Compressed Air Cars And Fuel Tax

Isnít it just great that fuel companies and governments all around the world can hold us all to ransom by increasing fuel prices at their own discretion?

Increasing the price of fuel obviously has nothing to do with the actual fuel sources running out. If that were the case the market place could change over to compressed air cars and other hybrid cars.
Hybrid cars are still an expensive option for most. But air cars arenít.

But hang on they nearly run for free donít they. So we canít have people traveling around for free can we? How will those governments make their chop on us then?
200 KM on a tank of air. 3 minutes to fill a tank. Or about two hours running time for free that cant be good value or can it?
Watch the videos here:

http://www.motorauthority.com/news/videos/video-zero-emission-air-driven-cars/

Why is it that people bother inventing these cars when it takes so long to even see one in a show room? Iíd buy an air car tomorrow if they were sold here. They must cost only a fraction of any other car to produce in mass production.
If you watch the two videos on that site youíll see what I mean.
Now these air cars obviously work so why isnít the government putting a few spare billion into developing these cars and getting them into show rooms. Ouch no more tax income perhaps?

These cars could easily replace all city cars in a short space of time and one would think they could be manufactured extremely affordable. And most likely reducing city pollution to a quarter.

One can only remain cynical these days when one can see the advancement there but still not being made available to the public.
These cars should be in every car sales lot already and yet they still arenít there.
Doing this would drive the cost of fuel down very quickly Iíd bet.

The changes that are coming are going to bring us back on a new learning curve. It's going to be hard to adapt, and let's not make ourselves delusional to the fact, but anything to the exceptional to fossil fuels can only be a plus.

Co2 must be stopped with every inch of our mind development, and to say we have made a very poor job of it, and the oil companies still want to bleed there profits, and their eyesight is there own selfish disposition and you know this, and you know a lot more than i need to say. Population is still the main coarse to all what we see today, how to reduce this, I have no idea or how they would implement this idea.

We all know the oil companies have paid out and held legally, and they are holding the future advancements for their own gain. The BS that has been pushed down our throats with t.v and advertisement, and lets not forget the main point what they do to us is pulling the wool over our eyes.

They are going to bleed the oil situation as far as they can and they are going to tell us all types of crap to make us believe they are doing the right thing.

It's all economics and protecting the rich and you know it goes much more deeper than that.

The thing is, air doesn't come ready-compressed. Creating a supply of compressed air requires energy. This energy will typically be in the form of electricity which has itself been generated using fossil fuels. Given that a lot of energy is involved, anyone intending to do this would be buying their energy at the over-night off-peak rate. Such energy is almost entirely generated using that worst of CO2 emitters - coal.

Compressing air isn't even a particular efficient process unless the compressed air reservoirs are heavily insulated. This is because air gets hot when it's compressed. It's allowed to cool down, part of the energy used to compress it is lost.

So, despite the conspiracy theory, the reason we're not all running around in compressed air cars is just down to economics.

Its all about us changing our way of life. Our addiction to fossil fuels is very simular to a person that is addicted to herion. In the case of addiction, we must look to somebody with the understanding of addiction.

I see the day when our solar panels recharge our cars and not to mention our entire households and just like all addictions we need help.

The human race is reletively simple, and dont tell me that you are any smarter, with the evidence that we see with our eyes everyday.

It's a funny old world, and the understanding that you seek will not come anytime soon.

Technology is going to advance, and what we see now, in a hundred years, we are going to laugh like we do when we see a black and white picture of entertainment.

You should never underestimate anything, cause the fact is, we are all dinosaurs in a world of what we dont understand.

They are ripping us off and feeding us bs, and you know it as well as I do.

Past inventors were either bought out (their inventions) or threatened or killed by oil co's. The knowledge is there, if only the UN would demand that that knowledge to be released, we would have a chance. For starters, shareholders of oil companies and pharma-co's SELL your shares and reinvest into the future!
