On Tuesday, a group of 50 international scientists released a comprehensive new report on the science of climate change that concluded that evidence now leans against global warming resulting from human-related greenhouse gas emissions. The report, which cites thousands of peer-reviewed articles the United Nations-sponsored panel on climate change ignored, also found that "no empirical evidence exists to substantiate the claim that 2°C of warming presents a threat to planetary ecologies or environments" and no convincing case can be made that "a warming will be more economically costly than an equivalent cooling." The U.N.'s panel is scheduled to release its next report next month.

Ethanol industry is devastating to wildlife and clean water. It promotes farming marginal lands, burning sloughs then ditching and tiling, and busting up native prairie to put more land in row crops. Big Ag loves this because they sell more seed and fertilizer. We subsidize the corn, subsidize the ethanol plants, and subsidize the ethanol that goes in our tanks for less gas mileage. What a winning program.

Who gives a hoot about ethanol? Lower corn prices should mean lower food prices. What do you think they feed livestock? Ethanol cost more in money and energy to produce. Give me some cheap gasoline.
