Hi, I accidentally got on your mailing list and I didn't mean to.  Could you please remove me from it?  I get like thirty posts every day, that I don't want to read and it's hard to keep up with it all.  So if you could take me off the list, I'd appreciate it! thanks,
  Will Eberle

Point taken.  I admittedly was thinking of products like Icynene vs.
straw, but it seems fossil fuels really are part of our entire world.

           Fossil fuel is still used to manufacture and
transport the majority of green building products (not natural building

        I'm afraid that fossil fuels
are used for the production of most straw and since some of it is
coming from Canada, there's also transportation costs. "Natural"
building materials are not necessarily immune from the environmental
costs of other materials.
