    -
    Nathan Nakamichi - LOOOONG technical letter - ??????? *** see FYI bottom of pg . . .
    http://www.change.org/petitions/replace-uranium-nuclear-energy-with-safe-green-cheaper-thorium-plasma-battery-technology-2 
    This is over my head at the moment - (and looks like it is over most everyone else's heads too LOL!) . . . 

    But I don't have enough info or understanding of this to indicate that it is definitely the way to go ---  for one thing, it requires MORE MINING (ick!) --- and common sense says that we need to invest resources and time and energy and thought into Generating Energy WITHOUT BURNING anything.  But then I really don't understand the technology being presented here - I mean, something has to CHARGE a thorium battery, RIGHT? . . . or is the Thorium itself the "charge"?

    I agree with everything here except "microalgae fuel" because the EARTH needs its biological stuff to regenerate the fertility of the land, rather than dirtying up the air LIFE breathes.
    Burning ANYTHING creates atmospheric by-products of CO2 & CO  (along with a lot of other things we shouldn't be breathing, depending on what is burned).

    I cannot honestly sign this one without being able to make a comment that goes directly to the target(s).
    It's not "low carbon" because it takes COAL (or some other high heat energy source) to PROCESS the "FUEL" - as well as all the high carbon impact of mining and shipping - among other things . . . I am hearing more about the Thorium alternative - we should LOOK at THAT too.
    No it is not "green" but it would be a good TRANSITIONAL "fuel" while we continue to try to enlighten "our" wayward so-called govt and "global [mis]managers" . . .
    Please excuse, I am not in a "nice" mood today - and at the moment, I am NOT happy that I cannot send a comment to the targets when I sign petitions anymore here.

Force and intimidation are signs that we are being heard even if/when snail-paced bureaucracy is still too muddled in "cognitive dissonance" of severe denial complexes to act with integrity YET.
When the PTB use force and intimidation is the time to holler louder than ever.

I find it important to remember:
"There are only two emotions, Love and Fear. What is not an expression of one is an expression of the other."
♥ The PTB are terrified of the masses, otherwise there would be no need for all the fabricated baloney out there for mainstream consumption.
♥ They are even more terrified of those who think for themselves and say what they think.
♥ The PTB are terrified because, deep down inside, they know they are not acting with integrity.
"False face doth hide what false heart doth know." ~ MacBeth, Shakespeare
"Forgive your enemies, (it messes with their heads)." ,`; ~ )

Getting to the heart of a matter is a different ball of wax, made all the more complex by all the secrets and mis-info, hidden agendas and blocked communications, but not impossible.
"The people are going to know."
(I THINK that is from one of the Airforce I flicks?)


I always figure that there are ways AROUND and THRU the system, esp when people maintain solidarity and don't leave those who go out on a limb for the sake of everyone to then "hang" alone without public support.

The critical mass ratio is staggeringly extreme, it takes relatively infinitesimally small percentages of people to seed the collective conscious.
