To The Daily Sun,
Steve Earle is a walking, talking baloney generator.
Firstly, Dunning Kruger Effect is not what Steve says it is: "Dunning and Kruger wrote a dissertation years ago explaining that no one knows what we don't know". "No one knows what we don't know?" What the? The actual definition of Dunning Kruger Effect is "Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which low-ability individuals suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly assessing their ability as much higher than it really is. Dunning and Kruger attributed this bias to a metacognitive incapacity, on the part of those with low ability, to recognize their ineptitude and evaluate their competence accurately." Yup, that's Steve! And some others.
As to Steve's version of plasma, he is talking about the Keshe foundation's scientific hoax, the plasma generator. Mr. Earle says there are many plasma generators up and running. Nope. The Chinese would have made millions of them if they worked. If Steve had any scientific education he would know that plasma, the fourth state of matter, is required in order for nuclear fusion to be triggered. Presently there are no fusion reactors working on this planet. Zip.
After more than 60 years of research and development, the closest we have come to triggering fusion is at the Stellerator W7-X, based in Greifswald, Germany. Recently they finally created hydrogen plasma. The plasma is 100 million degrees Celsius and is kept from touching anything with magnets much like magnets keep particles from hitting the walls at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland. This is a step towards fusion.
When Mr. Earle spoke of Plasma Generator he is speaking of the Keshe foundation hoax. If Steve had the slightest clue what plasma could lead to, he would have mentioned fusion energy which is the holy grail of energy production.
Here is an article from a physics site about Steve's plasma generator nonsense:
Here is a story about the Stellarator X-7 which is not fiction. https://www.theengineer.co.uk/wendelstein-stellarator-begins-upgrades-after-fusion-success/
Read and learn, Steve.
