I just wrote a big rant on ethanol mandates, and Blogger mulched it. I’m feeling sufficiently churlish this AM that I will not retype the whole rant, but will simply link to the article discussing the upcoming U.S. Senate hearings on the proliferation of ethanol mandates. Bottom line: it’s not the environmental silver bullet that the environmentalists and corporate agricultural interests want us to think it is.

I’ll redo the rant at some point when I’m less grumpy.
