Oh, Balls. Now we'll have to rename every town and mountain range in the Southwest, along with all their Naval ships and boats.

Default Re: How is this going to save any energy?

This is the problem - hydrogen and fuel cells won't alleviate our fossil fuel dependence unless we generate the hydrogen from other sources - like solar, wind, nuclear or biomass (plants).



There's an article in this week's Nature that highlights the CO2 problem - simply stopping the rate of increase of atmospheric CO2 isn't enough; the amount of CO2 emissions needs to drop to the rate of CO2 accumulation by the oceans and biomass.



Oh, and Nature isn't some sort of crazy greenie moonbat publication, fyi.

I was born in Santa Monica so perhaps my birth is illegal.

Los Angeles is already renamed. It's now appropriately called LA LA LAND.

Don't forget St. Louis and St. Paul, along with the Saint Lawrence river. This last one will have to be negotiated with the Canadians. Also, Illinois, Oklahoma and the Dakotas are Indian names, as well as myriad city names across the country - looks like we are making fun of the Indians and using them as "mascots", so the names have to be changed.

That's right. Didn't the NCAA ban Indian names from sports teams?



The Illinois Fighting Illini will now be know as " "

Default Re: Where Does Gasoline Come From?

Well, the oil has to be pumped out of the ground in the Middle East or Venezuela or Canada (about half of what we use); the oil then has to be pumped through a pipeline to a portside terminal, where it's pumped onto an oil tanker; the oil tanker has to take it across the ocean to the United States, where it has to be refined into gasoline; the gasoline has to be transported to a distribution terminal; from the distribution terminal, the gasoline has to be loaded onto a tanker and distributed to the gas station. And then you get to pump it into your car.



So which uses more energy, performing all of the steps above to produce gasoline, or converting natural gas to hydrogen in your garage?

If stupidity was an Olympic event, I think we might have a couple Gold Medal winners in our midst.
