        href="http://www.technologyreview.com/Energy/19694/?nlid=659">Oil from Wood
        - Dutch start-up venture, Kior, has developed a process for creating "biocrude" directly from biomass.  The process could prove relatively cheap, relies on a nontoxic catalyst, taps into the present fuel-refining and transportation infrastructure, and produces clean-burning fuels that can be used in existing engines. (MIT Technology Review; Nov. 9)
      • Biomass > Turbo-cooker Wins Prize for Clean Burning - El Salvador inventor Ren Nunez has developed the Turbo-cooker that reduces the amount of fuel needed by over 95% and could make life better for 3 billion people who rely on primitive wood- or biomass-burning stoves for cooking and heating. He now has a prize and a patent. (TreeHugger; Dec. 2)
      • (OT) U.S. National Debt Grows $1 Million a Minute - During the Bush administration, the debt has gone from $2 Trillion to 9.13 trillion, which amounts to around $30,000 per every man, woman and child in the country.  It is out of sight and out of mind as long as new lenders keep coming aboard.  (NY Times; Dec. 3)  [Only Ron Paul has a plan that would resolve this problem.]
