Hydrocarbons are abiotic.

Having absorbed the scenario of the Expanding Earth as explained by C Warren Hunt, the case for abiotic petroleum and coal resources is overwhelming. Geologic phenomena like mountains rising, the Crust’s compostion, earthquakes and volcanism all point to the violent chemistry of silane, SH4, the silisium counterpart of methane and ammonia. 

Silane releases explosive energy when reacting with oxydes, that is silicates in minerals and water fex, when emerging from the inner earth.  Depending on the quantities released , the type of vent and the mineral exposed all the commonly geologic phenomena can be effortlessly explained as simply as possible by silane and it’s properties. 

The corollary of a silane expanding Earth is that natural gas, methane nuggets, oil and coal resources all have abiotic origines. Biotic traces like petrified tree trunks, fossile spores and methane producing bacterias few are just insignificant sand grains in the big picture.  

Vladimir Kutcherov at the Stockholm polytechnic KTH has published supporting evidence of abiotic petroleum. The trace metals are from the mantle. Coals germanium content is certainly not biotic. Biomass are nowhere near explaining geology and quantities.

Abiotic oil means we could have enormous quantites waiting to be discovered by deep sea drilling down to 250km. The impact on Peak Oil, remains however to be seen.

The Earth is expanding.

Fasten your seatbelts !  The climate debate takes me to new territory. It started with the Mauna Loa observatory reporting that current CO2 trend is decreasing but not only that : The slowing CO2 buildup is dominated by CO2 from a global or an equatorial source ie not fossil fuels. Such distinction is possible on the grounds of isotopes and atmospheric distribution patterns. This is a relieve from bad SUV conscience and another nail in the coffin for AGW.

But where does this CO2 come from ?  A likely candidate is volcanic activity. We’ve always had high volcanic activity in solar minimas as has been the case now for two years. A row  is building in Italy over whether the recent earth quake could have been reliably predicted. We have eruptions in Tonga, Alaska and Chile.  It’s not at all unreasonable to hypothesize CO2 sources along the mid ocean ridges in the Pacific and the Atlantic as well.

And when you Google geology it all just jumps in your face : Geology is not governed by subductions and floating continental plates. The Earth is an ongoing combination of radial expansion and north-south torsion. Put together the rocks, the magnetism and the chemistry: Let time work its tooth and a clear and precise picture emerges.  So little back as 250 MA ago, earth was half the radius and half the mass. And dry. 

Oceans came about by a release of hydrogen combining with reduced oxide rocks to end up as water. Explosive eruptions can be explained as release of silane, the hydride of silisium. Oil is the synthesis from the hydride of carbon, methane.  No wonder natural Co2 can be found at Mauna Loa.  All links from  Martin Kokus

Gräv inte ner kärnavfallet !

Det finns inga atomsopor. Det ”utbrända kärnbränslet” är en ovärdelig strategisk tillgång för framtida teknologier och måste därför tas hand om på samma sätt som om det vore guldreserv eller arvsilver.

SKB kritiseras unisont för råkör i handläggningen. Nu efter årtionden med debatt och förberedelser skall plötsligt allt avgöras : Lokalisering och metod för slutförvar. Man åberopar oblygt kapslingsmetoden KBS3 et teknologisk världsherravälde och arrangerar internationell konferens för potensiella kunder. Blytunga innvändingar från ett samlat KTH om kopparkorrosion och andra relevanta frågor avfärdas med en klackspark utan hårda data. En motion i Sveriges Riksdag och utspel från SSM kräver en oberoende internationell granskning. 

Det är bråttom då vattenbassängen på reaktorplatserna börjar bli fulla. Det ”utbrända bränslet” – häretter Spent Nuclear Fuel (SNF)- lagras temporärt några år för att komme ned i temperatur och strålningsnivå för vidare hantering. Saken måste avgöras snart och fallhöjden är stor. Om inte direkt kris, så måste en plan på plats för handhavande av SNF.

