Comment on Fuel Cell Vehicle Myth Ten – Elon Musk’s “Hydrogen is BS” by Simon Hillhttp://www.greenoptimistic.com/2014/08/05/fuel-cell-vehicle-myth-ten-hydrogen-bs/#comment-47324 Thu, 22 Jan 2015 03:27:00 +0000 http://www.greenoptimistic.com/?p=48761#comment-47324 The automakers are producing fuel cell vehicles because the hydrogen will come from fossil fuels. Elon is content on charging Tesla’s batteries with the solar panels on supercharger stations and people’s roofs. Fuel cells are just a way for big oil to keep it’s toes in the game. Short term thinking. Thermodynamics and sustainable hydrogen production are just too at odds with each other at the moment to make it the environmentally green choice. Fuel cells will probably replace batteries one day, but only once we have solved the issue of cheap sustainable hydrogen production and storage. Elon is a realist. He makes shit happen with what’s available TODAY.

Comment on Polish Company Offers Electric Bus with Fuel Cell Option by palmerbeepee1http://www.greenoptimistic.com/2015/01/18/polish-company-offers-electric-bus-fuel-cell-option/#comment-47266 Mon, 19 Jan 2015 17:14:00 +0000 http://www.greenoptimistic.com/?p=51362#comment-47266 AN OVER SIMPLIFICATION:
Inasmuch as Diesel Engines, particularly in Buses, are already fuel efficient on a cost/profit basis, and Diesels were originally designed to operation of Veggie Fuel (peanut oil), AND new Diesel, A/C and D/C Electric motor (and thereby Diesel Generator) technology represents an ‘untold’ quantum leap into the future of both commercial/domestic transportation, AND given that the Diesel Engine already has nearly 100% of the ‘commercial’ market: Has ‘anybody’ given any thought to the development, production and refinement distribution of “100% Veggie Fueled” Electric Buses; whereas a high output, air cooled, Diesel Generator would alternate between; 1) Rejuvenating lithium ion batteries; and 2) Providing back-up electric motor power, thereby “Extending” the overall driving range by the actual size of the Veggie Fuel Tank? Veggie Fuel production should be almost completely without waste and pretty much organic – or it should not be allowed. All future transportation manufacturing should be produced of materials considered to be “100% industry specific recycleable materials” dedicated to that industry (an entirely ‘new industry’ creating thousands of jobs).

1) Cars, because of Rudolph Diesel and Nikola Tesla, cars are
inexplicably tied to oil. In fact we
have enough knowledge to also rid ourselves of oil’s residual products such as
plastics used in so many cars, AND (not that I’m ‘smarter than the avg. bear’)
but ALL materials, ‘all’, should be ‘dedicated’ as recyclable-specific to the
auto industry. Look up how much
auto-scrap metal is EXPORTED, practically all to be re-used to mfr future autos
that will be imported and purchased by Americans; and

2) Organics such as produce, cotton, packaging, AND “VEGGIE
FUELS” (i.e. corn, or ANY veg that produces ‘oil’) should have been pushed into
play in a ‘wholesale’ effort spear-headed by the Feds. Just look at the Reclamation Act of 1902 and
understand the real power of the Feds (to do the right thing – when business
won’t).

Could we ever have automobile transportation that’s predominantly
‘organic’? 50 years ago, I would say,
no. In today’s world, I say no, but for
entirely stupid reasons because the technology is at our feet. Oil and Banking, Oil and Banking, Oil and
Banking. . . . .we can shorten it to ‘money, money, money’. Remember. . . . ‘man’ invented money. . . .and man has flawed judgment
(when it comes to decisions involving money vs ‘what’s best for the World or it’s
people’).

But maybe they should be. Electricity at 12 cents per kilowatt hour equates to about 5 cents per mile to drive electric. Gasoline at $2.50 per gallon is TWICE that per mile for a car getting 25 mpg. The average gasoline price in 2014 was 3.437, that’s nearly 14 cents per mile.

The purchase of Diesel, Hybrids, and EVs will drop in accordance with the drop in gasoline prices. Sure, we all enjoy lower prices-at-the-pump (when it’s happening), but we should all by now, be able to ‘read between the lines’. If J.D. was a billionaire when gasoline was 16.9 p/gal, what makes anyone think that this worldwide consortium would voluntarily relinquish it’s grip on the world’s economy? I believe that the oil drilling, refinery and distribution technology should be Federalized and, in turn giving/returning the “Authority” to the industry to guide that industry into more alternative fuels for ‘alternative’ non-internal combustion engines and ensuing technologies. If John David or Fred were alive today, they would understand that they have enough money, and would turn there efforts toward the new frontier – population explosion, increased domestic transportation needs, and realistic limits of oil production.

