Another example of the 'tech will save us' crowd. Looking for investors I'm sure.


"In just 15 years, the US will be producing unlimited amounts of nearly free, completely green energy. Not only would such an energy holy grail mean the end of humanity’s dependence on expensive fossil fuels, it would also be a panacea for climate change.

Amazingly, this is not a science fiction. It’s actually about to become reality if a collaboration between MIT and Commonwealth Fusion Systems, a private company, is to be believed. The collaborators announced Friday in the journal Nature that they believe they are on the verge of cracking the code to nuclear fusion — and it could be commercially viable in just 15 years, according to The Guardian.

So far, fusion has been an extremely expensive laboratory experiment that requires more energy inputs than it outputs. However, the collaborators believe they’ve found a way to reverse the math. Their system, built upon a new class of super high-temperature superconductors and small, ultra-powerful magnets, would, for the first time, allow for a fusion reaction that outputs more energy than it takes in."

And it just might not be possible. There was a time that a jury of your peers made decisions based on fact not personal agenda. It is a given now that 12 angry men (or women) cannot be assembled to do their duty and render impartial judgment in a court of law.

So, how are we to proceed? I have reason to believe civility could return. But even my oft used analogy of door holding is waning. Goes like this...

That same dude that cursed you for changing lanes on the freeway, will hold the door for you when you arrive at 7-11. Folks that would cut in line at the sales register will hold the elevator door. Why?

But even that common courtesy is waning. Stopping for walkers about to cross the street, standing to give a woman or elderly person a seat on train or bus, verbally abusing sales clerks, shoddy customer service, indifference to the plight of another and just a general rudeness in public permeates society.

Our leaders of late have been liars and dividers. Their detractors have followed that same path. Neither of the two-party political system offers a return to civility. Would have hoped the election of Trump could have triggered a backlash from We The People. Sadly, it would appear that more of same old, same old is in order. Hope and Change was a farce, so the new King of All Media was elected. To my eyes, Drain The Swamp Donald isn't delivering either.

Sad. Just sad.

They had access to these weapons at age 9-10. They hunted, they knew how to shoot, kill game, and clean and process it to eat. They were responsible, and well trained in the use of firearms. They also raised and butchered chickens and hogs. They understood what life, death, and killing animals to eat was all about.

We live in different worlds. My children fully respect firearms, and know how to properly use them, and when. 

Your offspring, as instructed by you, are evidently a victim class. Unable to defend themselves or their loved ones, nor able to provide sustenance for themselves and their children without assistance from a grocery store or a government. They are subjects of those that rule them, and hand them food. 

That didn't happen to my kids under my watch. My kids will survive a societal meltdown. We have weapons, and the ability to provide protection, food, and a secure shelter for our family.

Ask yourself this. If tomorrow, the electricity, city water, and sewer were not available to your family, could you really survive? How long would you make it? Who would defend you, and provide basic needs for your family? It certainly wouldn't be the government. They bugged out with a police escort about the time you figured out you were F'd.

They won't know what hit them, while they rail about TFH.  An easier target couldn't be had

Cold fusion and self generating capacitance has been hyped forever, but nothing has come of it to date.  I have heard that non volatile nuclear production has taken a turn for the better. However, if an alternate source of producing electricity in an open economic market is found that can out perform natural gas turbines, then I am all in. Please get the patents and investors, and lets put the house of Saud, Russia, and the Persians back into the 3rd world where they belong. We have no use of them other than the energy resources they provide to the EU. America certainly is energy independent, and making it's mark on the world oil and gas markets. Really, the US is already set up for energy independence. We have massive production facilities capable of producing oil and gas valves, down hole tools already sitting here. Other nations come here to buy and steal our technology. With an administration in place that actually promotes energy production, instead of hindering it at every opportunity, we are caught between old school oil and gas, and are possibly ready to jump in and lead the world in competitive alternate energy sources that can actually compete with oil and gas without government subsidization. That is a real world market economy in action. It isn't subsidized solar panels, and failing battery banks, nor wind turbines that require public funding to get the power from point a to b.

You are funny. "god" gave us instructions on crop rotations? Really? Did he drop a few manuals down from the sky? The care of wildlife? How about all the species that have gone extinct over the last 300 years owing to man's encroachment on their habitats? There is no "god," but the belief in a bearded sky master has created a lot of people with crazy, deeply dumb ideas.

On second thought, if this is some of your original thoughts, please go back to spouting talking points.

You are really embarrassing yourself.

U.S. fossil fuel companies get an estimated $20 billion in annual subsidies.

Did you even bother reading the article you Atheist?

OCI is only counting direct production subsidies. As they acknowledge, that leaves out a great deal.

For one thing, it leaves out the annual $14.5 billion in consumption subsidies — things like the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), which helps lower-income residents pay their (fuel oil) heating bills. (There are better ways to help poor people, but let’s leave that aside for now.)

So if we cut the so called subsidies, does that mean you support letting your voter base freeze in their section 8 housing?

"Who would defend you, and provide basic needs for your family? It certainly wouldn't be the government."

A Government gone awry probably uses a drone, not unlike those that destroy an enemy's compound in an episode of a good HBO series, to destroy those supposedly safely tucked away in their homes while a deranged society may simply use the old fashion method of burning folks out of an otherwise safe abode.  Not sure any of us are secure in a Country turned upside down.  While arms make for a good source of protection for simpler threats, my faith regarding the safety of this nation as a whole remains with a free press, strong democracy, rule of law, and a united Country.

Well considering we don't really have any of those you can keep on relying on your "faith". See who answers the phone when you call.

Does Dewey realize we are not a democracy?

Major difference between that and a representative republic

Nope. He always thinks of us as a Democracy instead of a Representative Republic. You know, mob rule.

Calls it a democracy except when a majority votes against something he is for, then we need activist judges to overturn the will of the people. If we were a democracy then trannies, who are less than <1% of the population, would not be driving the agenda in the country to favor their genetic defect.
The idiots don’t realize a democracy is 3 wolves and 1 sheep voting on what’s for dinner.

Why do we humans sh1t in our own bed? 



"The Pacific Ocean is being treated like a giant dumpster -- and it's starting to look like one, too. A "floating" island of trash dubbed the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP) now stretches 600,000 square miles, according to a study published Thursday in Scientific Reports.

It's more than twice the size of Texas (three times the size of France), and it's growing every day."
