Leslie Corrice, the author of The Hiroshima Syndrome website, first career of 21 years (in order) nuclear power plant operator, environmental monitoring technician, health physics design engineer, public relations spokesperson, public education coordinator and emergency planner. His second career was teaching science and math on the high school level. Now, he dedicates himself to The Hiroshima Syndrome website. After the Fukushima accident, his website was one of the most widely read about understanding the accident. He is dedicated to teaching people around the world about the benefits of nuclear energy, radioisotopes and low-dose radiation
In the public mind, the foremost reservation about nuclear power is, “What can we do with the waste?” Fortunately there is an answer: We can use the worrisome, very long-lived components as fuel in the right kind of reactors, and then the rest becomes manageable.
Donald R. Riley - He evolved the SEFOR (Southwest Experimental Fast Oxide Reactor) conceptual design. SEFOR was built and successfully proved the Doppler Coefficient that shuts down a reactor using MOX fuel without any special actions. If Chernobyl had been a fast reactor it would not have destroyed itself.
Jeffrey Mahn - Presentation will address:
- Natural phenomena and man-made events considered in assessing safety of nuclear power plant.
- How level of “risk” associated with such events is determined.
- What level of risk considered acceptable and why.
