Atomic energy technology, politics, and perceptions from a nuclear energy insider who served as a US nuclear submarine engineer officer
  • Why is nuclear energy an important influence on both natural gas and hydrogen futures?
    The Feb 6, 2024 Energy Gang podcast was titled “A pause in US gas export approvals: a big win for the climate?US hits the brakes on gas exports!” It was described as a gassy episode with a focus on international natural gas trading, the impact of the Biden Administration’s pause on issuing new permits that...
  • Pro-nuclear advocates should stop bashing advanced nuclear
    I wish I knew why some nuclear advocates feel that it’s worth their time to spread as much negative information as they can find about the potential utility and value of advanced nuclear power technologies. IMO, modern water cooled reactors qualify as advanced in the same way as a modern BMW engine qualifies as advanced...
  • Why would climate publications disrespect nuclear fission?
    Here is another instance of climate reporting that treats nuclear fission as if it barely exists. Before COP28, Cipher published an “Exclusive” that led off with “The United States is working behind the scenes to ensure nuclear power is not excluded from an expected global pledge to boost renewables at the upcoming climate summit in...
  • Why did The Energy Gang overlook the newsworthy impact of nuclear energy on COP28?

  • Where is the nuclear industry headed? Four top executives share their thoughts at ANS Utility Working Conference 2023
    One good reason to attend industry conferences is to be able carefully listen to the thoughts of industry leaders, especially during unscripted panel discussions. When the executives are among colleagues and aren’t delivering prepared, vetted speeches with polished slides, it’s possible to glean valuable information that can help form the basis for future actions. A...
  • Sense of purpose at the 2023 ANS Utility Working Conference
    The theme at the annual American Nuclear Society Utility Working Conference (#ANSUWC) was resiliency, a term that applies equally well to the equipment and the people that make up the U.S. nuclear industry. Resiliency is similar to the materials engineering term of toughness; it’s the ability to withstand pressure and blows and to spring back...
