The ultimate Middle East missile target: Nuclear reactors

What if a nuke reactor had been the target of Iran’s accurate missile attack on Saudi Arabian oil facilities?

We might now be mopping up a Middle East Chernobyl. Clear lesson: Don’t build more radioactive sitting ducks.

What if a nuclear reactor had been the target of last month’s accurate missile attack on Saudi Arabian oil facilities? We might now be mopping up a Middle East Chernobyl. The lesson should be clear: Don’t build more large reactors in the region. They’re radioactive sitting ducks.

Nuclear Power Must Not Lead to Nuclear Bombs

Enforcement of civil nuclear cooperation peaceful end use pledges and the gold standard: What’s the connection?
http://ow.ly/5gJU50vKl0i

The answer to the problems posed by easy access to nuclear explosives does not lie in nuclear safeguards laboratories. It flows from a realistic assessment of the prospects for enforcement.

The U.S. Is Overflowing With Natural Gas. Not Everyone Can Get It.

"Earlier this year, two utilities that service the New York City area stopped accepting new natural-gas customers in two boroughs and several suburbs... Meanwhile, in West Texas, drillers have so much excess natural gas they are simply burning it off, roughly enough each day to fuel every home in the state"
http://ow.ly/fmGU50uXSgD

U.S. gas production is at a record high, but the infrastructure needed to move the fuel around the country hasn’t kept up. The result is price spikes, uneven distribution and fears of stifled economic growth.
