Biodiesel, fuel cells, solar power, geothermal power, geothermal heat, wind power. These are all major movers towards finding solutions to our world-wide dependence on oil and gas.
Last night our neighbor came over to discuss his latest research in exploring biodiesel. He is pumped. He is excited. He is passionate. He’s in the agri-business and sees biodiesel as one possibility of getting rid of excess waste of grains he can’t sell due to spoilage. He talked of the possibilities of creating fuel from wood chips to algae. Old hay in the fields? It can be used to make fuel.
Some of this discussion came from my concern about food products being sold to create biodiesel instead of feed the people around the world. Last year there was a huge outcry around the world because our food prices had increased substantially. That friends was due to speculation on the commodities markets around the world. It was not due to the supply of food grains. The farmers can’t sell their grain products for what it cost them to produce even. Farmers in Canada have a surplus of food product for this very reason he explained. So my friends the problem is laid at the door of Wall Street and stock markets around the world if you are paying more for food where you live.
Frankly, the price of gas has decreased immensely here. Our food prices were sent soaring to reflect high gas prices. Those food prices have never come down with the decline in gas costs.
