This does not mean we'll get right to the posts without asking you.. "What is this?"
“For some reason the rich guys like however Tri-Alpha presented,” says Brian Wang...
What is really needed to effectively reduce emissions of CO2 and
unhealthy pollutants? Jim Hopf takes a look at the situation with the
European Union's energy policies - and finds a bizarre case in which
cap-and-trade combined with renewable-specific mandates and subsidies
work at cross purposes.
Meanwhile, subsidies for ultra-low-emission nuclear energy, in contrast
to the outright mandating of renewables, is a point of great contention.
Result: high costs of power generation, coupled with high emissions.
But there is a relatively simple way to rectify.
By the way -- as some of you know, I've stood right where this photo was taken. Years back I had the opportunity to do some work on the NS Savannah, and toured many normally off limits spaces with the then-curator of the Patriots Point Naval Museum. I'm doing this particular feature this time for the Carnival because ... over 20 years later ... I will set foot again on this ship NEXT WEEK as part of the American Nuclear Society's Winter Meeting. You'll see full coverage of that tour on the ANS Nuclear Cafe blog.
I really look forward to both a very active ANS Winter Meeting... and a very fantastic tour at the end of it that has historical tones, nostalgic tones, and implications for the future. You'll see the full story at ANS Nuclear Cafe --- so don't miss it!
