A Swiss team unveiled a new version of their unique solar aircraft Wednesday and is planning to complete their first round-the-world solar flight next year.
Solar Impulse 2 is the successor to Solar Impulse, which completed a trip across the US last year.

Fukushima Mitigation/Remediation Status:
Tokyo Electric Power Co. ("TEPCO"), operator of the wrecked Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power plant, is considering spending about 2.67 trillion yen ($25.6 billion) on strategic investments through partnerships as it seeks to move beyond the Fukushima disaster.
Of the planned investments, the utility known as Tepco plans to borrow 2 trillion yen in fresh loans from lenders, President Naomi Hirose (pictured), 60, said in an interview in…Continue

2016 will be the last opportunity to curb Civilization-induced climate change. That is the last chance to reduce the Atmosphere's carbon dioxide content down to at least 350 parts per million. As we wind on down the road of compulsive consumption, and continue to exceed the Earth's ability to accomodate our carbon waste, there is little doubt in the minds of those NOT in climate change denial of our end-game destiny. Eventually, there won't be enough time nor money to mount a serious effort…Continue

"...And That's How We Do The Fukushima Hokey Pokey!"
For over 1,000 days now, Japan has been trying to handle this on their own. If they had let others become involved their secrets would be revealed. Just recently did…

I have been thinking about the CNG as a motor fuel for some time. Other countries have been running on CNG (or autogas as they call it) for a long time. Yet the US seems to be lagging behind. I am old enough to remember getting gasoline with my dad for 30 cents a gallon as a kid. That was some time ago.
Our energy independence is critical to our financial security. As a nation, we cannot keep sending our wealth to other countries. At this moment, I am more worried about our trade…Continue

During this next month (November 2013), the Japanese will attempt to move the spent fuel rods out of Building Four there at what's left of the Fukushima Nuclear Facility. I believe Building Four is the one you see in this photo. If that attempt fails, and the rods go "critical," Civilization will have…Continue

“ACE” AXIAL COMBUSTION ENGINE
I have designed and have applied for a patent on a new engine concept that has the potential to completely replace the 100 year old, very inefficient piston engine. It works similar to an electric motor. The electric motor has a stator and a rotor. The rotor receives magnetic impulses from the stationary stator that makes the rotor rotate. My engine (Axial Combustion Engine “ACE”) has a stationary casing and…Continue

GrrenCarReports has an article about another hydrocarbon fuel, other than compressed natural gas (CNG), that can be used instead of diesel for large trucks. It is Dimethyl Ether. Like diesel fuel, it can self-ignite when compressed. It requires much lower pressure, 75 psi (comparable to the pressure in a truck or bicycle tire), than CNG (3600 psi). It can be formed from natural gas (a boon for Pickens) and also from biomass. (I hope this means it can also be made from garbage.) It is…Continue

After attending a meeting I was made aware of the danger of a Electromagnetic Power outage either by an enemy attack or catastrophic weather. It seems that all the systems we are converting to no longer protect us from a total shutdown and in the case of an attack or direct hit, it would wipe out our ability to get it back on line in time to save millions who would be without power; leaving huge blackouts across the US. We've experience others in the past but my understanding is that the…Continue

What about Gull Island? There was oil found there years ago. Government classified it within 24 hours after its find. Read the book The Non Energy Crisis by Lindsey Williams. Its going to also inform you about the Trans Atlantic Pipeline. This is much more that Boone is telling you about.
