It seems that oil is beginning to SUCK!

Oh how we needed the oil to get where we are. If is was not for oil, we may all be riding horses right now...or would we? From the beginning, the internal combustion engine has relied on refined petro. Whether it is oil, diesel, kero, or gas, we have consumed petro like there is no tomorrow and because of this, there may not be one. Well that is kind of "glass is half empty" of me, but seriously, think about it.

At first drilling for oil was not much of a problem, but as the impending shortage nears, war and high prices begin to show us the downfall. We are all so "addicted" to it. More addicted than I am to my precious cigarettes. If only we could find a better way...

Wow, I have an idea! How about this. How about we use hydrogen and oxygen, just like the space program uses to launch rockets. Oh, you are thinking that I must be nuts after just rambling on about how astronauts are strapped to big hydro-oxy bombs. Yes, hydrogen and oxygen make quite a bang when ignited, but so does gasoline. Six to one, half dozen to the other. The difference is that 70 percent of the earth is covered with water, an infinite supply of fuel for all intensive purposes. If you can ignite gas inside of a cylinder, than you can ignite hydrogen just the same. Mix that hydrogen with a regulated stream of pure oxy and a nice piston pushing bang would result. Would we need to develop new technologies to make this happen? We absolutely would. It would cost a lot of money and would take a lot of dedicated souls, but we could do it. In the end you would have an engine that would burn clean gas and give off nothing but water vapor.

It gets deeper. How do you get your engine to separate the water molecule into hydrogen and oxygen? Well, I cannot answer that question. If I could, than I would either get knocked off by the petro billionaires or I would become a billionaire myself. I do know however, that I possess, in my bag of tricks, a brazing torch that uses electricity and a rather volatile electrolyte solution to break down the water molecule into its separate gases, creating a very clean and very hot flame for precision soldering. I would say that this technology is most certainly a good start.

Come on people, lets put our united wealth and power into something good for a change. I would bet that if all the money that has gone into the Iraq war was dedicated to the discovery of an alternative fuel source, we would all be well on our way to seeing oil fall for good. One thing though...please do not vote for presidents that have the majority of their money wrapped up in petro, it's just asking for trouble.

Hi,
I beleive Fuel cells may be a solution that works well! Electrical engines are fully designed, fuel cells already work in the labs of the petrol companies. The question is: when do they see the time is ripe to deploy?
Best regards
