There is still hope.

All of the alternative energy ideas have been scams up until this point. Such as the ethanol scam. The hybrid/electrical Prius nonsense. The plug-in car fantasy. (Power plants are three times more polluting for electric energy than gas engines. Thus the plug-in car is an enviromental nightmare and really inefficient use of power).

I think that after all of our taxpayer money has been wasted up in Washington by special interests pretending to build 'alternative' whatever or go 'green' whatever, the results will be that we are still running gas and our cars just happen to get better gas mileage due to gov't pressure.

So a lot of reckless spending and false promises and in ten years we will still be running on gas with maybe on average ten miles per gallon increased efficiency.

Shockingly, less weight and better engine management will provide all of that increased efficiency.
