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

The only true purpose of small nuclear reactors- to promote the nuclear weapons industry, and hide its costs – theme for December 21.

Small Nuclear Reactors – the Big New Way – to get the public to fund the nuclear weapons industry

so-called “small nuclear reactors”

Downing Street told the Financial Times, which it faithfully reported, that it was “considering” £2 billion of taxpayers’ money to support “small nuclear reactors”

They are not small

The first thing to know about these beasts is that they are not small. 440MW? The plant at Wylfa (Anglesey, north Wales) was 460MW (it’s closed now). 440MW is bigger than all the Magnox type reactors except Wylfa and comparable to an Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor.

Only if military needs are driving this decision is it explicable.

”Clearly, the military need to maintain both reactor construction and operation skills and access to fissile materials will remain. I can well see the temptation for Defence Ministers to try to transfer this cost to civilian budgets,” 

Any nation’s defence budget in this day and age cannot afford a new generation of nuclear weapons. So it needs to pass the costs onto the energy sector.

  1. from Terry Chapman. I think the fires will be worse next summer and, the hurricanes will be worse. Global climate change will be worse. The loser centrist Democratic party, will lose in 2022. The fascists will get in. They will gerrymander and redistrict themselves into permanent power. By 2024 when the deranged , evil stupid , madman is back in power. The whole of the United States, will be engulfed in wildfires floods, hurricanes and nuclear meltdowns. The demon Trump will do a death frenzy blood bath. He will probably use a tactical nuke. So irritational and barbaric. That’s the ways it’s going (comment transferred from a closed post)
