Ethanols rise=loss of hunting lands

Saw this in the local paper today. Something most of us are aware of but I'm not sure about the average person. Glad to see it get some attention.

Re: Ethanols rise=loss of hunting lands

Ethanol is a joke but with the govt' subsidies , I don't think it's going to go away any time soon. Now there's plans to increase the gas blend to 15 or 20%! Guvment run amok!

bwire,
More articles like this need to be written and all the subsities on ethanol need to be eliminated, this is just another case of the liberal nut cases in our govt undermining capitalism.

Re: Ethanols rise=loss of hunting lands

I agree that ethanol is a joke, but I believe you'd find that the subsidies are not some kind of liberal giveaway program. Most of the legislators who push for subsidies to corn growers would consider themselves conservatives who represent very red mid western states. They'll rail about food stamps and the like but fully support tax giveaways that benefit farmers in their districts. They kinda like tax giveaways to oil companies too because they bring good paying jobs to their area. It's all about keeping the voters in the district happy.

I didn,t read the link yet but can tell you I am a farmer and this ethanol garbage is a massive pain.It has caused feed supplies to be tight and costs outrageous and is garbage and killin our engines,and vehicles.The phase separation and water absorbtion it causes is real trouble.I use additives but they are just a bandaid.

Re: Ethanols rise=loss of hunting lands

No mention in that report of the environmentally disruptive changes inherent to modern industrial agriculture techniques which apply to almost all current, major ag production methods, not just for ethanol.

The tax payer is supporting these practices that denude and erode the land, poison wildlife, and reduce natural soil nutrients.

Don't kid yourself, the petrochemical and major ag industries love the current system to [censored] with the environment. The current major ag production systems in the U.S. produce inferior products and are unsustainable. See; http://www.huffingtonpost.com/gabe-b...b_1522538.html

It's up to all of us as taxpayers to be more aware, speak up and stop supporting the current ag production system.
