    Biofuels seem economically infeasible to me so far. We'll see if that changes.

    I did see one exception recently. At the state fair they took all the cooking grease from the food vendors, tons of it (perhaps literally!), and converted it on-site to biodiesel, which was used to fuel the tractors and other vehicles used to run the fair. Very cool.
    • Certainly much of it IS likely to be economically infeasible, just as air travel was economically infeasible for most people until mass use planes like the DC-10 came into existance, and more recently the "budget airline" business model (which ruthlessly optimised out almost all the procedural and luxury fat).

      There's certainly economically feasible models, such as sugar cane in Brazil or canola/etc oil crops and so on.
