It's Final -- Corn Ethanol Is Of No Use


OK, can we please stop pretending biofuel made from corn is helping the planet and the environment? With huge subsidies for ethanol in gasoline, with all States now selling gasoline having some ethanol blend, and a general misconception that these biofuels are green, corn ethanol has taken on a $30 billion/yr life of its own.

Fukushima Update 44/19

Fukushima Commentary –

San Luis Obispo shows us how to expose antinuclear pseudo-science

Last week, the San Luis Obispo County Public Health Department posted a rejection of J. Mangano's claim of elevated health risks from the routine operation of the Diablo Canyon nuclear station. The SLO rebuttal concludes "There are substantial and obvious problems in methodology wherein basic statistical precepts were overlooked. In addition, the study shows selection bias in choosing case and control groups.” The SLO report should become a model for response to antinuclear pseudo-science. http://www.hiroshimasyndrome.com/fukushima-commentary.html
