Getting back to fossil/biofuels for a moment, I heard something on the radio the other day about a competition to build carburetors that get 100 miles to the gallon.

Well, hell's bells, the Model T got 25 mpg 100 years ago. You can't tell me the technology for 100 mpg doesn't already exist. If Detroit puts 100 mpg carbs in their cars today the Big 3 would become immediately solvent — they couldn't build cars fast enough to meet demand.

So something else must be going on here, right?

Back to our regularly scheduled program — pass the Hennesey, please.
