6 Summary
The transformation of radioactive uranium and, in some instances, thorium isotopes provides vastly more energy per unit mass of fuel than any other energy source, except nuclear fusion, and therein lies its greatest attraction. The unit considers the advantages and limitations of generating this power and the environmental and security issues that the process raises.

Target Earth: The Grand Scale Problems of the 21st Century
At the start of the 21st century, humankind finds itself on a non-sustainable course - a course that, unless it is changed, will lead to catastrophes of awesome consequences. Severe climate change, water shortages, mass famines, global pandemics, global terrorism... All these mega-problems are interrelated and need a long-term view of the future. They are global problems and cannot be solved by one country alone. This could be humanity's last century, or it could be the century in which civiliz

A New Approach to Nuclear Disarmament: Learning from International Humanitarian Law Success
Achieving an end-state of "zero" has emerged as an important policy goal for a number of 21st Century challenges. The most prominent example is the "Global Zero" campaign to eliminate nuclear weapons. Few issues are more appropriate subjects of humanitarian concern and international humanitarian law than the choice, possession, use and misuse of weapons. A body of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and Disarmament Treaty Law has been built up over the last century to control and prohibit a ra
