Alternative fuel sources seem to be gaining some momentum once again since the alleged U.S.A. gas crunch of the 1970s. Nearly 40 years later there is some traction with the big automobile makers for providing hybrid cars to consumers. While gasoline/electric hybrid vehicles are a step in the right direction one could argue we need to go further.
Hydrogen and natural gas powered cars are available but not popular. The amount of carbon emissions from fossil fuel combustion is incredible. While the world continues to search for more oil deposits in such places as the oil sands in Canada it does not solve the problem of reducing green house gas. The price of oil is causing for more research in alternative fuel types that contribute to the carbon problem or possibly help reduce carbon emissions.
One potential alternative fuel that produces greenhouse gas but may be an oil alternative is methane hydrate. This substance is located in vast supplies deep in the ocean in a frozen state. While it is well known about the hazards of nuclear reactor power generation, nuclear reactors produce their own environmental waste by product.
Think ECO and GREEN. The planet to the left is a beautiful place. I have personally seen the air pollution in Los Angeles, Rome, Athens and Beijing. The picture below is a coal fired power plant that is generating electricity and tons of carbon emissions. Everyone can make a difference. If we can solve landing on the moon we should be able to produce an ECO friendly fuel source.