Comment on Future Volkswagen Electric Vehicles to Triple Their Range by palmerbeepee1http://www.greenoptimistic.com/2015/01/01/future-volkswagen-electric-vehicles-to-triple-their-range/#comment-46870 Sun, 04 Jan 2015 16:11:00 +0000 http://www.greenoptimistic.com/?p=51051#comment-46870 LoneWolf, long time. . . .Driving range is determined by the ‘size of the fuel tank’. Once an ‘Extender’ (as GM calls it) or ‘OnBoard TDI, AirCooled, Generator’ is added to ANY Electric Vehicle, a huge difference in ‘driving range’ will result. And, of course, my concept of a Diesel Generator also supposes a 100% Veggie Fuel. High-tech lithium-ion, carbon-fiber, magnesium and aluminum alloys notwithstanding, I favor using Existing Technologies based upon Nikola’s and Rudolph’s based Engine/Motors and TDI Diesel designs. EV’s must become ‘independent’ of the A/C Power Grid, altogether. . . period. Lithium-ion batteries would be pressed into the role of ‘backup/startup’ and maintained (just as today’s 12VDC vehicle batteries are) using my new onboard Extenders or Generators.

Its really a type of ultracapacitor. I invented the same thing in the mid nineties but couldn’t find funding for my project. They are calling it an all electron battery since the term ultracapcitor doesn’t get as much respect do to their track record. Since it eliminates lithium it wont cost as much. Hopefully they will license it to other car companies and the whole world can change over to perovskite electric powered cars.

But hey, many of us are in the north where it’s cold and we need cheap heat. In S. Cal, I wouldn’t need anything (I was born there). Really, so far, it doesn’t seem very cost effective. Tampons in a coffee can with some alcohol would be a better idea (really).

After an hour or so the pot is heating up (only one pot). I tried a second one as instructed, but it has no effect except to “smother” any heat from pot #1; it would take ages and many candles to heat up the 2nd I fear. I am from Alaska, and I think in the end, this could be useful – not sure yet. It reminds me of the year of the Alaska oil spill; as it happened, I was driving by in Yukon when the temp was -60 without wind chill. When driving, the wind chill dropped further and literally froze the gasoline in the lines from the rear tank trying to get to the front carb. I stopped and had to build a little fire under the gas lines – quickly. I, and my pissed off girlfriend were able to make it to the next roadhouse where we didn’t buy gas, we bought alcohol – about a gallon of it and put it in the tank – then it worked pretty good. However, we were freezing inside and the windshield kept icing up – on the inside. So, I – being prepared for these things – pulled out a coffee can, asked her for a tampon, pulled out a bottle of alcohol and put them both in the coffee can and lit it – inside the van – and put it on the dash board. This thawed out the windshield ice so I could see and we were able to take turns warming our hands with the flame too. We made it. Evidently, several people froze to death on the Alaska highway and even down to Wyoming on the interstate during that cold front (called the Alaska blaster). I had troubles all the way down to Denver, but not as bad as Yukon. I was pretty wacked out, but alive. God bless alcohol.

Anyway, I am in Ohio without any heat in my house and am trying to be creative in heating it up with and without my fireplace in an effort to minimize gas and electrical alternatives (getting it hooked up next week). Been living with my fireplace alone all winter so far though. As long as it’s not -60 below I don’t care. It’s free. ;)

Comment on EVs and Biofuel Powered Cars Worse for the Environment? by palmerbeepee1http://www.greenoptimistic.com/2014/12/24/evs-and-biofuel-powered-cars-worse-for-environment/#comment-46828 Tue, 30 Dec 2014 05:20:00 +0000 http://www.greenoptimistic.com/?p=50897#comment-46828 Hi, Ari Luis Halos,

I’m from another planet, and I profess that Rudolph Diesel’s invention, running on peanut oil, was so astounding that it has captured virtually 100% of the ‘commercial’ transportation industry. And has done so, even after being converted to burning petroleum-based fuel of only 40 octane – which according to my Alien math, should be 1/2 the environmental impact of 80+ octane gasolines once burned off into our atmosphere. And that Rudolph Diesel’s invention also powers EVERY commercial B/U generator on this planet, which speaks to it’s ‘reliability’.

