It is good to know that Al Gore is proud of supporting, even "saving," corn-based ethanol (from a pro-ethanol site):
Vice-President Al Gore
Third Annual Farm Journal Conference, December 1, 1998
was also proud to stand up for the ethanol tax exemption when it was
under attack in the Congress -- at one point, supplying a tie-breaking
vote in the Senate to save it. The more we can make this home-grown
fuel a successful, widely-used product, the better-off our farmers and
our environment will be."
It is good to know that when the economic and environmental toll from our disastrous subsidization of corn ethanol is finally tallied, we will know where to send the bill.
