The 1607 flood. en.wikipedia.org...

...the risk of similar future events is considered to be low...

Concern has also been expressed that the nuclear power stations at Hinkley Point and Oldbury could be endangered.
Low risk. Heard that one before.


The cause of the flood is open to interpretation.

As geologists, the obvious solution would be to look to the rock record; however, tsunami deposits are notoriously tricky to identify because their physical markers are incredibly hard to distinguish from other sources of coastal flooding. Pro-tsunami authors Haslett & Bryantt cite sand “storm” layers in sediments, erosion of salt marshes, vortex pools, and imbricated boulder dumps as supporting evidence for a ‘killer wave'; all features imply rapid deposition from a forceful flow of water. Their proposed mechanism for the tsunami is either a submarine landslide or earthquake in the sea between Ireland and Cornwall.

ATS being what it is, this has been covered before.

The asteroid angle. www.theguardian.com...

If we want to argue over the possible causes why not put the kettle on and add asteroids to the list.

Britain could be hit by a devastating asteroid tsunami...
www.ibtimes.co.uk... They go on to say asteroid hitting of the Norfolk coast. But that is just a guess. An asteroid in the Irish sea may well have caused the 1607 flood.


We know what happens.
Though the actual cause of the meltdowns may have been the fracturing of the cooling system pipes by the earthquake rather than the flood damage itself. Still. Flooding the entire site won't help.

What are we going to do to stop the asteroid tsunami nuclear meltdown threat? Throw badgers at it?

Or take legal, peaceful, direct action preventing the construction of nuclear power stations on flood prone coastal sites.

Sorry if I missed something in the OP, but are there plans for coastal nuclear power plants then?

As we saw last winter, we don't need a whole lot for parts of the UK to flood drastically anyway, let alone a freak event.

Interesting thread.

The Austrians are fighting the new build at Hinkley.
www.burnhamandhighbridgeweeklynews.co.uk...

The Austrian government was set to file the complaint on Monday against the European Commission decision to give the nuclear power project the green light, however it has now been put back until later this week. The power station is expected to provide seven per cent of the UK’s electricity by 2023.


At Oldbury on Severn there are plans to build next to the existing station.
Over my dead body.

The old triangular tidal cooling water reservoir immediately silted up when it was constructed as all the old river men told them it would. Not only that.

Aqueous effluent and cooling water discharges are made to the River Severn via a culvert that runs underneath the tidal reservoir to the central part of the river channel (to attain maximum dispersion of radioactivity )


If you can take more. Perhaps sit down first. That triangle used to be farmland before it was washed away by the 1607 storm surge/tsunami/asteroid strike/ flood. I suppose you could make this up but you'd probably be too embarrassed to say something that is so obviously ridiculous.

The old Oldbury plant has pre-stressed concrete pressure vessels that only have a fraction of the strength the designers hoped for. Oh well. We all make mistakes. They're getting on quite well with removing the fuel rods. Except for the ones that are jammed that we aren't meant to know about. When Fukushima radiation reached here it set off the emergency shut down system. The level of radiation was so high the detectors assumed the problem was with the reactor, not the pesky one world we live in where one meltdown affects everyone. www.bbc.co.uk... Radiation detectors worldwide had to be re calibrated to allow for Fukushima contamination. Don't worry. That's just a 'conspiracy theory'. Look! Squirrel!

In the link about the flood it mentions sparks coming off the top of the waves.......OK how on earth is this possible in this time period.......YA it clearly says sparks coming off the top of the waves.

Just to add this to the mix. I've seen a big beefy traveller telling smaller beefy travellers "and e's against the new nuclear. That'll bring 'elluva lotoff work to the area" while jerking his thumb towards me. Smaller travellers looked uncertain, obviously wondering why they were being manipulated to oppose 'Mr Machete'. If he had a problem why didn't he take me on himself? I'm just a skinny half-dead hippy.

Money talks. Any activists who can mess with the money side could achieve some positive change. But remember. We have to offer an alternative. Big renewables are just as useless as big nuclear/oil/gas/coal. If it's run by the investors it will ignore human suffering and environmental catastrophe as long as the figures add up. uk.reuters.com...

Britain's new Energy Minister Andrea Leadsom said at the same event she was confident EDF would make its decision soon.

"There's a whole raft of different factors involved and it's progressing nicely," she told reporters at the conference.


Different factors. Do any of these factors involve love? Appreciation of our natural surroundings? The health of the seventh generation? Or just money.

Headphones advised for the full experience.

Thanks for the info.........Kinda of a let down but it makes sense.

So Hinkley and Oldbury, they're in pretty flood prone areas right?

Yes. This is Berkeley a short distance upstream from Oldbury. There are 4,000 tons of radioactive graphite in the two old reactors here. They wont touch it for another 65 years because it's too dangerous. There are almost a thousand tons of waste in the active waste vaults, cracked concrete underground stores that have flooded in the past. Some of the waste in the vaults is undocumented experimental waste from the laboratories. These reactors and others in the UK provided plutonium for US weapons. The minister in charge at the time, Tony Benn, was encouraged by his 'officials', (the secret unelected government), to waffle gloriously about atoms for peace. He only found out it was all a lie when Ross Hesketh told him. www-pub.iaea.org...(Holt).pdf

Not insanity if the object is to kill us.

Hmm, not sure about the depopulation agenda with this one. Not saying there isn't an agenda, I often get the feeling that there is one.

However, a nuclear depopulation would surely leave the world as uninhabitable to the elite as it would be for us.

Unless, y'know, breakaway civ....

This is the problem with understanding it. Do we know they actually want to survive themselves? Insanity?
