    what's happened to your entreprenurial spirit?

    Since hubby's a nuclear stress engineer I'm expecting him to earn 2-3 times more than I currently am....

    And there's less likelyhood of outsourcing this bit of work to Chenobyl...

    Let the good times roll!

          I'm not sure all the required technical solutions are there.

          We need better batteries to power cars and larger road vehicles over as long distances and comparable grunt as petrol currently does.

              Soon???? It has been argued since the beginning of the 19th Century, Alexander von Humboldt and Louis Joseph Gay-Lussac both knew the biological origin of oil theory was most likely tosh. The temperatures and pressures required to form the hydrocarbons found in oil mean they simply cannot be created in the sedimentary rocks the reservoirs are located in as the biological origin theory proposes - they would be metamorphosed if subjected to that regime.

              The modern abiotic oil theory was expounded in the 1950's and is widely accepted by metallurgists, geologists are a little slow to accept it as the current model has located most of the present oil reserves known in the world today. However the aboitic theory ALSO explains the presence of these deposits, for example the gulf states and also explains deposits such as the Dnieper-Donetsk Basin which is NOT explained by the biological origin theory.

                      Increase them tenfold to discourage extraction. Firstly, it will be worth more later, secondly, that would encourage exploration.
