Nobel Laureate, Hannes Alfven of Sweden, 1972

Nobel prize winner, Hannes Alfven, made this observation more than 35 years ago. "Fission energy is safe only if a number of critical devices work as they should, if a number of people in key positions follow all their instructions, if there is no sabotage, no hijacking of the transports, if no reactor, fuel processing or reprocessing plant or repository anywhere in the world is situated in a region of riots or guerilla activity, and no revolution or war - even a 'conventional' one - takes place in these regions. The enormous quantities of extremely dangerous material must not get into the hands of ignorant people or desperados. No Acts of God can be permitted." 1972.
