Robber fly - Nature photographer Thomas Shahan specializes in amazing portraits of tiny insects. It isn't easy. Shahan says that this Robber Fly (Holcocephala fusca), for instance, is "skittish" and doesn't like its picture taken.

“… 4 - Energy (again)

The natural resources of the planet are finite and will not support the continuation of what you've been doing. We've been saying this for a decade. Watch for increased science and increased funding for alternate ways of creating electricity (finally). Watch for the very companies who have the most to lose being the ones who fund it. It is the beginning of a full realization that a change of thinking is at hand. You can take things from Gaia that are energy, instead of physical resources. We speak yet again about geothermal, about tidal, about wind. Again, we plead with you not to over-engineer this. For one of the things that Human Beings do in a technological age is to over-engineer simple things. Look at nuclear - the most over-engineered and expensive steam engine in existence!

Your current ideas of capturing energy from tidal and wave motion don't have to be technical marvels. Think paddle wheel on a pier with waves, which will create energy in both directions [waves coming and going] tied to a generator that can power dozens of neighborhoods, not full cities. Think simple and decentralize the idea of utilities. The same goes for wind and geothermal. Think of utilities for groups of homes in a cluster. You won't have a grid failure if there is no grid. This is the way of the future, and you'll be more inclined to have it sooner than later if you do this, and it won't cost as much….”

KMT to halt fourth nuclear plant construction

The Ma Ying-jeou administration and the ruling Kuomintang (KMT) agreed Sunday to halt construction of the country's controversial fourth nuclear power plant with immediate effect.

Construction of the plant's nearly completed No. 1 and No. 2 reactors will be halted. The No. 1 reactor, which is currently undergoing safety inspections, will not be brought online once the inspections are complete, announced Fan Chiang Tai-chi, head of the KMT's Culture and Communication Committee.

The Executive Yuan, the country's cabinet, has also promised to convene a national energy conference as soon as possible "to ensure there will be no cause for worry over future power supplies," he said.

The two-point consensus was reached during a two-hour meeting among president Ma Ying-jeou, who doubles as KMT chairman, premier Jiang Yi-huah and KMT mayors and magistrates, including Taipei mayor Hau Lung-bin, New Taipei mayor Eric Chu and Taichung mayor Jason Hu.

Shortly after the meeting, the premier visited a church in Taipei where former Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) chairman Lin Yi-hsiung was staging a hunger strike to protest the plant. Jiang asked the pastor of the church to deliver the two-point consensus to Lin, who has been declining to receive visitors during his fast.

Whether the plant will be put into operation in the future will be decided by a national referendum, Fan Chiang said, adding that the timetable for the referendum should be decided by the public.

As for whether the KMT will agree to relax the threshold for the referendum, Fan Chiang said the issue is "not a part of the conclusion" of the meeting, although the participants gave their own opinions on it.

In the meeting, New Taipei's Chu told Ma he does not have confidence in the current fourth nuclear plant, said Lin Chieh-yu, head of New Taipei city's Information Department.

Even so, Lin said, the New Taipei mayor does not support a DPP-proposed special referendum statute solely for the plant and believes that discussions should return to the revision of the Referendum Act.

Chu told Ma that Taiwan's Referendum Act is stricter than international standards and has room for adjustment, Lin said.

The DPP proposed the special statute April 21 to bypass the current Referendum Act, which was put into force in 2006. The act requires the participation of more than half of Taiwan's eligible voters for a referendum to be valid. Because of this threshold, six referendums that have been held so far on various issues have all failed to pass the barricade.

Other KMT mayors and magistrates, including Taichung's Hu, declined to offer their individual opinions on the issue after Sunday's meeting.

DPP chairman Su Tseng-chang said earlier that day that his party is changing its proposal for the special referendum statute to make the validity threshold "a yes vote by at least 25% of the total number of (adult) citizens in Taiwan."

This means that the proposed referendum to scrap the project would pass as long as 25% of all Taiwanese citizens of voting age, or nearly 5 million people, cast a yes vote.

Many saw the Sunday meeting as a change in attitude of Ma on the fourth nuclear plant, although some in the KMT believe that the results of the meeting were consistent with the party's previous stance.
