Sounds like anthrax for those allergic to peanuts!
It has been a long time since I have posted on here. I originally sent this article to Matt Drudge. He seemed more interested in the local parapro who bit a young student (another local story) and he linked to that. Hopefully, this guy is not a crackpot. Personally, I believe he may be on to something. For all of us, I sure hope he is.
Some Fat Guy in L.A. said, "Never underestimate mans ingenuity when there is a buck to be made - shows that the capitalistic model is still the best."
recovering_Democrat said, "I wish about 70% of America could understand the truth of your post. "
And what makes it more amazing is that it started with a cow phart. Now is that capitalism or what!
“This guy is an obvious crackpot his reference to hydrocarbon rather than naming specific hydrocarbons shows that he doesnt know what he is doing.”
Yup. This article sounds like an idea for a research proposal instead of a finished product. I wouldn’t be capping any oil wells just yet.
Bell said the original idea came from observing cows expel gas. That is natural gas, Bell said. Cows release methane gas.
I wonder how long he watched the cows expel gas. I think we should send Al Gore to help him.
Wouldn’t the hydrocarbon yield depend on how many units of courics the process converted?
So if you were stuck in a traffic jam the air would smell like farts. Great.
Bump for later.
The continued reference to “hydrocarbon” could just be the cluelessness of the reporter showing through.
I've been working on dehydrated heat. Add your own boiling water and this stuff gets hot enough to burn your skin. You can even heat houses with it. Best thing is the low cost. I am now selling 1# concentrate bags for $100. If you add 10,000 gallons of your own boiling water to this, your cost for the dehydrated heat is only a penny a gallon. (The cost of the boiling water varies by region.)
My question IS...Will the process for creating it be given to the Red Chinese like we’ve given all our other technology? You GOTTA KNOW that the Reds are spying on this dude and his think tank like red on rice, I mean, white on rice! THAT is what scares me...If this is our saving grace, then we need to PRESERVE THE SECRET—NOT SHARE IT!!
Actually, the USDA-ARS developed the grasses, the University of Georgia got much of the credit for them, and ABAC (right across the street from the UGA Tifton campus) has a great turfgrass teaching program. Great teamwork all the way around.
J.C. Bell is a local entrepreneur not affiliated with any of the 3 institutions.
Yes....just imagine....s..t into gas...the fuel kind.
Before I did much beyond testing it on a tiny scale I would figure out a way to kill it.
The real tragedy is that while perhaps this technology is worthwhile, Dr. Robert Bussard, of “Bussard Ramjet” fame solved the Nuclear Fusion problem with his polywell. The Dept of Energy who earns money on the endless non functional tokamak won’t even look at the working polywell. We have Fusion available and because of politics we can’t have it. It’s a crime.
ping for later.
