And back and forth we go.
Debating the merits of every particular reaction that generates an electron.
So I thought I would wade in on this occasion.
I posit there is no conspiracy.
The 1000 mile carb or fuel injection system does not exist.
The dirt cheap fuel cell is a dream.
A car that rapidly goes 100's of miles on a squirt of compressed air is not at the moment viable.
As an aside on of my old engineering prof's spent years and years working on fuel cells for NASA.
He freely admitted it was a nightmare.
Expensive, flammable, explosive and unreliable.
But hey, that was then.
My opinion is every car company is working as hard as it can on alternative energy sources.
Not hiding it.
GM and Ford need all the help they can get.
They would kill(literally) for a wonder car.
Same with big oil.
They ain't stupid.
Ultimately they are energy company's, not oil companies.
BP and Shell will buy into and support any profitable energy source.
They are spending 100's of millions trying to do just that.
The second they can jump over to clean energy and make a nickel they will.
Think of the PR and advertising.
Lots of smart folks are all over it.
Right now it just doesn't pay that well.
In the future it will.
