2. They're using two fossil fuels to generate a non fossil fuel!

How dumb can you get?

Seriously, China produces a lot of sorghum straw, especially in the northern provinces. This can be converted to ethanol very easily, the straw is very high in sugars.

Unless they've completely tapped that resource and are looking for more alternatives, this operation might be interesting on a theoretical level but will do the environment much more harm than good.

No thanks.
