I saw a show on the Science Channel over the weekend that was talking about pretty much the same thing. There was a field of solar panels on the ground that all reflected to one special building (tower), from there it broke it down and converted it into gases to power a building/s, but hoped that in time it would be able to power the smaller town around them after adding more solar panels and building another tower to collect and distribute the energy. Cant think of the name of the show off the top of my head, but was pretty interesting. BTW Hong you still playing CoD?

I read an article on ScienceDaily.com about that. According to them, in 10 years we should see a viable competitor in the market for a gas substitute.
Let them hate.. so long as they FEAR!
