Default . Cash is trash .

Hi John Bailo ,

Are you saying that it's good to be holding cash right now ,
while the price of oil has been soaring ?

Cash is trash ,
It's better to invest in real assets ...

If you can find a market that's not about to pop .

Cash, liquidity, are floating upward.

If you aren't in the market -- you're losing money.

There's inflation all right -- the people who are in the New Hydrogen
Economy will be the 21st century trillionaires.

Bill Gates is already a pauper.

So is the price of caviar and rare gems.

Oil is no longer necessary.

Hydrogen is cheap and plentiful.

People will soon buy pints of oil to be used as curios and decoration in
the home.

Default . Losing it all ... Yet again .

Hi John Bailo , You dream ,
" the people who are in the New Hydrogen
Economy will be the 21st century trillionaires " ,

Or more likely ,
you'll bust your piggy bank and invest those pennies
in some fly-by-night hi-tech scheme ,
losing it all ... Yet again .

Default . Dirtier than oil .

Hi John Bailo , You suggest ,
" Oil is no longer necessary .
Hydrogen is cheap and plentiful . "

As the Spooky Ghost will tell you ,
oil is Thee best way to store and use energy .

Hydrogen fuel is far too expensive ,
too bulky , and too dangerous .

What's more , it's Dirtier than oil ,
because of all the energy it takes to make it ,
and for other reasons as well .

Don't read much do you...


At this time - but I was just reading today about some break throughs
that may make cheap hydrogen a real possability. Scientists have been
looking at how plants separate hydrogen from water - and they think they
are finally on to something.

If they are able to pull that off, and replicate this process - then
that means there is no storage problem, because all you need is a water
tank...

Unfounded assertions.

Eventually, the water converter will be the source.


Idiocy.

Hi John Bailo ,

Re: How oil as the best way to store energy ,
You ask , " Better than water ? " ,

There's no way to get energy from water .

Hydrogen fuel is not water .
