"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?

Fuel – 24 January 2009

The last segment of the program was about the possibility of growing genetically engineered trees to provide the raw material for the manufacture of fuel instead of using corn for ethanol. This makes a lot of sense to me, since the corn kernels that are used for ethanol production are better used for food (fuelJ) for humans (not as food for animals to be slaughtered).
