One of the most interesting observers that I have found about nuclear energy is a diarist on The Daily Kos who uses the pen name of NNadir. He is a very progressively minded chemist who calls himself an Eleanor Roosevelt liberal. He believes that prosperity for all is a good goal, that humans have a responsibility to future generations, that climate change is one of the most important issues facing us today, and that fossil fuel waste is a much harder nut to solve than effectively handling nuclear fission byproducts.
He stopped by Atomic HQ the other night for a face to face chat that I recorded as episode number 60 of The Atomic Show. I hope you enjoy it, despite the fact that we managed to talk for more than an hour without even taking a break.
