Describe the liquid fuel.


How is that worse than what a burning gasoline powered car does?

I haven't a clue what you mean. 'Gas tanks' do not in reality 'blow up'
as in Hollywood movies. They have to simulate that.

If you want to see what really happens in a car crash buy or rent the
film 'Ronin'. It's a cracking film to begin with and also makes the car
chases in Bullitt look absurdly tame.

Try again.  Identify a renewable liquid fuel.  If you cannot do so
then why are you asserting that one can be used for all eternity?  Or
are you just saying that we should ignore a problem that we know is
coming in the hope that when it does come about whoever is alive then
should deal with it?


I mean how is the damage to that airplane worse than what happens when
a fuel tank catches fire?  It is a simple question and if you cannot
understand it you have a problem.


I've seen it.  So what?  It's a movie, it has nothing to do with
objective reality.

I run my car on gasoline.
In the future, it will  be gasoline made from Coal to Oil technology.
We arnt running out of oil.
Enough coal in the world to meet the entire woulds gasoline needs for
at least the next 400 years.
