Critique Of Jeremy Rifkin's Book: "The Hydrogen Economy"

April 02, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 148

We criticize Rifkin early on for displaying a startling lack of particle physics logic; he peculiarly describes the sun's energy and heat's destiny: "Some of this energy is captured by living things and converted into forms useful to sustain life, while the rest ends up as heat and is radiated back into space." Not unexpectedly, he merely reflects tradition's acceptance of intangible science; that is: ignore those things not readily contradicting the workability in applied science.

Truly, Ultimate Particle logic will dispute Rifkin's posit and define the Universe product as particles converted to heat energy through speed and intensity. Rejecting the above quote from Rifkin's facing page, a theory on the recyclable nature of energy requiring only the essence of speed as it relates to frequency. In this theoretical compost, heat energy is continuously converted and cannot only radiate back into space but reabsorb into the nearest mass receptacle. If this theory was not true, astronauts could not view the earth from outer space; indeed, the moon would be invisible.

In describing the Second Law of Thermodynamics, Rifkin states: "While energy cannot be created or destroyed, it is continually changing in form, but always in one direction, from available to unavailable... whenever energy is transformed, some amount of available energy is lost in the process; that is, it is no longer able to perform useful work." He proposes such loss to be not loss but 'entropy'... transformed in one direction; from hot to cold, concentrated to dispersed, or ordered to disordered. We must disagree: simple logic will determine a continuing conversion of cold to hot and hot to cold.

Describing energy as it relates to modern civilization, Rifkin correctly notes: the collapse of great civilizations occurs because of a 'failure of vitality,' an inability to mobilize human energy; the most ardent supporters of fossil-fuel energy doubt the hydrocarbon era will survive 21st century excesses. Citing our declining culture and increasing welfare mentality, Rifkin parallels world economies with decline of the great Roman Empire, and citing the failure in increased energy output to satisfy a reduced energy input. An alleged utterance from Plato and Aristotle philosophy stating an obvious axiom: wherein, you cannot get something from nothing.

And as this philosophy relates to particle physics and Thermodynamic Rules, you cannot convert something into nothing. Energy must be totally recyclable or energy will cease to be functional!

Citing Saudi Arabia's sociological conundrums, indeed the Middle East as an Islam extension, apologetically underpinned, Rifkin explores the Saudi declining energy output and its nonproductive population increasingly dependent on the will of Allah-following Mohammed's 'righteousness path.' In the best reasoning of knowledgeable exegetes, 'righteousness' was the farthermost thought in Mohammed mentality; he pursued only the most perverse acts to entertain his most unholy pleasures. Endemic to Middle East culture and not unlike Western propensity, we scratch only where it feels good.

Rifkin notes the importance of 'decarbonization' or society's resort to fuels containing greater hydrogen to carbon ratios, and suggests Hydrogen should complete the journey into decarbonization... increasingly looked to as the great hope for humanity's continued advance on Earth.

In this sense, Rifkin recognizes the energy resident in Hydrogen atom interactions, bound into Earth's mass; he predicts: energy will be as cheap in one part of the country as another, so that industry will be greatly decentralized.

Promoting hydrogen fuel cells as a wave of the near future, Rifkin describes the inner workings of fuel cells versus chemical energy and as a must alternative to fossil fuels. He is correct, of course! With 684 bibliographic references on 255 total pages, Rifkin draws on wide-ranging interests, from sociology, religion, and physics, especially energy's impact on anthropic principle existentialisms.

There you have it! No matter the discussion or topic major, there can exist little separation between physics and metaphysics. Our mind continually concocts a mix of metaphysics needed for survival and survival needed for physics. We are a physical entity embroiled in mystery, the unexplained, the intangible, the imponderable. Immortality identifies as the ultimate desire of our oxygen/hydrogen fueled existentialism, but perpetuity into its realm cannot be a surety harnessed to our present attainment vehicle. Syllogistic logic, to qualitatively investigate our desire for immortality is available to those willing to do the research!

Advanced studies disclose the reason for our desire and the cause for our failure.

Ben Winter, particles physicist, Bible scholar, and author of "THE GREAT DECEPTION: Symbols And Numbers Clarified," reveals there 'is' something new under the sun -- that is, for modern Bible students. He addresses correctness of language and true intent of the major Bible topics: solves Bible mysteries, defines Gog and Magog, reveals Daniel He-goat's surprising identity, and dares to number the all important Ten Ages.
