    Ethanol Debate Has Glimpse of Bipartisanship

    The top Republican and Democrat on the House Energy and Commerce Committee are finally on the same page about a controversial energy policy after reading from two completely different playbooks the last four years.
    Chairman Fred Upton, R-Mich., and ranking member Henry Waxman, D-Calif., are both undecided about what Congress should do about the renewable-fuels standard, a federal mandate established in 2005 that requires increasingly large amounts of biofuels each year to be blended with gasoline.
    “I don’t have an immediate solution. I don’t have the answer,” Upton said in a recent interview in his office. “But we’re going to have thoughtful hearings, first a couple of white papers. We’re going to see where people are. I have confidence that we’ll have a solution by going regular order.”

    The mandate is facing criticism from an informal–and unusual–coalition that includes the American Petroleum Institute, the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the National Chicken Council, and the Natural Resources Defense Council. (Actually it is correctly every other business in America)

    This Progressive ethanol corruption will not stand the light of day. The dishonored 'press' like Blooperberg and nyZt are beginning to provide cover for Obama to do the right thing. But the push is coming from all other business interests and they are finally putting out valid research papers the press could pick up. If the press really started informing America how bad and out of control Progressive ethanol is, it would be over. THe dishonored press many not be able to shelter Obama much longer if ethanol Progressive cronies do not back down.

    We all know; excluding the deluded and dishonored OLB, that methanol; with initial base load from natural gas, is the logical, rational, mature, prudent, responsible and common sense way forward. Regular and advanced renewable methanol exists. There is a massive and growing world market for it. It is a chemical building block / job creator.

      • Ah our bumptious jackanapes joins this morning. What repetitious honkering does our temulent miscreant offer to the would be Progressive lemmings this morning?

        Malism is the only logical religion for people who chose to remain 'clever' monkeys per Progressives. So self absorption is the only way to have a rewarding life?

        The scary part is Mr. Varney speaks old Harvardish and does not have to look up definitions. Something to do with classical education and often time traveling, I bet. YOu just never know when or where he might pop up. American cowboy hat with string tie in Australia?

        Even Freeman Payne doesn't seem to know when or if he will show up for his show. Talk about uncertainty principal.
