I posted a question on 6 of the Pickens plan groups a few days ago asking if anyone has heard of the book. And was interested or had concerns in the possibility of alcohol for fuel instead of natural gas. Because of what I see as some of the obvious problems getting Natural gas on that level to replace gasoline in Florida thou I have no practical knowledge in this area. Can you believe I have had no responses, not even some flame telling me the food chain line???
However while working a convention one of the questions asked of the group was how many ears of corn does it take to fill an average gas tank. Answer: 517, then the speaker (a pretty big hitter in the financial world) came out and augmented the answer that that was the same amount of corn it took to feed a child for a year, there for ethanol is a poor idea. That's the close minded thinking that is being feed to the business world as well as to us through the media. So I guess it should be no surprise.
