Energetic Senate Morons

Senate passes energy bill

The Senate passed an energy bill late Thursday that includes an increase in automobile fuel economy, new laws against energy price-gouging and a requirement for huge increases in the production of ethanol....

But the legislation provides a bonanza to farmers and the ethanol industry. It requires ethanol production to grow to at least 36 billion gallon a year by 2022, a sevenfold increase of the amount of ethanol processed last year....

In short

If you do not want to be utterly depressed, ignore everything the government does. (Sadly, that is not really an option.)

Whoa

The governement insisting on a sevenfold increase in the production of ethanol?! My my, we've come a long way since prohibition.

Refinery Disincentive

No wonder they recently scale back plans to build more refineries here in the US.  They must have know about this bill.
