U.S. NRC Blog

Transparent, Participate, and Collaborate

Welcome Message from the Chairman

NRC Chairman Gregory JaczkoWelcome to the new NRC Blog. We are excited about using this new communications tool and hope it will increase our collaboration and interaction with the public. The blog is intended to serve as a vehicle for informing, explaining and clarifying the actions, roles and responsibilities of the NRC, raising awareness about our agency and its mission, and – most importantly – giving us an opportunity to hear from you.

Staff from throughout the NRC will be posting regularly on the blog, addressing a variety of topics. Just to be clear, the blog is not replacing our usual modes of communicating with and getting feedback from the public. Instead, it is an additional way of communicating with you. We will continue to rely on public meetings, Federal Register notices and traditional media to convey official information.

We hope you will comment on our posts and on the comments of others. Please be sure to read the Blog Guidelines before doing so. Comments are moderated and we will review them and get them up as quickly as possible during regular business hours.

If you have questions, issues or concerns about nuclear safety or security, contracting with the NRC, or working at our agency, please use the links below to find more information:

Welcome again to the new NRC Blog. We hope this is the beginning of a lively and engaging dialogue.

Gregory Jaczko
Chairman, NRC

    I welcome the spirit behind NRC’s blog initiative but find it totally contrary to the manner in which Chairman Jaczko has dispositioned the Yucca Mountain LA. His action does damage to the agency’s reputation, which is unfortunate given the stellar reputation image the agency has worked so hard to earn over the years.

    I welcome this opportunity to engage a well respected federal agency on topics that are vital to our nation’s future, yet natuarally controversial. Healthy, open debate based on science and objective evidence is always good. That being said I think the NRC Chairman is risking the excellent reputation of his organization, by allowing even the perception of politics entering into NRC’s decisions regarding the Yucca Mountain Project to continue to exist. Notwithstanding the moderator’s rebuttal to Mr. Quinn’s earlier observations in this regard I think many, if not most, informed observers would disagree. While I believe the vast majority of the rank and file and senior management of the NRC is truly committed to fair and open technical decision processes, claiming that the Chair is likewise committed is not credible, in my view. As they say in some parts of the country, “that dog won’t hunt”.
