FCC grants use of unlicensed airwaves:
By Cecilia KangWashington Post Staff Writer
"FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski touted the decision as part of his effort to significantly extend broadband connections in the United States. The order was introduced and passed under former chairman Kevin J. Martin two years ago but got hung up with a lawsuit brought by broadcasters, church ministers and Nashville's Dolly Parton, who argued that those airwaves could interfere with wireless microphones and nearby television channels."

Bill McKibben's Solar Road Trip | Mother Jones: "It was all a little odd, to say the least. They refused to accept the Carter panel as a historic relic, or even to pose for a picture with the students and the petition they'd brought with them. Asked to do something easy and symbolic to rekindle a little of the joy that had turned out so many of us as volunteers for Obama in 2008, they point blank said no. In a less than overwhelming gesture, they did, however, pass out Xeroxed copies of a 2009 memorandum from Vice President Biden about federal energy policy."

"The mini-reactors could power military bases and large industrial plants or serve as large-scale backup power generators. The reactors would be buried 33 feet in the ground and provide enough energy for the equivalent of 20,000 homes, said Deborah Blackwell, Hyperion’s policy director. They could be removed after cooling off after several months and moved to another site, she said."
