Ethanol farm it on land that could be used for food
Process the corn which could be used as feed
Waste gas to farm, process and ship it
And make major investments it developing it

Or invest invest in cleaner burning gas

Like people won't make war over corn fields

Seems legit

Mann’s Screw Up #7.1 – Semantics
Most people hate discussing semantics. Unfortunately, it’s necessary when people try to abuse semantics to win an argument. Michael Mann’s defense of his “trick” is one of those cases.
As you’ll recall, Michael Mann’s “trick” was to append the instrumental record to his temperature reconstruction, smooth the resulting series then truncate it so it appeared to only be a reconstructed series. That’s unquestionably dishonest.

The lack of "basic reading skills" will prevent Bozo, Oz, Spaceballs and certainly litesong from understanding this.
Hey,.. I demonstrated just the other day that you, and others like you, don't understand science and mathematics to read a graph. It was no trick.

Reading skills don't make anyone knowledgeable in science.DUH.

Exactly!! They show their hypocrisy by demanding we lower GHG emissions, but then want to repeal laws already in place to reverse it........because it personally costs them more money!!!!

[QUOTE who="ratdownthemiddle ","middleofthedownwr onggully"] buy them on the open market instead of being credited the rin for splashing ethanol into their volume percentages.
BLAME THE EPA.....[/QUOTE]

Yeah, I do blame EPA. Direct subsidies for ethanol were ended in 2012. Indirect subsidies for ethanol blending equipment have just ended. As many have already said, & I reinforce, showing the very inefficient power production of ethanol in low compression ratio(9:1 to 12:1) gasoline engines(10% ethanol blends decrease mpg by 8% to 5%), MORE oil is consumed by the "ethanol in gasoline" industry, than the industry can save. With the passage of the Feinstein/Coburn bi-partisan bill to stop ethanol blending in our nation's gasoline stocks, a 10-15 times increase in 100% gasoline AND the decrease of the "ethanol in gasoline" industry, efficient 100% gasoline production will once more power our gasoline engines. The ability of gasoline engines to immediately increase efficiency AND come nearer to EPA estimates of gasoline engine, will show the hoax of "ethanol in gasoline".

All America will see the greater value of 100% gasoline compared to 10% ethanol. But with the 10-15 times(more?) greater availability of 100% gasoline, the open market will NOT have an extra $1 per gallon stuffed on 100% gasoline vs. 10% ethanol blends.

Let gasoline engines burn 100% gasoline efficiently.
Let ethanol engines burn 100% ethanol efficiently.

Science is never certain. What is certain is that you and your science illiterate friends are being led by the nose

The Earth is warming. CO2 is a greenhouse gas. Burning fossil fuels increases the CO2 in the atmosphere. That is scientific. Dispute those findings if you can!

Professor Sir Brian Hoskins, director of the Grantham Institute for Climate Change at Imperial College London, said the latest WMO assessment shows a now familiar mixture of natural variability and human-induced climate change.

"These annual statements document a striking long-term trend, and one thing is clear: that our continuing greenhouse gas emissions are a crucial driving force in the changing climate," Hoskins said.

"If you take a system like the earth's climate and give it as big a kick as we're giving it, we're going to have to be incredibly lucky to not see severe climate changes at some time."

Feeling the heat

*Last year was the sixth warmest year on record - tied with 2007
*Thirteen of the 14 warmest years have occurred since 2000
*The decade 2001-2010 was the warmest on record
*Each of the last three decades have been warmer than the previous one

P.S. Read, deniers, read.

Just wanted to report that weather in California today is beautiful. Not too hot. Not too cold.

Little dry but we can handle that. We are still growing and exporting food for well well beyond our state population. Some rain predicted for tonight and tomorrow.
