ABSTRACT
The article guides the reader through the past 20 years of Hungarian energy policy development, which is still controlled by the old nomenclature. The officials and the academic circles were and are trying to undermine and make a bagatelle out of the Chernobyl disaster. While, in April 2003 at the Paks Nuclear Power Plant the worst accident after Chernobyl in Europe happened. Even though 3.6 tonnes of fission material has been laying at the bottom of a container close to the reactor for three years, the Parliament gave a green light to life-time extension of the Hungarian nuclear plant.
