Our report on the American Nuclear Society
US Nuclear Energy mailed to 4930 Northern Nevada residents, businesses, media and casinos. The mailing also contained an excellent brochure on nuclear energy supplied by the Nuclear Energy Institute in Washington, DC. Here are some of our observations: . . . some great meetings took place!
About 1250 American Nuclear Society members descend on Reno for their annual meeting. Scientists, engineers, students and educators made up the group of attendees.
l An estimated 60% increase in energy needs are expected from 2005 to 2030. In oil an increase of 50 million barrels a day is estimated.
l The industry needs to create a stronger public policy response
l The Department of Energy’s overall goal is national security for the energy we develop for Americans. This includes the work, study and planned implementation of the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository.
l DOE has “approved” some new design nuclear reactors that can be licensed and built within 4 years.
l l Nuclear is the only credible source of energy to produce high volume hydrogen . . . Michael Campbell – General Atomics.
l l 5 years of adverse information about Yucca Mountain / ECA Energy Communities Alliance, estimate that 30% of Nevadans support Yucca / 4,000 Nevadans tour Yucca a year!
Andrew White President-CEO GE Nuclear: We need to maximize the efficiency in the extraction of ALL energy sources . . . in 2005 GE hired 250 new engineers . . . GE is moving their Asian engineers to Wilmington NC headquarters . . . even after a 20 year review, nuclear offers the best alternative energy source. We need to build 20 new gigawatt nuclear plants by 2020. GE Nuclear has the best safety record of “any” GE business.

l Can we refine, unite and deploy grassroots organizations that will bring the message of nuclear energy development to Americas citizens? We must!
l Will the education of Americas citizens about nuclear energy contribute to informed citizens who can influence the media and political misconceptions about nuclear? Yes and they must!
A Sincere effort of Major importance to America-Nuclear Energy!
