    Or get elected president in the USA.

    Apparently it has to turn to a watery gruel first.

    Soylent green?

    Don't you wish a copy of Joshs or Lakes could still post here?

    If aliens beamed you up, copied all your molecules and electric fields and beamed ten of you down here and millions more all over the galaxy which ones would your dogs wag their tails at most?

    I suppose they'd all claim to own my money.

    You owe money to Lakes and Joshs?

    Which one of you, one Sporran between a thousand of you?

    Imagine a billion copies of Trump, the ultimate horror story.

    Powerful, efficient ceramic fuel cells could enable in-home production of electricity from natural gas.

    You approve of the distribution of methane along leaky pipes to private consumers?

    That already powers my central heating.

    A fuel cell also produced waste heat, that can heat water for washing etc.

    And my hot water tank. The fact of its existence doesn't make it a good idea.

    Bidirectional leakage of gases! That might be a useful technology if you can sort out the details.

    We could make biomethane that is carbon neutral but there is so much methane trapped in the arctic tundra and ocean clathrates we might be better off using it in a controlled way.

    Methane in the atmosphere is more of a greenhouse gas then carbon dioxide.

    Still nano rust and ocean currents might produce enough carbon free power for us all.

    Could be great for seasteaders.

    Which is why I don't trust the gas utility to deliver it to you and I don't trust you to possess it.

    But can YOU keep it safely bottled up?

    I doubt it.

    Siberia is burning already.

    No we can't. Is your argument that a little more won't hurt?

    (Don't forget the clathrates.)

    My argument is that the controlled burning of methane with co2 capture is better than letting it escape into the atmosphere.

    Turning it into plastic might also be possible.
