences are ignored and the topic is kept out of the media and thus out of public discussion by all means.

The media are gently embedded and sung to sleep with angels' tongues or blackmailed, coerced and threatened, the best are sacrificed.

The history of DU ammunition

Tests with uranium ammunition were carried out by German scientists as early as the 1940s, but because of the uranium shortage, these projectiles could not be produced in large quantities at that time. Ammunition hardened with uranium has been used to combat armored vehicles since the mid-1970s.

Uranium ammunition is hoarded by the armed forces of at least 21 countries: USA, Russia, Great Britain, People's Republic of China, Sweden, Netherlands, Greece, France, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Turkey, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Pakistan, Thailand, South Korea, Japan ...

Uranium ammunition has been used in Serbia, Bosnia (1991), Somalia (1993), Kosovo (1995), Afghanistan (2001), Iraq (1991, 2003), Chechnya (1999-2009), Libya and Syria (since 2014). During a three-week mission in the Iraq war in 2003, between 1.000 and 2.000 tons of uranium ammunition were fired by the "coalition of the willing" ...

Cases of malformations in newborns are increasing

It is not known whether the Saudi Arabian military actually uses uranium ammunition and will - if at all - only be determined after the end of the war ...
 

Article from December 1, 2016:

Pentagon confirms use of uranium ammunition in Syria

Once again the United States, which had bombed Iraq with tons of uranium ammunition, together with Israel, France and Great Britain voted against a UN resolution on uranium ammunition a month ago - Germany abstained

The Pentagon has confirmed suspicions that uranium ammunition had also been used in bombing during the anti-IS war. However, Centcom only concedes that this only happened twice on November 18 and 23, 2015. 5100 30mm ammunition were used by an A-10 Thunderbolt II attack aircraft, which corresponds to an amount of 1524 kg of depleted uranium ...
 

The taboo subject of uranium ammunition - why are our media involved?

The quiet dying after the war

The German media last debated the dangers of uranium ammunition seven years ago. Since then there has been almost silence - although the USA and NATO continue to use the controversial projectiles in wars. Why is that so - this question is Dr. Sabine Schiffer, founder and head of the Institute for Media Responsibility in Erlangen.

Nuclear waste! Folding and storageNuclear waste! Folding and storage

All radioactively contaminated materials, work equipment, containers, protective clothing, tools and machines, right up to the rubble of entire building parts, must be safely packaged and stored. This safe storage of radioactive waste has to be guaranteed in some cases for thousands of years.

The irresponsible 'responsible persons' like to make things a little easier and cheaper for themselves. For 50 years radioactive waste was simply and cheaply dumped into the sea. This procedure was only banned by the 'International Maritime Organization' (IMO) in 1994, unfortunately only for solids.

84.688 TBq was the radioactive contamination of the solids, mostly packed in concrete or metal drums, which were dumped in the sea until 1994.

Who dumped nuclear waste into the sea, where and how much?

Nuclear waste sunk in the sea - (PDF 4,3 MB) IAEA-TECDOC-1105 from 1999
 

1 Terabecquerel = 1000 billion Becquerel (1000.000.000.000 Bq)

1 Becquerel = 1 nuclear disintegration per second.

The EU limit value for drinking water is 10 Becquerel per liter.
 

Wikipedia de

In the past, the dumping areas were regularly examined and the seabed, water and fish checked for radioactivity. In fact, researchers found radionuclides that indicate that barrels have leaked. Traces of plutonium have been found in fish. But then the governments simply stopped investigations in the vicinity of the so-called dumping grounds. Today the more than 100.000 tons of radioactive waste lying on the ocean floor west of Europe have long been displaced and forgotten ...

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altlasten_in_den_Meeren

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurd's_Deep
 

The ban on dumping only applies to contaminated solids, not to radioactive liquids, such as those in Sellafield, La Haque and all other uranium factories worldwide! In both Sellafield and La Hague, large amounts of toxic wastewater are discharged into the sea every day by means of long pipes below the surface of the water ...

The search for and the construction of 'safe repositories', this is becoming more and more evident, is just another beautiful and expensive story of the nuclear lobby; a utopia, because safe repositories for eternity do not exist and will not exist in the future either.

Toxic radioactive waste is not allowed into the 'end of the world' Taiga or dumped into some deposit deep down in the mountain, where it can react 'out of sight, out of mind', for thousands of years, unobserved ...

Nuclear waste in the Asse II salt mineAsse II: Irradiated Legacy

Nuclear waste, a test repository and the return plan

For thousands of years, the nuclear waste in Asse II mine should be safe. But the reality is different: since the last barrel with low and medium level radioactive nuclear waste was dumped, more and more water has been entering the salt dome. Now the radiating waste has to be recovered, otherwise there is a risk of contamination.

Between 1967 and 1978 a good 120.000 barrels of low and medium level radioactive nuclear waste were stored in the former Asse II salt mine - some neatly set up, but most of them simply dumped. Although water seeped in in some places at that time, the test repository was partially filled in, and flooding with brine was also planned ...

Final storage of nuclear waste can only mean interim storage of nuclear waste

This material must be easily accessible, stored in manageable small units and under constant observation of science, research and the public behind thick walls, as safely as possible. That is expensive, but inevitable and quite feasible.

There is no end, as the word repository implies, when it comes to atoms and radioactivity...

The nuclear industry lobbyistsNuclear industry lobbyists

A pair of information war, or in other words a war against the free flow of information, is in full swing. All nine nuclear weapons states and many other repressive states stand firmly together and fight side by side against press freedom and to keep relevant information under MIK's control.

