The whole "alternative energy" scenario is economic horse manure!
Not all of it. Geothermal used to be considered alternative energy. Biomass has considerable promise and we have to do something about overgrown vegetation anyway.

I just saw a study article posted on FR about a month or two ago that said that biomass, when you figure all the fossil fuel it takes to process it to a fuel of it's own, you're already behind the danged eight ball!!!
I remember it being a beautiful article and I think I saw some replies by you on it too. Can't remember the title and I'm not worth a tinker's damn at searching for these things.
