We discuss and comment on the role agriculture will play in the containment of the CO2 problem and address protocols for terraforming the planet Earth.
A model farm template is imagined as the central methodology. A broad range of timely science news and other topics of interest are commented on.

Rossi Reactor Stable at 1000C
is clear is that the Rossi reactor is been steadily advanced.
Particularly the operating temperature is climbing nicely. This was
to be expected and it is been achieved. This all leads to a major
increase in general thermodynamic efficiency.
gaining approval for a retail product is taking much more time is no
surprise whatsoever as the surprise would have been early acceptance
is way more interesting is that they have a strategy in place for
direct energy conversion. This is a big surprise and obviously
hugely important. I presume some details may be forthcoming in the
upcoming September report.
the meantime, Rossi attracts the usual pack of self appointed
naysayers, few of which would ever be allowed in a lab. Anyone can
claim a magic show with zero evidence and be written up simply
because the ignorant need such stories. It is far harder to bang
metal together and change knowledge of the laws of physics as is
find his pronouncements though affected by his weak English to be as
careful as I would expect from a physicist. Thus we can take them
seriously and hope it is possible to turn them into working tools as
soon as possible. And yes it is going to take plenty of time.
Today I sent a few
questions to Andrea Rossi about the progress of his work. Here is the
response, answers are in caps:
Rossi: I am in
Miami and under big pressure, so please excuse me if I answer
1) Many people are
awaiting with great anticipation the report about the high
temperature E-Cats. Can you tell us when we might expect that report
to be published?
2) What is the
importance of this report to Leonardo Corp.?
3) I have read
comments from anonymous sources on the Internet that you have reached
stable temperatures over 1,000C.
a) Is this true?
b) Can you share any
information about these breakthroughs, if they did indeed take place
IN THE REPORT WE
WILL GIVE THIS INFO
c) Can you say
anything about how many kilowatts of output are produced per square
meter of the external surface area of the reactor?
IN THE REPORT
4) Can you elaborate
on the “monumentous” events that you have mentioned took place
recently, that you indicated were as important as October 28, 2011 in
accelerating your work?
5) You recently stated
“The certification for the domestic apparatus will take much more
time.” Do you still think it is realistic to expect domestic E-Cats
to be on the market around the summer of 2013?
WE CANNOT MAKE ANY
COMMENT ON THIS BECAUSE DOES NOT DEPEND ON US
6) Can you say when
the first non-military 1 MW plant will be delivered and in operation?
When will the public know about it?
WITHIN THIS YEAR
7) Have you been
involved in any testing of using E-Cat heat to create electricity
yet? If so, how is progress in that area?
8) In addition to
using steam turbines to create electricity from E-Cat heat, what
other technologies that you know of might be viable for converting
E-Cat heat to electricity?
