Dr. Dale Klein is departing the US NRC after having served for nearly 4 years. Before his departure, his Chief of Staff made contact with bloggers who are working to share information about nuclear energy and offered the opportunity for an interview.
We took up the offer. In this episode, you will hear questions from the following members of the pro-nuclear blogging community:
- John Wheeler from This Week in Nuclear
- Margaret Harding from The Energy Collective
- Dan Yurman from Idaho Samizdat and The Energy Collective
- Meredith Angwin from Yes Vermont Yankee
- Rod Adams from Atomic Insights and The Energy Collective
Dr. Klein talked about his experiences on the commission, the challenges that his successors will face, the foundations that have been laid to enable new nuclear power plant developments, the importance of baseload power generation, the importance of communications from nuclear professionals, and the importance of communications between the NRC and the entities that it serves.
I hope you enjoy this episode. Please use it to motivate your own efforts to share what you know in your local community. Atomic ignorance must be eliminated. That will only occur with a lot of individual and group efforts to educate, inform and share by people who really understand the technology.
