Corn-A-Hole, Again

The bleating from the Corn-A-Holers has been loud lately.

Why?

Because the Feds are deciding whether to stick it to drivers even more than now.

That despite a few important facts:

...many researchers are convinced that 15 percent ethanol in gasoline will cause problems in small engines in everything from lawnmowers to portable generators and boats.

...many environmental groups dropped their support for corn-based ethanol after two studies published by the journal Science last February concluded that ethanol production actually increases the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere.

...“the most important factor” in rising global food prices “was the large increase in biofuels production in the U.S. and the E.U.”

If anything, ethanol content-requirements should be reduced to zero.
