Undeniable Fact: A Diamond in the Rough

Thursday, November 09, 2006

You may already know that tremendous heat and pressure can convert a lump of coal into a diamond.

If scientists could figure out how to reverse the process, all of our energy problems would be solved.

Some of the energy might be stored, but certainly not all of it. What isn't stored doesn't just disappear, it merely migrates some where else.