Further, another observation from my planet, has revealed in irony that todays ‘EV Standard’, has been named for Nikola Tesla, who died just before the Roswell incident and thus never had the benefit of today’s low voltage DC, LED, and Fiber Optic, etc. technology, that only Mr. Tesla’s thinking could improve today’s Tesla EV’s overall concept by incorporating a simple onboard, air cooled, TDI Diesel Generator/Extender to extend the driving range to the limit of it’s fuel tank – and the fuel would of course be 100% veggie fuel.

No offense to J.D. and Fred, but the time has come to wean domestic transportation off of OIL and the A/C GRID. A 100% Veggie Fueled commercial AND domestic transportation system IS feasible based upon the 100% Diesel powered commercial transportation system already in place. Only the elimination of high level crude oil refineries (due to lowered consumption), and of course a specialized increase in a new agricultural industry would have to prevail (with jobs, jobs, jobs galore).

The above, adopted on a large scale, would literally eliminate all environmental concerns because we would be ‘burning’ and replanting our fuel plantings organically, as opposed to drilling, extracting, refining a product to be simply ‘burned-off’ into the environment. Only a visitor could think this way.

Sadly, I don’t think that in the developed nations people are willing to spend the time, nor get their hands dirty to run that type of biogas plant. But. I do agree that the efficiency of these Chinese methods is so far ahead of the developed nations – so called “advanced” biogas plants.

And they put this graph in it, and all of the colors are virtually identical! And when you say the graph is of purchase price plus fuel over time, well, unless you’re not driving the vehicle anymore, the lines better all go up! Thank you for pointing out to everyone how ridiculous it is to presume these gas prices that Americans have enjoyed ALL WEEK, will become the new normal. Especially over the period of time one should be considering when buying a car. You still should really try to wrap your head around what 114MPGe means. Because that doesn’t change with gas prices. And if hydrogen becomes the new big thing, guess what?, you can make power plants that use that non-polluting fuel source to generate the electricity to charge my LEAF! Those could be used to supplement the existing 17% wind power produced locally.

Comment on How to Convert Your Car to Solar in One Easy Step by palmerbeepee1http://www.greenoptimistic.com/2014/12/12/convert-car-solar-one-easy-step-hint-might-spray/#comment-46810 Sat, 13 Dec 2014 15:06:00 +0000 http://www.greenoptimistic.com/?p=50670#comment-46810 Mila, here’s the deal. Solar is not the issue, rather DC vs AC. If we could check with Nikola Tesla, he would probably change all of Elon Musk’s ‘Tesla’ automobiles to DC. The Tesla Auto are propelled by a 240v AC ‘EngineMotor’. Further, it is our fantasy to convert Solar (from DC) to AC in order to the support the residential AC power grid. When we consider that the average home can easily be converted to DC, AC electricity as we know it, attempting residential Solar is folly using the DC to AC conversion.

It’s as simple as VHS vs BetaMax (research why VHS won out). Big business needs AC, but those same purveyors, could make scads of money on DC as well (since ‘seed’ money is not a problem for them – though imagination is, however). Low voltage DC technologies, particularly in regard to AC/DC electric motors, has already begun to transform industry and the way we live. Remember ‘continuous duty’ was a term reserved for AC motors, and this is no longer the case.

Comment on Study: Underground Hydrogen Storage is Cheapest, but Hard to Implement by J. Matthishttp://www.greenoptimistic.com/2014/12/11/study-underground-hydrogen-storage-cheapest-hard-implement/#comment-46809 Sat, 13 Dec 2014 15:02:00 +0000 http://www.greenoptimistic.com/?p=50664#comment-46809 Under ground storage of hydrogen and carbon dioxide is a bad idea on a geologically active planet. There is no way to predict the stability of the surrounding area. Either option is just plain disturbing to say the least. Hydrogen is stored best combined with another element such as carbon and better yet with oxygen. Carbon dioxide can be dwelt with in much the same way. There are natural processes that work very well for the sequestering of carbon dioxide. Hydrogen is an excellent fuel for the future but also is highly energy dependent meaning it takes energy to break the bond where it is combined with another element. This is all 8th grade science. The cost to generate hydrogen from water is a fairly solid figure, one could use this established point to eliminate the cost of production. (cost being the energy required to break the bonds holding the molecule together) The key is to extract energy or work from the process of hydrogen production and use this energy to feed back into the production of additional hydrogen. The concept is simple: energy into the process is a set amount with a set amount of production as a result. So in order to change or increase the amount produced you have to increase the power inputted to the process. Think about it this way normally 2+2=4 but in hydrogen production 2+2=3 because you use or loose part of of what you started out with during the process. (it has a cost) Now here is the question “can the thermodynamic losses associated with the production of hydrogen via electrolysis be off set or eliminated?” The answer of course is no, the losses will always exist. This equation is pretty much set in stone. So here is your answer….. expand your equation. The production process or equation does not need to stop there it needs additional steps to make it more efficient and maybe even over efficient. Hydrogen represents energy potential on many levels. We know we can burn it either in a application that produces heat or electricity by oxidizing it. What I’m telling you is the produced hydrogen represents additional potential energy prior to using it. Imagine a tanker truck full of gaseous hydrogen, now imagine that same tanker under 100 ft of water. That tanker truck wants to rise to the surface and the power or force it will exert to do so is based upon the water displacement. There is a tremendous amount of potential energy there, simply put the amount of water the gas filled tanker displaces is the same amount of weight or water it will lift outside the water. So now I’ve lifted a large weight that can drive a generator and produce additional energy and additional energy equals additional hydrogen. So with the same amount of energy required to produce a set amount of hydrogen I have produced the hydrogen and additional energy that will produce additional hydrogen. Did I break the laws of thermodynamics? Can I use the produced hydrogen in additional stages to make even more energy that can be used to make even more hydrogen? Of course I can.

