using this standard for ethanol use is like not allowing a new Walmart store to be completed because a new coal fired electrical plant in China will have to be put online.
Pass E11 or E12. Ethanol is a must for our countries sustainable future. The facts say an oil shortage is coming (http://www.theoildrum.com/node/5979#more) America needs the jobs and we need this energy! It is the only thing we have going. Please do not fall to those who do not understand how investment in agriculture and research is allowing us to set up a sustainable world. First generation biofuels need to have growth to get to 2nd generation fuels.
This is a good one. I would like to say that the EPA is full of communists, anti-God atheists, Marxists, homosexuals and lesbanese!!! It is down on the American Christian Farmer and Barak Insane Osama will ruint this contry with his politiks and stuff like that. Just because I am a farmer who has dirt under my toe nails doesn't mean that I'm an idiot or a moron. God will watch over the American Farmer and will not leave him prostitue to the doings of Washinton. I am from Kansas and I am a Sam Brownback Republican not a Dwight (crap for brains) Eisehoward Republican like some people are. Did you know that Bob Dole owns a pineapple farm? That is the kind of weirdo he is. God Bless Sam Brownback, God Bless Kansas and God Bless the American Christian Farmer!
