More on ethanol…

Bah! I hate to read stories like this about my native Minnesota. Click HERE to read about Minnesota farm-lobby groups canceling the grant of Minnesota researchers who contributed to a recent study showing how ethanol may contribute more greenhouse gas than gasoline. The headline is “Reality Hurts Farmers Feelings.”

I loved that story when it came out, since it aligns with my views. And, I’m not surprised to see an industry group kick back. But you do wonder — will an industry group ignore such a profound warning just to make their constituents a buck or two? ‘Seems like there’s an ethical issue in there somewhere.

UPDATE:

Just to drive the point home, click HERE to read a story about the other big problem with ethanol, water.
