In this issue of the Monitor:

  • Francisco Castejón writes about a hard-won victory for the anti-nuclear movement in Spain: the government has decided not to renew the operating licence for the Garoña nuclear power reactor; it will instead be decommissioned.
  • Detailed reports on the latest chapter of the Toshiba/Westinghouse crisis: the bombshell announcement that the owners of the V.C. Summer plant in South Carolina have given up on two partially-built AP1000 reactors even though around US$10 billion has already been spent on the project. We also consider the fate of the only other reactors under construction in the US: two AP1000 reactors at the Vogtle plant in Georgia.
  • Mary Olson ‒ from the Nuclear Information and Resource Service and the Gender and Radiation Impact Project ‒ writes about the radiation and gender "siren".
  • A report on the pitiful state of the global uranium market.
