    My vote is coal. They should just make coal powered cars.

    I like the Chevy volt. It is an electric car but it has a gas engine that charges the batteries.

    I'm not sure if this is still true, but we used to mine coal and then bury it back in the ground because it's bad

    It's the same people that love grass fed beef, which causes cows to fart methane more, but hate global warming.

    I'm really confused about the cow thing. I remember when Corn Fed beef was advertised as the best. Now it's the exact opposite. They are saying grass feed beef is best. Which is it? I suppose all the grains are GMO nowadays.

    First Law of Thermodynamics: Energy can be changed from one form to another, but it cannot be created or destroyed. The total amount of energy and matter in the Universe remains constant, merely changing from one form to another. The First Law of Thermodynamics (Conservation) states that energy is always conserved, it cannot be created or destroyed. In essence, energy can be converted from one form into another.

    The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that "in all energy exchanges, if no energy enters or leaves the system, the potential energy of the state will always be less than that of the initial state." This is also commonly referred to as entropy. A watchspring-driven watch will run until the potential energy in the spring is converted, and not again until energy is reapplied to the spring to rewind it.
