We conducted an audit of Chapter 8 of the IPCC’s WG1 Report. We found enough information to make judgments on 89 out of the total of 140 principles. The forecasting procedures that were used violated 72 principles. Many of the violations were, by themselves, critical. We have been unable to identif...

The answer to neutrons is ITER will generate 1,000 times as many for the same power output. Also, medical neutron generators using IEF or similar processes (not running at breakeven) are used all the time. If they are not already posing a threat as a source of neutrons for enrichment, how would the...

Hi drmike,

fusion.pdf looks good. I'm a programmer (well, an EE), not a physicist, so I'm reading it to understand the program, not checking the physics or math. But I did notice: permeability is misspelled permiability on page 1, if you find that helpful.

Well, controlling Uranium/Plutonium refining is something. It takes a large, specialized plant to get it up to even the lowest weapon grade. Although, shipping refined uranium from anywhere it is already being made throws that out the window, in my opinion. It's too easy to bribe somebody to pilfer ...

MSimon, If mass is energy in the "other manifold" then it makes perfect sense that it travels close to the speed of light (relativistic speeds), like energy in our three dimensions travels at relativistic speeds. However, I think the "other" 3 dimensions you describe would seem -- by some person who...

I didn't see a response to the question. Bump. Are they using for that comparison the WB-5 results or those obtained with WB-6? For Polywell they use as latest experimental results: n =10^14 (1/cc) tau = 2.3·10^(-7) s. T = 10^5 eV n·tau = 2.3·10^7 n·tau·T= 2.3·10^12 Neutrons = 10^5 --> this data see...
