John Kennedy said “We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.
It is for these reasons that I regard the decision last year to shift our efforts in space from low to high gear as among the most important decisions that will be made during my incumbency in the office of the Presidency.”
And that began what is arguably the single greatest achievement of mankind and launched us into a new era. I have had a thought today that I think could be the next greatest achievement if we want to take it and it looks like we already know enough to get it done in the same sort of time frame as going to the moon. That took 8 years from those words.
It is not a new thought that I had but one I have had for years. Maybe even before John Kennedy spoke those words. One of the things that we dream about is low cost energy. Abundant, low cost and safe. When I was in school we talked about nuclear energy and being able to run our cars on it. To run our cars on something other than gasoline. I mean, gasoline was expensive. It cost almost $0.25 cents per gallon!!
Ok, here is the thought. We need to perfect a way to run our cars on water. Water. It contains hydrogen and oxygen and I have been doing a little looking on the web about HHO or Browns gas. There is enough anecdotal evidence that would show we already know how to do this on the inventor scale. I have seen what looks like a dune buggy running on this gas. I have seen small engines running on it too. At least it looks like that is the case. Now it appears there are lots of scams out there too but that is to be expected but it appears that we have something that works.
What we need now is unfettered entrepreneurial and engineering expertise to make it a reality. I think it should be possible to make a device that retrofits to vehicles for less than $500 each and allows us to fill our tanks with water and run it for hundreds of miles. I certainly don’t carry the same weight with my words that JFK carried with his but there might be someone out there that does and just maybe they read this and make a statement and we are off to the races.
Can you imagine how strong we would be if we had that sort of technology? Oil prices would be irrelevant and everything would change overnight. Water?! Maybe that is what God intended for us to use anyway. That might explain why our world is 70% water.
Well, that’s the thought and I would love to hear what some of you think. Have a great weekend.
It’s a good life,
- Don't be surprised.
- I want to show you something!!
