On Blind Squirrels and Ethanol

Coburn, DeMint Turn to Killing Corn Ethanol Subsidies | FDL News Desk: "I don’t agree with the DeMint/Coburn free market approach to absolutely everything, but the science is pretty clear on ethanol, and even environmental leaders like Gore aren’t bothering to defend it anymore. There are absolutely alternative sources of energy that provide a societal good and deserve to be promoted at the federal level, but first-generation ethanol isn’t one of them. If the subsidies survive they should go to cellulosic ethanol technologies, like wood or switchgrass or even waste."

Not moderated but I do delete spam and I would rather that people not act like assholes.
