Food for thought

  • 3.9×1022J : estimated energy contained in the world's fossil fuel reserves as of 2010
  • 2.2×1023J :total global uranium-238 resources (using fast reactor technology)
  • 3.8×1026J : total energy output of the Sun each second

Every single second, the sun outputs more than a thousand times the sum of all of the fossil fuel and nuclear fusion fuel we believe exist on the Earth
