The BEC Crew report that just last week, we reported that the German revolutionary nuclear fusion machine managed to heat hydrogen gas to 80 million degrees Celsius, and sustain a cloud of hydrogen plasma for a quarter of a second. This was a huge milestone in the decades-long pursuit of controlled nuclear fusion, because if we can produce and hold onto hydrogen plasma for a certain period, we can harness the clean, practically limitless energy that fuels our Sun.

Now physicists in China have announced that their own nuclear fusion machine, called the Experimental Advanced Supercond... More →

Gulf Coast Countries are seeing the largest gaps between renewable water supplies and demand. Currently Bahrain uses 220 percent of its renewable water reserves vs. 943 percent for the Saudi Kingdom and 2,465 percent for Kuwait.

The Kingdom has not rivers or lakes and therefore, water demand from groundwater is 98% with the remaining percentage from desalination plants. Of that 98%, 95% is utilized for industrial and human consumption.

Andrew Topf reports that the U.S. earned less from its mines in 2015 and became more reliant on outside sources for critical metals, according to a new report from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

The data comes from statistics gathered by the USGS on about 90 mineral commodities considered essential for the U.S. economy and national security. Concerns have been raised for years that the U.S. is too dependent on other countries, namely China, for rare-earth elements deemed essential for its aerospace and electronics industries, leading to suggestions that the U.S. create a strateg...

Rod Adams reports that Third Way bills itself as a centrist think tank that is not satisfied with just thinking; they take action that gets results. The Jan 27th Advanced Nuclear Summit and Showcase provided an excellent example of the Third Way ability to seek common ground among people from both major political parties in the U.S.

The event provided the opportunity for speakers from a variety of points around the middle of the political spectrum to share their thoughts about the importance of advanced nuclear technologies and their personal reasons for joining the growing chorus o... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Other, RTGs, Thorium, Helium-3 and Fusion Research

Stuart Gary reports that clean, cheap nuclear energy is often touted as a means to battle climate change. But how close are we to having nuclear plants that fit the clean, green bill? What are the different technologies and what do they offer?

More than 10% of the world electricity currently comes from nuclear power plants. These existing plants all rely on nuclear fission, a chain reaction where uranium atoms are split to release extraordinary amounts of energy and, unfortunately, high levels of radioactive waste (that are stored safely on site). But a different type of nuclear rea... More →

Andrew Follett reports that academics and activists worried about global warming are begging California Gov. Jerry Brown to save the last nuclear power plant in the state. The group argues California can not meet its global warming goals without the plant, but the push to save it may spark conflict with environmentalists (aka adversaries) who have opposed nuclear power for years.

They were writing as scientists, conservationists, and philanthropists to urge you to do everything in your powers to ensure that California last nuclear power plant, Diablo Canyon Power Plant, is relicense... More →

Index / Conventional Oil & Gas Resources / Economics

Leanne Miller reports that closely followed market watcher Dennis Gartman says billionaire Boone Pickens prediction that the bottom is in for oil is off base.

It is a supply circumstance. You can see it in the term structure of the futures market on Friday, when you had a strong rally, the back months led the way up, Gartman told CNBC Fast Money traders on Monday. That is not how bull markets function, that is how bear markets function, and I think Mr. Pickens, a hero of mine, is wrong.

Pickens, who built Mesa Petroleum into a powerhouse and founded BP Capital Management,... More →

In the aftermath of the attack on Pearl Harbor, America launched the Doolittle Raids on Tokyo. While the actual bombing raids had little impact Japan, it was considered a significant moral victory as it demonstrated that the US could directly attack Tokyo.

In the years following the Doolittle raids, mysterious balloon bombs began decending across the western US, Canada, and Mexico. One such device landed just outside Detroit, and in March 1945, one landed at the Handford site where the Manhatten Project research was ongoing.

While the US government kept tight control ... More →

Clive Cookson reports that the Luxembourg government announced this week that it will promote a commercial asteroid mining industry astonished even seasoned space industry observers. He opines that doubters, like himself, had many questions. Is it feasible to extract materials from asteroids, rock and ice hundreds of millions of miles away, and process them into useful products and commodities? If so, can anyone make money out of it? And even if the economics stack up, why should little Luxembourg be involved?

Further consideration and conversations with the project promoters are be... More →
