Friends of the Earth's shift on nuclear should be celebrated, not denied 12.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
The green groups opposition is now less ideological and more functional, and thats a sign of maturity Nuclear power in the UK has turned out much safer than environmentalists worried it would be. Friends of the Earth, which feared the threat of a catastrophic Chernobyl-style meltdown in the UK, is now less concerned. Fear of nuclear armageddon was a driving force for the green movement in the UK Greenpeace has its name for a reason. Of course, there are real concerns about radiation, particularly around nuclear waste but I think it is important how this debate has shifted down the years. The real concern now is how we get on fast with de-carbonising our electricity supply. Its very clear that nuclear cant deliver big changes fast. Perhaps in the past our opposition to nuclear was gut instinct. Our position has now been refreshed. We dont want to close down the UK nuclear industry right away that would create far too many problems for energy supply over coming decades. But we still very much oppose ...

From the 'paperless office' to renewable energy, change leaves its critics behind | John Quiggin 11.9.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
We know that renewable energy poses a real threat to the viability of fossil fuels, so why are its critics so persistent? Look to the paperless office debate for an explanation The report of the Warburton inquiry , commissioned by Australias government as a hatchet job on the renewable electricity industry, has unintentionally demonstrated that renewables pose a real alternative to coal-fired electricity and are undermining the viability of incumbent generators. But can renewable energy provide a solution to the problem of decarbonising the economy? To understand the problems and the process, it is worth thinking about the paperless office ...

Japan's 2011 plant meltdown has torn apart close families, leaving elderly relatives isolated and villages uninhabited

More than three years since Japan's Fukushima nuclear disaster as many as 120,000 people from the region are living in nuclear limbo with once close-knit families forced to live apart.
