Fuel For Thought

There is no energy crisis, only a crisis of ignorance."

Somebody needed to do something, and it was incredibly pathetic that it had to be us.

- Jerry Garcia

We are confronted with insurmountable opportunities.

- Walt Kelly

For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled.

Global warming threatens pine forests

The blaring headline reads:

Global warming threatens pine forests, forcing federal officials to shift strategy

More Band Aids. Watching Rome burn and fiddling. Bioroot Energy is headquartered in the middle of the beetle kill epidemic in western Montana and there is no way that treating individual trees can stop or shorten this mortality event in our western forests. None. We must get in front of the underlying problem and rethink what’s driving it.

Climate scientists really (really) need to start talking to energy scientists about responsibly converting all types of waste and fossil “carbons” (municipal wastes, biomass, coal, methane and coal-fired CO2) to a clean, 138 octane fuel that displaces the hydrocarbon fuels, i.e., gasoline, diesel, methane and coal, whose emissions are driving the climate change feedback loop.

When pine needles, barks, branches, cones and any other biomass along with what’s in your trash can are being turned into a benign yet powerful alcohol fuel that displaces fossil fuels, things will begin to change for the better. Not until.

The Next Elephant In The Room

China’s explosive growth. A rapidly deteriorating natural environment. A rapidly increasing middle class at least 3-4 times larger than America’s, with similar tastes.

“Since opening up its economy 30 years ago, China has gone from being a nation of bicycle riders to being the world’s largest car market. But now its major cities face traffic gridlock. To clear the roads, Beijing’s government has started a lottery system for new car licenses. Cars are among the new status symbols of China’s growing middle class. New passenger car sales in China last year rose 33 percent to 13.8 million.”
