Met de strijd tegen een centrale in Diemen, staat de kritiek op biomassa weer vol in de schijnwerpers. Helemaal niet duurzaam, een regelrechte ramp, zeggen sommigen. Volgens anderen is biomassa niet alleen duurzaam maar ook absoluut nodig. Aan meningen geen gebrek, maar hoe zit het echt? Dat vraag ik aan prof. dr. Martin Junginger, hoogleraar Bio-based Economy, Energy & Resources aan het Copernicus Instituut voor Duurzame Ontwikkeling van de Universiteit Utrecht.

Steve and Corey speak with Ted Chiang about his recent story collection "Exhalation" and his inaugural essay for the New York Times series, Op-Eds from the Future. Chiang has won Nebula and Hugo awards for his widely influential science fiction writing. His short story "Story of Your Life," was the basis of the film Arrival (2016). Their discussion explores the scientific and philosophical ideas in Ted’s work, including whether free will is possible, and implications of AI, neuroscience, and time travel. Ted explains why his skepticism about whether the US is truly a meritocracy leads him to believe that the government-funded genetic modification he envisages in his Op-Ed would not solve the problem of inequality.

Broiler chicken farmers make way more money that anyone admits:
Farmers in general make more money than non-farming Americans & have since the mid-90s: https://www.ers.usda.gov/topics/farm-economy/farm-household-well-being/income-and-wealth-in-context/ (Translate: yes, working-class farmers exist, and they’re still a lot better off than their non-farming working class peers. Meanwhile white-collar farmers, who also exist, are doing quite well.)
The USDA does a farm census every 10 years or so; the 1920 one gets referenced the most often bc it was the high-water mark for number of farmers in the US. (Which folks take to mean it’s “normal” except it wasn’t- farmer numbers were artificially inflated by super high food prices during World War I driving a lot of speculative investment & one last gasp of homesteading in places where there’s no way it…

Nu de discussie over een extra CO2-heffing voor de industrie de verhoudingen in de politiek steeds meer op scherp zet, is het hoog tijd om feiten van fictie te scheiden: is zo’n heffing wel of geen goed idee en zo ja, hoe zou die er dan uit moeten zien? Oftewel hoe kan Nederland op een slimme, maar vooral betaalbare manier de reductiedoelen halen? Ik bespreek het met CO2- en ETS-specialist Jos Cozijnsen van de Climate Neutral Group.
