"Wie ist das mit den Atomkraftwerken wirklich?", 1976 booklet
By change, Austria is free from nuclear energy. In the 1978 referendum the Austrian population voted against the AKW Zwendendorf (50.5% of voters said no) - a fully functional power plant located 38 kilometer to the west of Vienna. In 1976, the Austrian anti-nuclear movement published a little booklet to inform people about the risks of nuclear energy. It is astonishing, however, how clear the movement has already been about the threats of nuclear plants - facts, were nuclear campaigners still look away.
The 1976 graphic explains #1 the problems of uranium mining (emission of gas, 1 ton of uranium causes 2000 ton of excavated material), #2 the threats of isotope separation, #3 the danger of operating a nuclear power plant (transportation, terroristic attacks, accidents, emission, ..), #4 nuclear reprocessing and finally #5 the problem of nuclear waste.
Crazy, 35 years later, we are still no step ahead in the matter.
