I'd guess this is a long ways off still, but the technology seems like a gift from heaven.


The discovery was made almost by accident, when Yao noticed devices he was experimenting with were conducting electricity seemingly all by themselves.

"I saw that when the nanowires were contacted with electrodes in a specific way the devices generated a current," Yao says.

They'll either sell their knowledge to the fossil fuel industry or we'll never hear from them again.
I'd be more worried about big wind blowing this under covers.

Go green. Wait until fuel is produced from algae in mass. We will see it in the next 10 years in some shape or form.

I don't really dislike hot humid summers, and now there could be a use for them as far as generating electricity? Sounds good.

Now, if there might be a use to these cold, wet, flu-infested mid-Atlantic winters, then I'm really all in. This winter has been one enormous blowfest weather wise with worse than usual flu and upper respiratory infections. As usual, it sucks from December thru March.

At first glance, Singapore appears to have gotten control of the virus, only 3 new cases today. Take a deeper look and there is likely a much bigger problem brewing as 9 cases in Singapore can't be tracked to any known transmission chains. It will be interesting to see if they have a sudden explosion of cases like South Korea, Italy and Iran in about a week.
I think you've become wayward. This is the energy from humidity thread, not the death-by-coronavirus thread :hihi:
