First of all, I guess that maybe this topic should be at the non-aviation forum, but first of all, it started in this forum, and second, if it has to do with suitable for flying fuel, it has also to do with aviation. So here we go:
Last september, Aaer777 started a new topic having to do with the shortening reserves of crude. The topic went “out of topic”, but became very interesting in the ecologic point of view.
I answered two threads to this topic, one of them having to do with the silly idea of the electric cars and the pollution they create because of their nature and used energy, despite how clean they look, and another clarifying (or trying to...) the difference between water desalinization for human use (drinakble water) and water distillation for obtaining hidrogen (H2O
strictly). You can read more (all) about it at http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/287669/
This thread now is because I wrote about Mercedes Benz and BMW already using hydrogen engineered cars NOW. This has nothing to do with heat pumps, fuel piles or gas turbines. Those cars have NORMAL piston engines, and you can have more information about "Zero Consumption Vehicles" (of course, at global ecologic level), which have nothing to do with the sucking stupid "Zero Emission Vehicles", which, although some hundreds of miles away (meaning in electricity production plants) actually HAVE WORSE emissions and still quadruplicate the manufacturing, entertainment, consumption and recycling costs.
has explanations about past, present and future of “h” cars (including photos of the new BMW 750hL
), and http://www.zukunftsenergien.de
but this one is in German and, when I tried to, the “English Version” link did not work.
To finish, a very thought provoking sentence by Shell’s Council Administration member, prof. Fritz Vahrenholt:
“Spending only 1% of the ecologic tax on fossil combustibles, we could be able to make 100 gas service stations become hydrogen service ones, every year”
Hope everybody enjoy these “technological present futures”.
