The Hunt for Biofuels Looks Beyond Ethanol A push is on to get more energy from nonedible plants WSJ
"Ethanol will be with us for a long time to come. The International Energy Agency says world consumption of biofuel—largely ethanol and biodiesel—could rise to the equivalent of 4.5 million barrels of oil a day by 2035, up from 1.3 million, or 2% of total transportation fuels, in 2010.
Ethanol produced in Brazil from sugar cane will account for much of the projected growth. Cane has higher energy content than corn-based ethanol, and the crop doesn't need irrigation or harshly deplete the soil. Also, the majority of cars in Brazil can run on gasoline or 100% ethanol."
Are we really going to allow Progressives the power to destabilize the world and fill it will hunger and slaughter for an immaterial amount of 'fuel'? Best case? Enough of the sick children of the corn religion.
We were promised corn ethanol would be displaced by advanced fuel by this time. Yet we can not kill this insanity even on an American natural gas board.
