Synthetic Gasoline For $1.50/Gallon and No Emissions

Administrations dating back to the Nixon years have touted a "get off foreign oil" policy that, to date, has really gone no where. We're still on foreign oil. But now we might have a chance to get on foreign synthetic gasoline.

At least there is someone out there trying to come up with a solution. We have to get this info out before the oil companies buy them off as usual

Good post. This hydride sounds pretty good. I wonder how long it has been around as an alternative? Maybe we could have gotten off of foreign oil lomg ago.. I will havve do some reading on this. Thanks

Pam said she'd love to tell the Arabs what they could do with their oil... well, that goes for BP and all the rest of them, too. Wouldn't this be great? We'd no longer be in the clutches of Big Oil., yet I fear Big Oil isn't going to be that easy to get rid of here in the US. Too many have a vested interest in the status quo...

Technologists consistently make grandiose promises that major corporations fail to deliver. No one should hold their breath waiting for 1.50/gallon gas. The simple fact is that such cheap fuel would actually increase pollution as more and more people line up to buy more and more personal vehicles which in turn will drive up production tremendously. Production of any product, even a fuel efficient vehicle, has significant environmental impacts. What the earth needs no matter how much we all hate the idea is higher fuel prices to drive fuel consumption down and fuel efficiency up. Also, I am greatly troubled by the idea of using uranium as a fuel source, such as was mentioned in the article. As Americans who hopefully care about their environment and the quality of life that we are leaving to future generations, we all need to demand more and better forms of mass transportation. Privately owned combustion vehicles are bad for the environment.

Cyclical consumption of intrinsically obsolete products and services is the ONLY thing that drives a(n obsolete and self-destructing) monetary economy. The environment suffers, human health suffers, everything suffers. The Corporatocracy is not about to let products and services that sustain our environment to be marketed on any large scale; it is anti-thetical to their ONLY purpose: profit$ at the expense of everything and everyone else.

Just being realistic today. Now. What to do?

With all the turmoil and crap going on in the Middle East lately-we better do something!

Noted, I really hope it gets in to public production quickly. The standard OPEC response has always been for OPEC to drop oil prices so the new technology withers.

Noted, and maybe they could also use this for the scooters, if they can use it for electric bikes. That would make life for people who need to use scooters a lot easier as well.
It's a great idea for cars and I hope it takes hold, if it works as they say we wouldn't be dependent on the Middle East. Instead they might have to buy it from us, that would make a difference for the West indeed.

Interesting. But how much pollution can we expect from it?

It sounds like a possible solution to the oil-shortage, but how will it effect pollution? I know it is easy for me to say try to leave the car at home more often since I live in a country that is not even a 10th of the US (and has seriously well-maintained biking-possibilities :))... Let's just hope that this new gasoline will cause less pollution and more awareness about the fact that our resources are not endless.
