On the bleating edge
In a comment to this piece, Mister Snitch suggests that I'm something of a trend-sniffer, perhaps even ahead of the curve.
More or less simultaneously, the InstantMan gets a letter from a reader:
The prospect of making fuel from waste biomass inspires reader Brian Cubbison to utter a single magic word: "Kudzu."
Watch out, Saudis!
Now set the Wayback Machine to the first week of October 2006:
Kudzu is a vine prevalent in southern states. It's considered a pest. Why isn't more research being done to use kudzu for making ethanol? It would be a source of alternative fuel as well as help rid the woods and fields of this pest.
I was in fact quoting from a letter to the editor of the Oklahoman, but still, you heard it here first, or at least less late.
Let it be said that I have stood on the shoulders of, if not giants, certainly some rather tallish types.Posted at 7:50 AM to Blogorrhea , Family Joules
