Index / Climate Change and Associated Issues
Jesse Jenkins opines that By 2030, the U.S. EPA believes that their regulations on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from power plants will cut carbon emissions from the electricity sector 32 percent compared to 2005 levels. Reaching that goal depends on one big assumption, however - that the aging fleet of 99 nuclear reactors that now supply about one-fifth of the American electricity continues operating.

As a new analysis recently published by Third Way makes clear, if existing reactors retire en masse, it could be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to meet the EPA carbon reduc... More →

Sandi Doughton reports from Seattle that the initial results from a program to monitor the Cascadia Subduction Zone in unprecedented detail show that the fault off the Northwest coast is not as seismically quiet as it has long appeared. Seafloor seismometers deployed as part of the NSF Cascadia Initiative detected nearly 600 small earthquakes off central Oregon during their first year of operation, quakes that did not register on any land-based instruments.

Though the subduction zone can unleash magnitude-9 megaquakes and tsunamis, there is no reason to think the small tremors are u... More →

David Roberts of Vox Energy and Environment says that Katie Couric recently interviewed Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, and the subject of climate change came up. They discussed it for over four minutes, likely marking the longest any national GOP political figure has spent talking about climate change in the past five years.

Conservatives are delighted with the Fiorina performance. Thrilled. Pumped. They think she crushed Couric and showed how to outwit liberals on climate change. In fact, Fiorina comments are a farrago of falsehoods and red herrings, a derp differ... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Exploration, Mining, Marketing, Acquisitions
A Uranium One, Inc. video. Conventional mining involves extracting uranium ore from the ground and processing it to extract the minerals being sought. ISR (in situ recovery, also known as in situ leaching or solution mining) involves using liquids (commonly referred to as leaching liquors or lixivants) which are pumped through the orebody while it is in the ground to recover the minerals out of the ore by leaching. Consequently there is little surface disturbance and no tailings or waste rock are generated. However, the orebody needs to be permeable to the liquids used, and located so that th... More →

Index / Climate Change and Associated Issues
Dr. Conca reports that it is understandable that people discussing global warming focus on air temperatures. Lower atmospheric temperatures are shown on the news and weather reports every day. We walk around in the air. We breathe it in. We talk about how hot it has been this summer, how warm last winter was, or how this is the hottest day on record.

But global warming is all about water. Water, not the atmosphere, drives the weather, and drives climate. The atmosphere is mostly affected by the water on Earth, not the other way around. Atmospheric temperatures are volatile. Not so o... More →

The Kazatomprom National Atomic Company has approved a new development strategy for 2015-2025, which provides for the preservation of the leading positions of the company and Kazakhstan on the extraction of natural uranium, RIA Novosti news agency reported with reference to the Kazatomprom.

Implementation of the strategy will make it possible for Kazatomprom and Kazakhstan to preserve the achieved leading positions on production of natural uranium in the world, said the message. In order to do that, the company will develop existing mines and build the new ones, as well as introduce... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry
Dr. Conca opines that no one has ever died because of Swedish nuclear power. Nuclear power provides 40% of that countrys electricity, same as hydropower. Nuclear has avoided over 2 billion tons of CO2 emissions since 1980, same as hydro. Replacing nuclear with fossil fuel would kill an additional 50,000 people or so over the next 20 years and would triple carbon emissions.

Since 2011, Sweden has been a net exporter of low-carbon electricity to other parts of Europe. Sweden is farther along in its commercial nuclear waste disposal program than most countries (SKB TR-10-52), and is bu... More →

Rare Earth Minerals and Bacanora Minerals Ltd., the joint venture partners of the Sonora Lithium Project in Northern Mexico have finalized a conditional long-term lithium hydroxide supply agreement with Tesla Motors, Inc., the maker of electric vehicles and energy storage solutions.

The Sonora Lithium Project Partners are working to develop a mineral-rich, lithium-bearing clay deposit into a planned low-cost sustainable and environmentally conscious mining operation. It is estimated that the mine and processing facility will have an initial production capacity of approximately 35,00... More →

Index / Mining & Minerals / Off-World Exploration and Mining
The staff at Planetary Resources say that when traditional mining companies evaluate a potential mining target, they have many general things in mind:

1. Is it technically feasible? 2. How much will it cost? 3. How much risk is involved, and 4. Will it yield a profitable return?

But the details get more challenging in choosing an asteroid target to explore for possible mining in space. The goals are the same, but the variables can be much different, and more difficult to assess.

An ore is any material that can be recovered from a mining or drilling site and sol... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Related Environmental Issues / Environmental Impact - Cases, Nuclear Wastes
After the baking heat of a Virginia summer, the spent fuel pool at Surry Nuclear Power station, which sits on the James river in the south-east of the state, looks almost inviting. That would be unwise. Some 25 feet below the surface of the clear blue water, the tops of radioactive fuel assemblies glisten. Every 18 months or more, a new load of spent fuel - uranium pellets encased in zirconium - is removed from the power station two reactors and put into the pool, which absorbs the excess heat and some of the most dangerous (and short-lived) radiation. There it sits for five years, before bein... More →
