Modding is a process
What have you done for our common birds nest, lately?

ISS is broadcasting surface images worldwide...

I just got out of the local food store and all lights were dimmed. But, i do recycle everything i can... paper, metal, glass. Objective is 100%, some day.

Sorry, but you're an eco nut.  Anyone bitching about paper is an eco nut. 

 

Most of it is made from tree farms.  Places where, of all things, crazy fuckers do nothing but plant trees and cut them down.  It's more efficient to plant them yourself than it is to let nature do the work.  You want uniform, tightly packed trees that shoot straight up and have as few limbs as possible.

 

Natural forests are mostly being burned to clear ground for farmland.

 

In other words, you need to kill all the poor people, instead of putting all of your hard earned money into making more of them.  That will save the trees.

Ever heard of tectonics? Continental drifting causes Earthquakes that contains sooooooo much energy, it puts thunder or tornado velocity to shame. Call it Core & Magma dynamics at your service.

Talk about 500 year into the future.

 

Heres something thats we might be able to do in the next 20 years, tornado power plants. All you need is a jolt of power from another power source like hydro, to turn a turbine that will create a tornado that will last infinately which ultimatly turns that same turbine to make positive clean energy.

You are correct.

hydro, wind, solar, nuclear
Hydro=Clean, perpetually available from water natural flows.

Wind=costly and too dependant on weather. Netherlands tackled it efficiently, though.

Solar=costly and must be "converted".

What are your thoughts on nuclear power?  Of all the 'green' power sources, nuclear is the only practical one.  Hydro is very dependent on geography, as is geothermal.  Wind and solar fail as base load power sources and are at the mercy of the weather.  The main problem with these alternatives (solar, wind, geothermal and hydro) is that they just don't produce the power needed.  Wind and solar farms are huge and expensive, with little in the way of power generation compared to its cost.  The problem is that the 'greens' don't like nuclear and believe all of our power needs can be met with the above named alternatives.

Specificly look at the nano-vent skin in the article link below, it could be applied anywhere, producing energy from wind and solar and this "skin" is cheap reliable version to solar panals and other things.

That's neat.  However, I'm skeptical.  Until these are proven and economically feasible, then I'll bite.  Too many times have we been promised things like this will work, only to find out later it really doesn't.  Then again, I'm annoyingly cynical.

The skin thing looks cool, but I for one would much rather like to see a nuclear power surge in the short term. I'm also a little scatred by Obama's stance on bio-fuels: They don't work, so why are we throwing money at them?

I've read about Fusion plants. Seems they are building one now and it should work fine or so I heard. Seems this will produce lots of power and with very little risk to the planet.

It's petroleum on steroids.

Instead of dumping CO² in the atmosphere, we let something decay in sealed radioactive containers for centuries.

Sooner or later we'll run out of fuel for that too -- unless Earth isn't the only place where Uranium can be found.

Renewable energy is (somehow) the modern Alchemy quest for the philosophical stone.

Okay, you win.

I'm just fed up receiving junk mail printed and ready for recycling.

Give a man a fish he will eat for a day

Teach him to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.

Teach everyone to fish and nobody eats for very long. Have you seen the state of most of the world's fisheries?

Seriously, teach the third world that 2, maybe 3 kids is quite enough.

If the ultra-collider experiment is any indication, we're far from being cautious (or technologically advanced) enough to rely on fusion plants production for a good long while.

Besides, if you don't produce *much* more than you spend to create energy, you're back to rounded square peg 1 as proven by the film Chain Reaction.

There's always some sort of HUGE methane resources in the arctic, though.

Yes, small families are really the only way to go. However, while nuclear power will eventually run out, it doesn't cause a lot of problems, and until we can get something else, it's the only chance we've got.

Well, i'll be darned someone knows the mathematics of over-population and what consequences it has on EARTHs - of yesterdays and tomorrows.
