Nuclear proliferation experts are warning that 50 years of policy designed to limit the spread of nuclear weapons is unravelling as governments invest in certain small modular reactors that could be misused to build bombs.

The concerns are aimed at Moltex, a Saint John, N.B., nuclear startup building small modular reactors (SMRs) that will be powered with spent fuel from CANDU reactors. To make the fuel, Moltex plans to separate plutonium from uranium in CANDU waste and use the extracted plutonium to power new SMRs.

In the midst of all the ink being used to follow Palestine-Israel developments, this article stands out for putting things in a broader geo-political perspective--or at least attempting to do so.  Of course, I don't know how accurate it is, because I don't normally keep track of all the intricate connections discussed.

Capitalism is killing us, Quick add more capitalism

It seems that among the highest circles of capitalist finance, the ecological transition no longer garners the same level of support it once did. A growing faction among wealthy capitalists is challenging what they call the excessive rigidity of the measures needed to reduce polluting emissions. The idea now in vogue is that the green transition is taking place too fast, creating a risk that rising production costs will become unsustainable.

Nonetheless, supporting imperialist violence in the name of leftist values is not a solution.The interests of people must be foregrounded in leftist peace policy.
