Reportage 30 years anniversary of Chernobyl
Super Gau / Worst Case Nuclear Accident
In 1996, I was part of the first official Greenpeace Mission going into the 10km Zone in Chernobyl. An unforgettable and truly scary experience.
In the late 70s -Pro Nuclear Power scientists, companies and government officials claimed that the chance of a Super Gau/ Worst Case Nuclear Accident happening, would be estimated anywhere from 1: 10 Million up to a 1 : 100 Million chance per year and plant to happen.
Beginning of 1980s, six years before the Chernobyl Super Gau estimates had arrived at a possible Super Gau ratio of 1: 10.000, which was a 1000 times more and a tiny little bit more realistic .
And finally, after Chernobyl in 1986 and Fukushima 25 years later in 2011, arrival in REALITY.
Today serious experts are talking about the possibility of a Super Gau/ Worst Case Nuclear Accident every 10-20 years
There are about 450 Nuclear Power Plants worldwide.
