Charlotte in Late October: Nuclear Construction Summit

The Nuclear Construction Summit will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, on October 25 and 26, 2010.

Ah yes, I once knew a girl named Charlotte. She was quite fine in late October, as I recall. If Charlotte, NC, is anywhere near so fine that time of year, it would be worth the trip. Rod Adams has more:
The second annual Nuclear Construction Summit will be held in Charlotte, NC on October 25-26, 2010. The meeting will include talks from leading figures associated with designing, licensing and building new nuclear power plants. The tentative speaker line up includes Ellen Ruff of Duke Energy, David Matthews of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Jeff Merrifield of Shaw Power Group, Jim Moody of General Dynamics Electric Boat, Michael McGough of Unistar, Mark Campagna of Hyperion Power Generation, Cheri Diane Collins of Southern Company, Tom Sanders of the American Nuclear Society, Ashok Bhatnagar of Tennessee Valley Authority and many more.

The organizers at Nuclear Energy Insider are predicting that there will be more than 300 executives and senior managers associated with building new nuclear plants at the meeting. If you register by Friday, August 27, 2010, you will be eligible for a $400 Super Early Bird discount.

Atomic Insights is planning to cover the meeting and to participate as a media partner. I hope to see you there. I am looking forward to a trip to Charlotte, a place that is shaping up to be a hub of activity for nuclear power plant engineering, design and businessheadquarters.

Update: (Posted on August 23, 2010 at 1106) Thanks to a prompt suggestion from a commenter, Nuclear Energy Insider has agreed to extend a special conference discount to people who sign up based on reading about the meeting here at Atomic Insights. When you register, please use the code ATOMIC200. 

There is a great deal of optimism on the topic of nuclear construction, in some circles. But is the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the US Department of Energy, and other agencies of the US government doing enough to justify that optimism?

The Obama Pelosi regime is a rat's nest of regressive dieoff.orgy green lefty-Luddites, who would like nothing more than to bring on energy starvation and an appreciable reduction of the planet's human population. No, I am not saying that dieoff is official O-P policy -- only that a large number of insiders within O-P would like to see dieoff happen, and would be willing to promote a policy of "energy starvation" to help bring it about.

The energy surrounding a Nuclear Construction Summit is exactly opposite to the darker, more ominous and destructive energies circulating through the US executive, legislative, and to a large degree, judicial branches.

The private sector of the US has always been the more positive, creative, and productive sector of society, and in healthy times the private sector always outgrew the public sector. Currently, the US is suffering through an extreme reversal of that balance, and there is some question of whether the US will be able to survive this imbalance over the long term without extreme re-structuring.

Will the mid-term US elections of November 2010 help to turn things around -- to justify the optimism of the Nuclear Construction Summit? Probably not nearly enough.

But you need optimists and resourceful planners who are prepared to grasp whatever opportunities may present themselves.
