Global Warming is Real LENR could be the Solution
US and British government scientists have concluded that climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions are making the Earth warmer and causing extreme weather events like last year’s drought in Texas. In other words global warming is real and we need to do something about it.
The State of Climate Change report prepared by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and its British counterpart noted that 43 indicators followed by scientists showed that the Earth is getting warmer. The same report noted that the past 12 months were the warmest on record in the mainland United States (it should be noted here that record keeping only began in 1895 so there is room for error). In June 2012 alone 170 all time temperature records were broken or tied.
The scientists believe that global warming makes droughts like the one that hit Texas last year 20 times more likely to occur. That means more catastrophic crop losses and more catastrophes like the massive wildfires in my home state of Colorado will occur. Droughts dry out forests which cause wildfires like the massive ones in Colorado. I’ve lived in Colorado all my life and I can’t remember fires like these. When I was a kid you never heard of wildfires in Colorado. How many people’s homes will have to burn before something is done about global warming?
So it’s obvious that we need to get serious about alternatives to fossil fuels such as low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) now. We need to invest more money in LENR research and to give it official support. LENR could produce the large amounts of heat needed to create steam to generate electricity without creating any greenhouse gases. Now that even the European Union admits that Pons and Fleischman were right we need to move beyond childish criticism and launch a serious investigation of this phenomenon.
The emphasis should be on devices that have already been constructed such as the Brillouin Boiler, Andrea Rossi’s eCat, the Defkalion Hyperion and the Jet Energy NANOR. These need to be investigated now to see if they actually work or could be made to work in the near future. Both Andrea Rossi and Brillouin’s Robert Godes claim to have industrial LENR boilers that could replace coal-fired boilers in power plants.
If their claims are true that would eliminate vast amounts of greenhouse gases and significantly reduce global warming. Longer term the use of LENR devices for home heating and water heating could eliminate vast amounts of greenhouse gases. So could the use of LENR devices in other industrial processes such as smelters, chemical plants, oil refineries mines, oil fields and steel mills.
LENR powered turbines could also propel ships and trains which could eliminate vast amounts of greenhouse gases. There is even the possibility of LENR powered steam cars and LENR powered airplanes.
In other words the technology that could put an end to global warming once and for all could be here now. Both government and private industry need to get on the LENR bandwagon now. If we do it might prevent more catastrophes and make the world a better place. If we don’t air conditioning dealers are going to make a fortune in the near future.
