For the Sake of Mankind
"It makes sense for us to collaborate for the sake of mankind."
That was a quote from the President today talking about a new agreement with Brazil regarding ethanol. And I'm pretty sure he wasn't talking about the wrestler.
I remain unconvinced that biofuels like ethanol are the place we should be putting most of our efforts when it comes to fossil fuel alternatives. It's questionable how "renewable" they actually are and it leaves open the potential for a OPEC-esque ethanol cartel (as the article cites).
It's certainly cleaner, though, and it may be the easiest and quickest alternative energy source that we can implement. Plus, maybe there's some way to redeploy our national farming resources so that we can start peeling back those farming subsidies.
