Iceland Tries To Cut Its Gasoline Usage To Zero

Probably covered elsewhere, but here's an interesting ABC News story about Iceland -- which gets most of its power from geothermal wells -- trying to convert its transportation system entirely to hydrogen. Easy enough for them, considering they have tons of energy to start with, but not so easy for the rest of us, who have to get hydrogen from water or natural gas. Still, any steps toward thumbing our noses at the desert sheikhs are good ones.
