Fracking explained: opportunity or danger
Fracking explained in five minutes. Fracking is a controversial topic. On the one side the gas drilling companies, on the other citizen opposed to this drilling method. Politicians are also divided on the matter. We try to take a neutral look on fracking. It is relevant for all of us, because of high prices for energy and the danger for our drinking water. This video focuses mostly on the debate currently ongoing in europe. In a lot of european countries there is a public outcry against fracking, espacially in germany. But the facts in this video are relevant to all of us. Short videos, explaining things. For example Evolution, the Universe, Stock Market or controversial topics like Fracking. Because we love science. We would love to interact more with you, our viewers to figure out what topics you want to see.

Europe's coal pollution problem
19,500 people across Europe and beyond died prematurely in 2015 due to coal pollution from EU's coal plants, and unless we accelerate the phaseout of coal plants, more people will needlessly suffer health problems, and have their lives cut short. This timelapse animation shows the movement of PM2.5 air pollution from the EU's coal plants across Europe, with one frame per hour, every hour, all year.

Light Your Water On Fire from Gas Drilling, Fracking
A video by Scott Cannon DEP consent order proving methane migration: http://imgur.com/OWUXAYN http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL062539BFB8A2B2D4&feature=view_all Please read this before saying methane migration doesn't exist. It's a proven fact: http://thetimes-tribune.com/news/sunday-times-review-of-dep-drilling-records-reveals-water-damage-murky-testing-methods-1.1491547 The Promised Land in real life. Matt Damon John Krasinski People can light their taps on fire because of gas drilling. This is one of those cases. In fact, one of the companies that produced Truthland, Chesapeake Energy, was responsible for this mess. A snippet from the Marcellus Shale Reality Tour video Sherry Vargson gave the group a tour of her farm in Granville Township, where Chesapeake Energy has drilled one well and installed compressor and metering stations and a gathering pipeline. She said her water became contaminated with methane after maintenance activities at the site in June 2010, and lit water from her tap alight for a trip attendees and the media. The little bus wound its way over green mountains, alongside undeveloped stretches of the meandering Susquehanna River and through some of Pennsylvania's most pristine wilderness. The man inside with the microphone, the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition's Scott Cannon, said there's trouble in paradise as he pointed out the changes Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling has brought to Pennsylvania's Northern Tier. Here was a drilling rig, there a water withdrawal site and every so often yet another pipeline was laid out in preparation for burial. The sights were part of the coalition's "Marcellus Shale Reality Tour," held Sunday for area legislators, municipal representatives and candidates for political office. "We still have to deal with pipelines, compressor stations; they wanted to put a frack water treatment facility in Hanover Township -- that was an hour away from the nearest drill site," Cannon said. About 15 people attended the tour, including candidate for U.S. representative Bill Vinsko, Wilkes-Barre Administrative Coordinator Drew McLaughlin and Luzerne County Council candidates Kathleen Dobash, Salvatore Licata, Eileen Sorokas and Michelle Bednar. "It's all about information," Sorokas said. "You can't beat going firsthand and seeing it. I've heard so many things about it; I want to clarify it in my mind." "It's important to learn about all sides of this important issue," said Vinsko, a Democrat who plans to a 2012 challenge to Republican Lou Barletta in Pennsylvania's 11th Congressional District. "In order to make informed decisions, I wanted to hear from the landowners on both sides of the issue. I also plan to meet with the gas companies to get all sides of the story, but this is an important first step." At least one trip participant had already made up his mind about the issue. Throop Borough Council President Tommy Lukasewicz said he has been fighting against the efforts of Keystone Sanitary Landfill to increase its daily intake by 2,500 tons, which would allow it to accept more solid waste from the gas drilling industry. "I agree more than anyone here probably that this is the worst thing that could happen to Northeastern Pennsylvania," he said, adding that he believes gas drilling could reverse the progress the area has made in erasing the scars left 50 years ago by coal mining. Lukasewicz, who attended Mansfield University and often drove through Bradford County to get there, said he "wanted to see firsthand what an area (he) had known about looks like now."

