Listen, this is the real problem! Everyone wants to talk, talk, talk, but no one is really willing to do anything but recycle their stuff and turn off the lights from time to time. Yes, their are those who do allot! But it has to be a full effort by America.
All we have to do to turn this country around so not to use anymore fossil fuel in our vehicles is not buy another new vehicle unless it is natural gas, elec or HF Cell, etc. Just buy a used one and let the gov and the big 3 know it and within a year it would happen.
I suggested this plan in a discussion and challenged Picken's, but not a word!! It is quite simple and easy, but still as usual, NOTHING!!!
I'm not going to buy another new vehicle until it happens...
Lets hit Petro use realy hard.Hydrogen technolegy they say is not ready and if it was half of america would reject it so Lets Fuel Ships and Airplanes with Hydrogen.Use replacable tanks.In the planes,if they have problems they dump the fuel,so a simple parachute could put tanks safely on the ground.If they oppose that then instal altitude valves on the tank so its almopst empty when it touches down.As for ships,cut the size of diesel tanks and install hydrogen tanks so the engine is still lubricated but burn mostly hydrogen.Lets move on this before China does.Their not as stupid as people would like you to think.
I have been trying to get a location for converting an auto from gasoline to natural gas for over a year and have not been able to locate one ...I am in San Fran, ca , East bay region..e-mail is Deeannorm@sbcglobal.net, area code 94587
They say that friendship is like

Peace and Love of Jesus are always
believe our word is power ..
Mr. Pickeins, I know how to charge the batteries of an natural gas and electric hybrid...no, it is not "plug-in" or "solar"...Natural gas cars would not have to plan or change their routes in order to find an natural gas fill-up...Just give me 5 moments of ur time for a phone call,,,Dr.Charles Barker (580) 726-3623 ,,This just might be the answer to our oil problem....what have u got to loose??? Beats tha heck out of turning water melons in to fuel !!!!
Natural gas on the commodities market sells for $2.75/million BTUs which is then equivilent to approximately 10 gallons of gasoline (1.25 million BTUs). In some places in the US pumped Natural gas sells for $0.80/ equivilent gasoline gallon(gge). It should not cost more than $4,000 for a home pumping station and dual fuel conversion. High costs of natural gas at the home are caused by excessive local gas company and pipeline gosts. Ask me firstname.lastname@example.org
My comment is similar to the Bree Darden post eariler. I have access to more than 700 acres in SE Colorado right along the Colorado Canal. What is my first step to determine 1), if the land is good for wind or solar development; it is on the far western edge of the so-called wind corridor of which many speak, 2) what will it take to see my dream come true and see it developed?
Just my 2c...I keep seeing ads for American cars that get "great gas mileage"...23city / 30highway. This is pretty sad advertising, albeit effective I suppose. My 2005 Honda Civic Hybrid over a BAD period gets average 42mpg and stop/go traffic is ideal. I am befuddled when a large guzzler (hummer, large sedan, oversize pickup, etc) zooms by me with stickers like: Buy American...Support Our Troops...America First...wow....could they BE any more hypocritical ??! Driving to and from in one of these fuelsuckers is one of the LEAST American things the average citizen can do...stickers aside. I want to feel ASHAMED when I'm passed by a vehicle that gets better gas mileage than me. I want it to become socially unacceptable for Americans to give aid and comfort to the enemy by supporting their petroleum empires. We need a Nancy Reagan type slogan, you know??..." Just Say No To Gas Guzzlers" or some such. And when you know of a friend, relative or acquaintance who buys such a vehicle, do YOU comment on their purchase?....or do YOU remain silent?
All "alternate" energy as a source of primary energy is a hoax. Using BTUs as a standard, when all BTUs involved in the research, development, manufacturing, distribution, maintenance, repair and replacement of "alternate" energy devices are added-up, the net return is less energy than could have been had by simply using (burning) all the fossil fuel required to create these contraptions. Unless, of course, the Laws of Thermodynamics have been repealed. If this weren't so, wind farm energy could be used to create more wind farm energy and also power our homes and businesses. Isn't this just another attempt to create the perpetual motion machine?
T boone i have come up with what i believe is the worlds most self efficant vehicle,,but willl ONLY talk to you,,at least i trust you...contact me if interested..if not,,i reckon i,ll try ford or chevy,,i,d rather you tho,,,later
Hello there are hot babes with sexy photos just added to my In box and I don't like it. I feel it is an attack against the Picken's Plan to cheapen and demean it. Can you tell me how to delete from my in box and also can you screen to keep this smut of this site. Thanks, Marilyn Schrock
