RECKLESS SCIENCE - 'NUCLEAR NIGHTMARES' EXPOSED

The New York Times Magazine featured an 8,000-word cover story by staff reporter Bill Keller entitled " Nuclear Nightmares," on May 26, 2002. I first heard about this article on an early morning Public Radio interview with Keller broadcast over KPCC out of Pasadena City College, northeast of Los... Sign in to see full entry.

ELECTRIC CARS—DREAM OR REALITY

Why have pollution-free electric cars never caught on? Of the many reasons, the most pertinent is the relatively short range of every “practical” electric car developed thus far. Electric cars run on stored electricity. Most research has centered on more efficient batteries. Unfortunately, despite... Sign in to see full entry.

IS IT REALLY POSSIBLE...

...that I am the only person on BN interested in clean, inexpensive power? I have been writing for more than a decade about this vital subject. I get a lot of response to my writing here on BN, but to my total surprise, I have received the lowest number of responses to this, perhaps the most... Sign in to see full entry.

Energy Sources: Solar Power Satellites & Hydrogen

Where does usable energy on this planet come from? Three sources, actually. As our planet compressed during its formative stages it generated a lot of heat that is now stored inside the earth. We see evidence of this as not very useful volcanoes, and as very useful geothermal heat sources.... Sign in to see full entry.

RADIATION—OHMYGOSH! I'M GONNA DIE!

Step outside on a nice day and feel the sun’s warmth—that’s radiation; so’s the light. A body’s warmth is radiation. And radio waves. And television signals. And x-rays. And light from a glow worm’s tail. Radiation is energy transfer. It can take several forms. One is tiny mass-less packets called... Sign in to see full entry.

On March 10, 2002, The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times reported the release of a secret Pentagon paper, presenting the findings of the second Nuclear Posture Review (NPR). According to both newspapers, this report is a comprehensive plan for developing and deploying nuclear weapons. The... Sign in to see full entry.

I cannot believe...

...that I am the only one interested in clean, inexpensive power. I am looking for a discussion on the articles in this Blog: A New Look at the Nuclear Energy Option, Chernobyl: Reality and Myth, Nuclear Waste and Breeder Reactors - Myth and Promise, and Three Mile Island—The System that Worked!

Three Mile Island—The System that Worked!

Extract from my forthcoming book: The Other Shoe. The 1979 Three Mile Island nuclear reactor accident was caused by a sequence of errors—mechanical and human. Nevertheless, everything remained inside the containment building. There was essentially no release of harmful emissions. Had people reacted... Sign in to see full entry.

Green Brainwashing!

Have the greens so brainwashed people that no one is interested in unlimited, inexpensive, safe power?

Nuclear Waste and Breeder Reactors - Myth and Promise

In my earlier articles on nuclear power, I reviewed how fissile Uranium-235 drives a nuclear reactor, and how Uranium-238 participates in the process by transforming into Plutonium-239, which is fissile like Uranium-235. This phenomenon of nuclear physics lies at the heart of a conceptual blueprint... Sign in to see full entry.
