Who the H! decided that Ethanol made from food-grade plants was a good/green idea?
No matter what they say, Ethanol is NOT a solution, at least not on a large scale.
For a farm to use some of their 'excess' production for fuel for their own machinery, that might make sense, but when the entire production of a farm goes to Ethanol, then what?
(It wouldn't surprise me that if you study all steps of the production, from planting to it's ready to mix in with the ordinary fuel, you end up with higher CO2 numbers than with ordinary fuels)
They'd get better results if they started banning some of the worst fuel-hogs out there.
(Maybe a $100 price on Hummer drivers? Should reduce the CO2 production considerbly... just remember, headshots won't work. No vital organs... )
I'd mention the Ford F-series among the hogs, but there are actually a few of those that are in use by people who need that kind of vehicle. (Only a few, though)
