I need another day or two to get situated in my new place and then I will be back with my regular blogs. In the meantime this is a great article on the truth of ethanol. I was not aware it takes seven barrels of oil to produce eight barrels of corn fuel. Interesting article. There are many other reasons this is not a solution as well; pesticides, land usage, food crop converted to energy crop, and much more. In the end, the only solution is to reduce consumption of energy. There is some debate now on whether global warming is even real. Even if it is not, there are many other very good reasons we should all reduce our energy consumption.
If we do not permit the earth to produce beauty and joy, it will in the end not produce food, either. Joseph Wood Krutch
