A crash course in changing the world.

Texas university has eureka moment for coal-to-gas!

Dear Evoke Agents,

Let me share with you an important discovery:

Texas university has eureka moment for coal-to-gas!

Please have a look at this:


Main ideas:

Scientists in Texas say they have found a way to convert coal into gasoline at a cost of less than $29 (U.S.) a barrel – with zero release of pollutants,

World reserves hold the energy equivalent of more than four trillion barrels, or more than a century of actual world consumption,

We need to find a solution to peak oil, here is another idea!

Please take a minute to comment and support

I'd have to go with other options...this is two steps backwards

Thank you all for your reply on my Coal to Gas Evidence, nice to create a real debate, and to see a lot of interest. My approach is to find a sustainable solution that is, or would be: reducing pollution, securing domestic power from a reliable source, applicable in a scale large enough to make a difference. To replace 85 millions barrels of oil per day is not an easy game, Please let me know, thanks again.

I wake this morning crying, I ask myself, why? after such investment, but I lost it. Is it real? I wish to know why? maybe you have a solution!

Being sorry to someone shows that you are a human being. I am happy about that. Because we want change. We need people who can live with other people regardless of who are they. Thanks.

Michelle, a great idea in trying to optimize on a regional basis, no one is having the same capacities, so no one should have the same solution.

Sylvain, my problem with this would be the devastation created by the mining of the coal-- especially mountain top removal. In some places where the coal is easily accessible, however, it might be worth a look. Something to think about at any rate.

Interesting, and certainly worth while, though i agree as a replacement for oil, it won't work. however it is a useful way to support current coal industries and perhaps increase jobs. +1 KS

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
