    Ethanol and why George Dubya pushed it so hard






    Cause it takes more fossil fuel to harvest ethanol than the ethanol provides in the end. 1 Square meter of land produces 1 watt of power whereas 1 square meter of photvoltaics gives you 120 watts per day and solar modules last 25 plus years these days.

    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Over it's life span a solar module will recoup 10 to 30 times the energy used to produce it.
