Miles Per Acre

EcoGeek points out, “Lots of people are getting excited about all the various technologies for using biofuels of one sort or another as a replacement for fossil fuels, and they may present a short-term option.”

But look!
Biofuels fail the Miles Per Acre test.
Without displacing one food producing acre, solar systems are hands down the winner. Yes, biofuels are needed, for alternative chemical feedstock and geo-favored fleets or power, but it’s clear that solar technology “produces 1000x more energy per acre than soybeans”.