Mississippi Power & Southern Company's CO2 Capturing Coal Plant is a FRAUD
Mississippi Power's CO2 Capturing Lignite Coal Plant in Kemper County is based on FRAUDULENT SCIENCE. My favorite Gulf Coast Morning Radio Show host Kipp Greggory, interviewed former NASA scientist and White House Adviser, John L Casey, Author of COLD SUN. This is a portion of the exchange. The Space and Science Research Corporation, (SSRC) is an independent scientific research organization in Orlando, Florida, USA. It has become the leading research organization in the United States on the subject of the science and planning for the next climate change to a long lasting cold era especially with regard to alerting the government, the media, and the people of the need to prepare for this new climate era. Its staff of Supporting Researchers includes some of the world's best in the fields of solar physics and geology including earthquake science and volcanism. The SSRC and its President, Mr. John L. Casey, have an established record of accuracy in climate change predictions using the Relational Cycle Theory or RC Theory of climate change, a theory based on solar cycles as the main drivers behind the Earth's variations in climate. The Mission of the SSRC Is: To provide an independent un-biased resource for the government, media, corporations, and the people on important areas of scientific research and engineering, especially the science behind the next climate change and measures that can be taken to prepare for it.

Power Struggles: The Proposed Desert Rock Power Plant
Although the Navajo Nation Council became the first tribal government to approve green jobs legislation by establishing a Navajo Green Economy Commission and approving an account to fund the effort, the Council is still keeping alive projects that utilize natural resources like the proposed Desert Rock Energy Project, a 1,500-megawatt coal-burning power plant that Navajo President Joe Shirley has said would be one of the "cleanest" coal-burning plants in the nation. But if built, this power plant -- whose electricity would go to Las Vegas and Phoenix -- will contribute 12.7 million tons of CO2 into an area where two of the worst polluting plants in the country, the Four Corners Power Plant and the San Juan Generating Station, already exist. Many of the local residents have no running water or electricity themselves, but are being toxified by these existing plants and mining operations. An excessive 1.4 billion gallons of water would be used annually for the proposed Desert Rock plant in an already arid climate. (In the western part of the Navajo Nation, Peabody Coal Company's abusive practices have nearly emptied the Navajo Aquifer, yet Peabody wants to construct two additional lines for coal slurrying through Hopi & Navajo lands, and tap into the Coconino Aquifer.) In other parts of the US, mining companies have water testing and liners in place for their depositories of spent coal, called fly ash. On the Navajo Nation, these fly ash depositories sit in unlined pits leeching untested runoff water into the minimal water supply the Navajo have to live on, or blowing into the atmosphere. Selenium, nuclear isotopes, sulfur dioxide, & nitrogen dioxide (all components of acid rain), and 29 million tons of CO2 are emitted from these existing plants. Adding yet another coal plant will increase these numbers by 43%. Since the 1950s, the mining companies' and Nuclear Regulatory Commission's legacy of irresponsibility has left land and water toxic on the Navajo Nation and a population riddled with cancer and birth defects that still appear today. The Jackpile Mine, near the NM-AZ border is the largest open pit uranium mine in the world, and the site of the worst radioactive spill in history. In an area of 55% unemployment and 65% poverty rate, the Desert Rock proponents, Navajo Nation President Shirley and the Navajo Nation Council promise that impoverished Navajo people will experience "untold economic benefit". The council has made all the necessary approvals for construction of the Desert Rock coal plant to go forward, but the US Environmental Protection Agency has asked an appeals board to remand the air permit it granted. It's necessary to move away from what has greatly contributed to the Navajo government's general fund -- royalties from uranium, coal, oil and gas. With the grinding poverty on the reservation on one side of the equation and their reverence for their heartland on the other side, the Navajos face a dilemma: Should they capitalize on the opportunities emanating from the Desert Rock power plant and accept the risk of cultural disharmony and environmental damage in the heart of their venerated Dinétah? Or should they hold true to their traditions and values and reject the plant? Navajo David Nez summarized the issue for Jeff Conant, writing for the CorpWatch Internet site, "Is the goal of the Navajo people to get rich?" asked Nez. "Because 'quality of life', even if you're poor, means clean air, clean water, beautiful scenery."

