Peninsula Energy obtains key regulatory approval for low-pH uranium extraction
Peninsula Energy Ltd (ASX:PEN) chief executive officer Wayne Heili speaks to Proactive Investors about the uranium company receiving the first of two key regulatory approvals for low-pH uranium extraction. The company is the only ASX-listed US producer of uranium, based in Wyoming, and has started a new pilot phase at its Lance Projects to assist productivity and reduce costs. The transition from an alkaline-based chemistry to a low-pH-based chemistry for the lixiviant, or medium, Peninsula uses to leach uranium from ore is expected to help it reach the lower end of the cost curve and improve the attractiveness of its project.
Nuclear Science for SDGs: Life On Land
Science and technology are crucial for development. Nuclear science plays a significant role in the achievement of many of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially in the fields of health, hunger, energy and the environment. Good soil is essential for successful food production. With the support of nuclear techniques, farmers are improving soil quality - leading to healthier and more abundant crops. The 2016 IAEA Scientific Forum highlights the contribution of nuclear technology to the SDGs.

3. Nuclear Experiments
Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) To illustrate the linkages among national security, secrecy, and environmental quality, Professor Wargo describes the Atomic Energy Commission's nuclear tests in the 1950s. The Atomic Energy Commission collected data on the spread of radionuclides from the nuclear tests, and discovered that the radionuclides were circulating around the world. This process of discovery raised issues regarding ways to manage risks to the population while both continuing the nuclear tests and keeping them secret for national security reasons. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Water Resources
005 - Water Resources In this video Paul Andersen explains how water is unequally distributed around the globe through the hydrologic cycles. Seawater is everywhere but is not useful without costly desalination. Freshwater is divided between surface water and groundwater but must me stored and moved for domestic, industrial, and agricultural uses. Subsidized low cost water has created a problem with water conservation but economic changes could help solve the problem. Do you speak another language?

The Role of Coal in a New Energy Age
The Role of Coal in a New Energy Age - Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming - 2010-04-14 - For the first time in recent memory, the CEOs of America's top two coal mining companies, and a leading international company, came to Capitol Hill to answer questions on their positions on climate change, clean energy policy, and the challenges that face their industry. "Just as our national energy policy is at a crossroads, so, too, is the coal industry," said Rep. Edward J. Markey, who chairs the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, the committee that hosted the CEOs. "Whether it's climate science, the viability of 'clean coal,' or safety concerns, I believe Congress requires answers from the coal industry on their ability to be a part of our clean energy future." As Congress continues to push for a comprehensive clean energy and climate bill, questions remain regarding the coal industry's position on the essential science of climate change and their potential to provide cleaner, lower-carbon fuel in the decades to come. The House-passed Waxman-Markey bill offered a pathway for coal to transition to carbon capture and sequestration technologies. The coal mining industry has seen significant developments over the last two weeks. A mining accident in West Virginia has renewed questions about the safety of coal extraction, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has offered new rules on the environmental and health impacts of mountaintop mining. TESTIMONY: Gregory Boyce, President and Chief Executive Officer, Peabody Energy Corporation; Steven F. Leer, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Arch Coal, Inc.; Preston Chiaro, Chief Executive for Energy and Minerals, Rio Tinto; Michael Carey, President, Ohio Coal Association.

The goal will be to seek input from a trans-disciplinary group of scientists to identify 1) knowledge gaps, 2) technical hurdles, 3) new approaches and 4) research opportunities that will inform the development of novel prevention and treatment strategies based on host/microbiome interactions over the next ten years.

The conference focuses on three key areas. First, the economics of rising sea levels for real coastal estate markets, which comprise a large portion of US housing market growth and hence personal wealth. The economics of ‘stranded carbon assets.’ That is, the raw materials and financial assets tied up in carbon release that have a high current value but whose values could decline precipitously in the future, especially if ambitious action is undertaken as scientific consensus suggests is needed. The third is the organized politics of climate denial: who are the agents and institutions behind scientific disinformation and how can such a politics best be countered? A lunchtime keynote speech will be given by Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. Lunch will be provided for participants.

