Boomeranged

A very interesting tidbit from The Professor.

Seems those bombs used by the motorcyclists (that killed the Iranian scientist) were recycled from weapons provided by Iran to al-Qaeda in Iraq.

Don’t START

It’s a One Way treaty.

Obama to push Senate on START

Be sure to read the comments at the bottom of the article.

Dual Purpose Virus

Now this is very, very interesting.

The Professor notes the Stuxnet computer virus has made the leap from technology to humans.

Read his post to discover how.

The last two sentences are true gems.

Energy More Or Less

Have we got shortages and blackouts to look forward to?

Perhaps we could learn something from India and develop one, and more (lots more), of these.

Calculated Cluelessness

What was once top secret is no more.

Trouble is, as I see it, the POTUS just gave information to both our enemies without and within.

UPDATE: Green Nuclear Power

No, it is not a joke. And today is not April 1st.

Thorium can be the next (would have been the first) nuclear power source that DOES NOT produce over thousands of years of toxic waste. It can practically eliminate the risks of meltdown (with a new reactor design). And, we have around 175,000 tons of thorium in the U.S.

This was being explored in the 1950’s, but uranium was chosen instead for its nastier toxic byproducts.

We want more electrical energy. Independence. Reduce coal usage?

Here it may be. We just need the will to progress in this direction.

UPDATE: Apparently, I was caught up in the heat of the moment. I should have read a little more. My thanks to the commenter.
