Brief, balanced and informative piece regarding the referenced issue. Additionally, the reader may find that it proffers a possible manner in which to address the issue of providing energy to distant locales. A worthwhile read, particularly, for those interested in such.

The article is balanced in its attempts to describe the rationale for and the criticisms of putting a nuclear power plant on a sea going vessel headed from an Arctic Port to one of Russia's most remote regions. Its a very brief overview, leaving lots of unanswered questions. One big question is "what could possibly go wrong?"

This is a somewhat surface level piece, but I agree with other reviewers that it remains balanced throughout. I thought this article would be more of the usual fear-mongering and Cold War sensationalism towards Russia, but it does well to state the rationale behind Russia's decision to transport the nuclear powerplant.

A rather short but balanced article on the issue bringing some context. I wish it provided more information about why Green Peace didn't approve - for normal nuclear-power-plants-are-bad reasons or specifically because it is on a ship?
