NOTABLES | SELF-SUFFICIENCY
Al Rutan, the "Methane Man"
died recently and proponents of "Alternative" Energy most directly feel the loss | Others ought to as well |
I never personally knew him, but have read of him and knew his website | He was an indefatigable champion of energy independence and self sufficiency | Moreover, his efforts make it clear that the populace does not need to rely upon Big Oil as much as they need to rely upon themselves | It is clear that Al
believed [as to others] that "...the American mindset to “conquer” nature rather than learn from and imitate nature...
has resulted in the failure of ...attempts at harnessing this completely natural process...
" | The options for freedom are available, using existing technology and a little bit of dedication and determination |
His website Rutan Research - Methane Gas
is still online, but who knows for how long | Actually, some enterprising soul can save the pages intact; getting someone else to publish, sell and distribute workable plans for methane digesters / producers of direct usable fuel might be more daunting |
Gotta thank Steve Spense for bringing this to my attention |
