Default Re: Dissapearing Post - "Whatever Happened To The Orbital Engine"

Hydrogen is the big buzzword, but I am skeptical of us moving there anytime soon, except at the margin.
It's pretty much a given in the industry planned for specifically over the next 20 years. Of course alot WILL be happening before then. :-)

Interestingly gas is a better source for other alternative fuels, as is coal, but everyone is running to use corn. Another conspiracy? Or, just an entrenched interest group in the farmers?
A definate conspiracy. Using corn and sugar cane (ethanol) is a simple way of using up surplus farm production. It's a gift to HUGE multinationals like ADM. I guess if they grow it they may as well use it but it's an awfully inefficient way to gather energy.
