Another Made Up Mandate on Energy that Doesn't Exist

The fact that cellulosic ethanol is a laboratory curiosity does not seem to phase the infantile intelligence of the EPA. The total commercial(term use loosely)of this substance could fit in a average sized trash can. All the wishing in the world can not change that fact. Until our government in all its glorious ignorance can become acquainted with reality, stupidity like this will continue unabated. At this point we as Americans must ask ourselves who works for who in this country?

You don't think dreaming it, will achieve it?

Oops! I meant to post that comment on MrPaul's comment. Though, Derfel, I do love your term "laboratory curiosity."

Requiring the citizens of the kingdom to purchase something that doesn’t exist, and then fining them for not doing it sounds more like the behavior of a tinhorn dictator than the actions of a global superpower—but then, maybe the “superpower” status has led the US government to believe that it can “let the wish be father to the thought.”

Perhaps Congress, the authors of the Clean Air Act, and, more specifically, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)—and even biofuel lobbyists—have attended too many motivational seminars in which they were taught: “If you can dream it, then you can achieve it.”...
