Koodankulam is more dangerous than previously thought

Please ask those Indian miscreants the following:

  1. What IAEA standards are they adopting for Reactor safety? What Safety shut-down/Alarm and monitoring are they planning to deploy on moderator and control rods (for Neutron absorption/control)? Remember what happened when those safety measures were overlooked in Chernobyl in Russia and caused a Runaway Chain reaction that led to reactor MELTDOWN?
  2. What ambient radiation levels are they considering as “safe”?
  3. Reactors have residual alpha, Beta and Gamma radiation levels, as Uranium and Plutonium break down  via fission reactions as part of Thorium Decay series Any radioactive materials leaked into the ocean will directly affect  all fisherman folks and other people in the North and North Western settlements in Sri Lanka.Take for example the disaster in Japan’s reactors, how they flouted all safety regulations of IAEA despite being an advanced and developed nation with Public Safety as top priority. If any geological or seismic disaster was to strike in the vicinity or a Tsunami is to flood the area, this reactor in South India will devastate Sri Lanka directly. We should EDUCATE the people in the North, North East and North West areas of Sri Lanka and tell them not to be misled by their iconic movie star morons and idiots promising this reactor is safe and it is for a Tamil Nadu cause for greater good of Tamils!!! If we can get them to protest AGAINST TAMIL NADU and INDIA governments on this reactor,  we will gain ground that neither India, nor Tamil Nadu gives a rat’s dropping about the Tamils in Sri Lanka’s North, North-Eastern and North-Western areas!! Let us NOT miss this opportunity to prove India’s intentions!!!
  4. Now, If Uranium or Plutonium or Deuterium/Tritium moderator fluid leaks out, the half life of these isotopes have over Billions of years and will stick around for a LONG time.Our seafood, vegetation, and everything will be affected.
  5. What Sri Lankan Government MUST do right now is to make a STRONG policy statement to those Indian politicians and opportunitists to F-OFF and that we vehemently oppose this move to build a nuclear power plant in direct effect to Sri Lanka. Our dumb politicians must avoid being “diplomatic” with these vote-hungry Indian politicians who gives no shit About Sri Lanka or its people!!! Why do we always kiss India’s Ass?
  6. I have won a major campaign against a nuclear waste incinerator in my city of domicile in Canada in 2006 with my deliberations with Canadian Nuclear Safety Council, with the help of my backgroundin Nuclear Physics and Nuclear Reactor Safety. End result was that after I spoke at Toronto City council chambers, invited by the mayor, the city decided to reject their application with my investigations and reports of safety breaches. What are the measures and steps taken by Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Authority (while we have no nuclear reactors, they only deal withradiation contamination in food imports and isotope maintenance in hospitals)?
  7. If we did not take this SERIOUSLY, and be complacent until disaster strikes, the damage of the disaster will be of greater propensity than the Union Carbide accident in Bhopal, India,when Methyl Iso-Cyanate gas leaked out and the American company didn’t give two hoots about the innocent people that were killed for corporate gains was bigger issue to India.

India is KNOWN for cheap fixing and run operations all over with their highly corrupted social and legal system.

WHAT MORE DO WE WANT TO MAKE OUR POSITION?

WHAT MORE DO WE WANT TO MAKE OUR POSITION?

 

Let me know what ways I can help.

    Firstly, I am Indian, but am trying to be very objective on this rather ill written viewpoint of the author.

    1. Firstly, it is a very rational expectation for the SriLankan Atomic Energy Commission to approach the Department of Atomic Energy, India to raise and resolve any of their concerns on likely impacts of the plant’s operation. Srilankan readers need not be so worked up as the author above to achieve this end.

    2. Koodankulam is a Russian Plant of 1000 MW capacity class. The US and Canada are two countries which are so worried (due to potential revenue opportunity losses) since the Russians are taking a firmer root in Indian nuclear space. The author’s domicility with respect to Canada causes suspicion of ulterior motives in this regard.

    3. India’s nuclear safety record and non-proliferation records are impeccable. India has been operating CANDU reactors of Canadian origin since the early seventies and therefore possesses almost 50 years of solid experience in operating and designing plants. Not a single major accident involving any loss of life or property has ever happened. Something even teh US or Russia cannot take credit for the same. In fact Indian scientists have mastered indigenous thorium based nuclear reactor technology which is going to be world’s safest and non-proliferation proof rector technology. India and countries like Srilanka and Australia possess some of the world’s largest reserves of Thorium. Another reason why the US and Canada are hell bent to offer their technology to break the evolution of local technologies in India.

    4. Lastly the author puts himself in extremely poor light in picking shots at the Indian democratic system. Indian politicians are no doubt corrupt in their present regime, but the Indian constitution and judiciary system have enough checks and balances to assure democratic values and equality of rights and freedom of not only its own citizens but all of humanity.

    Just my two cents.

    Cow dung!

    India armed the LTTE. Voted against SL at the UNHRC. Indian politicians visit SL uninvited. India has no right to push for political solutions in SL. India last week tested a nuclear capable missile of 5,000 km range. Worse than the North Korean attitude.

    FYI, for these reasons and more, MOST SLs HATE India and LOVE China/Pakistan (always they voted FOR SL).

    Its a shame you don’t understand this basic FACT. It is not surprising. Take Pakistan, Maldives, Bangladesh, Nepal, Burma, Kashmir, Bhutan. The other neighbours of India. SLs share their views on India. No exception.
