Now, here's a thought. Coal and Patents

We have been burning coal for the last few hundred years to release it's energy as a form of heat. Naturally this releases CO2 into the atmosphere and many other pollutants as well.

Just a thought for all the scientists, cannot the energy in coal be unlocked in a more modern way?, I heard somewhere that microwaving it can do something.

As the world seeks more and more energy, how many patents are held by oil, coal and gas companies that are locked away to safeguard their existing investments? Maybe governments can search the Patent Departments in their country and unlock the Patent for the Global good.

Remember the Cree Prophecy:
Only after the last tree has been cut down,
Only after the last river has been poisoned,
Only after the last fish has been caught,
Then you will find that money cannot be eaten.
