Re: Dr. Park to speak at UW-Madison

The US government spends about $2 bn a year to get the answers it wants on global warming. Think of how far that would go if spent on Polywell. Point well taken; and they waste WAY more than $2 bn a year on various approaches to the alleged mitigation of global warming - approaches which are either...

Re: Dr. Park to speak at UW-Madison

Go to aneutronics.org and download "Aneutronics: to Slow the Rising Tide". Turn to Chapter 2. Carefully study each graph in sequence. Read the Chapter. Ya know I object to...the very first page... Analysis: Solar activity & ocean cycles are the 2 primary drivers of climate, not CO2 Re...

Re: Dr. Park to speak at UW-Madison

We desperately need working commercial sized Polywells -or some comparable fusion devices- taking the place of fossil fuels on the grid. There really is no need to panic. We have hundreds of years of fossil fuels available. Go to aneutronics.org and download "Aneutronics: to Slow the Rising Ti...

Re: Dr. Park to speak at UW-Madison

Seeing that LPP had problems getting even 200k via crowd funding, I have no hope that this will work. I recently saw a really good speech by Jeff Greason from XCOR (who I admire for a lot of reasons) about how congress decides on their funding for the space program. It is a really good explanation ...

Re: Dr. Park to speak at UW-Madison

Washington does not work like you think: They are idiots with power, funded by crooks. You may be surprised to know that I agree with you in part: in Washington there are many shortsighted people (who do indeed look like idiots) who have indeed been bought by crooks. But - to restate - it is to Dr....

Re: Dr. Park to speak at UW-Madison

This is the time to be trying to get Dr. Park the money he needs. Isn't this something we can all agree to? I am doing my best to get congress to add a separate $40 million Polywell line item to the 2015 Energy budget: I am trying to get Dr. Park the money he needs for his next step, in a way that s...

The goal of the AGW cult is not to reduce CO2 emissions but to extract money more effectively than ever before...Biofuels were shoot down. Nuclear is destroyed with propaganda and regulations.

By the time we replace all the US fossil fuel sources of electricity with Polywells it WILL be massively expensive.

Re: Dr. Park to speak at UW-Madison

I just got word from a reliable source that US Congressman Rick Larsen's Congressional Correspondent, Mike Renniger (Sp?) has said that in response to some constituent emails, he will be looking into references relating to the Polywell. Interestingly, he said the subject is one in which he has had s...

Re: Dr. Park to speak at UW-Madison

Today I spoke with Alex Fastle, one of Senator Patty Murray's staffers. She says the Navy let the EMC2 Polywell contract lapse because Navy was seriously short of dollars and had to cut somewhere. Period. Which suggests that ONR's previous explanation is at least partly BS. What follows is my respon...

Re: Dr. Park to speak at UW-Madison

More subtle political pressure may loosen the purse-strings at the Navy again, but already I hear rumors of key people at the Office of Naval Research that find the Polywell still too speculative - it won't be ready to power a destroyer on their watch, so they want lower-hanging fruit. Two of my Co...

Tell Congress to Fund Polywell though Energy Department

I called this "Plan B" in another thread. (Plan A being EMC2's search for $30 million in VC over 3 years.) I suggested -on the advice of someone who seemed to know- that Dr. Park might really want $40 million, but he might be minimizing his request to attract investors. Anyway, for those o...

Re: Dr. Park to speak at UW-Madison

Isn't it just better to let Dr. Park decide what he needs to do for a path and resourcing instead of flailing about numbers and calendars for him? Yes. I am not trying to second guess his VC pathway. But maybe there should be a plan B (Energy Dept) in case the VC pathway doesn't work out; and I do ...

Re: Dr. Park to speak at UW-Madison

From someone who knows considerably more than me about the topic, a few suggested amendments to my previous post: DoE is not in charge of the funding. Congress is. NOW is when Congress is negotiating the Energy budget in both the Senate and House. NOW -while Dr Park is looking for support- is the ti...

Re: Dr. Park to speak at UW-Madison

As long as it is not known which fusion concept will be the best in the end, one should fund all promising concepts, but unfortunately this is not what the DoE is doing. But DoE is not in charge of the funding. Congress is. Apparently NOW is when Congress is negotiating the Energy budget in both th...
