From Pollution to Prosperity: Converting Carbon Dioxide into a Commodity

A couple of my friends generously offered their valuable time to provide some insight into some of the technical issues of this paper.  Any other comments would be greatly appreciated.  I am not certain of the energy investment required for the production of Lithium Nitrate, but I cannot imagine it exceeding that which is produced in the exothermal chemical reaction when it is combined with Carbon Dioxide.  If anything, I am hoping that this may direct some interest toward the work of Dr. Yun Hang Hu and his research team at Michigan Technological University.  These ideas offer a plausible solution to many of the issues regarding pollution, energy and the stagnant manufacturing industry.

Radio Interview

Here is a link to a radio interview where I was able to discus  a few points about myself and my recent poem Martha.   I would like to express my gratitude to Susan Brender for having me on her show. She has a number of wonderfully interviews on her site.
