did you know you can make ethanol out of a still used to make moonshine. all you have to do is take out the last step of the process in making moonshine, moonshine is literaly enthanol, 100% ethanol, not this 85% enthanol they are selling

....but thats what ive heard anyway, i wouldnt know anything about moonshine

AfterburnerCurrently the best way to reduce car emissions is with hybrids, not Hydrogen.

The best way to reduce car emissions is not to use cars. ;)

Hybrids are expensive. Hydrogen way overrated. Ethanol/ biodiesel production limited.

There is, and it's a sad and scary thought, no replacement for oil. Oil was a once-off, formed millions of years ago. There is no alternative, and no real combination of alternatives that will allow us to continue using as we use today.

With America's corn production, converting 100% of that corn would only account for 20% of fuel needs.

It doesn't mean that we must completely abandon cars, but we need to make some big changes to how we live. You can complain about not being able to bike to the places you need to get to. This isn't the fault of bikes, it's the fault of city design being based on cars as the primary unit of transportation. We don't just need to change our fuels, we need to change our cities.

Not going to happen where I live. Unless you want to be a bum on the street. Remember, we all don't live in the city and some of us have a long drive to work ;)

I know. That will have to change though. The conditions that created that way of life are going away. Suburbs used to be connected to town with tram/light rail lines. These were ripped up as they were a nuisance for cars, but now that cars are becoming less viable we could do with them again.

I don't get it...

That is the current production. If we would use more of our land and got rid of the subsidies for famrers to grow less, we could get around %50 or more of our fuel from ethanol.

You can choose to bike everywhere. I will keep my car thank you very much:)

beef flapsAnd who is going to pay for that, and how much would that cost each homeowner? and would it really be worth the cost? Remember the chick from Seinfeld, Elaine, She has solar panels all over her house and drives some weird ass electric car, very gay. She is a weirdo.

i dount know why electric cars need to look so gay, they should make them look like normal gas engine cars. solar power costs about $15,000, but with a lot of people buying it would drive the price down a lot i would say like $5,000-$2,000. and it would pay for itself in a couple years. also if you dount use all the power used by it, you can sell it to the electric company and they pay you full as much as you pay. its an investment for the long run. if everyone homeowner would pay for the solar it would cause power plants that polute to stop being built. and this would drive the price for energy down, causing more clean power to be used on the manufacture of ethanol and biodiesel. :)

Governor Bush, a few weeks back, just signed a Bill for investement into Alternative Energy sources, and Ethanol and Solar Power.(Like the ones on roof tops) I myself wouldnt mind if they start requiring Soalr panels built ontop new houses, and slowly getting more house holds to buy and set up on older houses.
