Sounds too good to be true. Oil companies won't like this if they actually find and use an alternative to jet fuel. I expect oil comanies will always have their way. Robert NWDC10

We need to save/use fuel wisely at the same time finding alternatives. Don't expect the USA to be "Energy Independant". Robert NWDC10

I don't expect anything from the USA without a concerted effort among its citizens. I don't trust the politicians nor the big oil conglomerates that is for sure. We should be moving on a progressive front in all directions whether it would be conserving/saving our natural and energy resources such as alternative fuels/oil or working on new technologies to lessen our dependence on certain resources that cause more harm than good.

From the aspect of aviation I just we believe we have a much longer road to travel and many more hurdles and technologies to figure out. Right now as with many such as Brazil and other nations the largest progress and visible success has been made from our evolving use of automobile technology and all its associated components.
