The Solar Hydrogen Civilization
Civilization is a great book because a great man wrote it.
I have known and worked with Roy McAlister for over 10
years. He has been my true friend and mentor and I can tell you for
a fact that he is a living legend. Roy will be known in the history
of energy more prominently than Edison, Westinghouse, Tesla, Rockefeller,
Carnegie and the rest combined. Roy is an expert in Inorganic,
Organic, Electro, Thermal and Bio Chemistry, Newtonian and Quantum
Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Material Science and
Advanced Composites. He is an expert who writes, not a writer
who thinks he's an expert.
Roy has the wonderful goal to make a 1000 new millionaires a week. That
is the amount of money you can make in the hydrogen field by displacing oil
imports. This book is the beginning to understanding
some of the secrets of the energy field and its future that is happening
today as you read this.
The Million Dollar Drawing (
Roy has a wonderful saying, " Prosperity Without
Pollution." So few words say so much which are not understood
by so many. Too many in the hydrogen field just focus on the last
word. Pollution. They totally ignore the real power word in the
sentence, which is Prosperity. Roy teaches that Hydrogen creates a
wealth expansion economy. Value is created rather than just a
service being performed. When a gallon of oil is taken and the
hydrogen is removed and the carbon is used to construct buildings, wires,
aircraft and really almost anything else then both transportation and physical
goods are created. Just burning oil creates transportation, a
service, not a wealth creating product. Think of the idea of taking
aluminum and steel from a gallon of oil before you turn it into gasoline,
how much would that be worth.? Carbon replaces iron and steel and
makes the same things these metals can.
When you see the word CARBON, in any form, CO2, CO etc.. I do not want you
to think pollution or environment, I want you to thin MONEY. Anytime
you can keep your carbon, you make money. If you could trap the CO2
from your tailpipe or your furnace, you can SELL IT. There is a
world market for CO2, CO and C and this is nothing compared to what it
WILL BE in the future. Every pound of CO2, CO or C you trap you can
sell. Remember in the 1970's plastics were the future. Today,
we can say CARBON is the future. REALLY understanding the diagram to the
left, and putting yourself on one of the arrows with the Carbon word on
it, can make you a very wealthy person. To REALLY understand this,
you will have to get the book.
Hydrogen is a DANGEROUS
Journey with Mines in the Road.
Ok. You are excited about Hydrogen, about the future about the science
and the economics of it. You want to learn more and travel the road,
but it is hard, long and dangerous and it has mines in the road. Why
is it dangerous? NOT because of the Hydrogen. It
is dangerous because of the lies, myths and ignorance surrounding
the hydrogen field. These are like mines in the road.
You see a spot in the road and you don't know if its a mine or just a lump
of dirt. Roy's book tells you where the mines are in the road so you
can travel safely. There are more myths than there are truths about
hydrogen. The science is clear, the science is 200+ years old.
The lies get reinvented every year. Water cars, why the Hindenburg
burned, hydrogen safety and much more. Roy clearly and easily tells you
the myth and why it is a myth. He tells you the real science. So
when someone tries to get your money for magnets or a water car or for
something like this, you know not to waste your time and to tell them to
take a hike.
Energy Parks & the Road
to the Hydrogen Future.
The book outlines fundamental strategies and methods that are achievable
for business. The book outlines with maps and details the location
and types of energy parks. The usage of current natural gas pipe
lines, the harvesting of methane hydrates and then the harvesting of the
carbon from the methane and the piping of the hydrogen. The use of
the carbon to make ANYTHING that is around you now. The recapture of
methane from biological and agriculture by products. This gives today's
farmers a new crop to grow, energy. The book discusses and
illustrates the storage of hydrogen in underground oil and gas wells that
are currently empty. Solar hydrogen can restock the energy that was
in the ground. The real role of wind and wave energy, is it viable
or a red herring? its in the book. The future
configuration of homes with hydrogen based energy, how is the energy
obtained, used and reused. You will quickly begin to realize
that we you now think of as waste, is really a resource. The
history of the worlds largest business,. especially the chemical industry,
have started from the re-use of someone else's waste product. There
is waste around you today that are dollar signs for all of us
tomorrow. The page to the left is a classic example of the fine
graphics and illustration that enrich Roy's book. There is hardly an
open set of pages without an illustration, photograph or table. The book is
rich in content.
A Hydrogen BBQ?
Yes, a hydrogen BBQ. As we all get caught up in fuel cells
and vehicles and home power and 1000 square mile solar fields
and politics it is so easy to loose track of the simple
demonstrations and usages of hydrogen. In the middle
of every class Roy gives he provides lunch and lunch is cooked
on a Hydrogen BBQ. Some of the finest chefs in the world
have learned that cooking on hydrogen does not impart any bad
flavors into what is being cooked and since the by product of
hydrogen combustion is water vapor the food is even more moist
and flavorful. The books shows the simple basics of how to
convert a BBQ to hydrogen which emphasizes how easy home
appliances can run on hydrogen.
Most of you are not going to
understand this. You might have to read this paragraph twice, or
more. If you really understand this you will understand more about
hydrogen and the future than 99.9% of the wannabe hydrogen advocates out
there. This theme is throughout the book and most people don't see
it and say they can't see the trees because the forest is in the
way. I am very serious here, read carefully. A few examples
first; When I was in the Scientific Labs of Chrysler I went to our foundry
for a project. ( Foundries melt and pour steel or other metals, in
this case for engines.) They had a saying, " We are the only
place in the company that "MAKES" anything. Everyone else
just assembles the car." This is a very true statement.
When someone asks me what type of small business they should start I say,
" Candle Making.". Understand this example, making
something from a mold is the ROOT of wealth creation. You make
something MORE valuable than the ingredients that went into it.
Real estate agents, car dealerships, lawyers, sales people and prostitutes
are all the same, they only provide a service. Dollars are exchanged for a
service, a wealth or additional value is not created. If I take 10
cents in wax and a 1 penny wick and make it in the shape of a teddy bear
and sell it for $10 I've created wealth. Now the point:
Gasoline, Diesel, Oil, Natural Gas are all called HYDROCARBONS. <-- See
the word CARBON in there. What did I say earlier about Carbon?
This means the liquid or the gas is ONLY made out of Hydrogen ( H ) and
Carbon (C) atoms. Nothing else. The most common form of
elemental carbon you see everyday is either charcoal briquettes or the
graphite in a pencil lead. Don't let this fool you. The hydrogen can
be removed from the HydroCarbon and used for vehicle transportation and
the Carbon can be turned into CARBON FIBER. Carbon fiber is stronger
than steel. You can make physical things with it like cars,
buildings, beams, plates, rope, houses, fabric, shirts, bullet proof
vests. It can also be thermally conductive or thermally insulating
so it can be the insulation in your house and it can be the frying pan on
your stove. It can be electrically conductive or it can be an
electrical insulation. So it can replace copper wire AND in another
formulation it can be the insulation around the copper wire.
Carbon can and will build the world. So when you take the
Hydrogen out of the oil and use it for fuel ( that is a service ) you also
take the carbon out of the oil and you make things ( you create wealth
). That is what Roy means by Hydrogen being the key to a Wealth
Expanding Economy. You can either read his book or you can
understand it. The choice is yours, but you won't find this in
anyone else's book. Read this paragraph twice.
