Drinking or Driving 

The idea of a hydrogen power economy has been around for some time (even El Busho himself talked about it, although one presumes he was unaware of it at the time). But Minnesota researchers may have found a way to make it work, using an ethanol reactor small enough to fit in a car.

It sounds from CNN's summary that this process would require lots of ethanol, and we needn't look much farther than Brazil to see that an ethanol economy is less than ideal. (second thoughts: Brazil's ethanol is from sugar cane, a much more problematic crop than the corn-based ethanol used at UM for this....)
