Billions in Change!

AFTER MAKING BILLIONS FROM THE SALE OF AN ENERGY DRINK, MANOJ BHARGAVA WANTS TO SOLVE THE WORLD’S PROBLEMS OF POWER, WATER AND THE OVERUSE OF FOSSIL FUELS

In general, Bhargava is an entrepreneur who taught himself not to worry about too much, including frills. The billionaire’s office is undecorated to the point of drab. He said he gives away close to 90 percent of his money to charities in India.

“The more you consume, the more insecure you are,” he said. “It’s the nature of the world. The simpler stuff. If your mind is still, you’re the happiest.”

Billions in Change Official Film

The world is facing some huge problems. There’s a lot of talk about how to solve them. But talk doesn’t reduce pollution, or grow food, or heal the sick. That takes doing. This film is the story about a group of doers, the elegantly simple inventions they have made to change the lives of billions of people, and the unconventional billionaire spearheading the project.

Free Electric Energy?

Regarding the heat transfer from the centre of the earth, at long term it will cool down the core, and that is not good, for the magnetic field, that protect us from the sun radiation… just thinking…

What’s your opinion?

  1. Graphene science | Mikael Fogelström | TEDxGöteborg

    Graphene. These just one-atom thick carbon structures is without doubt the most buzzed-about material in the world of science today. Kostya Novoselov and André Geim was awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize for their work on the matter and right now research teams all over the world are competing to turn knowledge into applications. The possibilities are endless. Mikael Fogelström, Professor at Chalmers, coordinates two large national research projects on graphene science. “We are still in the beginning”, he says.
     

  2. Alexandre Fernades says heat transfer from the core of the earth will cool down the centre and have implications for the stability of the earth. I think much more research is needed before this can be stated. If I understood how the heat was generated in the first place and the volume of heat available I would better be able to prove or disprove his argument but my gut feeling is the amount of heat dissipated would be negligible considering the total available and as long as parameters (to be identified) were not exceeded there would be some kind of homeostatis (?) which regenerated the heat. Science Nerds please help me out!

    • Hey Kevin, Thank you for your comment. You are absolutely right. More research is needed. I guess it’s a long way to go if we want to use the energy from the core of the earth. Also the drilling-technology is difficult to imagine… A more efficient heat-transfer can be very useful in long-distance-heating…
      Keep it green and keep thinking!