Tar Sands Oil Extraction - The Dirty Truth
Environmental devastation of the land, water, and air - the largest industrial energy project in the world is extracting crude oil from bitumen found beneath the pristine boreal forest of Alberta, Canada. Effecting a land mass equivalent in size to Florida or England, Both industry and government are putting money before the health and security of its people and the environment. Tar sands take 3 barrels of water to process every barrel of oil extracted. Ninety percent of this water becomes so toxic that it must be stored in tailing ponds. Unfortunately these ponds regularly leach pollution into the third largest watershed in the world. Water depletion, exploitation, privatization and contamination has become one of the most important issues facing humanity this century. Check out my other video on water issues: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMmpg35Bym0 and see my other videos to learn about the dark side of fossil fuels.

But Mitsubishi group forced to shut down entire project when petroleum replaced coal in 1960, closed mining in 1974. The island remain closed for next 35 years and became an abandoned island. In 2009 Japanese government re-opened travel to this ghost island. 8 Michigan Central Station, Detroit, USA The construction of Michigan central station began in 1913 as a main transportation station. The main aim behind the construction of this station to serve large number of passengers at a time. But after the World War II many of services from the station cut back as they faced large decline in number of passengers. 7 IM Cooling Tower, Belgium This cooling tower is a part of abandoned IM powerplant in Monceau, Belgium. IM powerplant built in the year 1921 and became main supplier of power for the country in short time. But the high amount of CO2 emission result in closing of power plant in 2007 and whole crea get deserted. During active time the IM cooling tower managed to cools down 480000 gallons of water per minute. 6 Abandoned Submarine Base, Balaklava, Ukraine Once Balaklava town was one of most secret sites of Soviet Union. This submarine base is the main focusing site of Balaklava. Before the dissolution of Soviet Union in 1991 people cout not visit anyone in Balaklava without having good reason. 5 House of Bulgarian Communist Party, Bulgaria The house of Bulgarian communist party or Buzludzha monuments located within the peaks of balkan mountains of Bulgaria. It was used from 1981 to 1991 as a meeting place of leaders of communist party of Soviet Union. Many political rallies and ceremonies related to communist party took place within this place. 4 Sanzhi UFO Houses , Taiwan Sanzhi UFO houses are abandoned pod shaped building within the city of Taipei in Taiwan. These UFO houses were built back in 1978 as tourist resorts. But the authorities forced to close this vacation spot in 1980 due to investment loss. It is also said to be once that areas was a burial place of soldiers and nothing get succeed within that place. 3 Abandoned New Bedford Orpheum Theatre, United States New Bedford orpheum theatre also known as majestic opera house, opened in the year 1912. The orpheum remain in operation for long fifty years. But in 1959 the theatre get closed and became a storage place of tobacco. Today major parts of this theatre remain untouched and rest of them became a part of a super market. 2 Haunted Salto Hotel, Columbia Salto hotel situated within the cliffs of Bogota, capital city of Columbia. Actually just opposite of 157 meter tall Tequendama water falls. Salto hotel opened back in 1928 to serve tourist came there for seeing the water falls. From the hotel visitors can also enjoy breathtaking view of surrounding. 1 Maunsell Forts, England Both naval and sea forts became inoperative in the year 1950. Later used for many other activities and left abandoned. Many species of fishes used to live near the fort, as these towers created cover within the sea.

