In other words, it's time to wrap myself in knots keeping up with the nuclear blogosphere!
Evan Twarog blogs at Atomic Insights
|At the U.N.|
Evan Twarog, Rotary International
President Gary C.K. Huang,
Twarog has been a frequent guest blogger at Yes Vermont Yankee. He participated in rallies for the plant, testified before the Public Service Board, and wrote letters to the editor. Twarog also worked as a summer intern at the Ethan Allen Institute in 2013. He helped with the email program, and he worked on a project model of the electric grid (along with engineer Richard Schmidt). More recently, Twarog won a prestigious competitive scholarship to Renssellear Polytechnic Institute, and won a Rotary Global essay competition. As a result of the Rotary competition, Twarog visited India and recently spoke at the United Nations.
Now Twarog will be blogging at Atomic Insights. Welcome, Evan Twarog!
Atomic Insights Welcomes Energy Northwest Blog
Rod Adams also welcomed Energy Northwest's new blog, Northwest Clean Energy. Since I am the lead blogger at that blog, this is another chance for me to say: Thank you, Rod! Thanks for giving Evan Twarog a great platform, and thanks for welcoming Energy Northwest's blog.
New Blog: Nuclear Defender
I want to welcome a very new blog: Nuclear Defender. You can't help loving a blog showing two cooling towers near a containment dome (looks kind of like a crown) with the motto: "Keep Calm and Use Nuclear." So far, the blog has only one post:The Big Bad Becquerel. This post describes what a becquerel is, how tiny it is, and why nuclear opponents love to reference becquerels. Everything looks big...in becquerels! Nuclear Defender reviews an article about leakage at Fukushima and all those becquerels.
Sigh. It reminds me of my early blogging days, when tritium was always described in the Vermont press in "picocuries" (a trillionth of a curie). Picocuries, Becquerels. Very big numbers....for very small quantities.
I look forward to more posts from Nuclear Defender.
Just Found the Blog: CASEnergy Coalition
|Christine Todd Whitman|
Yeah. My face is red, especially since Yes Vermont Yankee is on the CASEnergy blog roll. At any rate, I just added Clean Energy Buzz to my blogroll. A belated welcome to Clean Energy Buzz!
I encourage you to read their latest post, a clear and informative Halloween look at Who You Gonna Call? Nuclear Energy Mythbusters.
There Isn't Actually A Blog: Energy For Humanity
Energy For Humanity. The founders are Pandora's Promise director Robert Stone, environmental campaigner Kirsty Gogan, and philanthropist Daniel Aegerter. They have no corporate backing, and this group hopes to continue the network and momentum started with the documentary Pandora's Promise.
They have a great website, well worth exploring. However, they don't have a linkable blog, or at least, I don't see one. Still, I urge you to visit Energy for Humanity.
I love to hear all these new voices! All are worth a visit!
