And never forget the huge amount of 'low level' waste that goes into the drigg dump at sellafield, polluting the landscape with the hard hats worn by visiting celebs/politicos etc etc etc
And never forget that a lot of that low level waste is medical, either from isotopes used by hospitals, or that have passed through patients. Which is fun for Sellafield, eg-
..radioactive materials leaked into the sea at Sellafield along the entire coast of Norway and water samples have shown up to tenfold increases in such materials as technetium-99
..Technetium-99m is a metastable nuclear isomer of technetium-99 (itself an isotope of technetium), symbolized as 99mTc, that is used in tens of millions of medical diagnostic procedures annually, making it the most commonly used medical radioisotope
Soo.. I wonder if Sellafield is really the source? Nuclear alchemy is fun like that, and also one of those things 'renewables' can't do, ie cheaply/reliably produce medical or industrial isotopes used in diagnostics or treatments.. Yet another of the ways Greens want to kill people, intentionally or otherwise.
But they've spent a long time arguing against nuclear, even though they're now demanding 3-4x more electricity than the UK currently produces to decarbonise our economy. Simplest solution would of course be building more reactors.. And a sensible enrichment/breeding/refuelling programme to create fuel, isotopes, and of course burn waste.
