Maksimovich at Outsidethecube runs an excellent scientific/political blog. Check out his latest post on coal to diesel conversion technology here.
Professor Alan Goldman and his Rutgers team in collaboration with researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have developed a way to convert carbon sources, such as coal to diesel fuel.
This important advance could significantly cut America’s dependence on foreign oil – what President Bush called “an addiction” in his 2006 State of the Union address. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, our 286 billion tons of coal in the ground translate into energy reserves 40 times those of oil.
How long until the greenies start raving on about “Peak Coal”?

Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner’s wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel Saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved. Search engine optimization, Try to Be happy
Near limitless ? Are you a geologist now ?
And you right wingnuts should know how Hitler fuelled his war machine. That’s right – with coal. Typical ignorant crap to come up with this “new” invention now. Still it should be useful to liberate some suckers from their investment cash.
Maybe you might want to research some of the real issues this technology involves – rather than clutching it as a panacea from high oil prices.
Oh but I forgot, you’re too busy looking for reds under the bed.
