There is a new web site / blog with a very interesting mission – changing the conversation about nuclear energy in California. Atoms for California is an attractive site run by a person with a unique perspective about the use of nuclear energy in California. His father has worked as a nuclear engineer for Southern California Edison for more than 30 years, so he grew up with a strongly positive view of the importance of nuclear energy.
He now works as an employee of the State Energy Resources Conservation and Development Commission (known in day-to-day language as the California Energy Commission, abbreviated CEC). As stated on his “author disclaimer” page, his efforts to create and maintain Atoms for California are done on his own time and everything on the site reflects his own personal opinions, not those of his employer.
I cannot think of a single state in the US that has a greater need for such a site and for a change in conversation that leads to an eventual change in policy.
Please visit Atoms for California and support the effort!
