#2 You mean a power station burning marijuana? Does that mean the British have found a use for Galloway and similare leftists ? (connecting them to the grid)

#4 "Burning elephant grass would only release the carbon dioxide that the plants soaked up anyway while they were growing, she said in the newspaper."
Same is true for gas and oil, which derive from plants.

#5 More Kyoto inspired and funded idiocy, consuming far more cheap energy than it produces. Planting Oak and Pine trees would be much more ecological friendly, but then people would get upset when they were cut down to burn in a power station, hence Elephant Grass an abomination everyone will hate.

#6 The Guardian said the plant could be a key element in the quest to tackle climate change - one of Blair's priorities this year as Britain holds the presidency of the Group of Eight powers and prepares to take on that of the European Union from July 1.

Yes, as we all know, Blair paying attention to this for 1 year will solve ALL of Kyoto's problems, eh? And, I thought the EU was dead..so Blair's taking the Presidency of a non-functioning union on July 1?

#11 To anyone who has ever tried to burn a pile of lawn clippings, this looks like a scam. How do they plan to get grass dry enough to burn efficiently? And imagine the amount of smoke it would produce.
