The 58th Carnival of Nuclear Energy Blogs is posted at Next Big Future
. As usual, this is a great compendium of the best of the blogosphere. Despite the New York Times snarky article, Dan Yurman points out that bringing Bellefonte on-line
will help TVA achieve its goals of closing coal plants, and the pressure vessel is already available. Will Davis updates Fukushima information
, while Margaret Harding describes lessons-learned
from the Japanese events. In one of my personal-favorite of this week's blog posts, Brian Wang shows that the "babies are dying on the west coast from radiation" scare stories are bunk
. Wang and Scientific American deconstruct the statistical manipulation of Sherman and Mangano, who posted the original story at the Al Jazeera English website. Gail Marcus eulogizes Nobel Laureate Rosalyn Yalow
, a pioneer in medicine who made huge contributions to the use of radiation in medicine. Ms. Yalow succeeded despite the formidable obstacles that she was a woman and a Jew. For obvious reasons, Yalow is the kind of role model that is dear to my heart.
There's more! There's more! A post about the Prime Minister of Japan (nuclear has to be part of the mix in Japan) and a post about progress on the fast breeder, and a post about the leadership of pro-nuclear and anti-nuclear groups. More interesting posts than I can possibly describe!
Come to the Carnival! It's a treat for young and old!
