YMMV. But I dont see enuf power in a mobile sized collector to provide
the power a tractor needs for even a double bottom moldboard.

I saw a U of GA study on sorghum. 100-120 gallons of ethanol per acre on
about 6 gallons of ethanol fuel. But you'd need good soil and enuf water
for it to be juicy at harvest.

I'm surprised there's not more work on parabolic collectors for solar
electric generators.

I dont buy it,  We shouldn't drill at all.  We should fill the coffers and
reserves with oil from elsewhere.   Pump the crap back into the wells if
necessary.   We should have about a decade in reserves.  Save ours until
everyones is used up. Then drill for ours when everyone else has used theres
up.
