    Make petroleum from sunlight and CO2

    http://www.sandia.gov/news/resources.../sunshine.html

    As an example, he says, coal would be burned at a clean coal power plant. The carbon dioxide from the burning of the coal would be captured and reduced to carbon monoxide in the CR5. The carbon monoxide would then be the starting point of making gasoline, jet fuel, methanol, or almost any type of liquid fuel.

    i like the idea of using nuclear power to crack water for a supply of hydrogen.
