The study of energy begins with the source of energy. Energy is the product of movement and law. Nothing exists without it. It can not be found "below", in the simplest forms of life, or far away on distant planets or stars. It can not be found. It finds you because it created you. It's source is the Triune GOD. Energy comes from above and outside of time. God moved. The glory of God is light. His light is a creative law order. He moved, His light came and that is the source of all energy!

New Multiferroic Material

In the lab, University of Minnesota researchers show how a new multiferroic material they created begins as a non-magnetic material then suddenly becomes strongly magnetic as the piece of copper below is heated a small amount. When this happens, it jumps over to a permanent magnet. This demonstration represents the direct conversion of heat to kinetic energy.  Read More Here and Here

Nuclear Engineer Arnie Gundersen demonstrates How Fukushima's Fuel Rods Melted and Shattered

Fairewinds' Chief Nuclear Engineer, Arnie Gundersen, conducts a field demonstration simulating the impact of Fukushima's intense heat upon Zircaloy [zirconium alloy] fuel rods. Gundersen's demonstration shows that intense heat weakens and embrittles Zircaloy changing it from a sturdy metal to a brittle oxide that is easily shattered. Images from the post accident Three Mile Island nuclear core show embrittled and broken Zircaloy fuel rods in the nuclear reactor.

Mister Bradley overlooks the real source of energy, the Creator.   It is so important to remember that the creation is orderly from the smallest of all things to the largest, from the closest to the farthest.  Order and movement create ... energy.  The energy the sun provides and creates is the result of energy in the first place.  With that presupposition we can now read Robert L. Bradley's thoughts on the source of energy:

The sun is the source of most of the Earth’s energy. The sun’s energy comes to us as heat and light, which, in turn, give rise to other forms of energy. For example, the sun’s uneven heating of the Earth’s atmosphere is one cause of wind. Heated air expands and rises and is replaced by cooler air in a process called circulation. Circulation produces wind.

Additionally, carbon-based fuels are probably a result of the sun’s light. Most scientists believe that a combination of bacterial action, heat, and pressure transformed the plant and animal remains into crude oil and natural gas. Coal was formed in a similar fashion when thick layers of dead plants piled up in swamps and rotted, turning into a substance called peat. When layers of sediment covered the peat, the resulting pressure transformed it into coal. Because peat, coal, tar, bitumen, petroleum, and natural gas are believed to come from long dead plants and animals, they are often called fossil fuels.

Will Lithium Become the New Oil?

Will Lithium Become the New Oil?

Not for a while. The bad news is that a truly economic, price competitive lithium battery is still some ways off. The problem with exploding batteries. The Department of Energy is pouring money into lithium research on an amazingly wide front. The car companies aren’t buying it, and are sticking with proven nickel metal hydride batteries. Unlike past battery car movements, this one is not going to end up crushed in a junkyard. (SQM), (ENS), (XIDE), (CHP), (ZBB).  Read the rest HERE.

Well, It does make tools handier.
