Did anyone catch the Daily Show last night when Richard Branson was on. I cannot believe that this got such little media attention. For those who missed it: Jon was interviewing Branson, pretty standard stuff. Then Jon Stewart asked if Branson would consider sponsoring a competition amongst scientists and inventors to find a non-oil consuming replacement for the internal combustion engine. The winner would get billions of dollars in funding. If this could be achieved, the ramifications are endless, politically, sociollogically, environmentally, and so on. The current administration has no interest in pursuing this as it would jeapoardize there relationship with the Saudi's and their drive for a Iraqi puppet-state. Anyway, by the end of the interview, it sounded as if Branson agreed to organize this competition. Could be the start of something REALLY BIG! Any thoughts?
