Biofuels have been mentioned in earlier replies. There seems to be a misunderstanding. Biofuels are supported because they do not exist in the quantity needed to fuel the nations economy as it exists. If someone came up with a practical method of converting something to high quality fuel in the quantities that petroleum and coal are used today it would be looked on as being just as evil as hydrocarbons drawn from the ground, even if it had no byproducts and cleaned up a mess. It would still create CO2, and say it was cheap and safe, it would be anathema to the lib elitists.

Prohibition was instituted with ratification to the USC on Jan-16-1919.

With alcohol fuel out of the way Rockefellers gasoline was then able to easily and without any competition quickly take over the whole US auto engine fuel market-$$ !

Alcohol Can Be a Gas

When a U.S. Senator and a sitting governor from your own party won’t say if they support the reelection bid of the incumbent president from their party, well, that’s a political party that is verging into Jimmy Carter territory.

Party-wise that is.

Carter faced an insurgent bid from Hubert Humphrey progressives in his own party while vying for a second term as president. The result was a nasty primary contest that spilled into the Democrat National Convention in 1980.

And while the roles this time are reversed with incumbent Obama playing the part of insurgent progressive against the rest of us,...
