Comments:All I'm asking for is that the ads be required to be honest. Mis-leading and one-sided ads should be forbidden. Hydrogen fuel is very expensive and still oil intensive - it is not good for the environment. Same with ethanol. Corn is even a bad choice to make ethanol (switchgrass is much better). This won't be easy to figure out with the lobbying of the special interests. So I simply ask that ads be required to be scientifically accurate, as determined by the National Academy of Science.
