    Of more worthy note are the investments by the petoleum industry into such such research.
    The petroleum industry- favorite whipping boy of Democrats.
    Hypocrites.

    Researching alternatives and pretending alternatives are "shovel ready" to implement as a solution to our energy needs are two different things

    Another Solyndra shaping up in Navy biofuels spending?...
    :eusa_shifty:
    McCain sees another Solyndra in Navy biofuels spending
    3/15/12 - The Navy’s push to develop biofuels to run its fleet of planes and warships could devolve into a “Solyndra situation” for the Pentagon, a top Republican senator said today.

    Charles Krauthammer: Obama’s oil flimflam
    15 Mar.`12 - Yes, of course, presidents have no direct control over gas prices. But the American people know something about this president and his disdain for oil. The “fuel of the past,” he contemptuously calls it. To the American worker who doesn’t commute by government motorcade and is getting fleeced every week at the pump, oil seems very much a fuel of the present — and of the foreseeable future.

    That's way back when Republicans had "scientists". They've been chased out of the party. Now, if they want something, they ask Rick Perry to hold a "stadium power prayer" and they pray to "God". Didn't work for the fires, but I'm pretty sure it will next time.
