Following my first top 37 green stories post yesterday, here’s some top green news and commentary from the past day or so.
Germany will shut down all its nuclear power stations by 2020, according to the government’s Secretary of State for the Environment and Nuclear Safety, Jürgen Becker.
His comments were made earlier today to Reuters during a meeting of the International Renewable Energy Association (IREA) in the United Arab Emirates.
I’ve compiling and sharing top green news from around the internet on 7 news pages here on Planetsave for about a month now. Perhaps you’ve noticed that, perhaps not.
I’ve decided to pull out what I think are the top 37 (this number could increase) stories each day and share them in morning posts on Planetsave as well — for those who don’t want to skim through hundreds of stories or who are dedicated to RSS or email news.
Here’s an interesting infographic for you — all you wanted to know about radiation and more. A nice follow-up to the radiation dose chart I shared last week.
I wrote a short piece last week on onshore wind energy being cost-competitive with coal in some regions. Now, EU climate chief Connie Hedegaard has added that offshore wind energy is cheaper than nuclear.
On Friday, March 18, four major medical and scientific organizations*, including The Endocrine Society, and the Society of Nuclear Medicine, issued a joint public statement concerning the real risks from the recent, ongoing nuclear crisis in Japan.
This is a totally awesome radiation dose chart via xkcd that my sister shared with me. Interesting…
In the midst of the ongoing nuclear crisis in Japan, it has been interesting to see how the world’s leading countries and politicians are responding. If I had even an ounce of hope that Republicans could come around on energy policy in the face of this catastrophe, I think I completely lost it this week.
