Nuclear Reactor

  1. 1. It’s here - the Nuclear Industry!
  2. 2. How Nuclear Energy Works Radiation at EACH STAGE home
  3. 3. Fuel EnrichmentUranium Mining Power Generation Waste Disposal RADIATION INCREASES multifold at each stage!
  4. 4. 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 What about the Is it Safe? Environment & People? home
  5. 5. 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
  6. 6. 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
  7. 7. 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
  8. 8. 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
  9. 9. Impact of Nuclear Radiation on Humans • Cancer in the next 2 to 60 years • Deformed babies - FOREVER! The pictures that follow may be disturbingJump to Existing Nuclear Plants in India only if you are extremely week-hearted home

  18. 18. Semey: USSR’s Nuclear Testing Site During Cold War home
  19. 19. home
  20. 20. Still Nuclear Plants are being pushed in India… home
  21. 21. Existing Nuclear Plants in India Before the Indo-US Nuclear Deal home
  22. 22. Nuclear Plants in India (2010) Narora, UP - 440 MW Rawatbhata, Raj - 2,580 MW Kakrapar, Gujarat - 1,840 MWTarapur, Mah - 1,400 MW Kaiga, Karnataka - 880 MW Kalpakkam, TN - 940 MW home
  23. 23. Proposed Nuclear Plants in India After the Indo-US Nuclear Deal home
  24. 24. Post Indo-US Nuclear Deal Kumhariya, Haryana 2,800 MW Narora, UP - 440 MW Rawatbhata, Raj - 2,580 MW Bargi, MPMithi Virdi, Gujarat 1,400 MW 8,000 MW Kakrapar, Gujarat - 1,840 MW Haripur, WB 10,000 MW Tarapur, Mah - 1,400 MW Kovvada, AP Jaitapur, Mah 8,000 MW 9,900 MW Kaiga, Karnataka - 880 MW Kalpakkam, TN - 940 MW Existing Plants Koodankulam , TN Proposed Plants 9,200 MW home
  25. 25. Approximate Impact Area of Nuclear Accidents In India home
  26. 26. Impact of Nuclear Accidents in IndiaCan you imagine the massive loss of Human Lives, Forests, Agriculture, Animals, Economic Activities? For 1000’s of years! Existing Plants Proposed Plants home
  27. 27. OK, If Not Nuclear Then What? Feeding Electricity to the Super Power in making… home
  28. 28. 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 ImprovementMeasures is MUCH LESS THAN that of setting up New Plants home
  29. 29. 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
  30. 30. Use Renewable Sources• They are Cheap Spend the millions & billions on• They are Unlimited research of Renewable Energy rather than on Nuclear• 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
  31. 31. India’s Electricity ScenarioGovernment declares• Projected energy by all Nuclear Plants = just 60,000 MW – Hardly 10% of the electricity deficit home
  32. 32. Why RISK Indian lives for just 10% of electricity? home
  33. 33. The Potential of Renewable Sources• Latest studies indicate that Wind Energy & Solar Energy hold the keys to sustained development! home
  34. 34. The Politics of Nuclear Power in India Ever heard of a lucrative Wind or Solar Scientist post?
  35. 35. 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
  36. 36. 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
  37. 37. 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
  38. 38. Why SPOIL Indian lives for their Profit? home
  39. 39. And Our Government’s Gift for US• The Nuclear Civil Liabilities Bill by our government says that: Any foreign company WILL NOT be held liable for any nuclear accidents on Indian soil, whatsoever They WILL NOT pay any Compensation We CAN NOT sue them in Indian or Foreign courts home
  40. 40. The World Has Started Protesting Nuclear Energy
  41. 41. 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 has never built a Nuclear Power Plant! home
  42. 42. Wondering What You Can Do About This?• Understand the politics of promoting Nuclear Power in India• Spread awareness about this massive public betrayal Jago Re !
