I have just invented a way for plants to convert heat into electricity. My work has been called the Green Revolution, if you are interested in that,” he said last year, on the sidelines of the US-China Nuclear Cooperation Conference in Washington DC .
“We use sunlight to break hydrocarbon fuels into hydrogen and oxygen. We have no need to import hydrogen from somewhere or any other way. It can be produced anywhere in the world. Our green factories would be clean and efficient, they would use only renewable energy.”
He predicted the hydrogen, used not in a conventional factory but rather in one of his self-contained “mini-hydrogen refineries”, which are powered by the sun by day, but not so much in the night.
He said at the time that it could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 3.1 per cent below coal combustion. He has now revised his predictions and the impact on warming has been even bigger as he now believes that the technology could cut those emissions by 11 per cent below coal.
Last year, Dr Li, now at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was awarded the prize for best new concept in environmental technologies – the same award that Barack Obama won in 2007 for a new way of making energy, the “plug and play” energy system – the “clean coal power plant”.
As the U.S. presidential election nears it appears the race is being decided by those who are not part of the ‘Never Trump’ crowd. It’s a rather interesting question if you don’t know where to start
I don’t believe America is a very good place for a woman to be. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with men like Donald Trump thinking that. Nor do I believe, like Hillary Clinton, that he should be our Commander in Chief. And so, when he says “there’s nothing illegal in kissing somebody and getting it on with one another” or “women can have equal rights,” or “people can say whatever they want and I believe I can say it too,” it raises all kinds of questions about his character which should be put under the microscope.
It seems to me that it’s going to be the same kind of scrutiny Hillary is facing. This guy is a bully, a misogynist. I’m not asking them to choose any other candidate but to judge that this guy’s values are repugnant and that he’s not fit to serve as President of the United States.
