Nuclear build programme will bring immense benefits

24th March 2017 South Africa builds and exports Mercedes-Benz vehicles from East London.  BMW cars are built in Pretoria, as are Ford cars. Other vehicle brands are also built are this country.  I have toured the BMW and Ford plant several times, and I can assure you that what you see is South African workers... 

Statistical ‘sleight of hand’ abounds

17th March 2017 The statistician-general of South Africa is Dr Pali Lehohla.  We have known each other for years and have engaged in many interesting discussions. Recently, when commenting on statistics in the modern world, he made the point that, with modern technology, data is now available in unprecedented... 

The myth about wind and solar energy

10th March 2017 For a long time now, I have wondered why many journalists and others believe the claim that solar and wind, as energy sources, employ more people than nuclear or other sources and that, therefore, they are good.  Firstly, this is just not true, but far more important is the fact that such a trend... 

SA’s nuclear build initiative now rolling

3rd March 2017 The South African nuclear power procurement programme is now rolling. The long-awaited formal start, as far as the international community is concerned, occurred on December 14, when a request for information (RfI) was issued.  What this document did was that it asked any company worldwide to... 

Electric vehicles unlikely to scale battery hurdle

24th February 2017 Much scientific work has gone into the development of electric vehicles over recent years. Huge strides have been made, but I cannot see a way past the battery problem in the case of day-to-day electric cars. This is always glossed over by the proponents of electric cars.  Making the electric... 

High-powered speakers lined up for Nuclear Africa

17th February 2017 South Africa’s nuclear programme has attracted a great deal of public interest. This has ranged from serious scientific and engineering interest to the emotional attacks of the extreme antinuclear lobby. The antinuclear crowd does not comprise South Africa only; there are Germans, Americans and... 

Leave the science of climate change to scientists

10th February 2017 I saw on television that Prince Charles has just brought out a booklet on climate change, designed to teach people about the issue. The book is written by him and two academics, supposedly. No doubt, that means that the other two wrote it and he put his name on the top of the author list. 

Thumbs up for Eskom’s plan to cut off errant municipalities

3rd February 2017 The price of electricity is a most fundamental factor in the development of an economy. Electricity can be compared to the blood flowing around a person’s body. If you run low on blood supply, you can pass out. A substantial cut in a blood vessel can lead to significant bleeding, and, if it is... 

Hollywood, TV promoting ‘crazy’ science

27th January 2017 Something that irritates me is when there is crazy, impossible science in Hollywood movies. It happens a lot.  It happens on TV all the time.  What I am talking about is things like when some fellow in a modern war movie picks up an infrared viewer and then looks clean through a concrete wall and... 

New coins to mark Krugerrands’ golden jubilee

20th January 2017 This year,  a new pure-silver Krugerrand will be issued to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the first gold Krugerrands being issued in 1967. From 1967 to 1970, the Krugerrands were produced mainly for collectors, but they became so popular that, in 1970, the South African Mint started...
