Nuclear Fission and the #Parisagreement

Do you remember hearing about those Global Climate Change talks that were going on in Paris[France]? Well they just agreed on something so monumental it could affect the outcome of the very planet upon which we call home.

196 countries have agreed to a part-legal/part-voluntary agreement to:

  1. To peak greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible and achieve a balance between sources and sinks of greenhouse gases in the second half of this century.
  2. To keep global temperature increase “well below” 2C (3.6F) and to pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5C.
  3. To review progress every five years.
  4. $100 billion a year in climate finance for developing countries by 2020, with a commitment to further finance in the future.

Nuclear Fusion aka how the sun creates its energy!

That’s some pretty awesome stuff right there folks! Why not check out this link to the BBC’s footage…

This is a pretty historic day. So forget everything you’re doing right now and follow that link!

Climate Change not your thing? Well, simply put, Tough luck. Because on the very same day the above #Parisagreement was set something arguably magical happened…

Nuclear Fusion. That’s right folks; the holy grail for those that seek clean and limitless energy [that would be most of us then].

Mastering this almost sci-fi source of energy would mean the end of our planet consuming reliance on fossil fuels – and how amazing would that be?

Whilst we have been able to initiate nuclear fusion before yeterdays experiment, it’s always cost more energy to create the reaction than the energy received from it.

However scientists in Germany heated helium gas with a laser until it reached 1million degrees centigrade and thus created a nuclear fission reaction. It only lasted 1/10 of a second but it was merely to prove that the new style of reactor could work. After more tests in the near future, the idea is that these new style reactors could sustain nuclear fusion for up to 30 minutes. Which is a little bit longer than the current record of a mre 6.5minutes.

If successful this reactor could pave the way for a greater understanding and eventually a proficient understanding of how nuclear fusion works and how it can be used for the benefit of not only the entire human race but the entire planet!

People tend to remember the terrible days in our history; the two world wars, Hiroshima & Nagasaki, the cuban missile crisis, 9/11 and or course the most recent tragic events in Paris. But days like yesterday, days where the leaders of governments of nearly 200 countries agree on an actual responsible plan to secure the planet for generations to come as well as the monumental steps taken towards sustainable clean energy, are days we should treasure and remember as potential turning points in our soon to be history…

Here’s a link to an interesting report on the Germany experiment and even a lengthy video showing the experiment and the immediate reactions of those in attendance…