Comment on Wind Turbines Only Annoying, Not Dangerous for Health, Says MIT by palmerbeepee1http://www.greenoptimistic.com/2014/12/11/wind-turbines-annoying/#comment-46808 Fri, 12 Dec 2014 16:27:00 +0000 http://www.greenoptimistic.com/?p=50667#comment-46808 Funny story: About 15yrs ago, a Wind Farm in Tracy California, was responsible for the death of a Bird of Prey (Peregrine Falcon, I believe). The Animal Rights groups and others quickly went into action, causing a massive suspension of the PG&E contract, until the issue of ‘bird safety’ was addressed. Though the contract was suspended, the electricity was not, thus, PG&E collected electricity at no cost during the period of suspension. Of course the contract was resumed, I think on the strength that, through other conservation efforts, the bird of prey population had dramatically increased during the Wind Farm’s existence. I don’t recall whether PG&E was ever back-charged for the period of free electric (they probably could have given at rebate (2 cents) to all their customers). Remember, utility companies are given ‘The Authority’ to operate, therefore, there are contracted ‘operations’ between the utility company and the State or other businesses or industries. Seldom would an electric utility manufacture and install a Wind Farm, at least not completely.

to clean it out. If you have a secondary filter as well as the under gravel
filter put that in place now. Position your heater at the back of the tank at

As a youngster, I tinkered and literally took everything apart, out of curiosity. . . that’s when I discovered ‘light transfer’ without loss of illumination, and without ‘heat’ through ‘fiber optics’ (before there WAS fiber optics). It was in a 1958 or 60-ish Cadillac. The car had little miniature exterior, fender-mounted turn-signal, headlight, and high-beam, lighted indicators. You see, I had to take it apart. I was ‘curious’ about this ‘tiny exterior bulb’, it’s colored lense and it’s wiring. Well, to my surprise there was no bulb or wiring, instead the dashboard turn-signal indicator, a standard 12v light (the source) transferred it’s illumination (without loss), with twists and turns through the cars firewall, under the hood, and through the steal fender, to be terminated in that ‘colored lense’ indicator (the destination) on the exterior of the appropriate fender, and all three indicator lenses for each fender (L or R) were terminated in the same uniform fashion. The ‘media’ was 8-10 fiber optic strands (wrapped opaque).

Pretty simple concept for the 1950-60’s. We also had L.E.D.’s back then as well (but that another story). But you have to admit, the concept of transferring ‘light’ or illumination, without heat or loss of illumination 15 feet or 15 miles is very interesting. . . . . Now all we really need is a ‘virgin’ to drop into the volcano, as a sacrifice to appease the A/C Grid ‘Powers that be’. Lord knows we don’t want to light an entire room with one light source terminated very simply through as many ‘magnified’ lenses, as we please – and that ‘one light source’ will undoubtedly be a flourescent, because after 50 yrs we’ve finally started phasing-out incandescent bulbs . . . . . and that probably took a 50 yr old virgin.

