Refineries facing heavy government fines for not blending a biofuel that doesn't exist

1/23/2012 - It seems almost too absurd to be true, but in the land of leviathan government, where the layers of bureaucracy are so intertwined it is impossible to navigate them, comes the revelation that the U.S. government has now taken to fining companies for not using a required product that doesn't even exist. In...

Study suggests 'green' biofuels are more environmentally harmful than fossil fuels

The Biofuels Scam, Food Shortages and the Coming Collapse of the Human Population

4/23/2008 - It was one of the dumbest "green" ideas ever proposed: Convert millions of acres of cropland into fields for growing ethanol from corn, then burn fossil fuels to harvest the ethanol, expending more energy to extract the fuel than you get from the fuel itself! Meanwhile, sit back and proclaim you've...

Understanding the Transition From Seed Corn to Biofuels

3/21/2008 - We are about to witness and experience the greatest sustained rise in grain prices seen in the last 30 years. This rise will include wheat, rice, and maize; these three comprising over 90% of all grains cultivated on the planet. Let's do some digging to figure out what is causing this sharp increase. The...
