Official narrative

"Too cheap to meter", anyone? That was quite a while ago.

Problems

The Guardian reported in 2017 that “Nuclear power is facing existential problems around the world, as the cost of renewable energies fall and their popularity grows. “The maths doesn’t work,” says Tom Burke, former environmental policy adviser to BP and visiting professor at both Imperial and University Colleges. “Nuclear simply doesn’t make sense any more.”” [1]

Risks

The nuclear power industry has never been separate from the production of nuclear weapons, for which reason governments have tended not to perform serious accounting of the potentially disastrous ecological risks.

Whistleblower

Richard Levernier had 23 years of experience in nuclear safety. When he pointed out a major gap in nuclear power safety planning, his security clearance was withdrawn and he was assigned to clerical duties. After some years, he won a legal battle against theis retaliation, which was declared illegal, but his security clearance was not reinstated.

Waste

It has never found a satisfactory long term storage solution for nuclear waste. As of 2015, only one country, Finland, has seriously addressed the problem of permanent storage.[2]

Document:Dishonesty and the Science-Policy Interface1 November 2011Chris BusbyA hard-hitting indictment of Western Scientific Establishments in glossing over the issue of nuclear safety, and attacking those, such as Busby, who are independently researching the effects of ionising radiation on human health. Powerful interests clearly feel threatened by Dr Busby's work and are seeking to suborn the scientific process to their own ends whatever the catastrophic effects on human health of disasters such as Fukushima.
