Sept. 9, 2009 -- The U.S. Navy could soon be sailing through an ocean of jet fuel if new research proves economical.
By extracting dissolved carbon dioxide from seawater and combining it with hydrogen stripped from water molecules, Navy chemists hope to one day secure a cheap and steady fuel source for its fleet of jets.

I disagree with folks who say that if the NAVY leads the way, we will follow.
I see no precident for such a thing.
Afterall, the ARMY and probably the other branches, have ran their vehicles on pure bio-fuel for quite some time.
Yet I still pay 2.50 a gallon...for gasoline.
This is cool, but I wouldn't expect to see the rest of us peasants follow along ANY time soon.
