  • Chamber chief says U.S. nuclear energy development should proceed
    The U.S. needs to continue developing nuclear energy and researching alternative and renewable energy sources, said Thomas Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. "By fully embracing America's energy opportunity, we can accelerate growth, create millions of new jobs, free ourselves from some less-than-stable global suppliers and create huge new revenues for government, which will help reduce budget deficits," Donohue said.

  • World needs nuclear power to fight climate change
    Nuclear power plays a key role as the world combats the effects of climate change, writes Leslie Kemeny, the Australian foundation member of the International Nuclear Energy Academy. According to several energy experts and leaders, nuclear is safe, clean and the only reliable and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. This year, it is just as irrational to be a "nuclear denier" as a "climate skeptic," Kemeny writes. The Canberra Times (Australia) (free registration) (1/11) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Leaders should thank their lucky stars, says Richard Branson
    Business leaders shouldn't forget that their success stems as much from dumb luck as it does from skill or hard work, says Virgin Group founder Richard Branson. Nobody succeeds without putting in overtime, but long hours alone can't guarantee success. "Lots of people do that and do not succeed. And so those of us who have succeeded need to thank our lucky stars for the breakthroughs that got us to the top," Branson says. LinkedIn Blog (1/7) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
