    I’ll believe it when they produce some working prototypes. Remember “cold fusion”?

    Of course it won’t be long before some Kalifornia folks point out that somehow hemp would be a better car building material than wood.

    Ultimately, a solar and cold fusion powered train made of hemp will become a Kalifornia bond issue.

    I expect to see it within my lifetime.
