Re-evaluating sustainability of nuclear and other industries: how?

Jerry Sickles -from the New Jersey chapter of the National institute of Directors (USA), Fellow of the Governance and Sustainability Institute, and co-author of Strategic Governance- calls for a thorough global re-evaluation of the nuclear industry based on the seven questions from the Strategic Governance System designed to assess any industry’s sustainability.

Here they are (in parenthesis my doubts on the method and process):

1. Is the vision for the industry pure and beneficial to the global community? (this is a very difficult issue..pure and beneficial in what sense?)

2. Is the industry’s purpose well-intended? (well intended in what sense and how does it differ from the previous point?)

3. Do industry leaders seek and speak the truth? (the truth does not exist..there are at least as many truths as there are interest groups)

4. Do industry leaders “walk the talk” – not merely say what they do, but actually do what they say? (this is the definition, in my view, of the term trust)

5. Is the industry environmentally and socially justifiable, not associated with the production of useless, harmful, or evil goods and services? (who decides the levels of justification?)

6. Does the industry keep in mind its members’ true nature and how they contribute to the success of our global eco-system? (if by members the implication is industry members, why is there absolutely no reference to the industry’s other stakeholders?)

7. Does the industry integrate governance, strategy, risk, culture, and sustainability? (ok)

  2. Something you should do to discover more about women well before you’re left behind.

  3. Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!

  4. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

  5. Right now it sounds like Expression Engine is the preferred blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  6. Fantastic website you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get feedback from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Kudos!

  7. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  8. Hi there! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask. Does operating a well-established website such as yours take a lot of work? I’m completely new to running a blog however I do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

  9. Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks

  10. Virtually all of the things you say is supprisingly precise and that makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light before. This piece really did turn the light on for me as far as this particular topic goes. Nevertheless there is actually one particular factor I am not necessarily too cozy with and while I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual main theme of your issue, allow me see exactly what all the rest of your subscribers have to point out.Very well done.

  11. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back often!

  12. Music began playing as soon as I opened up this blog, so frustrating!

  13. Along with almost everything that appears to be developing throughout this specific subject material, many of your points of view are very stimulating. Having said that, I appologize, but I can not give credence to your entire strategy, all be it radical none the less. It looks to everyone that your comments are not entirely validated and in simple fact you are generally yourself not really wholly convinced of the assertion. In any event I did enjoy reading it.

  14. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyway, just wanted to say excellent blog!

  15. Amazing! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!
