I've got an idea--The epa should mandate the use of cold fusion by everyone. Then, when we don't use what doesn't exist, the feds can sieze all our assets. It won't be a tax, just a fine.

Perhaps Congress, the authors of the Clean Air Act, and, more specifically, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)—and even biofuel lobbyists—have attended too many motivational seminars in which they were taught: “If you can dream it, then you can achieve it.”...
