The Saturn mission’s grand finale

13th October 2017 September 15, 2017, will go down in history as the date of a spectacular death that brought mixed emotions to many people.  It was a death by fire, far away from home, of the Cassini spaceship. The Cassini space mission has turned out to be one of the most successful and spectacular space... 

Public education needed to counter antinuclear drive

6th October 2017 I recently spent a week in London, attending the World Nuclear Association (WNA) yearly symposium. I stayed on the bank of the Thames, about a kilometre from the conference venue and less than a kilometre from the Houses of Parliament.  So, each day, I walked to the conference venue. I was lucky... 

Electricity supply as a service and as a commodity not the same

29th September 2017 This topic keeps coming up, so I am going to address it yet again.  It is important, very important. When referring to an electricity supply, there is the concept of despatchable power and nondespatchable power. This means that the light comes on when you flick the switch at any time – 24/7. Or... 

Abrupt end to North Pole expedition on a yacht

22nd September 2017 I told the story of British explorer Pen Hadrow (Engineering News, September 1, 2017) setting out in two sailing ships in an attempt to sail all the way to the North Pole on open water to prove how horrible mankind has produced horrible climate change, which is melting the Arctic ice. I said I... 

It’s time to counter antinuclear propaganda

15th September 2017 Of all sources of electricity, nuclear is the safest, cleanest and cheapest. These are all easily provable assertions, yet, in the open forum of public debate about nuclear power, issues such as provable claims count for little. An unfortunate development in international public debate has been... 

Climate change is an ‘extreme green’ hoax

8th September 2017 I read yet another of those ‘we are all headed for doom’ newspaper articles about climate change in a national business newspaper. To make matters worse, it was written by a fellow who is the director of the environmental law division at a law firm. The article was peppered with the word ‘may',... 

North Pole mission nothing more than a publicity study

1st September 2017 A fellow by the name of Pen Hadrow set sail in mid-August on an Artic mission.  He left from Alaska on an attempt to be the first person to sail to the North Pole. His team consists of ten men and one dog, sailing in two 50-ft sailing boats.  But the boats do have engines. They left from Nome, in... 

Living entirely on renewables is in the realm of fantasy

25th August 2017 I had a discussion with someone on why there is no town in the world that runs entirely on solar and wind power. He insisted that there were such towns. I still disagree and then went to do a search. This is some of what I found. In Germany, there is a town called Feldheim that claims to run... 

There is nothing anticompetitive about companies collaborating

11th August 2017 The Competition Commission is worrying me. In fact, it has been worrying me for quite a long time. I now read that it has fined the Natal Witness newspaper because it failed to notify the commission of a merger between it and Mandla-Matla for the provision of printing services. The fine is... 

Now is the time to build a new oil refinery

4th August 2017 The more I look at large projects all over the world, the more I am convinced that they all relied on inspired leadership and a significant element of inspired risk taking. It is well known that, if you put your money into an investment, the financial return is least for the lowest risk. The...
