"Clean-Air Czar of California Shifts to Accept Diesel Engines!!! --
In Controversial Turn-Around, Regulator Sees Diesel as
Alternative in Global-Warming Fight" --
The Wall Street Journal, October 24, 2002: For years, Alan
Lloyd has regarded diesel as a dirty word, synonymous with brown
haze and cancer-causing black soot. It's a view he has shared
with aging environmental activists across the U.S.
In a striking change of heart the chairman of the powerful
California Air Resources Board is taking a new look at Diesel
vehicles. He thinks they're poised to emerge as part of the solution
to a different environmental problem that's gaining more attention
in the U.S.: Global Warming... Here, Diesel engines are the greener
option because they don't pump out as much so-called greenhouse
gas as gasoline engines do. Dr. Lloyd says he has concluded that
a new generation of high-tech diesels developed for Europe bear
little resemblance to the smoke-spewers that Americans remember
from the 1970s and 1980s.
Alan Lloyd added the important fact that Diesel engines power
37% of all new cars sold in Europe (62% in France and 34% in
Germany) , with the share predicted to rise to 45% - by 2005
-- but fewer than 1% of new American cars have Diesel engines.
America is poised for a diesel motor vehicle revolution that
few people know is coming! One reason American lags behind other
industrialized nations in general is the poor quality of diesel
fuel sold in the US. A 1998 report on fuel
lubricity claimed North America had the poorest
quality Diesel fuel in the entire world! Tests found that
adding vegetable oil into Diesel fuels created giant leaps in
cylinder wall longevity and Diesel fuel lubricity. Over 50%
of the US Diesel fuel was found to be below the standards of
lubricity recommended by equipment
manufacturers!!!!! This is a serious problem for US consumers.
In the USA Diesel auto's required major engine overhauls after
300,000 miles while their identically manufactured counterparts
fueled in Europe went from 600,000 to 1,000,000 miles in between
It is widely believed that introducing vegetable oils
into Diesel fuels could more than double the life of most
Diesel engines and create more environmentally friendly exhaust
emissions. Vegetable oils are also greenhouse gas neutral or
more correctly CO2 neutral!!!!
The answer was the electric car however some major forces
killed it off since it was overly efficient with fuel costing
only 60 cents per gallon gasoline equivalent to operate on the
road. FUEL for only 60 cents a gallon!! In this era of corporate
dominated government we may as well have KBR (Halliburton) in
charge of our lives and do away with the false promises and lies
of our current "Two Headed Snake" system of government!
DEMOCRATS - In 1996, Bill Clinton awarded KBR no-bid contracts
to support U.S. and NATO troops as part of the SFOR operation
in the Balkans region.
REPUBLICANS - In 2002, George Bush awarded KBR no-bid contracts
to support U.S. in the war-of-terror to the ends of the occupation
of oil rich Iraq.
We need NEW leadership so vote for a candidate that news
papers seem to ignore. Ignore means "dangerous to corporate
profit", a candidate for the people.
Synthetic Diesel fuel derived from hydrogen
gas is basically a low-flammability, low-toxicity,
non-polluting and best of all a non-explosive
product in the event of an accident.
(We can't say all those things about Hydrogen,,,,,
Power plants running on Synthetic Diesel
made from Wind or Solar
Hydrogen could power our homes and true
100% electric cars!
Will the "Hydrogen Economy"
be run by people
pumping H2 gas into their hydrogen cars???
NO! This is Oil company propaganda to keep
you hopeful and confused
from thinking about Diesel and electric vehicles
that are available NOW.
Since Diesel can be made from plants and
hydrogen synthesis it is truly
a clean and sustainable fuel. Forget alcohol
too! Would you rather crash in
a train, jet or car fulled with non-flammable
cooking oil or full of 200 proof
moon shine? Yes that would make a BIG KABOOM
When it comes to a SAFE and sustainable
future then oil / electric is the only choice!
Does hydrogen gas have a future??? Yes!
1. As a means of storing
power in stationary energy systems as an alternative to using
2. As a future replacement
for ALL stationary natural gas and propane uses.
3. As a feed-stock for
the "Synthesis Gas Process" for making synthetic Diesel
4. As a synthetic Diesel
fuel for running CO2 neutral electric power plants.
twist to the hydrogen transportation future people aren't seeingyet is that Hydrogen will
instead be used for making synthetic Diesel, jet and oil fuels.
a renewable non-polluting liquid fuel packed with more BTU's
per gallon than any fuel on the market today that is virtually
non-flammable in an accident. Who could ask for more???
