Nuclear Power Plants
The enormous tragedy in Japan highlights the dangers of nuclear power. Although serious nuclear incidents do not occur very often, they do occur. And when they do, the incidents can have major repercussion. A few decades ago, I worked to stop nuclear plants in the United States. Now, living fairly close to Three Mile Island, I remain sensitive to the dangers. Last year, I wrote a brief memoir on my work on the subject. “Stopping Nuclear Power Plants: A Memoir,” 21 Villanova Environmental Law Journal 35 (2010).
I am currently a student at Massachusetts International Academy, Marlborough, MA. Presently, in my writing course, I am completing a research project about the nuclear radiation pollution, and I am contacting you to ask about the possibility of conducting an informational interview with you for my project.
This is big news in 2011. I think it is not only affects Japan, but also affects the world. After researching professionals in this field, I have found that you are highly regarded in this field and could provide me with great insight about my topic. I feel that your background and experience in Nuclear Engineering would be invaluable to me as I research this topic of nuclear radiation pollution. At your convenience, I would like to ask you some questions about my project. The purpose of the questions is to gather additional information that will better assist me with my essential questions regarding how nuclear radiation pollution affects our life.
I look forward to your response, and then I could send my questions by e-mail at your convenience. Thank you for considering my request.
