+Vax King If you can figure out a way for the laser to produce more energy than it consumes all the power to you, otherwise it's just a waste of energy, not a solution.

ITER is just an incremental step, but a very necessary one. If it works they could attach a generation plant and it would produce more power than it consumes. The step after that is a fully functional fusion generator, so 2050/2060 is a reasonable estimate for the first commercial fusion reactor. The issue now is to stop emitting too much carbon dioxide in the mean time.

Reactor and fuel engineers would LOVE to get 5% fission of uranium or plutonium fuels. In fact, the fuel bundles are removed from the core of light BWRs when only 0.5 to 0.7% of the fuel has fissioned.
Rawsawn (2 days ago)
Fusion is the way to go i think, i heard they build a magnetic field to use as a "box" they sustained it for a few seconds before they had to shut it off. I cant think of a better energy source than Sun v2.0 in terms of amounts and space needed and ressources used to replace parts and amount of energy supplied. Human cyborg energy seems like enslavement with extra steps. The ones in the water will take much maintainence, the ones in the air will have its fair share of problems too, bio energy looks to be great, although how will it perform on a grandscale? Geothermal energy is just asking for it to go wrong the way i understand it.

space debris is there at aspecific height above earth. We can set up the miirors at a height above that. Or we can scavenge the moon itself using artificially intelligent nano bots which replicate themselves and work on the suface of moon. Soon the entire moon can be reshaped to absorv sunlight and focus it at earth and yeah we can absorv that massive amount of energy to power everything else.

I also hope to see human and animal waste processed for 1) oils for biodiesel, 2) protein for animal food, 3) fiber for biofuel, 4) nitrates for fertilizers, and 5) methane for natural gas fuel. Some of these have been done a little, but as technology gets better, I think we will really be able to turn abundant waste into abundant resources.

Hydraulic pumps can as be used to pump water, hydraulic power is powerful at 2500 p,s,I, to 3000 p,s,I, which can be harnessed in many ways. So much more torque than electricity, and less expensive, with less maintenance.
Jim Agnew (26 days ago)
A power source can be created if a person had the land and the money? Build a reinforced concrete flywheel around 200 feet tall, around 25 feet or so wide around 20 feet thick with large I beams for spokes attached to a huge axle mounted on huge plaster footings, build slide weights that will slide up and down on the I beams spokes, allow them to go up and out at one o'clock to 6 o'clock , retract them from 6 o'clock to 12 o'clock, the counter weighs will have to be around 40or 50 tons each, mounded to 12 spokes, may need a pony motor to start the rotation, can be started on its own, but will take longer to get going, To harness the power, a ring can be placed on the outside 0f the flywheel, one on each side, mount a low profile heavy equipment tire mounted on a axle to a large trunk transmission turned around backwards, where the gears can be changed, by mounting the transmission this way it will be like a overdrive, hooked to a hydraulic pump plumbed with hard lines to a heavy equipment hydraulic pump, adapted to a heavy equipment transmission turned around backwards to up the gear ratios, then hook it up to a electric generator which can be geared by charging the gears in the transmission, the torque will be well enough and will be hard to stop. More than one set of tires can be used to harness even more power to other generators, no cost to operate except for maintenance, have been thinking about this for years and can not get it off of my mind, this is the first time that I have ever had the opportunity to bring this up to people like you all, thank you all for your patience and time. It was all just a thought. Thanks.

The World Health Organization has studied and found that current nuclear generation is the SAFEST form of producing electricity, including statistics from Fukushima and Chernobyl.

Useful video. I like the fusion, like the thorium reactor and recycled old nuclear instead of storing it. I have solar and I like tidal and wind. The excess power can be stored in liquid salts, hydroelectric storage for night generation or hydrogen fuel cells for use in airplanes and night time power grid energy use.

There is already multiples of light speed by superluminal craft, using thought by symbiotic interface. Distances to 88 light years. Wind is a complete scam, and solar not much better while subsidised. Both low density generation. The deep state already has the box, and uses a tokomac cold fusion reactor. There are multiple nations repeating the same process very slowly. Lockheed is not interested in bringing these into the public realm. The military industrial complex is some 1,000 years ahead of the public. Ever listen to Ben Rich ? How about Col Tom Beardon ? Perhaps David Sereda ? And there are others. Helium 3 mining on the moon, bases on Mars under terraforming as is earth by geoengineering that destroys organic food allowing GMO to flourish and using a combination of other means, to alter DNA. of the masses.

