    You can’t be making that much from the ads. Why not just ditch them?

    Coal fired power plants can biologically transform carbon dioxide (CO2) they produce into methane (CH4 – natural gas-like). Dr Craig Venter (introduced in previous blog posts) says his team should have a GMO that efficiently turns CO2 into CH4 in less than two years. Clean coal, turning the CO2 into to FUEL!!! How slick is that?

    Watch this 15 minute Dr Craig Venter interview-I’ve watched tens of thousands of hours of video, and this is the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen. —Brad Arnold, owner of this blog.

    I do not have a problem with 10 billion dollars to the Coal Lobby. In these times we need to kick start all forms of industry. What I have a problem with is the old out dated models like liquid coal. 50 percent of the electricity that this country uses comes from burring coal. If you liquefy it before it is burn then the rate payer gets stuck with the check as usual. NEW Way—were the consumer doesn’t get stuck with the check and the Coal is turned carbon natural. BIO-REACTORS, uses blue/green algae for CO2 mitigation and its by-products are ethanol and bio-diesel, which can be sold to of-set the installation cost and produce a domestic supply of all the alternative energy we could use. This is the 21 first century, this election should show you its time to try something new. The biggest waste we have are the smoke stack gasses. This is a product that just gets thrown away, so why not use it, its FREE. [see the RED HAWK POWER PLANT in ARLINGTON, AZ]
