You can literally make biofuel out of anything
kudzu, yet you choose to grow the most destructive crop you could find in the very environment you're trying to save
cleaner emissions, relevant in California because CA has stringent air pollution standards. Converting an otherwise noncompliant vehicle from diesel to ethanol or natural gas (or even propane) is a cheap way of making compliance AND averting cap-and-trade pollution taxes. Many bus agencies and power companies (such as PG&E) already made the switch
however, due to the nature of ethanol (it has to be imported from the midwest), most companies prefer NG or propane because it's more plentiful and readily available
t. serious discussions pro
Fuck biofuels that eat our farmland and produce CO2 emissions as well as NO2 emissions because of manufacture costs.
Also losing Bees would destabilize our entire ecosystem and fruit bearing crops. That decision is easy to make.
Lose the corn biofuel.
>"the bees are in danger" meme still going strong
If your base your activism on mainstream news headlines, you're going to have a bad time.
The link you posted is talking about honeybees, explicitly farmed honeybees.
>the number of managed colonies -- that is, commercial honey-producing bee colonies managed by human beekeepers -- is now the highest it's been in 20 years.
The OP's link is talking about wild bees. Those bees are dying and have been for some time.
We're staring a worldwide food crisis in the face and people still think that ethanol is a great idea. 1 tank (75 Litre) of ethanol contains enough calories to feed a person for a whole year. What a waste of food
>We're staring a worldwide food crisis in the face
No we're not. It's just capitalism. Can't pay? Can't eat. That's it.
There's actually more than enough food to feed everybody. And the livestock.
