Biofuel Bust

Does biofuel have a future? I cover the many different angles of alternative energy, pollution, and climate here in the blog and you probably remember that in the last few years I have soured on most of the biofuel industry – especially grain ethanol. I have nothing against the actual people who work in the industry […]

Corn Crop (and grain ethanol) Suffering

The latest U.S. Drought Monitor has been issued and it still does not look good for much of the U.S. and half of the state of Wisconsin. Drought conditions have worsened in much of the country, however, a lot of the heavy rains that fell in the Ohio Valley, the Deep South, and the Gulf […]

The Promise and Peril

I suppose it could be said of every age in human history that there was “great promise and peril” involved with all we could imagine to do and build. I wonder if today’s dichotomy is more extreme. I have often heard it said that we are currently in a

More on the Future of Biofuel

Yesterday I profiled a solar power company that is furthering progress in alternative energy as solar still looks to be one of the better options for cleaner energy production in the near future. What about biofuel? Has anything changed in the new year? There are no doubt some great advances in chemistry and biology that […]

Where Did the “White Christmas” Come From?

Through the years I have become more and more amazed at the number of people who hate Winter. I am unsure as to the exact reason but it is interesting. Many people I meet actually use the word “hate” when talking about Winter. I would say the percent of people who at a minimum loathe winter, has risen […]

Biofuel Debates

Yesterday I detailed what seems to be a slow demise of nuclear power and today I will touch upon the possibility of biofuels as a future source of “greener” energy. As you know, biofuels (particularly grain ethanol) have come under fire recently. I have even soured a bit on the prospects of grain ethanol, even […]

I often blog about alternative energy issues and regular readers know that I have recently soured on the prospects of biofuel as a replacement for traditional fossil fuels (especially grain ethanol). The reasons are many and I have gone through it a few times, however, you might enjoy reading this article which does a good […]

More Storm Surveys, Biofuels

Following up on the storm surveys Brian first mentioned yesterday, the NWS out of Duluth has confirmed two brief tornado touchdowns. One in Ashland county and one in Iron county. In both instances their survey indicated a brief tornado touchdown followed by more widespread straight-line wind damage. As Brian mentioned yesterday, the storms were showing strong […]

Climate Justice

AGW News: Following up on yesterday’s theme, here are a couple more articles from people attending the Copenhagen Climate Conference, both are complaining, but from different perspectives. Ronald Bailey compares this conference to annual conferences from earlier this decade. Fred Pearce thinks a Copehagen agreement could be worse than doing nothing. It seems the biggest […]

Private Property

People who know me and read the blog know that I am partial to individual freedom and not so much toward government intervention. This is a lonely position to take in today’s world, and it seems more lonely every day as I follow the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) and alternative energy themes out there in […]
