Sunday soapbox

Sunday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation. You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, amuse, bemuse or simply muse.

    “Dr Monica Gerth and Dr Wayne Patrick are building upon technology already developed…a gas-eating microbe which can efficiently convert carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide into bio ethanol.”

    Sooner or later the Greens will have to embrace genetic engineering. If they don’t, they’ll be exposed as wacky for arguing against fossil-fuel based growth, whilst rejecting the very technology which presents the most promising alternatives.

    My word of the day is democracy which the American State department purports to support but doesn’t,

    Thus the USA courts the Saudi’s who live in a monarchy that makes Henry VIII’s England look enlightened and humane while lambasting Iran which is a democracy – one where the people consistently choose a Government to represent them who does not submit to the will of the American political elites and 1%ers

    Head of LanzaTech Dr. Jennifer Holmgren said the discovery was about showing that carbon waste should be seen as a viable option for the production of fuels and resources. “A platform that can produce sustainable food and fuels economically and at scale turns the issue of food versus fuels on its head.”

    One day there may well not only be tax on water resources but also on carbon.

    That will turn the whole AGW debate on its head.

    ^ a tax on carbon extraction, rather than emissions, I meant. Like when we have invented efficient technology to pull it out of the atmosphere and turn it back into fuels and other useful stuff.
