The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Nuclear power industry at last admitting its connection to nuclear weapons

Energy Collective 13th September 2017, The nuclear power industry, under pressure economically, is arguing that it
deserves government support because it is essential for “national
security”, notes Jim Green, editor of the Nuclear Monitor newsletter.

Green explains why he finds this argument disingenuous and unconvincing.
The nuclear power industry has long maintained that it has no connection
whatsoever to nuclear weapons proliferation. This argument was always based
on lies and half-truths.

Ironically, the nuclear industry is now admitting they were not telling the whole truth. Its proponents are arguing it
deserves public support precisely because it is essential for national
security reasons! Some of them are adding a peculiar twist to their
argument: they are saying that a strong nuclear power sector needs to be
maintained in western countries so that they can maintain a capability to
constrain the proliferation of nuclear weapons.
