These are ten most promising alternative energy sources of tomorrow.
It’s a really exciting time to be alive. We have a front row seat to the only known transformation of a world powered by dirty fossil fuels, to a planet that gets its energy from renewable, clean sources. It’s happening just once, right now.

TDC In this video: https://youtu.be/oVOUE4sFMuw is it explained that there is a way to generate electricity from nuclear waste. It's called a Traveling Wave Reactor, and in theory, it could power the whole country for 700 years.
This is complete BS!!!!!!
The dirty little secret is that Water is easily converted into energy...hydrogen is highly combustible.
Also, magnets are a free source of propulsion.
And Tesla proved that electricity flows freely in our atmosphere.
OUT TEN EVEN 5 OF THEM ARE PUT INTO USE , I THINK MOST OF PROBLEMS RELATED BASIC NEEDS WILL DISAPPEARE WITH IN COUPLE OF YEARS. Instead of shouting all around the world 24x7 ABOUT global warming carbon footprint, air pollutions, breathing disorders , melting of glaciers, extinction of species.....why can't , why don't the promote & procure this kind of energy.???.
Hydrogen can be reacted electrostatic-ally in resonance for a power source in an ion reactor that ionized the gas to make an electric field induction in a coil and vice versa as the field collapses re ionizing the gas for a perpetual fuel source.
Um, no: hydrogen is not a power source. You are confusing people. It's an energy storage medium. You need an energy source, such as solar, to provide electricity to separate hydrogen from water (unless you are making hydrogen from bio-fuels or whatever, in which case you should consider the raw material as the energy source). I'd suggest anyone making this kind of video, run the script by a scientist before you publish.
BTW, you can nit-pick this response, but for all practical purposes, hydrogen occupies the same role as batteries, so it doesn't really belong in the list. .
Ethanol should not be on this list. Growing, harvesting and processing plants into fuel is profoundly inefficient. We should leave the plants for food and develop the many other excellent sources listed here for energy.
Why use hydrogen gas to power a car by converting it to electric when you can run any gas engine off it and start saving earth now oh but wait that's to easy and the lie here is that hydrogen puts off any kind of smog or gas it's by product or what is left after burning it is water clean water proven fact
You can harness static electricity through A car's radiator. Just connect the negative battery terminal to the radiator with one wire. After you drive A while put your hand on the side of your battery. It will be running at A higher temperature than normal. So the battery will need to be cooled if you want to use this trick constantly. Otherwise the battery will fail in A few months.
This trick is good for about ten percent gain in fuel economy. If you add an electric motor to constantly assist your engine while using this trick. The MPG could be much higher by using both.
Again...you need cool the battery or it will fail early.
Bio Fuel is a big NO NO, converting forests in southeast asia to a massive palm tree farm is not a good idea!!!!! A lot of wild life animals are dying because they loosing their homes. Dont support bio fuels! Go for a better alternatives!!!!
You forgot Antimatter. Why not just make a self running generator? You say it can't be done? It has and will change how we generate electricity forever.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPx8D5sq01A&t=2shttps://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=gerard+morin+free+energyAll based on Tesla's work. The universe is electric - it's all around us and it's free.
You referred to geothermal as discovering the "holy grail" because they were able to directly access a pocket of magma. Well, the reason that the core of the Earth is hot and molten at all is due to the decay of Thorium inside the Earth. So by your own definition Thorium power is the "holy grail" of energy. And yet somehow thorium molten salt reactors didn't even make the list at all even though for whatever uneducated reason fusion, the excessively ridiculously complicated, unstable, expensive and dangerous energy source, is your top choice. Thorium molten salt reactors already achieved every single thing that fusion wishes it could achieve, in the 60's in a dramatically simpler and safer fashion.
So to educate you and everyone else that doesn't know, thorium molten salt reactors(TMSR's) are nuclear reactors that are capable of EATING nuclear waste produced from factories AND from old nuclear bombs (so we can use them to safely dispose of nuclear bombs). TMSR's are completely and utterly incapable of having a "meltdown" because they operate under molten liquid conditions normally so with TMSR's what happened in Fukushima is unquestionably impossible (just because of the physics alone), they are extremely proliferation resistant (which is the main reason the U.S. decided to set the technology down because they WANTED Nuclear bombs and making them with these types of reactors is a lot more difficult, dangerous, and unrealistic to do especially when compared to light water reactors(the type of reactor used all over the world now)), TMSR's are literally "walk away safe" because they are self-homogenizing (meaning if they get too hot they automatically, with no human intervention at all just through the physics of the reactors alone, cool themselves down to an ideal level, and when they get too cold they automaticaly warm themselves back up to an ideal level (which means if you want more power from the plant you just turn a dial to increase the pump speed and like magic you just get more power), and the most magical part of all with these things is that they operate UNDER LOW PRESSURES, so even if a plane crashed through the containment building flown by a man with an rpg that somehow survived the crash and managed to shoot through the additional layers of steel and concrete and was able to somehow magically penetrate the core of the reactor, you know what would happen? The molten salt would slowly ooze out of the hole, immediately cool off by being exposed to the air, and solidify into a self-sealing plug that would automatically plug up the hole. How's that for containment?
