Oh, that is just sick. I don't know how else to respond.

You know, it's possible to run a car off of canola oil after you've fried chips in it. I suppose this will be better than using animal byproducts. I'd feel a lot better buying canola oil rather than mutton to fuel a car. But the truth is that both of them are better than gasoline, since gasoline isn't very eco-friendly.

I'd rather the waste went to something. If you're going to kill an animal, use all of it. If we can ever stop the exploitation of animals for food, there won't be any byproducts like tallow to use for these fuels, so it will become a moot point.

Just to clarify: If I was, say, living off the land, and I killed a deer, I would like to know how I could use as much of it as possible, so as not to waste anything. I would find it lamentable to see animals being killed for their meat, and the rest of the animal left to rot.

My over-riding belief is that no life should be expended casually and without serving to sustain other lives necessarily.

That is gross. Obviously they never should have been killed, nor the animals, but I don't think letting the rest go to waste solves the problem. I think everyone agrees, too, but is being argumentative because this is a message board.

LOL. That's what I get for making such an unfounded declarative statement.

I guess the environmentalist and frugalist in me can't stand to see a life killed for so little purpose. Again, this entire point of view hinges upon the animal being killed anyway, then what to do with it once the meat has been cut away for sale? How on earth is letting it go to waste the best thing? I can't see it. Call me blind, but it seems disrespectful to the planet and to the animal to let the rest of the carcass be wasted at that point.

i find it interesting how they say it's better financially...is it ethically? I do agree with Epski that what has been killed should not be put to waste, but I also agree with 1vegan that eventually it would be profitable to breed the sheep just for fuel. I personally think it's discusting that they even thought of this as an alternative when there are so many others. A while back a solar powered car was invented, but it was booted becaus thegas industry wouldn't allow it. They were bought out of business. I wonder what the gas industry thinks about this.

There may be other conspiracies at work here, but I know from my studies on this that solar-powered cars were highly impractical, unfortunately, even more so than electric cars.
