KK, I thing the word "Vuggy" got us all running to Goggle dictionary, ........ In my mind, it nicely described the host host reservoir rock filled with cavities full of Olive oil green, low sulphur crude, that good and clean, you could nearly put it in your diesel truck without refining, pouring out at 5K bopd
CC, ha ha , isnt the whole battery thing a complete joke, I am now reading across the boards of a huge backlash against battery vehicles and the damage they are causing, a recent IEA report ..... It concludes that solar photovoltaic plants, wind farms, and battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) generally require more minerals to build than their fossil fuel-based counterparts. According to the IEA, a typical electric car requires six times the mineral inputs of a conventional car and an onshore wind plant requires nine times more mineral resources than a gas-fired plant."
CC, Hmmmmm OK you got me interested, Hydrogen power does produce Nitrogen Oxide which pound for pound is 300 times worse than CO2 at being a greenhouse gas ...... however just as we were discussing over on the CASP board, there are well established technologies to capture all this, making Hydrogen a very clean fuel.
UNC ...... electric car !!!! invention of the devil, 95% go straight to landfill, thousands of acres of pristine rain forest cut down for cobalt mines that employ child labour, 10s of thousand of miles of jungle river polluted with run off from open cast mines, all so you can sit smug driving an eco friendly electric car, now try doing some research on "Carbon capture technology" size of a catalytic converter stores all the nasty stuff in a HP CO2 cylinder to be downloaded every time you fill up, a few companies are well on with the technology BP, Schlumberger, Royal dutch etc, next time you fill up your car, have a look down the filling nozzle (Without pulling the trigger)
Lee, I dont know if ALBA are going to follow the normal mining route, if they do, its a long long long road, Exploration, discovery, scoping study, pre feasibility study, feasibility study, environmental impact study, financial study ............... and on and on and then all the planning permissions, public hearings and on and on
nookie, once climate change activist start producing misleading facts like that, the population goes into panic mode, anyone with half a brain will know exactly what an Interglacial cycle is https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/abrupt-climate-change/Glacial-Interglacial%20Cycles then I hear the total gonads that they spout about Co2 PPM and greenhouse gas and how since 1900 - 2020 its risen from 250 ppm to 350 ppm, yep no doubting it has, but what has it done since the Ordovician period, when we had such a fantastic array of flora and fauna, nearly all of which is now extinct, has it gone up from 100ppm to 350ppm or even 50ppm to 350ppm, no its dropped from 9000ppm and a climate, a massive 14c warmer than it is toady, climate activists want to create a perfect environment for human population explosion up from 1Bn in 1800 to over 7 Bn in just 300 years, that my friend is the problem