Germany has banned coal mining.
Happening on 21 September in New York and globally, the People's Climate March is on its way to becoming the largest and most diverse mobilization for climate action in history. To show their commitment to protecting people’s climate, a number of Mayors will join the march under the banner, “People’s Climate, Mayors Commit”. This is in line with the vision laid out in the global advocacy of the Local Government Climate Roadmap. The march is set two days before world leaders gather in New York for the Climate Summit called by United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. The Summit is critical to lay the foundations for a new climate treaty that countries are expected to sign in 2015. With the impacts of climate change being felt around the world, with the solutions on the table and with growing momentum behind internationally-coordinated action to fix the crisis, the moment has come to put this issue back on top of the political agenda. Home to half of the world’s population, cities are responsible for 75% of global energy consumption and 40-50% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. They are playing a pivotal role in combating climate change by slashing these GHG emissions, building resilience and promoting sustainable alternatives to transport and energy. They will be central in ensuring that adverse effects of climate change will affect their citizens as little as possible. ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability, the world’s leading cities network, will participate in the People's March along with other 750 organizations, sharing its vision of local sustainability. It will mobilize mayors from around the world who will bring to New York the voices of their citizens. Mayors George Ferguson (Bristol, UK), Herbert Bautista (Quezon City, Philippines), Jürgen Nimptsch (Bonn, Germany), Frank Cownie (Des Moines, USA), Ronan Dantec (Nantes) have confirmed their attendance to the march. Many other local governments support the march. Mayor of Philadelphia Michael Nutter and New York City Council already announced their endorsements supporting the March. Meanwhile, Mayor Gustavo Petro will lead one of the biggest marches in his city of Bogotá, capital of Colombia. Everywhere Mayors are showing their strong commitment to tackle climate change and protect their citizens from its adverse effects. With his clear vision of energy justice and citizen participation, Bristol Mayor George Ferguson led his city to become the European Green Capital for 2015. In Bogotá, the Bus Rapid Transport system called TransMilenio is sparing the city 350,000 tonnes of CO2 per year, reducing air pollution and energy dependence. Seoul, South Korea has reduced its power needs by the equivalent of an average nuclear power plant and is investing in renewables. Its Mayor actively promoted #OccupySeoul, encouraging citizens to take active part in re-shaping the face of Korea's capital. In Bonn, the city is progressing with its plans to cut emissions by 40% and become the cycling capital of its region. On its new online platform, CityTalk, ICLEI tells some of the challenges and stories of success of these cities, showing how mayors are spearheading a diverse movement of local governments with high ambitions, engaging their citizens to be part of a sustainable revolution. Mayors are the closest level of government to citizens. They are deeply grounded in their reality, and are committed to uphold their citizen’s safety, justice and sustainability. CityTalk also features ICLEI’s agenda in New York. Besides engaging in the march, ICLEI is actively involved in nine action-oriented initiatives linked to the upcoming UN summit: Compact of Mayors, City Climate Finance Alliance, arranging bank loans so home owners may buy solar panels. CCAC Municipal Solid Waste Initiative, recycling all waste and selling the minerals, etc = zero waste. Resilient Cities Accelerator Initiative, Carbon Pricing, Buildings Efficiency Accelerator Initiative, Requiring insulation so cities save enough energy to displace one atomic reactor. District Energy Accelerator Initiative, requiring Utilities to pay solar farmers $0.29 kwh for feeding solar onto the grid. and Urban Electric Mobility Vehicles.

The Role of Coal in a New Energy Age - Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming - 2010-04-14 - For the first time in recent memory, the CEOs of America's top two coal mining companies, and a leading international company, came to Capitol Hill to answer questions on their positions on climate change, clean energy policy, and the challenges that face their industry. "Just as our national energy policy is at a crossroads, so, too, is the coal industry," said Rep. Edward J. Markey, who chairs the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, the committee that hosted the CEOs. "Whether it's climate science, the viability of 'clean coal,' or safety concerns, I believe Congress requires answers from the coal industry on their ability to be a part of our clean energy future." As Congress continues to push for a comprehensive clean energy and climate bill, questions remain regarding the coal industry's position on the essential science of climate change and their potential to provide cleaner, lower-carbon fuel in the decades to come. The House-passed Waxman-Markey bill offered a pathway for coal to transition to carbon capture and sequestration technologies. The coal mining industry has seen significant developments over the last two weeks. A mining accident in West Virginia has renewed questions about the safety of coal extraction, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has offered new rules on the environmental and health impacts of mountaintop mining. TESTIMONY: Gregory Boyce, President and Chief Executive Officer, Peabody Energy Corporation; Steven F. Leer, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Arch Coal, Inc.; Preston Chiaro, Chief Executive for Energy and Minerals, Rio Tinto; Michael Carey, President, Ohio Coal Association.

