You must be a liberal-democrat. While being technically correct, your
mind isn't sophisticated enough to overlook the error and move on
without a jab instead of a reasonable retort. You feel the need to piss
people off, because you are an Obama sheeples.
Gore to hypocritical POS. Like they said, it was all about the money.
Not abbout the cause, even Obama is proving the righties on this. Obama
the talk and spend a lot promises to buy America out of debt.
LMAO. Liberals are scum.

That's your opinion.
However TODAY'S internal combustion engine is 20th century technology,
with a bit of 21st century technology coaxing it along. Or you could
say it is 21st century technology moving some 20th century
What differnetiates the 21st century internal combustion engine from
the 19th century technology it is "loosely" based on is the 21st
century controls that allow it to produce more power out of less fuel
with lower exhaust emissions than you could have drempt of, on all 3
levels, 25 to 50 years ago.
As for metal rubbing on metal????
Today's lubrication technology combined with the quality of mechanical
finish almost totally eliminates metal to metal friction at the
Is the internal combustion engine the engine of the future???
Long term, most likely not, but within our lifespan???
I'd say, for most of us, an almost unqualified YES.
Petroleum powered? Most likely, and very hopefiully - - NOT.
Cellulose based Ethanol and bio-sourced oils are most likely to be the
mid-term fuel of choice for transportation.
I envision high temperature thermally efficient ceramic engines
running on fuel derived from fast-growing algae using direct
injection, spark ignition with a combination of variable compression,
variable displacement and variable valve timing, running unthrottled
like most current deisels and pushing 70% thermal efficiency within 10
years. Mabee not totally of the "tit" of petroleum that soon - but the
basic technological advances WILL be there.
So we should trade in recyclable iron and alumium for non-degradable
plastics and ceramics?
Seems to me that th gasoline formuala is over 100 years old now. What
can be done to boost it's output and lower net consumption?
Little dr jeffy is losing his argument again so he likes to call people
names and and and be nasty as he rides the subway, types on his laptop
while using the wi-fi for free, LOL.
Little jeffy is a dr you know. LOL.
Death of the Electric Car: Li-ion Batteries Too Valuable for Plug-In
The writer of that article failed to take in to account that true electric
vehicles, once they meet their potential, will cost far less to produce than
the current gasoline powered cars.
Compare the difference in price between gas and electric weed whackers and
lawn mowers today for example.
Maybe in a long time into the future. But certainly not in the next 5
Just the lithium required for a small fleet of these anti-green plastic
cars is going to cause years of shortages and costs will spike.
Until some new undiscovered battery technology comes out, electric cars
are a fad. GM Volt is a high priced golf cart with headlights.
BTW, I bet the headlights, heaters and A/C all reduce it's safe highway
range with makes them a nuisance.
