Fukushima–the other shoe dropping six years later

I have eased off on pronouncements on Fukushima over the past year or so. For those of you not following, several reactors went into full meltdown after the town of Fukushima, Japan was hit by a giant tsunami six  years ago (the anniversary is coming up).Every indication is that things are getting worse. Reports from […]

“I feel a great disturbance in the Force”–2017 so far

Not clear if he’s been hacked yet, […]

New numbers from Sam Carana

I’ve become enamored (if this is the right word) with charts of late. Charts and graphs of our current plight are easier to absorb than pictures like the above (especially when embellished with the word of an angry scientist). Graphs and charts have a nice neutrality to them–it’s easy to wish for them to represent […]
