While we are waiting for these technologies to develop renewable energy as our main source of heating our home and running our cars, we should do all we can to keep oil prices down. Sign the petition at http://tinyurl.com/mh5p36

Waste to energy ,cheap, clean , and truly green, check it out

W2 Energy Inc. develops renewable energy technologies and applies it to new generation power systems. Specifically, W2 Energy Inc.'s plasma assisted biomass to energy plants utilize state of the art technologies to produce green energy, both fuel (sulfur free diesel) and electricity, at the most efficient cost in capital investment and production per/barrel, per/Megawatt.

W2 Energy Inc. has seasoned management and cutting edge technology. W2 Energy Inc. owns a large technology portfolio of patents and know-how that has been extensively validated and ready for commercial production.

The W2 Energy BPR Biomass Plasma Reactor breaks down biomass or coal using the chemical energy stored in the biomass itself; the plasma acts as a high temperature catalyst. Unlike typical plasma reactors that utilize convection of the intense heat produced by the plasma, our BPR can produce enough Syngas (H2, CO) to feed a 10,000 barrel per day synthetic diesel plant and 100 Megawatt steam turbine with a mere 4 MW input. Since our unique process works in this manner most if not all the CO2 produced by the process is converted into Carbon suboxides in the form of humic acid and is mixed within the ash to produce high grade organic fertilizer. Therefore the process is completely C02 neutral even using coal or peat as base fuel.

I agree Fred in AK, as big of a renewable energy freak as I am, I still want everyone to eat! T. Boone is right when he says we need to get alternatives online asap but in the meantime we need iy all.
