Monday's Child is full of links

(but lazy, so M'sC doesn't publish until Tuesday)

1. China's workforce stretched thin.

2. Cobra on the loose, may take "weeks" to find it.

3. From Anonyman: The chart indicates that nuclear is a small % of energy consumption, but nuclear is only used to generate electricity. So they should have a chart showing electricity production (or consumption) where nukes would be 20-25%. The trick here is that petroleum, which the chart indicates is 37% of energy consumption all goes in our cars. So getting rid of nuclear electricity production would only make our electricity "dirtier" as we would use more coal. He's talking about this article, which is dumb even for the NYTimes.
