How sad that we aren't already going down this path. With just a fraction of the money we're already spending on fuel cells or imported oil, we could be developing a sustainable fuel source that would cost the taxpayer and the environment a lot less. I don't think it's feasible to convert 11,000 square miles of desert for algae/biodiesel production. Dispersing the production around the country makes a lot more sense.

I agree there's no way this will generate any interest under the present administration, but maybe somebody else in the future will wake up and do something sensible. The official rejection of modern diesel technology in this country is just moronic, and subsidizing fuel cell cars when they will clearly remain so inefficient is sickening.

Oh well, at least there's a strong grassroots adoption of biodiesel that's encouraging. I hope it continues to catch on.
