This rainbow was visible from my house this morning. It is one of the clearest rainbows I have ever seen. Both the primary and secondary rainbows are visible in the picture.

This week's edition of NewScientist features an article by Jeremy Leggett warning us about a new crisis in the making. Curiously enough, he ends his article with a call for a worldwide effort to rapidly develop clean industries and strategies to transform our energy system from the core, which is very similar to the call made by former Japan Prime Minister, Naoto Kan, in his article “Encountering the Fukushima Daiichi Accident”, which I commented about few days ago. http://lnkd.in/bU2tdPm

I stumbled on the reference to the article below while reading a recent Linkedin post by Javier Sanz, a former colleague from the times I was working at the National Renewable Energy Centre of Spain (CENER). I found both the article and the comments of the readers quite interesting.

Please, find below a link to a very interesting article about Nuclear Energy and the Fukushima accident by the former Prime Minister of Japan Naoto Kan. As you can see, he finishes his article with the following observation, which I am sure many of you will subscribe:

"If all nations make serious efforts to develop new technologies, I believe it's more than possible that in fifty years we mankind will have all our energy needs met entirely by natural [renewable] energy."
