Science can be fun

Science Friday interviewed Nobel Laureate George Olah, who's recently written Beyond Oil and Gas which argues that methanol, not ethanol nor hydrogen, should be the energy curency of the future. While that's an interesting premise, the interview was pretty bad, as Dr. Olah cannot be forced to come to a timely point. However, the podcast is almost worth a listen for the breathy, gravely, Eastern European accented voice of the doctor, a hilarious combination of Darth Vadar meets Count Dracula, methodically rumbling things like "Soviet Russia" and "The question you ask pushes me toward the point I am trying to make."
