    China Takes Lead in Race for Clean Nuclear Power

    China and India, the world’s TRUE top polluters, are seriously looking at green nuclear technology.

    Proponents of thorium MSRs, also known as liquid thorium reactors or sometimes as liquid fluoride thorium reactors (LFTRs), say the devices beat conventional solid fuel uranium reactors in all aspects including safety, efficiency, waste and peaceful implications.

    Among the claimed benefits: thorium waste cannot be easily shaped into a bomb; the waste lasts only hundreds of years rather than tens of thousands for uranium; thorium in liquid form burns more efficiently than solid uranium; liquid thorium reactors do not operate at dangerous high pressure; liquid thorium reactors cannot melt down.

    “Conference on Molten Salts in Nuclear Technology” at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, India from January 9-11, 2013. The conference is being organized under the aegis of Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences (BRNS), Department of Atomic Energy, India to strengthen and share the knowledge about molten salt processes & technologies available to nuclear science and technology.

    ‘Pandora’s Promise,’ a radically sane and important documentary about how nuclear power could save us

    When was the last time you saw a documentary that fundamentally changed the way you think? It’s no secret that just about every political and socially-minded documentary shown at Sundance is preaching to the liberal-left choir. The issue may be dairy farming, human rights abuses in Vladimir Putin’s Russia, the marketing of AIDS drugs, or Occupy Wall Street (to list the topics of four festival docs this year), but the point of view is almost always conventionally “progressive” and orthodox. So when Robert Stone, who may be the most under-celebrated great documentary filmmaker in America (watch Oswald’s Ghost if you want to touch the elusive truth of the JFK assassination), arrived at Sundance this year with Pandora’s Promise, a look at the myths and realities of nuclear power, he was walking into the lion’s den. For this isn’t a movie that preaches to the choir. It’s a movie that says: “Stop thinking what you’ve been thinking, because if you don’t, you’re going to collude in wrecking the world.” Pandora’s Promise is built around what should be the real liberal agenda: looking at an issue not with orthodoxy, but with open eyes.
    In Pandora’s Promise, Stone interviews a major swath of environmentalists, scientists, and energy planners, all of whom spent years being anti-nuclear power — and then, as they began to look at the evidence, changed their minds. The film begins with a deep examination of the psychology of the anti-nuclear view: how it took hold and became dogma. It goes all the way back to 1945, of course, and the horror of the atomic bomb. From that moment, really, the very word nuclear was tainted. It meant something that was going to kill you, in the form of lethal radiation that you can’t see. By the time of the “No Nukes” protests of the ’70s, to be “anti-nuclear” was to conflate nuclear weapons and nuclear power into a single category of scientific evil, a point of view whipped up, over the years, into a doctrinaire frenzy of righteous fear and loathing by anti-nuclear activists like Dr. Helen Caldicott and reinforced by movies like The China Syndrome and even, in its benign satirical way, The Simpsons.
    Stone, a lifelong environmental lefty himself, unravels that thinking. The film’s incredibly articulate — and deeply progressive — spokemen and women explain the nuts and bolts of why nuclear power, manufactured with the sophisticated breeder reactors that are available today, is fundamentally clean, efficient, and, yes, safe. As Richard Rhodes puts it in the movie: “To be anti-nuclear is basically to be in favor of burning fossil fuels.” Pandora’s Promise makes a powerful case that in an age when former Third World countries, striving for modernization, are beginning to consume energy in much vaster amounts (and why shouldn’t they have the right to do so?), none of the alternative energy sources that are commonly talked about by environmentalists (wind, solar, etc.) can begin to fill the planet’s energy needs. Only nuclear energy can. That’s why France, faced with its own energy crisis several decades ago, went nuclear. (Eighty percent of France’s energy is now generated by nuclear power plants.)

    A few weeks shy of his 65th birthday, the grandfather of three, Al Gore is free of the past and all about the future. More specifically, he’s all about The Future, his latest book. An attempt to sum up six key ­realities—he calls them drivers—that will shape the years ahead, Gore’s book touches every base: robots, deep-sea phosphorus, financial derivatives, even urine recycling and goats modified to secrete spider-silk proteins from their udders.

