Quote:Dear California readers: if you drank tapwater this morning (or at any point in the past few weeks/months), you may be in luck as you no longer need to buy oil to lubricate your engine: just use your blood, and think of the cost-savings. That's the good news.

Also, the bad news, because as the California’s Department of Conservation’s Chief Deputy Director, Jason Marshall, told NBC Bay Area, California state officials allowed oil and gas companies to pump up to 3 billion gallons (call it 70 million barrels) of oil fracking-contaminated waste water into formerly clean aquifiers

Brutal. I guess now the election is over the corruption gets exposed.

Quote:While both hydrogen and battery advocates claim their system is the most environmentally friendly, the truth is that both rely heavily on fracking. Why? Because hydrogen is made primarily from natural gas and most electricity is generated by natural gas, at least in the US. And fracking is what makes the abundance of low cost natural gas we enjoy at the moment possible. The road to emissions free driving that doesn’t pollute the environment is an illusion if fracking is its foundation.

A recent study from researchers of the Univ. of Colorado say fracking fluid is benign...same as normal household chemicals. (I just can't find the study yet)

Found it:

"Using CU's mass spectrometry equipment, they found the chemicals used in the surfactants are the same as those used commonly in laxatives, toothpaste, detergent and cosmetics. They did not find the toxic chemicals known as endocrine disrupters that can have adverse effects on reproductive, neurological and immune systems."

"The Colorado Oil & Gas Association welcomed the results of the study that were published this week in the journal "Analytical Chemistry.""

Strange, I thought hydrogen was extracted from water and getting better... http://inhabitat.com/clean-energy-breakt...rom-water/
Guess I was in the dark about that, I assumed it was "clean energy".

That sounds great JR, but apparently Japan isn't going in that direction.

Quote:Hydrogen
Hydrogen flows through channels in flow field plates to the anode where the platinum catalyst promotes its separation into protons and electrons. Hydrogen can be supplied to a fuel cell directly or may be obtained from natural gas, methanol or petroleum using a fuel processor, which converts the hydrocarbons into hydrogen and carbon dioxide through a catalytic chemical reaction.

Sadly, Japan is really coming off as a charade as of late.
