    QUICK NEWS, October 5: OVER HALF OF CONSERVATIVES SAY CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL; BUSINESS CALLS ON CONGRESS TO SUPPORT NEW ENERGY; NUKE PLANTS TARGETS FOR CYBER-ATTACK

    OVER HALF OF CONSERVATIVES SAY CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL Many Conservative Republicans Believe Climate Change Is a Real Threat

    Coral Davenport, September 28, 2015 (NY Times)

    “A majority of Republicans — including 54 percent of self-described conservative Republicans — believe the world’s climate is changing and that mankind plays some role in the change, according to…[What Policies Do Voters - Particularly Republican Voters - Support To Accelerate Development And Use Of Clean Energy?]conducted by three prominent Republican pollsters…The results echo a number of other recent surveys concluding that despite the talk of many of the party’s candidates, a significant number of Republicans and independent voters are inclined to support candidates who would back some form of climate action. It may also point to a problem facing Republicans seeking their party’s presidential nomination: The activists who crowd town hall meetings and Republican presidential caucuses and primaries might not reflect the broader attitude of even the Republican electorate…” click here for more

These sectors are quickly embedding themselves into the mainstream fabric of the U.S. energy economy and tax policy has played a role in this transformation. The clean energy tax provisions have a proven track record of helping scale up production and drive down the cost of clean energy technologies, thereby ensuring that market-ready technologies are deployed to their full potential…” click here for more

    5 October 2015 (BBC News)

    “The risk of a "serious cyber attack" on nuclear power plants around the world is growing, warns Cyber Security at Civil Nuclear Facilities; Understanding the Risks from Chatham House]…The civil nuclear infrastructure in most nations is not well prepared to defend against such attacks…[because it is ‘insecure by design’ because of its age…Such an attack on a nuclear plant, even if small-scale or unlikely, [needs] to be taken seriously because of the harm that would follow if radiation were released…Unfortunately, research carried out for the study showed that the UK's nuclear plants and associated infrastructure were not well protected or prepared because the industry had converted to digital systems relatively recently…This increasing digitisation and growing reliance on commercial software is only increasing the risks the nuclear industry faces…[The researchers] also found evidence of virtual networks and other links to the public internet on nuclear infrastructure networks. Some of these were forgotten or simply unknown to those in charge of these organisations…” click here for more
