Things appear to be quiet on the global nuclear news scene. Lulled by the present stalemate in USA-North Korea nuclear tensions, the world's media complacently reports on the nuclear weapons build-up going on in USA, Russia, India, Pakistan , and to a much lesser degree China. The main focus of media about things nuclear is the hype about "new nuclear" - Small Modular Nuclear Reactors, (SMRs). So many news items in praise of SMRs - all sounding suspiciously as if copied from industry handout sheets, and all claiming that nuclear is the cure for climate change. Do these journalists ever bother to check on the facts about this claim?
