Bruno Comby is a very successful nuclear physicist, author, eco home designer and builder, and lecturer about nuclear energy, the environment, and healthy living. He has written ten books that have been translated into many languages. He gives lectures and does research on five continents. He is very proud of the state of the art eco-house he built himself in the suburbs of Paris and the electric car he drives around Metro Paris. Founder - President of Environmentalists for Nuclear Energy - International, with branches in: Argentina, Australia, Canada, India, Poland, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States. He is also President of Institute Bruno Comby, which focuses on healthy living and environmental problems around the world.
Leo Rostermundt's grandparents immigrated to the United States from Schleswig-Holstein, Germany in the 1890s. They were farmers who settled in Iowa. This account of Leo Rostermundt's grandparents, parents and relatives traces the important developments in agriculture over the last century. Agriculture and energy are two things that keep a country running well. In the case of agriculture, the USA is feeding a significant portion of the world. We could be helping the world with nuclear energy, if that advanced technology had not been stopped by anti-nuclear activists and the two presidents, Carter and Clinton, who played to the anti-nuclear activists for votes. Russia is marketing nuclear power plants to Turkey, Vietnam, South Africa and other countries. Russia is helping many poor countries and gaining stature, while the USA stands idle by in this sector.
Peyton Williams is a chemistry/pre-med major in college with top ranking in a class of 4,507 students in Sophomore year. In the summer between high school and college, he studied a book about the most advanced nuclear reactor in the United States and wrote a report, "Reactors of the Future: The Integral Fast Reactor." This technology was stopped in the United States and France for the time being, by anti-nuclear advocates and two U.S. Presidents who bend to their will. Russia is going full speed ahead with fast neutron reactors. See Peyton Williams' report on both websites: go-nuclear.org and efn-usa.org. The world needs excellent students like him in all endeavors.
Kelvin Kemm, nuclear physicist, is a dynamic leader for nuclear energy in South Africa and the African Continent. He is also a voice of science and reason in the United States.
Ted Rockwell is one of the most accomplished, respected and down to Earth pioneers in nuclear energy and an excellent writer. He had many interesting conversations with his colleagues, Congress, the media, and students. When signatures were collected for his memorial tribute for Go Nuclear in 2013, a nuclear engineering student in Jordan asked if he could sign. He had studied from the Reactor Shielding Manual that Ted Rockwell was the Editor of and was very thankful to Dr. Rockwell. This book has been standard curriculum for nuclear engineering students around the world since 1956.
