In a news report which was published in Brazil today, inventor Victor Solmi declared that in 1 (one) litre of water there is as much energy as 3 (three) litres of gasoline. (sic.)

WATER & DIESEL HYBRID BUSES IN ROSÁRIO, ARGENTINA!

http://blogs.tampabay.com/energy/hydrogen/index.html

http://www.ambientebrasil.com.br/noticias/index.php3?action=ler&id=29297 [Please use a translation software Portuguese/English]

The buses are made in Brazil and running in Argentina!

Armando Rozário - Cabo Frio, Brazil - February 11, 2007

P.S. Will Bush examine these buses in Rosário in the near future?

For vehicle manufacturers, power suppliers, and anyone who burns large quantities of petroleum-based or natural gas fuels, Aquygen™ is a fuel additive that can significantly increase energy production and efficiency while decreasing polluting emissions. Unlike other alternative energy sources, Aquygen™ is an evolutionary technology that requires minimal modifications to existing systems to produce tremendous benefits.

I Guarantee You'll Use Less Fuel
As I said before, I guarantee a vast improvement in your gas mileage. However, I have had reports of an average of 15 - 28 % increase. With more reports coming in daily I continue monitoring the test results.

But How Does That Happen? You might want to ask...

Well, actually, it's pretty simple:

The Hydrogen - Oxygen mixture extracted by the OXY-HYDROGEN unit from distilled water adds extra hydrogen to the fuel mixture (as you know, hydrogen burns easily and powerfully) while the oxygen increases the octane value of your fuel.

So what you get is an energy-filled burner (hydrogen) and a higher octane fuel for FREE !!

Recycle water-base and oil-base liquids or liquid wastes into usable byproducts (including a clean burning cost competitive biogas known as magnegas, heat, coal, organic liquid fertilizer and other byproducts depending on the original liquid feedstock) without release of any contaminant in the environment, and without noise or odor pollution.


IMPORTANT NOTE: The primary energy source of our Biogas Refineries is a new, very clean and efficient carbon combustion achieved via submerged electric arcs. Consequently, our Magnegas Refineries have a very high efficiency. Nevertheless, due to the very low efficiency of currently available electric generators (generally less than 30%), the use of the biogas produced cannot reproduce the entire electricity used for the recycling.

Stan Meyer's Dune Buggy that ran on water. Hydrogen/Oxygen fuel in an ICE motor. On board electrolysis, no hydrogen tanks, no bombs on-board, just water. (1998) It ran 100 miles per gallon! The 2nd best inventor of the Century, besides Tesla, who was and will always be #1. Stan is the mustard seed of Water Powered Cars! The video left above is a one timed aired news cast, from his home town of Grove City , Ohio that you are not to view. The video screen to the right is a segment of the Equinox program about Stanley aired back in Dec. 1995 (approx.) See the entire program entitled "It Runs on Water" narrated by Arthur C. Clarke in video clips below.
It is in 4 parts, made possible by Andy the WizardKing from Blackpool, England.
Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4

He was a shame to hear that he was poisoned (March 98') and longer with us. He died in the parking lot of a restaurant in his home town of Grove City, Ohio. Sharks came a week later and stole the the dune buggy and all of his experimental equipment, according to his brother, Steve. Stan said while he was alive, that he was threatened many times and would not sell out to Arab Oil Corp.s The Military was going to use this technology in their tanks, jeeps, etc. He had patents on his invention and was ready for production. Only $1,500 to equip your car!

THE SOUTH KEEPS OM PAYING FOR THE ADDICTIONS OF THE NORTH - text by Nidia Diaz - GRANMA

An excellent report which points out that a thousand litres of water is needed to produce one litre of ethanol (from corn).

Is water so very cheap and abundunt in the United States of America?

http://www.inhabitat.com/2007/07/02/floating-wind-turbines-in-the-north-sea/



 

If the mass of the wind turbine is lifted by the tide, then, the lowering tide can leave the mass of the wind turbine above the water.

I can draw a picture if needed.

Do you see this?

The mass of the wind turbine needs to be anchored to the ocean floor like a toilet bowl float is attached to the toilet bowl tank.

The rising tide raises the mass of the turbine (and the toilet bowl float raises to shut off the water in the toilet bowl tank).

When the tide lowers (the toilet bowl float falls down and opens the water valve) the wind turbine mass falls with the tide.

