Less Ethanol

This is good news.

“The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is considering a proposal that would set next year’s target for use of renewable fuels at 15.21 billion gallons, less than the 18.15-billion gallon 2014 target established in the law, according to the sources, who said the new figures have circulated in Washington policy circles over the past week.

At 15.21 billion gallons, the proposal would leave room only for some 13 billion gallons of corn-based ethanol to be blended into the nation’s gasoline supply – down from 13.8 billion this year and 14.4 billion required by law for 2014.”

Ethanol may or may not even result in lower CO2 emissions than oil, and it is HORRIBLE for internal combustion engines.  This would be a step in the right direction.
