    People were talking about the effects of Katrina on the oil industry and then the indstry itself... which led to a conversation on the EPA's restrictions and the lack of incentive for the major oil producers to open plants, especially in the U.S. Well now we have a whole thread on it so chat away! My $0.02 worth is that we should throw more support behind Thermal Depolymerization as it seems to be the answer to more then just one of our problems.

    poeple are so stupid; water (H20),

    hydrogen is a flamable and explosive so it can be used to run engines,

    oxygen is what can save us from global warming
    (its lack in the atnosphere is the cause of global warming)

    when electricity is passed through water, water splits, negetive gets hydrogen molicules and posite gets oxygen.

    if the hydrogen was used to power the engine this would end the use for gasoline, and the oxygen realiced would stop global warming and not only that but the amount of water will lower and give us more land.

    Flawless? Maybe it will reverse global warming to global cooling? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    the problem with Hydrogen fule is its a bit more touchy than gasoline in the flamibility area. but thats not anything that cant be over come. the main problem is getting hydrogen fueling stations to the far corners of the USA, untill this happens auto makers wont take making hydrogen powered vehicles seriously. in sorry but if a hydrogen pump isnt in Circle, Montana i have no interest in getting a hydrogen powered vehicle. this is one consept that ppl out side of the North east and southern California dont quite get. some of us in the mid west and western USA need to cover lots of ground and are in areas far removed from big cities, the largest city in Montana only has about 100,000 ppl. heck alot of places i have filled up with gas in Montana Wyoming and the Dakotas have two fuel pumps one diesel and one grade of gas. can you see these places adding a hydrogen pump for cars they may see a couple times a year?

    Brett, interesting info, thanks for sharing, ill have to read up on it more

    what would we do with all of the extra water as a byproduct? it would add up eventually.

    Gas is gonna be a ***** . We are all so lucky that storm didn't go farther west. Our oil pumps and refineries would've been even worse off. Is it possible to get any useful energy by exposing metals to powerful microwaves, like if you put aluminum foil in a microwave?
