Brouillette: Nuclear should be part of California’s energy problem solution
In an op-ed published on September 25 in the Orange County Register, Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette decryed the state of California’s handling of its energy crisis.
Brouillette criticized state leaders for championing a 100 percent renewable energy plan that ignores nuclear and natural gas. He also found fault with the plan to prematurely close the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant.
The next generation of nuclear.
The American Nuclear Society exists to aid the next generation in their pursuit of advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies for the benefit of mankind. ANS is committed to providing students with the knowledge, tools, and opportunities to achieve success in or out of the nuclear field. ANS Student Sections provide such a means and a student section may be established in any school that confers academic degrees and offers a curriculum in nuclear science and technology.
Student members play active roles in all facets of the ANS and students and their Sections are represented at the national level by the Student Director and the Student Sections Committee. Since 1998, the ANS Board of Directors has designated one seat for a student member and elections are held to fill this two-year position. If you have any suggestions or comments regarding ANS student affairs, you can send them to Student Sections Committee Chair, Kelley Verner, or the current Student Director, Miriam Kreher.
