2009.02.16 - Nuclear Subsidy Averted in U.S. Congress
Read this Harvey Wasserman article in Counterpunch
on how vigilant citizens thwarted a middle-of-the-night attempt by federal politicians to throw a $50-billion bonus
to the U.S. nuclear industry. Added Bonus: the Yucca Mountain farce may be coming to an end. Now, if we could just
figure out how to keep nuclear-powered, nuclear-armed submarines from running into each other in the middle of the ocean.
2009.02.01 - Does Nuclear Fission Really Help Reduce Global Warming?
Unclear about Nuclear - as a climate change solution? You are not alone, and it isn't a slam-dunk answer.
(Thermodynamic limitations to nuclear energy deployment as a greenhouse gas mitigation technology) on the subject
provides a scientific examination of the issue.
2009.01.27 - Bad Reactors
There appears to be a resurgence of interest in nuclear fission technology, a "nuclear renaissance"
according to some proponents. It is being heralded as a 'green' and economically attractive option
by some, who say the new generation of reactors have left the problems of older designs behind.
Or perhaps we will just have to learn those hard lessons all over again now that a new generation of
decision makers have created a kind of societal amnesia. Consider this story,
Bad Reactors by Mariah Blake,
about one of the first of
the new generation of reactors to be built. The problems sound hauntingly familiar.