How much energy does it take to raise the wind turbine mass?

How much energy does it take to keep the wind turbine mass up when the tide lowers?

If the entire mass of the wind turbine is held up at high tide with a gear attached to an electric generator, then, as the tide lowers the mass of the wind turbine will turn that electric generator.

Like this:

The tide lifts the mass and a one way gear doesn't turn the electric generator.

The tide falls away from the lifted mass allowing gravity to force the gear to turn the electric generator.

Up = no tide generated electricity

Down = tide (or wave) generated electricity

The same principle can be used at a home electric (power-indepenence) plant.

If the independent electric producing person generates too much electricity (when the sun and the wind are maximziing production) there can be an additional storage capability (so the excess production is not wasted) by lifting mass.

A. Lift water from underground (in a wll) to an above storage tank. The mass of the water can be used to drive a water turbine as the water falls out of the high tank to a lower tank.

B. When the high and low water tanks are full (no more room to use the excess electricity to pump more water) the tanks can be lifted by electric motor (generators) geared to a lifting rack. As water (mass) is drained from the tanks the remaining mass can be lowered to fill the tanks back up.

The idea, of course, being to utilize gravity as a source of energy.

Solar (Light and wind energy)

Lunar (Tide)

Gravity (lifting mass with excess energy to be used when sunlight, wind, and tide can't keep up with electric demand)

"Hoping to stabilize a $150 million annual electricity bill, Houston officials have negotiated a contract to ensure that a third of the city's power is generated by wind." If approved by the City Council, the contract would make Houston a renewable energy leader among cities.

Researchers at New Jersey Institute of Technology have developed an inexpensive solar cell that can be painted or printed on flexible plastic sheets.

“Developing organic solar cells from polymers, however, is a cheap and potentially simpler alternative,” said Mitra. “We foresee a great deal of interest in our work because solar cells can be inexpensively printed or simply painted on exterior building walls and/or roof tops. Imagine some day driving in your hybrid car with a solar panel painted on the roof, which is producing electricity to drive the engine. The opportunities are endless. ”

Toyota will officially be asking for permission from Japan's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport "for the testing of a prototype plug-in Prius on public roads." After completing the road tests, Toyota will then be able to begin the process of bringing them to market by leasing them to public municipalities and governmental offices. Asahi is also saying Toyota is testing a lithium-ion battery pack in the plug-in

 

Note in the comments:

Retiree got that on the money. A lot of solar power is being used today as well and people are able to easily afford the correct panels to charge a Prius over night (aka free energy). Either way, charging the Prius on a standard house box is equivalent to paying around 16 cents per gallon

Imagine an electric car with the same acceleration capability as a gas-powered sports car, or ultrafast rechargeable “batteries” that can be recharged a thousand times more than existing conventional batteries. According to physicists at North Carolina State University, all of these things are possible, thanks to their research on a polymer – or plastic material – that when used as a dielectric in capacitors may allow the capacitors to store up to seven times more energy than those currently in use.

My current electric vehicle, a Toyota RAV4 EV, also was discontinued a few years ago. This car costs me the equivalent of 60 cents a gallon to run. I never need to get a tune-up, change spark plugs or add water to the batteries or oil to the motor. The only maintenance for the first 150,000 miles is to rotate my tires. This car is quiet, fast and emission free. I plug it in every night at home, and it charges on off-peak energy.

Even if it were getting power solely from electricity derived from coal -- a common criticism of electric cars -- my vehicle uses 50 percent less carbon dioxide than a 24 mpg gas car (for a summary of more than 30 studies on the emissions of electric cars, hybrids and plug in hybrids, go to http://www.sherryboschert.com/FAQ.html). When I have to get new batteries, which I expect I'll will be when my car is 10 years old, the old ones will be over 90 percent recyclable.

Dealing with when the wind blows is a subtler issue. In this context, an important part of Dr Schmid's continental grid is the branch to Norway. It is not that Norway is a huge consumer. Rather, the country is well supplied with hydroelectric plants. These are one of the few ways (but not the only way, see article) that energy from transient sources like the wind can be stored in grid-filling quantities. The power is used to pump water up into the reservoirs that feed the hydroelectric turbines. That way it is on tap when needed. The capacity of Norway's reservoirs is so large, according to Dr Schmid, that should the wind drop all over Europe—which does happen on rare occasions—the hydro plants could spring into action and fill in the gap for up to four weeks.