But John Doggett, a senior lecturer in the Management Department at McCombs, says that if the U.S. decides to take the revival of its competitiveness seriously, there is still hope. "We live in an amazing country. We have overcome challenges that would have destroyed other countries," said Doggett, in a recent talk for the Texas Enterprise Speaker Series. "We face serious problems, and serious problems equal great opportunities." In order to catch back up, he said, we must first realize how far we have fallen.

Navigating Arctic Resources: Preservation versus Exploitation Justin Strauss, Assistant Professor of Earth Sciences, Dartmouth College The circum-Arctic region remains one of the last unexploited wilderness areas on our planet. Despite tantalizing estimates of vast economic resources, scientists still lack consensus on some of the most fundamental aspects of the Arctic's geological evolution. As a result, this region has become an exploration frontier that will not only become more accessible with climate change, but also more economically viable as resources dwindle in other parts of the world. How do we intend to balance the continuous pressure for global economic growth versus the preservation of this unique wilderness? How will the Arctic’s rapidly changing climate affect this decision? This talk will attempt to set the framework for past and future exploration of the Arctic in order to motivate arguably one of the most important resource-based issues of our generation.

States And Cities In Pursuit Of Clean Power: Opportunities And Obstacles To Reaching Their Goal
To meet these clean energy goals, New York, California and other states and municipalities with similar goals must contend with a host of challenges: How will President Trump’s proposed federal policy changes impact them? How will they integrate distributed sources into the grid? What incentives and payment structures should be used? EPIC Senior Fellow Pete Ogden talks to the person spearheading this effort for the state of New York, Richard Kauffman, and a premier expert in energy policy and economics, former Department of Energy Assistant Secretary Susan Tierney.

David Wilcock: Cabal Defeat is Looming (Russian Mainstream TV Show!)
21 million people in Russia and neighboring countries watched REN-TV reveal the imminent defeat of the New World Order in this stunning expose' with David Wilcock. This three-hour 8PM documentary revealed how 26 underground bases were mysteriously destroyed between August 22, 2011 and January 2012 -- and explores who may have done it. The Russians explore uncomfortable truths with remarkable new detail and clarity, including the transfer of Nazi scientists to America after World War II under Project Paperclip. Never before has a major television series so thoroughly revealed the international alliance that has formed to encircle and defeat the Cabal. Neil Keenan's epic multi-billion-dollar lawsuit against the United Nations and other Cabal entities is discussed, as well as Ben Fulford's own efforts to organize resistance efforts. Learn how the Federal Reserve deliberately created World War I and II to seize the world's gold -- and create a limitless supply of "bubble money" that could be printed out of thin air. The documentary ultimately stops short of naming BRICS -- Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa -- as the public face of this new alliance against the Federal Reserve. This alliance apparently now encompasses a majority of all countries in the world. The staff of REN-TV told us this show was wildly popular, reaching a stunning 21 million viewers. It is fast-paced and has an intense, dramatic musical score with lots of visuals. You may want to laugh or think this is all "crazy" -- but it was taken seriously enough to be developed into a major, prime-time special on a top Russian network. As David often has said, "if you throw up, you'll feel better" is a good analogy for what we all must learn in order to heal our planet. Without awareness there can be no resolution.

The Human Age: Our Anthropocene Conundrum, presented by guest lecturer Dennis Dimick
Dennis Dimick, former picture and environment editor for National Geographic, delivers a narrated visual journey through the Anthropocene—the past three centuries of human activity culminating in our fossil-fueled modern world. Presented by the SOJC’s Media Center for Science and Technology, Dimick's talk makes a case that, while humans have created great prosperity on Earth, it's at a cost we must now reckon with. As we approach a turning point, Dimick says, communicators can help convince policy makers and the public that we must make an energy transition before it’s too late. This lecture was made possible by funds from the Robert and Mabel Ruhl and Richard W. and Laurie Johnston lecture series. Dimick is co-founder of Eyes On Earth, a project to inspire a new generation of environmental photographers. A son of fisheries biologists, Dimick grew up on a sheep and hay farm in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
