    Ha! It's you, if you really believe to selfless Yanks, Terrorists in Syria and Banderlogs in Ukraine. As Yanks said: "Money talks, BS walks". There are just an economic interests.
  3. The environmentalist lobby won't be happy with any fossil fuels being burnt even if all the CO2 is captured.

    Even if it produced organic hummus as a by product.

    Odd you should say that..

    Some Scandi boffins have found a way of making food out of Co2 and lectrickery. Specifically a very protein rich whatsit, like wot todger dodgers eat for fun.

    Probably tastes worse than Theresa May's minge but could, if industrialised, provide almost unlimited animal feed.

    1 gram for two weeks? Usual chlorella grows faster. And yes, food will be ate by animals and return in air as CO_2.

    Wonder no more, he isn't. He's just hugely experienced with this stuff and frighteningly bright to a degree that's noticeable even when in the company of other people who are hugely experienced with this stuff and frighteningly bright.

    The issue is whether what's been said has been mangled a bit by the PR department and/or the journalist and the subs. The science will be fundamentally sound.
  10. As were all those people who advised the Labour Government to get us to buy diesel cars. Don't believe everthing you read.

    The diesel debacle was caused by a combination of the Man-made Global Warming and bio-diesel lobbies convincing Brussels that the only emissions which mattered were GHGs, and the car manufacturers offering up emissions reductions based on the miscalculation that the reductions they'd already achieved could be sustained at a similar rate in order to win political brownie points and avoid imposed limits.

    The result, as we know, was that legislators completely ignored the fundamental issues of particulate matter and local air quality in a dash for diesel and the perceived CO2 benefits of greater fuel efficiency, and the car manufacturers had to fiddle the figures because they couldn't keep their promises and make it work technically.

    It was an MMGW-driven policy cock-up not a scientific cock-up, which was why the counter-arguments made at the time had no traction with the Commission and Labour jumped on the band-wagon of greater dieselisation of the vehicle fleet.

  12. Still does nothing to support his theory.

    FORMER_FYRDMAN LE Book Reviewer

    But it does show why your diesel debacle comparison is invalid.
  14. How exactly?

    Ah, ha! I see! an untested theory with a view to making massive profits.

    "We will find out within months whether his untested ‘Allam Cycle’ can achieve the impossible: to extract CO2 emissions from a fossil fuel power plant at no extra cost, or even at a tidy profit. "

    "To Mr Allam’s astonishment, his revolutionary idea was picked up by a US technology group called 8 Rivers Capital specializing in ‘moon-shot’ projects. “It came out of the blue,” he said.
