Fill Your Vehicle From a Diesel Tree

 

Mike Jubow, a nurseryman from Australia, has recommended that farmers plant a tree imported from Brazil to help counter the rising cost of fuel. He says that 1 hectare of the trees could supply all the fuel required to run a medium-sized farm.

The tree can be tapped and each one will produce approximately 40 litres of oil annually. The oil can be poured directly into a diesel engine.

"Now we've got another oil crisis, our farmers' cost of production from many avenues are skyrocketing, so their viability is being threatened - now is the prime time to get in and plant this tree," said Jubow.

  i don't like ethanol  
 
if ethanol can help, it won't help very much. there are so many cons to go along with its pros. with current productivity, less ethanol is produced than the petrol put in to create it. a recent study also suggests that ethanol may be worse than gasoline in causing smog.

so far, electricity seems to be the most realistic of the green energies. create more windmills, turbines, and efficient batteries and we're set.

Really?
I thought Brazil had it cracked?

Electric cars are good, but renewables and batteries arent.
Even the tesla car batteries would be useless for a nationwide backup system.

  It would make sense...  
 
...to plant vast areas of these trees in Australia (as long as they can actually get to irrigate them), rather than pulling down trees in the rainforest for ethanol production.

brazil? yeah right.

conventional batteries are crap. however, these seem promising:

  Cool  
 
Useful for vehicles and emergergency power, but it could never run a national power grid for any period of time.
Like a cloudy calm day.

I suppose you could have one in every home with microgeneration.
Use nuclear plants over the winter, someone get redstain, he knows more about this stuff than me.
