The driver should have applied the principle painted on the sign on his truck to this journey!
No matter how abundant or renewable, solar power has a thorn in its side. There is still no cheap and efficient long-term storage for the energy that it generates.
The solar industry has been snagged on this branch for a while, but in the past year alone, a series of four papers has ushered in an intriguing new solution.
Scientists in Sweden have developed a specialised fluid, called a solar thermal fuel, that can store energy from the sun for well over a decade.
“A solar thermal fuel is like a rechargeable battery, but instead of electricity, you put sunlight in and get heat out, triggered on demand,” Jeffrey Grossman, an engineer works with these materials at MIT explained to NBC News.
The fluid is actually a molecule in liquid form that scientists from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden have been working on improving for over a year.
This molecule is composed of carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen, and when it is hit by sunlight, it does something unusual: the bonds between its atoms are rearranged and it turns into an energised new version of itself, called an isomer.
Like prey caught in a trap, energy from the sun is thus captured between the isomer’s strong chemical bonds, and it stays there even when the molecule cools down to room temperature.
The NSW government are at best, criminally incompetent, at worst, guitly of manslaughter by mismanagement and neglect! Cutting $68 million from the Fire Services budget while spending $2 billion on a sports stadium is such an altered priority it is obscene!
Environmental catastrophe, ecological genocide and species suicide.
Please remeber this come next state and federal elections!
Labour, Liberal, Nationals and Greens do not have our best interests at heart! Pick the best ndependent candidate you can find with whose policies you agree and who has a good track record of managing people and projects for optimal outcomes.
Obsidian is dense volcanic glass, usually rhyolite in composition and typically black in color. Obsidian with multicolored iridescence caused by inclusions of magnetite nanoparticles. Obsidian is often formed in rhyolite lava flows where the lava cools so fast that crystals do not have time to grow.
I have been concerned over the introduction of compulsory vaccination in the Maldives, Somoa and several US States. Knowing that always the wrong thing to do about anything is nothing, I put together 9 pages of data and links and a one page medical waiver (that I strongly suspect no doctor will ever sign) that I make available to you to use as you wish:
I am interested to hear your fedback on the document, how you would use it and any results you get from its use.
John White commented: Lol the article makes no sense as it contradicts itself.
Babies getting measles at a young age when they are susceptible (because their mothers were vaccinated instead of contracting the infection naturally), but then toddlers need to be vaccinated. The vaccine was the problem to begin with which they admit!
Tom: Yeah, the ability to think is not strong in that reporter. Or the pHarMedical racket. The have a stable datum (vaccines are safe and effective, everyone must have them) past which they cannot think with contrary data. This is why the insanity persists. All evidence that bumps up against the stable datum is rejected because it does not agree with their stable datum.
The medical industry, in collusion with Big Pharma, has been over-prescribing antibiotics for years, resulting in new strains of superbugs that are difficult to kill. In point of fact, it’s not at all improper to suggest that at some point in the future, our overuse of antibiotics may result in bacteria evolving to the point where nothing on earth can kill it.
Long before today’s antibiotics were developed in labs, however, there were foods and herbs that helped us guard against infection and disease on a daily basis. Indeed, many of these natural anti-bacterial defenders are still around today, and are in use by holistic healers around the world.
Something is causing the waters just off the west coast to heat up dramatically, fish are dying off in staggering numbers, birds that feed on those fish are also dying off rapidly, and scientists have discovered 15,000 holes in the ocean floor off the coast of California.
Your biological age can provide a good clue about your longevity, far more so than your chronological age. Your biological age refers to the state of your cells — they can be younger or older than your calendar age, which means you’re aging slower or faster than expected.
Environmental exposures have a lot to do with biological or cellular aging and, according to a December 2019 study1,2 published in The Journals of Gerontology, lead, mercury and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) are the three toxins shown to have the greatest impact on your life span.
While glyphosate was not included in this study, my guess is it would probably be a top contender as well, considering it disrupts normal body functions, especially your gut, and appears to enhance the damaging effects of other toxins.
According to Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., a research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, glyphosate worsens virtually all modern diseases which, of course, will shorten your life. That said, lead, mercury and PFOS have repeatedly been identified as significant contributors to chronic ill health and are certainly among the most pervasive and concerning toxins out there.
A great gif for kids!
