Comment I'd rather drink water than drive my car... (Score 1) 230

Given our current methodology of "usurp natural resources first, ask questions later," should we maybe think about the consequences of making it easy to monetize the demolition of water? The last I checked, we had a finite water supply and had found neither a way to synthesize it or a nearby celestial body containing any extra. I just do not see it doing us that much good to opt for fuel to power non-living things over fuel to power ourselves. Granted, I would love to see the rise of alternative fuels that do not involve the mining and burning of fossil fuels, coal, and other toxin-laden substances, but we might ought to keep this one in the lab.
