Deadly Brew: The Human Toll of Ethanol

There has been a documentary called Deadly Brew: The Human Toll of Ethanol provided by Bloomberg Television recently. I haven't seen it but a short review at AutoblogGreen with a video clip is available. The commentary sounds interesting and the post raises a few points for debate as well.

I like the idea of ethanol but the political tinkering with it in the U.S. has made it an exercise in pork spending, which, ironically, raises the price of pork and other foods. We shall see what happens with ethanol but I'm not optimistic.

As I understand it, if it gets to popular the land needed for crops to feed people will be used for crops to make Ethanol with.

I don't think that is a good thing. The air powered car sounds interesting but I don't know how effective it will be.

I think people should live closer to work and travel less, but they won't unless forced to.

Humans are scum, if they want to do something they tune every thing else out.

I really do not know what Ethanol is but I will look into to it.

I'm glad you will look into ethanol. We are here to provide information and get people thinking and talking. If you search the site there have been several posts on ethanol in the past. Thanks for stopping by.

Are you supporting ethanol or dissing it? And I agree- it needs more availability.

I support the concept of ethanol. I disagree with the implementation of the current ethanol policy.
