Castor stop in Gorleben: if you weren't there, you've missed a lot!

News from the nuclear phase-out: "Extreme reactivity accidents" at the THTR urgently need to be investigated by RWTH Aachen University because the THTR is so incredibly safe.

THTR: 73 years of construction activity, incidents and dismantling = 423 days of electricity = 5,3191 billion euros in costs. A day of THTR electricity cost 12,5 million euros. THTR dismantling should be finished in 2044.

THTR nuclear waste will stay in Ahaus longer than planned.

Now is the time to act: childhood cancer near nuclear power plants. Opinion of the IPPNW.

The aces brings it to light: Highly radioactive THTR fuel elements of the AVR Jülich in tin cans come up again! Around 100.000 spherical fuel elements were stored up to 1978.

Insider study at Forschungszentrum Jülich proves: Inherent incidents and radioactivity emissions in the HTR line! The entire security architecture of Generation IV is thus called into question.

The big sell-off: The documentary by Florian Opitz shows, using South Africa as an example, that privatization and nuclear power plants make electricity very expensive.

Dear readers: media coverage, coal-fired power plants Hamm etc ...

From THTR to Generation IV: The nuclear industry is setting the course for the coming decades! Summarizing, (hopefully) generally understandable criticism of almost all problematic aspects of Generation IV systems. Call for discussion on this.

KiKKeriki: Wake up, Minister! The pressure for a cancer study is growing. At the RWE shareholders' meeting, in the municipalities. Successful rally in front of the THTR, signature campaign, great media coverage.

THTR demolition soon? The updated cost study is to be published in May 2008. What does the calculation example look like? What happens to the 1,6 kg nuclear fuel in the THTR?

The FZJ is researching the suitability of THTR fuel assemblies for repository: THTR spheres, please, please do not break! Further new student projects at the FZJ on the THTR.

Helmuth Bolle is dead.

The HTR in Switzerland: Risen from the ruins. Generation IV reactors in the current Swiss discussion. The machine and plant engineering company Sulzer.

Cancer risk at the THTR: Citizens' initiative calls for serious examinations instead of smoke candles! The NRW state government wants to evade responsibility with flimsy justifications. Media interest continued into January.

THTR newsletter no .: 119 - January 2008THTR Circular No. 119, January 2008

Leukemia also in Hamm and the surrounding area? Of all things, the THTR accident reactor is not being examined! The KIKK study omits the THTR with flimsy arguments. The THTR-PAC pellets from the Elbmarsch with the world's highest leukemia rate are obviously causing enough attention.

The leukemia study incident and a stubborn hammer Mayor: A pre-Christmas ox tour. Even after 21 years, the accident of 1986 is still present in people's consciousness - and becomes a surprising media event. Many of those affected report to BI.

Letter to Sigmar Gabriel: A lot of money for THTR research, but none for cancer study? - A detailed chronicle.
