Get Smart on Alternative Fuels!
It is difficult to go through a day without talking about the price of gas (since nearly everyone I work with drives a giant V-10 sized truck, these discussions are often emotional and animated!). Popular mechanics has a great article describing the most popular types of alternative fuels, and dishes out the advantages and drawbacks of each one. Read the whole thing, and you will be the smart one at the water cooler tomorrow.
Even more importantly, as global demand for petroleum increases, finding altrernative means to meet our energy demands will become increasingly important. Reading and learning about current alternatives is an incremental step toward a solution. So read on, and start solving the world's energy problems!
Post Script: I found this Popular Mechanics article over at instapundit, who has more alternative fuel reference materials available on his blog.
