    People have been saying this for years, now they complain, man President Obama has really ticked off the media.

    It IS stupid to grow so much corn for ethanol. Green isn’t always “green”, but sorry folks and Kochs, coal is ALWAYS dirty and black. There is no such thing as truly “clean coal”, period.

    The federal government’s ethanol requirements are creating a new environmental nightmare. The Associated Press laid out all the bleak details in a recent article including hillsides eroded and conservation areas gone as farmers scramble to find new places to plant corn to cash in.

    It is so funny seeing such conservative cartoonist with a newly minted concern for the environment, but hey, better late than never. Welcome to the “We’re-all-in-this-together-and-will-have-to-do-something-or-live-among-our-own-feces” club. Oh, and Obama should be criticized for this, I don’t care if he’s a Rep or a Dem.

    Thanks for the link. It says Bush, jr signed the ethanol mandate, so the plant in the cartoon is mis-labelled: it should be the ‘Bush, jr-Obama Bio-fuel Industry’.


    As the article points out, so much fossil fuel us squandered growing maize to make ethanol that the net carbon savings is small.


    This is another thing Obama should have closed, and, while Bush, jr started it, Obama must take a full share of the total blame.

    Ah yes, that liberal chant,“Drill, Baby, Drill!”
    And, “Fracking does no harm!”

    Yeah, right.
    Remember James Watt?
    The amazing thing is that Nixon was president when the EPA was formed. He gets credit for that. But then burning rivers, Lake Eire awash in phosphates, and a few other problems did get politicians’ attention.

    Ethanol is never green because it always takes more energy to produce it then even coal.

    @black dog

    and there are pesticide resistant insects that are growing due to corn being planted over and over to cash in. The survivors continue to speed up the passage of their resistant genes to future insects.

    The ethanol mandate is there for one reason and one reason only: the first presidential caucuses are in Iowa. And what do farmers in Iowa grow?

    When the horse was around the debate was growing about feeding horses vs feeding people. Now it has come full circle. Obama is trying to kill off the car by feeding the cars poison to please the environmentalist.

    Interesting, and typical: not one single critic either read and/or understood my first sentence. Ethanol makes gasoline engines LESS efficient, among other things. This variety is also NOT suitable for food btw, and the farmers are NOT rotating crops!


    The same “coal folks” pushing coal, are also the ones pushing natural gas as an “alternative” that is also far from clean, and IS being proposed to substitute for gasoline, and other fossil fuels that are STILL “fossil fuels”! (They also just happen to be involved in wind and solar projects as part of their overall strategy to control “energy” in the U.S..)


    For electricity, we probably DO need to consider nuclear, and there is already more than enough mined in the U.S. to provide many, many, years of operations. So, why the big push to wipe out more pristine lands by “conservative” interests to open still MORE uranium mining, on PUBLIC LANDS of course!

    So burn coal/Natural Gas to produce in rural states for the big population big polution states, and then tax the bejeezus out of the rural states for some kind of a carbon credit scam. Now that is the Obama way.

    How many farms have you seen lately? You paint a nice picture of the past, but now more and more farms just grow corn to cash in and fertilize the cr@p (pun intended) out of the soil.
