On August 21, 2009, Susan McGinnis of Clean Skies News invited me to come to the company’s downtown Washington studio for an interview about nuclear energy. I enjoyed the opportunity to converse with some of the network’s reporters – my car picked me up a few minutes earlier than absolutely needed – and then to sit down with Susan for a longer than expected interview. I hope that means I was not boring.
The studios are top notch and manned with experienced professionals. Margaret Ryan, for example, spent more than 25 years with Platts and wrote for Nucleonics week while Dan Goldstein is also an experienced energy reporter with stints at Bloomberg and Platts.
I hope you enjoy the discussion. Feedback is always welcome – I am still learning and expect I will be for quite some time to come.
Update: (Posted August 21, 2009 at 1936) The Clean Skies afternoon energy report included a segment about the US-UAE nuclear cooperation agreement. While at the studio, I got asked why oil producing states would be so interested in nuclear energy. You can watch the story starting at about minute 18.
