Countdown to Copenhagen: WECF publishes book on Nuclear Energy "The Critical Question"

In both English and German, The Critical Question offers first hand reports from the frontlines of the nuclear fuel chain

04.12.2009 |WECF Press Release




"If you say, you do not know that your steak comes from a cow, people will think you are really stupid – but with energy it is the same." Alain de Halleux, interviewee.

A quarter of Germany´s electricity comes from nuclear power plants.
Those of us at WECF wanted to know what´s actually behind nuclear energy
production. And that is why we followed the path of uranium, the raw material
of nuclear power, from the mine to enrichment and milling through power
production and waste storage across the world.



As a result, we encountered individuals who have been effected by the nuclear
fuel chain. In this booklet, insiders report on their direct experience with
uranium mining and enrichment, with nuclear disasters and with the storage
of radioactive substances. They offer testimony about the internal operation
of nuclear power plants, the use of depleted uranium (DU) munitions in war
zones and the impacts of nuclear fuel reprocessing.

All who testified have one thing in common: They know that the road to the future must be different than the uranium path of the past.

The book can be ordered from wecf at wecf@wecf.eu and will be available at the Copenhagen Climate Summit
