Instead of people waffling about lifestyle changes.....which in reality will make bugger all difference to anything related to climate change....One of the real technologies that would literally change the world.....literally almost putting it into another era is nuclear fusion....affecting much more than the environment.

As has been said, this technology has always been 50 years away....which is what they said 50 year ago....But we have recently been making breakthroughs.

Here's a link to a video on it.

I believe that new forms of energy have been available for years but have been suppressed.

We will only see them at the eleventh hour.

It's all about the money......as the brass said to the vicar.

150 years if you mean the hydrogen cell...waste is water.

Nuclear fusion will be the turning point for our species, it's huge & if we pull it off we have a good chance of extending our short time on this rock.

Also weather control technology is far more advanced than I previously thought.

One huge electrode in the Atlantic, one huge diode in the Pacific - one huge battery. We needn't worry.

Apologies if this post is a bit wooly I can't find the article it was a a few years ago.

Before nuclear fusion is a reality I think you will see a major break through in conventional nuclear power stations.

Nuclear power stations are powered by uranium and produce plutonium as a by product useful for nuclear bombs.

Back in the 1950's American scientists realised that you could use another power source instead of uranium (I can't remember what it is Lithium?). Anyway they never pursued this because it doesn't create plutonium which was their real goal.

The documents were released a few years ago and ignored by everyone except the Chinese. They realised that this was safe technology because you cannot use it to build nuclear weapons. They also realised that the waste instead of taking thousands of years to decay broke down a lot quicker. The design of the theoretical reactor and surrounding building should also be easier and a lot cheaper.

The target date the Chinese gave for a prototype reactor was about 2025. I haven't seen this mentioned since but hopefully it will be a reality. Countries like North Korea and Iran could then have safe nuclear technology.

Anyway here's hoping.

 


One more point

I believe France uses a lot of nuclear power with minimal problems. Something about the way their power stations differ from the type we use. Probably left hand drive.

There is a reason why the bulk of them are along their north coast. #prevailing wind.

Blimey Dan, how's it been going out there?

I'll have a peep at this weather control stuff.

I invested a few quid in a US company working on fusion.
To date have lost 80% of investment. In theory, if ever successful , will make a pile but realistically will be glad to break even in next 10 -15 years - if I around that long!

Hello Stirling, love it out here, I've got mountains/forests/lakes no more than 10 minutes away in every direction, crime is pretty much non existant & life is a little slower. I took a day off from working on the house yesterday & spent it on a mountain snowboarding & getting a sun tan.
House will be ready at the very latest June, radiators went in today & pretty much were just waiting on the gas to be hooked up.

As for the residency thing I'll post it up on the brexit thread as its a bit more relevant there.
