I hope his talk explains how futile, expensive and bad for the environment bio-fuels are.

Even Al Gore says so:

if he wants to 'invest' in advanced biofuels, he should take the subsidies from corn-ethanol and apply them to his advanced biofuel projects.

He's the secretary, after all.

If you remove the ethanol subsidy and the mandated use, it is essentially a worthless product.

So what. Add up the cost to this boondoggle and who cares if it loses jobs, it will happen sooner or later.

No it is not....If ethanol was given the amount of subsidies that BIG OIL was ethanol would be used more then oil. But then again no one gets as much tax payers money as big oil.
