Reiach and Hall gets green-light for £20m nuclear archive


Marc Massin : what a crass and ridiculous comment. The archive encompasses the history of the whole civil nuclear industry and its installations. How else is anyone supposed to know how potentially highly hazardous reactors were built and thereby find out how they can be decommissioned safely if the information is not preserved and made accessible? I'm a librarian and one of the huge issues when nationalized industries were privatized in the 80s was a loss of information on their research work and on their buildings and facilities. We reap the repercussions of this still, not least in the construction industry when we have to find out about how their buildings were made. At least the nuclear industry did not destroy this information, perhaps because for a long time it remained in public ownership and the decommissioning and waste issue had always been a cloud on the horizon. And why does the text editor convert all my -ises to izes? We are in the UK after all......
