Nuclear Electrical Power Generation – Why The Fuss? – Introduction

October 19, 2010 by


UPDATE 2012.  This series is now more than three years old, and while nearly all the information is generic and still current, what is not current is the Post dealing with costings. This Post was based around information available at the time, almost four years old now, and that information changes quite regularly, so constantly […]

What Future For Kyoto

May 11, 2010 by


Twenty seven months ago, I started a series on the implications of The Kyoto Protocol. What I hoped to do was to explain that if you believed in (Man Made) Global Warming, and hoped that this Protocol would provide the answer, then your belief in that had consequences. Right from that first post, I stated […]

December 24, 2009 by


HOW TEN WORDS WRITTEN IN 1997 KILLED OFF COPENHAGEN. No matter what the spin might ever hope to achieve, Copenhagen was a huge flop. Because major World leaders actually did show up, they had to try and come away with something positive, so these people wouldn’t be absolutely humiliated, which, if the truth is to […]

Copenhagen – Money And Power

December 14, 2009 by


WHY DID SO MANY DEVELOPING COUNTRIES WALK AWAY FROM THE COPENHAGEN CONFERENCE AND WHY IS THE ORIGINAL KYOTO PROTOCOL SO IMPORTANT? During the election campaign, then Senator Obama never came out and directly said that he would be ratifying the Kyoto protocol of 1997, but the suggestion from reading between the lines was that this […]
