Uranium Atlas 2020 via Nuclear Free Future Foundation, Rosa-Luxemburg-Siftung, Beyond Nuclear, and International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War

The Uranium Atlas is free to download or to post to your website. View or download here.

The Uranium Atlas tells the global story of uranium through maps, graphics and narratives covering every phase of the uranium fuel chain. The raw material of the Atomic Age was or is mostly mined in African countries, Australia, Kazakhstan and Canada, and the consequences for the inhabitants of these mining areas have been fatal from the very beginning. The victims of global nuclear colonialism are mostly Indigenous peoples whose voices remain unheard. 

July 16 is seared in the memory of New Mexicans: On July 16, 1945, at 5:30 in the morning, scientists from Los Alamos detonated Trinity, the first atomic bomb, in the White Sands desert. Only July 16, 1979, at 5:30 in the morning, the tailings dam of the Church Rock uranium mill broke, contaminating the drinking water of the Dine people. 

We dedicate the launch of the Uranium Atlas to all the victims of July 16. 

The international guests participating in this event are: Makoma Lekalakala (Earthlife Africa, South Africa), Ian Zabarte (Western Shoshone Nation, USA), Sascha Hach (Nuclear Free Future Foundation), and Anna Randon (Navajo Nation, USA). There will be additional recorded statements from Tina Cordova (Trinity Downwinders, USA) and Larry King (Navajo Nation, USA).

Despite the disastrous consequences of mining, arms testing and nuclear disasters, Europe, with 124 nuclear reactors, remains the world’s largest consumer of uranium, while North America is home to another 114 reactors. Not even the economic fiasco of new reactors has been able to sufficiently weaken the nuclear lobby. Uranium mining continues and could be expanded in North America and elsewhere. Meanwhile, radioactive waste – 350,000 tonnes worldwide – keeps piling up with no safe place to go. These and every aspect of uranium’s use – and misuse – are highlighted in the Uranium Atlas and will be presented during the event, which will include a question and answer session with the audience.

    Getting the best way to make money on the Dark Web isn’t hard to do but what you need to know is there are easy ways and there are hard ways. What I mean by easy ways is there are some ways that require very little effort or knowledge and it can be done by just copying and pasting from websites. The harder ways to make money on the Internet involve more research and analysis of a specific niche or theme and even more time spent looking for the perfect links. But all in all you have to be willing to put in the work and the time because with the right research it’s not impossible to make serious money on the Internet.

    Many of those who read this, including me, are often asked to do various online tests and exams at home. And I was faced with the problem that I no longer have enough time for them, and just the desire. I started looking for help on the Internet and came across the pay someone to take my online exam service on this site. After the first use, I immediately realized that this is what I need. For a small price tag, I get a fast and high-quality task completion. I recommend it!
