Send a copy to Governor Granholm!

How about if everyone on Enviro-Mich printed out a copy and sent it to
the Governor and tell her that her support for ethanol production
facilities all over the state is misguided, at best???  Think it would
have any impact???

Is it just me, or is Granholm turning out to be among the worst
Governor's, from an environmentalist's viewpoint, that we have ever
had?  She sure is in the pocket of the Farm Bureau if you review her
stance on ethanol from corn and her lack of any action on the CAFO
disasters.

Here is an OpEd that Jennifer Granholm should read
in today's Washington Post today (Sunday) on ethanol.

Most enviros might benefit as well.

Renewable energy through biomass does not necessarily equal greenhouse gas control/reductions.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/03/23/AR2007032301625_pf.html

Those Farm Bureau guys lurking on EM would probably benefit as well since this
entire issue is going to ultimately pit non-dairy animal agriculture against corn growers.
[i.e.  if you take the starch in grain to make ethanol, it isn't there to finish swine and beef cattle].

Nearly all of the energy analysis done of ethanol plants assume that fossil fuel energy used to
dry spent fermentation grain can be deducted from the energy needed to produce ethanol....a
phony argument and a distortion of proper energy analysis to produce ethanol.