The Third Industrial Revolution: A Radical New Sharing Economy
The global economy is in crisis. The exponential exhaustion of natural resources, declining productivity, slow growth, rising unemployment, and steep inequality, forces us to rethink our economic models. Where do we go from here? In this feature-length documentary, social and economic theorist Jeremy Rifkin lays out a road map to usher in a new economic system. A Third Industrial Revolution is unfolding with the convergence of three pivotal technologies: an ultra-fast 5G communication internet, a renewable energy internet, and a driverless mobility internet, all connected to the Internet of Things embedded across society and the environment. This 21st century smart digital infrastructure is giving rise to a radical new sharing economy that is transforming the way we manage, power and move economic life. But with climate change now ravaging the planet, it needs to happen fast. Change of this magnitude requires political will and a profound ideological shift.

Prof. Mark Maslin: "Climate Change" | Talks at Google
Mark Maslin is Professor of Climatology at University College London and co-author of countless scientific papers, popular articles and books. His areas of scientific expertise include causes of past and future global climate change and its effects on the global carbon cycle, biodiversity, rainforests and human evolution. In this talk, based around his Oxford University Press book "Climate Change: A Very Short Introduction", Maslin provides a compelling introduction into the complex field of climate change for a non-scientific audience. What are its effects, how do we measure them, and how can we predict its development in the coming decades? Limiting warming to no more than two degrees celsius has become the de facto target for global climate policy, so one questions that scientists have to answer is: What changes do policymakers have to implement, and which technologies do we need to develop, that we have the chance to meet this target? Recorded in London, Feb 2017

Humans have 5 years left.
Strategy to reach 350 by 2020. Here is how I feel we in 350.org can lower the air pollution down from 410 ppm today, down to 350 ppm by 2020. I am scared we are about to have a major die-off of humans on the planet by 2020. First, pass a solar feed-in payment policy (FiT) in each city, requiring the Utility to pay home owners and farmers $0.49 kwh for the solar or renewable energy they feed into the grid. This is then sold by the Utility to businesses. It only takes 5 activists in each city to pass a FiT in each city. This will trigger a gold rush of homeowners buying millions of solar panels. This will create millions of jobs for home construction, electricians, carpenters, etc. Next pass a law that requires all new homes to be solar powered. Including buildings remodeled over 50%. This will create international cooperation. The highest quality panels are already being made for US, in China. I call this my 5 year war plan. The goal is to shut down all gas, coal & oil now. Block the KXL pipeline. Ban fracking. So by 2020 we will make a major transition from oil to solar and shut down all nukes. This will require you to sacrifice. You will have to wear down jackets in the house and outside all winter. I have worn down jackets & not used heat most of my life because I am very poor. If I can do it, so can you. I have lived for 50 years in SF without any heat! None! I have lived in Idaho, Montana, Michigan & Illinois without heat. My parents were migrants. Our family of 7, lived in tents, in logging camps in the summer. Yes, my life was hard, but I still live without heat. Ask my wife & kids. Here is the tricky part. Statisticians predict we will have 1 atomic meltdown every 20 years. This gives us a 5 year window from 2014 to 2020 to use nukes. If we take the position we will allow nukes to supply most our energy, plus solar & wind, during that 5 years, while we shut down all oil, gas & coal, we might be able to squeeze the carbon down to 350 ppm by 2020. No one knows. The point of this strategy is to push out gas, coal & oil 100%. We take our chances with nuclear. We oppose any new plants. Scientist James Hansen, NASA, has already enforced this strategy. Germany is leading is whole goal. Germany has shifted from nukes to solar, shutting down 9 nukes since 3-11. Germany will shut down all nukes by 2022. Germany will be 100% solar & renewables by 2041. Japan is doing a COLD TURKEY version of this flip from nukes to solar. Japan passed a solar feed-in tariff payment policy in 2011. Japan then shut down all its nukes in 9-2013, and will never restart them. Japan's goal is to be 100% solar by 2041. We all want Japan to succeed. This goal is inevitable. In the book, "Energy Imperative" by Hermann Scheer, he lays out a great road map of how Germany fought the Utilities, city by city for 10 years, for a FiT and won. Once you read this book, you will feel juiced to do more. Please draft a petition for a FiT for your city. We can do this. Call me if you need help. I will come to your city for a month: Paul, 415-368-8581. See our progress reports on Youtube at: paul8kangas.

