• GREEKS: Taking control of our own lives

    A paper claims that male suicide rates in Greece have risen significantly. Austerity has turned Greece into a social battlefield. For some, it is a result of the tactics imposed by the “Troika”, the European Commission and the IMF. Job cuts, salary reductions and the violence imposed daily have taken their toll on the population.

  • Thorium: An Energy Solution

    Thorium is readily available and can be turned into energy without generating transuranic wastes. Thorium’s capacity as nuclear fuel was discovered during WW II, but ignored because it was unsuitable for making bombs. A liquid-fluoride thorium reactor (LFTR) is the optimal approach for harvesting energy from Thorium, and has the potential to solve today’s energy/climate crisis. LFTR is a type of Thorium Molten Salt Reactor (Th-MSR). This video summarizes over 6 hours worth of thorium talks given by Kirk Sorensen [...]

So the only thing we can be sure about in human population studies is that for the last 100,000 years, people on average, had two children to succeed them, or there would have been a population explosion a thousand years ago. In just the last [...]
