But I like drinking ethanol!
Granted, I generally don't drink it straight, but there's so many interesting flavors of it available.
Methanol, Propanol, etc are the ones you don't want. Ethanol you just don't want too much of in a sitting.
I mean... you gotta live your truth but my advice is to find other means of dealing with climate change!!
If you can turn CO2 to ethanol it at least makes fuels carbon-neutral.
Not likely. It takes energy to turn CO2 into ethanol. That energy has to come from somewhere.
Of course, you could do it the slow way -- use the power of the sun to turn CO2 into sugars inside of plants, then let yeast turn the sugars into ethanol. (Even there, however, the yeast releases CO2.)
Hey, I'm not against that. More ethanol for us.
(but seriously don't drink ethanol haha)
