In remembrance of Jo Cox MP

Today, on what what would have been her birthday, we’d like to honour and remember Jo Cox MP, who dedicated her life to the belief that there is more that unites us than divides us. Help honour Jo by making a donation to her memorial fund: https://www.gofundme.com/jocox

My new Kindle Single ebook:

Everything you thought you knew about nuclear power is wrong. This is just as well, according to Mark Lynas in Nuclear 2.0, because nuclear energy is essential to avoid catastrophic global warming. Using the latest world energy statistics Lynas shows that with wind and solar still at only about 1 percent of global primary energy, asking renewables to deliver all the world’s power is “dangerously delusional”. Moreover, there is no possibility of using less energy, he reminds us, when the developing world is fast extricating itself from poverty and adding the equivalent of a new Brazil to global electricity consumption each year. The anti-nuclear movement of the 1970s and 80s succeeded only in making the world more dependent on fossil fuels, he shows: its history is “not lit by sunshine, but shrouded in coal smoke”. Instead of making the same mistake again, all those who want to see a low-carbon future need to join forces, he insists, concluding the book with an ambitious proposal for an Apollo Program-style combined investment in wind, solar and nuclear power.

My latest blogpost: review of Adam Rutherford's book 'Creation - the past and future of life':

Review of 'Creation', by Adam Rutherford, published by Viking/Penguin Buy from Amazon.co.uk: This book is divided into two sections, printed upside down and back to back. It is a neat little trick ...

This is a bit misleading. Are you comparing Hunger & Malnutrition vs. Infectious diseases? If so, most of the mortality occurs between 0 to 4 years. 

70% of childhood deaths (age 0-4) are reportedly due to diarrheal illness, acute respiratory infection, malaria and immunizable disease. However, of these childhood deaths, 56% can be attributed to the effects of malnutrition as an underlying cause. Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2486780/

For the rest of the population, Ischaemic heart disease, stroke, lower respiratory infections and chronic obstructive lung disease have remained the top major killers during the past decade. See. WHO Top 10 Causes of Death - http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs310/en/

My post on relative costs of solar, wind and nuclear in the UK:

Nobody seems to have noticed, in amongst all the hoopla about shale gas and whatnot, that the UK government has just announced the proposed ‘strike prices’ to be paid for electricity generated by l...
