106th Carnival of Nuclear Bloggers. It's been an exciting week in nuclear, with Jaczko resignation and the nomination of his successor, and it is great to see the blog Carnival go up. I also want to give Davis a lot of credit for devoting his time to this work during this beautiful and solemn weekend.
Several posts (Atomic Insights, Neutron Economy, Idaho Samizdat, ANS Nuclear Cafe, Next Big Future) discuss Jaczko's departure and the marginal qualifications of his nominated successor. Nuke Power Talk discusses "electricity too cheap to meter"..would that be a good thing? Hiroshima Syndrome describes the Japanese government shooting itself in the foot by objecting the World Health Organization numbers on radiation releases. Yes Vermont Yankee attends an NRC review meeting that has the characteristics of a mob scene. Canadian Energy Issues describes world-wide CANDU construction projects, and what they have learned from the Canadian experience. Next Big Future also debunks the latest "nuclear winter" scenario.
A good Carnival, and worth attending!
