Government is far more likely to do something TO us than FOR us. Let's face it, government has conspired with private industry for over a century, at least since the days of John D. Rockefeller, to prevent alternatives to internal combustion engines, alopathic medicine, you name it. If Tesla motors and the West Philadelphia High School diesal-electric hybrid teach us anything, it's that the world auto industry has deliberately witheld fuel-efficient technologies. Why? Because of interlocking boards of directors with energy companies. The first practical hybrid vehicle was demonstrated in 1973, BEFORE the first Middle East oil embargo, and it could be recharged from an extension cord. Nicola Tesla himselft was reported to have demonstrated a practical electric car in 1931(!). In the 1970s, TIME reported the "Moodymobile," a specially modified Ford Mustang that got 85 mpg. Ever heard of "Brown's gas" or the "motionless electromagnetic generator," which was awarded a patent in 2002 (www.cheniere.org)? What about evacuated tube transport technology, which uses a maglev operating in a vacuum tube to transport a vehicle at speeds of up to 4,000 mph(!) for pennies a mile (www.et3.com)? We see progress in "baby steps" because that's what they want us to see.
