Areva and Helen Caldicott
Helen Caldicott recently went to Canada to talk about uranium mining. She called the nuclear industry "immoral" and compared it to Hitler. On a radio show, she refused to back up her statements, becoming angry instead. The radio interviewer wrote that she “sounded like a person unhinged.” Today, I was pleased to see Jarret Adams of Areva refute her statements about Canadian mining in his blog post: Helen Caldicott Stays One Step Ahead of the Facts.
Okay, the rest of the names are Jack Gamble (next to Rod) and Steve Aplin (next to Jack) and a very knowledgeable Areva manager at the left side of the picture. I am so sorry I don't have his name in front of me! I guess that is why you can amend blog posts.
Update: We are standing in front of the Melox facility, and the man on the left is Regis Faure of Areva. Thank you to Jarret Adams for this update!
Do read Jarret's post: Helen Caldicott Stays One Step Ahead of the Facts.
More About Hurricanes
Since I have already mentioned Rod Adams, I want to say that Margaret Harding, William Davis and I were on Rod's most recent podcast. Atomic Show #190: Nuclear Plant Performance During Hurricane Sandy. I linked to the announcement of the podcast. Here's a link to the podcast itself. It was a great discussion. I learned a lot from Margaret Harding's honest, blunt and basically optimistic discussion.
Meanwhile, my blog post Hurricane Sandy and Nuclear Plants in the Main Stream Media has been posted at The Energy Collective. I am always proud when they choose one of my posts.
