Karla Lant reports that Dutch historian Rutger Bregman gave a TED talk on universal basic income (UBI) in which he explored this loaded question ... Why do the poor make such poor decisions? His answer was simple ... people in poverty save less money, eat less healthful foods, and do drugs more often because their basic needs are not met.

UBI is the simplest, fastest way to meet those needs for everyone, without danger of unfairness, Bregman argued. It is his position that the need and the means to establish UBI already exist, and only action and the will to implement it remain unfi... More →

U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry has issued a Determination permitting the Department of Energy to continue making uranium transfers to support ongoing clean-up work at the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant in Ohio, while also reducing the total amount of those transfers per year from 1,600 metric tons of uranium (MTU) to 1,200 MTU.

An analysis conducted by DOE to inform this Determination found that future transfers for cleanup work at a rate of up to 1,600 MTU per year would not constitute an adverse material impact to the domestic uranium mining, conversion, and enrichment in... More →

Welcome to Planet Hunters. With your help, we are looking for planets around other stars. The NASA Kepler spacecraft is one of the most powerful tools in the search for extrasolar planets (exoplanets), planets orbiting stars outside of our own Solar System, and its discoveries continue to revolutionize our understanding of how planetary systems grow and evolve. Approximately every 30 minutes, Kepler monitors the brightness of many thousands of stars simultaneously for the signature of exoplanets via the transit technique. When an exoplanet passes or transits in front of its parent star, the st... More →

David Stanway reports that the nuclear-energy industry needs an annual investment of $80 billion in order to meet climate change goals, the director of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said on Friday. Dohee Hahn told a nuclear industry conference in China that between 10 and 20 reactors will need to be built every year through 2030, if the global temperature rise is to be held to within 2 degrees.

The agency estimates that total global nuclear capacity needs to reach 862 gigawatts by 2040, up from 376 gigawatts in 2014, in order to meet the goals set in the Paris agreem... More →

Kim Riley reports that cybersecurity threats to the U.S. electric grid are growing, Fowke said, offering a personal corporate example. Last year, Xcel Energy identified more than 500,000 individual cyberattacks on its networks and already this year, the company reports a 10% increase in various intrusions over the same period in 2016.

While most cyberattacks against a utility are similar to the attacks targeting any other company in that cybercriminals and hackers seek personal or corporate data, attempt to defraud the company or its customers, or hold the company network hostage in... More →

To understand and predict the behavior of volcanoes an increasing number of scientists are combining geological monitoring and geochemical models. By measuring and monitoring the prevalence of gases like CO2, scientists hope to be able to better predict the likelihood of volcanic eruptions.

In 2010 Iceland Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupted, releasing 250 million cubic meters of ash into the atmosphere. The eruption disrupted 100,000 flights and 10 million journeys, bringing the global aviation industry to a standstill and costing hundreds of millions of dollars.

Meng Fanbin and Yuan Hui report that nontoxic colorant from rare earths is expected to be put into full production in the current year in Baotou, the biggest city in the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, following a decision by the local government to upgrade the rare earths industry to value-added processes against previously mining the raw materials.

Due to its perfect coloring and nontoxic properties the coloring agent, mainly for plastics and leathers, can replace most existing dyes in the market, said Zhang Hongjie, inventor of the colorant and member of the Chinese Academy of ... More →

UEX Corp has increased the width of the new discovery zone along the western margin of the Orora Zone at the Christie Lake project in Canada. With its latest results, UEX said it had identified an ultra-high grade structural trap ranging from 8-16 meters wide, skirted by a halo of uranium mineralisation.

President and CEO Roger Lemaitre said the team had begun to understand the orientation of the deposit and was eagerly awaiting the summer drill program. UEX Corp rated highly in the RSC Mining & Mineral Exploration drill results table last month with earlier drilling from its wi... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry

Koerth-Baker opined in 2016 that this is the face of nuclear development in the U.S. today ... slow, over-budget, economically untenable. Yet the dream of a nuclear-powered society is still alive. Nationwide, the U.S. gets about 20% of our electricity from nuclear. It produces the lion share (64%) of the U.S. clean energy, provided that by clean, she means anything but fossil fuels. In addition to Watts Bar 2 there are four other reactors currently under construction in this country, signaling that perhaps America has a renewed interest in going nuclear.
