Governors-Global Warming
(2008-07-14)
(wgvu) - Governors from the coal fields of West
Virginia to the corn fields of Iowa are joining Michigan's governor
in talking about moving beyond ethanol produced just from food
sources.
They're not talking about replacement so much as supplementing
-- using switchgrass or wood waste products, for example, along
with corn.
The current buzz is cellulosic ethanol, or ethanol made from
plant matter. Governor Granholm has pitched the idea of using more
wood products because of the large number of forests in Michigan.
The issue was on the agenda of the National Governors'
Association's summer meeting.
