Fuel? You've got to be kidding. Electricity is an energy carrier, not an energy source.

There are two major problems with ethanol. The first problem is its EROEI value is ridiculously low, about 1.25. In other words, it takes one barrel of fuel to make one and a quarter barrels of ethanol. The other problem is that ethanol is made out of food. With the drought (worst in over 50 years) hitting our prime corn-growing states, the price of corn (which is ubiquitous in just about everything these days) is going to go up...way up. That means not only food, but gasoline is going to go up. The only people that are going to be pleased are the corporate agricultural assholes like ConAgra and Monsanto. Although refiners no longer get the 45 cents per gallon government subsidy for blending ethanol, corporate agriculture will continue to reap big profits for turning our food into car fuel.
Ethanol is not the answer to our fuel problem. Even if we used every grain of corn to fuel our cars, it would only be a small percentage of the 18 to 20 mbd of fuel we use every day in the USA.

Organic milk is better for your health, better for the environment, and more humane for the cows, plus it lasts longer than most regular milk and, imho, taste better. It's a win-win-win situation for everybody involved.

The only concern I have is that it's gotten so popular that there are now unethical companies trying to cash in on the fad without a genuine commitment to organics. They follow the letter of the law, but not the spirit, and continually lobby for looser organic standards.

In fact, one of the most popular brands in the country is notorious for keeping its cows on farms that are little more than feedlots. Before getting attached to one particular brand, be sure to do your research to determine if they are ethical producers. The Cornucopia Institute and the Organic Consumers Association are good starting points.

Thought Natural Gas was the answer to our declining reserves in petrol? Guess again:

Disturbing article on Nuclear Power:
http://oilprice.com/Alternative-Energy/Nuclear-Power/Nuclear-Twilight-in-Europe.html
Looks like the disaster in Japan is going to deep-six the nuclear power industry. Too bad, since that was what so many people (including M. King Hubbert) were banking on to pull us through the Peak Oil crisis. I hope everyone enjoyed the Industrial Revolution, because it's not going to last too much longer.
Oh, and enjoy the internet while it lasts. The grid will be coming down as well.
Or, you dumbasses can sit there and talk about totally inconsequential things such as hockey or what songs fifty years ago sucked.

Sure would be nice to create more jobs that cater to a green economy. Total energy independence will take time but we have to start someplace... PV technology has come a long way and it's becomming more cost effective every day but solar thermal discoveries are also demonstrating there value. Just think of all the things that are manufactured with the help of heat.

These are kind of fun if you are looking for something decorative to stick around a garden or in a flower bed. Definitely not something you would want to use for delivering a lot of bright light but they are an excellent way to add a little color to spice things up in the yard. So far, they have been very reliable and have performed exactly as expected. Be careful if you have a dog that likes to chase things, my dog still runs up to the door and tries to bark at these at least once every night! Can't fault the product for my pet failing bird identification class though, still a solid reliable choice for outdoor solar accent lighting.

This is a fun decorative set that adds a nice splash of color to your yard without adding to your electric bill. Quick, easy set up and an attractive price make these an excellent choice for upgrading the look of your garden. The quality of the light is excellent and they have held up nicely in a variety of outdoor conditions. Excellent product!