Information Control and Wikipedia

The Association of German Nuclear lobby, known as the since 1959 German Atomic Forum e. V. , has adopted a new name in 2019 and is now called Core Technology Germany e. V.! This belittling language of the Nuclear lobby was in German Wikipedia started a few years ago and has now been almost completely implemented. Bad words like Nuclear bomb can no longer be found. In the German language, Core weapon decidedly better, a bit like peanuts and/or. pea gun. That too Nuclear power stations there is in German Wikipedia no more, the detour now leads to Nuclear power plant.
Unfortunately, more and more article content in the German Wikipedia "revised" and facts that indicated e.g. problems in research facilities and / or in the operation of nuclear reactors are simply no longer to be found ...

 

On the subject of 'language' I read an interesting article in the 'World Nuclear News':

Mind your (nuclear) language

Point of view: Pay attention to your (nuclear) language

The nuclear industry cannot assume that the words and phrases it commonly understands as scientific or technical terms have a positive connotation to the public, writes Neil Alexander, Principal Consultant at Bucephalus Consulting.

"We have all heard that a picture is worth a thousand words. That should come as no surprise, because our minds have always been focused on dealing with pictures, with the face of our mother, the outline of a lion in the savannah, the path of ours Cave to the berry bush. Images have always been vital to our survival and are inevitably powerful.

Less valued is the power of words to create mental images and how this affects the perception of nuclear power. The power of words shouldn't come as a surprise either, as language was developed so that we could describe things to each other when there was no picture and then evolved to describe things like emotions or complex principles by creating virtual images .

Linguists speak of words with two meanings, denotative and connotative. The dictionary definition is denotative and the image that creates the word connotative. Scientists and engineers are taught to write denotatively and convey information, while poets and journalists commonly work with connotation and paint pictures for the mind. While denotative meanings may be correct, it is the images that have authority. They can make the words even more powerful than swords.

And here lies one of the challenges facing the nuclear industry, unfortunate images ...

The nuclear industry is supported by financially strong organizations

Here I have only listed the 4 major international lobby organizations, but the world map also includes national organizations, associations and pro-nuclear citizens' initiatives. These associations and citizens' initiatives are often closely linked to one another through important members. Inbreeding à la the nuclear industry, so to speak...
 

IAEA - International Atomic Energy Agency

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA, English: IAEA) was founded on July 29, 1957. The mandate and goal of this organization is to "increase the contribution of nuclear energy to peace, health and prosperity in the world". This goal is described in detail in the IAEA Statute and has not been changed since it was founded.

EURATOM - European Atomic Energy Community

Aims of EURATOM

EURATOM (also known as Eurotom) is a European community that was founded in 1957 as a result of the 1955 UN Conference in Geneva.

EURATOM is based on the "Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community (EAEC Treaty)", which regulates European cooperation with the aim of promoting the development of atomic energy and creating "core industries".

WANO - World Association of Nuclear Operators

Foundation and goals

The WANO is an interest group of the operators of the nuclear power plants, which was founded after the Chernobyl disaster. It should prevent such a disaster from ever happening again. The official establishment took place on May 15, 1989.

WNA - World Nuclear Association

Lobbying organization of the nuclear industry

The World Nuclear Association (WNA), headquartered in London, is the most important international lobbying organization for nuclear energy alongside the IAEA. It was founded in 1975 under the name Uranium Institute as a market forum for uranium. In 2001 it was given its current name and set itself the expanded goal of promoting nuclear energy and supporting the nuclear industry. The WNA also advises the IAEA, among others.

In Fukushima, reactor unit 12 exploded on March 2011, 1, unit 14 exploded on March 3, and unit 15 also blew up on March 2.
 

MiK - Military-Industrial Complex

Quote from Wikipedia:

"Anyone who talks about the 'lobbyists of the nuclear industry' cannot ignore the topic of 'MiK'. The term '(MiK) military-industrial complex' is used in socio-critical analyzes to describe the close cooperation and mutual relationships between politicians and representatives of the military as well as representatives of the defense industry ...

This quote from Wikipedia is no longer current. In the meantime, the censors of the MIK cleaning crew have deleted the first sentence without replacement.

Notes:

When the paralysis in Fukushima slowly dissolved in the summer of 2011, I started researching and creating the page 'INES and accidents in nuclear facilities' began. The data on which this almost infinite lead desert is based, I then incorporated into this pretty, colorful map for the purpose of easier digestion and with the help of Google Maps.

Fortunately, at the time I had no clue how much work I would do to create this map. However, the longer and more often I work on it, the clearer it becomes to me.

The result was a world map of 'galloping nonsense', more and more irradiated places and landscapes from which 'humans' can actually only stay away. Unfortunately, this world map will remain incomplete forever, because I have to keep adding new entries from 'Sources of radioactive radiation'.

With the tens of billions of euros, pounds, dollars, rubles, renminbi and yen etc., which the construction of this madness cost around the world and which the inevitable exit will cost, humanity would have:

Defeat hunger worldwide, accommodate all refugees in palaces and what I don't know can do that is sensible!

Instead, we used the money to contaminate this planet ...

 


For work on 'THTR circular', 'reaktorpleite.de' and 'Map of the nuclear world' we need up-to-date information, energetic, fresh comrades-in-arms under 100 (;-) and donations. If you can help, please send a message to: info@reaktorpleite.de

Donation appeal

- The THTR circular is published by the 'BI Environmental Protection Hamm' and is financed by donations.

- The THTR circular has meanwhile become a much-noticed information medium. However, there are ongoing costs due to the expansion of the website and the printing of additional information sheets.

- The THTR circular researches and reports in detail. In order for us to be able to do that, we depend on donations. We are happy about every donation!
