Question Time

Good Question:

They note that "the government-subsidized burning of our food supply to create ethanol has both increased carbon dioxide emissions and driven up food prices at a startling rate" and join the growing chorus to end the mandate.

Add the fact that it takes more energy to produce a gallon of ethanol than you get out of it, and that it requires an enormous amount of another increasingly precious resource — water — in order to process this inefficient fuel, and you wonder how ethanol was ever considered green to begin with.

So who's going to pull a George Stephanopoulos, and ask Obama about his support for Third-World-starving ethanol policy, just ahead of the Indiana primary?
