"Like telling fingerprints, the wastes we leave behind characterize our human civilization. They show the ways in which we live and how we care for the world around us."

In this way, Abel J. Gonzalez, Director of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), began his article, "The Safety of Radioactive Waste Management, Achieving Internationally Acceptable Solutions," in the IAEA Bulletin, Volume 42, No 3, 2000.

The Bulletin features radioactive waste in this issue and includes articles by Gonzalez; Mohamed ElBaradei, Director General of the IAEA, Alec J. Baer, Chairman of the International Nuclear Safety Advisory Group, Roger H. Clarke, Chairman of the International Commission on Radiological Protection; and others.

The Bulletin can be found on the IAEA website.
