Safe Energy (1991 - 1998)

Successor of SCRAM, a magazine published by the Scottisch Campaign to Resist the Atomic Menace, which, in its later years, had the subtitle Safe Energy Journal. "We feel that the Safe Energy title better encapsulates the journal's content". SCRAM continues to supply both nuclear and alternative energy news and features.
From 1995 on Safe Energy (or The Safe Energy Journal as it was renamed) was published by Friends of the Earth Scotland.
Safe Energy was published bi-monthly for the British anti-nuclear and safe energy movement from August 1991 to June 1998; a total of 33 issues.
Scram is also the term for shutting down a nuclear reactor in an emergency.
