Atomic Power Review Catching up on developments: April 7, 2012

Catching up on developments: April 7, 2012

Atomic Power Review catches up on two of this week's developments, and offers some background as well.

NEW BOOK: My friend Leslie Corrice has just announced that his new book, "Fukushima: The First Five Days" is now ready for purchase and download. Find the book here. This volume is a highly readable account of the accident at Fukushima Daiichi following the tsunami, taken from various official sources but developed and presented in a manner that makes access to the chain of events possible for even the layman. I believe it is a very significant opening dialogue for the general public in terms of the public becoming conversant with the actual event sequence.

WESTINGHOUSE, BABCOCK & WILCOX, ETC. This week was somewhat significant in terms of news in nuclear energy because the news was of a corporate and not a safety related nature (for the most part), dominated as it was by the shakeups at Westinghouse Electric which culminated in the CEO of that firm resigning two days into his tenure only to sign immediately with competitor Babcock & Wilcox.