After a series of accidents and deaths, Pod City was deemed cursed, and it became a ghost town, albeit a futuristic-looking one. Serving as an unofficial tourist attraction for years, the Sanzhi UFO Houses were finally demolished in 2008. ------------------------------------------------------- Red Sands Sea Forts From a distance, they kind of look like Star Wars AT-ATs marching through water, but these creepy structures were actually forts that the United Kingdom constructed in the River Thames for its army during World War II. Decommissioned in the 1950s, the Red Sands forts became the location of a pirate radio station in the 1960s. The creepy structures remain standing to this day. ------------------------------------------------------- Power Plant IM Power Plant IM, built in Belgium in 1921, was once among the largest coal-burning plants in the country. Unsurprisingly, an environmental report found that it was responsible for more than 10 percent of Belgium's CO2 emissions. This discovery eventually led to the facility's closing in 2007. The abandoned plant now looks like an elaborate set for a Ridley Scott sci-fi flick. ------------------------------------------------------- Shicheng Underwater City Shicheng, aka the Atlantis of the East, is a Chinese city that flooded in 1959 and was then mostly forgotten. In 2001, the Chinese government dispatched an expedition to explore the underwater city. The ruins of Shicheng are surprisingly well-preserved, with some structures dating back more than 400 years. New diving expeditions continue to map out the lost city. ------------------------------------------------------- Mirny Diamond Mine No, it's not a hellmouth. This is actually an inactive mine in Siberia. At 1,722 feet deep and 3,900 feet in diameter, it's the second largest excavated hole on Earth (behind the Bingham Canyon Mine in Salt Lake City). Urban legend has it that airspace above the mine is off-limits to helicopters due to several having been sucked into the pit by powerful downward air flow. ------------------------------------------------------- Gulliver's Travels Park in Japan This theme park, a real-life imagining of Jonathan Swift's fictional tiny town of Lilliput complete with an enormous Lemuel Gulliver statue, would be unusual enough on its own merits. That the surreal park now lies abandoned only heightens its eerie atmosphere. Said photographer Martin Lyle of the park's Gulliver statue, "It was the most amazing and surreal object I have ever seen." ------------------------------------------------------- Orpheum Auditorium The Orpheum Theater in New Bedford, Massachusetts, took two years to construct before its opening night on April 14, 1912 (the same evening the RMS Titanic catastrophically struck an iceberg). The Orpheum operated until the late `50s, when it closed to spend decades falling into a haunting state of disrepair. Now a group called O.R.P.H. Inc. is on a mission to restore the theater. ------------------------------------------------------- Christ of the Abyss "Il Christo Degli Abissi" is actually three statues. Sculptor Guido Galletti crafted the first in 1954. It was placed in the Mediterranean Sea. Later, copies of the statue were created from a mold of the original. One of these was placed off the coast of Key Largo, Florida, in 1965. This American Christ of the Abyss has become a popular tourist attraction for snorkelers and scuba divers. ------------------------------------------------------- Pripyat, Ukraine. The Chernobyl tragedy ruined this Russian city. This booming city became a ghost down following the immediate evacuation of its dwellers. Nothing was taken when the people left as everything was contaminated. So, this town has it all but without the buzz of the people.

The Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor:  What Fusion Wanted To Be
Google Tech Talks November 18, 2008 ABSTRACT Electrical power is, and will increasingly become, the desired form of energy for its convenience, safety, flexibility and applicability. Even future transportation embraces electric cars, trains, and chemical fuel production (jet fuel, hydrogen, etc.) based upon an abundant electrical supply. Although existing energy sources can and should be expanded where practical, no one source has shown to be practical to rapidly fulfill the world's energy requirements effectively. Presently there is an existing source of energy ideally suited to electrical energy production that is not being exploited anywhere in the world today, although its existence and practicality has been know since the earliest days of nuclear science. Thorium is the third source of fission energy and the LFTR is the idealized mechanism to turn this resource into electrical energy. Enough safe, clean energy, globally sustainable for 1000's of years at US standards. This talk is aimed at explaining this thorium energy resource from fundamental physics to today's practical applications. The presentation is sufficient for the non-scientist to grasp the whole subject, but will be intriguing to even classically trained nuclear engineers. By providing the historical context in which the technology was discovered and later developed into a power reactor, the story of thorium's disappearance as an energy source is revealed. But times have changed, and today, thorium energy can be safely exploited in a completely new form of nuclear reactor. The LFTR is unique, having a hot liquid core thus eliminating fuel fabrication costs and the need for a large reactor. It cannot have a nuclear meltdown and is so safe that typical control rods are not required at all. This design topples all the conventional arguments against conventional energy sources in such areas as: * Waste Production * Safety * Proliferation * Capital Costs and Location * Environmental Impact * Social Acceptance * Flexibility * Grid Infrastructure * Efficiency Should America take this step toward a New Era in Nuclear Energy Production? Hear the case for "The Electricity Rock" and then decide. Speaker: Dr. Joe Bonometti Dr. Bonometti has extensive engineering experience in the government, within industry, and in academia over a 25-year career. Recently completing an assignment as the NASA Chair Professor at the Naval Post graduate School, he supported a ship design study that utilized advanced nuclear power derived from thorium. Working at NASA for ten years as a technology manager, lead systems engineer, nuclear specialist, and propulsion researcher, he lead several NASA tiger teams in evaluating the Nuclear System Initiatives fission demonstration vehicle and missions. He managed the Emerging Propulsion Technology Area for in-space systems, the Marshall Air Launch team, as well as a variety of other power and propulsion assignments and is now the Lead Systems Engineer for the Ares I-Y flight. After earning a Doctorate degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Alabama in Huntsville, he spent several years as a Research Scientist & Senior Research Engineer at the UAH Propulsion Research Center where he served as a Principal Investigator and manager for the Solar Thermal Laboratory. He has worked as a Senior Mechanical Designer at Pratt & Whitney supporting aircraft engine manufacturing and at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory within the laser fusion program. A graduate from the United States Military Academy, at West Point, where he studied nuclear physics and engineering, Dr. Bonometti served as an officer in the United States Army Corps of Engineers; both in combat and district engineering management assignments. He is a Registered Professional Engineer in the State of Virginia, and has authored numerous aerospace technical publications, particularly propulsion and space systems technologies. His technical expertise includes nuclear engineering, specialized mechanical & materials research, space plasmas & propulsion, thermodynamics, heat transfer, and space systems engineering.

L'homme et l'énergie, des amants terribles - Jancovici - Septembre 2015
Leçon inaugurale 2015 - ParisTech Diaporama à télécharger : http://fr.slideshare.net/JoelleLeconte/diaporama-confrence-lhomme-et-lnergie-des-amants-terribles-septembre-2015 Jean-Marc Jancovici est ingénieur conseil en énergie et en climat et président du Shift Project. Il a été invité à L’École des Ponts Paris Tech le 7 septembre pour donner une leçon inaugurale. Le thème de l'intervention, "L'homme et l'énergie, des amants terribles" a poussé les étudiants, dès la rentrée, et en cette année de COP, à s'interroger sur notre rapport aux ressources naturelles.

From electric cars to phasing out coal These things can limit global warming to 1.5°C
While the long-term focus is on 2050 or 2100, what matters now is the next ten years. If we miss bending the rising emissions curve downward by around 2020, we may well miss the chance to avoid the worst climate damage. We looked at all the major emitting sectors and the most recent scientific analyses of what can be done – and how fast – to come up with a list of the most important things to do in the next five to ten years to bend the emissions curve Here’s the good news: for all areas, we show signs that a transition of this magnitude is possible. In many cases, it’s already happening. Phasing out coal The scientific literature shows that decarbonising the electric power sector is the most important, fastest and cheapest step, reinforced by rapid reductions in the price of renewable technologies such as wind and solar power. The most important thing to know about the feasibility of reducing CO2 emissions from the power sector to zero by 2050 is this: if we continue the growth rate of wind and solar we’ve seen in the past few years for the next decade globally, we will be well on the way to achieving this goal.

