As you all read there was a leak in one of the pipes at Nuclear plant in Krško, so the plant was slowly shut down and the event was reported to all nuclear institutions around Europe. Today I watched news and I can’t believe what a big circus happened around a faulty valve. Austrian TV even declared that a cloud of radiation could reach them. And then Austrian institutional for nuclear safety received a notice that it’s just an exercise whereas whole Europe had a nuclear alarm.

Anyhow today I was commissioned by Greenpeace from Hamburg to escort them and document their work. We met also a UGO group from Viena Global2000.at Greenpeace and Global2000 had Geiger counters and GPS so we were walking around nuclear plant, measuring radioactivity. The radiactivity level was zero or it was solely natural radioactivity.

  2. What a nice president Bush…

    Now I know why he is comming to Slovenia…

    He will bring us atomic bomb shelter.

    So our PM Janša and all important EU members can take shelter and fly in US in case of emergency 🙂 😉

    We are so lucky to have USA on our side…

    Jean Pistoff Čefur now is your turn to comment this nuclear disaster that we are facing…

  4. In dejansko ni bilo niti pikice povečane radiacije.

    Ja, sem enega vprašal kakšna je razlika med Avstrijcem in Slovencem….
    Slovenci imamo v kleteh vino.

  5. cela hajka in selitev medijskih hiš na Krško polje samo zaradi enega ventila. Po dolgem času imamo tudi Slovenci svoje Međugorje. Reporterjem pa za popotnico vsakemu flašo rdečega antibiotika!

  7. Ja enden meri drug izmeri GPS koordinate tretji pa četrti pa sta tam za verifikacijo…

    Kaj nisi nobenga filma gledal ko lansirajo nuklearne rakete?? Mora kapitan najprej dat ključ not potem pa prebere “secret question” nato pa še dva pomočnika prebereta in potrdita če je vse vredu in šele nato dajo green light za lounch 😉 🙂

    Ko gre za radiacijo ne smeš verjeti le eni osebi… 😉

    Morata vedno bit še dva odgovorna zraven…

    Sej isto je tudi pri gradbenikih… eden koplje, dva pa slonita na lopatah in nadzorujeta…

    🙂

  9. hehe, sem pa bil v Kazahstanu na “gagarinovi rampi” in moram rečt da je bil celoten postopek bolj rusko narjen: ročno paljenje na stikalo 150 metrov stran 😀

    mah amerikanci so pa itak softiči, cape canaveral nardi celo hajko če se pred izstrelitvijo veter poveča za 1,5 m/s

  13. Well as a good host let me try:
    “I was in Kazakhstan on “Gagarin’s launch ramp“ and I must say the whole procedure is very Russian made: Ignitioning by a hand switch 150 m away.

    Americans are softies, and Cape Canaveral makes whole circus if before the lunch wind increases for 1,5 m/s
