- later known as Happy Giant, Jahre Viking
, and Knock Nevis - was the largest ship ever built
, a privately held and highly secretive U.S. biotech company received a patent for a genetically adapted E. coli bacterium that feeds solely on carbon dioxide and excretes liquid hydrocarbons. Joule Unlimited
, co-founded by George Church
, appears ready to forever alter the way we produce fuel. [more inside]
tracks your gas mileage over time, helping you save fuel and expenses as you drive.
Genetically Modified Bacteria to make "Renewable Petroleum" (A biotech startup describes how it will coax petroleum-like fuels from engineered microbes within three to five years).
Boundless energy or bad math? Randell Mills
thinks he has the solution to our energy problems. In his company's patented process
, "energy is released as the electrons of atomic hydrogen are induced to undergo transitions to lower energy levels producing plasma, light, and novel hydrogen compounds."
It also implies that quantum mechanics is wrong.
and gas rations, what will be next
? I bet you didn't know we gobble oil
like two-legged SUV's.
I know this has been on everyone's
mind, but I just read this
article today and was astounded at my lack of foresight.
Silly me, here I was worrying about global warming when what I need to be fretting about is the decrease in fuel's impact on the structure of international banking!
Will we run out of fossil fuel before it's too late
to save the environment
from pollution and greenhouse gasses? The abiotic nuts
think we've got plenty more.
Personally, I think we can kiss the marvel that is suburbia goodbye
and start contemplating the fact that the focus on the post-post industrial revolution will not be information, but rather agriculture
And since solar panels and windmills and the like are made of materials that are extracted, transported, and fashioned by using oil-powered machinery, my money's on the folks who're stockpiling uranium
for all those shiny new nuclear plants we're going to need.
So, do we have a plan? You bet we do!
Oh. Well, we'll just rely on the advancement of technology
to allow us to weasel out of it!
Me? I've actually always wanted a horse
it was turkey parts
, then pig waste
and now straw
added to the camels
back. Thermochemical and biochemical conversion make use of natural processes such as enzymes, heat and pressure to create oil from garbage
so one day landfills may become the new domestic oil fields.
More Jet Fuel means higher prices for gassing your cars-
The production of jet fuel
has gone up. From what I've read when refining oil
, you get a higher percentage of gasoline than jet fuel per barrel. Then why are the gasoline prices
going up, as we are producing extra gasoline compared to jet fuel.
What to do, bitch
