I no longer watch TV news since I refuse to pay for cable. It is easy to put a ideological spin on technology when it involves energy and big business. We are living in a bipolar society. One has to gather information from a number of sources from Forbes to PBS.

Diesel electric systems have been proven in train engines. Ecomodders have shown that good ideas can be developed without spending a ton of money. That is not to say world class research is not being done in corporate facilities. I have worked in labs that are funded at $1,000 USD per day and I also work in my basement at home.
