Myth 1

Renewables are renewable using renewable energy Only by doing several (presumably fatal) experiments is it possible to know what will break the back of a camel. Is it doubtful, based on the laws of physics, whether a battery or any other renewable source can be made without a surplus supply of energy. Economics tells us… Continue reading Myth 1



Sure, there are serous doubts about whether you can make enough electricity from capturing diffuse natural energy to power the economy since the ability to capture diffuse natural energy comes from a hydrocarbon source. Hydrocarbons are in fact one of the most efficient natural batteries available and yet we burn them to make batteries that… Continue reading Ammonia
