THORIUM is NOT
"green"....., NOT "safe"...., NOT "peaceful".
By Massimo Greco
According to an
article written by Gordon Edwards, and
diffused through Beyondnuclear.org (here
the Pdf) and then through RNA for
social networks, there are "many
exaggerated claims made by promoters of
thorium-based nuclear reactor technology"
as an alternative to the present
generation of uranium based reactors.
One of those claims is that the use of
thorium "fuel" instead of uranium fuel
eliminates the threat of nuclear weapons
proliferation because "thorium-fueled
reactors" do not produce plutonium as a
"This claim is profoundly misleading",
writes G. Edwards.
«ALL the "claims" of thorium supporters
profoundly misleading» WE
can add now.
Until a few years ago, on the net, it
was almost impossible to find
informations about thorium in
contradiction with the propaganda put in
place by many sources often
characterized by a strong conspiracy
that was leveraging the ramblings
against the "NWO" or on "Chemtrails" or
... against vaccinations .. or other
deliriums based on "HAARP conspiracy"...
It was extremely discouraging to see how
all areas of the antinuclear activism
were unprepared to disprove the massive
campaign launched through internet.
Only to try... to cast doubt on some
statement spread by enthusiastic
supporters of thorium (as green and
miraculous...) it could lead to take
violent insults, isolation campaigns on
the social networks.. and actions for
censorship or hacking websites with any
positions not comply. And we have to
admit that today is still so, even if in
recent years something new is happened.
On the web and among anti-nuclear
activism have multiplied documentations
and the positions taken, anywhere, in
Asia, Australia, United States, and
especially in Italy thanks to alarming
news events and initiatives of the
On May 12, 2011, State Prosecutor
Domenico Fiordalisi opened a court case
to stop all military use of the Quirra
base. Hundreds of shepherds and farmers
demonstrated against the case because
they might lose use of their land. The
nuclear physicist Evandro Lodi Rizzini
of Brescia University and CERN (European
Organization for Nuclear Research) found
elevated levels of radioactive thorium
232 and cerium (proving that the thorium
was man-made) in the tissues of 15 of 18
bodies of Quirra-area shepherds who died
of cancer between 1995 and 2000.
On March 24, 2012 Fiordalisi indicted
twenty people on charges of "willful
omission of precautions against injury
and aggravated disasters or because they
falsely certified the absence of
pollution with the aim to "hide the
environmental disaster." The documents
from Fiordalisi's investigation have now
been turned over to a tribunal for
2014. New investigation at Cape Teulada
The Shocking results of the
investigation into the polygon of

over the allowed limit.
A new Magistracy investigation.
According to the assumptions of the
prosecutor, the presence of the
radioactive isotope "Thorium 232" would
be due to the massive use of "Milan"
It is the first result that emerged in
January during the investigation on the
pollution in Sulcis conducted by the
public prosecutor Emanuele Secci. The
datum, extremely worrying, reveals a
clear analogy between the situation of
Teulada and the other, more popular, of
Quirra, which has generated a
prosecution with twenty defendants. But
the situation seems more serious.
For now, the certainty in the hands of
the prosecutor is that the citizens of
Teulada have breathed, for years, and
perhaps still breathe, the dangerous
metal fabrication spread by the Milan
missiles, the use of which in the war
games was lifted first in France and
then in Italy ..
Milan missiles were used by the Italian
army until 2003, when they were
decommissioned after notification from
French Defence, who had denounced the
toxicity of thorium. However, the fact
that Milan missiles are not used for
over ten years is not a reason for
As emerged from the consultancy of
Professor Lodi Rizzini in the
investigation of Quirra, thorium reaches
the maximum level of toxicity after
about twenty years. In short, still in
Teulada and around military and
civilians continue to contract tumors
due to missiles used twenty years
earlier. Just at Quirra, for example,
between the mid-80s and the end of the
90's would be used about 1,200 missiles
Milan. In all probability, therefore, in
Teulada the use of these weapons was
even more massive.

In a night of July 2013,
a shipment of nuclear material, a part
of 84 irradiated fuel elements of
uranium-thorium stored in the
ENEA-Trisaia Rotondella Research Centre
(MT), has left Italy and was delivered
to the United States of America. The
news is confirmed by influential members
of the Italian Government and in
particular by the deputy minister of the
Interior, Filippo Bubbico.
According to the "Plant History"
published on the Official web page of
SOGIN "The Itrec plant which stands for
Impianto di Trattamento e
Rifabbricazione Elementi di Combustibile
(Treatment and Remanufacturing Elements
of fuel Facility), is located within the
ENEA-Trisaia Rotondella Research Centre
(MT). The plant was built in the period
between1965-1970 by the CNEN, Comitato
Nazionale per l'Energia Nucleare
(National Committee for Nuclear Energy).
Between 1969 and 1971, following an
agreement between the CNEN and the U.S.
USAEC United States Atomic Energy
Commission, 84 irradiated fuel elements
of uranium-thorium were transferred to
the plant from the experimental Elk
River reactor (Minnesota). Plant
research had been conducted on the
process of remanufacturing and
reprocessing of the uranium-thorium
cycle to check for possible technical
and economic benefits with regard to the
uranium-plutonium fuel cycle normally
used. In 1973, the CNEN took ownership
of the 84 fuel elements of Elk River, of
which 20 were retracted. In 1987,
following the referendum on nuclear
power, activities were interrupted."
"activities were interrupted" ?????
"Activities" are still active!!!!
And the facts of last July, in 2013, are
confirming that they never stopped
Wikileaks cables about Thorium in
Italy: the mystery behind the spent
nuclear bars from Elk River (US) stored
in Basilicata since 1970.
The cable, entitled “Italy national
elections subject: disposition of Elk
River spent nuclear fuel: letter from
under-secretary of the Council of
Ministers Gianni Letta to ambassador”,
describes the attempt of undersecretary
of the council of ministers Gianni Letta
– Berlusconi’s right hand man – to send
nuclear materials stocked in Matera (Southern
Italy) back to Elk River (Minnesota,
In the cable, Spogli reports an excerpt
of the letter that Letta sent him: “Dear
Mister Ambassador, I am writing you to
call your attention to an issue about
which your embassy has probably already
It is a very important issue for the (Italian)
government even from the psychological
point of view. We will soon be sending
our nuclear waste currently stored in
Piedmont and Emilia Romagna to France.
The spent fuel will remain in France
until 2025 at least, when Italy should
have its own nuclear waste storage site.
This is causing protests in the South”.
On the 12th and 13th of June 2011, in a
referendum the Italians voted against
the abrogation of the law that in 1987
closed all nuclear plants in Italy.
At the time when that law was approved,
Italy was facing the aftermath of the
Chernobyl catastrophe, that led to
thousands of deaths and the poisoning of
an entire area of eastern Europe after
the explosion of a nuclear plant in
The Italians, horrified by what they
were seeing, decided through a
referendum to get rid of nuclear energy.
In the years that followed, the
situation remained unchanged, until the
early 2000, when the second Berlusconi
government for the first time in twenty
years reopened the discussion around the
possibility to bring back the nuclear
energy in Italy.
But so far, the government had always
faced a fierce opposition from parties
and anti-nuclear groups. In 2003,
150,000 people joined a demostration
against the construction of a new
nuclear plant in Scanzano Jonico (in the
Southern-Italian region of Basilicata),
in what has been described as one of the
biggest protest against the comeback of
nuclear energy in Italy.
The point of the anti-nuclearists was
that Italy was still struggling too much
to find a proper way to process the
spent fuel from the nuclear plants that
were turned off in the Eighties, to be
ready to open brand new plants safely.
