The state of Georgia just granted Range Fuels a permit to create
the first cellulosic ethanol plant in America. HECK YES! This is
very exciting … why?
Cellulosic ethanol can contain up to 16 times more energy than is

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the

using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
