Why do we spend trillions $$ studying Space but not on Fossil Fuel replacement to save our Planet?
Actually we are spending tons of money on finding fossil fuel replacements. General Motors along with several other companies are working on devoloping hydrogen fueled vehicles. GM already has a couple working prototypes and I think Daimler-Chrysler also has one that runs on hydrogen fuel-cells. Hydrogen fuel cells were developed clear back in the 1960’s from guess what, the NASA space program. Actually, hydrogen fuel cell cars may become reality within the next 20 years or so. They are also working on devoloping biofuels like ethanol (an alcohol made from plants) and biodiesel (made from soybeans) and making the process for creating those fuels more efficient. Those plants would decay and create the same carbon dioxide if they were used as fuel or not, thus reducing pollution and helping support farmers. At the same time, research is being done on enhancing the abilities of solar power and wind power. GE has made great strides in wind power. More and more wind generators are being add
