You are absolutely wrong about embodied energy,who says strawbales
must come from kansas or iowa,,straw can be grown on site,,,and since
the straw is a byproduct of any grain or even ordinary grass the
machinery has been built to raise GRAIN,straw is what is left after
the grain has been harvested,straw is grown in every state in the US
and every province of canada,,Rice straw in California was burned
until they found a great use for it building energy efficient Homes
and other buildings..Stawbales are the most efficient,having an Rvalue
according to testing laboratory UL of at least 25-30 depending on
how tightly packed the bales are,,a fine product and inexpensive too
