theoretically, nuclear plants are able to use low-quality steam from waste heat to power their low pressure turbines, thus providing local power needs. I've never heard of it actually being done, though. However, Fukushima Daiichi's trouble was not lack of power so much as the flooded power rooms, w...

Well, I actually bothered to do the math after almost four years, and according to my calculations, 1e12 neutrons per second is about one part in 40 million of the neutron yield from a 100 MW D-T reactor. So it's a bit less than eight orders down - by number . By energy, it's billions of times smal...

Once again: The unemployment rate peaked at almost 10% by the end of 2009, before the stimulus had any time to take effect! That is much higher than the original predictions were! Since then the unemployment rate has continuously gone down. That is a fact. Of course you can always twist and bend ev...

The last quarter of 2008 saw an annualized drop in growth approaching 9 percent. This was the most serious downturn since the 1930s, there wa...
