New energy source: Blacklight announces sustained production of enormous electrical power from water plasma

New energy source: Blacklight announces sustained production of enormous electrical power from water plasma | Green Business | Scoop.it

BlackLight Power, Inc. today announces that it achieved sustained electricity production from a primary new energy source by using photovoltaic technology to transform brilliant plasma, with power comprising millions of watts of light, directly into electricity.

 

By applying a very high current through its water-based solid fuel in a process called Solid Fuel-Catalyst-Induced-Hydrino-Transition (SF-CIHT) technology, water ignites into brilliant plasma, a bright flash of extraordinary optical power that has a power density of over a million times that of any prior controllable reaction.

 

Remarkably, the light emitted from the plasma is nearly a perfect spectral equivalent of the Sun, but at 50,000 times the intensity.

 

BlackLight Power has now successfully converted the brilliant plasma directly into electricity using photovoltaic cells (solar cells) which have been increasingly perfected to convert the Sun spectrum into electricity for more than five decades costing an estimated $1 trillion.

Humanity should finally realize that this kind of new energy source can save the planet and lower the impact of climate change. I hope that for once we will use our mind instead of corporate greed to change our future.

Arun Shrivastava's curator insight, April 17, 2014 4:27 AM

BlackLight Power, Inc. today announces that it achieved sustained electricity production from a primary new energy source by using photovoltaic technology to transform brilliant plasma, with power comprising millions of watts of light, directly into electricity.

 

The proposed 10 MW device that would be 1 ft2, [actually the device is about one cubic feet] would entail a 60-toothed gear spinning at 200 rpm, making the water chamber size a few micro liters, lasting a millisecond, during which two electrodes would create a supersonic-expanding plasma that goes into a magnetohydrodyamic converter, then directly into electricity, cleanly, safely...

There is a video which explains the technology:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cuzlyu4czYs&feature=player_embedded

 

AND ANOTHER VIDEO WAS POSTED A SHORT WHILE AGO:

The New Green: Cooperative business model rules the year - UConn Daily Campus

The New Green: Cooperative business model rules the year - UConn Daily Campus | Green Business | Scoop.it
One of the most hopeful movements toward a prosperous, human and environmentally responsible economy is the rise of the cooperative business model. Cooperatives, or “co-ops,” are businesses in which ownership of the company is shared, and since the Great Recession, they are rapidly rising in popularity. Last year was officially dubbed “The Year of the Cooperative” by the United Nations, and co-ops were the feature topic of the Spring 2013 edition of *Yes!* magazine. The magazine explained that there are four major types of co-ops: consumer cooperatives, owned by the people who buy goods or services from the business, a local example would be theWillimantic Food Co-op, producer cooperatives. Companies or individuals joining together to market their products, a local example is the Farmer’s Cow cooperative for dairy farmers, purchasing cooperatives (in which small businesses band together to compete with large corporations, examples include Ace and True Value hardware stores), and worker cooperatives, an example is the Massachusetts-based Equal Exchange. Many people may be surprised to know that co-ops already play a major role in the global economy – they have operated for about two hundred years alongside traditional corporately owned businesses, and today they account for over 100 million jobs worldwide, which is 20 percent more than multinational corporations. In the U.S. there are over 300,000 co-ops that provide 2 million jobs and $75 billion in wages and benefits.
