Gold is Green – Can Gold Prevent Pollution?
Whether or not they know the full story, most investors in gold buy it as a hedge against worldwide economic holocaust via resource monopoly and universal devaluation of the money hitherto given us slaves by the powers-that-be. They might think it’s just a hedge against a euro collapse or dollar collapse, but there’s much more to the story. However, gold might also be of use in the Green Economy.
RE-searchers at MIT have discovered that a “little” gold added to copper can act as a strong catalyst and convert carbon dioxide into methane or methanol. That means that the combination can create hydrocarbon fuels with little energy.
That copper was capable of such a feat was well-known. The issue arose in that copper oxidizes so quickly, thereby reducing its ability to induce electrochemical reactions. Copper and gold combined are resistance to corrosion.
