And really, so what if they do? Someone has to do it. You can, I can. There's an etanol plant going in about 6 miles from here, will be up to full production in 3 years. The coop where my sister lives in Oklahoma, same deal on a bit of an earlier schedule. Much of the cost disadvantage right now is in economies of scale and startup costs. Far as I'm concerned, we should subsidize the hell out of those startup costs & get this thing going.
