The Promise of Fusion: Energy Miracle or Mirage?
Posted by keelynet on November 28, 2010
The U.S. has invested billions of dollars trying to create a controlled form of nuclear fusion that could be the energy source for an endless supply of electricity. The world’s largest and highest-energy laser focuses the intense energy of 192 separate laser beams into an even more intense single beam aimed at a BB-sized target filled with hydrogen fuel, with the goal of creating a tiny star by replicating the process that powers the sun and similar celestial bodies. This controlled form of fusion theoretically could tap into the boundless energy that binds the universe together, creating intense heat and driving huge generators that could supply enough power to run the entire world’s electricity grid in perpetuity.
Controlled fusion would produce no greenhouse gases, would not require hazardous nuclear fuel, would produce shorter-lived and less hazardous waste than nuclear reactors, and would pose no danger of a runaway reaction, because fusion reactions are hard to start and quickly halt after running out of fuel.
Sound too good to be true? Well, so far it has been.
The massive energy gain from controlled fusion is a prize that scientists have sought for decades. Yet to date, no laboratory has successfully pulled off a controlled, small-scale fusion reaction in which the…(get this!);
“energy created by the reaction
exceeded the energy needed
to generate the reaction.”
(Why, wouldn’t that be FREE ENERGY, the very same thing we alt science researchers are looking for and for which we are constantly lambasted at every turn by the uninformed?
Despite what the uninformed think, We never claimed ‘energy from nothing’,
we claim CONVERSION OF ENERGY just as the ‘fusioneers’ are trying to do, but we use MANY different methods. See Primer for Skeptics and Attackers – JWD)
But researchers at the National Ignition Facility — part of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories — insist they are making progress toward this elusive goal.
(All that money thrown into the same kind of dream so many free energy experimenters envision…so what makes these spendthrift idealistic fusion bozos who have FAILED FOR DECADES and wasted BILLIONS OF DOLLARS, more sure of their fantastic claims than we are of the possibilities from our experiments?
This is what ticks me off about investors and engineers who say what alternative science researchers look for don’t have a chance of coming up with anything that will produce free energy, gravity control, etc..
Investors WAKE UP and Smell the Coffee!
and counting for FAILED Fusion Research
versus a few
Remember most of the great, useful and profitable inventions came from lone inventors working on their own and with limited funds, not BILLIONS. Take just a fraction of that money and FUND maverick ideas and projects. It only takes ONE to work. What makes more sense, billions for one idealistic chance or millions for MANY CHANCES…Think about it. Click for A prime example and WHY we WOULD do it! – JWD) – Full Article Source
And with regard to technology LIKE FUSION that ALSO DOESN’T WORK, Lewis Black on Airport Security – Skip to about 11:30….the point here is they have so much technology that just DOESN’T WORK but still they waste our MONEY and our TIME to put us through it. Machines in airports don’t work. We must spend our money to build equipment that WORKS. Metal Detector, nope, check you again. The Wand, nope. Now we have to Pat You down. Just pat us down in the FIRST PLACE and stop wasting our time and all that wasted MONEY with faulty technology.
(Same with FUSION! It DOESN’T WORK so shut it down and direct resources to other projects that might work out better. Just think of the odds 1 or 1000 in your favor, which is better? So FUND Alternative Science Research and Experiments!)
