Atomic Awakening: A New Look at the History and Future of Nuclear Power
“Persuasive and based on deep research. Atomic Awakening taught me a great deal."—Nature
The American public's introduction to nuclear technology was manifested in destruction and death. With Hiroshima and the Cold War still ringing in our ears, our perception of all things nuclear is seen through the lens of weapons development. Nuclear power is full of mind-bending theories, deep secrets, and the misdirection of public consciousness, some deliberate, some accidental. The result of this fixation on bombs and fallout is that the development of a non-polluting, renewable energy source stands frozen in time.
Outlining nuclear energy's discovery and applications throughout history, Mahaffey's brilliant and accessible book is essential to understanding the astounding phenomenon of nuclear power in an age where renewable energy and climate change have become the defining concerns of the twenty-first century.
Having slept the night0 on a rest area steel bench, I woke early and felt very rested. I planned to ride through Texas and stop in New Mexico to be about a 1\2 day ride from Colorado. Things changed during the course of the day.
The early morning ride felt good. It was cool still and the bike seemed to be running better. Early in the ride, I see a sign for the largest cross in the western hemisphere. I stop to take a few pictures and it really is quite a site.
Although the site of the Texas rest area was beautiful, the entire rest of the route through this part of Texas looked like what I would describe as the aftermath of a nuclear explosion.
THE DAILY TAKE:
Miles Today: 462
Total Miles: 2368
States Visited Today: 3
Total States Visited: 11
Weather: Very Hot-shade doesn't exist in N. Texas
SEEN ON THE ROAD:
20+ Pronghorn antelope
Oil wells that aren't pumping
Very fast long-eared Hares
Millions of acres of burned dry grass - 1 tree.
Although most of the ride was miserable, the beginning was cool to see the giant cross. After that, I was in a poor mood for most of the day. Sandblasted by a constant strong wind gave me a sore left side od my neck.
Funny how a change in scenery can change my mood. Once I crossed into N. Mexico, the landscape changed, the temp dropped a few degrees, and I seen a small group of pronghorn. I was better almost instantly. N. Eastern N. Mexico was a pleasant surprise. I ate at a little restaurant at the top of a mountain there. The name was Sierra Grande. It made me think of my granddaughter Sierra. She's pretty grande too. I visited the volcano vent (Capula?) but was too late to get a stamp there. I taking a picture in front of the visitor center when about 8 mule deer walked out of the woods within 20 yards of me. Awesome! I snapped a couple of pictures, but they didn't turn out. Im my rush, i had the camera set for bright sunlight.
My phone hasn't worked the last couple of days. I'm a little upset with Verizon. There coverage map shows that this area is one of the weakest coverage areas, but they show the major cities as a covered area. The Verizon rep assures me that I will have service in Colorado. I know by now, some people are beginning to wonder what happened to me. I push on late though the night and arrive in Colorado after midnight. My phone gets a signal and I call my son Todd.
He had been worried and said he would have to call many of my family. I don't want to make anyone worry about. But it is a nice feeling to have concerned about your well being. Love you all! I'll do better at keeping in contact.
200 YEARS AGO TODAY:
The Corp is exchanging sore bacl and indifferent horses for better animals with the Nez Perce. The entire group is exalted with the idea of returning home. Sgt. Ordway notes the extreme effort the Indians pursue to reach Eagles nests and obtain feathers for prized headdresses.

To Whom It May Concern:
I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult. I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of a 6 year old again.
I want to go to McDonald's and think that it's a four star restaurant.

I want to return to a time when life was simple.
I want to know only colors, addition tables and simple nursery rhymes.

Somewhere in my youth...I matured and I learned too much.
I learned of nuclear weapons, war, prejudice, starvation and abused children.
I learned of lies, unhappy marriages, suffering, illness, pain and death.
I learned of a world where men left their families to go and fight for our country, and returned only to end up living on the streets... begging for their next meal.

I want to be oblivious to the complexity of life and be overly excited by little things once again.
I want to return to the days when reading was fun and music was clean.
I want television to be something I watch for fun, not something I use for escape from the things I should be doing.
I want to live knowing the little things I find exciting will always make me as happy as when I first learned them.
I want to believe that anything is possible.
I want to be naive and thinking that everyone was happy because I was.
I want to walk on the beach and only think of the sand between my toes and the prettiest seashell I could find.

Somewhere in my youth...I matured and I learned too much.
I learned of computer crashes of mountains of paperwork.
I learned of depressing news of how to survive more days in the month than there is money in the bank.
I learned of doctor bills, gossip, illness and loss of loved ones.

I want that time back.
I want to be 6 again.
And if you want to discuss this further, you'll have to catch me first, cause,
"Tag! You're It."

Originally perceived as a cheap and plentiful source of power, the commercial use of nuclear energy has been controversial for decades. Worries about the dangers that nuclear plants and their radioactive waste posed to nearby communities grew over time, and plant construction in the United States virtually died after the early 1980s. The 1986 disaster at Chernobyl only reinforced nuclear power's negative image. Yet in the decade prior to the Japanese nuclear crisis of 2011, sentiment about nuclear power underwent a marked change. The alarming acceleration of global warming due to the burning of fossil fuels and concern about dependence on foreign fuel has led policymakers, climate scientists, and energy experts to look once again at nuclear power as a source of energy.
In this accessible overview, Charles D. Ferguson provides an authoritative account of the key facts about nuclear energy. What is the origin of nuclear energy? What countries use commercial nuclear power, and how much electricity do they obtain from it? How can future nuclear power plants be made safer? What can countries do to protect their nuclear facilities from military attacks? How hazardous is radioactive waste? Is nuclear energy a renewable energy source? Featuring a discussion of the recent nuclear crisis in Japan and its ramifications, Ferguson addresses these questions and more in a book that is essential for anyone looking to learn more about this important issue.
