Morris Miselowski’s thoughts:
Over the next decade we will see many attempts at using biofuel’s, some will succeed and others will go back to the “drawing board’ the problem here is not the at alternate fuels don’t exist or can’t be made, the problem here is that there is no real commercial demand for it (yet).
Unfortunately I think oil prices have to get much higher and we all need to feel far more uncomfortable about using existing fuels before the real work will start on solving our future energy needs.
