Jet Fuel

Credit where credit due. Donald Rumsfeld has authorized the USAF to explore alternate fuels for its fleet of jets.

"Energy is a national security issue," said Michael A. Aimone, the Air Force assistant deputy chief of staff for logistics.

The United States is unlikely ever to become fully independent of foreign oil, Mr. Aimone said, but the intent of the Air Force project is "to develop enough independence to have assured domestic supplies for aviation purposes."
Not exactly as ambitious as I'd like, but I welcome any progress at all towards the development of alternate fuels.
