Biofuels Are Bad for the Environment

Biofuels like ethanol produce less energy than proper gasoline. But they produce just as much in terms of pollutants:

The 275 Biofuel and ethanol manufacturers in the US released 12 million tons of toxic materials into the air in 2022 compared to 15 million emitted by oil refineries, [a new] report detailed.

Further, these plants released more of four kinds of toxic chemicals that can cause vomiting, diarrhea and shortness of breath in the short term, and have been linked to cancer in the long term.

These green fuel companies use products like corn or vegetable oil to make fuel instead of petroleum.

In addition to being inefficient, using food as fuel drives up the price of food.

As for the lunatic notion that the weather wants us to use biofuels,

The biofuel plants in the US emitted 33 million tons of greenhouse gasses in 2022.

Fortunately, greenhouse gases tend to be harmless. Corn produces 24% more carbon emissions than regular fuel, but that actually helps the plants to grow.

The same is not true of hexane, acetaldehyde, acrolein, and formaldehyde, all of which are produced in greater abundance by biofuel plants than traditional oil and gas refineries.

Can you guess who is paying for biofuel foolishness? That’s right; you:

Even as reports of this sort are increasing, the ‘green fuel’ industry is booming.

This is thanks in part to increased funding from the Biden administration, which has allocated billions in funds for developing a green aviation fuel, Inside Climate News reported.

Presumably the purpose is to launder taxpayer money to pay off campaign donors, as under Obama.

It isn’t as if biofuels do nothing to please the climate. Approximately 40% of the corn grown in the USA goes to ethanol. Growing all that corn has required deforestation. Bill Gates says trees cause global warming.

On a tip from ABC of the ANC.
