Put that in your iddy-biddy conservative man's brain, ff, and SMOKE IT!
That's all nice wonderful, but ethanol is not the way to do it. Currently there isn't ANY energy technology that can compete with fossil fuels in terms of safety and affordability. Nuclear, solar and wind are all FAR too expensive. Bio-fuels are either inefficient or pull food out of people's mouths. Yes, I'd love to see us get off being dependent on foriegn oil, but the way to do that is by using clean coal technology, not over-priced, pie-in-the-sky concepts that are only affordable through MASSIVE infusions of gov't $$$. We have more energy tied up in easily accessible coal reserves than the entire ME has in oil. But the idiots whining about CO2 are keeping us dependent on using oil instead of coal. Oh, and don't even think about babbling about acid rain - it never happened. The pics you see of trees with their leaves eaten away are the result of a blight that was running through the Eastern part of N. America and the rising acidity of the open water in the area was result of the coal industry's efforts to reduce ash (an alkali) and the water returning to it's normal acidic levels (according to the studies carried out at the directive of Pres. Jefferson).
