The Hill article: The nuclear industry is stifled
In an opinion piece published by The Hill, Tim Cavanaugh blasts the federal government for “quick-fix” and “half-hearted” efforts to retain existing nuclear power plants.
Cavanaugh, senior editor at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, adds that the U.S. nuclear energy industry is stifled by outmoded policies and suggests a number of policy changes to allow it to flourish and to “end a regulatory model that has starved the nuclear industry nearly to extinction.”
Renewable failures: Cavanaugh’s first suggestion is to acknowledge the failure of renewable energy sources like wind and solar, which “produce too little energy and are too unreliable to make a dent in our heat and electricity needs, even though taxpayers have spent billions of dollars on green pork.”
The Nuclear PE Exam Preparation Module Program is a video-based preparation tool aimed at those preparing to take the Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) exam in Nuclear Engineering. The modules are instructional with an abundance of fully worked example problems to emphasize practical learning. A list of Learning Objectives is given at the end of the video, which maps to the NCEES nuclear exam specification.
The module program is organized according to the five specification areas (listed in the downloadable exam specification) that make up the Nuclear PE exam, plus a general area that provides background information that may be applicable to multiple areas:
Notice: This program is under construction. Users may purchase segments of the program one specification area at a time, or users may purchase the full program at a discount.
* Users can find information on Specification Area 5 topics in other study resources.
Every effort has been made to make these videos as time-insensitive as possible. However, certain references (most notably the PE Nuclear Reference Handbook) are living documents that undergo frequent updates. All figure numbers, table numbers, page numbers, etc., are accurate as of the time of production, but please be aware that such references may change over time. If you spot an error, please notify us.
A list of contributors can be found on the project credits page. More resources for prospective exam takers can be found on the Nuclear PE Exam Preparation page.
Prior to purchase, you can view a list of Learning Objectives to see what material is covered in each module.
Upon purchase, the modules are accessed by clicking the titles below to expand the contents menu. Each specification area contains videos on multiple topics. Simply click each title to access the videos within each topic.
