Nuclear option is not the best for transition away from Russian fuels

Rae Street: What on earth does George Monbiot mean when he refers
to small modular reactors as “kinder nuclear technologies”? SMRs are
still vulnerable to accidents and attack (think of what happened in
Ukraine); they still produce more nuclear waste per unit of electricity
than conventional reactors; and there is still no safe, long-term solution
for radioactive waste. Additionally, these reactors will remain dependent
on uranium for fuel – when we know that uranium mining has caused
suffering and death to mainly indigenous people across the world.
