Implications of a Fuel Cell Car

So Iceland has created a fuel cell car. At $8 for a gallon of gas, Icelanders must be very happy.

Supposing, in the next ten years, this technology is adopted throughout the world. The demand for gasoline is radically and dramatically reduced. Are we going to continue caring about the Middle East in quite the same way? Of course not.

And if the demand for oil is reduced, then the riches of the Arab and Persian nations will also be reduced. So the money sent to radical Islamist groups will also be reduced, as will their ability to cause trouble elsewhere in the world.

Another nation affected would be Russia. Russia is basing its current bout of hegemony on its supply of oil. Witness the threats to cut off the heat to its neighbors last winter. I always predicted that the Russian resurgence would be short-lived. Now they can focus their efforts on fighting Canada for ice flows.

A fuel cell car - imagine! I'm dying to get a new car myself, but my husband and my sister prudently are talking me out of it. One way to inspire myself to patience would be dreams of a fuel cell car THAT DOESN'T USE GASOLINE!! With leather interiors, of course. I wouldn't get a car without leather interiors.

Funny. I remember going to Epcot Center in Walt Disney World years ago. The GM attraction - then called "World Of Motion" (later changed to Test Track). Anyway, there was this whole display for a fuel cell car. This was in the mid to late 80s. They even had the prototype on display. And video of it running. And glowing predictions that a consumer version would be available in the next 10 years. By the way, 10 years would have been 1996 or 1997.

It was right next to the Chevy Suburban. GM used the attraction to, of course, plug its products. It still does.

It would be really nice to be able to tell the Arabs to "kiss my ass". That would surely change the political thing. But we are only into this short term thing with no future.

Don't you think that these kind of cars had already been invented? OOOOOO lot's of prototypes were shown from all over: Japan is the leader! And what do you think, who is the biggest opponent of such cars? The arab countries? NO! The USA? YES< YES you've got it.

Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner's wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel Saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved. Search engine optimization, Try to Be happy
