Report summary – Security of nuclear reactors (2017)


The nuclear power plants around us are a sword of Damocles over our heads. A new report by independent experts, submitted to authorities today, questions security at French and Belgian nuclear facilities and points at their vulnerability to outside attacks. These experts alert particularly to a certain type of facility at nuclear plants: the spent fuel storage pools. While these pools can contain the highest volume of radioactive matter in a nuclear plant, they are very poorly protected. Rather than wait for the worst to happen, let’s address this issue and take action.
