    EPA turns down states' request for ethanol waiver | Comcast

    The Environmental Protection Agency has denied requests from several governors to waive production requirements for corn-based ethanol.

    A renewable fuels law requires that 13.2 billion gallons of ethanol be produced by this year and 15 billion gallons be produced by 2015. That's good for corn farmers, but it's angered poultry, hog and cattle farmers. They say they've seen big jumps in corn-based feed costs as corn is diverted to make ethanol vehicle fuel.

    States requesting the waiver say reduced corn production due to this year's drought has made the problem even worse.

    All aboard the Obama fuck train, choo-choo........:clap2:

    By the time Obama leaves office Oil and coal will be dead. We will have to rely on solar, wind and wave power to power our cities. Let us pray there's a breakthrough.

    Sounds like the requirements to get a waiver are too stringent and badly in need of revision.

    epa is more powerful than elected officials. And guess which party uses it to their advantage.

    I'm glad Idaho is the way it is. Not a lot of cars out here have cats in em.
