  • AP report: The ethanol push is "an ecological disaster" [View news story]
    Bear bait. Obama's not to blame for the problem. He isn't even aware of it and it just got worse during his White House occupancy time.

    Why have we banned imports of sugar based ethanol and why can't we produce it here. Are sugar based and corn based ethanol's mutually exclusive?

    If we want a pure earth we will just have to give up all carbon based energy. Of course, many other countries will not so, as Hillary says, what difference does it make. Government knows best. :-(

  • Vehicle Miles Driven: Population-Adjusted Fractionally Off Its Post-Crisis Low [View article]
    Makes sense. When gas was a dollar fifty a gallon, we could ride 60 miles to the Sam's Club and Costco and save enough on the purchases to make it worthwhile. At three fifty a gallon, the big stores aren't competitive with the local Wal-marts and supermarkets. And the mrs. uses mail order to reduce her shopping trips to the big city to a few times a year.
