2019-10-01 Renewable Energy Denial

https://www.resilience.org/stories/2019-09-12/what-is-energy-denial/ I left a Comment: This myths list makes no room for solutions, it ignores what is already being done to address many of its concerns. The claim about the Mojave Desert is one example. California is leading the way to making renewables a major part of the energy consumed. Hundreds of thousands of homes

2019-09-24 Climate Change More Expensive To Fix The Damage

from FB reply to a comment Sep 27 I watched the video of the press conference on SROCC. What he said is that if the CC deniers delay the changes needed to halt climate change, it’s going to cost many times the amount needed to fix the mess later. “… Over time, paying for climate

2019-09-20 Thermonuclear Fusion And Fission, NPPs

from FB comment to Bill Bill Sherman When I was young, Thermonuclear fusion was “Twenty years until we have free energy.” When I was concerned about Y2K, Thermonuclear fusion was “Twenty years until we have free energy.” Now that I’m old, it’s Thermonuclear fusion was “Twenty years until we have free energy.” I’ll be long

2019-06-03 Biomass? Be Concerned About Other More Important Things!

From YouTube video Denmark is Riding the Winds of Change, June 5 It amuses me how these dilettantes (with 1st names starting with K) argue about the pros and cons of bullshit (biomass) while the world is going to hell! 😡😡😣😣😲 Why are you concerned about trivialities when we should be concerned about the future?

2019-03-26 Fukushima Daiichi NPP Article

From https://news.nationalgeographic.com/2016/07/indian-point-nuclear-power-new-york-documentary/ “You traveled to Fukushima to film. What was your big takeaway from there?” “I found it incredibly chilling to be there. The plant itself is very strange. You don’t smell or see or touch radiation, so you don’t know. But [there’s] this whole process of getting completely suited up, and there are literally

2018-12-04 FETs For Very Low Voltage Joule Thiefs

from FB group Building Transistor Radios 2018 Dec 4 Terry Harris I didn’t try to mimic the ALD, I used the FETs for a voltage booster. The typical 5mm LED needs somewhere around 60 mW for Max brightness. If I was powering it with 60 millivolts, it would require over an amp to get the

20185-10-13 Limiting Global Warming To 1.5 Deg. C

I was reading this article about the catastrophe that awaits us in the near future, in the next 20 to 35 years. It states that limiting the global warming will be hard, really hard. But it’s something that has to be done if life as we know it is to be saved. As the article

2018-09-03 Nuclear Power Is Not Economical

from YouTube video TEDx talk comment pro nuclear power, see 2018-09-04 To paraphrase an earlier comment: “Wow! Spread the word! There is so much *left*out* with this talk!” Did you notice he left out any mention of the economic aspects of nuclear power generation? There are THREE nuclear power plants that are sitting partially built

2018-08-30 Using Radio Signal To Power A Receiver

From FB group Building Transistor Radios 2018-09-01 There are too many ‘gotchas.’ You have to put up a large sized antenna to gather enough power to run the circuit. That means you cannot use this in a city where the properties are too small, due to lack of space. You go to the country where

2018-07-18 Storage Batteries For Renewable Energy Systems

Reply left on comments for a YouTube Ted talk by Sadoway on molten magnesium – molten salt – molten antimony storage battery David Tiessen Long ago I calculated that the number of solar panels to populate such a large area would be in the billions. But saying it would have to be the size of
