    Because for the most part research & development for renewable clean energy is dictated by the energy whores south of us.. since the privatization & degregulation of the energy industry in the US, the laws regarding mandatory funds into the R&D for clean & renewable enrgey has tanked. The only research being done is how to create more proffitable energy through technolgy that gives you a zingy market edge.

    I'm pretty sure they are doing R&D on how to turn things into oil quicker.

    New ride at the ex this year... for 5 tickets they strap you to the blades of the windmill and nature gives you a spin.

    Frontiers of Construction is a great show. The demolition ones are the best.

    That would be pretty cool, especially if you loaded all his pockets with lit fireworks.
