Tiny Thorium Reactors Could Wean the World Off Fossil Fuels Within Five Years

One ton of thorium can produce as much energy as 200 tons of uranium and 3.5 million tons of coal.

If Barack Obama were to marshal America’s vast scientific and strategic resources behind a new Manhattan Project, he might reasonably hope to reinvent the global energy landscape and sketch an end to our dependence on fossil fuels within three to five years.  We could then stop arguing about wind mills, deepwater drilling, IPCC hockey sticks, or strategic reliance on the Kremlin.  History will move on fast.

Wind-It: Wind Turbines Using Electrical Transmission Towers

Wind-It: Wind Turbines Using Electrical Transmission Towers

Wind-It

Metropolis Magazine officially announced the winner of their 2009 Next Generation prize! Titled Wind-it, the brilliant project aims to give our existing energy grid a much needed boost by installing wind turbines in ailing electrical transmission towers. The project is designed for France, but creators Nicola Delon, Julien Choppin, and Raphael Menard believe it could be integrated everywhere, from China’s Sichuan Province to the streets of New York City.

Ultra-Dense Fuel Created That May Be The Ultimate Form Of Renewable Energy

Fuel Created That Is ‘More Dense Than The Core Of The Sun’

Ultra-dense deuterium is just as heavy as the sun’s core

It could be the perfect nuclear fuel. It generates energy via laser-enabled fusion. It has no radioactive byproducts. Has a group of Swedish researchers found the ultimate form of renewable energy for the 21st century?
