Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, BANG

HeroX, a subsidiary of the Xprize Foundation, has announced a prize design competition for  Abundant Clean Energy.   HeroX proposes that the world will be much better if global clean energy generation is dramatically improved beyond current choices – and that’s why they are developing this XPRIZE.

Key to this prize is the assertion that we live on a planet awash with energy, in a universe where all matter is made of immense amounts of energy (E=mc2), and we find ourselves in a society forced to make bad choices for most of our energy supply from a set of technologies as old as the transistor, not to mention fire. Because the vast majority of mankind’s current energy use is coming from unsustainable and damaging sources, HeroX suggests we need something better.  For this reason, they invite you to help design an Xprize to fund development of a new Abundant Clean Energy source or system. 

This design competition was inspired by a talk by Barry Thompson titled FORBIDDEN ENERGY.

The Sustainability Action Network of Lawrence, Kansas recently hosted Bryan Welch, the former publisher of Mother Earth News who presented a talk on using and designing Business as a Force for Good. In his talk he described the invention of the airplane,

“For 3,000 years, nothing, nothing, nothing, BANG!”  Then the Wright Brothers finally succeeded.
