I'm not trying to make fun of Shawn Dell Joyce's ignorance (the term ignorance is not inherently demeaning in any way - it's just often used that way), but when I say she was ignorant about
, I mean she was terribly ignorant about biofuels. Joyce, a sustainable artist in New York, was recently educated about what defines the difference between the two and wrote an article. Her piece, called "
The difference between ethanol and biodiesel
," highlights to a huge biofuel ignorance that is is out there in the population and seems like a good topic to bring up. We've heard before about the
150,000 people who mis-fuel their tanks each year
, and this is with the main fuel types being unleaded and
. Throw in E85 and B20 and now what've you got?
For all of our readers who are in the biofuels business, take heed of Joyce's lesson here. We'd got a lot of educatin' to do. Was a time when each of us didn't know the difference, right?
