good of branson to put some money into this.
i think everyone is suddenly -- after the sudden oil price hike and the various manifestations of mohammedan power in europe (the murder of theo van gogh, the paris riots, the danish cartoon incident, the godman incident) -- getting to see that they have to get off the serious dependency on oil.
this is an opportunity for less polluting and renewable biofuels. and also for non-polluting and non-global-warming technologies like solar power.
in a perverse way, OPEC's antics, 9/11, al-qaeda [sic] all will add up to a world that weans itself off of fossil fuels relatively soon. the economic and other incentives are there.
