Though it may be BS




I'm all for efficiency and cost cutting, who wouldn't be ? This Particle Accelerator cutting idea sounds good, I guess time will tell here but if they don't crack it someone else will.

Agree with you though Snowy it does sounds a little like BS. Would be very happy to be proven wrong  Smiley

That gave me a great deal of hope and anticipation. Thanks, Data! thumbsup

It's amazing what humans can achieve when someone has a good idea and they work together, this video of floating wind turbines actually brought a tier to my eye, in a good way.

Just plonking the first fully charged vid of 2018 in here, it's mostly about power generation.

Found this vid that puts a limit on where batteries can go.



It's referencing this vid...

Thunderf00t has had a hell of a lot of negative feedback from that video, seriously he seems so pessimistic these days that I stopped watching his vids a while ago.

Batteries will improve that's for sure.

Read some of the videos comments. Going to leave it at that.

An interesting development, probably a lot of people trying to make some improvement to what we already have and sooner or latter it will happen.

Yes agreed Carl.

In fact this is already happening especially in EV batteries where the development is being taken very seriously, the new Leaf for example has a battery the same physical size as the first gen car but has almost double the capacity. They have gone from 24kWh to 40kWh, next year a 60kWh version is being released.

In the video Thunderf00t claimed that a battery in an EV can only go 1/3 the distance of a petrol car, he is already living in the past, An 85kWh Tesla can already do more than 200 miles, I don't know many petrol powered cars that can do 600 miles on a tank of fuel. Soon 400 mile range EV's will be coming.

Thunderf00t also mentioned that the batteries take up more space and weigh more than a gas tank but forgot to mention the weight of the engine/gearbox in an ICE vehicle.

He does like to play with Science and is quite good at it but knows little about EV's or batteries, that is clear from his comments.

Will they ever make a perfect battery ? of course not, nothing is perfect apart from cats  Cheesy

  My cat is far from perfect, sometimes I think she does things she shouldn't to get my attention.  So Tesla has a big Battery plant he's put in, more than likely he'll have a research division, with a good staff we should be able to get better batteries although right now we seem to have the range we need. The more the batteries are used the more data you have on them to find problems and make improvements.  I think we are just at he beginning.  I'm already impressed about the lead acid batteries and how much they have improved over the years but it took time.

Great video again from Fully Charged  thumbsup

The bit at the beginning with all EV's on the road, a glimpse in to the future, fantastic.

So much renewable energy why not use the leftover to make hydrogen, again great idea.

A positive and clean future is within our grasp, if we believe and I do truly believe  Smiley

I'm afraid that we Yanks might be at least one of many that could prove that false, though I pray I'm wrong. The major laggards will likely be us, Russia and friends, and China. Possibly India, too, but that remains to be seen. Granted, we have 82 years in which to accomplish a fully renewable future, but there are a lot of countries that are as hidebound and recalcitrant as you can get. sign-sad

Still, I'm rooting for us all. Smiley

Very interesting.
Even all cars being EV doesn't make much of a dent to their oil burning but I like the way they're bootstrapping the tech to get the boats (and presumably the trucks and home heating) to be HFC/EV. You can't do everything in one step unless you invest more ££$$, make economic sense to do it the way they are.

I've heard our biggest threat is from over population from one of the great thinkers.  Actually if the population today was much less burning of these filthy things wouldn't be causing the problems we now have.