You promote Hydrogen, but the processes needed to obtain hydrogen in the first place, is hugely inefficient. Making overall efficiency of hydrogen only about 30% . Separating Hydrogen, pressurizing or cooling hydrogen, converting it to stored energy, and back to usable by electric motors...Every step of these processes takes a lot of energy and costs a lot, and if coal power is used, you also pollute to make 'green energy' . Batteries will remain vastly more efficient until we can find better ways to harvest and store Hydrogen

You have neglected the background radiation. Not a full tank, but the needle never moves. That means you now have an infinite supply, with minimal danger and omnipresent location. It's a form of radiant energy that doesn't rely on any one body of mass, it uses all of the mass that the speed of light allows us to observe.

I'm surprised you limited your geothermal entry to just pouring water on a lava stream! Apparently, you've never heard of a heat pump!? All over America, if you dig down just 10 feet you'll find the ground is a fairly consistent 54ºF. So if you want to heat your house in winter or cool your house in summer you just have to bury a long loop of pipes underground and transfer energy either out of the ground into your house or out of your house back into the ground! Works best in warm climates though.
Ian Macdonald (1 month ago)
The only feasible or practical one listed is fusion. Although, I don't think you mentioned thorium molten salt reactors, which are doable on a shorter timescale than fusion. Fast breeder reactors can work, but the safety aspects are worrying. Wind turbines and solar PV have so far cost us over $2trillion and provide under 1% of world energy. Flying wind turbines? Will not last, the weather will soon destroy them. As with wave energy.
You forgot the energy harvested from human farts on a daily basis.This will cover the entire global energy requirements of the time.
Lindhard Morten (1 month ago)
1.. Fast breeder reactors liquid is so corrosive that we still dont know how to contain it. But getting rid of the nuclear waste that way is worth developing. But stop all other reactors creating more of that leathal waste. Fukushimas triple china syndrome is still leaking huge amounts of radioactive waste into the Pacific which has suffered mass death amongst all animal groups. I hear a roaring silence from the institutions that should tell us wether these events are related. 2: You forgot CSP Concentrated Solar Power combined with liquid salt heatstorage to produce steam power 24/7 - a low tech system utilising deserts- not farmland, but allso able to produce cheap fresh water to make the desert green by desalinating seawater. 3% of Sahara can deliver all Europes energy and could help develop Africa at the same time. Direct current high voltage cables can distribute electricity with very little loss. Siemens has built a powerline in China w less than 3% loss/1000km. 3: Fusion energy will never be cheap, so stop wasting money on it. Those billions wasted could have built the solar farms we need long ago. For the past 40 years the breaktrough in solving the problem with fusion has allways been 20 years away.

Soon, I will be releasing a video on how to change potential energy into kinetic energy without the loss of potential energy. The output force will always equal the input force plus 50% at a 1 to 1 ratio. It is called a mechanical piston engine.

Our water is our most precious (and scarce) element on our fragile planet and must last the Earth millions of years into the future. The Sun produces, in one minute, more energy than mankind has used since we began burning fuels. Water is life. Please, lets not start burning it. No matter how good 'scientists make it sound, don't we know it is a mistake.
GTCatFastCars (1 month ago)
How about this? Build 1 km wide solar collectors orbiting the sun (a few hundred will probably do the trick) and transfer that energy to a solar storage device. Then use that energy to power a giant laser, which will create a proton-sized black hole (yes, black holes can be made from light). The small size will prevent the black hole from gaining to much mass because it will release A WHOLE LOT of Hawking radiation (radiation that black holes emit). Then we can harvest the energy from the radiation to do GIANT STUFF--powering a galactic civilization for example. 100% conversion of matter into energy. We will be able to feed matter to the black hole to counteract its evaporation. Link to where I got this information from: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jW55cViXu6s&vl=en

Personally, I would rather use thorium as humanity's saving grace from global warming because its a proven technology compared to that of fusion. And although many of these technologies are proven, very few can come close to nuclear reactors in terms of generating electricity. While solar pannels and wind turbines are great, they still trail behind in terms of the amount of electricty generated. Though this could change, I can't say humanity is in the position to just wait for these to get better. We are on a deadline
