Weather patterns are shifting north and both the sea and the land are warmer. Hurricanes are breaking out further north.

They used to go through the Gulf. Now, they go through the South.
Are there more tornadoes in wintertime, also?

Actually the corrosive issues have not been solved, just the new tanks are made out of a different material. The energy content is still only 2/3 that of gasoline and the reason why manufactors stopped using steel tanks was that they are more subject to rust than the material that replaced it and they were heaver which resulted in reduced milage.
As for the CO2 levels, the amount of CO2 produced to get it into the tank is about the same as the gasoline. Don't forget that the farm equipment used to raise it uses diesel, as well as the trucks that transport the crop to the production site and then transport the finished product to the consumer. That the fuel all those tractors and trucks aslo has to be transported, not to mention the fertlizers and pesticides which are more often made from oil.
Then there the little fact that a bad year can raise the cost of the crop, not to mention deprive the poor of food so that someone like you can feel like they are doing something to make the world a better place dispite the fact that ethanol usage is making it worse.
Why not do something better and use that corn, sugar cane, and sugar beets to feed the hungry, Plant clover to feed cows and sheep so poor kids can have milk and warm clothes instead of switch grass.
Amazing. Tina is actually thinking beyond simplistic absolutes for a change, weighing tradeoffs just like a good environmentalist. I knew it was only a matter of time, even if one hell of a lot of time.

However, switching dryland biofuel crops for cattle feed? Nope. Reducing cattle will become a global priority, Hindus, Masais and Texans notwithstanding.

Don't know, but hurricanes spawn tornadoes.

You can have a tornado any time of the year.

Final(?) tally from Christmas storm tornadoes:
The system that spawned nearly three dozen tornadoes across Gulf Coast states on Tuesday was headed to New England and the Eastern Seaboard.

That indicates that yesterday generated 3 times the number of U.S. tornadoes of any previous recorded Christmas.
