Sérious Environmental Threat that is even more menacing  than Mankind's compromising Earth's atmosphéric shield of Ozone...

Dear Family, Friends & Colleagues,
A ~couple of weeks ago,  I felt a sudden, Signíficant prompting to Re-Connect with Past Friends from the Riverside Fourth Ward on Blaine Street in Southern California.

Background on the above:  my Air-Force father had been transferred from BYU's AF-ROTC program to March AFB in Sunny Southern Calfornia.  For me, the move from Utah to CA soon turned out to be a Blessing:  it was there, from the many Youth activities at Riverside 4th & its Mt Roubidoux Stake, that I came to love & respect my new "California-Cool" Peers, thanks to their great personal qualities & examples.

Getting back to my need to locate lost California friends and mentors,
Below I've shared the Best from my first search attempt:
  • the beautiful blog of Lissa Rogers about her fond memories of the Fourth Ward and its Bradford Family that were bought back by Gordon R Bradford's Funeral in 2011.  

Serving as the Ward's Bishop in the 70s,  Gordon Bradford was the most influential leader I had in "Youth" (now so Very Long ago – L.o.L. !).

Thus am I looking to get Back in Touch with 1 or more of the following:
• the late bishop's son Brian Bradford &/or Brian's Sibs;
• G. David Williams, who served 4th Ward as Bishop i believe right after Gordon did;  and especially
•  *Sheldon* & Cheryl  *Rowe(?)*. 

While Sheldon busily did Chem R&D at UC-Riverside as a Grad. Fellow &/or PósDoc , he also served as Explorer Advisor for the 4th Ward's Young Men program.  
I recently recalled Sheldon's giving us scouts a Tour of the lab where he documented the (devastating) effect of Chlorine atoms from CFCs on O3 Ozone molecules  in the upper atmosphere...

However the Most Serious  "Enviro Threat" that mankind faces Today, and one which I must Touch Bases with Sheldon & his colleagues/community about, is also a Threat to the very Economic Survival  of the (rápidly-declining) West.  
And This Threat is even more menacing – Orders-of Mágnitude More Sérious – than the Ozone-Killing Chemistry (whose early discoveries I, for some inexplicable reason, "recollected" only recently from Way-back from the early 70s...) !

So ~Thanks in Advance~ to Anyone here who might have info leading back to Gordon Bradford's kids, to Bishop Williams, or to Sheldon.
–Kim J.

Very Convincing Proof that China "Means Business" with MSRs !!
The below Press Release from US Nuclear Corp shocked this Chem-E (me) into Posting Action:
      • China's MSR Project in Shanghai has recently placed a Firm Order worth more than around One-Half Million Dollars....

And this ~Massive~ Order is just for "Tritium-monitoring equipment" for the Well-Funded project's Pilot-Scale R&D Molten Salt Reactor.

➩ Besides making me want to Emmigrate far Out of el old U.S., how does US Nuke's P.R. make You feel?

Although this Autoblog article is Excellent,
   Before you read "Elon Musk has a Secret Weapon...",
May I suggest searching for "Jeff" and reading the very insightful comments on Musk's "Energy-Biz Vision" that Jeff has shared.
And When Ms. Members — members of the Molten-sal. Community — will have made thermal-Calôr and e-Power on Demand for just 1.2¢ and 2.4¢ per kilowatt-Hour, and ultimately for even less, cool Elon's Long-term Biz Viz Shall Be Realized:

Danke für "adding me" to your Circles, +Thomas Engst.
I wanted to commend you for your dedication to Nature and to keeping our Planet a Habitable Place!
By the Way, one of my "Life Goals" is making "Molten-sal." Science (the most sustainable way that's affordable for Massively making Energy & Chemicals) Popular and Commercially Profitable ( sans silly subsidies del Govêrno!).  

Because Mankind must come to cherish "Ms. Sci.", especially if we want to be able to keep the Earth's Seafood gesund:

It is unfortunate that Germany's wind and solar buildout proceeded as far as it did. 

