>I am sure that as oil prices climb in the next few decades, biodiesel will
become an important fuel. Oilseeds could be bred specifically for this use.
another friend, Ray Peat, [ http://www.efn.org/~raypeat/ ] to whom I passed
the original information on this has commented to me:
>Then, Monsanto will discover that biodiesel fuel is better for human health
than soybean oil.
>Agricultural economists have said that modern methods use at least five
calories of petroleum to produce one calorie of food. Producing the fuel
oil from soybean oil would take additional energy. Using, e.g., ten
gallons of petroleum to produce one gallon of diesel wouldn't be
economical, unless the oil companies have come around to the idea that
petroleum is being regenerated faster than we can use it.
