Saw Thomas Friedman's "Addicted to Oil" Last Night

Happened upon the premier of Friedman's show on the Discovery channel as I turned on the TV trying to relax before going to bed. Very watchable, but certainly almost no depth. For a better critique, see the NYT's piece. I think they're going to be rerunning it quite a bit so you might want to catch it.

At the current price of oil you will see alternative fuels gradually get rolling. It's all a matter of relative pricing.

Today I'm filling out paperwork to get Dept. of Ecology permit to restart a corn to ethanol fuel plant. This sort of thing is happening all over the country.

So be on the watch for the smell of yeast, especially down in the South, where many of these plants were built in the 1980s and then put in mothballs when the price of ethanol dropped. You might have noticed the towers as they tend to be pretty tall (100 ft sometimes). If you're curious about what a ethanol distillation tower looks like, click on my website.

I would think that the Saudis will start opening up the spigots before they have too much competition.