Over the last decade, well-intentioned policymakers in Germany and other European countries created renewable energy policies with generous subsidies that have slowly revealed themselves to be unsustainable, resulting in profound, unintended consequences for all industry stakeholders. While these policies have created an impressive roll-out of renewable energy resources, they have also clearly generated disequilibrium in the power markets, resulting in significant increases in energy prices to most users, as well as value destruction for all stakeholders: consumers, renewable companies, electric utilities, financial institutions, and investors.

Hey Ms. Members  of Norway, the UK, EU & Elsewhere:

While North-Sea / Brent Oil is worth Less (as opposed to Worthless) and while Norway e otr. Nations Nearby yet have some (petro)Income with which to do R&D,

Now is the Time to "Light a Fire" beneath the *Butts of #OpinionMakers † que Care for Real regarding Earth's Environment !

And although I do care a lot about #ClimateChange , I am even More Concerned über #OceanAcidification .
For the Later, please see bit.ly/relentless-rise for the Problem and its Solution. 

Thanks for Spreading the Good Word on Molten-sal. Science and the #MSR  !!
–Kim L. Johnson

PS especially à mi Nord Kolégas:
    One such Opinion-Maker seems to be Scotland's +Peter W Thorne, who awhile ago moved to Norway to do Climate R&D in Bergen !!
My main historical interests have been in the investigation of observed climate changes globally, with a particular emphasis upon temperature and humidity changes from in-situ measurements (marine, land and weather balloon).

Story
Introduction

My speciality is the development of sustainable feeds, fuels and energy, and my aim is to spawn a slew of new industries throughout the West. 

Through the affordable Chemistry and Catalysis of Fluorides, Chlorides, and similar anhydrous but Liquid technologies – the West can build up novel, lucrative enterprises like truly-sustainable energy from fluid-phase Thorium reactors.  My personal goals include countering several very serious challenges to America, the West and western economies in general... 

But the best Defense to such challenges – severe enough to eviscerate whatever atrophied economic muscles remain, should we fail to wake up fast – is for the West to develop Molten Salts:

  1. Here is my briefest intro to Molten Salt Science:   "Saving the West with Ms. Science."
  2. Watch a quick 10-slide introduction to Molten Salt Science.  In addition to enabling the West with affordable Heat & Power from Ms. Reactors, Ms. Sci shall facilitate a number of Industrial Processes that should become highly profitable more quickly than China can copy!
  3. In January 2011 China publicly expressed its intentions to Control Molten Salt Reactor technology Globally.
      (Download for better graphics, and check out the Endlink for a quick "Ms. Chem" tutorial.)
  4. The Response of the Dept of Energy to the obvious global "Ms. Ambitions" of America's main competitor (China) is baffling to most observers outside of the DoE Bureaucracy...
    (also peruse resources in the appendix!)
  5. Fate of the US is tied to Rare Earths and Thorium.  Feel free to add your Two Bits to this thread on G+.
  6. Summary of the Thorium Energy Alliance strategy for the US to lead an Industrial Renaissance in the West. 

With a true passion for developing sustainable technologies for Chemicals and especially Energy, I know that if we fail to develop these very do-able technologies – which China is doing while I type – that no western manufacturer will be able to compete with the Sino Competition in the near future.

Regarding my "industrial" background, after I earned my M.S. in Chem Engineering and "cut my teeth" at Honeywell for 6 years (coming up with new chemicals, RMs and processes for high-temp "Fluoride Energy" systems), 3M Company recruited and moved me & my family (of 6 back then) to Minnesota. 

For 13 years I really enjoyed developing a number of Energetic & Fluorochemical products at 3M.  
I also invented and implemented (in 3M manufacturing facilities) numerous new & improved chemical processes. Several of such processes won 3M-Corp Manufacturing Awards, and three were granted US+ patents for significantly reduced costs & environmental footprint.
