Something from today's news.
====================================
Today is the day for action on thermodynamic reform

There are many great issues facing our nation. Just a few years ago we were faced with a great recession. Many at the time thought that we could not escape it but thanks to the actions of our leaders who were not a afraid to try new ways of doing things that had not worked in the past such as the Fiscal Stimulus and Quantitative Easing we can say the recovery has begun. However, it is clear that something beyond economics is holding us back from a faster recovery. It is time to address our outdated laws of thermodynamics.

These four little laws are holing us back in so many ways. It is not just the economy that is held back by these burdensome constraints. They are stopping us from achieving energy independence, reversing global warming, increasing fuel mileage of our cars and trucks. It is even leading to wars as the world fights over energy supplies that have been limited by these laws.

We will begin by liberalizing the law of conservation of energy. We will follow the examples that have been set buy our success in economic policy. We have been already been doing this for many years by borrowing energy from future generations much like we do to fund the government. We will allow the department of energy to create energy in the same way the Federal reserve has been creating capital.

By easing the burdens these laws place on American bushiness and government we will start a new age of prosperity much like the information supper highway did before the turn of the century.

About the Federal Office Of Legislative Solutions: We are a partisan committee tasked with finding ideological solutions to the practical problems facing our country.

RE: Energy policy

A nucular reactor takes the decay of unstable material, and accelerates it so that we can use that energy today. It helps global warming by making the earth warmer now, so it won't heat up so much in the future.

What a great idea. Accelerate the energy production for today, so our children will have to create it a different way.

Yea, I know that wasen't what you were talking about.

The sad thing is that there really was a group of senators that thought rewriting the laws of thermodynamics was the solution to raise the fuel millage requirements of cars...

RE: Energy policy

not according to your link ? (at least the way i read it)

"The comments related to the "laws of physics" came from a discussion I had a number of years ago with several congressmen who said that we should pass a new 2nd law of thermodynamics."

RE: Energy policy

Just because you went to a university, dosen't mean you know it all.

Shall I throw a stick now?

RE: Energy policy

"Ideological solutions to the practical problems." The ultimate oxymoron! How about practical solutions to practical problems? Or effective solutions to real problems?

RE: Energy policy

And the people in congress think $175k isen't enough for the stupid things they do.

RE: Energy policy

There are many great issues facing our nation.

As this is an international forum may I ask what country this refers to?

RE: Energy policy

Probably either the USA or Europe, where the custom of hoaxes and jokes on April 1 is a common custom.

...or you can just read the second-to-last paragraph where USA was made pretty explicit.
