The West Valley nuclear facility (WVNF), in W. NY State, was built to convert spent nuclear fuel (NF) from comm'l. reactors into reusable nuclear fuel. However, the market for reprocessed NF was limited; new, more restrictive health and safety standards raised concerns about the facility; and there was concern about reprocessed NF being used to make nuclear weapons. The WVNF was permanently shutdown in the 1970s, and cleanup began in the 1980s. This report examines: the status of the cleanup; factors that may be hindering the cleanup; the degree of certainty in the DoE's est. of total cleanup

Children the world over are taught to say prayers at bedtime-but how many adults take time to turn to God at the end of the day? This collection of prayers is one of the few daily devotionals especially intended for use in the evening. In Lift Thine Eyes, the faith of a man who recognized human despair but refused to give into it offers a wellspring of hope we can turn to again and again. Blumhardt’s prayers (and the corresponding Bible passages he has chosen for them) bespeak a certainty in God’s nearness; the peace that flows from them comes from an unshakable convicti

Climate change has emerged as an important public policy issue, although the prospects for an internat. agree. on climate policy are unclear. Many people have proposed plans to encourage or require cuts in the U.S. emissions of carbon dioxide, which affect the Earthżs climate. This study examines 4 proposals for reducing those emissions. Each proposal is a variant of a żcap-and-tradeż program, in which policymakers would set a mandatory cap on emissions of carbon dioxide and provide cożs. with econ. incentives to reach that cap at the lowest possible cost. This study evaluates the 4 propos

Richard Carr's brilliant fifth book, One Sleeve, collects all the resonating themes of his earlier work, turbocharges them, and demands that the reader, stripped of all pretense, illusion, and self-pity, face the human condition of our time. From these dark poems shine great beauty and a strange, tentative-yet-tough kindness, while simile and lyricism transform each poem into a mythology that is both frightening and comforting. Nancy White, author of Sun, Moon, Salt and Detour Carr's narrator picks scabs off his philosophical wounds while his alter ego, "One Sleeve," attempts to make sense of
