Editor's Note: Cleaning Up the Blogroll

At the behest of one of our friends from AREVA, we took a quick inventory of the links in our blogroll and got to business cleaning things up. Over the years, we've been pretty liberal about who we included in that list, especially when it came to extended periods of inactivity.

There are a number of reasons for this, not the least of which was the fact that a number of blogs listed here played an important part in online conversation about the industry during the early days of NEI Nuclear Notes. If an when any of our friends online take a break, we generally like to let them know that we haven't forgotten about them, and if and when they ever decide to come back, we'd be happy to see them return to the conversation.

Still, in checking over the links, things had clearly gotten a bit overgrown. In general, if a blog hadn't been updated in six months or more, we pruned it from the list. That of course begs the next question: are there any new blogs that we ought to be following now that aren't currently on our list? If there are, drop off the URLs in the comment box below.

How about Progressives for Nuclear Progress, the blog you welcomed yesterday.

http://nuclearprogress.org/

Also, I am not sure, but I think the Nuclear Literacy Project has a blog. Hmm...I went to the site, but there are posts in several areas, not a place I can point to and say: "This is the blog." Maybe Suzy can help with this.

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.
