Well he definatley has some a good platform to run on, the problem is that presidential elections isn't based so much on the platform you run on, it's more of how many people you can fool into voting for you. So this guy might be a fantastic candidate (I won't make a decision on that until I see the rest of his stance on the issues), but if he's running against people like Hilary or Guiliani he could get hit pretty hard.

1) Hydrogen requires gobs of energy to produce and compress for vehicular use.
2) The Middle east will still be a mess because of the Paternalistic Warlord Culture they love so much.

I feel dropping dependency of foreign oil (e.g. Canada), is not a hit the switch type change. A gradual withdrawal based on, as written above -new technologies. Such as hydrogen fuel and other to be found, semi-pollutant or less local energy resources. Dallas [Edited by Don W]

Sorry donwhite, but you sound exactly like the people who took Galileo to court, and laughed at Columbus for refusing to accept that the world was flat. [Edited by Don W]
Nothing can ever be achieved if we don't believe that change is possible. We cannot stop or cut funding for these projects because our current and previous research has not yet yielded the results we need.
Each of the discussed technologies has become cheaper and more efficient. That has occurred with only marginal funding. By making the research a priority with heavy funding, we can get closer and closer every year.
No, I don't believe it will happen overnight. But within a decade or two, at least we will have leveraged out our fuel needs between a large variety of environmentally and highly efficient renewable fuels. [Edited by Don W]
