    After you do, I'll explain to you how fracing works and how they filter the water used for a frac job and reintroduce it into the environment.
    there's really no need to do that. Instead, try and figure out how the reintroduction rate would never be 100% of the water used.

    Obvioulsy, had I not been looking at net usage, the numbers for Oil would be much much higher than 2.1-5.4 gallons per gallon.

    No my idea of a long-term solution is electric cars and mass transit. But diesel biofuel is a promising interim alternative to costly wars and shedding blood for oil in the middle east.

    BTW, I would like to to see your evidence that cars that run on biodiesel get 34% less milage than the US fleet average.

    Nice job failing.

    Oh and something that uses oil can't exactly replace it...........just sayin'



    Also this line is beyond stupid. As this moron should be aware companies would charge far less if it wasn't for the government, but alas, that is not something he wants to mention.
    Companies charge what they CAN, based on competition.....unless they act in collusion. Would oil companies do that?

    So what would you do if you were Acme Brick?

    That's right! You would liquidate your company, and then invest in a new Albanian Brick Company that happened to be starting up. You'd offer your services in getting the product to market, marketing...

    Good job Catz, you succeeded in doing nothing.

    Try thinking through ideas before posting them.
    and when enough jobs are gone, we have far fewer Americans with jobs, or money, so they don't use brick any more....

    Try thinking through ideas before posting them.

    What do you use 100 watt bulbs for anyway? An interrogation room?
    I don't I use 60 watt.. What gives the government the right to make my choices for me? Letcapitalism work if the new light bulbs are so great the old bulbs will go the way of the 8 track. The government will force us which means I will get stubborn and stock up

    Or how about the fact most mirrors used to use mercury for the reflective coating ( just tell your kids not to lick the back of mirrors.

    Or that older termometers used mercury, and how many people played with the mercury when they broke.

    Getting worked up about a broken CFL is being paranoid, your health is at risk far more by bad eating habits then by a couple of broken CFL's.

    All you need to do is get the kids out of the house, open up the windows put a fan to blow the air away from the CFL and vacuum up the stuff. Any trace mercury will evaporate within a short period of time and having the air circulating will dilute it enought to keep you healthy

    Of course I work with far more toxic items on a daily basis so I might be biased against insane levels of safety
    Do you bring those chemicals home? We do not need mercury in our house

    Remember mercury was added to gasoline for decades. It is in the coal that is burnt at power plants and emitted into the atmosphere, it is leaching into the rivers and lakes from industrial run off.

    A minute amount of mercury released from breaking a CFL is not going to polute your home for years to come. Just kick your kids out of the house for a few hours as you clean it up and things will be fine

    (remember your kids probably have a mountfull of mercury as it is from the filling they get from the dentist.)
    Why are you bringing up things no longer used. We should have learned from the past and should keep mercury out of our homes.
