Can Nuclear Fusion Put the Brakes on Climate Change?

Alternative Energy

Let’s say that you’ve devoted your entire adult life to developing a carbon-free way to power a household for a year on the fuel of a single glass of water, and that you’ve had moments, even years, when you were pretty sure you would succeed. Let’s say also that you’re not crazy. This is a reasonable description of many of the physicists working in the field of nuclear fusion. In order to reach this goal, they had to find a way to heat matter to temperatures hotter than the center of the sun, so hot that atoms essentially melt into a cloud of charged particles known as plasma; they did that. They had to conceive of and build containers that could hold those plasmas; they did that, too, by making “bottles” out of strong magnetic fields. When those magnetic bottles leaked—because, as one scientist explained, trying to contain plasma in a magnetic bottle is like trying to wrap a jelly in twine—they had to devise further ingenious solutions, and, again and again, they did. Over decades, in the pursuit of nuclear fusion, scientists and engineers built giant metal doughnuts and Gehryesque twisted coils, they “pinched” plasmas with lasers, and they constructed fusion devices in garages. For thirty-six years, they have been planning and building an experimental fusion device in Provence. And yet commercially viable nuclear-fusion energy has always remained just a bit farther on. As the White Queen, in “Through the Looking Glass,” said to Alice, it is never jam today, it is always jam tomorrow.

The accelerating climate crisis makes fusion’s elusiveness more than cutely maddening. Solar energy gets more efficient and affordable each year, but it’s not continuously available, and it still relies on gas power plants for distribution. The same is true for wind power. Conventional nuclear power has extremely well-known disadvantages. Carbon capture, which is like a toothbrush for the sky, is compelling, but after you capture a teraton or two of carbon there’s nowhere to put it. All these tools figure extensively in decarbonization plans laid out by groups like the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, but, according to those plans, even when combined with one another the tools are insufficient. Fusion remains the great clean-energy dream—or, depending on whom you ask, pipe dream.

    COVID-19 is the leading cause of death for police officers–
    While not a dangerous job (not even in the top 15), stupidity does prevail.
    (Nearly 476 police officers have died of COVID-19 since the pandemic started, compared to the 93 deaths as a result of gunfire in the same time period)

    “Why has public education been under attack by the right since the landmark Brown v. Board of Education ruling began school intergation? Because racial discrimination aside, breeding more dupes and dopes is in con men’s interests. The more they can keep people from learning to think critically, the easier the con man’s job.

    Trump’s stolen election con was as “transparent as a freshly cleaned window,” yet millions are still his dupes. Now they are too invested to admit to themselves they were hoodwinked by mountebanks and corrupt politicians. The country remains in peril as much from comicbook super villains as their hapless goons.”

    Why are conservetards worried about anything since the ‘globalists’ have already dealt a death blow, in the form of vaccines, to their competition which in the US is Dems? Why not just sit back & watch them die from evil vaccine?

    According to every press release from conspiracy tard central their competition’s dead real soon.
    Strangely they are very vague on the date. They’ve exposed the biggest conspiracy in history, but can’t tell when my head or whatever is going to explode. For reasons I’m not privy to, I’m still being told, ‘just you wait & see mister’ & ‘any day now’….again. Same shit you guys have been telling me for 50 years running. Anyday now – Got it.

    It makes perfect sense that they would want to kill off the highly cooperative people which includes most of the highly skilled taxpayers & be left alone with unemployed paranoid malcontents who spend their days & nights online bitching & moaning & trying to get others to do the dirty work they can’t do because it requires one to leave mommy’s basement.

    Yup makes perfect sense, to a retard.

    Anti-Vax Flat Earth Preacher Dies of COVID-19

    “Rob Skiba, an influential figure in flat earth and Christian circles, has died of COVID-19, colleagues announced on Thursday. He had been fighting the virus since at least late August, when he began exhibiting symptoms after “Take On The World,” a biblical flat earth conference. “He has been sick since coming back from TOTW,” a Facebook friend posted in early September, adding that Skiba had been hospitalized for low oxygen levels. One of the country’s most prominent advocates of Flat Earth Theory, Skiba was also skeptical of COVID-19 vaccines and some of the illness’ treatments. On the first day of the Take On The World conference, Skiba authored a Facebook post suggesting that the COVID-19 vaccines were dangerous.”

    One of my nigher does not seek to be able to talk other then small words like: merci, allo.

    He change from light brown to dark brown. They are selling their house now. He lost a lot of weight. Teeth are not like human teeth.

    They seem to like to hide among brown people: Arab,. Indian, Pakistani, Asian, Indian.

    If I was a brown skin human that bled red, I would upset that the hijack my race for their own personal purposes.

    I think we are having help from a specie that we cannot see and can only communicate by modifying things that run on electricity. They could be the ones modifying the internet YouTube, Porn website and are trying to help us.

    I had another session of energy exchange with some spirits. It is similar to orgasm but different. I say orgasm so people can relate to it. This one really special, it is like I was completely surrounded by an energy field instead of a burst of energy.

    They seem to hate the Whites man, we should push nationalism in White Western nation. They are using diversity to hide in Western nations.

    We could looking at a specie that is stealing energy fort the earth realm by shape shifting into human. This is why everything is dying, they are sucking too much energy and not enough energy are left to grown trees, wildlife, fishes.

  17. SomeOfMyMusing on Sat, 23rd Oct 2021 2:52 pm 

    I had to go do some work outside. The house. A bunch a kids started to play football in front on the move. I walk until the end of my driveway to look at them better. All of them had fuck up ears, brown, look like there from Arabic origin before morphing. All were brown lite skin. They like to hide among the Arabic race. I would be really upset if I was an Arab and I bleed red.

    One of my stupid neighbor that was White but is now morphing just bought a toyota electrical van. These pieces of shit are too stupid and are basically primitive animals. This electrical crap will deplete lithium and other natural resources and make things worst. They are so primitive that they like to be told what to do and what to think. We can abuse them as much as we want, I doubt they would do anything about.

  18. SomeOfMyMusing on Sat, 23rd Oct 2021 3:20 pm 

    Diversity never meant diversity among human. It means diversity and acceptance of other species that are not human. We might have more then one kind of species invading us. They seems to hide mainly in the Asian, Indian, Arab and a little bit of black. I have a Chinese couple where the man is also morphing with a long neck.

    I still thing they are all primitive animal.

  19. SomeOfMyMusing on Sat, 23rd Oct 2021 3:49 pm 

    I think as long we keep the food supply chain and electrical working, even at reduced level, they will no revolt. I think we can abuse them as much as it pleases us.

  20. SomeOfMyMusing on Sat, 23rd Oct 2021 3:54 pm 

    We should portrait the White man as a vicious killer and a warrior. I think that will scare them. Like this here
