I’ve started this blog as my contribution to the online pro-nuclear-energy grass roots blog-based community i’ve seen developing, which I’ve followed with great interest.
Like many, i’ve decided that as a scientist, I simply can no longer in good conscience just sit idly by and watch things that are not scientifically true be spread on an astonishing scale, when it comes to this debate over the world’s fission energy renaissance.
Well, that is one of my areas of interest, but I certainly have nothing against blogging about other areas of politics, technology, science and society.
I’m a student at the University of Melbourne, Australia, majoring in Physics and Computer Engineering. Don’t worry, I’ve *almost* graduated. Perhaps I should stop blogging and get back to the books?
As far as nuclear energy is concerned. I have no commercial or professional ties or conflicts of interest with regards to the nuclear energy, nuclear fuel or Uranium mining industries what so ever. Still, that doesn’t change anything. Some people will call me a shill, but some people can convince themselves of anything they dream up.
I’m a Liberal, (and an atheist) and usually a voter for the Australian Labor Party. That said, however, I can not at all disagree with John Howard’s policies of rationally investigating the feasibility of nuclear energy for Australia – although I didn’t vote for him in 2007, for other reasons.
That said, however, I generally seem to disagree with “far Left” politics, such as the Australian Greens and other “Green” Parties, and I certainly seem to find myself at odds with the far-leftist socialist political organisations that seem to breed like rabbits around universities in particular the world over.
