The Ethanol Boondoggle

Jerry Taylor and Peter Van Doren –
January 21, 2007

Taylor and Van Doren equate corn ethanol to a religion, arguing that it, "...is more a religion than a reasoned proposition." They go on to explain how production of corn ethanol really only benefits the corn farmers and investors in ethanol plants. They also argue that ethanol will in no way help prevent terrorism or increase our national security.
