Corn/food, ethanol and fuel prices headed upward. These are the consequences of our government's corny ethanol mandate.

Repel the ethanol mandate now to help lower food and fuel costs!

Below is a portion of the text of an article from the following link...I think we need to see more of this if we want to make ethanol for automobile fuel a viable alternative."/story-DuPont-breaks-ground-iowa-cellulosic-ethanol-plant-0-65568""DuPont Breaks Ground On Iowa Cellulosic Ethanol Plant"

"Ethanol made from corn stover will be produced at commercial facility being built in central Iowa.

DuPont came one step closer to commercializing advanced biofuels when the company broke ground November 30 on its cellulosic ethanol manufacturing plant at Nevada, Iowa. Completion is expected by mid-2014. The $200 million facility will be among the first and largest commercial-scale cellulosic biorefineries in the world.

The new plant will produce 30 million gallons annually of ethanol from corn stalks, leaves and other plant material. The crop residue will be baled and delivered to the plant. "The stover will be gathered from cornfields within approximately a 30-mile radius of the plant," said Jim Collins, president of DuPont Industrial Biosciences. "It will be purchased from the farmers we contract with and will be stored at the plant."

I don't see anyone mandating that you buy gasoline. I do, however see that the governemnt does mandate the use of ethanol. It seems that the blame si going on the wrong shoe...

These are the consequences of our continued reliance on petroleum for energy and transportation.

Use alternatives to petroleum now to help lower food and fuel costs.

Good people, if you continue to believe the desperate people like Rider that think they own you and should mandate that you use only HIS petroeum, then we can never get past one fuel reliance. Which frankly is the reason for many of the problems we face today. One fuel reliance.
