Greetings Bob Fancy meeting you here! LOL! What a world, eh? It sure does have its brighter moments.
Folks, this young feller Bob Molloy and I worked together at the Cape Times in Cape Town 27 years ago just before I left South Africa, and it was a real delight to get an email from him a few days ago, after all this time. He used to live in a cottage all by itself on one of the more beautiful beaches in the world. Four years ago when we started this project we were living on another of the more beautiful beaches in the world. http://journeytoforever.org/about.html (But Hout Bay's better! And so was your cottage - the Beach House on Lantau was a ramshackle old wreck.) >Jumping in here as a total newbie (and in reply to the Kim and Garth Travis >on the best bolthole during the coming Ice Age) why not think of New >Zealand? The world's best kept secret is an English-speaking high-tech >liberal democracy located on a group of three major islands in the Pacific, >with a population of four million in a land area the size of the British >Isles (pop. 60m). Green, clean and pristine, with scenery to die for - Lord >of the Rings was shot here - the climate ranges from semi-tropical to >temperate. You're right, by all accounts. That movie had Americans calling their travel agencies trying to book a holiday in Rivendell. And now you've gone and told them where it is! >Bob. >PS: forget bio-diesel, look at methane gas. A clean burning fuel that runs >any petrol engine with but minor modifications, easily transported in old >rubber car tubes, is available free from any city garbage dump (and your own >household septic tank if you have one) and can be generated in your own >backyard by digging a large hole and filling it with animal/human faeces >and/or green vegetation.

But you don't see people doing it, do you? Lots of people visit those pages, lots of inquiries all the time about Bate's chicken car, but it never seems to go any further. Same with woodgas: http://journeytoforever.org/at_woodfire.html#woodgas Millions of vehicles used woodgas in Europe and elsewhere in WW2, but now? A few demos, that's all. Anyway, don't forget biodiesel, nor any of these technologies - it's often said here that there's no one-size-fits-all solution for biofuels, bio-energy or alternative/renewable energy, a rational energy future will need them all, in whatever combinations best fit the circumstances. I'm sure that's right. Regards Keith * ------------------------ Yahoo! Groups Sponsor --------------------~--> Make a clean sweep of pop-up ads. Yahoo! Companion Toolbar. Now with Pop-Up Blocker.
