If I've given the impression that I've come down hard on ethanol
in many of my posts, then let the ethanol king from Canada
set me straight. Ken Field is chairman of GreenField Ethanol, the leading producer of ethanol up north. He drives an Escalade
and believes himself to be an environmentalist. He claims ethanol offers equal fuel economy
equal to gasoline and only a 15-20 percent drop on the highway (I disagree). He says he needs subsidies to survive (I agree). Enough scorekeeping. You can read
his optimistic comments to balance out my apprehensive attitude toward ethanol.
