World Nuclear News, June 15, 2011: The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) sees a decade of growth for nuclear power with only a marginal impact from the Fukushima accident. Some of the accident's policy effects have been large and far-reaching - such as the radical abandonment of nuclear power seen in some European countries - but other nations will pursue nuclear technology essentially as before, said a report released this week under the title The Future of Nuclear Energy. Overall, the London-based magazine's researchers reduced their expectations for global nuclear capacity in 2020, but the figure still grows by 27% compared to 2010. Germany's early closure of eight reactors, with the rest following before 2022, makes the only real dent in capacity but this is offset by equivalent new build in France and the USA. Furthermore, far larger new build programs are coming from Russia, India and of course China, which on its own will add almost five times the capacity that Germany plans to shut by 2020 - Growth remains nuclear's future

World Nuclear News, July 5, 2011: The UK government remains absolutely committed to new nuclear power. Without it the nation would be "darker and less prosperous," said the energy minister today. Charles Hendry was speaking at the New Nuclear Build 2011 conference in London, taking the stage after the heads of the three companies that want to build new power reactors. Each of those firms, EDF Energy, Horizon Nuclear Power and NuGeneration (NuGen), thanked the government as well as the safety authority the Office for Nuclear Regulation for a strong and pragmatic national response to the Fukushima accident. "We need to maintain public confidence," said Hendry, noting the basis to achieve this was a response "based on fact and scientific evidence - and the existence of a strong independent regulator" - Britain to return as ‘serious nuclear nation’

The National, September 16, 2011: A race to build nuclear plants in China is outweighing the backlash against atomic energy sparked by the crisis at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi plant, an industry group says. New reactors in China - home to nearly half of all such projects under construction - will help to double the world's nuclear capacity by 2030, the World Nuclear Association, based in London, says in a report - China leading nuclear energy growth

Spiegel Online, September 15, 2011: Germany's decision to phase out its nuclear power plants by 2022 has rapidly transformed it from power exporter to importer. Despite Berlin's pledge to move away from nuclear, the country is now merely buying atomic energy from neighbors like the Czech Republic and France - German 'Energy Revolution' Depends on Nuclear Imports

Mail & Guardian Online, October 7, 2011: South Africa is poised to issue the largest tender in its history -- an estimated one-trillion-rand contract to build six new nuclear reactors by 2030. The energy department submitted its nuclear tender proposal to the Cabinet last month, and Energy Minister Dipuo Peters has been quoted as saying it will finalise the proposal before the end of this year. Bidding will begin next year. Dwarfing the arms deal, which is worth a mere R70-billion, the contract could account for as much as 20% of the world's total nuclear spending over the next two decades - Battle for South Africa's R1-trillion nuclear contract

Australian Mining, November 30, 2011: A group of Australian and Czech companies have come together to develop a thorium fuelled molten salt reactor. [...] Spokesperson for SDH and the Australian/ Czech consortium, Phil Joyce, told Australian Mining that work has already begun on developing a 60MW pilot plant in Prague, with preparatory work on the prototype to be finalised next year. Development is slated to cost around $300 million - Australian and Czech consortium announce thorium joint venture

Atomkraft står for 75% av frankrikes energiforsyning, og nå truer sosialistene og de grønne med å legge ned 24 av landets 58 reaktorer hvis de kommer til makten:

    The Wall Street Journal, January 3, 2012: ...the country's political consensus on nuclear power has begun to crack ahead of the presidential election. France's Green and Socialist parties recently formed a tentative pledge to cut the country's share of nuclear energy to 50% from 75% by 2025 through the gradual closure of 24 reactors. The parties also said they would shut down France's oldest nuclear plant immediately, if Socialist candidate François Hollande is elected president in May. The proposals have been met with outrage by France's ruling UMP party, which says nuclear energy is critical for the country's economy and for independence from foreign fossil fuels - EDF Pegs Nuclear Upgrade Cost at $13 Billion

USA Today, June 16, 2012: Japan's government on Saturday approved bringing the country's first nuclear reactors back online since last year's earthquake and tsunami led to a nationwide shutdown, going against wider public opinion that is opposed to nuclear power after Fukushima. The decision paves the way for a power company in western Japan to immediately begin work to restart two reactors in Ohi town, a process that is expected to take several weeks. Despite lingering safety concerns, the restart could speed the resumption of operations at more reactors across the country - Japan OKs restart of 1st reactors since tsunami

The Nuclear Energy Agency, July 26, 2012: Uranium resources and production are on the rise with the security of uranium supply ensured for the long term, according to a new report by the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). [...] By the year 2035, according to the joint NEA-IAEA Secretariat, world nuclear electricity generating capacity is projected to grow from 375 GWe net (at the end of 2010) to between 540 GWe net in the low demand case and 746 GWe net in the high demand case, increases of 44% and 99% respectively. Accordingly, world annual reactor-related uranium requirements are projected to rise from 63 875 tonnes of uranium metal (tU) at the end of 2010 to between 98 000 tU and 136 000 tU by 2035. The currently defined uranium resource base is more than adequate to meet high-case requirements through 2035 and well into the foreseeable future. [...] While the status of supply and demand is considered from the perspective of technologies in use today, the deployment of advanced reactors and fuel cycle technologies can also positively affect the long-term availability of uranium, conceivably extending the time horizon of the currently defined resource base to thousands of years - Global Uranium Supply Ensured for Long Term, New Report Shows

The Local, August 27, 2012: French Greens reacted angrily on Monday after a government minister described nuclear power as the "energy of the future," casting doubt on a commitment to slash the country's number of reactors. The Greens, minority partners in France's Socialist-led administration, lashed out at Industrial Recovery Minister Arnaud Montebourg for comments in which he lauded France's nuclear industry as a "tremendous asset." "We need energy that is not too expensive," Montebourg said. France is the world's most nuclear-dependent country, operates 58 reactors and has been a leading international proponent of atomic energy. But in a deal with the Greens before this year's parliamentary and presidential elections, the Socialists promised to reduce reliance on nuclear energy from more than 75 percent to 50 percent by shutting 24 reactors by 2025 - Row after minister says nuclear is the future

University of Massachusetts Amherst, August 14, 2013: In two recent peer-reviewed articles, toxicologist Edward Calabrese of the University of Massachusetts Amherst describes how regulators came to adopt the linear no threshold (LNT) dose-response approach to ionizing radiation exposure in the 1950s, which was later generalized to chemical carcinogen risk assessment. He also offers further evidence to support his earlier assertions that two geneticists deliberately suppressed evidence to prevent the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS) from considering an alternative, threshold model, for which there was experimental support. Calabrese’s articles appear in the July 26 and August 4 issues of Archives of Toxicology. Calabrese says, “The regulatory research community needs to hear about this. This isn’t an academic debate; it’s practical, because all of our rules about chemical and low-level radiation are based on unvalidated assumptions and scientific panel decisions made without sound evidence. Now, after all these years, it’s very hard when people have been frightened to death of any exposure whatsoever, to persuade them that we don’t need to be scared by certain low-dose exposures” - UMass Amherst Toxicologist Says National Academy Panel ‘Misled the World’ When Adopting Radiation Exposure Guidelines
