    Please do not take my discussion as an attempt to shoot you down, put down TD, or lessen your, or anyone else's interest in it.

    I'm just trying to point out a thermodynamic fact. All along I have maintained it is a good thing. I'll drop this here. I'm just wondering if you see what I am aiming at?

    Thanks for a good discussion.

    •  My only quibble here is that the waste is extra (none)
      after we have the product that the energy was expended to produce, and it is in that sense that I'm considering the waste a freebie.  We didn't use the energy to grow turkey innards , but to grow the carcass that we roast for Thanksgiving.

      I think we're in agreement here except on that level.

      There was a science fiction story about 25-30 years ago about a future that was hydrocarbon poor and mining was a going concern almost like  goldrush in old landfills.  They were so grateful that their ancestors had the sense to put plastics and stuff in common areas so they could have them.  I can't remember the writer or where I read it, but it really stuck.  If anyone recognizes the story, I'd love to know.
