James Hansen's Passionate New Climate Change Paper


James Hansen's Passionate New Climate Change Paper

The Economist, The Economist


ARE heatwaves more common than they used to be? That is the question addressed by James Hansen and his colleagues in a paper just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Their conclusion is that they are—and the data they draw on do not even include the current scorcher that is drying up much of North America and threatening its harvest.

What Role for China in the U.S. Battery Industry?

Now that A123 Systems, one of the largest recipients of government-funded battery R&D largesse, may become Chinese-owned, the federal government will have to face the question of whether, and on what terms, Chinese-owned companies will be given access to U.S. battery and advanced materials technology. Despite the clear challenges that U.S. firms manufacturing have faced in these areas, U.S. battery and advanced materials technology continues to be the best in the world—and the Chinese know it.http://theenergycollective.com/jim-greenberger/102241/what-role-china-us-battery-industry?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=The+Energy+Collective+%28all+posts%29&utm_content=Google+Reader
