In the Carnival as a whole, Brian Wang of Next Big Future describes China's revised plans for new reactors (only 40 or so!). Rod Adams of Atomic Insights describes the potential start-up of a nuclear-based investment fund, and Dan Yurman of Idaho Samizdat describes other investment decisions (with odd twists) in nuclear energy. Wes Deason at ANS Nuclear Cafe describes the role of plutonium in spacecraft, and Gail Marcus of Nuke Power Talk has a sense of Deja Vu about the effect of the turmoil in the Middle East about energy decisions. Steve Skutnik of Neutron Economy combats the lack of numerical reasoning among some renewables supporters (no number, however high, of wind turbines actually equals a nuclear plant's output). At Yes Vermont Yankee, I discuss the implications of the recent court decision for upcoming Public Service Board deliberations.
Wonderful posts, puzzling pictures, who could ask for anything more? Come to the Carnival! If nothing else, you can read it during the football breaks, between commercials. Great job, Will Davis!
