    Peace? No way.
    The Middle East would explode in violence when the world stopped funding their governments through oil.
    i.e. You think it’s bad now???

    You’re both wrong. The oil companies would team up and make sure the engine never made it into production.

    The Greens would declare a threat to water levels, sea-life etc. The Fishing industry would object. It would be tied into Global Warming or something

    It’s already possible to make hydrogen gas out of water. While I can’t find the link to the video at the moment, DIY network introduced viewers to a man who uses solar and wind power to provide the electricity necessary to power his device that seperates the hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen goes to storage tanks, the oxygen freshens the air in his house. He has converted a pick up truck and a four door sedan for local driving. He heats, cools, and powers his house on electricity provided by hydrogen supplemented with solar and wind. He is also pumping power back into the electrical grid so the local power company sends him a check.
    We can make this safe. If we can make nuclear power plants, we should be able to make hydrogen gas plants.

    “Deniers” and “anti-green” folks have long deserved the “booby prize”. BTW: folks should check out how “energy companies” that used to be “oil companies”, have, for decades bought up many patents, and processes, to keep their profits rolling in. Interesting how “diversity in investment” has become “corporate monopolies”.

    There are warehouses full of inventions to get better milage. The oil companies bought, stole or killed for them. I have recently heard of people getting 300 miles per gallon with the Honda Civic by adjusting the carborator to run on fumes.

    As a devout Randist, the only reason someone hasn’t invented a perpetual motion machine is government interference and corrupt university professors who teach their so-called ‘Laws of Thermodynamics’ and tell their students that building a perpetual motion machine is a waste of time. Nothing is impossible for the American entrepreneur, as Rand clearly showed us. Thermodynamics is NOT in Aristotle, so it’s just another lie by the dimlibs.


    Also, Rand showed that the dimlibs got their corrupt professors to lie and get people to switch to steel when bronze is much cheaper and stronger.


    If only people would listen to Rand, we’d be back in the halcyon bronze age!

    I was at the University of Texas, and they were working on a sea-water powered car back in 1972, and were less than 5 years from achieving complete success. You just need to get the deuterium out of the seawater and,


    I’m no physicist, so I don’t really understand how it works, but the University of Texas scientists said they’d have it working in just five more years.


    I’m sorry I left Austin, because no place around here seems to be selling those cars.

    While many “mileage claims” ARE bogus, or require totally impractical driving techniques, in 1975 Honda was marketing FIVE models that got over 50 miles per gallon. They were also quite practical for the road, and were NOT hybrids.

    The many reports of oil companies buying up fuel saving devices sound like “urban legends” to me.

    Well we already know you don’t have to do crap to get the NobelPeace Award.

    We have to distinguish between primary
    energy, secondary energies
    and energy-carriers. The sun is a
    primary energy. Wind, water and plants are
    secondary energies because they exist only
    because of the sun. Any form of fossil fuel
    is a secondary power that was transformed
    into an energy-carrier.

    -

    Hydrogen is also “just” an energy-carrier. You
    lose a lot of primary energy in the creation
    and use (fuel-cell) of hydrogen). Of course
    it’s better to turn sunlight into hydrogen and
    (later) water than to burn fossil fuels. But the
    main problem is the primary energy source.
    Unless there is a breakthrough in solar
    panels or fusion power we will not be able
    to maintain our standard of living when the
    oil-reserves start to dwindle (soon…).

    -

    Nuclear power could have been a bridge
    to the future, but the capitalist system we
    have, combined with the tendency of humans
    to get content as long as “nothing happens”,
    makes it a very dangerous thing. It should
    be maintained, very carefully, until we have
    workable fusion power and all efforts should
    concentrate on that (and maybe ways to
    turn sunlight into fuel by means of algae in
    order to have a replacement for oil).
