This is great news overall, but unfortunately I dont really see us switching to this technology any time soon. I remember when we found a way to run
cars on water, and now these vehicles are in museums?! My point is that the oil companies of our governement are so high up the chain I dont see them
allowing this to be integrated into mainstream society quite yet. A more realistic approach as far as our government is concerned would be a slow
transition to this technology. I just don't see the bigwigs of the oil industry throwing up their hands and saying, "go ahead, you win." I dont
think these guys are gonna let this new source of fuel get too far. In my opinion, and Im sure most, this is a very dissapointing outlook but
realistic as well. It would be great if next year I go to my local mini mart and fuel up with these "complex hydrides" paying $1.50 per gallon,
saving hundreds a year, but I dont see it happening any time soon.
Think of how much this would benefit not only humanity, but our mother earth, no more oil spills, thousands of tons less CO2 in our atmosphere, more
green in our pockets. Im known as an optimist but in this world, Im learning more and more who's really runnin the show. Im also curious as to where
they are getting these complex hydrides, how is the ratio between supply and demand, how long does it take, what other reprecussions on the
environment does this source have (sp?) etc. Look, if we really want to stop using gas, we can right now! I live in the Northwest and there is a city
about 25 miles from my home that has a place that will convert your car to take biodeisel fuel at 85 cents a gallon, and im sure thats the case in
most cities, but then again growing these veggies that make biodeisel (except recycled of course) has other negative affects on this earth such as
room to grow crops, soil degradation etc., So its really up to us if we want to change/a change, us as individuals.
