ethanol advances

Here's how to make ethanol in an environmentally sensible and renewable way that doesn't compete with food (which drives up prices while harming poor countries): Use biological waste materials! The cool thing is that this company is a partner with GM, which plans to put a huge number of "Flex-Fuel" vehicles on the road.

Our energy future is looking less dire.

Digesting cellulose to make ethanol is considerably more difficult than digesting starch into ethanol. It's good that companies are trying to make it practical, but it's a challenge.
