'Nuf Said

Biofuels Deemed a Greenhouse Threat - New York Times NYT - not exactly part of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy....
Almost all biofuels used today cause more greenhouse gas emissions than conventional fuels if the full emissions costs of producing these “green” fuels are taken into account, two studies being published Thursday have concluded.
Ethanol is a giveaway to ADM - with some benefit to all corn farmers in America. (Just a quick question: How many farmers do you know? I know quite a few but then - until just recently - my family owned 2 farms, and cousins still farm.) Can you spell "farm subsidy?"

Making biodiesel out of waste vegetable oil - the stuff McDonald's throws away at the end of the day - makes sense. Very little else does.
