An idea for KY's university presidents on energy self-sufficiency

Kentucky University presidents Lee T. Todd Jr., John A. Roush, Larry D. Shinn and James R. Ramsey opined in the Louisville Courier-Journal yesterday that we need to put greater emphasis on energy independence:
High crude oil prices and increasing dependence on foreign oil have sparked an intense discussion about energy diversification across the country.

And as America searches for responses to the energy independence riddle, Kentucky's energy and agriculture expertise will be more valuable than anyone could have imagined.
Hey, I've got an idea. There are some trees out there that could be used for firewood. Why don't the universities just allow logging on the forests that they are responsible for stewarding?

Oh. Whoops. Looks like Lee Todd already thought of that.
