After misallocating countless billions of taxpayer dollars, the environmental groups are finally admitting they were wrong about ethanol. Imagine that, they finally figured out that burning food while people are starving in this world is a bad idea. Who would have thunk it? Unfortunately, no one will ever lose their job for backing such a boondoggle, these groups will just turn their focus to wasting taxpayer money somewhere else. Just think of all the good that could have been done with all that wasted money. Over in Europe, they are proposing that wood be used as an alternative fuel, as in back to the stone age heating and destruction of old wood forests. Unfortunately, there are endless bad ideas for them to migrate towards.
