Power Generation

Covid-19 - Climate Change - Fossil Fuels 

And - Power Generation

Electricity & Climate Change

Ok! They are all linked!

From the time I was a little boy  growing up in London just after WW-2, All the adults knew that the Industrial Revolution had caused many health problems, not only for the Young boys, like me, but in Earlier times, who had been the Chimney Sweeps (Child Slave Labourers), but also the Coal Miners and the Elderly that had died from Lung Disease!... 

Yes! The Government knew Then as Now, that both Coal Dust in The Mines and The Small Particles in the Smoke from burning Coal KILLED People!... This was Confirmed with the Massive Kill Off of the Elderly in the Early 1950’s with “The Smog” in London and other Cities!...

That was The Start of the Clean Up in London with the Introduction of Smokeless Fuels… Good Clean Coal!.. Humph! And New Advanced, Efficient, Sealed, adjustable Combustion Rate Fires; we had a Courtier: One for Every home!...

They Knew!... As They Knew, (They being The Government!) about Lung Cancer coming from Cigarette Smoking!...

There were adverts in all the Public Transport Buses, that we kids travelled on going to and from School everyday!...

Big Red Double Deckers with Big Pictures of Ashtrays full to overflowing with Cigarette Butts, with BIG LARGE LETTERS proclaiming SMOKING Causes LUNG CANCER!

When it was full on the lower deck, we had to ride upstairs. In those days adults could smoke upstairs!... We often could not see the front of the bus because of the thick smelly smoke!... All the Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen back from the War, most with some form of “Shell Shock” or to use the modern terminology “PTSD”…

We know what happened then, Don’t We!!... Same as Now!!... The Right Wing Think Tanks decrying and Denying the Science with their own ... "Pseudo Scientists" ... Like the "Pseudo" or "Commercial Artists", working in The Advertising Industry!... Only We Know They are Bullshit Artists!... They at least proclaim with the Word Comercial" that they have Sold Out!.... Not So The "Pseudo Scientists"... They are Purely Corrupted Liars! They have Sold Their Souls to the Highest Bidders!... AND... We All Know where The Money is.. Don't We?

 

Well it’s the Same Story Now with Big Coal, Big Oil, Big Gas, 0nly Now it’s Big Pharma instead of The Tobacco Industry: How Ironic is That??!!...

 

It’s hard to know where to start on this story; but I think Michael Moore’s New Documentary “Planet of The Humans” gets the Picture across far better than I ever could!

Well!!!....... 

For those that have been following the Saga of The Pre-Release of "Planet of The Humans"... and The YouTube take Down... Instead of Having The Link To The Movie directly Below; I have Pasted The video of The Rolling Stone Interview with Michael Moore.

I will put The Actual Movie Up Below that Interview; using the "Fair Use" Copyrite rule and the Permision from The Owners to use it on my own Website.

Planet of The Humans will be shown Below The Rolling Stone Interview, which is very informative in its own right!

After the Video Below, I have included some Graphs which also help to clearly show some of the Points made without the Data, in the Documentary; A sort of “Back-Up” if you like!...

On with The Motley!

Well at long last an abreviated version of "Planet of The Humans has been made available..

Anyway, here is a release of some parts of the Movie that are obviously Free of any Copywrite Challenged Material that gets the message across...

The section from 1:14:00 forward to the end is a pretty good Indictment!


I hope that everyone can Learn and Take appropriate Action from seeing the Truth in This Video!


Imagine The Finalisation of The MSR Thorium - LFTR, and How many Small Modular Reactors that could be built to Replace All Fossil Fuels, and Start taking CO2 Out of The Atmosphere, also making Carbon Neutral Fuels from some of The Carbon regained from that CO2, and De-Salinating Sea Water (and possibly some mineral rich Bore Water!) 

To Put Back into Agriculturally Depleted River Systems... 

But Also Making Our Lifestyles Much More Sustainable by Making Industrially Produced Items last as Long as They Used to in My Youth!... 


A Lot to do in The Next 30 Years...

…. We Can Do it!...

…….We Must Do It!...  And Blood and Gore's 40 to 50 TRILLION US Dollars Will Go a Long Way towards accomplishing That Objective!


Now we will see why the introduction of the Solar PV and Wind Power and other Renewables is just not cutting it!

It is obvious from the Graph of Energy Use in the USA, below, that so far, the builds of Solar, Wind and other Renewables has only managed to maintain a small percentage of the Total Power Usage per annum of about 10% to 15% of the Total Power Used… Sure it has increased its overall Areas of land covered with Solar Panels and Number of Units of Wind Generators, but not made or shown any substantial ability to Replace Coal Or Nuclear… And because it cannot match the Energy Density of Coal or Nuclear, Nor The Cost To Build per TW produced; could it ever do so Economically or efficiently!... 


See The Two Graphs Below, and Note Other Countries are Similar, and also Note That Most of the Developed Countries have Off-Shored most of their Heavy Industrial Energy Requirements to Low Wage and Low Environmentally Controlled Nations Like China… Also Note That This Graph of Energy Use in The USA Does NOT include Transport Power produced by Petroleum Products or Gas; and if Fossil Fueled Transport is to be Replaced by Rlectric Powered Vehicles, and it has been shown that  approximately an Additional 25% of Electric Power will have to be produced to charge and recharge the Batteries, in order to replace The Fossil Fuel Petroleum Products and Gas!


Material Required to Build Different Types of Clean Green Power Generation per Terra Watt of Power Produced.

Material Required to Build Clean Green Power Generation per Terra Watt of Power Produced


Why Burning Wood is Not a Solution to either The Climate Change Problem OR The Power Generation required .... I mean why Burn a fuel that has less energy per kg which; in its natural Form, prior to being cut down or harvested, actually removes CO2 From The Atmosphere as well!!

.... Very Clever action and Investment by our GREEN Environmental Leaders!!... Ho! Hum!



Now We will see what could be achieved Using  Molten Salt - Thorium LFTR Fail Safe Reactors ...


And just to Make the Point about the Wasted Power in The Conventional Nuclear Power Generation .... The Pressurised Water Reactor (PWR) .... OR Why sSo much Fuel in Their Fuel Rods is "Wasted"...

Here is a Table of The "BURN" of The PWR vs The Thorium LFTR...


And Now the Real Picture of Deaths Caused By Conventional "Fossil Fuels" :-

------------------  What The Medical Profession has to say!  --------------------------

The Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change – 2017 report

The 2017 report shows that climate change is already a critical public health issue. While the delayed response to climate change over the past two decades has jeopardised human life and livelihoods, the past 5 years have seen an accelerated response, with momentum building across many sectors. Tackling climate change has clear and unprecedented opportunities to improve public health.

Here are some infographics on The Lancet Report above…

And Now, just to highlight Why The System of Taking The Opportunity Presented By The Threats is Failing .... 

Or Put in More conventional Form.... We Have :-
