In 2022 more than a billion people globally live in slums and they use the burning of plastic and toxic trash for energy. The air pollution that that causes is severely damaging for nature. The toxic fumes from the smoke lands on plants and animals, in rivers and ultimately in the ocean.
The problem is escalating. Slums are rapidly growing and some countries in Africa are expecting a population growth of 941%.
A recent scientific discovery can provide a solution that provides decentralization of energy that will enable to end poverty and to protect nature against poverty related pollution.
Decentralized free and clean energy
Professor Paul M. Thibado of the University of Arkansas discovered a low cost energy-harvesting circuit based on graphene that can provide limitless free and clean energy.

A low cost energy-harvesting circuit based on graphene could be incorporated into a chip to provide clean, limitless, low-voltage power for small devices or sensors.
The idea of harvesting energy from graphene is controversial because it refutes physicist Richard Feynman's well-known assertion that the thermal motion of atoms, known as Brownian motion, cannot do work. Thibado's team found that at room temperature the thermal motion of graphene does in fact induce an alternating current (AC) in a circuit, an achievement thought to be impossible.(2020) Physicists build circuit that generates clean, limitless power from graphene A team of University of Arkansas physicists has successfully developed a circuit capable of capturing graphene's thermal motion and converting it into an electrical current.

The prototype chip is a 10 mm chip (the size of a coin) and produces 10 milliwatts of power (0.01 watts). Graphene is a cheap and abundant resource that can be constructed using 3D printing technology.
With 1 trillion chips in a large factory hall, the output would be 1 gigawatt (continuous output, also at night), similar to that of a nuclear power plant, but free of charge during the production of energy and 100% clean.
A robot factory and 3D printer combination can potentially manage an array of trillions of chips to provide a power plant that can compete with nuclear power while it has several features that could make it more usable for big cities such as the ability to put it deep underground. Also, the construction costs could become very low once the power plant management technology has matured.
Instead of a power plant, a matured version of the technology could integrate the chips into wall isolation in homes to provide limitless free energy on a home level.
A standardized energy container system might allow arrays of chips of different sizes to be combined in any way for any application imaginable from mobility to utility, unlocking complete new possibilities for human life enhancement similar to LEGO for energy.
Low cost power chips could be mass produced and help solve poverty and prevent poverty related pollution of nature.
Prioritization of fusion technology?
Energy today is provided through controlled channels. What will happen when energy is abundant and free on an individual person level?
There have been multi-trillion USD/Euro investments in nuclear fusion technology that is likely to have been paired with a grand political plan for investment recovery.
Will the graphene energy chip technology receive priority, to end poverty and poverty related pollution of nature?
