A small British company has produced the first "petrol from air" using a revolutionary technology that promises to solve the energy crisis as well as helping to curb global warming by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Air Fuel Synthesis in Stockton-on-Tees has produced five litres of petrol since August when it switched on a small refinery that manufactures gasoline from carbon dioxide and water vapour.

The company hopes that within two years it will build a larger, commercial-scale plant capable of producing a ton of petrol a day. It also plans to produce green aviation fuel to make airline travel more carbon-neutral.

That is super awesome! Looks like the world is a better place already!~
 
Going from 5 litres in 2 months to 1 ton in 1 day sounds like it'll take more than just a bigger refinery.
 
How much energy does the process take?
What are the catalysts?
 
Nah we don't need that.. We have all those suppressed free energy motors thanks to the oil company.. They just killed the inventors. The government has been keeping us all those great technologies since Nikola Tesla's time.

I knew it! The second law of thermodynamics is a lie, spread by the government in order to keep people buying oil. It is time for the energy revolution! Let everyone know that increasing entropy is state enforced, and rebel!
 
I think overunity can be achieve. Yes we put power into a machine and we lose some through friction and heat and as it seems overunity is impossible. But remember, we have the magnetic pull of the earth, the radiation of the sun, and other invisible forces around us that we can harness to produce extra energy and that makes overunity achievable.

Remember the crystal radio? It can run without a battery by harnessing Radio Waves.

And there's a rumor that somewhere, a village is using a modified version of the Electrostatic Motor that produces overunity that powers up the entire village.

    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...

    I'm not so sure, there's still a lot of Thursday left for it to become unhappy.
