93 - on the need for nuclear energy

Dear Reader,

In case this is not clear - let me say this again.

If there is any truth to any of the results that we're exposing from this simplest of simple circuits - then there is no question that our households can unplug from our grid suppliers. And that really soon. We just need to scale this highly scalable technology and learn to establish the required resonance in the switching circuitry.

Alternatively - it may be possible to run these applications through the grid - provided only that the grid supplier can credit us with all that returning energy. Either way - we're looking at a possible contender to nuclear energy. At it's least it seems that our dependence on this supply source can be lessened. If for no other reason - this technology needs thorough exploration. There is nothing safe or desirable in the short or long term effects of nuclear supply. It is toxic and hazardous and will not contribute to the long term benefits of our species. Not unless we learn how to deal with all that waste which absolutely will poison our planet.

And we are only just uncovering some of this potential. Who knows where it may lead. But there may be a real and vested interest in denying these results. And I'm reasonably satisfied that the over-reaction of Mookie et al - is a reflection of this concern. Why should I be barred from ever approaching UWC? Because I had the temerity to ask them to attend a demonstration? That's a bit odd. More than a little bit disproportionate. We showed what we undertook to demonstrate. It was not wasted time. And I have not asked them for money. I haven't even asked them for recognition. Why the need to say that CPUT required the disclaimer? Why the distortion to the numbers in attendance? Why the reference to 'mere students' and a handful at that? All lies. Why?

I just wanted them to address the same questions - and do their own research. Our own country is looking to increase its nuclear dependence - in the near future. Could this distancing - this need to make me a pariah - be part of that strategy? I certainly hope not. It's unfortunate co-incidence that the expert in question here is also a nuclear physicist.

Kindest regards,
Rosemary.
