Germany should immediately refund some €2.2 billion in nuclear fuel taxes collected from EOn and RWE, pending final decisions on the tax from either the Federal Constitutional Court or the European Court of Justice.
A binding decision to construct and finance the Hanhikivi nuclear power plant in Finland has been made by the shareholders of Fennovoima, including Russian state nuclear company Rosatom.
The USA's only floating nuclear power plant will be decommissioned by CB&I under a $34.7 million contract. The MH-1A reactor provided power to the Panama Canal zone before being shut down in 1976.
Analysis: 3 Reasons Not to Trust the New UN IPCC Climate Report: ‘The IPCC acts as investigator, prosecutor, judge, and jury. It has a long history of recruiting activist personnel, and is led by a man prone to exaggeration’
Bravo! GOP Congressman Ted Yoho of Florida calls global warming ‘agenda-driven science. I can read stuff that says that the information was skewed. It’s not right’
Congressman Denies Manmade Climate Change, Calls It ‘An Agenda-Driven Science’ http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2014/04/15/3426668/ted-yoho-climate-denier/ Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) addresses a town hall meeting in Gainesville, Florida. CREDIT: Scott Keyes GAINESVILLE, Florida — Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) readily admits he’s “not smart enough” to determine the roots of climate change. He is, however, able to rule out one possible [...]
Large glycosylating toxins are major virulence factors of various species of pathogenic Clostridia. Prototypes are Clostridium difficile toxins A and B, which cause antibiotics-associated diarrhea and pseudomembranous colitis. The current model of the toxins’ action suggests that receptor binding is mediated by a C-terminal domain of combined repetitive oligopeptides (CROP)....
There has been increasing interest in the use of isoform-selective inhibitors of phosphatidylinositide-3-kinase (PI3K) in cancer therapy. Using conditional deletion of the p110 catalytic isoforms of PI3K to predict sensitivity of cancer types to such inhibitors, we and others have demonstrated that tumors deficient of the phosphatase and tensin homolog...
Dopamine (DA) transmission from the ventral tegmental area (VTA) is critical for controlling both rewarding and aversive behaviors. The transient silencing of DA neurons is one of the responses to aversive stimuli, but its consequences and neural mechanisms regarding aversive responses and learning have largely remained elusive. Here, we report...

Award-Winning Former UN IPCC Scientist Dr. Lennart Bengtsson Dissents: ‘We cannot yet separate well enough the greenhouse effect from other climate influences’ – Declares climate models ‘more a matter of faith than a fact’

Satellite data shows CO2 does not control Earth’s radiative balance or climate http://hockeyschtick.blogspot.com/2014/04/satellite-data-shows-co2-does-not.html Dr. Roy Spencer has an interesting post today analyzing several satellite datasets, which suggest “some portion of recent warming was simply due to a natural decrease in cloud cover.”Dr. Spencer also finds an independent method of determining Earth’s radiative fluxes [fig 6 [...]
http://dailycaller.com/2014/04/14/un-says-the-world-needs-cap-and-trade-carbon-taxes/ In order to keep global temperatures from rising above two degrees Celsius by 2100, the world needs to lower its use of fossil fuels, like coal and oil, between 40 percent and 70 percent. This can be done by acting immediately and putting a global price on carbon dioxide emissions, either through a tax [...]
Warmist psychiatrist Robert Jay Lifton admits climate ‘fear’ is ‘useful’ – ‘A certain amount of fear can be useful when combined with hope. In our climate struggles, that hope should not be sought in misleading claims of technological magic’
