Nitrogen cars? Apparently compressed nitrogen might be more practical than hydrogen to transfer energy into our cars, and it refuels the car much faster than electric.

Difference Engine: End of the electric car?

Liquid nitrogen ... can store more energy per unit volume, allowing cars to travel further on a tankful of the stuff. Weight for weight, liquid nitrogen packs much the same energy as the lithium-ion batteries used in laptops, mobile phones and electric cars. In terms of performance and range, then, a nitrogen vehicle is similar to an electric vehicle rather than a conventional one.

Senator Inhofe has been one of the most conservative members of the Senate since his election in 1994. He is very religious and has based his support of Israel on God's word in the Bible. His opposition to climate change is also Biblically based—he thinks it is arrogant for humans to believe they can influence the climate while God is still in his heaven. The man is stupid beyond belief—even for a Republican senator.

Senator James Inhofe, famous for denouncing Climate Change as a hoax, admits that he used to believe Climate Change was true, until he learned how much it would cost to fight it.

Inhofe: Global warming too costly to be real

In short, learning about the (supposed) high cost of the solution is what turned him from a believer in climate science to a denier.


Would he also decide that a cancer diagnosis is wrong if the treatment was too expensive?
