The last few days or so, a friend I met in 2nd life pointed me to a book that she wanted me to read called "The Princess Trilogy" by Jean Sasson. Now, this book doesn't paint the Saudi Arabians in too nice of a light. In fact, its a true story and its kind of shocking. But what was interesting was, that this book is a bestseller and it is so difficult to find.
First, I couldn't find it at the big book sellers. Then I couldn't find it in the rare book sellers. I live in a city where there is 3 million people. No one. Finally I found one of the three volumes on a bookshelf near where I live.
Liquid coal is another solution to the energy problem. But isn't it just possible that this is another red herring, laid down by the Saudi interests in our government - to keep people miling about and purchasing their oil? People have seen the electric car killed off, they pay too much for hybrids, and american auto manufacturers, even to the point of driving them to near bankruptcy - continue to make gas guzzling cars that people really would prefer not to drive. Tokyo seems to be free of the grip of the Saudi lobby, and they are home to the worlds largest and most profitable automaker , that continually turns out green cars. America seems to struggle with the alternatives, hydrogen, hybrids, ethanol, electrics and now coal?
The bookstores I went to , were huge. There were thousands of books. I am beginning to wonder if the matrix has us. Liquid coal, to me, seems to be .. just short of a joke. Throwing more pollution in the air? Am I wrong? Will this be something that will be a bad move? I have learned from a long time ago that
one of the ways that bad people win the game is to rig it. Suppose liquid coal is just another dodge, like trash books that eventually end up in the bargain bin while the controversial books that would ask of us a bit more than docile submission - are 'special order only'.
Is liquid coal a shill for the saudis? Will it die, because it is made to die , as a possible source of fuel. Or is it for real? Can someone help me with this. I can't seem to put the pieces together..
