Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Britain's Sellafield (aka Windscale) is a nuclear storage site, an erstwhile nuclear weapons production plant, nuclear reprocessing center, and nuclear power plant, currently in the process of decommissioning. Due to accidents, chronic emissions, and overflows at Sellafield, the nearby Irish Sea is deemed the most radioactive sea on Earth.

not to get too game theory about such a terrible tragedy, but how much bigger does this clusterfuck have to get before the very idea of doing anything but closing down all nuclear plants and studying harder what to do with all the ageless poison we have created to run out electric toenail clippers and such, becomes so screamingly obvious that it becomes unthinkable?

and then we can fully focus on coal...
