  • Jul 7 2011: iF A LINEAR INDUCTOR COULD BE BUILT IN PROGRESSION FOR POWER HOW WOULD ONE CREATE A FORUM IN COLABERATION?
  • Jul 7 2011: Count me in. Will be a beta sight.
  • Jul 7 2011: Tim, I agree, water,wind, what ever. As long as it is practical and does not need government support. Example ethenol. Thankfully the global warning religion failed under further scrutiny, ie IPCC. Another study released showed higher past co2 with lower temps. Carbon energy is not the boogie man.

    Jul 7 2011: i think it be cool if communitys just found whatever source of energy production worked for them. but SRP and APS would not like that much.
  • Jul 6 2011: I just feel that a "world" solution is not the answer. Many different needs exist between nations and demands for energy. Lets start using more of the energy we have in US. For example natural gas, which we have in abundance.
  • Jul 6 2011: Are you suggesting that the US becomes an island to itself and not concern itself with other peoples energy issues? I don't think I understand your point of view.
