I'd be on board with a plan to eliminate burning coal to generate electricity, even if climate change turns out of be over blown.

OSAKA -- What is the future of batteries? From smartphones to drones to electric cars, the current source of energy is the lithium-ion battery. But startups in Japan are battling to create high-performance power packs that could become the next global standard.

In the port city of Yokohama, a company's phone never stops ringing.

"Can we test the performance?"

"We want to form a partnership."

On the other end of the line are U.S. and European car and drone makers. They seek to try out new batteries or to collaborate with 3Dom, a startup that emerged out of Tokyo Metropolitan University in 2014.

In the beginning, it was a one-man show. Kiyoshi Kanamura, a professor at the university, was 3Dom's lone engineer. Since then, engineers from major appliance companies, such as Panasonic, and carmakers have gathered under him, lured by the promise of pursuing new activities.

Now there are about 70 engineer colleagues, half of whom joined during the past year.

I attended a seminar given by the Duracell folks years ago.  I don't recall much of it, but a salient point was the challenge of stabilizing that much chemical energy in a limited volume.  They had potential chemistries that were impressive, on paper, but simply unstable, or they had other issues (recharge time, deep cycle issues, etc.)

And cost of course.

We were supposed to collaborate with them, but as is usually the case, smart people don't often have decent ideas in a field they don't know where other smart people have worked for decades.

Not being a smart people I sat on my hands.

Not many takers for my nuclear proposition, which I think is a sign of the obvious.

Phoenix is going to set a new record of 110+ degree days in one summer over this weekend.  And there's still a whole lotta August left to go.  
Fun.
