    A global energy perspective for the middle of the next century is presented. The premises for the projections are described. Included are assumptions as to how much conservation the world might achieve. Projections are then made for the year 2060, assuming that the global fossil fuel mix of coal, oil, and gas will not have changed substantially and that the renewable energy sources such as solar, ...

    The evidence relating prolonged power-frequency electric and magnetic field exposure to cancer in human populations is examined. It is based on an assessment of the research literature in the areas of epidemiological evidence, animal studies, cellular effects, and knowledge of mechanisms. It is concluded that the evidence for exposure to power-frequency electric and magnetic fields as a cause of c... View full abstract»

    Since the beginning of AC transmission, approximately 100 years ago, lightning protection of transmission equipment has been provided by gaps and by nonlinear resistors, alone or in various combinations. Protection during the early part of the period (1892-1908) was provided by simple air gaps from line to ground. During the period 1908 to 1930, nonlinear resistors based on puncturing and reformin...
