Living In a Toxic World

The first is about a company that is converting CO2 into liquid fuel. The second is about the recent desire for a cap-and-trade program on CO2 emissions and how there might be unintended consequences if the price drops and it becomes cheaper to pollute. Cap-and-trade, while a good idea, will only facilitate the continued pollution because we have no alternatives. I'm just nervous that it will not help us actually reduce our emissions and change our consumption culture.

The best estimate of this is about $7/ton of CO2 or $0.06/gallon of gasoline (€0.015/liter). While CFLs are more expensive to buy, they are much cheaper over their lifespan, because they use much less energy (even more so with the cost of CO2 factored into taxes on electricity).

How can nuclear power be seen as 'clean' energy?

Green (Living) Review

Aside from the very issue of Hinkley Point in the UK nuclear power, in general, is a polluting energy source and while there may be no CO2 emissions during the running of such a station, no one seems to calculate those in the building, and even worse, no one is considering the spent fuel issue the storage of which is a problem, especially in the long run. Why are we even considering this when there are far cleaner, safer and cheaper renewable alternatives available?
