Ethanol: A Bad Idea

13 February 2008

It turns out ethanol is even more counter-productive than previously thought (according to new research). Maybe it's about time all three presidential hopefuls flip-flopped on this one.

A lot of people seem pretty enthusiastic about ethanol subsidies, so my question is this: Why do we want our government to invest in something that drives up food prices, costs us money, and is worse than traditional gasoline when it comes to climate change? I'm having trouble seeing the up-side here.
