Biofuels Are a Disaster, Stop It Already
I think it is safe to say that the use of things like corn and other crops to produce biofuels simply a stupid and wrongheaded philosophy. We were told that biofuels were supposed to help break our dependence on foreign oil. Yet here I sit having to pay, if I’m lucky, $4/gallon to fill up my gas tank. If biofuels are supposed to cut our dependency on foreign oil, how come prices for both oil and gasoline are so high? Have any of these idiot politicians and their advisers ever heard of Jevon’s Paradox? And then there is the issue of food prices. Haven’t these same idiot politicians and their advisers ever heard of supply and demand and the substitution effect? Prices for food items are at an all time high and we take huge amounts of grain products and turn them into fuel. Really? That is a smart idea? Here is a suggestion for Obama, McCain or Hillary: Whichever of you dipwads ends up in the White House can you please knock off this biofuel crap?
