Switzerland abandons nuclear Rwanda while the adoption.



Why Switzerland? Why Rwanda? Why are these names so different? Kizito Mihigo sing.

        
As I write these lines, I am glad Switzerland abandon nuclear power in 2034 and very sad to see Rwanda's adoption in 2011.
        
Because I live in Switzerland for nearly 26 years and I am emotionally attached to Rwanda, where my mother is buried and where there is a significant part of my family.
        
Alas, it is thanks to nuclear energy that I can write these lines and I know that if I lived in a village without electricity and without a computer in Rwanda, I am unable to work!
        
But that does not stop me from shaking watching these zombies that haunt the ruins of Fukushima in search of the charred remains of their families and irradiated.
        
And I confess that I have vomited after seeing the exhibition of a series of life-sized photographs of the Chernobyl disaster on the shores of Lake Geneva!
        
Switzerland will now begin looking for alternative energy to replace the nuclear energy so cheap, but oh so sad when the elements of nature are unleashed!
        
In 2034, Rwandans will probably be happy to inform all their homes, their streets, their neon signs at a lower cost. They also dream of using nuclear technology in hospitals, schools ... as in Switzerland in 2011!

Rwanda, Switzerland of Africa, next Fukushima?

        
Rwanda is bordered to the west by 14 volcanoes most of which are active. Small country of 26,338 km2 straddling the region's tectonic Graben. In 2011, it is populated with 11,055,976 inhabitants with a density of 419, 77 inhabitants per km2.
        
What kind of nuclear accident for example due to an earthquake or a volcanic eruption be there to cause a catastrophe such as Fukuyama?
        
The area of ​​Fukushima Prefecture in Japan is 13,782.75 km2 that is exactly half the size of Rwanda. Before the earthquake, followed by the Tsunami that triggered the nuclear disaster in March 2011, it was populated by 671 inhabitants 2056 (with a density of 149 inhabitants per km2).
        
The decision to abandon nuclear energy of the Swiss Confederation was partly dictated by the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl (Ukraine) and Fukushima (Japan).
        
Switzerland has an area of ​​41,284, 57 Km2 and a population of 7,785,806 inhabitants.
        
It has four nuclear power plants (Beznau, Mühleberg, and Goesgen Leibstadt) all located in Eastern Switzerland.
        
To replace nuclear power, it has the choice between solar energy, hydropower and electricity imports where necessary.

Rwanda: Ensuring present and sacrificing the future?

        
Half the power in Rwanda depends on hydropower. Solar resources and methane gas are also used.
        
"By ratifying the treaty on atomic energy, Rwanda wants to strengthen areas like health, water, agriculture and environment, and the country will benefit from an annual loan of $ 70 million provided by IAEA, "said Ms. Ruhamya Parliament.
         «
This will help Rwanda to cope with soaring fuel prices that may gradually have a negative impact on food prices in the country », said Rwandan Minister.
        
The statement said Rwandan President Paul Kagame will promulgate the law within three months.

Nature has endowed the Rwanda enormous energy potential.

        
The sun throughout the year, the methane gas in Lake Kivu, hydropower, geothermal energy in abundance in volcanoes, wind energy, solar energy at will, etc ...
        
The development of solar and wind energy in Switzerland and Germany will certainly lower the price and reduce the solar panels and wind turbines to make them reach for small grants.
        
Rwanda has already the advantage of solar power and was considered "a pioneer of African green" by the German newspaper Tageszeitung in August 2010.
        
It already operates on methane gas from Lake Kivu, the huge quantity is practically inexhaustible.
        
He continues to explore alternative energy sources. But why this craze for a nuclear power that is scary and that developed countries are getting rid painfully!

The bad example of TRIGA 2 Regional Centre for Nuclear Studies (CREN-K) in Kinshasa.

         Built in 1977, TRIGO II (1 MW), which succeeded TRIGA MARK I (10 to 15 kW) built in 1958 by the Belgians in the Mont-Amba with the help of the United States for producing the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima and 6 and on Nagasaki on August 9, 1945 with uranium extracted Shinkolobwe Katanga (Manhattan Project)?

        
Apart from the intriguing traffic uranium enriched in the news between the leaders of DRC and countries of the "axis of evil, North Korea, Libya and Iran", research conducted at CERN K-Have yielded tangible results to justify the cost of calling the operation TRIGA II?
        
Nothing that replacing the reactor's control panel, it takes at least U.S. $ 3,600,000 to replace the control panel and U.S. $ 283,123.20 for the acquisition of a minimum of control equipment radioactive.          Amount that has never produced the General Commission for Atomic Energy, the first director general, Professor Felix Malu wa Kalenga, has died in deplorable conditions.
        
The Congolese state has to pay 175 workers including 50 researchers, 58 technicians and 67 administrative center for a nuclear decay, whose building is threatened by erosion.
        
Who can swear that such a gadget that was the pride misplaced Mobutu does not constitute a veritable sword of Damocles over the heads of 11,446. 771 inhabitants of the city Kinshasa-Brazzaville?

        
Africa has vast renewable energy potential should avoid the use of nuclear energy it can not control and to turn resolutely towards green energy within reach.
        
This is the only legacy that the present generation should bequeath to their children and as said Emile Girardin "To govern is to foresee! "
