Do you think that biofuels can replace fossil fuels?
What are the advantages and disadvantages of biofuels?
Biofuels are only marginally better than fossil fuels, and take us down the road to disaster only a bit slower. Burning is burning, and it puts carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Further, we use a lot of petroleum growing the biofuels, and we waste land that should be feeding people.
The best solutions are wind, solar, wave, and tidal power. The use for plants is in bioplastics to replace petroleum-based plastics. This way, we no longer need petroleum at all. We slow global climate change, we bring fewer toxins into our environment, and we work more with biodegradable substances. Check out my series of hubs on Go Green for more.
It appears that bio-fuels are the direction that things are going .
It seems, some things get better, then found to be harmful in some way. Seen an old movie. A scene shows people stepping over droppings from the prolific horse traffic moving people and commerce up and down the street.
A few cars were seen. You know, horse, cow, and chicken manure seem to grow tomatoes that taste as sweet as candy! Those chemically treaty things that look like tomatoes, have the name of tomato - taste like carbord.
They popularize cars - got rid of the poop! They plowed the planes with new mechanization, and the planes became a dust bowl. They do make bio fuel with any kind of vegtation, but the money was placed on corn. Corn cost $3 a bushel and few complained. Then to $10 - for car liquor. Now, their pattening gene made plants - guest who's getting rich of that? Will that help?
After seeing all the good The $ me first, has got us into, I guess I wouldn't mind horse poop while I shop for tomatoes grown with it. Range fed beef, and corn - that taste like corn use ta, not the sugary pulp I get now. What do you think?

You have to laugh. You've got our president pushing electric cars and here come's a TIME article siting a new study in Environmental Science & Technology saying that those electric cars aren't so clean after all. Apparently when they looked at the use of electric cars in China, the...

Had a good discussion with a relative. She drives a large SUV and her husband owns a large pick-up truck. They fly for their work often. She and her family use quite a bit of fossil fuel during their daily lives. They are also strong believers in global warming. I told...
