Nuclear not the solution


I have posted on Nuclear Energy before, which you can read here. Initially I didn’t know enough to have a strong point of view, but I have read up on the topic and am now confidently anti nuclear.

Just keeping an eye on the news is enough to to keep me strong in this view. Have a look at this selection of recent articles:

Containers for spent nuclear fuel not expected to last as long as they should.

Accidents are standard operating procedure at nuclear power plants even in developed countries.

A recent report exposes problems with safety of pebble bed modular reactors (the type we want to use). (This one might only be available to subscribers, I will try and find another link).

While collecting these links, I noticed a whole lot more articles talking about safety concerns, massive spiraling costs, etc.

This is worse than the Arms Deal.
