DON'T SAY I TOLD YOU SO.
ETHANOL IS A LOUSY FUEL SUBSTITUTE, CREATES MORE GREENHOUSE GASES, WILL COST MORE TO PRODUCE AND GETS LOUSY MILEAGE.
There is a Keystones Kops quality to the whole Global Warming Panic. Not only can no one say for sure if the Earth is warming or cooling — or whether that is necessarily a bad thing — but no one can prove that man has anything to do with it. But of course that is not stopping politicians from their do-something games, even if they are not quite sure whether what they do improves or worsens matters.
Now comes a report out of England that biofuels from corn and rapeseed create 50%-70% more greenhouse gasses than petroleum.
What is sad is that the average American does not realize that their tax dollars are being spent on a technology that is worse than using petroleum for fuels. Also, what is stupid is our Congress has already passed laws that require the U.S. to be using a certain percentage of biofuels..
Thank you Great Britian that you do have enough fortitude to print the facts. Our liberal politicians, green wackos and the liberal press will deny these findings even though the facts are coming out.
Instead we have billions of dollars handed over to corn farmers in the United States to produce a fuel that reduces MPG, harms the engine and may use more energy to produce than it creates (the studies on that point have been debated). And now it turns out that ethanol is more damaging to the atmosphere than oil. WHAT A CROCK.
Governments shouldn’t subsidize a damned thing. Let the marketplace take care of this. Had we simply done a few tax credits 30 years ago instead of creating the Department of Energy, we’d probably be done with oil by now.
