On West Virginia Chemical Spill Another Black Eye For 'Clean Coal'

Michael, thanks for putting the steel industry on our radar. While we tend to bracket coal into electricity generating sector, the fallacy of "clean coal" also applies to industrial uses. Here's a helpful rundown of emissions from the iron and steel industries from US EPA: http://www.epa.gov/nsr/ghgdocs/ironsteel.pdf.

On What's All This About The World Bank Not Financing Any More Nukes?

Bob, please check your sources. Item 4, for example, is out of date. The Arava region is on track to shift to a network of kibbutz-hosted solar power plants (not just one kibbutz) with energy storage, which will help rid Eilat of dependence on those diesel generators you mentioned (you misspelled Eilat btw) day and night. The network is being developed with an eye toward exporting this solution elsewhere.
