I happened across a link to a fascinating blog that started publishing in March titled things worse than nuclear power. The bloggers behind the site provide a hint about their identity with a cryptic subtitle “the take from a couple of MIT engineers”.
The profile linked to the site provides more details indicating that the blogging duo includes a young woman and a young man, both with newly minted advanced degrees in engineering from MIT. Between them, Caroline and Jacob have a wide range of interests that include music, marketing, economics, and Florida Gator football.
Aside: Caroline’s profile photo does nothing to reinforce nuclear or engineering stereotypes. End aside.
Andrea Jennetta might put the writers behind this blog into a slightly different category of engineers than the ones that made her lead off a recent op-ed with the following sentence:
I hate engineers and scientists.
Unlike the stereotypical, rather inept communicators that that Andrea was railing against, Caroline and Jacob can communicate with both clearly written text and nicely selected graphics and photos. Please take the time to check out their site at things worse than nuclear power.
Make sure that you read the most recent post and take a good look at the cute baby bats whose parents were lucky enough to have avoided having their lungs exploded by a close encounter with spinning wind turbine blades.
