Did you include the cost of electricity?
Worse yet, the energy to pump those lasers was much higher.
The 1.8 megajoules of laser power were the output of pumping the lasers with 422 megajoules. And conversion from thermal to electric power is around 33% so there would need to be about 1266 megajoules of thermal power to produce that 8000 joules.
This is an inertial confinement system which means the lasers make it blow up.
Earthquakes are a symptom of built-up stress, a result of a continuing natural process (movement of tectonic plates). As you know from your choice of the word "induces", the boreholes are relieving stress which would otherwise be released later in a more violent way.
This is a good thing.
CO2 is easily liquified at room temperature with moderate pressure. Once liquified, just open a valve at the bottom of the tank to drain out the liquid CO2, closing the valve afterwards.
I wonder how easy it is to separate the iron pellets from the coal ash at the scale of a large power plant, which is about one million pounds of coal per hour.
Did you read the reports of the Accident Investigation Boards?
Challenger showed that NASA was incapable of safely operating manned spaceflight programs.
Columbia showed that NASA was incapable of changing for the better.
So do you prefer sucrose? Because sucrose is a compound of (technically a disaccharide composed of the monosaccharides) Glucose and Fructose.
As soon as it hits your stomach, gastric acidity converts sucrose to glucose and fructose during digestion.
You have confused "assault rifle" and "assault weapon".
An "assault rifle" "is capable of firing more than one round when the trigger is pulled". Typically a burst of 3 or continuous fire.
An "assault weapon" is defined by law as having some number of special features such as a pistol grip, flash hider, or bayonet mount or is simply on a list of "assault weapons" because of their looks.
In CA, AW are defined by Roberti-Roos.
