Carnival of Nuclear Energy 171

ferris wheel 202x201The 171st Carnival of Nuclear Energy is up right now at Atomic Power Review.  You can click here to access this latest edition of a long running tradition among pro-nuclear bloggers.

A central theme this week is the response to a number of (very poorly researched and thinly proven) anti-nuclear “hit pieces” published during the week.  Other topics include accelerators and medicine, nuclear plant efficiency, Fukushima Daiichi, and climate change.  Another several posts and blogs are included by choice of the Carnival host.

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, EntrepreNuke, and Deregulate the Atom.

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.

    Have ALL powerplants meet nuclear’s emissions and safety standards by law and see what happens, Any exemption is environmental hypocricy.

    Re Entergy: “Closing Vermont Yankee was agonizing decision & extremely tough call for us.”

    I wonder how tough that call would’ve been without all that massive (media fed) community and political pressure and sheer ignorance. Meredith & Howard, God bless you for waging reason and fact back against a tidal wave of otherwise unchallenged FUD and nuclear bigotry. The fearmongers will be moving on to Indian Point now after their celebration ends and Vermont’s scenic historic vistas and ratepayers lose.
