Anything Good on TV Tonight?

Oh yeah, Mango Mussolini.

This ought to be good for a laugh. After a few rails of Adderall, Mr. Sniffles will try to con-vince ‘Murica that we’re in some kind of national state of emergency.

We aren’t, unless you count a traitor residing in the Executive Mansion as a national emergency. More like national nightmare...but I digress.

Ex game show host will use the usual scare tactics to rally the trailer trash base. Works every time with them. 60% of Americans see through his lies, will roll their eyes, and most won’t even bother to watch. There’s always something better on Netflix.

You ain’t gettin’ your wall. Well, not unless Mexico pays for it like you promised a few hundred times.

But hey, keep dreaming!

To be fair, I don't think

To be fair, I don't think Congress would approve building The Wall even if Mexico promised to pay for it.

60 minutes pissed away some

60 minutes pissed away some air time on Cortez Sunday night, but this was truly worth watching .This guy has found an inexpensive and efficient way to turn bio mass into fuel , food additive and a biodegradable plastic that they can set then time on...well worth watching. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/marshall-medoff-the-unlikely-eccentric-inve...

The holy grail of alternative

The holy grail of alternative fuels, cellulosic ethanol.
For a while there, a news blurb came out about every week about some new company had broken the barrier and would be scaling up for production.....just as soon as this, that, or another grant program was tapped.
I doubt that it has been realized, but with someone with the intelligence of Leslie Stahl (sar) asking the hard questions, how could you go wrong.

Ugeneto , just a what if

Ugeneto , just a what if .What if his process ,which appears to, really is able to produce low cost alternative fuels? Think about the potential for growing hemp as a feed stock. Pretty cheap to cultivate and harvest ,grows on marginal land which new England has a lot of.....

The cheapest feedstock is

The cheapest feedstock is corn stover, what's left over after grain corn is harvested, and straw, especially wheat straw.
In some western states, wheat and corn fields, quite often, are burned to get rid of the straw in order to plant something else.
I noticed the mention of some proprietary enzymes that have to be used.
That usually is the stumbling block in the whole process.
All the other processes such as replacing hydro carbons with plant based feedstocks for plastic and densifying the leftovers for biomass burning are already in use.
It would seem that the only process that is unique is the way the cellulose is broken down in order to release the sugars.
The tip-off that it may be a lot of BS is the 77% figure compared to corn ethanol.
Color me skeptical.

We've heard the biofuel spiel

We've heard the biofuel spiel so many times. I wish they'd grow the hemp-like plant for fuel, but I suspect they're actually growing one to smoke instead.

I'll wait for their cheap biofuel. It could be a long wait.
