Default A Solution for the Depletion of Fossil Fuels



We can always go back to the good ole days.

These have served well for hundreds of years (thousands, in the case
of transportation by horse). No Arabian oil necessary. I also found
out that clipper ships are alive and well in China (Fujian province...
not sure if I spelled that correctly)

We could all become fossil fuel . . . eventually.

How primitive!

You like sailing ships? Check this out.

The stagecoach is pretty cool, too. The Pensylvania Dutch
(The Quakers) have that stuff down to a science, and they
seem to do just fine.

Cheers,

The Pennsylvania Dutch aren't necissarily Quaker. They're not even all one
religion. And the other famous group you're talking about are the Amish who
do have a large population in Penn.

But, you're point is a valid one

Just for the record, the "Pennslvania Dutch" and the Quakers
are two different groups.

The "Quakers" are officially
"the Society of Friends". My understanding is that traditionally
they would meet for communal silent prayer during which members
were free to speak as the spirit moved them; the term "quakers"
came from the occasional times a member would "quake" when
inspired by divine powers. William Penn and founders of
Philadelphia (PA, USA) were members.
The Society of Friends has traditionally
been involved in causes of social justice and pacificsm.

The "Pennsylvania Dutch" are several later groups of immigrants.
These groups reject to various degrees the "worldly ways" of
this modern world, based on their interpretation of the bible.
Various sects interpret this to various degrees; e.g., some
own personal automobiles, some don't. Many (all?) will avail
themselves of modern technology when it is necessary to save
a life, but in general they have concluded that many of the
modern toys we play with are distractions from their spiritual
path. My understanding is that most "Pennsylvania Dutch" try
to avoid being involved in political issues.

Best wishes,
Mike

Yet another hydrogen troll.

Where does hydrogen come from? Don't leave out any details.

Use of hydrogen as a fuel emits a greenhouse gas many times more powerful than
the CO2 emitted by fossil fuel combustion ...

To explain, Paul Harvey is a know-it-all conservative radio news personality
who is much older, dumber, and hypocritical tham even Rush Limbaugh. I guess
I had to add a smiley to cover all possible readers.

Shhh. I'm seeking funds for research into the proper way to drill a hydrogen
well.

Like the man who claimed there must be a lot of fish in the lake because
nobody had ever caught one, I figure there must be a lot of hydrogen, under
heavy rocks to hold it down, in the earth.

And just for the record, the Amish (sometimes referred to as Pa Dutch),
live/work just fine. But a large source of income for some of them is
tourism!!! Kind of quirky, many have telephone booths on their property,
but no phone in their homes. Battery powered electric lamps in their
horse-drawn buggies, but no electric service from the grid. Exact rulings
vary somewhat from each council.
