I came across this little 'American Geophysical Union' (AGU) blurb about the successful synthesis of man made coal back in 1983 by the Argonne National Laboratory.

http://www.agu.org/pubs/crossref/1983/EO064i050p0 ... 8-01.shtml

Are you aware of any recent research into man made coal?

coal is being made every day . it will just take a few million years to get the final product . I wonder how much energy it took to make this coal .

"Man Made Coal" is not a new venture, however as exotics go, the cost of $23,400 per ton was found to be excessive EXCEPT for the anally retentive who measure each milligram of coal burned, and the resulting ash produced.
The ash was found to be .00000001% per unit volume in the laboratory.

Question? Is there ANY possibility that a HUGE chemical of radiological event occurred in you hometown area?
The "OUT of THIS WORLD" BULLSHIP you keep posting is completely beyond comprehension of any normal red-blooded human being.

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a 'piece of human solid waste' by the clean end." More true today....

Well if they start charging those prices I think you'll have more coal burners in MA - especially inside the 128/95/1 belt. :lol:

Instead of cremation, do you think they could compress me into a lump of coal :?:

Understanding natural events is what has led to the breakthroughs in science and industry that we enjoy.

I think that the OP should continue this type of post.
