Foobar do you even read my posts properly? Did you look at this link I provided -

http://www.mikebrownsolutions.com/ethanol.htm

I am suggesting using a combination of Ethanol derived from Hemp, Potato and as the referenced webpage suggests Corn Bushels. The man at that page has done the numbers and suggests we could get off Petrol dependancy within 3 years using Corn bushels alone. If you can show me where he's wrong thats great, but otherwise, you haven't answered anything.

Not really, your making it out to be like that, but I simply take information from all available sources. Are you saying I should decide whether to believe mainstream or fringe and never the twain shall meet? Seems very shortsighted too me. You don't believe in the Big Bang - well isn't that just switching backwards and forwards between 'official' sicence and 'fringe' science - isn't that kind of irrational?

See this really annoys me, you've now managed to drag me down to your level which is totally beneath me.

Yes I understand that. Don't you understand that often these companies then get bpought up and shut down by the larger companies they are competeing with. Thats just business.

It makes perfect sense from a capitalist point of view to save their own business - whether it can be shown that they do actually do it would need looking at on a case by case basis. But why have secret services when people may well come knocking directly at your door as Mr Cornish did when he wrote to BMW with that water-aluminum car.

Your suggesting secret agents and blowing this point up to sound ridiculous, this seems to be part of your strategy. In the previous post you suggested by apparently quoting me that I stated 'If someone produces energy without fuel' I did not state that, its quite a ridiculous statement, you have not appologised or corrected the error. It seems you are trying to discredit my arguments by making up statements. To be honest I've had enough, either you debate fairly or don't bother please. Its childish playground tactics which reveals your mentality in my opinion.
