There are ten Magnox sites. Some of them are in the same locations as the operating sites you mentioned, some are not. They are massively toxic.
Demolishing the reactors will not be attempted for many decades due to the impossibility of carrying out that task with an acceptable degree of
safety. Sorry grandchildren, that's your job, and you get exactly zero benefit from it. These places will all need adequate guarding over many, many
The defuelling at Oldbury seems to have hit a snag. Although not generating it still has to be cooled to avoid meltdown. The concrete vessel was a
prototype and has proved woefully inadequate.
When the active waste vaults have finally been cleaned out all that waste will be stored in cheap aluminium warehouses by the sea. These warehouses
are designed to last 150 years. Perhaps they have a secret deal with the seawater to not corrode the aluminium. It isn't certain when or even if the
underground depository will be built. If it is and waste is sealed into containers they will allegedly burst after a few hundred years due to helium
Drigg looks insane on google maps. Thousands of steel containers rusting away in the open. www.bbc.co.uk...
"But the site's operators say even in the worst-case scenario the impact on life and the environment will be insignificant." Okay. So it's
insignificant. But we need loads of money to manage it. Someone's telling porkies.
At least we know from the metal detecting video the CNC aren't far away, albeit acting as heavies for posh twerps.
The point is there's plenty of dangerous nuclear material that hasn't got a rapid response team on site. And the danger of a genuine terror attack is
going to be with us for as long as this material is above ground and relatively easily accessible.
I'm going to have to go back over to Skunk Works so I can say what I really feel. The possibility of maniacs in power using civil nuclear material for
depopulation purposes has to be considered. Don't try to work out why they'd do it. They've given us enough evidence of their utter
