Carnival of Nuclear Energy plus New Blogger
The 124th Carnival of Nuclear Energy Bloggers is now posted at Atomic Power Review.
Once again, Will Davis starts the post with an opportunity to guess "what is this" about a picture from the nuclear past. I thought I knew what this picture showed. I was wrong. Maybe you will do better. Give it a try!
The Carnival contains a link to Gail Marcus of Nuke Power Talk discussing Japan's nuclear future (Marcus worked in Japan). There are two posts on pro-nuclear activism: my post about Vermont and ANS Nuclear Cafe's Laura Scheele on Tennessee.
At Atomic Insights, Rod Adams asks why NRC commissioners chose to have a meeting with anti-nuclear groups, no pro-nuclear groups invited. (I commented on this post that it was Deja Vu All Over Again, since the NRC commissioner did the same thing in Vermont two years ago--met with the opponent groups only.)
Three excellent posts by Brian Wang of Next Big Future about world-wide good news on nuclear energy. Art Wharton at ANS Nuclear Cafe encourages United States leadership in nuclear energy--American leadership is a non-proliferation issue.
Come to the Carnival!
New Blogger for Nuclear Energy: Andrea Jenetta at I Dig U Mining
Those of us in the nuclear industry and nuclear blogosphere know Andrea Jennetta, the founder and publisher of Fuel Cycle Week (FCW). As Jennetta describes FCW: the only nuclear industry publication with a sense of humor, incisive analysis and discernible opinions.
Now Jennetta has started a new blog: I Dig U Mining. This is a terrific blog, with short, pointed posts and great illustrations. Here's a typical post: What's In A Harmless Solar Panel Anyway?
Rod Adams has a very thoughtful post welcoming Jennetta's blog. Her blog will cover a neglected part of the nuclear story: uranium mining. In the same post, Adams also welcomes Nuke Roadie's blog. (I have an earlier post welcoming Roadie.) Both blogs are very welcome!
