Jake: ‘I don’t understand why the world is so hot about hydrogen fuel cells – a product that’s at least a decade away from being a viable form of transportation, and that uses a highly unstable element for fuel (think Hindenburg) – while ignoring the advantages that zinc-air technology offers. Take a look at this electric vehicle website. Tell me what you think.’

Matt Madigan: ‘I am alarmed at the current state of our energy policy and dependencies. Perhaps this is a ray of light from the private sector.’
☞ Yes! I love this! (Not least: ‘If a 175-pound man fell into one end, he would come out the other end as 38 pounds of oil, 7 pounds of gas, and 7 pounds of minerals, as well as 123 pounds of sterilized water.’) If this actually works – and Howard Buffett’s assessment is certainly encouraging – it is American ingenuity at its best and, as I say, truly world-changing. Just one more reason I hope to live forever.
