Nuclear City, PDM 11 "coming soon"

«As a nuclear power - as the only nuclear power to have used a nuclear weapon - the United States has a moral responsibility to act.»

Barack Obama

The energy is certainly one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century. Nuclear power has long been an energetic response to this dilemma. In fact, this is a way to create energy without CO2 excess emission by maintaining a good performance. However, since the nuclear accident in Fukushima, the atom is in question. Several countries around the world, like Switzerland and Germany have begun some programs to dismantle nuclear facilities.

Dismantling a nuclear plant is in most cases total: it disappears as quickly as it appeared. In retrospect, what were the consequences of urban, social, political and territorial settlement of the nuclear infrastructure? Then, considering that zero risk does not exist. What will become the standards for implementation and security? Is there not an alternative than to destroy them? Can we possibly imagine their conversion through others programs?

Various examples have already been designed: the park "Wunderland" in Germany, or close to Lausanne, the transformation and redeployment of the Experimental Nuclear Plant in Lucens in a deposit and shelter for the Cultural Heritage of Canton of Vaud. And we can not forget one of the most successful conversions: the «Tate Modern» in London which was once a coal power station.

Overseas, the U.S., holders of the largest atomic park in the world have o take some measure with the Indian Point Nuclear plant. This one is placed on the top of list of the most dangerous plants in the world because of its proximity to the city of New York and the high degree of natural disaster in this region. Recently, the presence of this plant has been questioned by various non-governmental as well as a slice of the Congress of the United States. What could happen to this nuclear plant?
