So I started getting a hankering for some fossil fuels. The good stuff: light, sweet crude oil and anthracite coal. These are the finest fossils that the earth has to offer us, refined and smelted over millions of years. They burn clean and pure with a clear flame and a light wisp of carbon dioxide.
What a waste that we use such a bounty for a cause as pedestrian as spinning turbines! We should be smelting ores with the coal and making plastic from the oil!
