I give up. What is the answer?
The answer is conservation.
Think about it. If you conserve energy, you need less of it; and if you need less of it, ALL your energy sources grow larger in terms of what you use. Conserving energy is the best way to increase the amount of energy you have. That's why it is truely the best source of power. If you use less, you have more.
that was lame, very very lame
It's not lame, it's true.
Thats crap. One large nuclear power plant can produce more energy then you get from 'conservation'.
yes. But the amount of energy conserved is relative to the amount of energy used. Which is always more. So it is impossible to conserve more energy than used.
And technically, energy cannot be created or destroyed. The only thing capable of doing this is through fission a.k.a. nuclear explosions.
Merging atoms takes the same amount of energy as you get from splitting them.
Actually Cow, even fission does not create energy. It is releasing the energy that binds together the atoms of the fuel.
Sorry, I also used to work on nuclear powered submarines.
Blegh. That's my messed up memories from Science 9. 2 years ago.
Initally, until they get a self-sustaining reaction going. Fusion would be cool, though, as there's less hazardous waste than fission, and it's closer than any of the other futuristic stuff like Zero point energy (Don't think we'd want that. Nope).
Kathy Lee agrees with you, Gil...
I still say CHILDREN....
To those of us with kids...haven't you ever thought, "If I could only squeeze that energy out of the kid and bottle it, I'd be a trillionaire...."
Kids have more energy than everything else combined.... kinetic energy, phenomenal growth, constant jibber-jabber.....
You mark my words....
I agree. My son plays full contact video games. He bounces around so much it wears me out watching him.
