    There's enough fissioning spent fuel sitting in "temporary" cooling tanks to destroy earth hundreds of times over if/when the power goes out for a few days due to terrorist act or solar storm or whatever. Seems like the most likely world-ender for this century, unless we put it away.

    Yes. And it's a problem with a solution that has been kicked down the road over and over again. This is just another thing where the Federal Government has failed it's people. This one is on Democrats as much as Republicans.

    Matt Carpenter (St Louis Cardinals) is donating $30,000 for every home run he hits. Wainwright and the rest of the team will match.

    There's also models showing ANOTHER system forming in the GoM and possibly making another impact in TX/LA next week.

    After a decade of relative quiet during the peak of hurricane season, this summer is getting busy.

    The Bible never mentioned calculus either. That would have saved me my only collegiate D in Advanced Calc.

    2 explosions at the chemical plant in Crosby. 1 deputy transported to hospital, 9 others drove themselves as a precaution. Several complaining of headaches/dizzyness.

    What about differentiation? They should be for that.

    Though its breakneck development culture and lax regulatory environment have been lauded for giving working people affordable housing — and thus a shot at the American dream — many experts and residents say that the developers’ encroachment into the wetlands and prairies that used to serve Houston as natural sponges has inevitably exacerbated the misery that the city is suffering today. “There could have been ways to have more green space and more green infrastructure over the years, and it just didn’t work that way, because it was fast and furious,” said Phil Bedient, a civil and environmental engineering professor at Rice University. Many developments were not built with enough open land or enough detention areas to take in floodwaters, Dr. Bedient said. “It’s been known for years how to do it,” he said, “it just costs the developers more money to do it that way.”

    That's ok. We'll socialize the losses for you. Even though all but one of your Federal Representatives and Senator's voted against that very thing for New York and New Jersey after Sandy.

    I hope people remember this the next time a politician thunders about "suffocating red tape" or "job-killing regulations."
