Yesterday I blogged about the wider context behind the USA’s seemingly chaotic and contradictory policies in the Middle East, which appear to be to create as much chaos as possible by inflaming internal and traditional divisions in the Islamic world in order to weaken its most powerful states, and to manage the transition to new energy systems, which are, I suspect, the big and most significant context by which to interpret recent geopolitical events. A sudden release of new energy technologies, without such a commensurate weakening of those states, would conceivably drive them into precipitate and dangerous actions in order to protect their power if, say, a method were contrived to outflank or replace petroleum. Creating chaos, and keeping those states embroiled in it, allows the transition to a new energy paradigm to be more easily managed, while at the same time creating the conditions for the removal of some truly odious regimes and characters.
In that light, consider this very important article from our friends at phys.org, shared by Mr. K.H., who, in his email to me, qualified it as a “game changer.” I concur with him. Read the article, and see if you do too:
The meat of the article is contained in the following paragraphs, and note the connection of the process to planned experiments involving the use of solar power for the reaction’s light source:
A team of University of Texas at Arlington chemists and engineers have proven that concentrated light, heat and high pressures can drive the one-step conversion of carbon dioxide and water directly into usable liquid hydrocarbon fuels.
