Interesting thoughts but aren't there some important limitations in the use of ethanol fuel you are glossing over here? For some things you just need good old-fashioned petrol.

Stupid Equity Guy

I completely agree on the need for petro products in the supply stream. The US is the third largest producer of petro in volume in the world behind SA and Russia, it was the worlds largest producer for decades. The US has kept its east coast and most of the west coast off limits along with about 1/3rd of the GOM, not even commenting on the arctic reserves.

This article was not about the ample long term reserves the US has of petro products, if it chooses to tap them, but about how the US has moved up the "food" chain and is grabbing for control of a must have.

That is, YOU, must have air to breath, water to drink and food to eat, everything else in life is an upgrade. The US is seeking to gain control of its exports of food and decide if it is in the US benefit to feed the world @ X price. We will be able to start to control cash flows internationally again as we convert food into ethanol and the world realizes it does not have enough to eat.

Its a geopolitical food play that is hidden inside of the ethanol label. Its not about some corn growers converting their crop into booze and saving the US energy issues.

Ethanol as an energy source is a joke in my opinion. A bad one...

but as a Geopolitical weapon, it could kill more people then all of the wars of the 20th century combined once the hunger is out of control around 4th world nations and there are not reserves to tap to feed the hungry. Thats when things start to get interesting.

i would never have bought anything just because it was practical, would not show soil or was guaranteed to last a life time.

If the US is faced with an energy supply disruption, then the US will convert its supply of food into bio fuel. The nations that supply us with computer chips or energy can eat their own products


we need to fundamentally change the behavior and methods of the way we do things in life. not just change the way they are done. why spend more money to make the same machines that are hurting the planet keep running on safer material. there is no point.
