Thermoacoustics – there seems to be a lot going on in the field of the sound and heat (and magnetics) combination.

Clean Solar Thermal Energy Technology with No Moving Parts – Thermoacoustic Stirling Engine

So heat, sound and magnetic fields have been shown to influence each other. This adds to another recent post about students experimentally putting out fires with sound waves…

Landmark study proves that magnets can control heat and sound

Experiment reveals new mysterious properties of sound waves

COLUMBUS, Ohio—Researchers at The Ohio State University have discovered how to control heat with a magnetic field. In the March 23 issue of the journal Nature Materials, they describe how a magnetic field roughly the size of a medical MRI reduced the amount of heat flowing through a semiconductor by 12 percent. The study is the first ever to prove that acoustic phonons—the elemental particles that transmit both heat and sound—have magnetic properties.

Owl: Fracking Dies – Crude Oil Excess Soars

Who?  Who?

Who? Who?

Fracking is on the Way OUT

The millions of dollars spent on those TV commercials gushing out – like an out-of-control oil well – fracking industry propaganda promoting the industry’s environment-destroying, water-poisoning and earthquake-making radical gas extraction practices will be all for naught if this article is correct – which strikes me as very convincing – in stating that added oil storage capability will disappear by this summer. The price of gasoline will drop like a Florida sinkhole and one wonders if they will be even able to give gas away free:

A workable wave power unit using hydraulics. They are pressurising sea water to drive land-based hydroelectric power generation or reverse osmosis desalination…

World’s first grid-connected wave power station switched on in Australia

It also supplies zero-emission desalinated water.
