British Company Extracts Fuel from Air

Revolutionary new technology that produces “petrol from air” is being produced by a British firm, it emerged tonight.

 A small company in the north of England has developed the “air capture” technology to create synthetic petrol using only air and electricity.

Experts tonight hailed the astonishing breakthrough as a potential “game-changer” in the battle against climate change and a saviour for the world’s energy crisis.

The technology, presented to a London engineering conference this week, removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

    They might extract capital from suckers, but energy from the air, no.

    I don't think anyone's suggesting that it's an energy generation strategy. However, gasoline is a good way to transport energy.
