Lobbyist wants UFO released to fight global warming

This is pretty nuts. A new energy lobbyist wants the government to release captured spacecraft of extraterrestrial origin so we can reverse-engineer its power source. (NY Times) "It eliminates oil. It eliminates coal. If it's as good as we think it is, it transforms everything," says lobbyist Stephen Basset, who represents the Exopolitics Institute (which is "dedicated to studying the key actors, institutions and political processes associated with extraterrestrial life").

A clever new angle. But it ain't gonna' work.

"I hope he's right," said a senior Washington energy analyst, "hopefully, the magic energy machine will be coming our way shortly." Yes, hopefully.

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
