The Windscale incident of the 1950s, was caused by uranium nuclear power. That makes plutonium – the most toxic substance to man.
Then we gto PCWs, where urandium fission super heating water. As the water boils, we get the creation of much more power.
It caused 3 mile island, Chernobyl and Fukashima. EDF boasts it uses low carbon nuclear power.
CO2 increases life on Earth. Due to photosynthesis we still have just 2 parts per million of CO2 in the global air – though the industrial revolution has increased active life on ~Earth by 20%.
Burning Fossil Fuels releases restores life that died in the nass extinctions of prehistory. So when EDF boasts it does 'low carbon nuclear power' it is saying
a It does not increase active life on Earth – as burning Fossil Fuels does.
b It creates plutonium and strontium – the most toxic substances known to man.
There is a clean, safe and free alternative – you listening EDF? If you fire up a steam plasma in a glass tube, we do H fission
1 xH++e- ->(x+1)n0 we convert hydrogen ions into neutrons
2 16O2-+s n0 ->8H++4e- these neutrons convert O ions into H ions, and free electrons. No Pt or Strontium
3 H++r n0 ->Er3+L+X-ray massive heat, with light and low power X-rays.
So massive clean, free power, with no toxic death.
PWRs scatter toxic radioactive waste across a continent, ever 25 years: Fukishima will end up giving 20 million Japanese people cancer etc.
A 50x1cm steam plasma tube will develop 1.2 MW of heat – generating 120 kW of power. Enough for 250 consumers.
Generating 3.2 million UK pounds as annual income – from an out-house. From regular water. 0.7cc per decade. Now that is clean, near free and safe power.
EDF uses expensive, often lethal, and always toxic technology. It does not mention this in its adverts.
