  1. Greeting,
    It may behoove you to visit a new website, http://www.hiroshimasyndrome.com. The site touts nuclear energy as one of the options that should be included in the replacement of burning fossil fuels. This possibility is inhibited by a widespread public aversion to all things nuclear and/or associated with radiation. The public’s aversion is based on the perpetuation of misconceptions, all of which can be traced back to the bombing of Hiroshima in 1945.

    The site has experienced an activity growth of 30% to 60% every month since it arrived on search engines on the first of July. Atomic Insights offers, “The Hiroshima Syndrome provides thought provoking reflections on the roots of some of the fears associated with nuclear energy from someone with technical knowledge and experience who has struggled to correct public perceptions.” December promises to be the first month with over a thousand visits (822 in November from more than 45 countries).

    Please give the website a look. You won’t be sorry.

  2. Hello,
    Could you kindly advise on your reproduction policy for content posted to your site?

    • I checked with my web designer, and she suggested I ask for reprint credit whenever someone uses any of my copy, e.g. include a link back to my website as the author, or a mention of my website URL in any printed material. I’m going to add something about this on the site tomorrow, after I’ve had a night to “sleep on it”. A reprint “policy”, if you will. A very “minimal charge” n’est pas?


  3. I believe in internet freedom, as much as possible. Plus, as a former teacher, I want to support classroom use unconditionally. Thus, my policy is for free and open reproduction.


  4. I’d like to speak with you about a joint post on energy, or other avenues we can do cross promotion. Please send me an email if you are interested.
