Analysis: Putin's Energy Bazaar - SpaceDaily  President Vladimir Putin's current visit to China is dominated by energy politics. China, the world's seventh-largest economy and expanding rapidly, is energy hungry and in search of increased petroleum and natural imports. The Kremlin, now at center stage of Russia's energy sector, intends to leverage the country's vast energy reserves to exact as much geopolitical and financial benefits as possible. Russia and China already have strong trade ties, expected to be $20 billion this year and forecast to reach $60 billion by 2008.    

FORD CAR THAT USES HYDROGEN IN INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE

Ford touts cleanest internal combustion engine - MSNBC  Left:  Ford's H2RV, seen here at a green vehicle event in Shanghai, runs hydrogen through an internal combustion engine.
