One can expect supporters to say optimistic things, and
skeptics/detractors to emphasize the negative, so I took note when Jim
Miller, a skeptic, conceded a crucial foundational fact:

"Jim Miller, vice president of advanced transportation technologies at
Maxwell Technologies and an ultracap expert who spent 18 years doing
engineering work at Ford Motor, isn't so convinced.


But then he says:

"I have no doubt you can develop that kind of [ceramic] material, and
the mechanism that gives you the energy storage is clear..."
