I love these thoughts just as I said in a very early post when Anjou was brave enough to share her thoughts about why not make water out of H2 and O2.
It is this sort of an approach that we have to put our faith into when it comes to making the much needed progress to make te World a better place for more people.
Look at me , I have a nice genset making the RO watermaker
spinn perfecty making 130 litres of potable Water an hour besides topping up the batteries.
I belive and hope in having a financial situation than can leave me without worries when it comes to price
so why do I care?
Perhaps from the fact that I having spent quite some time in a leading Management position and I do understand that either you are on the leading edge of things or you pay the price
for not understanding what is happening.
Putting it in an other way we are on the brink of exhausting the high energy paradigm and we need to find another solution.
I do belive that the awnsers are all there and that there is a lot to be learned from the most competitive place of all ---Nature--!
Mintys pilot says it is really all very simple!
I do not agree. Since he is a Britt and Pilot I can not resist telling you all that the Spitfire was not the best Aircraft the world has seen...
I do fully agree on that a perpetum mobile is not possible but on the other hand why look for it??
No matter how you look on things energy has never been a problem on earth and will probably never be so if we all learn to use it wisely. ( before the sun dies)
The nice thing with the cruising crowd is that we have to start thinking in terms of energy efficency and consevation.
When it comes to this post I´m so very happy in joining you on the task how do we solve our problems.
I really do not care about if I am a better or bigger guy than the previous poster but ask for progress.
I still see that Anjous post about lifting sacks is not commented at all but it has been said that lifting a " heavy sphere " is " more likely of setting the ganis from not running a RO watermaker!!
I really like her courage in starting the thread with the common knowledge observation that Water is made out of H2 and O2
I wonder from just an energy efficiency point of view how you think?
Me not beeing the master of these things do humbly ask you to do the maths .
My genset efficincy factor abour 0.4 times my watermaker factor about 0.7 is not that impressive.
If I have to use my windlass
I do get an energy factor of something like 0.8
From the beer
point of view that has been a part of the last postings I do have to say I love beer on a really hot day if it is cool enough but really prefer good wine and water to keep me satisfied!!
Perhaps in an other way I can be described as a happy guy if he is nice and clean an not has to give up nice wine with his dinner.
Looking fwd to your thoughts!
