What do you think are the pros and cons of using alternative fuel for all automobiles?
This is a thing for my debate class. What in your opinion are the pros and cons of this? Thanks!
If you synthesize actual real gasoline and real diesel from biomass by gasification to a synthesis gas (hydrogen and carbon monoxide) which can then synthesize any hydrocarbon length you want in a Fischer Tropsch reactor then the fuel could be delivered by existing distribution networks and used in existing cars. This will benefit the environment as the fuel would then be carbon negative because some of the carbon will be sequestered with the ash by-product of the gasification process.
You can even make syngas directly from CO2 and H2O as Sandia Labs does with their CR5 reactor. Nothing more carbon neutral than making real gasoline and real diesel directly from sunlight, CO2 and water.
Any technology that requires you to buy a new car will harm the environment because it takes 113 million BTU’s to build a new car. You have to drive a new Prius 100,000 miles before it’s more eco-friendly than a second hand Tercel.
This means that electric vehicles, hydrogen fuel cell, flex fuel and hybrid are not environmentally friendly since they are a marketing brand to encourage people to buy a new car. They are just the modern version of the tail fin, just as SUV’s, mini-vans, station wagons, and model years were all introduced to create more demand for new vehicles so are electric, hydrogen, ethanol and hybrids.
Bio-diesel is an odd one cause existing diesel cars can use bio-diesel but there are few existing diesel cars in north america so effectively it’s encouraging the purchase of new cars too.
There’s nothing wrong with gasoline and diesel except that they are made from fossil reserves. They can easily be made from anything that burns including dried sewage with technology dating to the 19th century (gasifiers was how we lit streets before we had natural gas and Fischer Tropsch dates back to the 1920′s) so there’s no need for gasoline and diesel to be harmful to our environment other than our fear of high fuel prices (fossil oil is cheap).
What Lap Top on the market should I Buy?
I cant decide between a Mac Pro 15 with Retina Display, and the new Acer thin lap top. I want the computer with the most advanced software, more features, and overall the most advanced technology. Please give me facts and just a bit of opinions. Thanks.
My first advice is to see some Expert Reviews yourself on CNET.com , a great source for Technology Information Online. That’s a good place to start I think. Personally I’ve only had one laptop, the one I have right now, a 2009 MacBook Pro. Very happy with it and take it with me to use with wifi a lot in town. Before getting the laptop I used desktops, had 3 computers networked together ~ 2 Dells & 1 Gateway. So I was used to using a Windows-based system for years.
The 2009 switch to Apple / MacBook Pro was different, and took a bit of time to learn different software, yet at the time I had an iPhone & iPod so every devise sync-ed very well together.
Do some investigation online at CNET.com and you’ll be surprised what you learn.
how to connect my sony ericsson xperia mini pro to the internet without wifi?
I got my sony ericcson xperia mini pro x10 for christmas but I cant access the internet without using Wi-Fi which is fine when I’m at home but when I go out I like to use my phones internet (I have unlimited internet on my contract) and I cant seem to get it! What do I do?
We recommend you to first make sure with your service provider that GPRS services are available for your subscription. For some Operators in some markets, the preloaded settings are missing. In this case you need to download these settings manually. The internet service is a network depending feature, which means that even though we manufacture a brand of phones they are responsible of setting the service up for you.
If you prefer to set it up manually you will need the configuration settings (APN, User ID, Password, IP address, etc) specific for your service provider.
1. Press Menu> Settings> Wireless and networks> Mobile networks.
2. Check Data enabled.
3. Press Access point names.
4. Press Menu> New APN.
5. Introduce the relevant information that you previously received from your Operator.
