Oh Look Jack Nicholson Solved Global Warming & the Oil Crisis, 30 Years Ago

by Ken Layne

Hey, what the hell? Here’s Hollywood’s “The Joker” showing off his sweet Chevy ride with a regular crappy Chevy V-8, which runs on Hydrogen gas, which is produced by these little solar panels, all of which produce no emissions beyond bong water, which Jack inhales. So what happened to this system, anyway? [YouTube via Cryptogon]

“So what happened to this system, anyway?”

Detroit smothered it in its cradle, then shot itself in the foot.

Detroit/Tejas couldn’t handle the truth.

[re=49998]NoWireHangers[/re]: …capitalism at its best!

By far the most depressing thing I have seen all day.

Jack’s clothes are wrinkle-free. Complexion is glowing.

Someone cut the inventor’s brake lines?

AngryBlakGuy August 1, 2008 at 12:44 pm

…everyone knows that only way to solve our oil dependence is by drilling in ANWR!!! All this switching to some other kind of fuel is socialist dribble.

This is from CBC television. It’s a well kept secret that in Canada, all cars have been running on solar hydrogen power since 1977. The Alberta tar sands wouldn’t be half as profitable if the Americans knew about this technology. Also, Jack Nicholson forgot about it after smoking some sweet BC bud.

propaganda from Soviet Canuckistan! note the lady presenter’s Newfie accent (caaars).

they adopted the hydrogen car. but if you visit Canada today, you’ll find it is a wasteland of drab iron-curtaim-style concrete apartment blocks, marijuana grow-ops, Pride parades, and listless zombies who can’t choose their own doctor.

But but we have universal healthcare!

AngryBlakGuy August 1, 2008 at 1:03 pm

…running cars on electricity is so ELITIST, I like to use good ‘ol dead dinosaurs! Oops did I say “dinosaurs” I meant to say 10,000 year old Jesus tears; put there by god so that Exxon-Mobil would make 11.7 billion dollar last quarter. Amen!

Saudi oil is not gonna hurt you, it’s just going to bash your brains in.

Delicious August 1, 2008 at 1:09 pm

What happened to this system?

I want to know what happened to my flying car and breakfast in a pill and vacations on the moon?

And why do we still have Canada?

AxmxZ August 1, 2008 at 1:17 pm

[re=50081]Delicious[/re]: Yeah, man – where are the flying cars? I was promised flying cars!

TGY August 1, 2008 at 1:18 pm

’cause the car only costs a zillion dollars to drive 1-2 miles. Of course, that was competitive with gasoline engines in the ’70s.

TGY August 1, 2008 at 1:23 pm

Also, having pressurized hydrogen canisters in your car is asking for DEATH BY FIREBALL from a fender-bender. Safer to sit in your car smoking ganja with the windows rolled up and get that cool flying sensation.

30 years ago, people thought they would be going to their jobs in anti-grav hovercraft. Little did they know they would be out of jobs now.

badco/LoJ August 1, 2008 at 2:27 pm

Hydrogen isn’t cost-efficient as a motor fuel today. It was less so 30 years ago.

I don’t think it’s any more explosive than natural gas, and there have been safe CNG cars for years. The key problems are expense and complete lack of refueling infrastructure.

ReelectTilden August 1, 2008 at 2:45 pm

I think Jack smashed it to death with a golf club.

DangerousLiberal August 1, 2008 at 3:56 pm

Jeezus, if Jack was any more stoned in this clip, he wouldn’t need a car to move about.

bunnyhead August 1, 2008 at 6:15 pm

Jack was wrong on one point, gasoline motors are still available for carbon monoxide induced garage suicide…

DoctorCulturae August 1, 2008 at 6:48 pm

The inventor of this device also ran a house of ill repute, moved to Florida to see her mother and was working on a vaccine for anthrax poisoning.

Congradulations!! We are all socialists now… Drill, use it up, and move on… we need to start investing into newer, better, renewable forms of energy eventually, so we might as well get started now!!
