  • We discuss nuclear security concerns in Belgium including a serious sabotage incident at a nuclear power plant in 2014, surveillance of a nuclear worker by terrorists in 2015, and inadequate security at military bases housing U.S. nuclear weapons.
  • Independent consultant Luc Barbé writes about trade union concerns with Belgium's nuclear power program.
  • Michael Mariotte writes about the intervention of James Hansen and Michael Shellenberger in support of Exelon's aging nuclear reactors in Illinois.
  • We summarize the European Commission's 'PINC' report, which looks at Europe's nuclear power industry through rose-colored glasses yet still predicts steady decline.

The Nuclear News section has reports on the Nuclear Energy Conference 2016 held in Prague; events in the UK to commemorate the Chernobyl and Fukushima anniversaries and to build the UK anti-nuclear movement; a new report on intergenerational costs and benefits of different energy choices; and a Platts review on the cost of global post-Fukushima safety enhancements.