 

Invest in it or lose it.

Produce it or lose it

Use it or lose it

Store it or lose it

Power doesn't just fall from the sky.

Colossal Magnetic Levitation Wind Turbine Proposed




by Justin Thomas, Virginia on 07.27.07


Science & Technology (alternative energy


http://www.treehugger.com/files/2006/07/china_unveils_w.php


Chinese developers have unveiled the world’s first permanent magnetic levitation wind power generator at the Wind Power Asia Exhibition 2006 in Beijing. The device is called a MagLev generator, and is being regarded as a key breakthrough in the evolution of global wind power technology. The generator was jointly developed by Guangzhou Energy Research Institute under China’s Academy of Sciences. The MagLev generator is expected to boost wind energy generating capacity by as much as 20 percent over traditional wind turbines.

The battery can be charged by plugging it in to any standard 110 V outlet and is fully charged in about 6-6.5 hours. There are two plugs, one on each side of the car, to facilitate home charging.

The Volt has a range of about 40 miles on the battery alone which might not seem like much. But, considering that most people drive fewer miles than that per day, it should mean that a lot of drivers will never use a drop of gas on their daily commute.



Production in 2010?

The race to build a cheaper solar cell continues to produce results, as researchers at Ohio State have developed a nanotech solar cell with a unique pink color that they say will one day be able to produce as much power as traditional silicon cells for a quarter of the cost.

Suppose that you knew in advance that the U.S. Federal Reserve (Limited Liability Corporation) DOLLAR value was going to plummet.

That may be a long stretch of imagination – a pie in the sky speculation – a tin hat conspiracy theory.

Suppose; however – that you did know in advance that the dollar was going to crash.

Suppose, further, that you have a retirement account that is denominated in dollars, so, logically you decide to reinvest that savings into something that was not going to crash and lose all the value stored (like electricity in a battery leaking out due to a short in the wiring).

Suppose all the above is a given – just for the sake of finding agreement (forget about arguing – no one wins – on purpose).

Suppose a person in such an imaginary situation as the one described above decided to cash in their savings and the following investments were set in motion:

A rural piece of land was purchased.

On the north boundary is a gas station mini-mart.
On the south boundary is an agricultural farm
On the west boundary is an industrial factory
On the east boundary is a small residential community

Upon your property you begin to assemble Solar Panels, Wind Mills, and Storage devices. You hook up to the existing grid. You assemble quick connections to each corner of your property (for direct hook up to all your neighbors in case the Electric Company does not purchase your oversupply).

You purchase 20 Electric Cars, Plug – in Cars, and/or Hybrid Cars.

You hire 10 drivers to drive your cars in the nearby town where traffic jams are often a problem at peak hours.

Each driver is given a stack of cards to advertise the re-sale of electric cars and advertise where their cars can be fueled up over night.

Now, for those who do have at least a cursory understanding of physics:

A.   How much fuel does an electric car waste while sitting in traffic?
B.   How much can be saved in fuel if all the traffic jam waste is added up?
C.   How much fuel is used up in transporting electric energy from the central electric plant to all the end points of consumption?
D.   How much fuel can be saved if all the transportation costs are added up?
E.   How much will your 401K savings be worth in 15 years?

Is it the currency? Am I the stupid one?

One key hurdle: creating an infrastructure of charging stations. Hal LaFlash, PG&E's director of emerging clean-technology policy, thinks EV owners could well end up charging their cars at their office parking lots. Car-sharing services like Zipcar and Flexcar offer another opportunity. "The car-sharing market has certain pickup points, and we can work with them on charging infrastructure," LaFlash says.
Think man!

You have a 401K plan that is going to nose dive into the toilet due to criminal debasement of the Global curency (dollar hegemony) that can be used to buy land, Solar Panels, an electric car lot, taxi drivers, and a filling station all rolled up onto one investment that places you on the bottom floor of the peacful revolution.

What doesn't add up?

The solid-oxide fuel cells produce half the greenhouse gas of conventional burning, but the real savings comes from eliminating the transmission losses between the central plant and home.

A British-led team of scientists has won European Union approval to seek to make nuclear fusion, the physicist’s dream, a reality.

Nuclear fusion has the potential to solve the world’s energy crisis with carbon-neutral technology by harnessing the process that drives the Sun. So far, decades of research have generated little more than hype.
