Our Huddled Masses of Oil, Yearning to Break Free

Our Huddled Masses of Oil, Yearning to Break Free

It takes fifty gallons of water to produce one gallon of ethanol. How wasteful.

Sir Richard Branson’s bio-fueled flight of two hours required the oil of 150,000 coconuts.Think of all the poor people who could survive on 150,000 coconuts. For a two-hour flight, that’s dreadfully wasteful.

Fortunately, the earth produces oil. It longs to purge it. Hollywood types ought to relate to that impulse.
