Portable Power

As opposed to potable power (moonshine)? This runs the gamut from firewood and grain to mini-blackholes, but pretty much skips fossil fuels.



3:30 One ton of TNT has a trillion food calories

12:38 betavoltaic battery

17:40 Quantum Plug Uncertainty

19:50 Biogammavoltaics fungi that eat radiation!

...then on to anti-matter and black holes. My interests falls off at that point, but Isaac Arthur is a completist.
