Baltic Sea Regional ECRR admited to the Swedish Environmental court in Nacka comments on the outstanding information still to be answered by Swedish Radiation Safety Authority SSM and Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company SKB regarding (1) SKBs application to build the Forsmark Spent Nuclear Fuel Waste Final Repository and (2) its Environmental Impact Statement and associated data.
ECRR objects to SKBs general rejection of commenting deeper on groups of questions included in the processes submitting most of radiation related issues to arbitration by SSM through Kärntekniklagen. All of this process should be brought before the Environmental Court as it primarily is an environmental issue.
SSM still has not asked SKB as an applicant to use a scientifically valid radiation risk model and has not started to engage independent experts.
ECRR identifies missing information still to be answered by SSM and SKB regarding SKB´s application to build Forsmark Spent Nuclear Fuel Waste Final Repository as well as its Environmental Impact Statement and associated data.
Summarising the current situation ECRR suggests the Court to rule the request for substantial source of funding for independent scientific scrutiny of the application to build Forsmark Spent Nuclear Fuel Waste Final Repository (SNFWFR).

WRITE A PETITION TO EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT and enforce reassesment of EURATOM Treaty!
TAKES A COUPLE OF HOURS TO DO!
Pr C.Busby on the EU Parliament Petition for EURATOM Justification, 6th of August 2012
Two ways to act – prepare one or both
1. Write a Petition to the Petitions Committee of the European Parliament. The template of the Petition comes as an individual petition, from yourself or the NGO you represent, for a petition to the European Parliament. This can be submitted online (see details) but would be more powerful if it were a paper copy sent to the address of the Petitions Committee in Brussels by post recorded delivery (signed for). Please add your own reasons why you feel that the radioactive releases from the nuclear project are or will affect you personally e.g. you live near a nuclear plant and feel that you suffer an increased risk of cancer, or that your children may be affected etc
Download EU Petition Template. !!! The Template is a version for Sweden. You have to adapt it for Your country, examples for Sweden, UK and Ireland are given :
Send the Europarl Petition to:European Parliament The Petitions Committee of the European Parliament Rue Wiertz B-1047 BRUSSELS Belgium
2. At the same time, begin the second part of this strategy. Copy the Petition you sent to the EU Petitions Office to the National Environmental State Office. This is usually the Ministry of the Environment. Check your Government to find out. Add a covering letter asking the Minister to arrange for the National Competent Authority to set up a process where re-Justification of the country’s Radiation exposure practices which is transparent and (according to international Human Rights agreements and laws) permits inputs from scientists appointed by the public.See the details of this process on http://nuclearjustice.org/?p=19

Pandora´s Canister, by Pr Chris Busby – Swedish Forsmark Final Nuclear Waste Repository report
Pr Busby concludes that the documentation provided shows that the safety case is not made. The Radiation Risk model of the ICRP which is employed by SKB is unsafe for exposures to internal radionuclides. The model of the ECRR should be employed. The documentation is biased and spun in favour of the project and omits a significant number of calculations and information necessary to properly evaluate the whole process. In particular, the activities between the removal of the fuel from the reactors and the placement of the sealed canisters in the repository are not properly discussed or evaluated. Finally Pr Busby shows that the project must fail because the alpha particle derived Helium gas produced in the reference scenario will cause the sealed canisters to explode in the 1000 year time frame. This would effectively destroy all life in the Baltic Sea and make the coasts uninhabitable. He lists a series of questions and asks for missing analyses and data.
Fukushima worse than Chernobyl for radioactive emissions
Press Release 11.03.2012
A report by Prof Chris Busby released today from Green Audit uses the most recent (March 1st 2012) data published by the Norwegian Institute for Air Research, Kjeller, Norway, to show that the Fukushima catastrophe released 9 times more of the radioactive gas Xe-133 to the atmosphere than Chernobyl accident did in 1986. Using the most authoritative and agreed estimated releases of the nuclide Caesium 137 only, he shows that the releases from Fukushima and Chernobyl are, in fact comparable. This gives the lie to the many statements in the media that the releases from Fukushima are 1/10th those from Chernobyl. Prof Busby’s report also uses theoretical arguments and published data from standard works on radiation inventories of nuclear power plants to show that these estimates and findings are reasonable.
It follows that the Fukushima catastrophe was more serious in terms of its releases of these two nuclides than Chernobyl. This is not surprising since there were three reactors breached at Fukushima to one at Chernobyl of equivalent capacity, said Busby. Total Fukushima releases exceeded 2 x 1019 Bq (20EBq) and were overall more than twice the releases from Chernobyl. The high population density of the area contaminated makes this a more serious issue for health than the Chernobyl releases. These findings support the early assessment made by Prof Busby in March and later in August 2011 and the many statements he made to the BBC, ITV, and Russia Today and show that those many pro nuclear experts who talked down the seriousness of the catastrophe were wrong.
Busby draws attention to the fact that a large number of radionuclides were released which were not measured or listed, including the beta emitters Tritium, Barium 140 and Lanthanum 140, and including the alpha emitters Plutonium and Uranium, none of which can be measured with normal equipment.
Busby said: Of course what we are really interested in here is the health outcome, which in my opinion will be worse than Chernobyl’s since the population density in the areas in Japan where these substances were dispersed is greater than Chernobyl. Those who mislead the public on this issue of health, who use the outdated and incorrect ICRP risk model, are worse than those who misled on the basis of the comparison with the releases since at least if we concede this, people can be evacuated and the health consequences will be reduced. All the evidence points to an error in the ICRP model of three orders of magnitude for internal exposures to the nuclides released by Fukushima, errors that have been conceded by their outgoing Scientific Secretary, Jack Valentin and errors that will be expressed in the population of Japan in t e next ten years in very real terms.

Christoph Hoerstel on Libya: NATO uses uranium weapons and bombers from Denmark
Alarming suspicion about the armour-piercing, radioactive weapons being deployed by foreign forces on Libya is natural now. The U.S. says ‘it’s not aware’ depleted uranium’s being used, while the UK’s flatly denying it. Political observer Christoph Hoerstel says NATO’s chief members have a habit of using uranium weapons – and it’s likely Libya’s in line. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4SMYL4iZQnY

INTO ETERNITY – film on final nuclear waste repository in Finland
Every day, the world over, large amounts of high-level radioactive waste created by nuclear power plants is placed in interim storage. In Finland the world’s first permanent repository is being hewn out of rock – a huge system of underground tunnels – that must last 45 billion years as this is how long the waste remains hazardous (U half-life is 4,5 bln and x 10 to loose all activity).
