Tom, Molly and Veronica:
Interesting comments about light bulbs on the Feb 1 BuzzCast. It is kind of amusing to watch California's "pioneering" efforts to reduce greenhouse gases, especially since that nanny state has a near total ban on nuclear power plants, which are the most successful electricity generators that do not produce any emissions at all!
As a former nuclear submarine officer and current atomic entrepreneur, I would love to engage other geeks in atomic technology conversations. Sure, the basic technology was invented a few decades ago, but so were transistors and look how far those have come once we figured out how to put millions of them on a single chip.
Imagine - who would need to worry about what kind of light bulb you were using if the electricity grid was 100% atomic and zero emission? How cool would it be to plug in your hybrid to such a grid, knowing that the fuel you were burning came from Canada, Australia or the US instead of Nigeria, Venezuela or Russia.
