The U.S. federal government has put a lot of money into clean car companies this past year, including about $8.5 billion through U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing Program (Ford got $5.9 billion, Nissan $1.6 billion, Fisker Automotive $528.7 million, and Tesla Motors $465 million) and another $2+ billion for advanced batteries (some say it was more than that). There may be more coming down the pike.

John Edward's biofuel plan has some interesting ideas. Lets take them one by one. First, expansion of an EPA school bus program that hopes to replace diesel with biofuel. 90 percent of school buses run diesel which can easily run biofuel and not spit so much nastiness at the kids. The EPA program has already shown healthy expansion as we've written. It's something everyone can agree on. No one is pro-soot that I know of anyway. Lets get to the tough stuff.
