Greenpeace Updated Review Of EU Nuclear Stress Tests

‘The new findings are sobering. In spite of significant investments into safety upgrades following the tests, many vital and known issues were not addressed. Even problems that are being dealt with will take years to be remedied -leaving European citizens exposed to these risks in the meantime. Physicist Oda Becker concludes that where national regulators claim receiving the highest scores for their stress tests, they intend to let reactors continue to run despite known flaws.’ – from Wenisch, Antonia and Oda Becker.
