Do you know of anyone doing cutting-edge environmentally friendly fuel 
cells?  Also, this may sound bizarre, but if chlorophyll reflects the 
color green, is there a "vibration" or Hertz associated with it and if 
so, could that be mechanically reproduced?  Could you essentially then 
make artificial chlorophyll if the necessary organic molecules were 
present within a "vibrating" cytoplasm medium and sunlight being 
present?  What do thermal vent plants use to make energy in place of 

THanks for your assistance.
