Cold Fusion is very much alive and it might be the energy game changer we had hoped for when the first announcement by Fleichman and Pons was greeted with hostility and ridicule…
Excellent Geopolitical #LENR Analysis
Phi Beta Iota: Deep analysis could be read word by word. Bottom line is that low cost energy would topple the energy and military complexes, cut agricultural and other complex costs in half, and terminate the power of Saudi Arabia and Iran, among others. What are missing at the international and national levels are holistic analytics, true cost economics, and the ability to define a migration path that stabilizes the 99% with peace and prosperity.
Manufacturing consent in science: the diabolical twist
Predatory corporations who spray poisonous pesticides all over the world and cause birth defects need special protection and cover? Invent, overnight, and broadcast, a consensus that a basically harmless virus is the cause of those tragic defects. I can assure you there are many scientists who don’t, for a second, believe the Zika virus is the agent of destruction. But they are keeping their mouths shut now and rolling with the tide.
These Solar Panels Can Generate Electricity Using Rain
Solar power has always been spotty in less than ideal weather conditions. Are cities just going to shut down when the clouds start appearing? Alas, it seems so. But there is hope. Fortunately, a team of Chinese scientists are working to solve this problem. In a study published in Angewandte Chemie, Chinese scientists note that they are now able to create electricity with the assistance of raindrops. This is thanks to a thin layer of graphene they use to coat their solar cells during testing.
