I just wanted to post quickly that thanks to two kind and hard-working Skepchick readers, there is now a full transcript for my interview with my dad, Commander Mark L. Mervine, US Navy, about the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster in Japan.
The transcript can be found here:
A Conversation with My Dad, a Nuclear Engineer, about the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Disaster in Japan
I asked my dad if I could interview him later this week as more information about the nuclear disaster becomes available. He said he would be happy to be interviewed again. If you have any specific questions, please post them below and he will try to answer them.
And, just because I can, below is another adorable picture of my dad & me when I was a child. I’ve asked my mom to send some more recent pics of my dad & me as I don’t have any on my computer for some reason. The picture below was taken when I visited Scotland, where my dad was working on nuclear submarines.