    From Bob’s link

    As rules by the Government are one-size-fits-all, any governmental determination of an individual’s abilities must be based on a bureaucratic assessment of the lowest possible denominator. The government, for example, has determined that black people (somehow) have fewer abilities than white people, and, so, must be given certain preferences. Anyone acquainted with both black and white people knows this assessment is not only absurd but monstrous. And yet it is the law.

    Then we act surprised at illiteracy rates and failing inner city schools graduation rates of 30 percent.
    When you reward this lowest possible denominator with more entitlement, you just get more in the lowest possible denominator

    Why Obama sent his moslem brother Morsi 200 Abrams tanks and 20 F-16s:

    He knew they’d be needed to secure Morsi’s shady electoral victory.

    He doesn’t have the same kind of compliant non-quesgtioning “opposition” party and lapdog State media the wonderboy has here in America.

    Who knows, with enough foreign aid shoveled at him, Morsi won’t need tanks to quell opposition.

The hotel will comprise of two discs – one under the water, and one suspended above the water. The discs will be connected by five legs, and a vertical shaft in the centre housing stairs and a lift.”

    Obama Pledges to Continue Crackdown on ‘Irresponsible Behavior’

    Maybe he can start by going after those who provide guns to Mexican drug gangs, those who fail to produce a budget even though it’s a Constitutional requirement and those who violate the requirements of his own stimulus law and other aspects of laws including the Constitution?

    Court says Obama appointments violate constitution

    President Barack Obama violated the Constitution when he bypassed the Senate last year to appoint three members of the National Labor Relations Board, a federal appeals court ruled Friday in a far-reaching decision that could severely limit a chief executive’s powers to make recess appointments.
    The decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit could invalidate hundreds of board decisions over the past year, including some that make it easier for unions to organize.
    The court found that that under the Constitution a recess occurs only during the breaks between formal year-long sessions of Congress, not just any informal break when lawmakers leave town. It also held that presidents can bypass the Senate only when administration vacancies occur during a recess.
    Under the court’s decision, 285 recess appointments made by presidents between 1867 and 2004 would be invalid.

    Obama Continues to Violate His Own ‘Stimulus’ Law by Not Releasing Quarterly Reports

    Have you heard much about President Obama’s $787,000,000,000 economic “stimulus” (now estimated to cost $831,000,000,000) lately? In its last report, published in 2011, the president’s own Council of Economic Advisors released an estimate showing that, for every $317,000 in “stimulus” spending that had by then gone out the door, only one job had been created or saved. Even in Washington, that’s not considered good bang for the buck.

    Moreover, that was the fifth consecutive “stimulus” report that showed this number getting progressively worse.

    Alas, that was the last report we’ve seen. Never mind that Section 1513 of the “stimulus” legislation, which Obama spearheaded and signed into law, requires the executive branch to submit a new report every three months.

    Why am I NOT surprised it is Obama’s home state that this story is from?

    Illinois’ credit rating downgraded; state drops to worst in the nation.

    That’s what happens when you let moonbats run things. CA isn’t far behind.

    “Our problem in Illinois is that we have not substantively and fairly addressed the state public pension issue.”

    State treasurer Dan Rutherford points to Governor Quinn and the Democrat controlled general assembly for making matters worse in the last two years– raising taxes but not acting on pension reform.

    Comprehensive immigration reform could make millions of people suddenly eligible for assistance under President Obama’s healthcare law

    This is going to be the next big push for new permanent Democrat votes:

    Illegal aliens are now prohibited from purchasing coverage through the Affordable Care Act’s insurance exchanges, which will launch next year.
    They are also ineligible for Medicaid under most circumstances, making the law’s expansion of the program fruitless for people without documents.
    Even young illegal immigrants with “deferred action” status, known as “DREAMers,” cannot access the law’s benefits.

    Brown on black crime on the rise in Compton.

    A Latino gang is intimidating blacks into leaving the city that was once an African American enclave. It’s part of a violent trend seen in other parts of the L.A. area.

    The black family—a mother, three teenage children and a 10-year-old boy—moved into a little yellow home in Compton over Christmas vacation.

    When a friend came to visit, four men in a black SUV pulled up and called him a “ni&&er,” saying black people were barred from the neighborhood, according to Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies. They jumped out, drew a gun on him and beat him with metal pipes.

