Nuclear power india

  1. 1. At the cost of…
  2. 2. Living Habitat Ecological Imbalance
  3. 3. Say NO to Nuclear Power home
  4. 4. It’s here - the Nuclear Industry!
  5. 5. How Nuclear Energy Works Radiation at EACH STAGE home
  6. 6. Fuel Enrichment Uranium Mining Power Generation Waste Disposal RADIATION INCREASES multifold at each stage!
  7. 7. Radioactive Waste • Generated at each stage - Mining, Enrichment, Power Generation – Waste from Enrichment has been used in Depleted Uranium (DU) bombs used in Iraq • Even 21st century science has NO ANSWER for Nuclear Waste Disposal – Waste contaminates (beyond scope for inhabitation) a huge area in its vicinity for 1000’s of years Is it Safe? What about the Environment & People? home
  8. 8. Radiation Contaminates Always • Even if there is NO NUCLEAR ACCIDENT – Around a Uranium Mine – Around an Enrichment Facility – Around a Nuclear Plant – Around Nuclear Waste An area of 30-35 km radius gets contaminated by nuclear radiation regularly! home
  9. 9. Radiation Spares Nothing • Impacts Vegetation - Agriculture – Trees near Jaduguda Uranium Mines have DEFORMED SEEDS – Agricultural produce is bound to carry unacceptable amounts of radioactive content • Impacts Animals – Radioactive Boars on the rise in Germany (thanks to Chernobyl) • Impacts Human Beings home
  10. 10. Nuclear Accidents Are Worse! • Chernobyl : An area of 1,00,000 sq km is UNINHABITABLE for 20,000 years. FOREVER. Date: 26 April 1986 Plant Capacity: 900 MW
  11. 11. Nuclear ‘Meltdown’ in the USA • Three Mile Island, Pennsylvania: Happened in 1979 due to the meltdown of fuel rods • Health effects mostly unstudied or kept clandestine home
  12. 12. Impact of Nuclear Radiation on Humans • Cancer in the next 2 to 60 years • Deformed babies - FOREVER! The pictures that follow may be disturbing Jump to Existing Nuclear Plants in India only if you are extremely week-hearted home
  13. 13. 40 Years Old Uranium Mines in Jaduguda, Jharkhand home
  14. 14. home
  15. 15. Near Rawatbhata Power Plant Near Kota, Rajasthan home
  16. 16. home
  17. 17. After Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster 1986 home
  18. 18. home
  19. 19. After American Bombing in Iraq Depleted Uranium (DU) Bombs made out of The Waste from Uranium Enrichment home
  20. 20. home
  21. 21. Semey: USSR’s Nuclear Testing Site During Cold War home
  22. 22. home
  23. 23. Still Nuclear Plants are being pushed in India… home
  24. 24. Existing Nuclear Plants in India Before the Indo-US Nuclear Deal home
  25. 25. Nuclear Plants in India (2010) Narora, UP - 440 MW Rawatbhata, Raj - 2,580 MW Kakrapar, Gujarat - 1,840 MW Tarapur, Mah - 1,400 MW Kaiga, Karnataka - 880 MW Kalpakkam, TN - 940 MW home
  26. 26. Proposed Nuclear Plants in India After the Indo-US Nuclear Deal home
  27. 27. Post Indo-US Nuclear Deal Kumhariya, Haryana 2,800 MW Narora, UP - 440 MW Rawatbhata, Raj - 2,580 MW Mithi Virdi Bargi, MP 1,400 MW Kakrapar, Gujarat - 1,840 MW Haripur, WB 10,000 MW Tarapur, Mah - 1,400 MW Kovvada, AP 8,000 MW Jaitapur, Mah 9,900 MW Kaiga, Karnataka - 880 MW Kalpakkam, TN - 940 MW Koodankulam , TN 9,200 MW Existing Plants Proposed Plants home
  28. 28. Nuclear Plants & Seismic Zone in India home
  29. 29. Approximate Impact Area of Nuclear Accidents In India home
  30. 30. Impact of Nuclear Accidents in India Can you imagine the massive loss of Human Lives, Forests, Agriculture, Animals, Econ omic Activities? For 1000’s of years! Existing Plants Proposed Plants home
  31. 31. OK, If Not Nuclear Then What? Feeding Electricity to the Super Power in making… home
