Helpful material and type of writing. There's no doubt I'll check back on this site later and see what else you could have
in store! ;-) So i'm going to discover if I will be able to uncover something associated with nuclear power!!

James, sorry that I missed your comment, but I am quite busy on so many different projects. Briefly, I am a technology buff, and often conduct research cleantech technologies, including nuclear power. I often refer to myself as a technology research scientist. The above article predates the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe, when there was a very active movement towards nuclear. Even the Obama administration was pushing nuclear. However, the recent events is has probably going to delay things in order to completely re-evaluate nuclear safety. There are a lot of US nuclear reactors that are reaching their 40-year life spans, and the NRC is reviewing their applications to extend their licenses to operate for another 30 or 40 years. Safety is a huge issue now. Do these older reactors require additional improvements and strengthening? How much will this cost? Who is going to pay for it? It's a really tough choice. 9% of America's electrical needs comes from nuclear, so a lot is at stake. Hope these comments help. Tommy Toy

Dear Toy,
I am doing a debate at school about expanding nuclear energy, and I found you article very interesting. I plan to use the information in the article in my debate and need to know your biography. The biography is about how you are connected to the information on nuclear energy by profession or this is something you find interesting. So can you please tell me your background on this subject, it would be very helpful. Thank you
