CREDIT WHERE IT’S DUE: I was hard on Ted Turner during the St. Helena Island Gullah-land-grab incident. But it looks like he’s doing something right here — though whether the uranium in question is really “weapons grade” (as the Guardian story states) without further enrichment is doubtful. I’m unaware of any reactor fuel rods that use truly weapons-grade uranium, though I don’t pretend to universal knowledge, and an “research reactor” might be an exception; I know of research reactors that use plutonium at high degrees of enrichment.

Regardless, this is money well spent, and Turner is the one spending it. Bravo.