Allmännheten är inte informerad om uranbristen. 30% av dagens reaktorbränsle kommer från dekommissonerade vapen. Uranproduktionen måste dubblas till 2015. Frågan är om gruvkapasiteten verkligen kommer att öka. I mellantiden bränns uranet bort i vattenreaktorerna med en skamlig låg effektivitet på mindre än 1%. Mera än 99% blir SNF.

Att 200 nya reaktorer byggs i tillegg till dagens 450 gör bara uranbristen ändå mera akut. De närmaste titalls år kommer kräva tusentals nya reaktorer globalt. Den rådande teknologin med fasta bränslestavar i vatten är ute av stånd till att leverera. California har lagstadgat förbud emot kärnteknologi som inte löser avfallsfrågan. Stölder av SNF är ett bekymmer men ingen showstopper.

Framtida kärnkraftteknologi kommer att använda utarmat uran och thorium till hög effektivitet. SNF är en helt nödvendig katalysator för att kunna åstadkomma uthålliga bränslecyklar. Att gräva ner SNF är därför att kasta bort nyckeln til framtiden.

En plan för omhändertagande av det svenska ”utbrända kärnbränslet” syftande till använding i framtida reaktorer måste snarast möjligt utarbetas. Goda priser kommer betalas för SNF på denna marknad. Båda Östhammar och Oskarshamn kan få flera arbetstilfällen än va en ren oövervakad begravningsverksamhet bjuder. Teknologiskt är såkallad pyroprocessing för vidare mellanlagring rutin i väntan på en komplett plan. Som ett minimum måste återtag tydligen planeras.

Barack still has to deliver

So he’s taking no chances and lands on safe ground in 10, Downing Street today. He could have made a splash out of his first foreign visit by going to fex Botswana, an exemplary country on a desperate continent that got most things right despite odds and neighbours. We all have high hopes for Barack but so far he’s only showed a killer instict by sacking Rick Wagoner. Thank you for that, but we need more bold moves.

  •  He knows that the rest of the world does not want to finance America’s spending any more. Geithner’s predator plan to soak up global credit has backfired. The Checks were mad; Angela Merkel says NEIN to more money printing. America’s lifeline is the powerful dollar but they can’t overplay that card. 
  • Sarkozy, the Chinese and others (Kazakstan) want a global currency. If the gullible Darlings ( US and British finance ministers) choose to royally ignore that call, the dollar might be undermined faster than they would like. Sarkozy has even threatened  to boycott the G20 if talks are not focused on establishing global institutions. Thing is : The French are a pain in the ass all right – but they are sometimes spot on damn right, surprisingly often on the Big Issues, see. Question is : What will it take for powerful countries like France, Germany, Japan, Brasil, China and India to just call the anglo-saxon bluff fiat and go for a new global currency ? The French would get the Russians in, the Indians would get the Iranians onboard. So suddenly the City of London collapses as Island and the American Empire reduces to a banana republic. It will not take more than offering the barril in other currencies.
  • At least they said no to geological storage of  spent nuclear fuel at Yucca Mountain.  There’s no such thing as nuclear waste. Neying Yucca was the right decision but probably for the wrong reasons. 
  • The Green Leap Forward will be proven a failure, like the madness with ethanol. If Barack pushes this far enough, it could be a real tragedy along the unresolved financial mess. We’re on that slippary slope from 1929-32 when the Great Depression really set out. 
  • The problem is that the White House allows black hole banking to go on. Geithner’s plan is more credit than structural reform. Fixing America’s oversized and corrupted finance multiheaded troll is not as easy as stabilizing Sweden was. This fact alone pleads in favor of a global currency. Sound assets will be shored up against a Terra and the dollar will be cleaned up at proper gunpoint. When it finally lands somewhere we will have ridden ourselves of bashing Texans and FED-JPMorgan bragging rights in the field of business and finance. 
  • Finally we have the climate charade. We’re now entering the Geronimo phase of hunting down the last Mohikans. We surely hope that the Copenhagen summit will fail. A good way for Barack to show a killer instinct would be to call off the CO2 AGW bullshit NOW.
