Richard McDonald, is a member of the Board of Directors for EFN-USA and a retired research physicist from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The position and goal of EFN-USA is to show how nuclear power can directly or indirectly address environmental problems while providing energy to maintain developed countries and energy to advance developing countries. Depletion of conventional oil, lack of sufficient potable water, and famine drive conflicts among nations, and war can be the greatest environmental threat of them all.
Kelvin Kemm explains why people in South Africa should be excited about nuclear power. The arguments apply to many countries in Africa, Latin America and Asia.
Kelvin Kemm, other scientists, nuclear engineers and leaders in South Africa are showing the world that plentiful electrical energy is one of the most important things for improving lives of people with less and maintaining the good life for people who already are doing well. Dr. Kemm travels the world from Russia to Vietnam to Bolivia and is leading efforts across the African Continent helping people learn about the importance of nuclear energy for the long term future.
Kelvin Kemm, CEO of Nuclear Africa, is dedicated to promoting nuclear energy throughout Africa and he is working with countries in Asia who are looking to nuclear power also.
