Solar vs. Soy

Solar beats Soy biodiesel. Why? Well, an acre of soy creates power for 18,000 miles whereas an acre of solar photovolaics generates power for 2.4 million miles. Also the solar panels can be placed in a desert instead of using valuable cropland.

Windfarms can be places on the edges of fields yielding power without much reduction in crop production. Using food to make fuel is fuelish.
