Solar, Wind & Gas Cheaper Than Nuclear #energy
New wind and solar power systems can generate electricity up to 50% cheaper than new nuclear power plants. Nuclear power as well as carbon capture and storage are both more expensive than wind and solar power as a strategy for preventing climate change.

Scientists Create Solar Power in the Dark #energy
Photoswitches are a set of materials that act as their own batteries, absorbing energy and releasing it on demand. Scientists at MIT and Harvard University have devised a way to store solar energy in molecules that can then be tapped to heat homes, water or used for cooking.

It would also enable charging by flowing the material from a storage tank through a window or clear tube exposed to the sun and then to another storage tank, where the material would remain until it's needed. That way one could stockpile the charged material for use when the sun's not shining.

10 Reasons To Quit Your Job In 2014 #economy  
The middle class is dead. You’ve been replaced. Corporations don’t like you. Money is not happiness. Count right now how many people can make a major decision that can ruin your life. Is your job satisfying your needs? Your Retirement Plan is For S**t. Excuses. It's OK to take baby steps. Abundance will never come from your job.

Our hands are not made to type out memos. Or put paper through fax machines. Or hold a phone up while we talk to people we dislike. 100 years from now our hands will rot like dust in our graves. We have to make wonderful use of our hands now. Kiss our hands so they can make magic.

Any viable, zero-emission, energy resource that takes us away from fossil fuels is always a start in the right direction.

I guess +Nicholas Sammons he doesn't want another Fukushima in his parish. All 56 French reactors need billions of dollars re-work for the same reason. They're demolishing 15 nuclear reactors, anyway, as it would be too expensive nowadays to correct the design errors.

Today's UK Sinkhole Is In Strood #climate
A 19 feet deep chasm appeared unexpectedly when a white-line lorry fell through the surface of the road and got stuck at 12.30pm on Monday, but its full magnitude wasn’t apparent until the vehicle was pulled free.

Shiller PER At Year 1929 And 2000 Levels #economy
The 4 year bear market is beginning and the the Shiller PER currently sits at 25x, way above the historical average of 15x. It’s only been at these levels twice over the past century, in 1929 and 2000. We all know what happened in those years.

US Tech Stocks Sell-off Continues #economy
Weak financial results of several US companies, as well as the cooled-down investor sentiment, is driving stock prices down in this start of a four-year bear market. The Nasdaq index fell 3%, its worst day since November 2011.

The drop in the Nasdaq, where many technology-related companies are listed, is caused by concerns that stocks from the technology sector are overvalued.

Electric Cars Drive UK Demand For Electricity #energy
Margaret Thatcher would have blanched at the idea that a state-owned French company, Electricité de France (EDF), would hold major stakes in the UK electricity supply sector and own most of the former CEGB's nuclear power stations.
