  1. Thanks for letting us know details about ( CCRES ) . and all the best wishes for ( CCRES ) .
    I hate all Carbon energy (Coal+oil+gas+others) . Recent Japan's nuclear crisis is the ans that we need Green Energy mostly. and increasing the price of oil price is also encourage to Green Energy or Renewable energy . I love top-roof solar panel (but it should be more powerful.

    I hope our world will be a more comfortable for living again.

    Thanks
