We have several times, in the course of our reportage, made brief reference to the United States Department of Energy's "Green Freedom" (TM) concept for recycling atmospheric Carbon Dioxide in the synthesis of liquid hydrocarbon fuels.
 
Herein, via the enclosed link and attached file, we submit a fuller description and explanation of that technology.
 
As you will be able to see, the concept and technology are straightforward, even simple. But, the details beg study and public exposition by anyone truly interested in the security of our vital Coal-use industries and of the United States of America.
 
Comment follows brief excerpts from:
 
"Green Freedom (TM) - A Concept for Producing Carbon-Neutral Synthetic Fuels
 
November, 2007
 
Jeffrey Martin and William Kubic; Los Alamos National Laboratory, NM
 
Introduction: We have developed a low-risk, transformational concept, called Green Freedom (TM), for large scale production of carbon-neutral, sulfur-free fuels and chemicals from air and water.
 
Green Freedom (TM) utilizes carbon-neutral power to recover carbon dioxide from the atmosphere; split water into hydrogen; and, convert hydrogen and carbon dioxide into synthetic fuels and organic chemicals.
 
Green Freedom's (TM) synthesis-gas process is based on ... current technologies that are in wide use.
 
(Those technologies include) a process to separate carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and produce useful hydrogen as a byproduct; a process to generate supplemental hydrogen by splitting water; and, a carbon neutral power source.
 
Many useful organic chemicals can be produced ... (and we) have developed Green Freedom (TM) concepts for evaluation specifically for production of methanol and gasoline.
 
Making gasoline from air and water sounds exotic, but now practical technology has been developed to implement known chemical pathways for producing fuel from these abundant raw materials."

We don't know about you, or, based on the feedback we've so far received about our other reports concerning the very real CO2 recycling technologies that are "out there", and available, but:
