Default Grassley is pushing for more ethanol content


In March, Growth Energy, an ethanol industry trade group asked the EPA for a waiver to allow the ratio of ethanol in gasoline to rise to 15 percent from 10 percent. The agency must make a decision by Dec. 1. There’s speculation that the EPA may delay a ruling, citing the need for more testing, Grassley said.
“But I would also go back with a more specific request that if you can’t make a decision on E-15, at least make a decision on E-11 or E-12,” Grassley, an Iowa Republican, said today on a conference call with reporters.

Chuck Grassley simply wants to satisfy his constituents and the problems caused by ethanol be damned. Another politician trying to "bring home the bacon" whether it is bad for the rest of the country or not.

I highly recommend sending a letter to the EPA and Grassley explaining why they should NOT increase the ethanol in our fuel.


Of course, I have searched for 30 minutes trying to figure out how to comment to the EPA without success.

These guys both parties are such assholes. He knows ethanol is not the answer to our NATIONS problems but if it will help his little corner of the world damned everyone else. These guys should not be allowed on these committees, talk about a conflict of interest. i dont know how you would form commitees without some conflicts but we need to have some real change here if we want good common sense to take hold and not the shit we have now

Last week we had a college age kid knock on our front door after dinner. He was working for a farm group taking a poll trying to gain support for ethanol fuel. I let him speak his piece for about 5 minutes, then I wanted to knock the kid out. Unfortunately for him my wife got a hold of his ear. She's a Microbiologist who works for the USDA. She knows all too well what a scam ethanol fuel is and the problems related to it. After talking to her I think he got in his car a just went home.
