Comments Off on Paris climate summit may take longer than planned as world leaders attempt to get it right

For the past 10 days, world leaders have been meeting outside Paris to discuss the fate of the environment as we know it. The participating nations came to the table with preconceived strategies for regulating carbon emissions within their own borders, and negotiations are ongoing to draft an international agreement. A rough draft ( PDF ), issued on Wednesday, met with harsh criticism from climate scientists and conservationists who feel the parameters aren’t aggressive enough to save the Earth from its untimely demise.

Comments Off on Nuclear Plant Near San Andreas Fault Ran for Over a Year With Emergency Systems Disabled

Photo: emdot Flickr, CC 2.0 A common line I’ve been hearing in response to Japan’s ongoing nuclear crisis goes something like this: “Well, this would never happen here — our nuclear plants are designed to shut down in the event of a quake or some other disruption.” Of course, the Fukushima I plant was designed to shut down too, but the tsunami knocked out the secondary power required to kick the emergency system into motion.
