Biofuels Feasibility on Grass Substitues Explored

Sorry I havn't been posting lately, but here is Professor Smith's latest. I will be sure to post all of his upcoming youtube videos, which would be prudent to subscribe to.

Biofuels, Part II

I think the wikipedia page describes them the best, biofuels are a serious alternative to the future funding of more MPG's.

Specifically, "green diesel" seems like it has potential, as the wikipedia page puts it:
Green diesel, also known as renewable diesel, is a form of diesel fuel which is derived from renewable feedstock rather than the fossil feedstock used in most diesel fuels. Green diesel feedstock can be sourced from a variety oils including canola, algae, jatropha and salicornia in addition to tallow. Green diesel uses tradional fractional distillation to process the oils, not to be confused with biodiesel which is chemically quite different and processed using transesterification.
“Green Diesel” as commonly known in Ireland should not be confused with dyed green diesel sold at a lower tax rate for agriculture purposes, using the dye allows custom officers to determine if a person is using the cheaper diesel in higher taxed applications such as commercial haulage or cars.[14]
Algae, which is actually being used in experiments at MIT to determine its propriety with electricity when properly provided with sunlight, is a great alternative. But will it work with cars? I'm not sure...

Brazil has started acquiring "green" fuels, so it has already come into practice, hope it works.

Attorneys in Law for Biofuels

I am sitting here and thinking about the socio economic implications of biofuels, and how one might get an attorney to litigate, which is especially hard in California. There have been everything from litigious services on car disposals (which you can read my excellent blog post down a little ways on car donation) and attorneys who have also talked about biofuels, the discussion for the day.

What is really interesting about these no fuels is that, thankfully, they haven't really been heavily regulated yet. Without the regulation, the biofuels haven't succeeded, which in terms of an Adam Smith invisible hand on the market, would essentially mean they aren't ready for prime time. Maybe a good thing, the governments' unwillingness to get involved, lest another malfeasance.

I will research this a little more, but it certainly raises questions if the government might regulate it. Subsidies is the worst thing we can afford right now and would be disastrous in a market that hasn't picked up yet.

A Serious'd Question

An interesting comment was posted on my last update by Indie, where he coherently asked
Out of curiosity, which would you make a higher priority: biofuels or vehicle weight?
Now my brothers and sisters, I ask of you, what do you think is of greater importance - biofuels, which have so much potential and offers much more in increasing the avg MPG's, or the proven methods gone over in this blog, reduction in vehicle weight.

I think we have found a dilemma of an incalculable epic proportion!

Hello folks,

Well we have obtained 57 followers, which an increase of 20 since my last post, although it is somewhat discouraging I know you all have been supportin a lot which I really appreciate. Hopefully I can find some time to post some more car advice and give up some of my secrets to google advertising, but until then I can't really donate much.

I will also attempt a post on what to do if you have a lemon, and lemon law in the state of california, if you might need a lemon law attorney or insurance attorney. From the reader response, I know this is more of a concern then the plexiglass carbon fiber windows I am developing, which ties into my next point:

Now a couple of you have asked where exactly the donations are going to go - and that's a good point I never really thought about it. But after much thinking and self introspection, I believe the best path for the money to flow would be involved in the carbon fiber windows. I hope you all agree, lets get to followin!

A Challenge For All of You

Now all of you have read the selflessness I try to display in each and every thing I do - from car donations to great ideas in glass design.

I bring this timeless service before self now to you.

This isn't a holier than though horse I am trying to ride, but a dedication I am trying to instill to help us all realize the great sacrifices that must be made in the name of the greater good. Ayn Rand would undoubtedly take issue with the inherent moral qualifications that implies, but this isn't about giving up your own because you have to, but about giving up your own because it's your free choice to CHOOSE to.

It's about doing small things to help the world.

And this is why, when I reach 300 followers, I will DONATE all of my Adsense Revenue. Every penny I make from this website, from every Google Affiliate, from Google Adsense, and every purchase you make from auto insurance and life insurance, will all be donated towards this cause.

This doesn't have anything to do with buying insurance for your car, equity loans, or cash advances for insurance for your car. While those are all smart things to do this doesn't apply in this case. Stuff like mortgage which everyone needs doesn't apply either. But this selfless donation will help us all.

Call your friends, email your loved ones, post on random message boards.

Follow me, and you'll be free.
