Also there is enough oil to meet current and projected demand for the next 50 years in the U.S. contained in ANWR (arctic national wildlife refuge) in Alaska. Not to mention exploratory drilling leases could provide the US gov't with 2.3 billion dollars in the next year.

what the movie trailer first.

We are supposed to nearly run out of oil in about 10 years. This movie shows what it could be like when we get down to the wire. Gas prices at the pump $20.00!!!! Who would be able to fill up their boat every weekend or who would even have a boat. Hydrogen powered engines probably wont be powerful enough to be in high performance boats. Boat companies might be forced into going out of business...

THIS WOULD BE REALLY BAD lol
hydrogen can by used as a Combustion fuel, where it will make MORE power then gas in a combustion engine. What your thinking of is usign it to make electricity with a fuel cell then power an electric motor.

I'll be running turbines with Biodiesel LONG before i have to worry about the price of gas stopping me from enjoying my boat.

Exactly what I told a guy at work today. Maybe Formula should get ahead of the game and start now.

Like everything else, oil is a finite resource, but unlike electricity and hydrogen is not renewable. We need a government program, together with private industry, to develop either a new fuel source or a new kind of engine that runs on renewable fuels.

Whats good for the oil bidness is good for America. When the Oil Patch is good, the economy is good. Actually the very best example of trickle down economics. All Oil people like to spend money, every one from the Pres. down to the Roughneck. and Partyin' like no tomorrow as well.
