BankTrack, in cooperation with a number of working partners, today (26 May 2010) launches, a new website mapping the involvement of 45 leading commercial banks in funding nuclear power projects and companies active in the nuclear sector. These banks include British-based Barclays, HSBC and RBS.
BankTrack considers nuclear energy a grave danger for people and planet. The renewed interest in nuclear energy also poses a severe obstacle to achieving a sustainable solution to the climate crisis.
To coincide with this launch, London Mining Network has published a technical briefing on the health and environmental hazards of uranium. See
