    Anyone should be allowed to post here as long as they follow the moderator rules, BUT, we don’t have to engage with them if they are clearly just here to be contrary and agitate.

    When we engage we then have mile long strings of comments that I and others who don’t care to engage with the troll/shill/contrarian have to wade through to get to the intelligent valuable information that we come here to read and engage with.

    A troll/shill/contrarian wants to derail your conversation. This site will become worthless if we are engaging constantly with these people who add nothing of value to the conversation except to state that they don’t agree. If they have verifiable information to support their views then engage with them.

    Wow! AdamsTheMouthPiece!

    I'm sure the longtimers here know that this character is none other than…Rod Adams

    The Nuclear Messiah…

    The nuclear industry should be ashamed to have this guy pushing their crack.

    The one who stole a 1940's nuclear engine idea and tried to pass it off as his own.

    Ya, the same idea that the first nuclear submarines were based on.

    The same design basis for the Mark 1 BWR…

    He couldn't get anyone to back his ripped off idea, so he had to fold his startup.

    Probably ripped off some investors too.

    His great education was studying to be an engineer on a nuke sub.

    Ya, the guy who compacted the trash on the sub. hahaha!

    He works for Babcock&Wilcox as a talking head. Muckity that!

    I wonder if his heavily coal invested boss's know he doesn't like coal.

    Oh ya, he's an environmentalist too! Hahaha!

    Here's his resume:

    I don’t usually post, but I do visit this site almost daily. I am very impressed with the level of intelligence, rational comments, and research that most posters put forth. The reason that I feel compelled to post now is because of the new poster, atom. I have dealt with him for a fairly long time, (since 4/11) on Huff, and, I am sorry to say, that he is who he says he is.
    He earned his PhD. from MIT, (nuclear engineering) and does not know the meaning of the word, “humility.” He does work for the nuke industry at a facility in the south. He will never post a link to back up a statement, but prefers to attack the validity of others posters comments.
    He is paid by the nuke industry to post on “social websites,” and on Huff he often caps comments to earn whatever bonus is involved for capping.
    Each of us can choose to respond to him or not. There is generally no value added by his comments, just “denial” in many different forms. He deflects the momentum of a thread by posting useless info with no links to corroborate his mostly untrue statements.
    I realize that the nuclear industry provides his livelihood, but it amazes me that he is able to deny the danger from what is being spewed from Fukushima, 24/7 for the last 10 months. It is hard to believe that HE actually believes that nuclear is safe, while the planet is slowly dying from radiation.
    This is just FYI…do with it what you will…

      Oh he has been on his knees for the nuke industry long before Fuku….
      I for one welcome snake oil salesmen like him.
      It stirs up emotions and reduces apathy for this cause.
      Real humans who just browse here get to see the true face of the nuclear industry.
      His comments show the callousness of their mantra, proving that they do not care about anything but their precious radionuclides and money.
      Ones like him are only doing us a favor by commenting here.
