Bruce Becker will be our guest for EcoChat this week and we'll be discussing renewable energy in light of President Obama's plan to support construction of a nuclear power plant in the USA.
Bruce is an expert in the field. I first met him in May last year when I toured the Windpower 2009 Conference in Chicago. Back then, Bruce was President and CEO of Mecaro, a Japanese wind turbine company. Check out MY VIDEO featuring Bruce. You'll see him about @ 3:30 into the piece.
I was shocked to hear about Obama's support for nuclear energy, and Bruce believes it's a step in the wrong direction too. He says, "Although nuclear is relatively carbon positive versus coal, the dangers in mining, refining, processing, shipping nuclear fuel, and the long-term consequences of a lack of real nuclear waste disposal solutions, make nuclear generated electricity a huge environmental concern."
Bruce and I are excited for the opportunity to open up this discussion with EcoChat viewers, so please join us Monday night and let your voice be heard.
