"As for the byproducts from this process, the hydrogen can power cars, Hart said. The carbon monoxide can be used to make electricity. And the metal and slag both can be re-used to manufacture other products.

With funding from the U.S. Army the Sierra Energy team is constructing a demonstration plant at Fort Hunter Liggett in Monterey County. It’s fitting that the technology first be demonstrated on an army base since Hart and company refined the process at the army’s Renewable Energy Testing Center at McClellan Park.

Me thinks this is good RIGHT JUDY???? 2am reading...

Thankfully our military leadership understand climate change is a major national security issue and are pursuing all possible avenues within their power to address it. Thanks Judy

That's one smart guy. (His mother was no slouch, either.) I'm betting that his power plant succeeds beautifully.

Sounds great, but, really the military cares about energy? Worst to think they care about the environment, and less under the power of an ignorant president like Trump....
