Unnecessary alarm

The headline on the ABC web site nearly gave me apoplexy this morning: Scots create whisky based fuel. Don't tell me, I feared that things have come to the pretty pass where they are burning the beautiful elixir rather than drinking it. And just when that wonderfulvideo feature on Crikey yesterday had sent me down to the local for fresh supplies. Oh the relief to read that it is just the by-products of the distilling process that are being used to make the butanol biofuel. And how great to know that with every tipple I will be helping reduce the world's reliance on fossil fuel!
