    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.

    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?

    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.

    mskemple: agreed. My “Husky” tractor and “weedeater” both void the warranty if you run ethanol content fuel in them, which until recently was hard to find in my area. My Lotus? Don’t DARE run ethanol into very expensive Webber carbs! That’s also why Oregon initially limited non-ethanol to mowers, tractors, etc, and “antique” cars over 50 years old, which didn’t suffice.


    btw, I was against a recent solar panel project proposed in a residential zone, because of the visual impact of this very large array. I’m FOR alternative energy, WHERE and WHEN appropriate, that even includes nuclear power, IF they stop demanding more unnecessary mining for uranium, in sensitive areas especially, and valid requirements for design changes, and of course, IF we can get fusion to work efficiently, great idea!


    But, of course, I keep returning to the fact that CONSERVATION, is the greatest single direction we need to go, and it does NOT mean a huge sacrifice in "lifestyle’ for most. And, in appropriate cities; mass transit would save HUGELY on cost and pollution problems, but we’re “individuals” who love our cars, and freeways. (Yes, I’m a “gearhead” as well, but my performance car, also gets 35 mpg while hauling two people, which is one more than 90% of commuter cars are carrying!

    @jack75287

    Class, class, CLAAAAASSSSS! When was this law written? Anybody? Anybody?

    Try 2007. Yup, not Obama in the WH at that time. He has supported it since, but he didn’t write it, didn’t create it, didn’t originate the idea. Put that blame where it belongs, then get back to reality, fantasies are not facts.

    If Obama didn’t approve, do you really think that the EPA would be allowed to recommend lower use of ethanol in fuels? Come on you brilliant thinkers, he can’t be a dictator as you claim and not be running this issue as well.

    Oh, yes, it is also true that if he is such a dictator that he controls everything, he certainly had to know that the ACA rollout was not going to work, thus would have stopped the rollout to avoid embarrassment, right?

    Your logical circuits are flawed.

    Once again, another person who does not know the facts about the federal money being used for alternative energy development.

    Tell us, oh all knowing Wasradar, just what percentage of federal support for energy development has been a failure? Anyone? Anyone?

    That’s what I thought. Fact free zone.

    In the part of the “corn belt” where we live, corn is planted on the same fields year after year. They put tons of fertilizer on the fields (liquid) and force the ground to give. Eventually the wiser farmers give the fields a year of another crop to recover, but then they go right back to corn the next year, never longer. Very few fallow years here.

    Please, please get some good food and some vitamins into yourself, your synapses appear to be drained.

    Obama is not trying to kill the car off, idiot.
