Hello,

The MIT Center for Collective Intelligence is accepting plans for solutions to the climate crisis.

Last year Dennis Petersen a heck of a good job getting Fusion into the mix. He did focus fusion, Polywells, RFC and Pinchs.

We all came out and voted and - we won. Why? Because fusion could have a BIG impact on fossil fuel use.

In November, Eric Lerner and polywell fans descended on Boston for the conference.

It was cool to see Dennis, sitting next to people like Dr. Jay Kesner.

The Contest Ends on Sunday.

never mind climatologist consensus. It doesn´t matter if there is or there is not a climate crysis. What important is that the solutions for a climate crysis result in a better, cleaner world.

China doesn´t need a climate crysis to decide they must focus on clearner energy. They have a pollution crysis that is more urgent than the climate crysis.

as long as it allows investment in solar and nuclear techs, I support any climate crysis. Even if it´s a little ice age... after all, if there is really a little ice age coming (data indicates otherwise), we will need plenty of energy to heat everything on high latitudes!

My entry suggestion would be an older style coal fired plant without scrubbers. We desperately need all that soot and ash to cover the growing ice sheets before another ice age takes hold.

The daylight is uncomfortably bright for eyes so long in the dark.

Its only in the mid 90s here in Austin TX this July. Its also been raining more, later in the year than it has the last few years (usually the 'spring' storms are done by early june and they didn't seem to start until late may this year).

Might be cooler here in the US, but it is a lot warmer on the other side of the globe...

Each El Nino has a multi-stage effect and a very large one is now underway.

I expect much postimg in this and similar threads during the current stage... not so much when the other shoes start dropping.

I wouldn't get too excited about El Nino.



Seriously, Polywell would be the best entry, because abundant cheap fusion reactors will offer the best chance for humanity to survive the coming ice age, we could afford to grow our food underground hydroponically and not worry about climate.
