Energy Dense Fuels and Bettering Human Lives
Who are the pioneers in the energy industry?
What new technologies are they inventing? Which technologies aren’t they inventing or are they missing?
Are there new fuels we can use?
How do we normalize nuclear for society and convince the nuclear industry that increased focus on safety within the industry is killing more people outside of it?
How do we be cheerleaders for abundance, freedom, and prosperity?
These are the kinds of questions we’ve had, and we think we’ve discovered the answer to many of them – but not all of them. We want to talk to the people who can help us discover a better and brighter future moving forward, and we believe we can do that using energy dense fuels. As engineers, entrepreneurs, and environmentalists, all of our analysis demonstrates it’s the best solution for humanity and our home planet.
