Nuclear Energy Activist Toolkit #50

NEAT #29 explained how you can sign up to receive email notifications from the NRC when it issues things like press releases and reports on specific nuclear reactors. What I wasn’t keeping secret but had failed to mention was that you can also sign up to receive notifications when UCS posts new commentaries to our All Things Nuclear blog.

You can be notified about all things posted to the All Things Nuclear blog by clicking on the Subscribe to this feed link and then clicking on the Subscribe button in the pop-up box. All members of UCS’s Global Security Program team post commentaries to our All Things Nuclear blog. Signing up to every blog post will alert you to commentaries from:

  • Laura Grego, senior scientist, such as her commentary about the Iran’s recent launch of its fourth satellite.
  • Lisbeth Gronlund, co-director and senior scientist, such as her commentary on UCS’s report on the future of the U.S. nuclear weapons complex
  • Gregory Kulacki, China project manager and senior analyst, such as his commentary on nuclear arms control in China.
  • Dave Lochbaum, director of the nuclear safety project, such as my commentary on safety culture problems within the NRC.
  • Edwin Lyman, senior scientist, such as his commentary on NRC’s security inspections at nuclear power plants themselves being under attack.
  • Eryn MacDonald, analyst, such as her commentary of the documentary, The Man Who Save the World.
  • Sean Meyer, manager of strategic communications, such as his commentary about the conference on nuclear weapons in Vienna that he attended last December (and its cool picture of the town hall).
  • David Wright, co-director and senior scientist, such as his commentary on the NRC’s valuation of human lives.
  • Stephen Young, Washington representative and senior analyst, such as his commentary on President Obama’s nuclear legacy needing to end prompt launch status for our ground-based long-range nuclear-armed missiles.

Or, you can be notified about posts involving nuclear power safety by clicking on the Subscribe to this feed link and then clicking on the Subscribe button in the pop-up box. This will notify you when I post commentaries to the Fission Stories and Nuclear Energy Activist Toolkit series and when Ed post commentaries on nuclear power safety and security issues.

These notifications are made by subscribing to UCS’s Rich Site Summary (RSS) feeds. Subscribing to RSS feeds (and unsubscribing from them) as well as configuring Microsoft Outlook to convert each blog post published over RSS into an email is explained here.

Bottom Line

Signing up to receive automatic notifications when UCS posts materials to our All Things Nuclear blog is free and easy.

Nearly half of my colleagues in the Global Security Program have doctorate degrees. But we all type our commentaries so you’ll have no problems reading their handwriting. And we all strive to write as jargon-lite and acronym-free as possible so you won’t need to also have a doctorate to understand us.

I encourage you to sign up for automatic notifications of postings to the All Things Nuclear blog. If you read my post about getting automatic notifications from the NRC and signed up for them, fairness nearly dictates that you at least try out ours.

Endnote: My appreciation to Chris Bliss, a Web Content Manager in UCS’s Communications Department, for his assistance in preparing this post. I had no clue whether one could sign up to receive automatic notifications of All Things Nuclear posts yet alone how to do it. Chris explained how it is done to me. Chris has been with UCS for about a year and thus far answered every question I’ve asked him quickly and correctly. If he doesn’t knock it off, I may change the question after receiving his next answer just so he misses one every now and then.

 

The UCS Nuclear Energy Activist Toolkit (NEAT) is a series of post intended to help citizens understand nuclear technology and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s processes for overseeing nuclear plant safety.
