cellulosic ethanol plant up and running!


And in my beloved Black Hills! Ethanol is made from waste wood rather than corn. A much better idea, since corn is a FOOD and wood waste is, well, waste.

The housing collapse clearly explained!


This is a very well written article where even I could understand how the banking industry fudged the rules and caused the housing collapse.
The author says that since the actual value of the collapse is about $200 billion, the effect will be equivalent to a $2 trillion loss in the marketplace. That's quite a wallop.

Happy New Year!
