The cause of Climate Change is still up in the air.


The cause of Climate Change is still up in the air. Sherlock Holmes: “It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data.

I just checked the price of corn. It is $ 7.82 a bushel. One bushel of corn makes 2.5 gallon of ethanol That makes the feedstock price to make ethanol $3.13 a gallon. Add to that 50 cents to make the stuff and distribute it and the price per gallon is $ 3.63. Since the […]

NASA’s Glory Satellite failed a second time. A Climate challenge.


The Satellite Glory has failed us once more No measuring aerosols forming offshore. Is NASA unable to say GAIA is stable? The jury’s still out for the swindler Al Gore.
