Posted on 06/01/2014 6:29:39 AM PDT by rktman
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has suddenly reversed its support for biofuels. The panel now admits growing crops for fuel poses risks to ecosystems and biodiversity.
Scientistsand many Green activiststurned against ethanol and biodiesel years ago because it took too much land. However, the United States and EU governments have kept their farmer subsidies. Environmentalism had suddenly become political payoff.

No oil pipelines
It’s almost like the Elitists want us to live in a world with no energy at all. An Iron Age existence of famine and disease, while the lords live in castles up on the hill.
I want the alcohol out of my gas NOW!
The ethanol boondoggle is nothing more than a farm subsidy program that does nothing to reduce our need for oil. The program exists solely due to subsidies from planting the corn to pumping the ethanol laced gasoline into your tank. With 40% of the US corn crop going into ethanol it is no wonder that food prices are skyrocketing.
I hear Obama's evil laughter now.
“We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects . . . We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of tens of millions of acres of presently settled land”. David Foreman, Earth First!
Shackled Rivers Isnt he Joan’s hippy Son?
“millions of tens of millions of acres”
Soon it’ll be no solar or wind also, since one fries birds and the other frappes them.
You put that very well. They despise people except for who they consider their own kind. Scary stuff.
ping for my long time tag
LOL! And just where do you want the alcohol? :>}
IPCC a little slow upstairs aren’t they?
On EBT cards to keep the natives restful.
LOL! Careful. I think the word “native” just might be a “trigger” word. :>}
The elitists want to regulate and control everything. It’s a variation of protection rackets run by criminals.
There was only one biofuel that ever made any sense. It is the one that the oil companies quietly embraced and even built test production facilities for.
Algae based biodiesel. Among its advantages.
1) Diesel engines are everywhere, and with minor modifications, they can run on it. They are scalable, running everything from motorcycles to railroad trains to ships that need higher speed than those that use ship oil.
2) Anywhere that has warmth, sunlight and gray water can grow algae. South of the Mason-Dixon is year around production, unlike plant crops.
3) Algae production is magnified if they are given industrial waste gases, CO2 and nitrous oxides, that otherwise are very expensive to dispose of.
4) Some types of algae are 50% oil, by weight. Processing this oil is done by squeezing. Then it is mixed with ethanol and lye, which is a reusable catalyst. Then it is filtered and has 1% petroleum diesel added as a preservative. There are a few more steps, but they are cheap and easy.
5) Probably the two biggest problems are keeping out other types of algae, and keeping the water the right temperature for optimal production.
Unfortunately algae Diesel is much like controled hot fusion, decades of Research, no economic process yet.
