1. A welcome well-executed effort. Only question is will any of the mass mainstream bother to tap it where it counts?

    1. I know that’s a rhetorical question, but I’m guessing the response would be a big “NO!” since there’s likely nothing on that site to support their collective world view.

  2. The website looks good, perhaps a little busy, but still lots of useful information.

    As a supporter of nuclear energy, I would like to make one small suggestion to Go Nuclear, and that is that they be more transparent about who they are. For example, in the About Us section of their website they write:

    “We have a five person Board of Directors in the United States, a ten person Board of Advisors in Canada, India, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United States, and a two person staff in Norway and the United States. Everyone is dedicated to helping you the public around the world learn about and appreciate the fascinating aspects of nuclear energy and nuclear science.”

    Personally, I’d like to see names, faces and bios, especially if I were considering a donation.

    1. I concur with both James above and Jeff’s comments. They should be more transparent for this excellent site.

      1. Thanks Rod and John. I don’t know if it would be obvious to most site visitors to hover over or click on the little Home icon to see this info. For clarity you might want to add a clearly displayed About tab at the top. (Just below the Home icon is an arrow that has catagories like music; I assume is part of the template that wasn’t cleaned up.) Great site overall with lots of useful information.

        Suggestion: It might be worthwhile to add links to those three pages describing those three important groups onto the “About Us” page. The narrative description is good; some viewers will be used to having access to information about the people involved on the “About Us” page.

  3. I love the idea of that website. However, unless they have WRITTEN permission from Disney to use Disney cartoon characters on their website, they need to get them off of there ASAP. I found the Disney characters in the slideshow called “Website Orientation and Navigation Guide”.

    The House of Mouse’s lawyers will descend on them like a ton of, well, anything, because a ton’s a ton. I’d hate to see them get caught up in costly legal proceedings over trademark/copyright violations.

    1. @Jeff S

      I contacted John Shanahan with your concern. Here is his response and request.


      As far as I can determine, the icons are free for use for non-profit organizations. Based on your message and that of your associate, I’ve added the source of the icons and terms of use to the first page of the Orientation and Navigation Guide.

      If you and your associates think the anti-nuclear activists and the Disney lawyers can do anything with this, please advise.



  4. The Go Nuclear site is very slow for me.

    I would much prefer to read articles in a standard html format instead of whatever weird thing they have set up.

    The articles looked interesting, though.

  5. Off topic, but I’m a bit surprised that Atomic Insights hasn’t covered the “Ecomodernist Manifesto” yet. It has been making the rounds on the Blogosphere this week, and it seems like something that Rod could really get behind.

    1. @Brian

      I’ve tweeted about the Ecomodernist Manifesto and read the first few pages, but I’ve had other items on my priority list this week.

      Yesterday, I had a pretty lengthy discussion on Twitter with at least one of the authors.

      I’ll get a “round TUIT” and write a post sometime soon.

      Atomic Insights is rarely a place to find the first words on any particular topic.

  6. People, I happily lately found that this little ditty really DOES work in helping to persuading groups to come around about nukes! Please use it at public discussions or debates!! I wish I’d access to a TV station!

    “The crippling hypocrisy of blind fear is something else. You can pack ALL the fatalities incurred by nuclear plants — in normal operation AND worst accidents WORLDWIDE for the last near _60 years_ since their inception — on a SINGLE Greyhound bus. You can’t build enough OCEAN LINERS to accommodate the fatalities and injuries incurred by fossil fuels just within that same time frame. That fact ALONE shouldn’t make anyone skittish about saying they’re pro-nuke.”