Recycling will be done on a global scale.
Plants, algae and other vegetation will be used for making carbon
monoxide. Wind and solar energy will break water down into usable
Hydrogen gas. Then the carbon monoxide and Hydrogen will be made
into synthetic Diesel fuel and burned in your car which will
in turn produce carbon dioxide (CO2). When the plants use the
CO2 to regrow the recycling process is complete and then we can
make the synthetic fuel all over again. The incomplete burning
of any harvested plants produces carbon monoxide (CO) and a tar
like byproduct that can be used in making synthetic asphalt for
paving highways and for making synthetic plastics too. This new
way of thinking and it is called "Global Gas Recycling"
- CO2 neutral thinking is a good thing!

AT THE GROCERY STORE!
Synthetic Diesel really
is the perfect fuel to power the future since it is recyclableon a global scale (CO2 neutral) but crop grown Diesel
fuels will also play an important role.
Organic oil fuels like Bio-Diesel, Green
oil, Black oil and Soya bean oil fuels will also play a bigroll in building the "Diesel Future"
and the new "Diesel Economy"
The piston Diesel, turbine and jet are
really the only type of engines you can "GROW" fuel
With a plant or flower you can't grow
gasoline but you CAN grow Diesel fuel in your garden!If you grow sunflower seeds (the best yield
of oil per acre) or soya beans you can press the oil out of the
seeds and burn it without any further processing!!! I run my
Diesel truck on straight store-bought "Wesson cooking oil"
just to prove a point. The exhaust smells sweet and it invokes
hunger in many people that smell the exhaust fumes, you can just
sense that veggy oil is very friendly fuel and my engine loves
I have talked many of my Diesel car driving
friends into keeping a gallon of "Wesson oil" on their
back seat just in case they run out of fuel one day. You cannot
safely put a gallon of gasoline or a tank of high pressure hydrogen
on your back seat now can you? Cooking oil is much safer. When
you take home your weekly groceries the cooking oil in your shopping
bags is not a great fire hazard even though it can easily run
your Diesel vehicle once it is poured into your fuel tank.
Soya bean and other types of vegetable
oils really are a safe and friendly fuel for the future!
(Use veggy oil at your own risk. Our Lawyer
made us say this)
Our future is definitely going to be based
on oil fuels more than you can possibly imagine!
Make your next vehicle purchase a Diesel
and get ready!
are just some of the reasons we think hydrogen gas will stay
at home as an energy collector and will not be on the future's
highways, shipping routes or airways AT FIRST.
energy revolutions will be the hybrid/synthetic
popular since they run on ANYTHING that burns including
spray and sawdust just to stretch your imagination a bit.
What is the Syntroleum
The Syntroleum Process is a process for
converting natural gas, town gas or hydrogen/CO gas mixtures
into synthetic oils which can then be further processed into
fuels and other hydrocarbon-based products. The process is based
on two primary steps:
1. The conversion of gas fuels into synthesis
In the first step in the process, gas is reacted with air
in a proprietary auto-thermal-reformer reactor to produce a nitrogen-diluted
synthesis gas, consisting primarily of carbon monoxide
2. The conversion of synthesis gas into
synthetic crude oil.
In a reaction based on Fischer-Tropsch® chemistry, the
synthesis gas flows into a reactor containing a proprietary catalyst
developed by Syntroleum®, converting it into synthetic hydrocarbons
commonly referred to as "synthetic crude oil."
This exciting new process
will allow endless future generations to enjoy safe and friendly
fuelsplus plastics made from non-polluting
synthetic crude oil derived mainly from hydrogen gas and recycled
For many Hydrogen thinkers
this information is an eye opener
or at worst an outright
slap in the face but just remember the past!
Back in the 1950's
everybody, and I mean absolutely EVERY man, woman and child knew
for an absolute fact that every small town would definitely have
its own little nuclear power plant providing cheap clean power
by the 1960's
and politics shapes the future while imagination is only our
me wrong, I love Hydrogen but technology is always the
unforeseen wild card that will change the outcome of the
future. If you have really understood the point I am making in
this web page you will have a rare glimpse into a future that
many others may not have predicted.

All truth passes through three stages:
First, it is ridiculed;
it is violently opposed; and
it is accepted as self-evident.
