In this issue of the Monitor:

  • We update the situation at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in the US following the serious accident in February;
  • Engineer and whistleblower Evert van Amerongen writes about the dangerous hypocrisy of Dutch nuclear legislation;
  • We summarise the latest World Energy Outlook report of the International Energy Agency; and
  • We summarise the uranium agreement between the Nigerien government and Areva.

The Nuclear News section has reports on a Lifetime Achievement Award for Michael Mariotte of the Nuclear Information & Resource Service; a waste transport ship fire in the UK; leaked photos revealing the decrepit states of nuclear waste storage ponds at Sellafield in the UK; 143 states support a UN resolution calling for DU clean-up assistance; and in Germany, activists held up a uranium train in Hamburg for seven hours, and authorities performed poorly in a nuclear accident training exercise.
