What the papers say - Herald Tribune

News stand

The boom in nuclear power station construction in the Far East has seen the price of uranium triple to almost £24.50/kg. The International Atomic Energy Agency predicts that more than 60 nuclear power stations will come online by 2020, most of them in China, India, Japan and South Korea.

The Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organisation has agreed to share seismic data - normally used to monitor nuclear testing - with non-governmental organisations. The agency hopes to use the data to construct an early warning system for earthquakes to prevent disasters such as last year's Asian Tsunami. Real time data will be available on request to an alert centre in the Indian Ocean due to open next year. United Nations experts say the system should eventually operate globally.
