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

To 5th August – nuclear and climate news

6th August Hiroshima 9th August Nagasaki  – so far these anniversaries are being ignored by the media. But not in Japan.   Japanese children will pass on the history of Nagasaki’s horror nuclear bombing on 9 Aug 1945

The heatwave continues in the Northern hemisphere, but rarely is that awful left-wing term “climate change”mentioned in news reports. It’s affecting all the Northern countries, though there is more news coverage about USA and Europe. Human-caused climate change made heat wave five times more likely.

Much nuclear news about the heatwave, too. The nuclear lobby’s poster boy, France, is copping it, with nuclear reactors having further cuts to their production, their cooling systems being unable to cope. Other countries’ reactors are similarly affected.

Large retrospective study shows the connection between low level radiation and leukemia.

Small Modular Nuclear Reactors (SMRs) now recognised as unviable: governments still pouring money into them.

The insidious toll of climate change heat on workers, and on the economy.

EUROPE.  Centre for Security Studies explains NATO Nuclear SharingNordic nuclear power plants hit by unprecedented heat wave. Europe’s nuclear reactors affected by heat waves.

JAPAN.   Ahead of Olympic Games, Fukushima nuclear power plant gets an extreme makeover. Japan’s NRA plans nuclear wastes burial at least 70 meters deep for about 100,000 years. Fukushima Unit 2 Refueling Floor Work Poses Risks. TEPCO’s Plan For Some Of The More Dangerous Work At Daiichi.  No Long Term Storage Location for Fukushima Daiichi Spent Fuel.

UK£10bn Moorside nuclear power plant plunged into further doubt. Wylfa nuclear power to be very expensive for both taxpayers and consumers. Sorry history of UK’s Moorside nuclear project, and why it might well be abandoned.  Climate change will bring sea level rise – bringing danger to Hinkley Point C nuclear site.

USA.

CANADA. Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) of Canada bribing struggling towns to have nuclear waste dump. Secret transport of nuclear wastes from Illinois to Port Huron?  Canadian university develops new particle accelerator to supply medical isotopes. University of Alberta’s Medical Isotope Cyclotron Facility – medical radioisotopes without nuclear reactor.

SOUTH AMERICA. Latin American and Caribbean nations lead the way towards nuclear disarmament
