Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

Ethanol is back, on steroids!!!

Energy, Ethanol, Going Green, Government / Bureaucracy, Legislation, WISCONSIN

 http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123716798764436701.html Everyone hates ethanol. blends over 10% harm engines, etc. good

 Vicki McKenna--3rd time is a charm? for the legislature?

Scott Seutter, a Republican, brings it back.

Money, money money!$$$$ It is all about money.

It is all about the corn lobby.

It ruins small engines (our generator is gummed up and not functioning thanks to reformulated gas.)

Ethanol does give power--that is why those race cars use it, but it also is not efficient as far as miles per gallon.

Out west, where you can get plain gasoline, I noticed my mileage improved about 10%.

This is a boondoggle.

Just chekc out Minnesota, a big corn state. Gov. Pawlenty is hook line and sinker into enthanol.
