I enjoyed watching the story on 60 minutes recently about Obama's failed Clean Energy program and all the money that has been wasted on corporate start-ups that failed.
Meanwhile I also attended the New Car show in Philly recently and noticed there was not much mention of Flex Fuel vehicles *FFV" there. They did have a Tesla electric car tucked in the corner.
Why has Obama not required that ALL NEW CARS BE FFV (E85 Ethanol) compliant by now?!?!?!?
That would have been the best thing he could have done for Clean and Independent Energy for our Nation.

Ethanol has too many disadvantages to be practical on large scale
Ethanol is 37% less efficient then gasoline
Ethanol has a lower heat of combustion (per mole, per unit of volume, and per unit of mass) that petroleum
Large amounts of arable land are required to produce the crops required to obtain ethanol, leading to problems such as soil erosion, deforestation, fertiliser run-off and salinity
Major environmental problems would arise out of the disposal of waste fermentation liquors.
Typical current engines would require modification to use high concentrations of ethanol
