65 Things White People Can Do for Racial Justice — by Corinne Shutack
Op-Ed by Jim Warren. The asteroid cluster has been hurtling toward Earth for decades, monitored warily by scientists. Early debris is already harming millions of people and the impacts are accelerating. Engineers know how to steer the cluster away from direct impact. But the most government is barely willing to discuss the challenge…
Op-Ed by Jim Warren. Is it sci-fi? A really bad dream? Or a metaphor for global warming? Climate change has been in the news lately, partly due to Donald Trump’s attacks on science. Still, there’s little mention of the extreme urgency or the key drivers of the crisis.
Op-ed by Jim Warren. The revival of U.S. nuclear power has been dominated in recent years by exuberance fueled by industry hype. Several weeks before Japan’s tragedy, former Nuclear Regulatory Commission member Peter Bradford declared the U.S. nuclear renaissance “in shambles.”
Op-Ed by Lynice Williams and Jim Warren. Recent news of a merger between Duke Energy and Progress Energy sets the stage for North Carolina to become home to the nation’s largest electric utility. They say the merger will save customers money by eliminating redundancy, but what appears to be a key driver behind the merger – building two nuclear reactors in South Carolina – would cost customers much more.
Op-Ed by John Blackburn and Jim Warren. Electricity rates for most North Carolina customers will increase dramatically if new coal-fired and
nuclear power plants are successfully completed by Duke Energy and Progress Energy.
Op-Ed by Jim Warren. Severe climate changes are occurring at an accelerating rate. Our planet is in crisis, according to the
world’s top scientists, and corrective measures that are proven, feasible and economically beneficial
— mainly energy efficiency — need to be implemented now.
Op-Ed by Jim Warren. Climate change is causing extensive damage at an accelerating rate. Oxfam International reports that weather disasters have quadrupled in 20 years with a quarter billion people impacted annually.
Op-Ed by Jim Warren. Despite a propaganda offensive depicting nuclear power as carbon free and safer than ever, resuscitating the failed technology would be a huge, unnecessary gamble for our climate, economy and safety.
Op-Ed by Jim Warren. What’s the most compelling reason Progress Energy should stop planning new reactors at its Shearon Harris nuclear plant? Global climate change.
