Breakthrough promises $1.50 per gallon synthetic gasoline with no carbon emissions (http://www.gizmag.com/breakthrough-promises-150-per-gallon-synthetic-gasoline-with-no-carbon-emissions/17687/)

Oil companies have little to worry from hydrogen based technologies including this one. Essentially takes oil to make hydrogen acquisition affordable right now and oil's secondary market plastic certainly isn't going anywhere. Pure renewable electric is still a better future IMO but today that is still based heavily on carbon.

I was REALLY hoping Obama in the state of the union would set a real goal for us to achieve which is energy independence. As a nation it means jobs, national security and a cleaner life.

I agree Straegen. But if its a cost reduction we need to push ahead. It would free up alot of $ for R&D
