  1. When I say "readily available", I meant in a sense that let's say... Let's consider it like this. You take some of the world's largest nations with the world's largest carbon footprints. China, the USA, India, Russia, Japan. These nations are polluting the earth and pushing alot of their carbon emissions into the atmosphere; China's is so big that it makes up for more than 1/4th of the carbon emissions on Earth. Technology is indeed improving, but what people need is not a limitless supply of harvestable energy (Wind, tide, solar, etc"). What people need, especially for nations with high populations with a rapid growth rate like China, India, Indonesia, Iran, etc", is a resource that is easily extracted and cheap (Miners, pickaxes and trucks are cheaper than engineers, skilled laborers and so on), readily available (Coal is abundant enough for the world's current needs), easily transportable (It's easy to bring fossil fuel from the source to a factory near the city, using already built upon roads rather than more expensive power lines) and energy dense (Which both coal and oil is energy dense enough). While technology is improving, things are rarely if ever that simple. China's carbon emissions are due to high levels of development and urbanization, no renewable energy source can truly swap out China's insane needs for energy other than fusion. The USA's carbon emissions are mostly due to the automobile, as America is THE nation that pushed and encouraged the car to be the dominant factor in American geography, city planning and method of connection (America doesn't really have any other widespread infrastructure like trains). India's story is much like China. Russia's carbon emissions are tangled with politics, as the russian oligarchs who control most of the powerful Russian energy industry is also themselves powerful, switching to renewables would make them lose said power. Japan, I'm not sure to be honest. But fusion? Fusion will solve many of these issues. Fusion energy would essentially not only push mankind to the next step of our societal evolution, but it would also restart the space race. I first heard of fusion from this video, which even though simplified is enough to convince me that fusion is the way of the future. Can you imagine a future where only a glass of seawater can produce as much energy as a barrel of oil? And with a second reactant needed and tritium being incredibly rare, helium-3 is needed instead which can only be found in abundance on the moon. I can imagine nations competing to get to the moon first and establish a base there, to try and harvest that helium-3 to power their fusion reactors. Even though I hate seeing nations fight, I cannot deny that humans are motivated by competition. In my opinion? Renewables are good, but they are merely a stopgap and a temporary solution to the true final goal; fusion reaction. After all, we as a species can only harvest so much energy and the single largest power source we can harvest is the sun, in the form of a Dyson Sphere. And the sun is a massive fusion reactor, it's only natural that this is our next step don't you think? 😄
  2. Here's the thing right? Renewables aren't as readily available as fossil fuels. So there's that, sadly 😞
  3. Not only that, Nuclear Fusion would essentially be the next step in our human species to go forward and reach the stars. With fusion, we might be able to finally stop trying to compete for things like Oil, and instead have enough energy for the entire world to go around. It would change the political and geographical landscape, both metaphorically and physically unlike anything we've seen before. Improverished nations would be able to be lifted up, developed nations spearheading the way for the future. we can only hope 🙂 I'm excited as much as you are
  4. Welcome! I'm surprised how much traction that quora post is getting, and confused at why the post is attracting people 9 months after I posted it... Algorithms man, just don't make sense But welcome! 😄 If you have questions please don't be afraid to ask, and feel free to contact me for a chill guy to talk to 🙂
  5. Lovely to meet you Gallant! I am Sanonymous, welcome to Valucre 🙂 Please, don't be afraid to ask questions if you are struggling! That's what I did and it didn't end so well. This community's lovely, I hope I'll see you around my friend!
  6. Perfect! Thank you 😄 Are there any of your characters free to interact with? I'm going to try and catch up with the thread
  7. He sits silently on his log, observing the conversations going around him. More and more people came in to join the hunting party, but he was too busy lost in his own world to mind them. Some he knew from his long travels, be it directly or indirectly, but nothing more than hearsay and stories. A name strikes him familiar, Dauner, he recalls. He sees people talking, and he glances here nor there, but he continues to do tip his arrows with the darts, almost robotically. It's not until an elvish male came up to him, that his focus breaks. He smirks slightly, and nods as the elf walks away, but he has no intention to lay down these "traps". No, he chose the boxes instead of the nets simply because it was cheaper, and much more portable. He intends to catch the allops, with the boxes. He's not sure how he'll do it, but he'll make do with what he's got. It would be nice to have a partner though - so he sets his eye on the first one to arrive here before him, once she finishes talking to another man that is. He notices that man having two different eye colours, peculiar. He tosses a box to Dia, "I need someone good enough to keep up. Interested to split our catch?" he speaks @Houndy Poochykins
  8. Yikes! My apologies, I've been really behind lately. Been busy applying to alot of places, but I think once I've made my post in another RP I have I can still hop in. Do you think it's too late, @Noko?
  9. Where else would I be? 😄 You're most welcome! There are many places to explore, as always the tavern is a good place to go to - lots of new people to interact with and get a feel for the place. The water cooler should be your next destination 🙂 If you do so, I'll be counting the minutes! Indeed 😄 You're welcome, I'm glad. It's rare to see something I did so long ago doing something positive I can see with my two eyes, I'm glad!
  10. I know some stuff. Some. Useless but hey, isn't it fun to talk to a wanderer who's been walking across Valucre for over 50 years? 😄 I'm in!
  11. "Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished, as the once vital voice of the verisimilitude now venerates what they once vilified. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose vis-à-vis an introduction, and so it is my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V." Welcome to Valucre 😄
  12. No way, another one! Hello! 😄 You're apparently the second person who arrived because of an answer I written 3 quarters of a year ago, super weird but glad to know I'm helping this place out by gaining some traffic, be it relatively few XD Welcome to Valucre! I am Sanonymous, I was inactive after I wrote that review but recently became active once more after some things happened which freed up my schedule. I see your tastes are pretty similar to mine, I love your ideas! I really do hope to see you around 🙂 If you do have any questions, please don't do what I did and keep them to yourself - please ask the outreach team and the staff members! If you'd like someone easy to chat with and get along easily, please do contact me! My discord is always open, Strategos#0877. Welcome, and have fun!
  13. Welcome! I hope you choose the former option instead of the latter 🙂
  14. It is for me, 25th of December, as I hail from the future! Please, enjoy this strange new Christmas 😄 I hope all who read this have a great holiday, enjoy your time with your family and friends, and if you ever need one more friend to enjoy this holiday with I am always open to chat. Take care and stay safe everyone! Merry Christmas, happy new year, happy holidays 🙂
