heard about Eskom today over safm news and that coal was more expensive contributing to Eskom's losses. Even said a shortage of coal might be experienced in future. What about this idea for new or existing power stations?: http://www.drlwilson.com/articles/hemp.htm on the Internet says: In New South Wales, Australia the Minister of Energy told the parliament they should consider burning confiscated hemp to produce electricity. "It burns at extremely high temperature, produces a lot of power and is cheaper (and much cleaner) to burn than coal. Canada and most European and Asian nations permit hemp cultivation. Could we grow enough to supply Eskom - seems possible
re the SAFM part .. be very careful of news reports, I have seen how news rooms work .. mostly it is badly, somebody with littl eknowledge takes a story they don;t fully understand, picks up on one point an makes it the headline of the story ..
