Ending the other n word
The Nuclear Arms’ Non-proliferation Treaty has produced one useful side-effect: a programme called Megatons to Megawatts, where uranium from weapons from the former USSR is turned into electricity. Russia should get $8 billion from the sale of the uranium fuel, and some 10 per cent of the United States’ electricity is from Megatons to Megawatts. There’s more at this entry from May 2005, which I found via Benjamin Kalt’s Free World blog. It’s one way to reduce the love of oil that the US leads.
Hopefully these nuclear weapons will be reduced to a point where we won’t need to hear the n word or, more accurately, the President’s intentional mispronunciation of it. Posted by Jack Yan, 06:30

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
