Fossil Fuels Can Be Made Out Of Fatty Acids and Ice Cream

Fossil Fuels Can Be Made Out Of Fatty Acids and Ice Cream

December 17, 2012
By DJ Pangburn 6 hours ago

Researchers at the University of Manchester have identified a biocatalyst which could produce chemicals from fatty acids and household items like soups (or ice cream) to replace fossil fuel chemicals. The researchers are using synthetic biology to manipulate the hydrocarbon chemicals found in these household items. The research was published in PNAS.

The researchers, led by Professor Nick Turner from The University of Manchester, and working with colleagues at University of Turku in Finland, found that naturally-existing fatty acids could create ready-to-use fuels to power cars and household devices, leading to a potential breakthrough in sustainable energy.

The Fossil Fuel Myth

Petroleum is not derived from formerly living organisms. Rather, it is created during a naturally-occurring process within the Earth's crust.

This 100-year old myth is one of the earliest Rockefeller scams.

1892. Origin of the world-wide fossil feul propaganda campaign.

Oil is NOT a "fossil fuel" Certainly, that created before 1892.

Here is the introduction from the link above: Published on Youtube Feb 20, 2012

Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty spills the beans about how oil was deliberately, incorrectly classified as a fossil fuel, when in fact it is Abiotic. As such, it is a replenishable, naturally occurring source. Peak oil is a myth, or more accurately, a lie. Just like almost everything else the establishment ever told you.

Oh, great. Enjoy it while you can.

Just like with corn and ethanol, now the price of Haagen Dazs will go up!

Nooooooooooo!!!!

Not my Haagen Dazs!!!

Anything Into Oil

Oil can be made from almost anything.

Fossils are bones. Petrified bones.

Fossil Fuels: Propaganda campaign phrase heavily used in peak oil ad campaigns.

Perhaps you & these scientists have yet again, discovered the obvious. Coal, crude oil, natural gas, & the like are mostly carbon. They burn as a convenient, compact source of energy. Carbon is quite plentiful in compounds.

To my simple study, all elements may combust. Under extreme pressure, even the first element, #1 Hydrogen went boom! It eviscerated the Eniwetok & Bikini atolls. The first hydrogen bomb exploded at Eniwetok Atoll in 1952. It generated the equivalent of 10.4 million tons of TNT.

why are they called "fossil" fuels.

care to take a guess anybody?

A guess. Why is crude oil called a "fossil fuel?"

Search for pools of subterranean crude oil includes drilling core samples. Geologist observed fossils are oft found nearby & in crude oil. Fossils (bones) were preserved in crude oil. Over time, speculation lead to surmising. Thus, searching for oil linked to fossils. Then some idiot got a hold of a typewriter.

From that point, it is anybodies guess.

the Fossil fuel theory. rests on an assumption.

the assumption is that crude oil, coal and natural gas can only come from former life forms that have decayed over time.
all of us are dependent on them as we write wherever we are. we discovered how to make kerosene around 1850. somebody had the bright idea to put "rock oil" in a still..... and instead of whisky, they got kerosene.
at the time we were riding animals to get around and lighting our homes with whale oil.
we now know that they are not "special" here. in fact they are common throughout our solar system. and beyond.
it is an important subject that few pay attention to. I study energy. and I work on furnaces and boiler systems. but I live in the south now and prefer cooling work.
peace.

You Sound Like One My Old School Teachers...

He always asking us questions, but rairly gave us any answers...The idea was to make his students leran by discovery. He use to say, "If I give you answers, then how will you learn to think and discover for yourselves.."

I bet you were a grammar school teacher.

.lol..

Would you prefer

Teachers to encourage thinking or just tell you 'What' to think?

I Was Merely Pointing Out The Similarities

I Would Prefer Learning By Discovery Though, In All America Schools..

Now you sound like one of my

it is because they are organic. hydrocarbons are organic.

but if you spray them on produce, the produce is no longer organic.
any questions?

petroleum is abiotic

.

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

"Rock Oil" comes from Rocks?

surely you jest.
have you been paying attention to the discoveries on Saturn?
why do you suppose no one is talking about this connection? there are more hydrocarbons on Titan than there are on earth.
how did they get there if they only come from fossils?

He said ABiotic. That's the

He said ABiotic.

That's the opposite of Biotic.

You two are agreeing, but can't even see it.

Blah.

I know, right?

Isn't the internet funny?

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

long time, no see.

we are discussing, not arguing.
sorta like the time you and I got into it over the freezing point of water?

It's still -40C/F :)

It's still -40C/F :)

And I did say, you are AGREEING and not noticing it.

Blah.

Huh?

WTF is -40C/F?
So water doesn't boil at 100°C or 212°F?
Or is that a new form of measurement?

Previously I pointed out that water, when pure or almost pure, actually won't freeze until its -40C (or -40F). Although this sounds like an awfully cold temperature, it's more common than you think.

Every day, as the storm clouds build, the ice/snow will typically form at an elevation where the temp is -40 or colder.

So my point to him, some time ago - was that 32F is indeed the melting point of ice, but without a nucleus to start the transformation, -40 is the freezing point of water.

This can be demonstrated by taking water in bottle (sealed from vendor/factory), chilling it to 0F or so, then taking it out. Sometimes you can removed it as a liquid. Flip it upside down, tap it - and it freezes solid.

Blah.

Point taken

but not sold... Are we talking C or F ???
That's my real question. 0°C is 32°F or?
Any idea why the sun is purportedly so hot yet it's very cold in space?
