    ...that would be the point of the research, yes?

    Agreed, too little, and about 40 years late, but its a start!

    Speaking of the 70's...

    Hey! We could just combine that engine that runs on water with a hydrogen fuel cell... which produces water as a byproduct.

    Infinite energy. I just invented it. You're welcome.

    I dig this move.
    We did, and it was an investment we have thrown out the window, repeatedly. This is just another smarmy political ploy.

    If it's such a great idea, why hasn't some private sector company already done it?

    because it's not immediately profitable, and oil is.

    But even the oil companies, who know their time is limited and have said they are working on alternative energies haven't come up with anything and they have both the money and the impetus to keep up their monopoly.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
