To follow up on the soup theme, I made my favourite kale soup tonight with some Parmigiano cheese on top. Otherwise, I was thrilled to hear back from my sister who has been in Amsterdam over the weekend discussing the future of nuclear energy in Europe. One outcome of the meeting was the importance of expressing nuclear pride.

After all, given that nuclear energy has saved over two million lives and prevented 60 gigatonnes or more of carbon emissions, there is every reason to be proud of what you are doing if you work in the nuclear industry. While I understand that people may not want to bring this up at parties when they are asked about their profession, keeping silent legitimizes the idea that nuclear is something that we should be ashamed of and that closing down nuclear would somehow be good for the climate (a narrative that Swedish journalists keeps repeating, unintentionally or not).
