Carnival of Nuclear Energy 160

ferriswheel 201x268The 160th Carnival of Nuclear Energy is up at Meredith Angwin’s “Yes Vermont Yankee” blog.  You can click here to access this latest edition in a long-running tradition (over three years now!) that showcases the best pro-nuclear blogs each week.

This week’s contributions are, as might be expected, headlined by news about the announcement at the end of the week that San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station will be retired (and eventually decommissioned.)  There are however a number of other things, more favorable to nuclear energy, in the news too including plant uprates, internships for nuclear engineers, and information on the new film ‘Pandora’s Promise.’

Each week, a new edition of the Carnival is hosted at one of the top English-language nuclear blogs. This rotating feature of nuclear “posts of the week” represents the dedication of those who are working toward a future of energy abundance through nuclear science and technology.

Past editions of the carnival have been hosted at Yes Vermont Yankee, Atomic Power Review, ANS Nuclear Cafe, NEI Nuclear Notes, Next Big Future, Atomic Insights, Hiroshima Syndrome, Things Worse Than Nuclear Power, and EntrepreNuke.

This is a great collaborative effort that deserves your support.  If you have a pro-nuclear energy blog and would like to host an edition of the carnival, please contact Brain Wang at Next Big Future to get on the rotation.
