During the Carter Administration, funding increased to pay for the greater focus on conseiwing energy, greater oil production including increasing the production of oil, natural gas and synthetic fuel from coal and shale oil reseiwes, and speeding the development and implementation of solar power. The Carter Administration took a very activist approach to energy policy, and believed that the United States could be getting 20 percent of its energy from the sun or other renewable energy sources by the year 2000. Toward this end, the Carter Administration pushed through Congress very generous subsidies for residential and commercial solar and wind installations.  [c.586]

However, when either P(CgH )(CH2)2 or P(CgH )2(CH2) is used to form cis- or /n j -M(N2)2(PR3)4j M = Mo or W, respectively, followed by treatment with acid, ammonia yields of about 2 mol or 0.7 mol pet mole of complex for M = W and Mo, respectively, are produced (193,194). These and related data have been used to suggest a possible stepwise sequence for the reduction and protonation of N2 on a single molybdenum atom ia nitrogeaase (194). However, acidificatioa leads to complete destmctioa of the complex. Using both the stabilizing effect of the chelating phosphine triphos,  [c.91]

The core function of QRA is to provide information for decision making. QRA results in and of themselves cannot prove anything. However, decision makers can compare QRA risk estimates to their own risk tolerance criteria to decide whether a plant or operation is safe enough. The same QRA results can support both the plant manager s contention that the plant is safe, as well as the community activist s claim that the plant is unsafe. The difference lies in the individual s risk tolerance, not the QRA.  [c.7]

Rachel Carson played a crucial role in the ways Americans inteipreted these events. Though a quiet person, more a recluse than an activist, her naturalist concerns won out. Propelled away from her refuge by her beloved sea to write a book on pesticides, Carson s activism grew and she spent her last days in the halls of Congress lobbying for environmental legislation. Her fight was short-lived, however. Carson died of breast cancer in 1964, two years after the publication of Silent Spring.  [c.223]

This changed dramatically in the 1960s and 1970s as antinuclear opinion switched from weapons to nuclear power and spread from activist groups into a large segment of the middle class. Antinuclear activism was strongest in the two nations with large nuclear power programs and the most open political systems—the United States and West Germany— although there were notable institutional and social differences betw eeti the two nations. And while antinuclear activism surely slowed the progress of nuclear power development in many countries, it was one of a cluster of economic, technological, political, and social forces constraining the industiy.  [c.855]
