Parsing Bill Nye’s Anti-Nuclear Energy Keynote Speech

My previous article was about Bill Nye's choice to ignore the science when it comes to nuclear energy safety. I'm not picking on Bill. My critiques are in response to Nye's decision to use his celebrity status to publicly air his anti-nuclear energy beliefs. Show More Summary

Here at NEI, we try to keep an eye out for any television program or film that involves nuclear energy. As we've written in the past, the results can be something of a mixed bag. That's part of the reason that Pandora's Promise was such a pleasant surprise. Show More Summary

Trump Vows to Strong-Arm Apple’s Manufacturing back to America

There’s no question that real estate mogul Donald Trump has brought plenty of bluster and truculence to the Republican presidential race, and, in fact, like candidates before him who have successfully managed to harness technology to ultimately win the race, I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump’s controversial one-liners generated enough social media click-bait to propel […]

The pig and the python: How American refineries are dealing with the oil glut

Record US crude oil inventory levels in 2015 reminds us of a pig crossing paths with a python. The pig is consumed by the snake, bulging in the reptile’s stomach as it goes through the digestive process, and is a handy parable for oil markets.

The FCC is trying to make good on its promise to let auction participants know what’s in store for them on the auction application front (and the reimbursement front, too – but that’s for a later post).
