Why should the government fund it... Companies should "go after it"... Only good ideas should even have a chance at a grant... if it shows real promise... Too many want a hand out...

While I favor research into alternative fuels, anything the government gets involved in is usually mishandled. Too many bribes, too much corruption, too many members of the "good ole boy" network.

The more they put into alternative energy research, the better for our future.

In favor, especially if a big breakthrough is made for a new alternative source for fuel.

Alternative energy would be good, not only for cars but for homes and businesses as well. We have lots of sun, if a viable alternative were available it could be used to generate electricity. I have seen solar panels that look like roof shingles, but apparently they are not readily available yet.
