Screw the cost...

... if there is any possible way we might be able to make bio-fuels from waste products like plastic, weeds and wood (and I mean waste wood, not growing trees specifically for the purpose), then it should be attempted - see here. I'm less enthusiastic about converting fructose from fruit to fuel, because surely the same worries about taking food from people's mouths to put into cars applies.

Of course, the biggest thing people should be doing is reducing their - well, everything. That applies to population, consumption and carbon footprint. If people did that we'd not be in this mess in the first place.
