There has been a lot of noise (and tweeting) from the Breakthrough people about how great it is that US CO2 emissions are being reduced by switching from coal to shale gas. Is the argument made in the Tom Wigley paper discussed last year now considered invalid? US coal plants will be much cleaner than a global average that includes a lot of unabated Chinese and Indian plants, so the loss of aerosol cooling will be small, but there's still the methane leakage. Can we now be confident that this is low enough that a switch to gas is a real help?
Great results from the IQ2 debate about nuclear: The audience went from 35% in favor to 51%, whereas those against stayed about the same, 31% to 32%. John Morgan has an excellent account of the debate. Congratulations to Ben Heard and his team.
