Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

We were, throughout the early days of the disaster, when people were still listening to the stories, being reassured that this was an old plant whose design is no longer used. This is, as made clear in a film made for the BBC by Adam Curtis back in 1992, when it still had a degree of independence, to entirely miss the point. The real question is why these plants were still running if they were not safe: and that is a question about politics not science.

Nice catch. Telling that, as in war, truth seems to be the first casualty. I know it's true in the US, in Germany, i think in Sweden. Wonder about France, and hope for some comment.


Can't wait 'til there's nukes in Romania, Vietnam, Zimbabwe, North Korea.
