LETTERBOX


Real Ultimate Green I read MODERN CASTING faith-


fully each month. With that said, I feel compelled to comment on the article in the April edition entitled “In Search of the Ultimate Green.” I was mildly amused and then dismayed at the sub- stance of the article—with comments such as “capturing wind turbine energy in a battery is still cost-prohibitive, so private turbines are most effective when the wind is howling,” “imagine you could install a pipeline a half dozen miles long from the nearest landfill,” “the resulting greenhouse effect produced enough heat to melt small quantities of low melting point material,” and “it would be hard to use it on the midnight shift, so it needs coordinating around daylight hours.” If your goal was to highlight im-


practical technologies, then the article was a resounding success. After offer- ing some criticism, may I now offer some solutions. Why not investigate Tesla’s Wardenclyffe project (www. teslascience.org). Te science behind it would offer fantastic opportunities. Or for that matter, the work of John Hutchinson has the power to revolu- tionize industry (www.thehutchisonef- fect.com). It is my hope we can aban- don plowing the infertile fields of the past and move on to real technology. Mark Bielecki
