here is some evidence that brings that statement into question.
Enough frivolity and fun, for today I return to why this blog site was created: Sustainable Systems for Planet Earth and Humanity. Tomorrow, there will be an incredible part 2 that should be mind-boggling.
- Our Sun and all the stars out there use fusion to create energy.
- The dominant fuel begins with molecular hydrogen, creating a core temperature in the range of 27 million F, but even here, the process is rather complicated.
- However, the ITER tokomak system (that donut shape using magnetic confinement in France) using deuterium-tritium will someday reach 300 million F. The target date keeps disappearing into the future, but current estimates show a cost of $30 billion to produce heat, but not electricity, in about two decades.
- The National Ignition Facility at Livermore, using inertial confinement (essentially, lasers), is designed to exceed 200 million F. Experimentation continues, but all is not well.
- Cold Fusion? Here is the latest from Cold Fusion Times.
That doesn't discourage Ouyang Ziyuan, who is in charge of the Chinese Lunar Exploration Program. He has said that the mining of He3 was a main reason why the country would go to the Moon. It would "only" take one Space Shuttle load/week to supply all the energy for Humanity on Planet Earth.
In 2006 Russia said they plan to mine He3 by 2020. Note however, that this info comes from the UFO Digest. Another typical article is Cow Abducted by Flying Saucer in Argentina.
- Moon (2009), with Kevin Spacey and Sam Rockwell, a film that gained 89%/89% ratings from Rotten Tomatoes. No kidding, He3 for clean energy.
- Iron Sky (2012), where Nazis in 1945 set up a secret base on the Moon to invade Planet Earth with flying saucers. Rotten Tomatoes bestowed 38%/37% ratings.
- Here is a 1990 short clip from NASA.
Oh, oh, Tropical Storm Hector, now to the east of Hawaii, is predicted to at least attain Category 2 hurricane strength. My (and this is totally unofficial) speculation is that previous ocean storms this summer, because of prevailing conditions, have all tracked south of the state, so this should again happen:
