Quantum Apostrophe: DarkVader: You can much more easily power a ship with a nuclear reactor

We tried that. Didn't work.

namatad: MAGIC process? syngas is one of many. We dont use it today because it is more economical to pump crude.

We won't use it ever because it takes more energy to run than what you get out of it. It only works either in wartime when all social niceties are suspended, or for the military in peacetime, because the free market is suspended for them. Either way, you can kiss this world goodbye if we are reduced to depending on that.

1)what in sweet fark are you talking about, there are at least 4 nations sailing nuclear navy fleets right off the top of my head.

2)And WRONG, it is more efficient thus cheaper to use oil, but you still get more energy out of syngas than you put in. If you are under the mis-impression that because a syngas plant consumes some of it's inputs to operate, be aware that so do oil refineries. The net energy output is still higher that input.

I hate it when people with no farking clue what they are talking about speak as if they are an authority on the matter.