http://ThoriumRemix.com/ Thorium is an abundant material which can be transformed into massive quantities of energy. To do so efficiently requires a very different nuclear reactor than the kind we use today- Not one that uses solid fuel rods, but a reactor in which the fuel is kept in a liquid state. Not one that uses pressurized water as a coolant, but a reactor that uses chemically stable molten salts. Such a reactor is called a "Molten Salt Reactor". Many different configurations are possible. Some of these configurations can harness Thorium very efficiently. This video explores the attributes of Molten Salt Reactors. Why are they compelling? And why do many people (including myself) see them as the only economical way of fully harnessing ALL our nuclear fuels... including Thorium. This video has been under development since 2012. I hope it conveys to you why I personally find Molten Salt Reactors so compelling, as do the many volunteers and supporters who helped create it. Much of the footage was shot by volunteers.

Coal (from the Old English term col, which has meant "mineral of fossilized carbon" since the 13th century) is a combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock usually occurring in rock strata in layers or veins called coal beds or coal seams. The harder forms, such as anthracite coal, can be regarded as metamorphic rock because of later exposure to elevated temperature and pressure. Coal is composed primarily of carbon along with variable quantities of other elements, chiefly hydrogen, sulfur, oxygen, and nitrogen. Throughout history, coal has been used as an energy resource, primarily burned for the production of electricity and/or heat, and is also used for industrial purposes, such as refining metals. A fossil fuel, coal forms when dead plant matter is converted into peat, which in turn is converted into lignite, then sub-bituminous coal, after that bituminous coal, and lastly anthracite. This involves biological and geological processes that take place over a long period. The Energy Information Administration estimates coal reserves at 948×109 short tons (860 Gt). One estimate for resources is 18 000 Gt. This video is targeted to blind users. Attribution: Article text available under CC-BY-SA Creative Commons image source in video

Sol Present - The Solution to Climate Change
We believe that if the worlds primarily source of energy comes from solar energy instead of fossil fuel, partnered along with others environment global initiatives that are taking place such as the reforestation of barren lands, carbon capture storage and the installation of other renewable energy, we can lower the worlds greenhouse gas emissions to almost zero and prevent drastic changes to our global climate. We are a non-profit organization that looks to get a solar power system installation on every feasible rooftop in the world. We want to help anyone who can go solar to go solar including individuals and businesses. Our primary focus is to assist public organizations such as schools, charities, hospitals and community centers go solar in order to help them lower their carbon footprint and be a part of the solution against climate change. 100% of all public donations we receive directly fund public rooftop solar projects. $1 for the earth campaign: ------------------------------------ There is approximately 528 Million People in North America and we would like just $1 from every person on the continent in order to have enough to fund 5,280 rooftop solar projects for public organizations such as schools and hospitals across North America and prevent 1.36 Million Tonnes of CO2/year from being emitted.

"Climate Change and Human Health" Lecture by Howard Frumkin
Brown University March 2, 2018 | 3:00pm | IBES 015 Climate Change has been described as both the biggest public health threat and the biggest public health opportunity of the 21st century. This talk reviews the human health consequences of climate change, and review approaches to protecting people, both through mitigation (or primary prevention) and adaptation (or public health preparedness). It will also consider some “meta” issues such as how to communicate about climate change and how to maintain hope and avoid despair.

Kirk Sorensen discuss "Thorium" at TEDxYYC 2011. Kirk Sorensen is founder of Flibe Energy and is an advocate for nuclear energy based on thorium and liquid-fluoride fuels. For five years he has authored the blog "Energy from Thorium" and helped grow an online community of thousands who support a renewed effort to develop thorium as an energy source. He is a 1999 graduate of Georgia Tech in aerospace engineering and is also a graduate student in nuclear engineering at the University of Tennessee. He has spoken publicly on thorium at the Manchester International Forum in 2009, at NASA's Green Energy Forum in 2008, and in several TechTalks at Google. He has been featured in Wired magazine, Machine Design magazine, the Economist, the UK Guardian and Telegraph newspapers, and on Russia Today. He also taught nuclear engineering at Tennessee Technological University as a guest lecturer. He is active in nonprofit advocacy organizations such as the Thorium Energy Alliance and the International Thorium Energy Organization. He is married and has four small children. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
