US NAVY TURNS SEAWATER INTO FUEL…HELLO ANYONE THERE?

May 18, 2015

The US Navy has built a prototype that extracts CO2 from seawater while simultaenously producing H2.  Those gases are then converted to liquid hydrocarbons by a metal catalyst in a reactor system.  Ok, so if the first two sentences of this blog article didn't drop your jaw to the ground then the fact that the liquid powered an internal combustion engine should.  They are now moving to a full-scale commercial implementation.  Why is this not on the cover of Times?  I get local news is too dumb to grasp the gravity of this accomplishment, but why are scientists around the world not planning a ticker tape parade?  Hello…Anyone there? This is huge!
