Default Re: Study only applies to methanol

My God, you're thick.



The study only applies to methanol? Well, let's see:



"Turning plants such as corn, soybeans and sunflowers into fuel uses much more energy than the resulting ethanol or biodiesel generates, according to a new Cornell University and University of California-Berkeley study."



Um, I see the words "ethanol" and "BIODIESEL", kpaul, old buddy. Do you see them? Take another look. See if they can penetrate your filter.



"Plus an ecology professor won't have the last word the market will.. "



No sh!t. And it is.



"Right now biodiesel is selling above regular diesel ..."



What, the diesal/bio blend that's about 90% dino and 10% veggie? Well, hell, that's revolutionary. We're saved.

"We, however, go our merry way running up huge deficits with ever increasing debt service."



And Europe goes on its merry way with cradle-to-grave entitlements that cannot be maintained with a birthrate lower than the replacement rate. Wanna bet whose bills come due first?



But I'll agree with you, government spending has to be slashed to match the most excellent tax cuts.

Exactly. Nothing's ever good enough because it's not [i]perfect>. And free.

Uh-huh. Got a catalytic converter on your 600? I'd be curious how much emissions it produces compared to, say, an SUV.

Too right. Isn't biodiesel like $2.50 a gallon? If gas gets up to $3.00 for a bit, I would expect to see it on street corners. Probably not many, unless gas gets truly ridiculous, but still, it's great stuff.

Not to mention the Enviro Wackos will flip anytime someone makes a PROFIT! We can't have that.



Can you just hear them 50 years from now screaming about BIG HYDROGEN! giving campaign contributions to Bush IV.

Check out www.biodiesel.org. My understanding is that it can be run in any diesel engine with no modification. The only real drawback I've heard to its usage is greater viscosity problems at cooler temps than conventional diesel. I think a great invention would be some sort of heated gastank. You heard it here first.

I also read that they will work on having a portable station at home....Also honda is working on a fuel cell/some kind of hybrid bike.Also I read and I swear I read this is that harley davidson is working on one ,but they still want that potato sound!Only thing I ,d worry about is to get a big loud horn,so people could hear me.I called the company and seemed real nice.They are in long beach,california,and with the terminator saying he wants his state be at the forefront of the hydrogen science,it could make for a fascinating future!A lot of folks slam the left coast,but if anyone can do it,you californians will do it first!Must admit it is just the prelude of things to come. I would love to have a more faster ,longer range one and zoom by cagers .Also no ,one is going to steal it,cause they can,t refuel it!

and before novocaine.... before penicillin..... before antisepsis......before indoor plumbing.... Yeah, the good old days, right, knee deep in horse$hyt with a 40 year life expectancy.
