What Others are Saying
The statements made that we are using increased fossil fuels to make ethanol seem ridiculous. Common sense would say that we are going to use the same amount of fossil fuels to grow the corn whether it goes for ethanol or to raise livestock or other corn based products. I also assume the opponents of ethanol have a limited knowledge of the impact ethanol and farming has on our economy. Remodels on the farm buildings, new construction, implement dealers, parts dealers, all of our main street business are benefiting from the ethanol industry. Again how do we get this simple message to the opponents of the ethanol industry?
