The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Nuclear power industry exists to provide the nuclear weapons industry – theme for December 17

Yes, they’re joined at the hip, and this is now becoming public news. The World Nuclear News spells it out proudly -“ A robust US nuclear energy sector is a “key enabler of national security”, helping the US military to meet specific defence priorities “In Britain, this is revealed in the BEIS  Committee Brexit Inquiry.

The fact that the nuclear power industry supplies essential resources and personnel to the nuclear weapons industry explains why governments are so keen to subsidise this completely uneconomic method of providing electricity.

Of course, the fat cats and shareholders behind both industries are happy to sell nuclear anything to anybody.

We see Russia, especially,  doing financial lending acrobatics to sell both industries to dodgy Middle Eastern and African dictatorships. But the wonderful Western  democracies are not far behind – happy to sell “peaceful” nuclear power to India, for example – a country intent on nuclear weapons expansion.

The nuclear weapons lobby knows damn well, that the first step in selling to a country is to sell (un)commercial nuclear power.
