This sounds like another good step towards an alternate energy system.

I have one question with all of these inventions. If we run out of oil, how will we make the plastics etc. that all these ideas are made with if we have no oil? Or is there some other synthetic material that can be used?


"I have one question with all of these inventions. If we run out of oil, how will we make the plastics etc. that all these ideas are made with if we have no oil?"

Please tell me you're not serious.


No Mike I'm not serious, I always ask questions that I have the answers to....

If I was a smart as you I wouldn't have to ask any questions.



First of all, we are not going to run out of oil. It will just become more expensive and we will move to alternatives. Secondly, the amount of oil used to make plastics is a small fraction of the amount used for fuel. Finally, plastics can be made from oil produced from biomass. If your question was legitimate, then I apologize for being insulting.

I remember the thin film battery breakthrough that Popular Science wrote about in the mid 90's. I marked it in my mind. They said it would lead to electric cars with much improved range. The 'idea' was given to a canadian film company (I'm not sure what type of film exactly). It then fell off the face of the earth. Now this re-emerges, and ExxonMobile's name is all over it. Did they shut down the research in the direction of cars until now? Does anyone remember the Popular Science article?


If you look at the advantages and disadvantages listed on the Li-ion wikipedia page, it makes me wonder if this is really worth it. They are going to have to improve it *a lot*.

Alright, But the studio has, over the last few months, been seeking both a new writer and a new director for "Mouse," with a number of up-and-comers on the list. We''ll keep you posted when they're hired, but the very fact of development momentum is noteworthy. Paramount has had success distributing DreamWorks Animation's films – the studio currently has the hit "How to Train Your Dragon" out in theaters -- but also has made the most of its few forays into animation production. "The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie," a Paramount/Nick collaboration, earned $140 million worldwide back in 2004 (and that was long before the 3-D and hybrid live/animation crazes hit full bore, which could give a jolt to this one if the studio went that way).

it really nice article, very informative, This sounds like another good step towards an alternate energy system.

Term papers

This article was informative, but I thought that there were more options when it came to using the suns energy. What about using solar energy on a large scale? How do solar farms work? Do solar farms use the same types of panels as residential properties? If solar energy is supposed to help wean our nation off of fossil fuels then I assume that we will have to think bigger than roof top panels. Can anyone give me more information on other types of solar technologies?

Nicole Brodeur in the Seattle Times referred to someone who arrived at a townhall meeting armed as "The 2nd amendment run amok". Here was my response on her column:

At a rally where the first amendment was running "amok". Next thing you know, we'll have people charging through the streets, demanding all their constitutional rights back. Where does it end?

I'm thankful for great blogs like this one. Really awesome info. Lets hope for a better future with out nuclear energy. Better batteries are being built already.


Buy a car battery with the longest reserve capacity possible since you may need it in emergency situations when your vehicle has stalled or will not start. It is not hard to learn how to buy a car battery. Important things to consider are its CCA rating, reserve capacity and its group size. Also consider climate conditions, warranty, installation and pricing and you are sure to buy the best battery for your car.

Kindle Fire review

Lighter car batteries would be an real advantage. This way the electric family car would be much easier to build.
By the way what do you think about the new kindle fire? It only has 8 hours battery life, should that not be more, considering, batteries nowadays can be much smaller and lighter?


There is another great situation that could develop from all of the inventing and researching that is going on for all the new technology.With all ofthis they are requiring more space so there for the building trades industry will benefit.
