A few interesting pieces from the blogosphere over the last week or so:

Fellow Melbourne based blogger Robert Merkel is discussing some, well, nuclear power stuff over at Larvatus Prodeo.

Tim Dunlop’s Blogocracy blog (affiliated with ) is taking a look at Thorium as a nuclear fuel. It’s good to see some level headed discussion of nuclear energy systems in such a popular media outlet.

Finally, Sovietologist is taking a look at Russia’s proven nuclear “micropower”. I wonder what Lovins has to say about that?

[Is that post title getting a little bit cliched?]

Nuclear Dreams is a fantastic blog, which I’d largely overlooked until recently. Please go and check it out.

Recent blog posts which I especially liked include an eloquent obituary of the great US physicist John A. Wheeler, Top 5 reasons why [some] intelligent liberals don’t like nuclear energy, a review of Jeremy Bernstein’s [fairly good] book Plutonium and a nice piece of history of US nuclear science.
