No doubt you were staggered by the German government’s announcement that ‘122 incidents were subject to reporting at the country's nuclear power plants last year’.
Well, how about this. According to the French nuclear watchdog ASN’s 2007 annual report, at France’s nuclear power plants last year, there were 928 events were recorded on the International Nuclear Event Scale, the measure introduced after Chernobyl to communicate incidents at nuclear installations.
That’s 928 events. In one year. That’s over two events a day, every day, for year.
As I read your comments I also was bringing Homer to mind and then you did, so the proverbial "you took the words right off my tongue", so true!! I am so angered by the use of Depleted uranium in weapons and war vehicle metal, and the exposure to our soldiers to bring home and pass it on to their babies and carry the weight of sickness themselves. Even worse, leaving the war torn lands "hot" for thousands of years. What are governments around the world thinking? Truthfully I don't believe they do think.