With some knowledge of water engineering and irrigation (Water in the West), I’m a serious advocate of 100% Veggie Diesel fuel refinement, particularly since the Diesel was designed to use peanut oil as it’s principle fuel.  With Elon Musk’s Tesla completely ignoring the Diesel, it’s ironic that though Nikola Tesla and Rudolph Diesel were born only two years apart, if either where alive today – our collective heads would be spinning.  Just think of how today’s greatest minds and/or ‘innovators’, pale by comparison, as they have (almost accidentally) developed today’s “Engine Motors” and Domestic Diesel (versus ‘Commercial Diesel’) technologies – but still can’t see their way clear enough to merge those two technologies.

If I had to explain this to an Alien, it’s so simple, I’d be embarrassed.

If you want to go by the numbers, it’s not just the shorter word “vegans”  who are missing out on the fun, it’s mostly vegetarians. If I wanted to go by the numbers, it’s probably meat eaters who are missing out too, with the current choice of dry-meat high-weight modern hybrids raised in conditions I wouldn’t wish on my stepmother. In a way, it looks much more valuable to me to support humanely farm-raised heritage breeds and their farmers, than to encourage industrial farming abuse by providing an outlet for the worst farms.
By all means, rescue the abused birds from these farms, but they should probably still be raised for human consumption as the breed was meant to. That “feel good” feeling works only for a few birds named Naomi or Julia, not really when you have hundreds of anonymous birds rescued from a single farm, multiplied by several farms each year. I’d rather invest my money in supporting decent farmers and prosecuting abusive ones, so that there are no birds to rescue in the first place.

Comment on Dean Kamen's Stirling Engine Hybrid Scooter Runs on Anything by schultzybecketthttp://www.greenoptimistic.com/2009/07/01/dean-kamen-stirling-engine-scooter/#comment-45033 Sat, 15 Nov 2014 12:14:43 +0000 http://www.greenoptimistic.com/?p=3883#comment-45033 The startups are taking various approaches. Alt-E, based in Auburn Hills,
MI, plans to gut conventional vehicles, replacing the engine with a combination
of electric motor, battery packs, electronic controls, and a gasoline
generator. So far the company has raised about $28 million from individual
investors and in government funding.

While the scale of
conversions will be limited, these companies could serve to prod major
automakers to offer a greater variety of these vehicles, say some automotive
analysts.

Basically that means that one cubic inch of water when converted to steam will occupy 1,700 cubic inches of space.

Comment on Video of a Working Homemade Linear Magnetic Motor by tulameenhttp://www.greenoptimistic.com/2012/03/14/linear-magnetic-motor/#comment-44997 Fri, 14 Nov 2014 22:39:43 +0000 http://www.greenoptimistic.com/?p=23287#comment-44997 I personally know beyond doubt that permanent magnet motors function. Read the history on Tesla…..his motor is a permanent magnet motor. Later he received in a flash inspiration the principle of the AC electric motor. I have personally witnessed a permanent magnet motor functioning. 
There was strong reason why the government siezed Tesla’s work to keep them secret and continue to mock and debunk the very motors they use  secretly. 

If you stick with the basic principles it is certain to work.

Comment on DIY: How to Build a Solar Furnace from a Satellite Dish by jaytoolman92http://www.greenoptimistic.com/2008/09/08/how-to-build-solar-furnace-satellite-dish/#comment-44898 Thu, 13 Nov 2014 22:25:08 +0000 http://www.greenoptimistic.com/?p=815#comment-44898 This looks really interesting. I think that the dish might be concentrating the heat a little too much. Wouldn’t the solar panels be burnt from the sun’s magnification? I think I will probably stick with a more traditional heater until this technology is refined a little more. http://www.capefearair.com/heating.php

Almost everything in the domestic home, that is plugged into an AC outlet is internally converted to “low-voltage DC” (as is the computer I’m using).  Incandescent lights are engineered to use AC (and to also burn-out), but should have been replaced by low voltage DC L.E.D.s long ago.

While Solar is always the way to go, there is no reason that Direct Solar can’t be used to power ANYTHING that’s DC.  That simply means moving away from today’s mind numbing practice of converting Solar DC to AC, to be converted back to DC (to run modern day appliances).

I thought these could be work for East or West oriented vertical windows too, to capture solar energy at sunrise or sunset, but if they work only on infrareds, there’s probably not much of them at these times of the day. So they seem to be limited to well exposed surfaces, like rooftops, and I am not sure at all they won’t be uglier than the current generation of panels. Anyway, what’s the efficiency rate? It it’s capturing only infrareds, isn’t it a very limited range of wavelengths, compared with the current developments that try to capture broader ranges?

Note that a company can never be the inventor, but rather an assignee or owner of the patent. The battery charging patents are quite interesting…
