Why being unreasonable is a virtue

Abstract:
Chevron's experiments range from the some-what conventional (squeezing more energy out of feedstocks like coal and tar sands) to more radical approaches like fuel from biomass, hydrogen, and even nanotechnology. Chevron's chief technology officers, Don Paul, unreasonably believes that rather than finding more stored energy to mine form the ground, molecular engineering - literally rearranging the sequence of atoms and molecules -- is the key to the global energy future.
