Here's another Inconvenient Truth: A Canadian study has found that ethanol burns no cleaner than gasoline in today's vehicles. Previous studies, and I no longer have the links for this, have shown that it takes more energy to make ethanol than it produces, making ethanol rank right up there with perpetual motion machines.

I'm all for a cleaner environment. But we as voters have to demand better fuel efficiency from our car makers. Don't buy an SUV until they hit 30 mpg or better! So write your congresscritter and demand it.

And without a couple of thousand in the envelope, don't be surprised if you get an answer like: "This is a very complicated issue" and "effects to the economy" and "when Hell freezes over."
