    We dumped the most of our iron into the sea

    The GD fish are so happy it is wonderful to watch them F'n swim amongst my GD iron investment that the GD environmentalists convinced the F'n politicians to send to David Jones, Whale $h-t Level, Earth

    This country has thousands of miles of F'n desert...would it be too much to ask that we save our iron for future generations instead of giving the GD fish a F'n home?

    If all were looking at is plastics...carbon molecules are the key, what a waste

    I believe that most of the iron is being shipped to China, in which case I agree that we should be saving it for our own needs, and keeping vigilant especially of our own security requirements, rather than providing raw materials to a potential enemy.

    As for the plastic:

    Reuse and recycling make sense.

    If we were to tear apart every single one of the dumps located in the US...if only to recycle...

    The Mexicans we would keep employed would be incredible to the GDP:rolleyes:

    WE tore out all of the 90% iron bearing ore in the US for WWII and when the "Boys came home" the ships have basically been scuttled into fish reefs...

    The recycle stream is jinxed from the git-go...

    Paper bags..they take a lot, we work a lot ...it works
    Plastic bags...they are cheap, make great trash bags/animal crap bags/are saved for re-use at many houses...just like the paper bags used to be saved for...(LATHERRINSEREPEAT)..and their use is now either Taxable or guilt ridden...which is worse?

    Glass...color is relevant...States dump tons of glass when recycling is overwhelmed...

    Again...bring on the labor which costs $$ that no one wants to allow the government to control...that they could be perfect to oversee these operations but their track record is horrendous if not criminal...:rolleyes:

    So...Where we are is certainly NOT where I EVER thought we would collectively be, today, and any "Fresh" idea is certainly only headed for the backburner of technology as the funds for individual production are drying up.


    The "collective" revolution has begun and we will need to be mindful of it's prescribed directions :cool:

    If this truly works, it will be buried by the oil and petroleum industry. They would be out of business!

    Hard to believe it is that simple to basically distill oil from plastic. If true, I would be curious to see the what the value of energy needed to run the still versus the value of energy in the oil produced. Nothing is free.

    Ha ! the Green dicktards will be all over this to kill it, they'll say the CO2 is locked into the plastic, and these machines allow it to escape :)


    Anybody know exactly what this machine is spitting out ? what type of refined product would it be comparable to ?

    Not likely. Refine all the plastic in the world, it would amount to pissen in a river. You have to remember once its burned up, there is no more recycling/refining. The scale in which the world revolves around when comes to oil is almost unfathomable.

    neat machine by the way