    Here it comes, exactly what we warned about with regards to socialized medicine:

    Be ready when obamacare death panels rule that fat smokers should be allowed to just die.

    Faced with the high cost of caring for smokers and overeaters, experts say society must grapple with a blunt question: Instead of trying to penalize them and change their ways, why not just let these health sinners die prematurely from their unhealthy habits?

    9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s trial threatened by ‘legal dispute’

    The trial of September 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed has been thrown into turmoil by a legal dispute that could hand the terror suspect and his alleged co-conspirators strong grounds for appeal, a report has said.

    What nonsense.

    ‘Take me Seriously’ – ‘Look at my Boobs’

    Oh yeah! Now what was your message again?

    I tell them, “write the message on your boobs and men will read it, especially if you use Braille” but they just won’t listen.

    I’ve known women both highly competent and highly incompetent. It seems to me if you need to show boobs to make a point; you are solidly cemented in the latter.

    There’s got to be a poster over at LiberalLogic about moonbat women who demand we take them seriously but go around topless (or totally nude) for a variety of causes or just because.

    Are they protesting a sagging economy or a firm economy.

    Wasn’t it a bit nipply in Davos?

    Bet they wished it was hooter

    Seriously, they milked their protest for all it was worth!

    Apparently they didn’t get any support.

    We should all keep abreast of this story.

    Nothing challenges sexism and male domination of the world economy better than women objectifying themselves by showing off their girlie parts.

    Some funny stuff over at powerline. Great pictures.

    Extinction reports are greatly exaggerated

    “Based on the mathematical proof and empirical data, we prove that the overestimate can be as much as 160%, so previous estimates should be divided by roughly 2.5.”

    Chances are the overestimates are much, much higher, but this admission is a start.

    In short, the extinction rates claimed by the IPCC because of “global warming” turned out to be nothing but more bad math.

    How many of these dead were killed with a Bushmaster or a Glock? Or any of the guns on the Feinstein Index?

    You can bet your house that not a single LEGAL gun was involved. Unless you want to count the guns used by the police.

  28. Bob Roberts says:

    Some greeniacs start to see the light – too litte, too late?

    I want to start with some apologies. For the record, here and upfront, I apologise for having spent several years ripping up GM crops. I am also sorry that I helped to start the anti-GM movement back in the mid 1990s, and that I thereby assisted in demonising an important technological option which can be used to benefit the environment.

    As an environmentalist, and someone who believes that everyone in this world has a right to a healthy and nutritious diet of their choosing, I could not have chosen a more counter-productive path. I now regret it completely.

    So I guess you’ll be wondering – what happened between 1995 and now that made me not only change my mind but come here and admit it? Well, the answer is fairly simple: I discovered science, and in the process I hope I became a better environmentalist.

    It would be nice if more moonbats would “discover science”. I’d settle if they would just discover reality.

  29. Bob Roberts says:

    Here is a problem with moonbats, from the above link (my last post). The problem is THEY REALLY BELIEVE THIS:

    “…the only facts that mattered were the ones published in the most distinguished scholarly journals.”

    But what if those “facts” are wrong?

    Obviously they’re NOT the “only facts that matter”.

    Here are some more important quotes:

    I discovered that one by one my cherished beliefs about GM turned out to be little more than green urban myths.

    I’d assumed that it would increase the use of chemicals. It turned out that pest-resistant cotton and maize needed less insecticide.

    I’d assumed that GM benefited only the big companies. It turned out that billions of dollars of benefits were accruing to farmers needing fewer inputs.

    I’d assumed that Terminator Technology was robbing farmers of the right to save seed. It turned out that hybrids did that long ago, and that Terminator never happened.

    I’d assumed that no-one wanted GM. Actually what happened was that Bt cotton was pirated into India and roundup ready soya into Brazil because farmers were so eager to use them.

    I’d assumed that GM was dangerous. It turned out that it was safer and more precise than conventional breeding using mutagenesis for example; GM just moves a couple of genes, whereas conventional breeding mucks about with the entire genome in a trial and error way.

    But what about mixing genes between unrelated species? The fish and the tomato? Turns out viruses do that all the time, as do plants and insects and even us – it’s called gene flow.
