Whole Foods sucks. Not only are they overpriced they stopped carrying Seattle Sorbets!!! I now have to go to Metropolitan Market for that and they only carry it occasionally.
More wonderful news about biofuels:
Biofuels may threaten environment, U.N. warns
Not only do biofuels promise to exacerbate climate change in the name of combatting climate change, they also promise to have a hand in anther massive, irrevocable crime upon the planet, the loss of biodiversity. There's a book I recommend that details this less publicized environmental crisis.
Sure, there's a small chance that in the next 20 years we'll see scalable biofuels from algae or switchgrass or something, but that's not where the money is to be made now. It doesn't take a genius to realize that many of the people who are most actively preaching hope for good biofuels are doing so because they're earning their living off bad biofuels.
To view corn ethanol or biodiesel from palm oil as a bridge to renewable biofuel from algae is a bit like waging perpetual war in the name of peace.
Whole Foods rules. You're crazy, Cato.
I guess you'll have to carry your overpriced Whole Paycheck (as my wife's coworkers call it) stuff in those reusable bags they sell. Oh the horror.
ahhh, there's my home team! rock on, jags!
Cressona's right. Palm oil and corn oil are bigger threats than petroleum. At least the oil's underground; the palm oil requires wiping out rainforest to grow, and corn (for ethanol or biodiesel) takes more oil to grow than it saves. And even cleaner sources of biofuel, like the mythical sawgrass or soybeans, would require replantings on an unimaginable scale to make a dent in oil. It's easy to see a jar of biodiesel as as something clean, or to natter on about recycled fry oil, but that's just classic microscopic hippie thinking in the face of what the global economy actually is.
In Germany, they don't give you bags. You want bags to carry stuff in, you bring your own.
Also, corn ethanol belongs in my stomach, not in my car.
in Russia, groceries bag you!
Nothing "crazy ass" about "Spaceship 2"; it effin' rocks! It's a larger, more powerful version of Burt Rutan's X Prize-winning "Spaceship 1", which made two successful sub-orbital flights in 2004.
Heck, if I had $200K burning a hole in my pocket, I'd have signed up for a flight a long time ago.

So does sugar. My great fear is that Americans won't think twice about bulldozing the last of the ecosystem to fuel our obsession with cars. I hope I'm wrong.
Orangutans might very well go extinct thanks to palm oil. If it's that or giving up driving, I'll give up driving.
