Here’s a skeptical article about biofuels with a long debate in the comments. It might turn out to be true that biofuels are not practical but the “don’t even try” attitude seriously annoys me. I suppose he thinks it would be a perfect world if we all threw out our toys and moved to little organic farms and lived in one room cabins with only candles for light. And who knows? Future generations might be forced to live that way but I’m not ready to give up yet. Excuse this little burst of patriotism but we’re Americans and we don’t give up. We try things, we fail, we try again, and again, and eventually we find a way.
