The truth of ethanol

Dear Editor:I was never good in math or science, but I do know if you need energy it must come from something else. Go to the grocery store or the commodity exchange and realize the savings on ethanol fuel is now subsidized at the grocery store. Get it? Ethanol is raising the cost of our food products, not to mention the environmental damage that is ravaging the water tables and wells of the Midwest (miles per gallon is much worse than regular unleaded).The environmental movement is what we called “communists” 20 years a go. They hate all fossil fuels and nuclear power, but drive cars and use “nuclear power” based electricity. They love electric cars, but could care a less about the batteries that destroy our rivers, etc. Do they realize that some electric power plant far from their view, is spitting coal residue to power their electric car? Are you enviros really enviros? Not?Tom AndersonAspen Village
