Rumours of massive "plot" re: Ethanol

The push is on (by the oilman president, no less) to adopt Ethanol
(derived from corn)
as a gasoline subsitute. But, as it turns out, the massive
agribusiness lobbies
may be behind it all. Apparently, more efficient sugar cane produced
ethanol from Brazil
could be pumped into the U.S. at much lower prices, but there are (so
much for free trade)
high tariffs put on it by the American government. So, will Americans
dispense with
$2.40 cent gasoline for $3.98 ethanol? Will the agricultural
industries in America become
as strong and thuggish as those in France? Will market-driven downward
pressure on prices
(you know, from competition?) drive down the price of ethanol, or will
the farmers be rioting
in Washington like they do in Paris every year?
Stick with gasoline, the price of ethanol is not worth it.

That is likely true, everything government in the USA does has lobbies
behind it.

Ethanol made from sugar cane has the advantage of using bagasse (a
byproduct of sugar cane processing) to fuel the process to make ethanol.
However, the ethanol making process can be fueled by any energy source
that we cannot use a car. Such as wind, solar, nuke, hydroelectric, etc.

The problem is that some ethanol is made using oil based fuels. Which is
just plain silly. Take oil out of the process and ethanol is just fine as
fuel for vehicles. It's the best way to use the existing infastructure.
It makes for a great 'battery' for unusable (in a car) energy sources if
nothing else.
