Interesting comment from David Benson, a bit off topic, but bang on the money about alternative technologies. This has a lot of things I like, especially the Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis plant which uses hydrogen from electrolysed water, (electricity generated by wind) and smokestack carbon dioxide to make ethanol. It would be interesting to see how Doty Energy's (http://windfuels.com/) economics of production stack up and also if the ethanol/acre claim is based on the factory's footprint or that of the turbines.
