The Liquid Coal Battle Rages

Technology is generally about letting our species be more effective and efficient, which is why it has become such an overwhelming force for green. But sometimes, technology is bad...even an EcoGeek must recognize it.

And the worst new energy technology in the viagra online world is undeniably liquid coal. Some people (mostly people who own coal mines) want to replace 100% of America's gasoline usage with a fuel that comes from coal. It produces two times more CO2, consumes three times more water than gasoline, and gives us more incentive to tear down our mountain ranges.

Even better, it's not currently economically viable, so coal companies are trying to get Congress to subsidize these billion-dollar coal to liquid plants. Luckily the NRDC and the Union of cialis online purchase generic Concerned Scientists are on our side. The NRDC has created a great (and frighteningly accurate) animation to spread the word, while the UoCS has released a report on the dangers of the technology.

The best thing we can do is get educated. Coal is recommended site generic viagra pill the cialis buy cheap online fuel of the past, not the future...if Congress is going to subsidize anything, it ought to be, at the very least, clean.

Sure, coal may be dirty, but I can;t help but think I would rather depend on American Coal than Middle Eastern Oil.
Keep up the good articles. I am a lurker.
Coal to electricity?
written by Rob, November 20, 2007
Coal is still dirty, but wouldn't it be more efficient to burn it to produce electricity and run cars off that?
Coat to gasoline is not new technology

Coal to liquid fuels (CTL) has been around for a long time and isn't really new. CTL was done in large scale by the Nazi regime in WWII and also under Apartheid in South Africa.
if Congress approves that they're insane

Yeah but the Nazis had technology like the Haunebu and the Vril craft (now the property of the US govt.), cause that kinda thing isn't new either.
learn from history

Yes liquid coal has been around for a long time. Yes our electric plants and vehicles can use it, so we are not depended on oil rich Arab countries. Yes the Nazis produced many technological advances, but Northern Germany is still recovering from their extensive coal use. The reason we don't learn from history is because we want to filter it through rose colored glasses. The streets and buildings of London, Paris, and Berlin once were smeared with the effects of industrial coal plants. Do you want to live in a world covered with soot? We can find the answers to our power problems through green technology. Support green!!
We thrive from death

So now instead of burning oil, which is made of deceased plankton, we are burning coal, which is made of deceased plants that are not necessarily plankton…I see a trend here. Is there any chance that the United States, or perhaps the world, could benefit from a product that was not initially made from some other life form that bit the dust? (I.e. whale oil, fur coats, the land and natural resources originally held by the Native Americans.)
Liquid Coal is Necessary and only here buy levitra online from canadacheap levitra tablets can be clea

Liquid coal made with carbon sequestration would be as clean or cleaner than conventional oil/gas/diesel. Carbon sequestration has been proven at Kinder Morgan in Texas where over 1 billion cu-ft of co2 is captured daily and pumped underground for storage forever. Water can be recycled, and moutain tops can be redeveloped into lakes and forrest land. I have seen pictures of redeveloped coal mines, so I am not convinced it destroys as much as claimed. We only have 35-50 years left on best price on viagra conventioal oil anyway, and need to be open to all sources of energy if we expect human life to viagra discount continue on this planet. The global warming crisis 100 years out will be a non issue in 50 years when the levitra professional 100 mg world runs out of oil and starves to death.
Is Green Clean
written by Michael, January 17, 2009
For years now we so called green technology telling us to clean up our act. So far these same people have not really come up with any viable alternatives, they advise what you cant use and why you cant use it, all green power is fairly ineffective and extremely expensive to produce, note without what the greens call dirty technology there would be no power to produce clean green technology products. We all talk about global warming gee it was hot today or yesterday?? The evidence is it not that we have not had any evidence of global warming for atleast 6 years maybe more, is it not also true that the planet we call earth has sufferred from global warming/freezing before now and will in the future, the sun which warms our planet which has cycles of where solar flares are produced have a greater impact with a more immediate response to our weather than this percieved threat of wow)) buy levitra soft tabs progress based global warming, tides are ruled by the moon, temperature is buy levitra canada ruled by the sun to say otherwise is nonesense, if this is incorrect turn out the sun and order cialis pill global warming I assure you will not be a concern. I'm not suggesting that we ignore all commonsense and turn our planet into a massive garbage tip where no one can live, but it doesn't make sense either to say lets just hibernate for fear of our own retribution.
Green scare mongering supports a huge industry in green technology, if there was no money in it there would be no hype, question is, is it the answer, if it was I think it would be in use predominantly not minority not alot of thought required there.
If the coal industry can prove that what they are saying is correct then we should run with it if not then seek alternatives and these alternatives have been out there since the inception of oil useage none have taken over to cialis available in india date why and dont say money its practicality.
