NWR Supports Nuclear Energy with 2008 Sponsorship Campaign

From Newman Wachs Racing:
ELKHART LAKE, Wis. - The Champ Car Atlantic series comes to a close this weekend as the Grand Prix at Road America concludes this year for the Atlantic division, at picturesque Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

Not so for Newman Wachs Racing Team - - -

The NWR is happy to launch their 2008 Season Program aptly titled "NUCLEAR CLEAN AIR ENERGY" based on NEI's current campaign statement.

The Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI)'s objective is to ensure formation of public policy to promote the beneficial uses of nuclear energy and technologies, NEI will encourage a collection of public and private organizations united under the promotion of the technological advancement of nuclear power to aid in additional support.

Along with the promotional message to educate the public in all possible aspects of this energy resource, comes the use of the motorsports arena to transmit a positive message to aid recruiting efforts to college and university students on becoming the nuclear science engineers of tomorrow.

After the most recent statement released regarding Paul Newman's support of the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant as an important source providing electricity to millions of New Yorkers, NWR advanced it's marketing efforts into the mainstream of the nuclear community.

This weekend, NWR's guests include an impressive representation of the following nuclear companies:

· Entergy, who this year was named to Forbes list of America's Most Trustworthy Companies, and was once named by BusinessWeek the Global Power Company of the Year.
· Exelon, who operates the largest nuclear fleet in the US, the third largest in the world.
· Southern Company, one of the fastest growing public power holding in the US.
· Excel Services, whose focus is the resolution of technical, safety, and regulatory issues in nuclear facility operations.
· Sargent & Lundy a major nuclear engineer- constructor.

The goal of the Newman Wachs Racing team, as well as its parent sponsors, The Wachs Companies, is to educate and promote the clean, safe use of nuclear power in the US and abroad. NWR, a racing organization in support of cutting edge technology and the value of further testing and research, shares the vision and dedication to success that embodies the "NUCLEAR CLEAN AIR ENERGY" collective.
Great news. We've been talking to the Newman Wachs team for some time now, and it's great to see this finally happening.

Sneak Peek

There's an invisible force powering and propelling our way of life.
It's all around us. You can't feel it. Smell it. Or taste it.
But it's there all the same. And if you look close enough, you can see all the amazing and wondrous things it does.
It not only powers our cities and towns.
And all the high-tech things we love.
It gives us the power to invent.
To explore.
To discover.
To create advanced technologies.
This invisible force creates jobs out of thin air.
It adds billions to our economy.
It's on even when we're not.
And stays on no matter what Mother Nature throws at it.
This invisible force takes us to the outer reaches of outer space.
And to the very depths of our oceans.
It brings us together. And it makes us better.
And most importantly, it has the power to do all this in our lifetime while barely leaving a trace.
Some people might say it's kind of unbelievable.
They wonder, what is this new power that does all these extraordinary things?

A Design Team Pictures the Future of Nuclear Energy

For more than 100 years, the shape and location of human settlements has been defined in large part by energy and water. Cities grew up near natural resources like hydropower, and near water for agricultural, industrial and household use.

So what would the world look like with a new generation of small nuclear reactors that could provide abundant, clean energy for electricity, water pumping and desalination and industrial processes?

Hard to say with precision, but Third Way, the non-partisan think tank, asked the design team at the Washington, D.C. office of Gensler & Associates, an architecture and interior design firm that specializes in sustainable projects like a complex that houses the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys. The talented designers saw a blooming desert and a cozy arctic village, an old urban mill re-purposed as an energy producer, a data center that integrates solar panels on its sprawling flat roofs, a naval base and a humming transit hub.

In the converted mill, high temperat…

Seeing the Light on Nuclear Energy

If you think that there is plenty of electricity, that the air is clean enough and that nuclear power is a just one among many options for meeting human needs, then you are probably over-focused on the United States or Western Europe. Even then, you’d be wrong.

That’s the idea at the heart of a new book, “Seeing the Light: The Case for Nuclear Power in the 21st Century,” by Scott L. Montgomery, a geoscientist and energy expert, and Thomas Graham Jr., a retired ambassador and arms control expert.


Billions of people live in energy poverty, they write, and even those who don’t, those who live in places where there is always an electric outlet or a light switch handy, we need to unmake the last 200 years of energy history, and move to non-carbon sources. Energy is integral to our lives but the authors cite a World Health Organization estimate that more than 6.5 million people die each year from air pollution.  In addition, they say, the global climate is heading for ruinous instability.
