If it’s green it’s good right?
All things are FEASIBLE inside the Simple Green Mind. Above, 3/4 Ton PU recharging in order to deliver organic veggies to market.
Here’s an email I received recently, if you have any sense of reality, you’ll be embarrassed for the guy, but perhaps we ourselves are missing the fact that about half the people on the planet are as illiterate as it pertains to energy. As I’ve said before, the main problem is they vote for the impossible.
Subject: Air compressors for power generation
Message: Dt 3rd Sept, 2011
Excellent work indeed !
At ICET (Institute of Clean Energy Technologies ), we are interested in developing a Power Generation System to output 3 to 4 kw of elec power, the genset to be driven by an air compressor. The Compressor will be driven by thermal energy from SUN or kinetic energy from WIND.
We are very interested in your CHP engine of LG series. Pl give us as much of detail as possible including the Indian source of supply for your experimentation.
We shall also be happy to work together with you for a
product which will be of extensive use in the third world.
Awaiting your response,
B S Mxxxx, Chief Coordinator, ICET.
This man is not stupid, but he has become blinded by the messages of Elected Officials who will sell their souls to stay in power.
He’s read right past the whole idea of why we discuss importing an air compressor. He also has not taken even a moment to draw out his proposed power solution and inventory the losses.
Furthermore, we referenced air compressor, not air motor, but let’s consider anything to do with air power. Past engineers have taken us to the moon and back, they have documented and proven about everything possible one can do with an internal combustion engine, and this guy thinks they over looked air power?
For those who made it through Eight Grade Science Class with a passing grade, we understand that compressing a gas generates a LOT of heat, we also know when we attempt to take it out of storage, we need add a LOT of heat to get any serious work out of the gas. It all spells huge losses. In the past, dirt cheap energy has allowed us to use air tools, but there is NOTHING energy-efficient about them.
So let’s see, he wants to use an expensive solar panel to drive an air compressor to drive an air motor, to drive a generator to make electricity? Ahhh.. wasn’t he ( or couldn’t he) getting electricity out of the solar panel? did he ever stop to think all he did was add severe and crippling losses to the design, not to mention expense?
Reality is people have the same delusions when it comes to finance and money, it’s not because they are stupid, it’s because they don’t want to let go of the impossible dream.
You’ll hear people talk with anger in their voice, “these Politicians just need to compromise”. Are these people Just as naive and thoughtless as this man who writes me? How did they miss the fact that we have come to a TEE in the road? How did they miss the fact that we only need look across the Atlantic to see the same conversation is going on there?
We’ll just print money, we’ll just put everybody to work for the government. We’ll run industry off solar and wind turbines. Government will give everyone a sugar tit.
Close your eyes and imagine the billions of BTUs necessary to fire even one blast furnace at a steel plant. With out cost effective energy millions will die, and it will happen in Africa, India and other parts of the third world first. North America (Canada included) helps to feed the world, and the only way they have achieved this is because cost effective energy has been available. The present Administration is committed to changing this, because their supporters are demanding it!
If the Gang Greenies achieve their goal, not one of them will shed a tear for the millions that lose their lives.. after all; these are inferior people in Africa and beyond.. and every Greenie knows they are little more than a burden on the planet right?
