A collaborative effort celebrates a one-year milestone
The 52nd Carnival of Nuclear Energy Bloggers is up at ANS Nuclear Cafe. It is ironic that cooperation among North American pro-nuclear energy bloggers would mark the first year of operation in the middle of the Japanese crisis at Fukushima.
Nuclear energy bloggers talk to each other all the time. It is one of the most intense online dialogs on the subject available in the English language. Fukushima has pushed the envelope of subject matter in the blogsphere as well as responses to the mainstream news media.
In 2009 there were fewer than half a dozen pro-nuclear blogs active in North America. Today, there are three times that number. Most of them participate in the weekly carnival. The carnival features blog posts from the leading U.S. nuclear bloggers and is a roundup of featured content from them.
This week there is continuing news from Fukushima, but there are also a diverse set of posts on nuclear energy topics. If you want to hear the voice of the nuclear renaissance, the Carnival of Nuclear Energy Blogs is where to find it. Contrary to what the anti-nuclear crowd would like you to believe, the wheels have not come off the renaissance.
Past editions have been hosted at NEI Nuclear Notes, ANS Nuclear Cafe, NuclearGreen, CoolHandNuke, and, Idaho Samizdat, as well as several other popular nuclear energy blogs.
If you have a pro-nuclear energy blog, and would like to host an edition of the carnival, please contact Brian Wang at Next Big Future to get on the rotation. This is a great collaborative effort that deserves your support. Please post a Tweet, a Facebook entry, or a link on your Web site or blog to support the carnival.
