Campaigners fighting moves to create a new underground nuclear dump say Cumbria could become an atomic “sacrifice” zone.
Have your say
The geology is unsuitable. There is a fault line at Hard Knott; this was proven when we experienced an earth quake in Cumbria not too long ago, I think it set off in Ambleside and we felt it on the coast?
We need to think of the future, but just money and jobs that would come in handy now.
Most of these jobs would probably just go to contractors from away anyway; like a lot do now on Sellafield. Spin doctors always make out like it would create a lot of jobs for locals. It may create more opportunities for boarding houses while the dump was being built...And then an awful legacy for future generations to deal with. SAY NO to Cumbria being used as a dumping ground!!!
Vote nuclear dump in West Cumbria!It will provide a few jobs.Then the economy recovers.Then jobs begin to be created in other sectors as has happened after all other recessions throughout history.Then local people reflect on agreeing with the decision to dump in Cumbria and realise what a mistake that was and how it might affect future generations.Then the fat nuclear cat non Cumbrians rub their hands and reflect on how handy the double dip recession was in 2012.How fickle people can be.
When will people realise that the waste is already in cumbria. Is the county a sacrifice zone now? if the waste is to be buried, then PROVIDING THE GEOLOGY AND ALL OTHER FACTORS ARE SUITABLE,why not bury it here? it has to go somewhere. I dont mean to be glib but Cumbria and many of the Fells already contain many many miles of old mine shafts which must add up to a fair size mountain.
