      Thanks for your comment Barbara & Jack, I can see your point. At least this is an improvement on the alternative fuel source that is gaining popularity and destroying ecosystems, hydraulic fracturing. My hope is that we continue to improve on what we already have available to provide for the inevitably inflating population.
