That's why you can't figure, if the supply of 100% gasoline rises by 10 to 15 times from its low 5% availability, the price DIFFERENCE between 100% gasoline & 10% ethanol blend, will decrease from its high of $1+.

love ethanol, it makes us burn more gasoline, and use corn, thereby denying food crops. Win for money hungry people like me. Win win.

actually it won't. you still don't understand what i've tried to explain, son. the more 100%(cbob) sold will only increase the rvo's of obligated parties. hence d-6 rin's will increase in value (the reason 100% gasoline is higher already) since they will have to buy them on the open market instead of being credited the rin for splashing ethanol into their volume percentages.

BLAME THE EPA.....

Ethanol, used to dilute our nation's gasoline stocks by only 10%, lowers mpg by 8% to 5%, in low compression ratio(9:1 to 12:1) gasoline engines. To stuff worthless ethanol in gasoline engines, also saps land that should be used for food for 500 million people. Support the Feinstein/Coburn bi-partisan bill to eliminate dilution of our nation's gasoline stocks with ethanol.

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.

Naturally, Mann doesn’t admit such. Instead, he attempts to abuse semantics to cover it up. On page 210 of his book, he attempts to say his trick had nothing to do with hiding things:

" The full quotation from Jone’s e-mail was (emphasis added),“I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (i.e. from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline.” Only by omitting the twenty-three words in between “trick” and “hide the decline” were change deniers able to fabricate the claim of a supposed “trick to hide the decline.” No such phrases was used in the e-mail nor in any of the stolen e-mails for that matter. Indeed,“Make’s Nature trick” and “hide the decline” had nothing to do with each other."

He says the two phrases “had nothing to do with each other,” and people can only pretend otherwise by omitting words. Let’s consider this. Here is the original quote:

"I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (i.e. from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline."

The words people omit are prepositional phrases. All they do is clarify what the trick was. This can be seen by paring down the sentence. First, we remove the phrases listing the periods which had data added. That gives us:

"I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series… to hide the decline."

This gives us the phrase “Mike’s Nature trick”; a description of what it is,“add in the real temps to each series”; and a purpose,“to hide the decline.” We can remove the description and get:

"I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick… to hide the decline."

In other words, anyone with basic reading skills can see Mann is just making things up when he says the two phrases had nothing to do with each other.

The lack of "basic reading skills" will prevent Bozo, Oz, Spaceballs and certainly litesong from understanding this.

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

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!!!!
