Ethanol is less powerful, releases just as much if not more greenhouse gases as gasoline, and uses vast amounts of water to produce, not too mention taking large piles of what could become …….. food!!!!!!!…… to produce. Which drives up the cost of food. It also causes deforestation and species eradication around the world as forests and jungles are clear cut and the animals intentionally slaughtered to create farms for materiel used to create biofuels.Let's see, less powerful, releases those greenhouse thingys, wastes water, starves folks, deforestation...what's not to like. " Stroke of a pen, law of the land...pretty cool."
Whoa, but that's not all. The EPA requires that you buy not less than 4 gallons of fuel upon purchase. Genius!!! Let's apply that everywhere and get this dog of an economy flying again. Incidentally, can anyone see the correlation of bad law applied here relative to forcing folks to buy health insurance? No? Oh, OK, it's just me.
Also, I'm all for efficient government, but this rolling the EPA up into Legislative, Judical, and Executive branch at the same time is not what I had in mind.
