Nuclear Energy - From Leaders to Followers

It's sad to see that the US, once the leader in this Technology, in now lagging far behind other countries. We are building 2 reactors at Vogtle, China is building 20, Russia is building 7, India is building 5 and even UAE is building 4. How did we end up here? See attached document.

Yes, depending on the source of radiation, skyshine could be an important component, particularly for long term exposures.
Thank you very much. I used to think this was just a joke that seasoned scientists used to play on new graduates.

This is very helpful!!

Re: Environment - Role of Nuclear Power

Howard, what parts of the report Helen posted do you have a problem with? Anything specific, or are you opposed to it in principle?

Just wondering.

Re: Has Fukushima's radioactive wave already hit California?

Howard, based on the sources you are using, I can understand your confusion and misunderstanding. Take a look at these and you might get a better idea as to what is going on. http://deepseanews.com/2014/01/is-the-sea-floor-littered-with-dead-animals-due-to-radiation-no/ http://politix.topix.com/home...

Re: Has Fukushima's radioactive wave already hit California?

Take a look here. Though some deny that it is from Fukushima, others claim it is, and it makes sense that it is. The CEO of the company that builds the geiger counter that was used in the video by "expert-Dave", actually was concerned enough to have his company take beach sand samples and have them...

Re: NCRP - Radiological Terms

Very informative, thanks. I have a question about
skyshine: Radiation scattered back to Earth by the atmosphere above a radiation-producing facility.
Is that normally something one needs to worry about?
