A Nuclear Powered Africa? Full Interview included


In the post-Japan nuclear emergency environment, I recently looked into prospects for nuclear energy in Africa for VOA here.

It's a crucial issue given Africa's energy needs and the quickly moving nuclear sector, with cheaper and smaller reactors coming on board, even if it has its strong-willed opponents, who wave meltdown flags at any sign of a radiation leak.


For this article I interviewed Dan Yurman, a widely read nuclear energy blogger.

I also had the privilege to interview nuclear scholar Igor Khripunov who wrote a very interesting article on this very topic for the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists a few years ago. Listen in below compliments of Sound Cloud.
