Before starting todays blog I would like to take a moment and extend my condolences to those directly effected by the natural disaster in Japan.
Have you been watching the news coverage of the Natural Disaster?
Being an energy guy I have been rather intrigued to watch the coverage regarding the nuclear generation facilities. Now, I will come right out and say it...Yes, I am a proponent for safe nuclear power generation...Yes, I am an even larger proponent for clean/sustainable power generation and energy efficiency measures...and YES, I believe that from it's extraction, to burning, to burial ~ COAL IS DIRTY AND FINITE!
So why did I start talking about Nuclear Power today?
Well, as I have watched the news coverage...I feel they have been trying to build drama and fear regarding our nuclear energy generation security. As I feel much fear can be displaced through increased knowledge and education...I invite you to listen to Duncan Hawthorne, the CEO of Bruce Power(Ontario's largest independent power generator). He is also the chair of the board for governors of the World Association of Nuclear Operators.
Enjoy and make it a great day!
