The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

World’s nuclear industry in crisis – theme for May 2015

Take heart – all who seek clean energy –  the nuclear industry is in a right mess!

Apart from the chaotic state of nuclear economics, and of security, weapons proliferation, public opposition, desperate marketing, frantic agonising over waste disposal , as well as  the drive for public amnesia about Chernobyl and Fukushima –   apart from all that – the nuclear lobby are all wrangling among themselves.

There’s an unseemly public frenzy from all the different reactor corporations to market their respective products. This includes marketing the existing old reactors – to continue running them for many decades, despite their deterioration,- because  this is much more profitable than getting new ones.  And – also – postpones for future generations the massive costs of dealing with the reactors’ radioactive corpses.

Then there’s the drive to sell little reactors, and Thorium reactors –   an absolute nightmare of security concerns in these. And of course, the uranium industry won’t like this.

It’s quite likely that in trying to outdo each other, the nuclear industry will kill off itself faster than any anti nuclear campaigns. AREVA is already offering reactors for sale below their cost price.
