Hogg Farmer Saves The World

Hogg Farmer Saves The World


For the first time in history the "common man" has the ability to change

the world. The day of the robber barons is quickly coming to an end.

As a self proclaimed conservative I believe in the individual and what he or she can

do in a free society Now that we have the internet, ideas can be freely shared with large numbers of people and

solutions can be offer up. Individuals can now take independent action.

If you want to protect the environment then you as an individual need to take matters

into your own hands and do what "you" can do. Stop the finger pointing and stop depending

on government to solve all your problems.

Case in point.

Five years ago a hog farmer & long distance hauler over heard a conversation where a couple of

guys were talking about running a diesel engine on vegetable oil. After many many hours on the internet

Paul Davis, the hog farmer, built his own biodiesel unit and ran his three trucks, tractors, lawn mowers etc

on used vegetabe oil he got free from local restruants.

Fast forward five years later, that would be today, and you'll find Paul down at his shop tinkering and overseeing

the biodiesel production plant he owns. Check out some of his video's at Biodiesel World http://worldtv.com/biodiesel_world

We can make it happen

Scientists see 'rarest event ever recorded' in search for dark matter

Surprising Science
  • In Italy, a team of scientists is using a highly sophisticated detector to hunt for dark matter.
  • The team observed an ultra-rare particle interaction that reveals the half-life of a xenon-124 atom to be 18 sextillion years.
  • The half-life of a process is how long it takes for half of the radioactive nuclei present in a sample to decay.
