Ethanol is now "out" as the favored alternate fuel.
Or maybe we should just ignore all of this, just like we conveniently do on all those agenda counter-productive facts the Deniers keep pestering us about.
"So, incredibly, when the hidden costs of conversion are included, greenhouse-gas emissions from corn ethanol over the next 30 years will be twice as high as from regular gasoline. In the long term, it will take 167 years before the reduction in carbon emissions from using ethanol 'pays back' the carbon released by land-use change. As they say, it's not easy being green."
"Yet special blame also belongs to the environmentalists, who are engaged in a grand bait-and-switch. They stir up a panic about global warming, and Washington responds to the political incentives. Then those policies don't work and the greens immediately begin pushing a new substitute, whose outcomes and costs are equally uncertain. But somehow, that never seems to discredit the entire enterprise and taxpayers keep footing the subsidy bill. Our guess is that these new revelations will also be ignored. They're too embarrassing."
That's probably more accurate.
It's too difficult for that crowd to actually be intellectually and academically factual.
