Breakthroughs on the Clean Energy Front

Like you, I take delight in good news of scientific breakthroughs (not that I claim to understand them). I’d read about Kanzius’ salt water burning a few months ago. Here’s a couple more very promising developments on the clean energy front:
 
Superconductor:
 
Drive 500 miles – after a 3-4 minute electric charge?
 
“There’s been nothing big or disruptive, and we’re due for it,” says Nicholas Parker, chairman of the Cleantech Venture Network, which tracks investment in so-called clean technologies. He says energy storage is one of the hottest areas for venture capital funding right now. “Right across the board, better energy storage is essential.”
 
“Among EEStor’s claims is that its “electrical energy storage unit” could pack nearly 10 times the energy punch of a lead-acid battery of similar weight and, under mass production, would cost half as much.”
 
“It’s the holy grail of battery technology,” said my source. “It means you could do a highway capable electric city car that would recharge in three or four minutes and drive you from Toronto to Montreal. Consumers wouldn’t notice the difference from driving an electric car versus a gas-powered car.”

Hydrogen in the Home
 
“Sheffield-based ITM Power has developed an electrolyser that will generate hydrogen for domestic energy use and will be put into production next year.

ITM’s electrolyser uses new low cost materials, which significantly outperform and undercut those previously used and was developed and patented by the company’s research centre.

‘ITM power is developing products which will not only revolutionise energy sources for the home, but make a significant contribution to cutting CO2 emissions.’ said company CEO Jim Heathcote. ‘Hydrogen has an important role to play in bringing ‘green’ technology to the housing market and our development work, which will reach the production stage next year, has ensured it will arrive much sooner than many dreamed possible.’

‘With stored hydrogen’s ability to provide not only fuel for heating and cooking but power, either through a conventional generator or a fuel cell,’ Heathcote added. ‘The prospect of energy self-sufficiency without the dependence on fossil fuels has moved dramatically closer.’ “

      yeh…thatz just a bunch of worth-less CRAP!….’N B Forrest’ has his head jammed up his BUM!

      ‘free energy’ has been known since before Tesla’s time but it’s been ‘covered up’ by the vrs kike-controlled ZOGs @ the behest of the kike-controlled energy companies!

      here’s a ‘real advance’ with ‘free energy’…..similar to Tesla’s findings!

      (there’s a small town in Switzerland that has been using ‘a free energy generator’ to supply all its electricity needs for decades now!)

      WAKE UP! & smell the friggin’ coffee…..just abt every-thing just abt every-one knows is WRONG! & just abt every-thing just abt every-one has been told abt any-thing is A PACK OF FCKN KIKE LIEs!

      SURPRISE!
      The sudden — and surprising — end of the fossil fuel age will stun everyone — and kill billions. Once the truth is told about gas and oil (it’s just a matter of time), your life will change forever.

      Envision a world where freezing, starving people burn everything combustible — everything from forests (releasing CO2; destroying topsoil and species); to garbage dumps (releasing dioxins, PCBs, and heavy metals); to people (by waging nuclear, biological, chemical, and conventional war); and you have seen the future.

      Envision a world utterly destroyed by a lethal education:

      “Should we be taking steps to limit the use of these most precious stocks of society’s capital so that they will still be available for our grandchildren? … Economists ask, Would future generations benefit more from larger stocks of natural capital such as oil, gas, and coal or from more produced capital such as additional scientists, better laboratories, and libraries linked together by information superhighways? … in the long run, oil and gas are not essential.”
      — Nobel Laureate Paul Samuelson and William Nordhaus

      “The problem is, of course, that not only is economics bankrupt but it has always been nothing more than politics in disguise … economics is a form of brain damage.”
      — Hazel Henderson

      So important yet most know nothing. Batteries? They store energy. Where does that energy come from? Hydrogen, another battery. Cheap? As in money or as in investment of energy? Chickens before hatched count. Reality is so important. Understanding it could be the difference between the survival of your family line or its extinction. But who can be bothered right? Spelling bee more important.
