Index / Climate Change (Global Warming or Cooling)
Whether we like it or not, climatology has become bogged down in politics, and has been political for the past few years. The power groups backing energy resources all have strong political action programs to impact American opinion to such an extent that the actual technical and environmental merits or de-merits of using the various sources of energy have become foggy with their involvement, whether it involves wind, solar, geothermal, nuclear, natural gas, or other forms of energy.

The Gallup poll monitors opinions on a wide variety of topics. Whether the Gallup polls are valid a... More →

Whether we like it or not, the selection of energy sources to power the American electrical grid is bogged down in politics, and has been political for a long time. The power groups backing coal, oil and gas, and nuclear all have strong political action programs to impact American opinion to such an extent that the actual technical and environmental merits or de-merits have become foggy with their involvement.

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Economics - Nuclear Power
James Conca asks the question ... Can we be confident that we can handle our nuclear waste in America. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has just made a small but incredibly important decision about nuclear waste that could finally get nuclear energy moving forward again. In response to a 2012 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals, the NRC approved a generic environmental impact statement that clears the way for storing spent nuclear fuel for a hundred years or more - NRC Ruling. New nuclear power plants can now be built without waiting for a final nuclear waste repository to be built. This is i... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Economics - Nuclear Power
Javier E. David reports that even as the U.S. shale boom has sent oil and gas production skyrocketing, interest in alternative energy has increased, while still under government subsidy. Yet nuclear power is largely shunned by environmentalists - otherwise known as adversaries - who see the fuel source as too costly and inherently dangerous, both of which are either exaggerated or just wrong.

That, however, may be changing. Last week, more than 200 United Nations researchers announced support for nuclear energy, calling for a tripling of output within the coming years as a means to ... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Economics - Nuclear Power
Tom Hartsfield reports that 1996 was the last year that a commercial nuclear reactor came online in the U.S. That project, at the Watts Barr plant in Tennessee, began in 1973. We have not built a new facility in 40 years. A new startup company called UPower is hoping to thaw some of this frozen market. Their plan is to think small. Currently, it is very difficult to open a new plant in the U.S. The reasons for this are well known, but they boil down to overregulation.

A continuous increase in the number and complexity of regulations beginning in the early 1970s caused the material... More →

Index / Climate Change (Global Warming or Cooling)
David H. Bailey and Jonathan M. Borwein report that with movements such as young-earth creationism, we certainly have seen examples of religion being shanghaied into the service of anti-science. But some recent rhetoric in opposition to environmentalism and climate change science takes the cake. For example, E. Calvin Beisner, leader of the Cornwall Alliance - a consortium of evangelical clergy - has declared that environmental movement is deadly to the gospel of Jesus Christ, and that believing in climate change is an insult to God. On November 30, 2012, in a televised discussion with his col... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Economics - Nuclear Power
Bob Audette reports that the five-member board that oversees the Nuclear Regulatory Commission on Tuesday voted to end a two-year moratorium on issuing new power plant licenses. The moratorium was in response to a June 2012 decision issued by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia that ordered the NRC to consider the possibility that the federal government may never take possession of the nearly 70,000 metric tons of spent nuclear fuel stored at power plant sites scattered around the country. In addition to lifting the moratorium, the five-member board also approved guidance re... More →

Index / Climate Change (Global Warming or Cooling)
Ben Adler reports that in March 2007, the E.U. adopted climate and energy goals for 2010 to 2020. The 27 member countries set a goal of reducing carbon emissions 20 percent by 2020 and increasing renewables to 20 percent of their energy portfolio. Unfortunately, they underestimated the carbon intensity of burning wood - a.k.a. biomass - for electricity, and they categorized wood as a renewable fuel.

The result is that E.U. countries with smaller renewable sectors turned to wood to replace coal. Governments provided incentives for energy utilities to make that switch. Now, with a bun... More →

Index / Climate Change (Global Warming or Cooling)
Dr. Conca reports that we have been hearing that the Earth is not really heating since the mean global surface temperatures have been almost flat for the last 17 years. But there is no hiatus, no lull, and no reverse in global warming the Earth is just warming in different ways. Indeed, there is more than one way to heat a planet.

As a geologist, this is no surprise given the complexity of planetary heat transfer and other global processes. Some areas get colder, some hotter, some drier, some even get more snow as the winters get warmer. The average temperature of the lower atmosphe... More →

Index / Coal / Graphite, Graphene, and Carbon Uses
Dave Smith reports that the extraordinary features and benefits of graphene make it sound like it was taken out of a comic book, e.g., adamantium, vibranium, but while the super material could change our world as we know it, graphene must overcome several obstacles related to viability before it is ready for mass usage.

Using graphene is a complicated technology to deliver. The race to find value is more of a marathon than a sprint.

It may be awhile until graphene is readily available to the public - the material was finally isolated only a decade ago - but scientific... More →
