Promising Switchgrass study

7 posts in this topic

This definitely looks like good news for Ethanol. I still question whether large scale burning of Ethanol would be any healthier for us.

This article shows both sides of the argument.

There are alternatives, such as battery-electric, plug-in-hybrid and hydrogen-fuel cell vehicles, whose energy can be derived from wind or solar power. These vehicles produce virtually no toxic emissions or greenhouse gases and cause very little disruption to the land—unlike ethanol made from corn or switchgrass, which will require millions of acres of farmland to mass-produce. It would seem prudent, therefore, to address climate, health and energy with technologies that have known benefits.

there is no reason you can't use both. Plug in Volt running ethanol as it's fuel.

Screw you Exxon.

I would add in other alternatives as well, especially biodiesel and hydrogen for fuel cells and ICEs.
