HOGWASH!!! Alternative energy is PIG MANURE!!!

Before you make a complete and total fool out of yourself, I would suggest a little research. Hydrocarbons found in fossil fuels are relatively short carbon strings, with a bunch of hydrogen attached. Turkey guts, methane gas, lumber, grass cuttings, feathers, tires and just about anything that once was living are just LONGER strings of hydrocarbons. Combinations of temperature and pressure will break down these long strings, into short strings - which is EXACTLY what a petrolium refinery does with crude. So, by simply changing the process a wee bit, we can produce Gasoline (yep, gasoline) from turkey offal, dead pigs, cows, grass clippings, seaweed ... whatever.

The process is NOT even remotely like the process of using french frie waste oil to power a VW.

Might I suggest you just review this article, originally taken from 'Discovery' magazine.

I'm not the one in danger of fooldumb!!! I don't care where you pulled this crap out of! Discovery Mag is NOT a reliable scientific source ANY LONGER!!! You're the one that better "run for cover!"

This is just another load the farmer hauled away...
You could tell by the smell it wasn't hay...
next it'll be scientific as fungschway...
