How soon a F1 electric car? or a diesel running on chip fat, sometimes I feel good about Homo Sapiens and the possibility of a technology fix for our planet. It usually stops when I hear/read about the unacceptable face of capitalism, or in short, bankers. Remember the instability in 30 countries in 2008, food riots? well guess who figures in the cause of the instability? none other that Goldmann Sachs, plus others no doubt. Allegedly by "betting" on the future price of  core foods like rice, wheat and live cattle. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00cyf9j See above link in case you think this is just my opinion, it's from the beeb, I did read an article in the Scotland on Sunday by Bill Jamieson and he espoused all the usual market stuff that controls prices, as the food price increase is occurring again, now, but for a journalist he missed on the alleged 1 Bn dollars Goldmann Sachs made on trading in food futures, which destabilises the market. We all experienced it last year when oil prices per barrel reached over 140$ and pump prices shot up and then trickled down, that was speculation by you know who. How do we control profit at any price?
