Does anyone have a clear understanding of all the alternative energy options out there? Cuz I’d like to get a handle on it all one of these days.
This article raises a lot of the concerns I’ve been hearing about ethanol as fuel. Primarily that the fossil fuel-intensive style of American industrial agriculture (to run the farm machinery, manufacture the fertilizers, etc.) and the fossil fuel-dependent methods of turning harvested corn (or other plants) into ethanol, that there might not result in a net benefit. You’ve got to use gas to make ethanol to replace gas.
Anyhow, if anyone could recommend some sources where I could get the scoop on biofuels and hydrogen cells and solar power and such in a relatively straightforward manner, I’d appreciate it.
