The month of November is chock full of nuclear energy related conferences. I was fortunate enough to attend four informative and professionally engaging events. Unfortunately that left little time for gathering friends together to produce a new Atomic Show podcast. This is a downpayment on remedying that situation; during the show preps I realized it has been more than two months since the last episode.
Several Atomic Show regulars participated in the conversation.
Steve Aplin, who blogs at Canadian Energy Issues, where you can find frequently updated tables computing Ontario’s Carbon Intensity Per Kilowatt-hour (CPIK)
The regulars joined me in welcoming a new voice – Lenka Kollar, the owner and editor of nuclear undone, a blog that shares accurate information about nuclear technology issues. Here is a quote from nuclear undone’s “About” page.
Nuclear undone is a new grassroots movement to challenge your thinking about nuclear energy and nonproliferation issues. The political, social, and technical challenges brought on by the atomic age are complex and difficult to discern. This initiative works to “undo” these complex problems and present them in a way in which the general public can understand so that you can have well-informed opinions about nuclear issues. Thus allowing you to make educated decisions about which policies to support and not support on the local, national, and international level.
Nuclear Undone is not pro or against nuclear energy, but rather serves as an education portal for those wanting to learn more about important nuclear issues.
We chatted about the ANS Winter Meeting held in Washington, DC, a Small Modular Reactor conference held in Idaho Falls, ID, and a meeting of the Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCI) held in Ajax, On.
Your reward for listening to nearly an hour and a half of us talking is an end-of-show song titled Green Energy Blues, by Bob Lucas. If you are someone who likes to eat dessert first, you can find the lyrics and and a streaming version of the song at Green Energy Blue.
