I, too would like to see hydrogen take off, pun not intended, but the cynic in me does tend to agree with your last statement regarding the oil companies. Since it seems to be the thing for the POTUS to suck the dick of big oil, I suspect bugger all will be done of any real worth until one of them grows some balls.
I note an obsession with cock sucking, interesting.

I don't get the Shinkansen reference btw

Yes and the first 1000 "Signature" series cars started rolling off the production line last June. Those all got delivered by end of last year. They've just started production on the European Signature series this month.

They are now producing 600 cars a week in CA. That's 30k a year. Not bad for a 10 year old start up company that's challenging conventional ideas about car design and the way the automotive industry does business.

Twats.
One of my mates at uni, biggest green hippy on earth really, he's doing massive research for one of the big fuel companies in renewable research. He basically said they paid him way to much money to turn it down with essentially a blank cheque to fund the research compared to what he was getting in academia.

Apart from the only, the only difference was the petrol company owning the patents rather than the university, so no difference to him personally.

So did Delorean, Saturn, Daewoo, and Fisker. Do you see a pattern?
