|ANS Plenary Session, from ANS blog|
I returned recently from the American Nuclear Society meeting in Atlanta. The plenary session featured chief executives from many facets of nuclear energy. However, in my opinion, there was a pall over the meeting, due to the recent permanent closing of four American nuclear plants.
I have a blog post up today at ANS Nuclear Cafe: Philosophy, Shale Gas and the ANS Annual Meeting.
In this post, I discuss the statements of the industry executives in terms of the philosophy; Show Up, Pay Attention, Tell the Truth, and Don't be Attached to the Consequences.
|Clearing for a wind turbine|
In this post, Howard looks at local control over energy projects, and discusses when this is a good thing, and when it is the slippery slope to unbridled nimby-ism. The philosophical question: What is a community's "fair share" of a common burden? He includes extensive discussion of wind energy regulations in Vermont.
