US and European nuclear experts and observers emphasise that an industry which has previously been geared up for expansion may have little acquaintance with decommission costs, and shortage of nuclear engineers. It is viewed as an emerging market of somet €80.4bn as an estimated spend for global decommissioning in the next 25 year with some 200 reactors to be shut down by 2040.

Long time a happy user of Petrol Prices which does a price comparison of local garages saving many pennies seeing offered what in the way of diesel prices and how far away one had to drive to reach the fuel, Gaberlunzie has been using a energy supplier swtiching scheme also from Petrol Prices.
A new kind of clean, cheap battery that stores energy from solar and wind power has come to market. It is claimed as by far the cheapest of a new generation of large, long-lived batteries that could make it possible to rely heavily on intermittent, renewable energy sources.
Lesley Anne Glover, CBE, FRSE and FASM is a Scottish biologist and Professor of Molecular and Cell biology at the University of Aberdeen. But best of all, she can now put her indubitable skills to use where they are sorely needed, not wasting them as chief scientific adviser to the President of the European Commission, who is to dispose of all his policy advisors and clearly determined to get rid of the brightest women players too.
Gaberluzie was going to cover the marvellous Rosetta and Philae adventures using Leicestor University and its Professor Stan Cowley in-depth knowledge en route to landing on the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and the recovery of a host of information, even if the little robot worker is not empowered by the sun ever again.
A New York Times article on the Failure Age may well be the coining of a descriptor term 'failurage' that not only addresses the impact of excessive innovatio, but also inevitable and implicitly hurtful accompanying impact.
Like most people, Gaberlunzie's ancestors followed a diversity of occupations ranging from medical, manufacturing, a minister and a naval ship's engineer. The one thing all of them had in common was a liking for technology, and especially for weather barometers. As a result, Gaberlunzie has grown up with an acute fondness for an aneroid barometer, a ship's chronometer and an Admiral Fitzroy, though with the exception of the chronometer, he's uncertain who owned what!!
