BUREAUCRAT BUSTERS: WASTE OF NUCLEAR POWER

In the news:

The Swedish government will pay state-owned energy group Vattenfall 4.1 billion kronor (500 million dollars, 426 million euros) in compensation for the closure of a nuclear reactor earlier this year, Vattenfall said on Thursday.

Sweden shut its Barsebäck 2 reactor on 1st June, the second reactor to be taken out of service in the country since 1999 as part of a plan to phase out nuclear power over the next 30 or so years. (TheLocal.se, 11/11/05.)


It would be better if the bureaucrats had been following the same route as the French nuclear-energy company Areva.

I think that the statement by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation is bullshit... What do you think?