  32. 32. Improving Existing Energy Efficiency • India can save 30-40% of its electricity deficit by simple Conservation techniques – Improving the efficiency of existing power plants (we are way behind international standards at the moment) – Decentralizing electricity generation to reduce long distance transmission losses The cost of implementing these Efficiency Improvement Measures is MUCH LESS THAN that of setting up New Plants home
  33. 33. Conserving Electricity • We can save 30% increased demand of electricity by 2013 by using energy efficient electrical infrastructure at home – Fans, Incandescent Bulbs, Tube Lights – Refrigerators, ACs, Air Coolers – Electric Water Heaters – Computers, TVs, DVD Players, Set-Top-Boxes (active mode) home
  34. 34. Use Renewable Sources • They are Cheap Spend the millions & billions on research of Renewable Energy rather than on Nuclear • They are Unlimited • They don’t Kill • They are ‘un-researched’ America is the world’s largest producer of Wind Power Solar Energy has the potential to feed Earth 1000 times Solar Water Heaters in Bangalore save 900 MW of peak load. Already! home
  35. 35. India’s Electricity Scenario Government declares • Projected energy by all Nuclear Plants = just 60,000 MW – Hardly 10% of the electricity deficit home
  36. 36. Why RISK Indian lives for just 10% of electricity? Impact of Nuclear Accidents in India Existing Plants Proposed Plants home home
  37. 37. The Potential of Renewable Sources • Latest studies indicate that Wind Energy & Solar Energy hold the keys to sustained development! home
  38. 38. The Politics of Nuclear Power in India Ever heard of a lucrative Wind or Solar Scientist post?
  39. 39. Why is Nuclear Power Promoted in India? • Current energy policies are designed to benefit foreign MNCs General Electrics Westinghouse Areva Newspapers admit that THEY ARE HERE FOR A $40 BN BUSINESS home
  40. 40. Why is Nuclear Power Promoted in India? • Profit for MNCs who will provide reactor designs • Commission for Indian Politicians, Intellectuals, Scientists Investment at the 9,900 WM Jaitapur ` 10,00,00,00,00,00,000 Nuclear Plant One Lakh Crores only! All Nuclear Plants in India offer lucrative prospects for these Patriots! home
  41. 41. Why is Renewable Energy Unknown? • Very less or No Scope for Investment (read profit) • Giants MNCs in the Nuclear Power sector are too strong to let the Renewable Energy sector grow – And hence, almost No Solar or Wind Scientists home
  42. 42. Why SPOIL Indian lives for their Profit? Impact of Nuclear Accidents in India Existing Plants Proposed Plants home
  43. 43. And Our Government’s Gift for US • The Nuclear Civil Liabilities Bill by our government says that: No-Fault Liability on Operators - Any foreign company WILL NOT be held liable for any nuclear accidents on Indian soil, whatsoever The compensation liability is capped to a fixed amount, which is inadequate We CAN NOT sue them in Indian or Foreign courts home
  44. 44. And Our Government’s Gift for US … Cont’d Highly Inadequate Compensation Liability home
  45. 45. The World Has Started Protesting Nuclear Energy
  46. 46. The ‘West’ is Disowning Nuclear Power • Most Americans are against Nuclear Power – Major concerns: • Continuous radiation emitted in normal functioning of Nuclear Plants • Nuclear Waste disposal • Threats of nuclear accidents • Australia’s Uranium reserves are world’s largest (23% of total), still Australia has never built a Nuclear Power Plant! home
  47. 47. Wondering What You Can Do About This? • Understand the politics of promoting Nuclear Power in India • Spread awareness about this massive public betrayal as much as possible Register your strong protest to • Prime Minister- • Environment Minister- • State Govt of Maharashtra- • State Govt of Gujarat-