And oh yeah, these reactors under normal operation use that same principle to make the reactor able to completely shut itself down all by itself with no human intervention at all by keeping a plug of salt at the bottom of the tank frozen by blowing cool gas over the pipe and if the plant loses all it's power through whatever kind of catastrophe you can dream up than the little blower stops blowing, the plug of salt melts, and all of the fuel drains out into a passively cooling drain tank that maximizes the eating of neutrons (which kills the reactions) and maximizes passive cooling (which means it will cool itself off without the need for any pumps or any other complicated engineered safety devices which is a feature that the people of Fukushima sorely wished their reactor was capable of).
"But wait" you say. "Molten Salts? But Salt is corrosive! I can prove it because road salt ate the paint off my car!". Why yes uneducated citizen that is a problem for road salt, because road salt mixes with water and a bunch of other impurities which in turn make it corrosive. But purified salt that operates in a vacuum is barely more corrosive than purified water in a vacuum (which is essentially not corrosive at all).
And oh yeah, after you make electricity with these things, without, btw, the need for water/steam based turbines because these things operate at temperatures that allow us to use much higher efficiency gas turbines (which happens to be a very important feature when making energy on the moon and mars), the leftover "waste" heat is at a temperature that is perfect for desalinating sea water. So when China finishes mass producing these things and starts scattering them all over the coast of the world we won't only get clean, safe, cheap, energy dense, emissions-free electricity, we will also get access to abundant fresh water that is cleaned far better than the ways that most water is cleaned today.
And that's not even mentioning the extremely rare medical isotopes (like Molybdenum-99 and Bismuth-213) that you can extract from these things that are perfect for identifying and killing cancer. And despite all of these nearly magical features of this miracle of a technology that we are absolutely blessed to even have the possibility of having access to, you not only failed to include it in this video but you also failed to mention it in the China megaprojects video when China has over 300 Ph.D.'s working around the clock developing and perfecting thorium molten salt reactor technology as we speak, and you didn't even think to mention it.
Well, fact check me, get YOUR facts straight, and correct this video and the china megaprojects video because anything less than that is complete and utter failure on your part.
Thorium Molten Salt Reactors are the real holy grail of energy, they are a proven technology that outperforms everything on this list which is why China (and many other countries) are pouring billions into developing the technology as we speak, and the fact that it wasn't at the top of this list (and somehow managed to not even get mentioned) is a complete and utter failure on the part of the maker of this video and he clearly needs to check is facts and update this, and the China megaproject video, accordingly.
WARNING: Health damaging products are being sold in Rosmann and REWE Berlin Central Railway Station Stores! After being warned, the staff refuses to take them off the shelves! I invite the press from Germany and all over the world to join me every time a purchase food or beverage to see what's is going on!
And here I would like to make an IMPORTANT NOTE: The fault for the health damaging products lies not with the companies that produced them! The products have been tampered with after the goods have left the premises of the producer!
These who do these crimes have nothing to do with the People of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Max Planck and the other Great Spirits: they are primitive individuals who somehow got through the system and should receive a severe punishment for their crimes!!
Go watch Don Sadoway MIT and Berkeley professor on his battery technology explain the tipping point of many of these projects being financially non-feasible. The cost per kilowatt hour is the deal breaker. If you pay 10 cents per kilowatt hour now - many of these alternate technologies cost double or more. Who is willing to pay A LOT more for for electricity - and subsidize people who can’t afford it? Don explains that if the raw materials are really expensive, then building many does not make that material less cost and it in fact may increase it. People need to be more educated and far more skeptical... For example, most people you ask don’t know what a kilowatt is. If you take one 100 watt light bulb and run it for 10 hours, that is 1 kilowatt hour (10 cents). If you run a quantity of 10 light bulbs at 100 watts each for one hour, that is also 1 kilowatt hour (10 cents). A 50 watt light for 20 hours - same 10 cents, you get it... Your electric company charges by the kilowatt hour and the average in the US is 10 to 13 cents. Most of these solar farms are taxpayer subsidized! Many of these technologies provide too low of power to be cost effective. The fact is we will not economize our way out of energy use to solve any of the Real Big Problems. We need massive power generation solutions. That will be nuclear probably from safe source and likely MIT... but that takes decades to build. We also need intermittent “Peak Load” solutions (the power grid is built for peak loads of 40% more) this is energy available immediately - envision that hot summer day between noon and four o’clock where the air conditioning is highest and businesses are humming. Battery or capacitor storage might help if its practical. Don Sadoway explains this. Consider becoming better informed and educated about the science of energy. Don’t take some flighty concept as gospel. Many won’t make it beyond the first few installed sites. Think Long Term...it must last over many decades these must last. The cost of operating can’t be expensive to repair and maintain. Always ask, how much will this cost to produce a kilowatt hour. I am Leary of Government subsidized installations if the subsidy does not financially even out over the asset life of the project. Let’s say solar energy would cost 30 cents per kilowatt hour without subsidies over the 20 year asset life of the useful life of the project... are we ahead financially or taking from Peter to pay Paul... I prefer projects that pay for themselves over time and that Government push investment to develop and deploy are well spent investments. Just YOUTUBE search Don Sadoway. What a man to respect and learn from.
