LENR vs Solar/Wind, and emerging Green Technologies.

  • Solar? I Imagine it would be nice to have a solar panel to keep the starter battery charged up if your CMNS energy unit is not in use for a while.

    I do not think that would be necessary. A cold fusion generator might need a stand-by battery to start up. Or perhaps a supercapacitor. However, if the battery charge dropped, the device could turn on for a while to recharge it. It would be a good idea to run the generator from time to time anyway, especially if it is mechanical. A thermoelectric generator might be left for months without running.


  • Michigan State University (MSU) students share a passion for both solving the climate crisis and mitigating wildfires with Anthropocene.
    For their Capstone Project, a group of talented computer science students sponsored by Anthropocene Institute, created WRiFT (Wildfire Risks Forecasting Tool) over the course of a semester. Their sophisticated simulation and forecasting tool can be used by anyone, anywhere to determine how wildfire might affect their local community and to determine how to protect their families, homes, and neighbors.
    For their hard work and resourcefulness, the team won the Amazon Sigma Award, the top prize among 30 teams that took part in the Spring 2022 Capstone program at MSU.



    Congrats to Team WRiFT!

    MSU was our main local rival in Collegiate Ultimate. A very competitive mindset can be found there. Last week I encountered a former Michigan Decathlete at the Venice Beach Basketball courts. Another example of the passion fostered at the University which improves life on our small planet.

  • The ‘‘Green Nobel’’ is a nod to grassroots environmentalism and a gateway to greatness. The 2022 Goldman Environmental Prize will be awarded May 25, reports The Examiner’s Jessica Wolfrom. The prize was the brainchild of Richard and Rhoda Goldman, San Francisco philanthropists who noted the lack of exaltation for environmental conservation efforts. First awarded in 1989, the prize now boasts over 200 global winners. The core values of the award have shifted with the tide of the environmental movement; once conservation based, and now focused on climate change and the recognition of historical inequities within the field. In a Q&A with the executive director of the Goldman Prize, Mike Sutton, Wolfrom unpacks the complexity of administering awards in a controversial, underappreciated discipline, grassroots environmentalism and the concentric evolution of the prize and its parent purpose.

  • Mixing laser beams and X-ray beams

    by Max Born Institute for Nonlinear Optics and Short Pulse Spectroscopy (MBI)


    Quote

    Wave-mixing processes between different light beams are one cornerstone of the field of nonlinear optics, which has become firmly established since lasers have become widely available. Within a suitable material such as particular crystals, two laser beams can "feel each other's presence." In this process, energy and momentum can be exchanged, giving rise to additional laser beams emerging from the interaction zone in different directions and with different frequencies, seen in the visible spectral range as different colors. These effects are commonly used to design and realize new laser light sources. -end quotes
