A method of hydrogen generation from solar power that is apparantly cheaper to implement and more efficient than the traditional technique of generating electricity then using electrolysis.

Yeah, saw that. Turns photons into groovy hydrogen bubbles to feed the fuel cell at night.
Right-on.

Somebody is going to make something like that work. That person becomes very, very wealthy.

Somebody is going to take advantage of the technology and develop a car that you can then fuel for free. That person becomes very, very wealthy.

This is going to happen. Probably within the next ten years.

Problem is we don't have ten years.  By that time the transfer of our wealth to OPEC will have done irreversible damage to our economy and our security.  I recommend anyone interested in a realistic, doable solution to our foreign oil dependence crisis, to Google 'Anne Korin'.  I caught one of her lectures on C-SPAN last night.  I think it might be re-played.  No matter where you stand politically, she makes good sense.

Hopefully Barack and John are paying attention...

If you saw his speech in Michigan yesterday you know that Barak certainly is. John much less so.

Forget those two. I hope T. Boone Pickens is paying attention.
