    Default OPEC sees threat from 'alternative energy'

    OPEC sees threat from 'alternative energy'

    Monday, August 15, 2005

    ABU DHABI ó OPEC plans to establish a research and development institute in an effort to improve oil production technology.

    "Our competitors, the alternative energy providers, are intensively pursuing research programs aimed at reducing the domination of oil and gas in the global energy market," Abdullah Salatt, Qatar's representative to OPEC, said. "Likewise, we should have our own independent programs."

    The R&D institute would be located in Kuwait and stemmed from a decision in 2001, Middle East Newsline reported. Officials said the institute would seek to develop technology that would ensure the fulfillment of demand by OPEC clients.

    It's difficult to grasp for me to think that we made a bunch of low life towelheads this powerful. These people are barbarians, and without oil would have been the lowest form of scum on the planet. I'd say its high time America finds its own energy source and let the Arabs rot with no source of wealth at all. Imagine farmers in this country growing cheap, clean, renewable energy and the wealth of this country staying within its borders.

    Fuck you OPEC

    The oil companies have the biggest price fixing scheme, where's the lawsuits against them?

    When are hydrogen cell fueled cars going to come into the picture? You keep hearing about how great they are... Let's get it rolling, shit!

    Someone told me yesterday there is a town/city in Colorado experimenting with this (Hydrogen) as an energy source. Can anyone confirm? Seems odd it wouldn't be more widespread if this were true.

    Hydrogen fueled cars do exist, but they cost around $1,000,000 to make. Bascially, when they can mass produce these things, then people will be able to buy them.

    However, there is no infrastructure for Hydrogen fuel (no gas stations for it), so most likely we will have a chicken/egg scenario where gas stations will only put in one pump in one county at a time until the demand gets higher. Also, I could see a move where gas stations refuse to put in Hydrogen pumps because they are paid off by oil companies or OPEC themselves.

    Basically, it will be another decade before we are even close to seeing Hydrogen fuel cell cars on the road. Until then, you might want to purchase a hybrid.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I was under the impression that hydrogen 'fuel' is basically water. The only caveat I've heard mentioned about the use of hydrogen (water) cars is the exhaust is basically steam, and if you think its humid now....

    No shit, I didn't even think of that. It would raise the whole "global warming" flag for sure. The only answer for clean transportation lies within using the earths gravitational pull. If it can be resisted, lets say, with huge reverse magnets attached to a car-like vehicle, then we will finally have our damned air cars that I have been waiting all of my life for.

    a very smart idea, yet, the earths magnectic fields change slowly, yet constantly, and then we would basically be in the same flaming P.O.S we are in now.

    It is a strange world we live in when the people who control the cocain empires are more ethical than the people who run the oil empires.

    I'll say it over and over, I take on day off from driving. I went to my power companie's website and followed their energy saving advice.
