In this issue of the Monitor:

  • We write about the escalating costs associated with the clean-up of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in the U.S. following the February 2014 underground explosion.
  • Oliver Tickell writes about the UK government's decision to proceed with the Hinkley Point C reactor project.
  • Bilbo Taylor writes about the Australia Nuclear Free Alliance's annual meeting and the struggles of Aboriginal people against uranium mining and nuclear waste dump proposals.
  • Mary Olson writes about plans for 'interim' spent fuel stores in the US.

The Nuclear News section has reports on a study that found increased leukemia incidence near a Belgian nuclear facility; sorting fact from fiction regarding Germany's energiewende; Kuwait's decision to abandon plans for nuclear power; and more. (Please note: the PDF for this issue contains a summary ('Pro-nuclear countries making slower progress on climate targets') of a journal article that was later retracted because of calculation errors.)
