Wright,James R.

I have been employed in the nuclear industry since 1946. It is becoming increasingly obvious that safe supply of nuclear sourced energy is an absolute necessity for for future development the world economy. There has been much resistance to development and application of the fission source by ill-informed groups or movements, often based on the problem of spent fuel management. Now that there is clearer acknowledgment of the problems of restricted supply of fossil fuels and the atmospheric problems from combustion of fossil fuels the governments of the USA and Great Britain are both moving to a more positive stance on nuclear plant investment. This brings forward the need to establish a well considered route to spent fuel and fission product handling, disposal and storage.

I would very much like to be informed on the plans, progress and the attitudes of individuals to development of the necessary technologies.

Sincerely, J. R. Wright.
