When topics like this come up that ignore realities and even begin to mention 'conspiracy theories' or brush at what some see as political spins it doesn't lend itself well to productive discussion.
I spoke to an engineer friend and he thought that ceramic-lined engines were the way to go as well. Much less brittle and certainly much cheaper.
