OPEC Just Collectively Shit Their Pants


It's the future baby and the Hydrocarbon Barons just got a whiff of it.


Breakthrough solar cell captures CO2 and sunlight, produces burnable fuel

  1. Almost too good to be true.

    I'm sure Al Bore and his greenie-weenies will do their best to claim it causes more harm than good, and will crank up their propaganda machine to ludicrous speed....

  2. That's gonna be something to invest in for sure. Just watch for those two researchers to end up "missing".

  3. One thing I have wondered about... What happens "if" we get to the point that we are using up, or not producing enough carbon dioxide? Will plant life start dying off? Will cooling start?

    In 100-1000 years ( if man is still here ) will there be a whole movement to start creating more because "#Global Cooling"?

    1. They will just have to blow the dust off that plan, it's already on the shelf.

    2. Burning the fuel (I'm thinking methane, but maybe they can add more carbons on the chain than that) will create CO2 again. The same way that burning hydrogen creates water again.

  4. But now what are Malthusian nihilists supposed to use as a club?

  5. Good find. Hope it scales up and gets into production quickly. Wouldn't it be nice to have no reason to meddle in the Middle East?

    1. Suck up to the Chinese instead (84% of world tungsten production).

    2. There's already no reason - put all the environazi said in a fema camp, and let the oil flow!
      There is enough oil in North America to fulfill our needs for 300 years minimum.
      ...but you won't hear that from the msm

  7. This is absolutely fascinating. I presume that with additional solar cells for direct electrical power generation, the device could store the compressed gases in tanks and, presumably, make a robotic cellular phone call or send an automated wireless Internet email to tell you when the tank fills up.

    An alternate solar power idea has been around since the 1970s, courtesy of science fiction author (and former NASA engineer) Dr. Jerry Pournelle. You build satellites that have square miles of solar panels connected to them, up above the Earth's atmosphere, which makes them more efficient, since the Earth's atmosphere blocks or absorbed around 95% of the sun's light. The power they generate is beamed down as microwaves, and the ground station has a type of antenna called a "rectenna" that converts the microwave energy back into electrical power. During the 1970s this idea got a little funding from NASA, but official government concern about the "Energy Crisis" dropped off after 1980 or so, and the project went away, along with a lot of other very promising ideas.

  8. Are you SURE this isn't a spoof? Sounds like the UIC are . . . .. GROWING TREES.

  9. Can you imagine if governments would label gasoline a pollutant and regulated it back in the late 1800's? At the advent of oil refineries the sales product was kerosene and gasoline was a nasty biprooduct that had no use...

  10. The biggest problem is that carbon dioxide is only a trace element in the air. The concentration is too small to be productive.

Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, some peoples stink more than others too. Remember, I can make your opinion disappear, you keep the stink.
