just why is george bush..and general motors…so gung-ho about corn-based ethanol as the favoured alternative fuel….?
in general motors case..a geared subsidy/credit from producing ethanol using vehicles means gm can produce two more gas-guzzlers for each ‘green’ vehicle…and still keep within federal limits….
and as for the republicans/bush..we are told it is all about the 2008 election….these new ethanol-boosting programmes will provide lots of dosh for the pollies to dish out to the farming sector…..
oh..and corn-based ethanol isn’t that green/efficient….oh dear…
