I'm thick; that's where I got it in the first place. So now the question is: just how inexpensive is it? Cause if it is VERY inexpensive (forgot about sugar cane) It is a use for our huge coal reserves and we're energy self sufficient, virtually, forever.
Also, I find it hard to believe there is a law that says one substance must be made from another substance--ethanol from corn. Maybe it is to get the subsidy. Weird.
