The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Effects of the nuclear industry – environmental risks in 31 countries

Town & Country Planning Association (accessed) 17th Aug 2017, Prof Andrew Blowers: In the first of a series of articles on the local and social legacies of nuclear energy, Andrew Blowers looks at where and why
these legacies have come to pass.

The nuclear industry has left its visible and invisible footprint in landscapes of risk encountered in the 31
countries in which nuclear energy has been developed.

In several countries the mark is, as yet, small, related to one or two operating nuclear
reactors. At the other extreme there are those countries with
long-established nuclear industries, some involved in both the civil and
military sectors, where nuclear operations, including electricity
generation, reprocessing and experimental processes, are intermixed with
redundant facilities, nuclear wastes, and radioactive discharges onto land
and into water and emissions into the atmosphere.  https://www.tcpa.org.uk/journal
