The easiest way to avoid wars in the Middle East has nothing to do with geopolitics…
It has everything to do with ethanol, sugar cane, switchgrass amd other biofuels….
Dr. Andrew Pouring, inventor, aerospace professor, and motor engine expert; Morris Meyer, a prime researcher into the conversion of cellulose (plant products) to fuel and a candidate for the Virginia State House; and (the appropriately named) Al Weed, a farmer and Chairman of Public Policy Virginia, who led the study of switchgrass production for rural Virginia.

    Alternative energy should be the number one priority of our nation oil is a finite substance!
    We need a revolution to take hold across the land where rural communities co-op wind and solar as alternate energy sources for our homes. We are now seeing the big corporations doing what we the people should be doing because the corporations can see the dollar signs on selling wind and solar to the masses, whereas if communities banded together to put in place the same options each community would reap the benefits at lower costs.
    People are beginning to think green and it is at last beginning to catch on so everyday we see more recognising the need for alternative fuel/energy etc…
    Just my two cents on this subject!

    Didn’t Ann Bancroft die and Arnesen partially eat her corpse before being rescued by roller-blading polar bears?

    What happened to Liv Arnesen and Ann Bancroft’s journey across the North Pole to bring attention to the global warming issue?
    Were the below normal temps, frostbite and drained batteries a concern?
