AMERICAN MUSCLE! COME BACK TO MEEEE!

Oil companies have the most to gain from this! This will absoLUTELY see the light of day! And I'M SO EXCITED! I JUST CAN'T HIDE IT!
It'd be nice to actually use all of the energy stored in the fuel, rather than waste over 70% of it as heat. Just sayin..

People have pushed back a little against Monsanto, requiring Monsanto to re-evaluate cases where they claim that a farmer has illegally obtained their product where the cause for the contamination of crops was wind carrying pollen and not because of a physical theft by the farmer/farm. But because of the long and drawn-out litigation process on the relatively poor farmers, it's still more financially viable for the farm/farmer to pay out a settlement to Monsanto and get on with their lives than to try to wait it out and fight them with huge legal costs.

The most recent thing I've read is about 2 months old, where a case against one farmer was dropped because the "theft" of product was clearly due to pollen contamination, and not because of physical theft of seeds--and therefore not the responsibility of the farmer. Not really much progress, but I guess it's precedent in the right direction.

Regardless of the monsanto situation, I'm still very very wary of the decisions of a person that worked for them. I'm not saying that this person is evil, but you can't ignore what happened in the past and the mindset and decisions that were chosen.

This is shameful. Sure those guys are gonna make a butt load of money; but what about the environment? We shouls focus on alternative energy sources instead of polluting hydrocarbons

First we must rid ourselves of our symbiotic relationship with the middle east, then we can think alternative energy.

Sure, but inefficient is a relative term. What petrol engine is the ICE compared to that makes it inefficient? Not the rotary engine, that's for sure.

Most engines waste a ton of heat. Look at jet engines...

Hell, even electric motors churn out a lot of heat!

What alternative fuel source do we have that doesn't require the use of a pollution generating power plant?

The only real efficient and "pollution free" solution is nuclear power at this point.

As long as you don't consider radioactive nuclear waste pollution...

Because they have yet to yield any product-generated revenue at a pilot or commercialization scale. Be sure that if/when they do go public, their stock with be soooooo inflated it's not even funny. That is assuming that they don't run into any issues once they start operating at-scale.

Note the quotes...

If we allowed nuclear reprocessing here in the states, and finally get over the cold war scare, it is actually a VERY efficient and clean fuel source.

You can reprocess waste rods several times. The remaining material is much smaller and less radioactive.
