More proof that radiation and drinking water don’t mix

underground, vast reservoirs hold billions of gallons of water suitable for drinking, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Yet every day injection wells pump more than 200,000 gallons of toxic and radioactive waste from uranium mining into Christensen’s aquifers.

What is happening in this remote corner of Wyoming affects few people other than Christensen — at least for now.
But a roiling conflict between state and federal regulators over whether to allow more mining at Christensen Ranch — and the damage that comes with it — has pitted the feverish drive for domestic energy against the need to protect water resources for the future.

Welcome to a Kyoto-free-world: Best use was to show how bad a nanny-state-unfree-market is.
Goodbye to the Kyoto protocol. How well did those ambitious plans work out?  The government solution that aimed to reduce CO2 emissions by 5% achieved a 58% increase instead. Welcome to Case-Study #224 in Government failure. Kyoto climate change treaty sputters to a sorry end “The controversial and ineffective Kyoto Protocol’s first stage comes to an end today, leaving the world with 58 per cent more greenhouse gases than in 1990, as opposed to the five per cent reduction its signatories sought. From the beginning, the treaty that was adopted in 1997 in Kyoto, Japan, was problematic. To reduce

To The Guardian's enviro-scribe, George Monbiot, 2012 was the year we did our best to abandon the natural world.In 2012 governments turned their backs on the living planet, demonstrating that no chronic problem, however grave, will take priority over an immediate concern, however trivial. I believe there has been no worse year for the natural world in the past half-century....Their indifference

Do the work redux: The New Year’s resolution edition
PENANCE is coming in April 2013. Damn strange year for me, 2012. Not all good news, not even most of it. But on the writing side, it rocked. (WARNING: Shameless self-promotion paragraph follows.

A New Year Awaits
I’ve gotten so used to thinking ‘maybe this will be the year when the first Alpha Centauri planet is discovered’ that I almost said it again about 2013.
