Wow! They are now talking about the possibility in a few years of taking carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, turning it into carbon monoxide, and then converting it to ethanol.

Talk about killing two birds with one stone.

Thought others might be interested if they missed it in the news.

"But it demonstrates the feasibility of using electricity that you could get from a renewable energy source to power fuel synthesis — in this case ethanol. There are some real advantages to doing that relative to using biomass to produce ethanol."

Yes, these $$$$ pie-in-the-sky fantasies play the renewable card. If the process is so good, let it power itself first. Otherwise, it's just another boondoggle.
