"Mycle Schneider is the director of the 'Plutonium Investigation'
(it is a monthly newsletter, by far the best on nuclear issues) and
as the origin of the scandal gives an account of his investigation
in the issue no. 6-7. Exciting! And in an irrefutable way EDF is collared
for its heavy lies."
Lawyer, Toledo, Ohio, USA
"I've seen your excellent recent newsletter about the history of
plutonium in the U.S., the MOX discussion therein, and checked out
your remarkable website."
Physician and Member of the Executive Board, IPPNW Switzerland
"The Plutonium Investigation bulletins are super good
and useful for the political work and for scientific publications

"Thanks for sending your impressive 'Plutonium Investigation'.
It's a serious and useful work you are doing. Thanks one more time."
Project Manager, Nuclear Communities in Transition and E-TIP, Ecologia,
"Thank you for providing me with information about your [...] Plutonium
Investigation website. Your site is very valuable and I
think that people in many countries should be able to enjoy it. Thank
you again [...] for the information that WISE-Paris offers."

President of the International Institute of Concern for Public Health,
"I appreciate receiving your excellent paper on plutonium in the

"I appreciate these announcements about updates on your site. I also
recently received a hard copy of the Jan/Feb. 2000 edition of "Plutonium
Investigation" which covered plutonium issues in the United
States. It's an impressive publication and I'm glad to have it."
Assistant Director, Foreign Service, Westdeutscher Rundfunk, Cologne,
"Our house - Westdeutscher Rundfunk - is, in term of size, the first
radio and TV station in Germany. And so is the library and press documentation.
But with all these facilities we would not be able to do the research
and documentation as your magazine provides it in a precise, detailed
and extraordinary reliable way."
Labor MP, former Minister of Energy, UK
"Just a little note to thank you very much for sending me a copy
of [Plutonium Investigation UK] which is very helpful
and which I was pleased to have."
Environment Speaker of the SPD Group in German Parliament, Member of
the SPD Board of Directors
"Thank you very much for your excellent report on the contaminated
nuclear waste transports scandal. You have done an excellent job and
helped all nuclear opponents very much."

"I have never seen any periodical quite like Plutonium Investigation.
There are very few resources published in Europe that are available
in English on this subject and Plutonium Investigation
fills this void. It is professionally researched, easy to understand,
timely and informative. It offers updates on plutonium programs around
the world, provides useful points of contact for future research,
and keeps its readers up to date on relevant events. I am delighted
to receive this publication and commend it to all who seek a better
understanding of the plutonium problem and who are impatient with

" Plutonium Investigation (PI) is a useful, timely
and comprehensive source of information and analysis on the plutonium
industry worldwide. PI provides an independent and often unique perspective
on current events. For instance, a recent issue contained the best
account that I've read of the contamination controversy which disrupted
spent fuel shipments all over Western Europe earlier this year.
The information that can be found in PI is especially important today
for analysts and activists in the US, since the Department of Energy
is pursuing an unwise plan to utilize plutonium from dismantled warheads
as mixed-oxide (MOX) fuel in US nuclear plants. PI is a valuable tool
to demonstrate that MOX experience abroad has been considerably worse
than the companies that are bidding to build a MOX plant in the US
Member of the Flemish Parliament, Belgium
"Fortunately, "Plutonium Investigation" restores a little piece of
democracy by filling up a part of this gap. The concise and right
to the point data published in "Plutonium Investigation"
is of precious value for each concerned citizen campaigning for a
sustainable and peaceful nuclear free future."
Program Director STAND (Serious Texans Against Nuclear Dumping), Amarillo,
"Plutonium Investigation" provides STAND with essential
information on the entire scope of the plutonium fuel issue. The concise
in-depth analyses on the European plutonium experience serves as a
framework for countering the misguided efforts of the Texan plutonium
lobby "Plutonium Investigation" is one of those rare
publications where few words are wasted and few sentences can be overlooked.
We hope to see it become a fixture in the world of nuclear publications"
Regional Development Worker, Cumbria & North Lancashire, Campaign for
Nuclear Disarmament, UK
"The Plutonium Investigation published by WISE-Paris
is an invaluable information source for campaigners interested in
developments in the nuclear industry world wide. Accurate and up-to-date
information is imperative if we are to maintain our vigilance and
make the nuclear industry accountable to the political process and
international regulations. I recommend the Plutonium Investigation
to all those who seek to be better informed about, and engaged in

"I received your newsletter today and spent the rest of the evening
reading it with excitement. It was like a documentary film about how
the [contaminated transport] incident got bigger."
New England Coalition on Nuclear Pollution, USA
"There is a lot of interest among nuclear activists in irradiated
fuel transport here in the US. There is also a significant amount
of spent fuel from countries outside the US coming back here. The
"Transport Saga" could help to galvanize some action around the issue,
I think, because while there has been much talk of potential accidents,
there is very little thought here on the potential for contamination
in normal transport. Your well written article could go a long way
toward raising that issue. Since there has just been a small spark
of activity around the shipments coming to California from the far
east the time is right to strike with information that could fan that
spark into flames".
Secretary, Forum Plutonium and member of the National Energy Commission
of the Green Party, France
"The continuous and extended distribution of Plutonium Investigation
is essential to the permanent struggle fought by Forum Plutonium and
the Green Party against the all mighty French nuclear lobby".
Bruno Barrillot Director
Centre de Documentation et de Recherche sur la Paix et les Conflits,
"This publication fills a gap of information in French language on
the problem of plutonium management and its inherent risks and dangers.
There is a real lack of information on this issue in our country and
we need precise and scientific data to keep us regularly alert as
does Plutonium Investigation."
Oxford Research Group, UK
"I've been reading your excellent publication and it occurs to me
that you might be able to help me..."

and I am impressed by their depth and readability."
Nuclear Campaigner, Friends of the Earth, Sydney, Australia

and I thought it was excellent."
Friends of the Earth, South Lakeland, UK

"The information bulletin 'Plutonium Investigation
France' is very good."

day, really impressive."
