Belgium will close the Nuclear plants

The two Belgian nuclear sites are located at opposite ends of the country. Doel  Nuclear Power Station is on the northwest side near the port of Antwerp. The  Tihange Nuclear Power Station is to the southwest along the Meuse River.

It will take years to dismantle the nuclear plants .But the government is sure abt it.

There will be no problems with electricity for the future.

As u  might now the Doel Plant is almost in our back garden.

Since the disaster In Fukushima , Japan abandoned its plan for 14 new nuclear plants,and  Germany announced that it would shut down all 17 of its nuclear plants by 2022.  Switzerland followed Germany’s example by agreeing to eliminate its  dependence on nuclear energy by 2034.

Belgium, like these other countries, is confident that its growing energy  consumption needs can be met through renewable sources.

Will i throw Iodine tablets in the toilet?? or will i wait???

    I don’t know how it is there but thus far the renewable energy sources have been woefully expensive and inefficient to manage the demand. Removing the other sources of energy thus far would cause a skyrocket in cost and not provide for the needs. I always felt if they could come up with something that would not only work but be more cost effective it would be great but for now it’s more of a political game then a practical solution…at least here from what I’ve read about thus far.

    Hang on to the tablets hun – just because Belgium is throwing off the nuclear energy demon doesn’t mean all countries will and as Chernobyle proved: Shit really can happen in other countries and still affect you!!! 😦

    Love ya loads!

    Prenin.

    • chicasl10 says:

      indeed shit can happen ervywhere Ionce wrote abt what to do with all the nuclear waste
      Put it in cement 3 meteres thick hmmmm what to do Prenin

      • prenin says:

        The latest idea for nuclear waste disposal in the UK is to drive a tunnel down into bedrock and bury the waste in copper cans surrounded with clay so nothing can leak out.

        It’s a good idea so long as nobody tries to dump ‘other’ waste down there like Nerve gas and toxic chemicals…

        Love and hugs!

        and they dont have a clue how long the safety is garanteed Prenin

      • prenin says:

        They do know how long the radioactive material must be stored – 10,000 years!!! 😦

        Love and hugs!

  3. Nuclear power is only just being seen since Japan how we know nothing of how to deal with an accident.. And how many are built upon the coastlines.. ,,
    There are lots of alternatives out there.. and Im pleased at last Nations are seeing sense..
    We in our home are thinking about installing Solar Panels very soon..
    Thank you for bringing our awareness to this subject MJ..
    Hugs to you Sue xx

      solar panels hmmmm well in Belgium they gave kind of bonus when u install them But now they stopped and u cant get any profit.Only it will lower the costs of energy Butprofit is only after around 10 years and at that time u need new ones???
      its not a hot item here anymore.In the Netherlands government starts now with bonus But for how long..Government has not that much to spend anymore cos of crisis. Will see Sue

      • Hi MJ, the company that is due to install them is getting Government backing, I think all new homes should be built with them installed, it is crazy not to use Free Energy this way… Even here in UK where Sun isnt all that good it is still making energy savings per household…
        Let us hope we soon see improvements in these areas MJ.. Love and Blessings for a good weekend xx Sue xx

      • chicasl10 says:

        well to buy the solar panels u need around 14.00 euro Not many ppl can buy these
        the governmenet stopped the bonus So what to do?

  4. I’d wait re the iodine tab’s if I was you. Japan’s started up it’s N-reactors despite fierce protests and Fukushima isn’t stable. It wouldn’t take much to set it off all again and it would be much, much worse next time. Well done to Belgian. It’s a shame Japan’s government believe they cannot afford to be without their volatile n-power stations sitting so happily on fault lines…No…hang onto the iodine tablets, you will undoubtedly need them sooner or later.

    • chicasl10 says:

      Uknow what Japan did with the money they got from fundraising????
      they supported the whales hunters with the money instead of the tsunami victims
      Horrible news Understand who can
      I cant.

    I Hate nuclear energy it’s unuseful tu us.
    I think sun and wind can give us, all energy we’ve need, without destroying our wonderful planet.
    I wish you a great week end my dear friend less hot then here is.
    love and hugs

    • chicasl10 says:

      Enjoy the weekend

    It would seem that while Belgium are getting rid
    of their nuclear reactors, here in the UK thay are
    thinking of producing more 😦

    So how crazy is that?

    Hey whatever happened to
    the much friendlier wind turbines? 🙂

    Have a lovely rest of the weekend Sweeti 😉
