The WSJ reports on the upcoming announcement of the Obama administration’s ethanol policy. The administration aims to increase the availability of ethanol for cars, but will take into account carbon dioxide emissions resulting from changing farming practices, including eliminating rainforests, energy costs of producing ethanol, and the like.  The ethanol industry is not pleased.

At Environment Memo we believe that all such funding would be better spent on public transportation, be it infrastructure or on planning.  There are major needs for both.
