4-19-2010 Monday – Geoengineering

Here is a link to a ‘known’ environmentalist ‘warming‘ up to Geoengineering.  Stewart Brand is even warming up to Nuclear Power.  It is a shame we have fallen so far behind in building Nuclear Power Plants…Finally, in 2008, the state of Georgia signed on to build additional plants…and just this February President Obama signed on for $8.33 Billion in Loan Guarantees for the reactors…this is a start…but we need more…

Also, a link to Thursday’s Fresh Air on NPR interviewing Jeff Goodell about his new book, “How to Cool the Planet: Geoengineering and the Audacious Quest to Fix Earth’s Climate“.   This is the second book in just weeks to come out about Geoengineering.  Could Geoengineering be the “Plastics” of the 2-Thousand-Teens???

Here is a link to an interview on gizmodo.com with Eli Kintisch who wrote “Hack the Planet : Science’s Best Hope – or Worst Nightmare – for Averting Climate Catastrophe”   that I previously posted.

It is worth noting that neither of these books are available as eBooks on Barnes & Noble…but Amazon.com does have Kindle versions…if you have still not yet decided (and why are you waiting?) on your eReader please note that Amazon comes out with more titles faster in eBook format than B&N…hopefully the competition from Mr. Jobs and the ‘amazing-technicolor- iPad’ will close this gap…
