Union of Concerned Scientists?

Consider specific people in the fusion research community, business, or politics who should be made aware of polywell research, and how we might reach them.

Union of Concerned Scientists?

Postby JoeStrout » Tue Jul 10, 2007 2:28 am

For those who don't know, the is an organization consisting mostly of practicing scientists, who have in common a concern for the environment and a desire for rational solutions to environmental problems (plus a few other issues like scientific integrity). They testify before Congress, prepare talking points for the media, write letters to scientific journals, etc., and generally appear to know people in high places.

They have a keen desire for , but have grave concerns about the . They're currently pushing for greater use of "renewable" energy sources, but I'm sure they recognize that wind and solar won't be able to provide a majority of baseline power needs.

In addition, of course, they're scientists — at least in theory, they should be better equipped than most to tell the real opportunities from the snake oil.

Maybe we should be working to bring the UCS on board. If we can convince them that polywell fusion has potential, they have connections to reach a lot of funding sources and policy makers who could help make it happen.

That sounds a good idea to me, I wonder if there are any other world based groups along similar lines.