Hydrogen as a chemical fuel is not a “primary” energy source, since it costs more to separate from water or other compounds than it produces when it burns (thanks, Entropy!). But if we use renewable energy like solar to do the splitting (as plants do; the carbon dioxide to oxygen is part of the process to package the hydrogen as sugars and other organic compounds to build the plant), and solve the storage and transportation safety issues, it will be a great “transfer” fuel in which to distribute energy for portable uses.
Solar power from space is the subject of a short story titled “Reason,” by Isaac Asimov, first published in “Astounding Science Fiction” (now Analog), and republished as the third chapter of “I, Robot.” The story was written in .,. 1941!
poop power and bio gas will make food for arofarms and stop fracking if we use our build up of natural gasses and make co2 for airofarms with the genrators this way hahahha cover all good and apsects of henry ford he has dark and posative history thats even made and the wind turbine in the air is on pattentyogiu under google putting up 80% of the world to high speed internt
Molten salt thorium reactors and simplified hot fusion reactors are legitimate contenders to replace fossil fuels. Everything else in this video is counterproductive folly. Solar, wind, wave, and biofuels of any kind will never be anything but destructive when applied to large scale energy production. For the big picture on energy, please see *The Renewable Energy Disaster* website at http://renewable.50webs.com/ and also *Video Tutorial Cures Climate Hysteria* at http://renewable.50webs.com/Video-Tutorial.html
Options like these leave a hope for life, for the coming generations on Earth. We can't be the fools with all the knowledge but of no wisdom to use it in the right way, we just don't create a perfect future on Earth for our next generations but we also share a part of our experiences on thinking about the constraints of vast knowledge.. and videos like these have to be promoted just to instigate new thoughts and ideas and also to learn about the consequences of our actions.
Warning, do not get the idea that centralized sources of power will help humanity in the long term. Centralized power sources lead to centralized power over humanity. The object is independence from domination from others while increasing the overall prospects of the 7th Generation.
Giant space mirror can be used to hydrolyze water to get the fuel for the rockets so they can carry even more space mirrors used to fuel even more cheap rockets to get even more renewable energy, and so on with an exponential development till we have 100% renewable energy. Using space mirror to produce more space mirror. I like this idea.
A car that's body is solar panels with solar windows that stores the electricity in batteries. Generate HHO on demand for fuel as an electric bio-fuel hybrid. With some fuzzy dice hanging on the mirror, LOL. Hand cranks on the widows, no power seats or butt warmers or coolers, don't wanna waste the electricity. It can be done. I expect you YouTube viewers to have the plans on my desk in 2 weeks and bring coffee and doughnuts too. Now get busy! And bring money too! Don't be cheap, dig deep! We need a catchy name for these new cars too. Don't just sit there, come on get busy.
Bio-fuels are crap you're still creating deadly exhaust ,wind solar tidal. I red a story about this genius kid just invented a new kind of peaceful reactor that can instantly be rendered bening if ever necessary, i have to find that article and post it . My bad, he was a kid but now works for NASA i believe.
the switch grass and algae are ( Imao) the best options....when they say it would take an amount of land the size of Russia and U.S. to grow. it.....this is where bio-genetic engineering can come in....if they can genetically increase the combustible elements of switch grass for a larger yield in a more compact plant....that would be the great break through!!!
I'm so excited to have had very similar concepts to the algae and lava geothermal idea in the past. Problem with the first is rivaling the efficiency of simply using solar, the second was finding a place to drill for actual magma.
All these projects are expensive, large scale.....maybe thinking small will give large results....every new home built today should have solar roofs....conected to the house beside it, on a net sharing platform. Disregarding the largest power source, available NOW, the Sun, is a blatant error. Going onto a huge project; a huge ring of solar panels, connected around Earth in geo syncronious orbit, would provide constant power output delvered by directed microwaves back to the surface.
I know these new forms of energy are very expensive but I read an article in the New York Times that there was a experiment done near flagstaff, Arizona that fed the local prisoners beans and hot dogs for a six month period. The scientists were able to convert human gas to usable energy. in fact, one of the scientist said, during the month of September, the prisoners gave off enough gas from those wennies & beans to supply enough energy to the entire city of flagstaff for 6 months. The only problem that scientists were still working on was the residual lingering odor cloud cast around the city.
All good points However everyone tends to ignore Yet another emergent technology I speak of course of 0 point Energy Such as the work being done by people like john huttchins, Dr. John Bedini, Dr.john serrel and so on Let us not forget the greatest champion Of 0 point energy was the same man you invented the current electrical system we use today I speak of course of Nikola Tesla
