Re­ac­tor fall­out raises con­cerns

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

IT IS as­ton­ish­ing – if a lit­tle wor­ry­ing – to think that ra­dioac­tive fall­out from the dam­aged Ja­panese re­ac­tor has now reached Scot­land.

While the ex­perts say the lev­els are very low, it is still a concern that it is in our at­mos­phere at all.

It shows how the whole planet is in­ter­con­nected.

Surely this is an ar­gu­ment against ex­pand­ing the use of nu­clear power and a re­jec­tion of the idea that has been gain­ing cur­rency that nu­clear is al­most a “green” fuel.
