Peruse the advertisements for hot water boilers from an old 1913 Architectural Digest. These conveniences were a new technology for the public as the century started. As this century begins, we may see the emergence of a new technology to last a millennium.

Have a pleasant journey Ruby.
If you are go through Upstate New York perhaps you might be able to drop a word in James Howard Kunsler’s ear. Poor chap needs cheering up.
He is has a very influential blog and is a competent writer and commentator.
Nice bit of fluff… or is this much more than that? I wish I knew how to figure how much fuel is used for heating things up compared to that used for transportation and lighting combined. 200C or better will bring more than dwellings up to tempurature… food processing, textiles, and manufacturing all use a lot of heat. How much compared to transportaion and lighting? 50/50 is my inuitive (unscientific) estimate. Bring on the heat… we need it.
Can anyone find any old steam cooking ads from when it first emerged in the marketplace?
Such material would be food for a great companion article.
My good friend Paul sent me an update on his efforts. I have never heard of the U.S.Energy Information Agency. Good work Paul, makes sense for more to inquire.
Hey Greg, I just copied you an email requesting info from the US Energy Information Agency. Let’s see what kind of info we can get from them. You can subscribe to as many as 100 government news letters and journals, all of which discuss energy issues. I just subscribed to 5. Paul
I am interested in having any Federal governmental agency acknowledge and support the new LENR, DPF, or Molybdenum Sulfur hydrogen producing catalytic material. There are at least 3, perhaps as many as 5, emerging technologies that may indeed, as some say, transform the world.
2012 doesn’t have to be the end of the world, but the beginning of a new one. Why not light up the world, and who says we can’t, or shouldn’t lead the way?
Please, if you have any concern for the welfare of the planet and its inhabitants do not let this plea die with you. On March 22 at 16:30 CET, CERN in Zurich is primed to let the world know that Cold Fusion, is not a hoax. Should they be the ones to lead the way?
