As the state scrambles to cut everything from University budgets to juvenile rehabilitation programs, they do this. Brilliant. Spacehusky (talk) 21:00, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

We need to strike a better balance. cane ethanol is one of the most promising biofuels. --SVTCobra 22:12, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Perhaps cane ethanol should be pursued, but it should not be grown in the Everglades. There is nothing common sense about trying to grow traditional agriculture in such a specialized environment. I don't know how the State of Florida will afford this since only a few weeks earlier they considered cutting all Everglades restoration programs, but the entire South Florida megalopolis will not be able to maintain itself unless care is taken to return the Everglades as close to their pre-drainage state as possible. -- 02:20, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
