It’s my just my luck that whenever I write something good about an industry, something bad happens.
That’s how it went when I interviewed Gerald Grandey, CEO of Cameco Corp., one of the world’s largest uranium mining companies. In a Feb. 22 column, I channeled his views that nuclear power had proven to be a safe form of energy, despite all the hysteria from Three Mile Island and Chernobyl. Three weeks later … Japan.
Grandey now points out that the worst has happened – and, really, when you compare it to other disasters such as BP’s Gulf spill last spring – it isn’t so bad.
