Taking the bloom off of the 'nuclear rose'

In 1971, New York Times called nuclear energy the only available choice.

In 1973-74 powerful people in the US wanted to take advantage of the 400 percent oil price increase, but they were worried about the impact of a growing nuclear industry. 

Some of them might have taken positive direct action to halt that growth.

Kirk - do you have access to the whole article? If not, would you like a copy? It is worth reading, especially given our perspective from more than 40 years worth of "water under the bridge".

Reengaging with Atomic Insights Google+ page after 18 month hiatus. Noted many tool improvements and decided it was time to use the service more often.

Why, welcome back. :)

I kinda like Google+ myself – for one, I like how it allows the use of bold and italic fonts in posts. I tend to use it for sharing more "serious" stuff, and leave the cat pics for Facebook.

By the way, is there any Google+ group about nuclear power you'd recommend joining? I find that I've got much more up-to-date with the robotics industry since joining the #Robotics group, was wondering if there was some equivalently active group on the nuclear front.

Atomic Insights visited an NRC and Army Corps of Engineers joint public meeting about the environmental impact of building a two unit nuclear plant near Gaffney, SC. Duke Energy's Lee project is currently scheduled to receive its COLA in late 2012 and plans to use the recently certified Westinghouse AP-1000 standardized reactor design.

Why did ExxonMobil change its corporate tune about CO2 and climate change sometime around 2009?

Many people misunderstand radiation. Robert Hargraves decided to do what he could to improve understanding of that important natural force. Please check out his new brochure Radiation: The Facts

Hi!  A Google+ search for Galen Winsor and you'll see some of my posts.  I just created a Wikipedia stub article because i thought that it is worth having an Open Discussion on his claims from the info available https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Acrosscanadatrails/Galen_Winsor

Dr. Wade Allison recently visited the Fukushima area of Japan. What he saw reinforced the importance of establishing reasonably international radiation safety standards based on avoiding harm rather than based on getting as close to background as possible. He called such standards - As High As Relatively Safe.

If applied in Fukushima, these standards would allow people to go back home and live full, safe, comfortable lives in their homes if that is what they want to do.

Energy for the rest of us
Introduction
Atomic energy has the potential to improve planetary heath, human wealth, and generational equity. It must be more completely understood and better used.

This site is one small effort to make progress towards the coming Atomic Age.
