I decided that it might be interesting to see what the Esperanza crew thought about my idea that they could use an AdamsEngineTM. Here is the comment that I made on their most recent blog post by Irene titled Are we there yet?:
I heard about your expedition while listening the interview that Melissa Block of NPR did with Karli Thomas. You are on quite a mission.
One thing that struck me during the interview was that your time on station was very dependent upon your fuel reserves and the speed that you need to travel to intercept and keep up with the whaling ship.
While I recognize that fuel limitations are of concern for most maritime voyages, I could not help but wonder how Greenpeace would feel about operating a zero emission ship that came complete with a 15 year fuel supply?
As a former submarine engineer officer, I can tell you that such machines have a proven history that goes back about 50 years.
My company has been working on a commercial version for the past 15 years and hope that someday it will enable successful completion of important missions like yours without worrying about the limitations imposed by fossil fuels.

Wonder if it will get approved by the blog moderator?
