THERE is a lake so radioactive you will die if you just LOOK into it for a few hours - and it's 130km from Ireland. Below the surface lies material so unstable it will explode if the air gets at it. It is so toxic it pollutes the wind that blows over it. So lethal that seagulls must be shot if they land on it to prevent them becoming radiation carriers.
Welcome to Sellafield's "Dirty Thirty" - the most contaminated place on earth and not far from Ireland's east coast. The massive radioactive lake at the home of the British nuclear industry in Cumbria contains millions of litres of deadly radioactive water and sludge. The huge B30 tank is the size of three Olympic swimming pools and is just a few hundred metres from the Irish Sea.

...Every time I start thinking maybe, just maybe, nuclear power is a reasonable energy alternative - someone like you comes along with information like this.

THE Irish government is facing a court action as a result of its own legal efforts to close down the controversial nuclear reprocessing plant at Sellafield.

On 1 May 1969, technicians lost control over the Ågesta nuclear reactor, which is located in a suburb of Stockholm
"It was without a doubt the most serious incident in the history of the Swedish nuclear industry."
The accident occurred when early in the morning a technician made an error in a routine change of a valve. A connection exploded and 500 tons of water ran over the complex. The water fell from a cooling tower 30 meters over the reactor building. On its way down, it knocked out the reactor control system. Short circuits resulted in valves opening and closing at random. Several times throughout the day the emergency core cooling system was a hair away from failure. The public was not notified. Officials determined that evacuation of the area at risk could not take place fast enough.
