Perhaps now we can stop using it?
“Corn ethanol is not a climate-friendly fuel,” said Dr. Tyler Lark, assistant scientist at University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment and lead author of the study.
The research, which was funded in part by the National Wildlife Federation and U.S. Department of Energy, found that ethanol is likely at least 24% more carbon-intensive than gasoline due to emissions resulting from land use changes to grow corn, along with processing and combustion.
Did they include the 5-10% reduction in corn-based mpg in their calcs?
I remember stupid leftists running around in cult like manner telling us this is the way to save the planet when first ethanol blend whent in and would wreck small engine motors. They would accuse us of “hating the planet” and call us vile, vile, names. Can we get an apology from the leftist idiots now? No?
“I remember stupid leftists running around in cult like manner telling us this is the way to save the planet when first ethanol blend when in and would wreck small engine motors.”
Even when studies exactly like this one were published years ago. This is not new data. The left called those studies big oil propaganda and the scientists that studied them sell outs that were not real scientists.
Liberals are the best butt for jokes and they aren’t even trying to be the straight man. They can just be themselves and spout the things they are told to spout.
Thank Charles Grassley for this.
