Ethanol...what a sham.

It takes 4-5 gallons of water to make one gallon of Ethanol. So our next crisis will be fresh water for the ethanol plants. I bet that goes over really well in the upper midwest.

Yes, for better and worse, there is such a facility being constructed there:

No offense to those that gain employment from such, but,,, I agree that based upon current technology and knowledge, ethanol is a farce - until it can be profitably produced from something in this country besides a normal food source, and its thirst for water is tamed.

Default Ethanol: NOT the answer!

Ethanol is NOT saving us anything...it's an INFERIOR fuel to gasoline, gets WORSE mileage than gas (even if you can buy it for the same $$$/gal, you pay MORE because you burn more of it for the same miles), and is corrosive to automotive components. And, it costs very nearly as much energy to make, as you can get out of it. (don't think it's saving the environment...it's not) And now, to add to the misery, it is driving up the prices of milk, milk products, and cheese:
Forget worries about $4 gas ... now it’s $4 milk - Food Inc. - MSNBC.com
Ethanol IS NOT the answer to our fuel problem. There is only ONE positive thing about ethanol: we can make it in our own country...it's not imported...and it creates a few jobs here. Other than that, it just plain sucks.
Why should I use a fuel that makes my vehicle get WORSE miles per gallon? I want MORE MPG, not less! We are moving in the wrong direction! I wouldn't be surprised to learn there are some crooked politicians behind this stinking mess. (and no, I don't work for the oil industry, I have no connections with it in any way, shape, or fashion...)
Don't just take my word...you can Google the facts on ethanol as well as anyone...we are being sold a rotten bill of goods...
