I hope Branson's 3 billion doesn't go to this effort.

Mr Branson if you want cleaner running aircraft support research into solid oxide high temperature fuel cells. They run on any liquid fuel, and by channeling the heated exhaust gases through a turbine, 75% efficiency can be attained.

That system would consume maybe 30% of the fuel that a typical aircraft turbine would consume for the same consumer miles flown. that's a huge reduction in greenhouse gas from aircraft.

A better place to put your dollars than synfuel from coal. Support synfuel from waste and algae groweing solar collector systems instead. It actually recycles CO 2 emmisions from powerrplants or utility grid fuel cells.
