How Long Does It Take to Recognise a Mistake?
Now that it is perfectly clear that using food (corn in our case) to make fuel doesn't do anything good it was supposed to do, you would think Congress would hustle to undo the damage it is doing. Do you suppose?
Well, Congress (no use even talking to the Bushies), there you have it. Time to undo the damage done by wrong assumptions and too-quick response to lobbyists, no? Kill those ethanol mandates. Stop those ethanol subsidies. Put your minds and our money onto solutions to the energy/environmental problems that will actually work. It really shouldn't take this long.
Hey, Gentle Reader, write your Congressperson. Raise a little heck.
