Spokesman Dossier

Compiled by Tom Unterrainer

This Spokesman Dossier brings together articles, reports and analysis of nuclear power, its connection with nuclear weapons and public policy published over the course of fifty years.

With contributions from Malcolm Caldwell, Alan Roberts, Tony Benn, Petra Kelly, Rosalie Bertell, Christopher Gifford, Zhores Medvedev, Helen Caldicott, Hachiro Sato, Ian Fairlie, Phil Johnstone, Andy Stirling, Pete Roche and Dave Cullen.

When the world faces the prospect of climate catastrophe, nuclear power is being sold as a safe, clean and reliable alternative source of energy. As these articles reveal, no such claims are true. Nuclear power is expensive, potentially deadly, and intimately linked to the development and maintainence of nuclear weapons.
