Quote of the Day: Love Affair with Ethanol in D.C.

We already are paying thrice for Washington's love affair with corn-based fuel, in the form of: 1) higher taxes, 2) higher gasoline prices and 3) higher food prices. Yet because of the prodigious amounts of energy and fertilizer used in its cultivation, corn-based ethanol provides little or no net reduction in CO2 over the gasoline it displaces.

~Holman W. Jenkins, Jr. in today's WSJ article, "Pork, the New Green Meat"
