Japan nuclear industry gets a win in court here.
Hereâ€™s an update on Chinaâ€™s progress.
Go GO Goshutes!Â
Meanwhile all is not glum in the US, BLM closed the public comment filing period for Private Fuel Storageâ€™s bid to open an nuclear waste storage facility at the Skull Valley Goshute reservationÂ Thursday. Most of the comments are negative, but in light of current events I suspect that this will go through. Environmentalists, the Latter Day Saints, and Utah politicians make for strange bedfellows in opposition.
For a good overview on why some political divides heal in face of new technology, I recommend reading â€œThe Future and Its Enemiesâ€ by Virginia Postrel. The book is a seminal work, and very entertaining. You might not agree with conclusions, but the book will make you think of things from a different perspective. My favoriteÂ quote from the book that says much in very simple terms once youâ€™ve read it:
â€œThe futureâ€™s going to happen.â€ â€” Virginia Postrel
