Greenpeace Ignores Tibet’s Nuclear Poisoning via Tibet, Activism and Information

The world’s most high profile environmental organization, with a network of international offices and serious resources at its disposal is investing considerable time, effort, thought and finances into developing its Greenpeace-China operations.

With headquarters in Beijing and Hong Kong, it campaigns on a range of environmental issues in China, including industrial, agricultural, water and atmospheric pollution. Yet one area of significant environmental concern in China and occupied territories such as Tibet and East Turkestan, which Greenpeace-China does not campaign upon, is nuclear issues. It would appear that Greenpeace does not recognize the existence the considerable ecological damage caused by nuclear production, and uranium mining and the disposal of radioactive waste within China and the occupied territories of Tibet and East Turkestan.


Mainland China has 20 nuclear power reactors in operation, 28 under construction, and more are scheduled, which intend to produce a sixfold increase in China’s nuclear capacity. Yet, as Greenpeace’s record testifies it exercises anti-nuclear protests around the world


Currently a heavy importer of uranium, China is engaged in a determined effort to secure deposits within territory under its control. Significant amounts of the ore have been located in Eastern Tibet in Amdo (so-called Qinghai Province particularly in so-called Gansu Province). The China National Nuclear Corp operates in that region, and in 2008 agreed a new contract for further exploration

“The laborers have no understanding of health protection or prevention.Those kids sit on the uranium ore to smoke and eat their steamed buns, and at night they even set up their cots inside  and sleep in the uranium caves. I’ve told them that stuff could give people lung cancer, but they don’t understand any of it.”.

(Comments of mine employee working at No. 792 Mine located in Gansu’s so-called Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, one of China’s most important bases for uranium. This area was historically part of Tibet’s Amdo Region)

All forms of uranium mining, and the milling of ore, generate serious environmental hazards to the hydrosphere and atmosphere, waste deposits often dumped into heaps release radioactive dust particulates into the atmosphere and pollute a huge area. Two methods in particular, which are used in China, cause grave concern.’Leaching’ and ‘open pit’ extraction of uranium have resulted in radioactive contamination of soils and rivers. Not that Greenpeace appears troubled, despite these forms of mining posing a grave health-risk. Details of these mining methods, their environmental impacts, and health risks may be viewed on a slideshow here:

The deadly hazards of nuclear pollution is also suffered by First Nations peoples in the USA, which was documented in the film ‘Posion Wind’:


A UK television documentary ‘Death on The Silk Road’ (Channel Four 1998) secretly filmed inside East Turkestan documented a range of illnesses linked to radiation exposure. Yet Greenpeace keeps a shameful silence, even though it would be aware of the detailed material which continues to document the extent and nature of environmental problems resulting from China’s nuclear industry, both commercial and military.

    Very good post.
    There are many strong private and public universities in the United States. Private universities are the oldest (Harvard Yale Princeton), and they still exist. Tuition, grants for research, and voluntary contributions provide funding. Although public institutions are generally less expensive than private ones, they often charge additional fees for students from other countries and states.. Colleges are some of the most prestigious institutions in America, such as Swarthmore College and Amherst College.

    Very good post. The ability to Change Majors in USA is very useful.
    Undergraduate students are used to changing their majors after they have been accepted. If a program is very popular or highly selective, another application may be necessary, but this is not common. While changing a major can mean that you will need to spend more time completing the new field requirements before you are eligible to graduate, it allows students to choose the program that best suits their needs.

    How to do PhD in India as soon as the PhD notification comes is a big confusion for many aspirants. In order to do PhD, fill in an online application from the university website and if the admission department satisfies with the grades mentioned in the application form, you will be called for PhD entrance test. After passing the entrance test, you should undergo PhD interview (DC) Committee and later on you will get admission once cracking all these stages. Doing PhD in India under Government University is a long-term process. So the easy way to get PhD in India is to join in a State Private University which is recognized by UGC Indian laws. State Private University PhD’s are valid and you can finish in 3 years of time whether it is part time PhD or full time. So join in a State Private University.

    The easy way to get PhD in India is to approach a good PhD consultant or just apply for PhD and do it directly on your own.There are many Universities in India which have some consultants who charge money for easy PhD. You do not need to go to those universities but rather visit 2 or 3 times during the full duration of the PhD program. You will get awarded if you offer the consultant 250000 rupees. This is my direct experience with one consultant asking me. But I never joined in such universities. You will never have value with such a degree.
