Fukushima remains the big news.  The water emergency continues. Prime Minister Abe ‘s focus seems to be the need to fix Fukushima, so that Japan can restart its nuclear reactors, and sell nuclear technology abroad –    rather than recognising the seriousness of the situation.  The “Nuclear Village” is still there in Japan, with Tepco’s powerful connections, money, and control of the media.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Commemmorations continue, and also scholarly accounts of the 1945 bombings, the way that media and governments have reported them  and the reasons behind the bombing.

UK. Russia joins the push to sell nuclear reactors to Britain, as long as the UK guarantees a continued profitable price for them (i.e a public subsidy)

USA. Same old wrangles about nuclear waste – what to do with it. Nevada and USA Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz giving conflicting accounts of waste transport arrangements.    Water problems – Vermont Yankee Nuclear Plant’s heat pollution of Connecticut River.  A Massachusetts town provides all of its municipal energy by renewable sources, plus energy efficiency.   Small Modular Nuclear Reactors – a new report finds them to be economically just not viable

Zimbabwe. Big argument on whether or not they supplied uranium to Iran.

Syria. A dubious report about tactical nuclear weapons being used against Syrian government.  This report was removed from the web, and there has been no more news on this, no substantiation of this story.
